Well, the thing is, what's usual? We actually didn't take a break last year, we few just kept going and it went well. I plan on being there June 28th, same time as usual. I have a list of topics or, depending on who shows, we can talk Hal-Con. Either way, I'm looking forward to it!

Sorry haven't been to the last few, other things got in my way. I won't be able to make the June one either as I have a family BBQ, I may show up after 8 though for a short bit.

Good evening y'all! There will likely not be a July gathering due to schedules being all over the place this month. If there are a group who are interrested, please say so, and things can be arearranged, but we figured with smaller numbers lately, it was best to cut July out for now.

However, there is A LOT of plans being made for Hal-Con, and we're looking for interested game masters who want to run games. Please register at the Hal-Con website if you're interested. Also, feel free to get involved here too!

Cheers!

That is unknown at this time. It's something we have to discuss at some point. With people's varied schedules, we were not getting a decent turnout in the past few months. We will see after the Con.

Hal-Con ROCKED!!!!

ahem... now that that was said... I have had several people ask me at the Con if Mastering Mastering was going to start up again. Personally, I'd love to see it go again. The trick is scheduling and location. Just us Cafe became too busy, frankly. It was hard to secure space there near the end. Second, and more importantly, scheduling seemed to be difficult.

Of course, I realize that not everyone can be pleased. But if we could get a group to commit to a certain time, then we might have something. After much brain-exploration, I'm looking at getting a room at Quantum Frontier, it's right up their alley for events to host. I'm opening this to anyone interested in sharing ideas about game mastering - drop a message here and let me know when you think a suitable time to meet would be. Like before, we'd be looking at once a month.

So, what do you say?

Well I never had a chance to get to any before but I would definitely make a concerted effort if it started up again. It is a subject I enjoy speaking about immensely.

my schedule is a lot more stable than it used to be so any evening is usually good right now.

Hear Ye! Hear ye! Here we go!

After some consultation and research, it looks like we have a new venue to try. I'd like to propose meeting once a month at Quantum Frontier on Robie Street, on a Saturday from 2:30 - 5 pm. This time frame allows people to get things done early on Saturday, as well as leaving their Saturday nights still open. The last Saturday of each month seems like a decent day to gather. Quantum closes at 5 on Saturdays, FYI.

We'd be meeting upstairs, and perhaps sharing some space with some other players, but it shouldn't be crazy. I suggest we begin in the new year, as Christmas is just around the bend, unless y'all want to give it a shot and get together on December 29th.

Another option is still meeting on Thursday nights as Quantum is open until 9pm. I have to admit, I personally prefer the Saturday option for its flexibility and other options.

Having spoken with some fellow Gel'Dudes and Hal-Con gamers, we could have a very busy and interesting topic schedule with various presentations as we get closer to next year's Con. Exciting stuff!

So, what do you think?

Thanks for the feedback Malkari! But at this point, we're still looking at January 26th for our return to the dark side. Looking forward to meeting you!
