The third annual WGGCon starts Friday, September 2! Weâ€™re expecting a fantastic turnout all weekend long, so please RSVP on Facebook or Meetup (or both).
Weâ€™re once again at Croton Point Park, 1A Croton Point Ave., Croton-on-Hudson, New York.
Weâ€™re in cabin #1 again, which is the first cabin on the right as you enter the cabin area. CPP typically charges for parking, but please tell the front gate youâ€™re with cabin #1, so they (hopefully) wonâ€™t charge you.
We start at Friday 1:00pm and run around the clock until Monday morning. We have to cleanup and be out of the cabin by 11:00am on Monday, so there probably wonâ€™t be much activity on Monday, but we can game as late as we want on Sunday.
Elliot and Alec will be at the cabin the entire time (minus a couple trips home for showers), so please keep our cell phone numbers in case you need to reach us:
Texting and email work as well of course.
Our main focus is on board and card games, but youâ€™re welcome to play any game that other players are interested in joining. Please share which games youâ€™re bringing on this Facebook topicÂ and also share here for any event ideas.
We will have a BBQ on Saturday evening. We will also be providing soda/water and snacks during the entire con but feel free to bring anything you donâ€™t mind sharing. For other meals, we can always order pizza or send someone to a sandwich shop nearby.
We’ll be projecting movies on a big screen after dark each evening again this year. Popcorn and other snacks will be provided.Â PleaseÂ share your movie suggestions.
Youâ€™re also welcome to bring your families even if theyâ€™re not gamers. Both Elliotâ€™s & my kids will be there all weekend to enjoy the park.
Z-Man Games (Zev) will be onsite on Saturday. If you pre-ordered a game and canâ€™t attend on Saturday, please let me know, and Iâ€™ll hold your order for you.
For those who pre-ordered WGGCon t-shirts, Elliot and Tanya will have those all weekend. (All sizes are $16 except for 2XL $18.)
WGGCon is paid for with donations. The cabin costs $270 and food, snacks & drinks are a few hundred more. Our suggested donation is $5-10 per person per day plus $5-10 for those who join the Saturday BBQ. We don’t have a firm amount, because we’d like people to base their donation on how long they spend with us and how much food/snacks/drinks they consume. If you’re only stopping in one day for a couple hours, feel free to pay $5. If you’re with us around the clock and eat voraciously, then please adjust your donation accordingly. We’re just a bunch of friends getting together for gaming, so we don’t want to worry about money. Hopefully we break even again like we did last year. (Thanks to all those who contributed!)
Besides any snacks or food items you wish to bring, the other way you can help out is by bringing folding chairs or tables.Â Thereâ€™s plenty of picnic tables outside, but we need to augment the furniture in the cabin.
As a thank you for those who donate, Elliot, Alec & John Velonis have contributed some great games for a raffle. We’re not selling tickets, but you get a free ticket for every $5 you donate for food and the venue as per above. The games are brand new and in shrink wrap. We’ll draw names Sunday night; you don’t have to be present to win.
Thanks and see you at WGGCon soon!
