That place sounds AWESOME. I'll be in Torrence Ontario at the time, but I am sure that I'll be able to take a couple of days off Summer-camp to head down easy-peasy. Yeah Bus from Gravenhurst->Toronto!

How many tables/size of the tables does that place have? Renting it out sounds sweet, unlike the toronto battle bunker (which is an awesome place to game) which I am unsure how easy it would be to rent it out. Put me down for attending. Should we maybe run a fun little tournament or something amongst ourselves? I think that'd be a good way of organizing the actual playing of games. We should decide on points too. But thats ways away, so we don't need to worry about that yet.

Drinks and snacks are twenty five cents, they used to be free, but there were assholes who abused it. if you are low on money, or only have a credit card, the guy will usually lend you a quarter, sometimes even if you aren't buying anything!

I wouldn't mind buying everyone a pop at that price, so it really isn't too much of a hassle.
Sounds good, though depending on the game size, we might need bigger then 4x4 tables. Is it possible to push them together? Two 8x4 and one 6x4 could work well. Sorry that I am being picky, I just really don't like playing on small tables, I like tables that give me plenty of 'elbow room' so to speak. Or more room to run away..I mean tactically retreat

I'll be along, and I'll bring my stuff, but it's not much more than 1500 points of Tau at best, and most of its not even painted.

I'll probably just be there for conversation and stuff, I guess.

Unless somebody wants to play 500 points or something. I may be able to get a fully-painted force that size... XD

4 tables sounds nice and should be sufficient for our need.

I've edited the title a bit, to make sure Everyone knows that They are Welcome...not just people in Toronto.
