Game Fest South report and GFS2 2009 dates
Tuesday, August 26, 2008 2:24 PM
The first Game Fest South in Chattanooga went very well. We had around 65 gamers. The space was fantastic and everyone seemed to have a really good time. Best of all, we filled enough rooms that there will be a Game Fest South 2.
Having spent the better part of an hour on the phone with Joy at the Choo Choo, the date is August 13-16, 2009. We looked at every other possible date and August is the only available spot in terms of their calendar and mine. I looked at May 16, but Crystal room is not available. When you split buildings, the Choo Choo loses much of its charm.
August 13-16, 2009 is the same weekend at GenCon. Is is the week after WBC and two weeks before Dragon*Con. We well again be able to get the $87 room rate.
Now I can start trying to find a hotel for the Atlanta Game Fest in January. I'll announce those dates when I get them.
