    Thanks for encouraging me to come play. I had a lot of fun. And I got to use power tools.

    If anyone needs a ride to or from and you haven't tried Uber yet here is a code for $20 off the ride LGF2A. Just want to make sure a ride doesn't keep anyone away

    2 · October 24

    • Rachel

      In most cases that should cover most of your ride to be honest. I've rarely taken a fare for more than that

      I appreciate the thought, but I'm basically unemployed now, and am trying to keep costs down as much as poss (ie close to $0), so I can at least spend some $ at the event itself.

  • TheNovie

    Sad that I may not be able to go "Rrrrr." I am having carpets put into my RadioBroadcast Studio." Would anyone mind terrible if I came late. Will I miss too much?

  • Tricia

    Hey, really looking forward to this! I'm set w/a ride to the event, but it would be really great to get a ride home w/someone (Sat night). I live nr Monroe Rd and Sardis Rd North and will leave when you want to leave. Normally I would take the bus, but I'll be wearing my grandma's amazing vintage gold silk dress and would like to protect it. Pls msg me via Meetup if this is a possibility and we'll talk, thx :-)

    • Joey

      Yes, the donation team worked incredibly hard. I did have to frisk a few of them going out the door, though.

    I am a little confused as to the hours of the "excellent adventure". My ticket indicates that it is 7PM to midnight. The website says 2PM to midnight. What gives? Thans.

    1 · October 24

    • Joey

      The main event (which requires a ticket) is 7 PM - Midnight. But we have several free events (Gaming, Film Fest, Scavenger Hunt) from 2-7 (which have separate meetups).

    I am a little off of my schedule most of the time, but I am actively seeking out geek adventures that have a bit of know how in the art of story telling and making an online story, crossing the paranormal with sci-fi. Any I hope to be there October 25. But in the event that I don't make it. -- If anyone knows anyone - let me know.
