Fall OctoCon???

Post by hentzau »

Hey folks...just throwing this out there to see what the interest would be in a Fall OctoCon, either on October 29-30 or November 5-6. If we do this, everyone would have to remain masked during the duration, and I'm not sure what the deal with food and drink would be. I haven't even contacted the church to see if they would let me hold something like this, but I will check with them. Just wanted to see what folks thought, because there has been some interest in me setting this up.

Chime in and let me know what you think.

I'm interested, but not sure if I can make it.
Based on the few posts in the thread before you opened this one, I'd much prefer no mask if that's possible.

I've rescheduled my wedding anniversary to make OctoCon. I'll be there with a mask if there's any way possible.

But November would work better.

I guess I'm hesitant, since I saw this post a few days ago and I'm not sure if I would go or not.
The main hang up for me is my unvaccinated kid.

Do Halloween masks count? If so, then the first date.

I'm not a full-day candidate, but my wife would be up for a shopping trip to nearby Seafood City. My kids might like some of the easier games, like those Kristi and Steve sometimes bring.

So looking at my life right now, work schedules, scouts, etc, as well as the restrictions by the church (like masks on all the time, no food or drink) I'm going to have to punt on the fall Octocon again. Let's keep our fingers crossed that things look better in the spring.

Thanks, hentzau. We’ll have to get some local games going soon after hepcat gets back from Origins.

I couldn't find the other appropriate threads and this was the latest one, so I figured I'd ask here.

What's the plans for the next event? Never been and I'm really needing to plan some kind of trip to keep my sanity. Other than some trips to get groceries and what not, I've been at home since coming home from the hospital in January.

Anything in the works?

At this point, we’ll have to hope for the spring, March/April timeframe. Hopefully Covid restrictions would be eased by then.
