GenCon 2021? 3 months 3 weeks ago #1

TPTB, Please feel free to delete or move this thread.

I am making plans to attend GC in 2021, if it happens. that being said, here are some of my ideas.

- get MasterEd a vanilla based shake from SnS. ( I have not forgotten). :whistle:
- be very careful.
- see if I can get some folks together to try some twisted poker... still working it out.
- shooting for my normal runs around 2pm fri and 2pm sat. thinking of doing mad runs like 2017. so keep a dumb barbarian in mind when planning. :)

Got my first vaccine dose this pm. If GC 2021 happens, I'm there.

I plan on attending come hell or high water. Actually, hell or high water sounds a bit easier than this year. My group will be making it's decisions starting in January. For me, it will be a week in Indy as I plan on volunteering for True Dungeon set up as we had planned to do for this year. I look forward to meeting some new players in person and hope to play True Grind which I have yet to do. I will be living my con life to the fullest in the future. We take to much for granted and time seems way to short.

Jeff, I've also made plans to attend and hope it happens. Hopefully the vaccine is effective enough and administered quickly enough that it can happen. Perhaps I'll make a hotel reservation for Origins as a back-up option just in case. :)

If GenCon happens this year and international travel is possible, I plan on being there. Most of my days and evenings are likely to be taken up working in the exhibit and events halls though, so my usual plan is to cram as many runs into Thursday/Saturday evening as I can.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

I’ll wait and see what happens, but I’m leaning toward full time volunteer this year if I go at all.

If I have both doses of the vaccine in time I will be there. Gencon is pretty much just True Dungeon for me these days. Between volunteering and runs, I’m pretty much just down there in Lucas Oil. So my exposure to people who don’t wash their hands or sneeze/cough into their elbows is limited.

Stage 1, hope the border is open. Stage 2 hope gencon can find insurance, stage 3 hope vaccines aare available in my country and to my demographic. All in all, its probably still not looking good for Canada, so stage 4 hope I dont miss xp. But I'd go if the option were available.

If any of your GenCon plans would include non refundable things (like airline tickets) I would hold off on those purchased until GenCon officially announces that it will happen in person.

If you can secure things that can be canceled the week before go for it. But don't pur yourself on the line financially for 2021 gencon. There's too many factors that are unknown today.

This.

It took me several months to finally get all of my refunds this year, and I was at no point confident that I'd be able to get as much money back as I did. I usually like to book things early to save money, but next year I'm not booking anything until it's very clear that things are going ahead.
