Our Fearless Leader has informed the masses!
ADMISSION COST AND EARLY REGISTRATION
Our total cost for the room is going to be $175 per
day vs. the $100 per day we paid last year. That's going to be $700 for the
room for 4 days. We have $266 in the bank from last year, and if we collect
about the same amount of income as we have the last 2 years, we can cover the
cost, at least for this year. So I'm leaving admission costs the same this
year: $10 per person per day, and we'll still have the "buy 3 days get
the 4th day free" bonus for those who pay in advance. That's a long 4-day
weekend of open gaming for only $30 per person!
If you would like to take advantage of the bonus and pay in advance,
you can send a check for the proper amount to me at:
Crystal Lake, IL 60014
Just include a note saying who's attending and
for what days. I'll send a reply email that will be your receipt.
WHAT IS LUDOPHILIA?
For those who may have missed out for the last 3 years,
Ludophilia is the name we've given to our annual local gathering for a 4-day
boardgaming extravaganza in the northwest suburbs of Chicago! It's much too
friendly and informal to be called a "convention". It's just an excuse for
friends and friends-of-friends to get together in a large-ish hotel conference
room with a couple hundred board games and have the chance to strategize,
socialize, and relax uninterrupted. I bring a select library of games (and
other people bring their favorites, too, of course), and then it's open house at
the hotel Thursday through the
Sunday! Set up your own lodging
plans if you want to stay overnight, and everyone is responsible for their own
food and drink.
The weekend for Ludophilia 4 is
Thursday, May 15th, through
Sunday, May 18th, 2014.
Please mark your calendars! You'll see some additional reminders from me as
the time draws nearer.
