Vote in the New Poll: Going to Kublacon 2009 in Style with a Fancy Group Pass

Op-For owns every year at Kublacon, but this year, what do you say we own a little more?

I say we get ourselves a group pass: http://www.kublacon.com/Groupreg.html

Passes are just $30 each ($20 off door price, $10 off prereg price). We just need 10 people in. I will coordinate. Just vote in the poll and send me an email if you're in. I think it will have our club name in on our badges, too, so it's worth it just for that. Increase visibility.

I will let the Doomed Legion know, and you all could spread the word as well.

The deadline for the pass is 4/15, and I'd like to have everything sorted by early April, so let me know as ASAP.

In case you can't read the poll choices, they are:

I am IN for an Op-For group pass

I am IN but I already have my pass squared away

I want to go but can't commit

I'm staying home.

First off, I have never attended a kon. Secondly, sounds like a good time. If I were able to go to only one "local" kon, would this be the one? Are they family friendly, or is it best to leave them at home? What's your take?

There are activities for older kids, but it's a total geekfest, so unless your fam./wife are up for playing games and stuff I wouldn't recommend it. We could arrange Wife-Family CON 2009 though to take place the same weekend as Kublacon to keep the wives busy.

Hi Krycek.

Here's the Kublacon site:

Yeah, CB speaks truth, lots of sweaty geeks. I always see a number of families but I'm not sure how the kids and families. Here's a list of activities aimed at young gamers: http://www.kublacon.info/kcsearch/kcindex.lasso?page=hits&link_pref=12&subcat=yp&sort_pref=&order_pref=&action=search

As for your other question, yes, I'd say if you attend one con, this should be the one. If I'm not mistaken it's the largest west coast con, and it beats Dun Dra Con for the breadth of miniatures games.

If you're into tourneys, there's WFB, 40k and Warmachine/Hordes. These tend to be all day or even 2 day affairs. But there are a lot of other things going on all the time, and it can be equally fun to just to wonder the con and see how things play out. That was how Op-For rolled last year (no tourneys) and I think we all had a good time. Clark usually runs mammoth 40k games (have you seen the pics?) with upwards of 50 participants. And the painting contest is a big draw for me.

Ok, blogger cut my links off, but just go kublacon.info and look around.
