Hello everyone!

So every year around the holidays our humble board game group here in Sheboygan has an all day (and night) gaming extravaganza. I realize this may not be very exciting for most of you, what with your frequent game days and vast gaming libraries. However, it is always a great time with lots of good food, drink, gamers, and games.

The game day will be held at our regular gaming venue, my employer, Community Bank and Trust, on the second floor of their Sheboygan Falls location. They have two different rooms we can use, depending on the size of our group - the first holding 16 gamers, the second holding 50+ gamers! Both spaces are complete with great lighting, spacious tables, very comfortable seating, and enough room for a game library and food.

If anyone is interested, please let me know via this thread. We are currently looking at two different dates for this, and knowing how much, if any, participation we can expect from our gaming brethren to the west, north, or south will help us decide which day to go with. If interested, please let me know which of the following works best for you:

Wednesday, December 26th
Friday, December 28th

For either day we'd start at 8 or 9 in the morning and we'd go until whenever (last year was 2a), come and go as you please. Attendees would be expected to bring food and/or drinks to share and any games they'd like to see hit the table.

Thanks guys!
-Chris Dunbar

Chris:

Thank you very much for the invite. I don't know what days I'm available this holiday season yet, but if I can make it, I will. We have family members that are expecting a baby around this time, so we are all playing it by ear. Haven't played with you in a while and would enjoy it. Please let us know the final day that is selected.

Chris - please let us know what date you settle on. I know I'd be able to head over for a day of gaming in the big house. I can only imagine the fancy chairs. Not to mention to fancy artwork that no doubt adorns the walls. :-)

Hey guys! Thanks for the responses! We finally have the details worked out. Here they are (copied from my Facebook Event because I'm lazy):

Date: Friday, December 28th
Time: 8a to at least midnight
Where: 1160 Fond Du Lac Ave, Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085

Come hang with the awesome Sheboygan gaming group for a day of great food, drinks, gamers, and games!

We'll be using the board room at my employer, Community Bank and Trust in Sheboygan Falls. The room features great lighting, spacious tables, comfortable chairs, and, being that it is on the 2nd floor, plenty of privacy for boisterous smack-talk!

I will be providing a party sub for lunch, and a variety of soda. There is also coffee and water available onsite. If attending, please plan on bringing something to share (chips, cookies, fruit, veggies, etc.). When evening comes, if people are hungry and we've run out of food, we can order pizzas or some such for dinner. Also, please bring any games you feel like getting to the table.

IMPORTANT - If you plan on attending, please leave the time you plan on arriving in a comment so we can plan games accordingly that day. Nothing is worse than starting a couple of 4 hour games 30 minutes before someone shows up.

Onsite info:

The bank will be open from 9a to 5p, but we have access to the building before and after that time. If you plan on arriving before or after business hours, or you've never been to this location before, please call my cell phone at 920.889.9008 when you arrive so someone can come down and show you the way up.

No matter when you arrive, please enter through the side door on the west side of the building (the side that faces Piggly Wiggly).

Hope to see you there!

Alright guys, we're just a couple of days away. Who's in for sure, and who's out? Having an accurate head count will allow me to better plan for food. Thanks!
