Default Talcon 2013 - Talcon turns 10! (and i turn 32, but let's not talk about that)

Ok guys, many of you know the drill by now- Each year on or around my birthday, I host a celebration of all things gaming, from ancient traditional tabletops through the most elec of tronics. It is an incredibly fun time for everyone, and a great excuse to escape the miserable weather and come out to visit grand ol' cali during our best time of the year.

Last year was a roaring success, with almost 80 people coming! As a result, though, I've had to upsize our location to an actual rented facility outside of my apartment complex, and will be asking folks for a small donation of 10 bucks to help offset the costs.

As always, Talcon is scheduled for the first saturday in february, which this year is February 2nd, 2013. Folks who are interested can spillover till the 3rd and join me for my superbowl party as well =)

Come one, come all, and let's make this awesome!

Unhappy Combo breaker!

I don't see me being able to make it this year...

Especially if I don't have a job by February (oh, goddess the horror of that thought)

But, if I can I will. I'd really like to...

Last year was fun times, but this year seems unlikely. I'll keep the date in mind in case anything changes, though.

This is before things get really moving with work stuff, so I think I could be in! We might have some company coming into town around this time too, so that may throw a monkey wrench into the mix, but I'll keep you posted!

Having trouble deciding if I should drive or fly to this one. Who would be interested in carpooling from the LA/OC area?

Shivam, would you tell me I could not come if you knew my intent was to annoy some people in person? As well as enjoy the company of others, of course.

i wouldn't tell you to not come, but i would be really disappointed if you took it upon yourself to wreck other people's experiences, and my party by proxy.

I'm pretty much confirmed for this now (one last wedding I need to get the dates for before I can say for sure).

I might well be. Looks like I'll have a few days of vacation rollover that has to be used by the end of March, or it turns back into a pumpkin.

Also: in like Flynn.
