Dallas Meet - March 2018

CooperCooper IowaPosts: 4,098Member @@ - Legendary Achaean
Hi everyone!

There were some of us chatting on the Achaean Discord and we got to talking about planning another Achaean meet! Previous larger ones have been in DC, NYC, there was one in Vegas, and probably more.

There was a lot of support for Dallas, so we're going to try to put something together here. Lots of moving parts and commitments, so nothing is set in stone yet.

Here are the dates we're thinking, and it will pretty much be whichever one gets the most people here:

March 2-4th
March 9-11th
March 16-18th
March 23-25th

These are Friday/Saturday/Sunday weekends.

Accomodations will depend on how many people we get to come and their comfort level. There are a ton of Airbnb places that are for groups of people, and there are enough of these that it will be easy to get everyone into one central place to make transportation easy.

Restaurants and bars are plentiful. Any type of food from across the world can be had in an authentic fashion. Food is on the pricey side here, so don't expect to pay less than $10 per meal.

Transportation - not 100% sure on this yet, but I would probably rent a large van for the weekend to haul people around in. Atalkez has also volunteered to help get people from one place to another.

Here are some of the things we could do as a group - not an all inclusive list, but I've confirmed that all of these will be open on those weekends (pending weather). The prices for some are general prices because it might vary depending on length of time or what we do, or how many people go. I estimated on the higher end rather than the lower end, and also tried to account for tax.

Dallas Aquarium - $23

Six Flags - ~$75

Top Golf - $25-45 per hour per bay (each bay can have 6 people)
This is fun even if you are not great at golfing!

Ripley's Believe It or Not! - $25-40 depending on how many attractions

Fort Worth Zoo - $15 (might go up in spring)

Ultimate Escape Game - $30
There are several more escape room places around, this is about the average price. Might be group rates available if we can commmit to a full room.

Go Ape Treetop Zipline Adventure - $60

Laser Tag - $25 per person for 2 hours, ish.
Lots of these places around with various ammenities.

Medieval Times - $70 (group rates available, just need more info for this)
Jousting, sword fighting, dinner!

If you have any ideas for other things, feel free to mention them! Once we get some momentum and rough head counts we can start planning activities and getting a loose schedule worked out.

EVERYONE is welcome regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, or who you are in game. Absolutely no bullying or harassment will be tolerated. For the young ones, you'll need parental supervision of some sort!

Feel free to tag anyone that might be interested or lives in the area!

    The aquarium has the most beautiful black jaguar I have ever seen, and if youre lucky it gets playful and will interact with people outside the enclosure.
    Huh. Neat.

    Depends, will @Cooper's cat be there? I'm on a mission to pat it for Jozlyn.

    I would be down for a meet! My wife and I live in Austin, so getting to Dallas for a weekend would be easy. @Cooper let me know if you need help planning anything, I may also have a vehicle to ferret folks around, I would likely just drive down.

    Awesome! I'll keep that in mind.

    So far we have 100% confirmed:

    Cooper, Atalkez, Laniara, and Aralaya.

    A handful of tentative people too.

    I can give absolutely no promises since Dallas isn't precisely close, but I'm going to keep an eye on this thread and consider some possibilities.

    Same here. I have family in Dallas too. So I might make a mini vacation out of it. Though I may have to bring the little one if thats okay.

    I'm tentative for sure. I have to visit Buffalo in the spring  :/ but will see if the dates work.

    You can add me onto the tentative pile. I'd love to do a meet, and I live in Houston which is only a few hours away. My issue is getting there. If it happens to be on a weekend I can gain transport from my folks that'd be cool. Otherwise, I'd be willing to discuss paying gas fare to ride along with someone else heading that way.

    I’m in the area, so should be able to make it to this. 16th-18th would be easiest for me personally, though any of the dates would be fine.
  • AralayaAralaya Posts: 550Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    Oh yeah, I should probably mention dates. 16-18 is the best for me too, since with the others I'll be MIA on the friday but the weekends would be fine.

    Aralaya, Atalkez, Cooper, Khairt, Laniara, and Peak is the current list of "I'm coming for sure"!

    Anze, Asani, Corina, Kondar&Wife, Shayde, and Tecton are the tentative list.

    Lots more watching the thread or just haven't seen it yet, let others know that are in the area!

    decide on dates and lemme know. No dates are better than any others for me, the nature of my job kinda sees to that, but the sooner finalized the better so i can pencil in time off and make sure my crew is prepped to get on without me.

    I'm definitely going, too, @Cooper . Daeki's on the tentative list, though.

    Please add me to that tentative list. Gotta wait for my schedule for that time to come out so I can see how busy I'll be before fully committing.

    Tell Joe Black you'll teach him the joys of life & love, in exchange for not killing anyone on the possible meet weekends.
