WDC 5 - 7 October Washington DC

Postby Big Gun » 07 Sep 2018, 22:16

Greetings PlayDippers,

I'm about to book my flight from the UK and a hotel room for this event. I intend to arrive on Thursday 4th and leave on Monday 8th October.

Two questions:

1. Anyone interested in sharing a hotel room at the Washington Hilton in order to cut costs? The rooms have two queen beds. You need to know I'm old and I eat/drink a lot so at night I snore noisily. That said, I don't intend to sleep much. PM me if you're interested.

2. Who else from PlayDip is definitely going? I've corresponded with some players who, to my great disappointment, have now backed out. I'm interested to know who is really committed to this event? I would be delighted to meet you.

Cheers

I'll be there - but then I'm local.

I’ve got a list. Will post it when I’m at my computer again. There’s at least ten or so of us going, with another few on the fence.

I will definitely be there, and am excited to see how many playdippers we can get to show out!

I may be missing one or two, but I think that's the bulk of the list. I also think a couple have since decided against going, sadly.

WDC and DipCon originally started as a means for postal players to get to meet and hang out with one another; very cool to see this element coming full circle with all the online attendees this year. Less than a month to go!

P.S. - also www.carnagecon.com - PM me if you are considering attending, in case there is anything I can do to help move the needle

Highly recommend Carnage. I (probably/almost definitely/I’m holding out the slightest hope/but sadly I probably won’t) be able to go this year, but it’s an awesome tournament in an awesome venue in an awesome location.
