I just got off the phone with the Arlington Co. Fire Station at Ballston (this is what I do at work when I'm terminally bored). Someone has the room from 1pm to 3pm, but past that, it's open, and we can get it if we want it. As I mentioned before, it's somewhat metro-friendly (about a mile from the Ballston station, I think), can hold about 20 folks, and, best of all, it's free. I'm not sure what the seating situation is, but I'll drag along a folding table in teh trunk of my car, and if worst comes to worst, I'm not adverse to sitting on the floor to game. I'll ask about this if I contact them again (though I can't imagine a meeting room without these sorts of things).
So, here's the scoop: I'm willing to go and arrange to have the room from 5pm to 9pm (they close at 10pm, and that will give us a bit of extra time to pack out our gear). I just need buy-in, most importantly from our fearless leaders: Cale, Shannon, Shades, I'm looking in your direction. I posted the URL with the physical address farther upstream in this thread; GoogleMap it if you need to, to make sure you can get there. If I have a resounding chorus of "yeahs," or a stony silence, by this time tomorrow, I'll go ahead and get us the spot. Only if I hear "no" from the group will I halt this plan. If it turns out that we need to cancel our spot, I don't believe it will hurt us. After all, it's a free room.
Past that, I think we're good. I'm still up for running Savage Worlds, Dark has volunteered to run his game Khymer, and Jesse's contemplating d20 Cthulhu. Three games, at six seats a game, gives us 18 spots. It would be good if we could get a fourth to be our "standby guy," in case one of us in unable to do his thing.
At this point, I need everyone's input for this plan. Please let me know, either on this board or through email, if this works for you.
