The year is slipping away even faster than normal! I need to lock in who's coming to help us out and who's not (so that I can do badge allocations so you can sign up for events).

For those who have never heard, our standard deal is that if you can get yourself to Indy and feed yourself and give us a large portion of your weekend. I will get you a badge into the convention and a roof over your head (though it may be carpet instead of a mattress under it). You also get access to cool alternate inked dice that must be earned and can't be bought.

I assume Chuck, Cliff, Tiffany, JohnK, Dan, Russ. (please confirm guys)

I would really love another 4-8 people since we are doing both Dragon Diceā„¢™ and Daemon Diceā„¢™ demo's this year.

So who else wants to confirm themselves? Who is interested and needs to be talked into it?

w/o you guys helping to man (or woman) the tables, the average convention goer will just walk on by...

(yes, you might recognize this VERY familiar post...)

I will be there. So will Paul. Paul will also be bringing along his girlfriend, Shannon (who has never been to a GenCon). Paul and I will teach Shannon how to demo Daemon Diceā„¢ as well as she would be available for whatever else in the booth.

Pat and Carol will be doing their own thing, we won't see much of them.

There is also a Black Inked Lord and a Black Inked Crusader.

If you want to play in (and win) any events (that have a minimum attendance), then we have different dice. Some are alternate inked Zealots and the ULTIMATE tournament prize are prototypes of dice. Sometimes with alternate plastics, sometimes alternate ink.

This year I'm hoping to have something new as tournament prizes, some un-tumbled, un-inked Lava Elf 3 pt units.

My list is very short!

If you've ever helped or expressed interested in helping I will be contacting you privately to bug you again.

You could post a yea or nay here to save me the effort.

I'm way behind this year and want to get any badges to you early enough that gencon will just refund you and not make you jump through hoops.

I am currently in a very intense series of negotiations with the Fiancee. We have agreed to go to PAX Prime this year together and I'll be helping out with the booth there but we just got a refund from American Airlines for another previous trip so I may in fact be able to come to Gencon as well, assuming I can bum lodgings.
That is still pretty up in the air however, should know before the week is out.

Yes, you can bum lodging and I'll take care of your badges. Bring the wife too! Anyone can demo, who can demo!

I maybe interested but I have a pretty full schedule so it would only be a couple of hours at best.

I previously confirmed to Cliff that I would be there but might as well add it here as well. I'll be arriving on the usual flight Wednesday afternoon and flying out Sunday night.

Are you still in need of additional volunteers? I have a friend that may be wanting to come to Gencon this year that plays Dragon Diceā„¢ occasionally with me and is looking at his options and the like

Ok, I will let him know and try to figure out arrangements with him shortly in that case. He played Dragon Diceā„¢ with me for a while, but got a little frustrated with Scalders so he hasn't picked it up in a while. I'd like to see if this would help spark his interest again as well Twisted Evil

Let me know as soon as you can. If he needs a GM badge from us, then I have to put the order in.

If we wait too long, then he will end up with two badges and it is an ugly painful process to get the other one refunded.(which I can't do for them)

I'm preparing to do the schedule and it's the 11th hour anyway. We are nearing the date where Gencon won't let me get another GM badge.

So do you need one or...?



Note: I will be starting a new thread in the rep area for the scheduling...
