Frankenparty the Third Pre-Con Party and Gaming and Such Date: Wednesday 02 March 2-16, Afternoon/Evening When: 3 pm until late (9p? Mid? Who knows?) At: Frank Mentzer's house Where: Sharon WI, 24 miles away SIGN UP: Please see below; let me know you're coming. Back during the Troll Lord days (Lake Geneva Game Conventions), Gary & Gail hosted a wonderful open house in Lake Geneva. This is an attempt to continue that tradition, still in Walworth County but a little further out. In June 2013 we moved into our new/final house, and the work is almost done. Now the outside is (mostly) red, and there's a new (usable!) front porch, both since last year's Frankenparty. As always, we'll be socializing and playing boardgames, cardgames, roleplaying, guitars, and whatever.... Feel free to bring favorite games. Expect to be occasionally photographed. Families & kids welcome. We have two small, friendly dogs (lovers not fighters) and a caged parrot who eats fingers & pencils. FOOD & BEV: We'll have snacks, various non-alcoholic beverages (diet & sugared), and dinner. Also featuring Debbie's amazing baked goods. Donations encouraged; please consider $5 for all that. We 'broke even' the last two years straight, visitors have been great and donations covered the tab. Thanks much! ALCOHOL: We will not be serving alcohol, not even beer, so BYO. The local convenience store DOES carry a variety of good local beers, including New Glarus and Point. Please don't distribute (legal issues), and don't give it to underagers. TOBACCO USE will be confined to outdoors (back deck and front porch), and we'll air out the place before the party. ;> DRUGS are strongly discouraged. Get real, and/or don't do them here. COORDINATION (rides times etc): Unlike previous years, this time I must leave that to you. (My schedule got overloaded and I'm traveling for half of February!) So just come when you can, leave when you must, and try to give a friend a ride. But please DO post here with a name, how many, and roughly when, just for my last-minute panic stretch. PARKING: On the lawns, like the first year. Please enter by the driveway and either turn right (front or side lawn) or keep going to the back (side yard & orchard area). ATTACHMENT: Hey, I can attach a file! Please download this PDF for general guidelines, maps to guide your journey, and all other information you'll need. (Ignore the traps indicated, those were found by the last group, TPK, very sad.) IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND, PLEASE POST HERE before March 1st.
