Sorry did a copy/paste and modify from my Toronto one.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Now since I,m in Eastern canada, who would like to be "in charge" from the Seattle one?

Being 18, I can't exactly say I'm capable of any real level of organization or funding, but I'd be happy to help coordinate.
First, we should get a head count of who lives in the area and would be interested in attending, from this pool we can determine who will be most capable of organization
The leader man will then need to find out the best location that will be capable of holding the event and supporting the people who will be coming.

True I can take care of modifying the list of who will attend and who might be attending, but i will need someone closer to "rent" space at a LGS, maybe help with the room and board and i,ll let you guy decides how many point, if other GW game will be allowed etc.

I'd definitely go. I'm only 3 hours north of Seattle.

I potentially can join, depending on work and if I am on assignment.

Threadomancy! Yeah! Sorry for not saying it before but I'm a yes. I have no plans for August ;D. I'll try my best to help for logistics but if there's someone over 19 who is in the area it'd be lovely if they'd step up. Doesn't appear that there is though...

I think the problem with this is that most people have school during Oct-Nov. I know I won't have enough time due to courses, and I'm guessing others won't either. If you really wanna make it to one of these meetups I bet we can organize another, but I hope that explains why we have it in August this time...
[hr]

As for location, there's the Seattle "Battle Bunker" (ironic because it's in Bellevue :P) for GW at this address:
3540 128th Avenue Southeast, Suite D
Bellevue WA
98006

There's a small-ish GW owned shop at
10031 Holman Rd Northwest, Suite B
Seattle WA
98177

This one's okay, but like I said, it's small (smaller than our LGS), there's only 2-3 (or possibly 4) tables. I went there recently and bought a few models. Seems nice enough, I don't know when their peak traffic is, so things could get hairy if we hit it during rush hour. Worst case scenario we could carpool/hop on a bus and go to another one :P

Independent retailer-wise there's a gaming club out by the Northgate Mall but I haven't scoped that one out yet either.
[hr][hr]
Dates-wise I think it'd be fair if the people who have to travel furthest give some input. That'd probably be you Lelith (based on comments so far), I know PNW, Odo, and I are all only about an hour away max and Odo and I might even be in Seattle in August... FYI the GW shops are closed on Monday and Tuesday for some reason. Ah, PNW, you're gonna have to tell us when/if you're working certain days...
[hr][hr]

If people need a place to crash I don't really know... There are a lot of hotels/motels around. It's not like any of us (that I know anyway) own a house or have an apartment that people can stay in. This "event" looks like it'll be small, so it might be a do your own room/board thing.

If you're really strapped for cash, well, it is August, camping may not be completely out of the question :P. A hotel/motel for a few days might be cheaper than the gas driving to and from wherever we're meeting in Seattle if you're far away... if travel/lodging costs are not prohibitively high and yet are the reason you can't attend we might be able to come up with a solution.

I'm not sure about "renting" a space. I'm a Freshman in college with no job, so I don't exactly have the resources to fund this. The others in the area that I know are in about the same position. I'd be willing pitch in to a reasonable extent (I define reasonable, and it would probably be a small amount ), but I'm in no position to provide room and board for people, let alone renting out a gaming club. I can talk to owners and see if they're cool with us being there at a specific date, but yeah...
