DIRECTIONS

The easiest way to get to Lake Monticello is to take VA-53 East for roughly ten miles.  Take a left onto Lake Monticello Rd for roughly 3 miles.  Take a right onto Ashlawn Blvd.  Stop at the Lake Monticello gate.  Tell them you are there for CoveCon.  Go straight through the gate until you see the clubhouse on the right.  Park in any spot around the clubhouse.  The terrace game room is downstairs in the clubhouse.

      Craig, I read the article. It was impressive! I sent you an email. Could you please take a look?

    I think I left a blue reusable water bottle in the clubhouse. It's not a huge deal if it's lost but I'm wondering if anyone found it or know the number I could call to just check and see if it got picked up

    April 15, 2014

    • Craig G.

      I cannot stay, but I will drop it off.

      April 16, 2014

    • Craig G.

      I am not sure I will be able to drop off the bottle tonight. I have to pick up the kids by 6. Is there any other way I can get it to you?

      April 17, 2014

  • Colin T.

    I think I may have left my cell phone charger. Any chance someone picked it up? It is a Samsung that was plugged in near the microwave.

    April 14, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Yes, now I have to remember where I put it! I must have put it in my bag. I will look tonight.

      April 14, 2014

    • Craig G.

      I have it, how do you want to get it?

    I had a lot of fun even I had the toothache lol. A lot of thanks to everyone who taught and played with me. Thank you for organizing, Craig!

    Thank you all for coming out and spending the day with us! It was a great turnout and a lot of fun. Thank you to all those that ran games, brought food and help organize in any way (which was most everyone!). Can't wait until 2015!

    When you get to the Lake and park at the Clubhouse... Once you pass through the main clubhouse doors (they are hard to miss) turn immediately to your right. Just around the corner you will find a flight of stairs, take those (They bend to the left and down). Once you are downstairs walk straight ahead, you will see CoveCon all set up. Play games. :)

    I'll bring Jarts. Remember that one!?? Giant, deadly darts you throw straight up in the air in the hopes of having it landing in your opponents circle!! It was soooooo dangerous....er...I mean FUN!...that they no longer sell it! Great classic.


    ^________ yeah, all that was a lie.

    April 10, 2014

    • David S.

      You mean "Natural Selection Darts!"

      1 · April 10, 2014

  • Keywood C.

    I can bring my Carabande (Pitch Car) game if you like. I have two copies of this game plus the expansion. The kids will probably enjoy playing it, but I'll need a big table.

    April 10, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Sounds great, thanks! I'm pretty sure there will be a big table for you.

      April 10, 2014

  • Craig G.

    2 days! Everything is set! The Lake Monticello main gate knows about CoveCon and will let everyone in. A reporter from Fluvanna Review will be coming in the afternoon to ask people questions and do a write up on the event/group. So get your catch phrases ready and be prepared for fun!

    2 · April 10, 2014

  • Craig G.

    Only 5 days left! The room is officially booked, the potluck is filling up, don't forget to sign up if you haven't. I have been very busy at work, which is why I haven't been in touch much, but Friday I have off to spend the whole day planning and organizing to make CoveCon a great day!

    1 · April 8, 2014

  • Kelly C.

    I've transitioned into my officially annoying stage: those of you who haven't committed to bring something for the potluck, head over to the meetup (link in rundown above) and stake a claim on something simple: plates, napkins, plasticware, soda, ice, that kind of thing. It's an easy way to help out! Thanks!

    1 · April 5, 2014

  • Craig G.

    Hey guys, some people don't realize there is open gaming all day at CoveCon. If you see people that are not signed up please spread the word. You do not have to sign up for any games beforehand. Come out, meet people, pick a game, and play!

    April 4, 2014

  • Kelly C.

    10 days away! Don't forget to rsvp to the potluck and let us know what you're bringing- then we won't have to go hungry while we play the day away!

    2 · April 2, 2014

    • David S.

      Truffles are in the works. :) AKA "Cannonballs" ;)

    My fiancée is getting her taxes done this day, so we're going to be a bit late.

    April 2, 2014

      No problem, staying the whole 12 hours is not required. Looking forward to meeting you.

    I have just confirmed our first two ‘guests of honor’ for CoveCon 2014. Coleman Charlton and Morgan Dontanville from MayFair Games will be attending CoveCon 2014. Coleman is Game Developer & Editor at MayFair and Morgan is the designer of Asgard’s Chosen published by MayFair. Coleman has agreed to demo any MayFair games we want. So what would you guys like to see?

    • Dustin H.

      I'd also be interested in London or Nuns on the Run for a true Mayfair game.

    Is there a registration fee or suggested donation for this event?

    January 9, 2014

    • Craig G.

      It is free, donations will be accepted, very small ones, at the door if people have fun and feel it's worth paying for.
