This time we have reserved the meeting hall in the Simi Valley Library. Pictures are available in the Photo section as to what the venue looks like.
I figured it would be in our best interest to venture our to a couple of different venues before deciding which one we like the best.
The Library has a strict set a rules we must adhere to, but the benefit to this is we get our own large space (can hold up to 150 people!) similar to a convention styled setup.
There are NO meals allowed, but the rules allow for "light refreshments." When asked, the administrator mentioned that things like juice and crackers were fine just not full meals and things like cake. To me this sounds like things like chips, sodas, water, and snacks are okay. The room also has a door that exits right onto the main entrance in an open area... So if food is extremely important you would be able to eat out there.. Just make sure you clean up after yourself. Maybe we can all chip in for pizzas? We'll just eat them outside to avoid rule conflicts. Let's talk about some ideas around this.
The rules also state this event must be open to the public. Honestly, I don't have any issue with this rule as more gamers means more fun and games. On the off chance someone not from Meetup shows up please do not turn them away.
Last, the price for 5+ hours is 100 dollars. The latest we can go is until 9pm (which I have reserved). I have marked the end time 30 minutes early so we have an appropiate amount of time to clean up. There will be no member fees/event admission charges so if you would like to donate to the cause it will be welcomed! Just get in contact with either Julia or Myself. Donations are NOT mandatory and will 100% go towards funding this event or the next.
I hope to see you there,
