OK guys, Warning Order

First ever
Dragoons Assembly

21-23 February 2020, Raleigh NC

Working on finalizing venue now; one option is waaaaay cheaper, but very space-limited.

A full weekend of gaming with the dragoons and hanging out with friends while doing so.

Thanks for putting in the effort, Bayo.
No matter if it works out or not, trying is admirable.
Historicon, and even Origins, started as small, local game cons.  Then they grew.
Please keep us posted.  Raleigh is a long drive, but would consider it.

I brought this up to my wife this past weekend. She wasn't totally against it. I'll have to see.

It’s a four hour drive for me, so it’s a possibility for me.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

Based on some planning discussions tonight, we're looking to nail down some venue info in the next few weeks, but we're pretty committed to this weekend, so if you want to start looking into travel and/or time off requests with work, you've got a target to work with

We're changing the date to the fall.  Lots of issues came up w/ planning, not least of which was a bunch of personal crap I had to deal with.

Will put out detailed dates when we figure them out.

Unless something goes seriously sideways I wouldn't be able to attend any gathering this year.  However, I would like to put my .02 on dates.  How about the first week of October?

honestly, we're going to have to see what the football schedule is here, since we'll need to work around those dates for hotels.

Assuming that Captain Tripps still isn't infecting the world and this stays a small, ACD thing only, this fall is doable for me.

I actually don't really like games.

Isn't it just?  ;D

Again for me, not sure but not saying 'no way,' at least not yet.

I suspect that, all things considered, regrettably, I won't be there.  :(
