Time to finish the year off with good food, drink and games around other friends and acquaintances! For those who plan to drink just keep it in moderation. Not caring to have peope go too far and become a problem or get sick.
Later in the evening after dinner time I will try to take over the projector computer or the computer/TV in the bedroom at the end of the house to either show folks some old cartoons, animated movies or car shows (Top gear, Grand Tour, fifth gear etc) that the crowd is in the mood to see. You are welcome ot bring any console systems here or shows to show folks.
I lack good amounts of board games so if you wanna entertain me or others with some please bring some with you. I have Arkham Horror, Formula D with many expansion packs, Rally Cup!, and a few others.

Food plans for this meet: I still do not have income from my new career yet to merit splurging a lot on food/drinks/etc. for 20-40 people unfortunately. So it will be mostly a self-serve meet again. There are 2 kitchens here at your disposal to use to cook whatever you want for yourself or for others. There is also a binder by the couches in the upstairs den that list all the restaurants around the area that deliver or are available to sit in!
Enjoy time around others at the fire pit, back yard cleaned up and ready to play ball in, set up tents in or simply enjoy the fire pit at night time or chill on the deck if gaming/playing pool isn't your thing. 20-40 seem to come to this on average, but there are 2 floors, garage space and some rooms on my half of the house to divide up into small groups if folks want. There are 5 bedrooms available to put people in who want to crash here for the meet. Some rooms only have a twin bed in it, some have a full or queen bed in it and floor space for more to crash in. If you plan to bring a dog here PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN ADVANCE. I have to get the cats put away in my bedroom as they don't get along well with dogs. The dog will be solely your responsibility to take care of while here. if it misbehaves and/or starts to use my floors as a restroom you will be told to clean it up. if it keeps happening I will have to ask that the pet(s) not be allowed at my house anymore.
I will have a lot of blank write-able badges you can (and encouraged!) to use to help everyone know who is who. I have clips and pouches they can be stored in if don't want to stick the badge directly on your shirt. (And if any are willing to be the badge manager to help folks put on/have badges while here please let me know. I'd appreciate it!)
Please do not park at the school across the street, there are plenty of parking spaces available on my driveway and along the curb near my house and there is also the yard in case there is any additional parking necessary. Just be warned that if the grass is wet there is potential for your car to get stuck in it. I have tow rope and such to help yank people out if needed.
There are three (3) indoor-only cats here at the house. Please keep doors and screens to outside closed to prevent them from escaping.
