    I think we'll see more donations early next year as tax return season sets in. I know i'm going to donate a chunk.

    Reminder for myself: Matt and I were discussing a donation once the Christmas period is over. Need to pick this up in January and go from there.

    Seeing as we're primarily a Final Fantasy site has anyone considered emailed square enix?

    As a 30% shareholder of this event, I demand more consistent updates.

    We're just now getting into the serious planning, boss! Currently trying to locate a venue to host a bunch of nerds.

    Here is our list of things to do, sortof in order of importance:

    • Finalize a head count
    • Locate a venue
    • Determine cost of food
    • Organize a budget
    • Collect buy-ins for meals
    • Locate accommodations for traveling members
    • Organize the Ciddies
    • Music
    • BOOZE?!?!
    • Figure out if we can do any theme/decor/fun stuff


    If anyone would like to help with organizing, please message a mod to join the Garden Festival Committee! We need all the help we can get.

    Well, according to the links above, your budget is $38. As an 'accounting person', allow me to plan the event for you.

    • Finalize a head count - All you losers (free)
    • Locate a venue - Any city park (free)
    • Determine cost of food - Just go to local mexican restaurant and load up on the free salsa bar (free)
    • Organize a budget - Total budget = $38
    • Collect buy-ins for meals - This is not a thing (free)
    • Locate accommodations for traveling members - Psychotic's house (free)
    • Organize the Ciddies - Just get BoB to do it (free)
    • Music - Pandora app on your cell phone (free)
    • BOOZE?!?! - 30 pack of PBR ($20) and a box of red wine ($17)
    • Figure out if we can do any theme/decor/fun stuff - You can't (free)


    Just send me the extra dollar as my fee.

    People should figure out their own accodomations once the location of the event is confirmed.

    They will; but we want to provide some options where we might be able to get a block of rooms together for perhaps a decent rate, or even to just be near everyone to hang out.

    Some people have sent Daniel money directly for this event through PayPal, including a very generous $1k sum from an enthusiastic member! What do you have to say to that

    Aye aye! I'll get to donating soon, don't worry. If Mr. Carnelian is still around and kicking on here (he probably will be) I'm sure he'd be delighted to come along as well!
