FMGC 2013 - Planning, Roster, Suggestions, Invites


  • Customizer

    I’m hoping to get all three of us from the podcast up this year. Last year Mugzy couldn’t make it. I’m going to look into getting a small RV and just park it at the club. Then there’ll be no need to stop drinking!

    LOL I can’t wait…

    How much do they cost to rent?

    Good idea but there is still a chance I may not be able to make it – sometimes life has it’s way of not cooperating with fun. I suggest adding a 6th person for the room & board plan below and if I make it, I’ll just cover my own room.

    @Young:

    This is what I purpose on the weekend of the FMGC 2013.

    Three of the following members stay at my place, and two stay at a near by hotel in a room in which all 5 members split the cost (2 nights).

    Suprise Attack- Syracuse
    Djensen- San Francisco
    Gargantua- British Columbia
    Vance- New Brunswick
    Axisplaya- Montreal

    However, each must do their best to arrive in Toronto Friday morning, for an epic game of G40.2 at my place beginning around noon. The next day we will all go to the convention together, and Sunday as well.

    Sound good?

    No idea. I figure it’s pointless to even check on it until after 21-Dec anyway lol

    It’s all good, I’m not gonna add anyone else because my place is better suited for 2 rather than 3, but I can fit three for sure if I have too. Even if you want your own room, you can still take a seat at our game on Friday (if you get into town early enough), and if you can’t for any reason, there are lots of locals that can fill in to make a full game.

    @djensen:

    Keep in mind that the Spring Gathering happened the weekend after FMGC last year, which takes place in Ohio.

    What is this “Spring Gathering”. Is it A&A related?

    Yes, it is run by Greg Smorey in Cincinnati.

    Thanks David. Anywhere I can find more info, or should I just check back here?


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    Well, since they’re both in April I think you should come to FMGC 2013 instead! (sorry Greg)

    Unless you live next door to Cincinnati, then you should go to both!

    I would love to come to FMGC, but I will say that compared to Vancouver, Cincinnati is practically next door to Toledo.



  • Yea it might be close than Toronto too, would be nice to see ya there. Where esle can you go and meet the personalities who are Gargantua, Axisplayer, young Grasshopper, Most Holy and his crew, Vance says he’ll be there , Mr Malichicrunch, and many more.
    I’m thinking I might try to pull off the one in Indianapolis too

    My impression was that FMGC was in British Columbia… is it in Toronto or is that a different venue?


  • Customizer

    Oshawa Ontario. Just outside Toronto. Awesome venue. Awesome people.



  • I’m looking forward to hearing more about this as it approaches.  I am probably going to join you guys this year.



  • Plan on it and make it so, I think it will be on Hitler’s Birthday again, get your passport in order and there are hotels in Oshawa.
    Keep on checking for the latest info



  • I live in the Toronto area… so there will be no flying or Border crossings for me.


  • '12

    I’m all in again this year.  It was great last year and I came not knowing anyone personally but merely through a few games online and a few discussion thread posts.  Can’t wait for this year.  Most Holy, we should do a convoy from Niagara this year!  I’m 15 miles from Buffalo, while I can’t cross the border into the US I would be willing to drive anyone who flies into Buffalo and can taxi across the border into Fort Erie.  Pret near on my way……

    Most Holy, keep me informed on the RV plan, sounds like a hoot!  I’d sleep in my Jimmy if I could run a power cord to you for a heater!  Thanks again for the ride to the hotel and for boosting my battery twice!  Just to let ya know, I did get a new battery!


  • Customizer

    No problem on the boosts bro. I looked into the Rv price for a weekend and its way out of range. Looks like motel again though a closer one would be better.


  • '12

    What about a trailer?  I could tug it up there for ya……  In fact a  buddy in Fort Erie said I could borrow his any time, its more of a hunting trailer but he does bring his girlfriend on occasion so how bad could it be.  Mind you, I might change the sheets…  But if you had access to a better bedroom on wheels, again, I’d tug it up… Depending on timing etc we could car pool if the situation calls for it.


  • Customizer

    Sounds like a good idea. Anything to reduce back and forth travel and increase drinking time!



  • I know a lot of dirt cheap motels if you’re interested in bringing your own sheets and pillows (don’t bring a black light).


  • Customizer

    We’re a pretty scummy lot. More interested in something closer than where we were. On Mapquest the Best Western looked like walking distance.

    YA, but what about stumbling distance? you would have to rent a cot in the museum.

    Hah, I told you it was nowhere near walking distance.  😉

    Unfortunately that’s the closest hotel/motel accommodations to the hall.  If the event gets any bigger and has to move out of the RCAF Hall then it may very well end up at somewhere like the Best Western conference room instead (in which case you could stumble to your room easily enough).


  • Customizer

    Or drag the bed and cooler right down to the conference room.
