KeyCon 2015 Official Sign Up
« on: Mon, 12 January 2015, 11:05:20 »
I am trying to finalize a venue, but its hard to do that without a count.

May 16th will be the date - and the con will be open all day.

Skokie Double Tree Hotel

Skokie, Illinois, 60077-1314, USA
TEL: +1-847-679-7000

Lunch Option in Hotel - http://doubletree3.hilton.com/resources/media/dt/CHICCDT/en_US/pdf/skokie_lunch.pdf

Hours 10:00AM - 6:00PM


Schedule

10:00 -11:00 - Setup - Claim a table if you have stuff - help others if you don't - get projector/livestream set up / meet and greet
11:00 -12:00 - Socialize check out other peoples stuff
12:00 -1:00 - Lunch - The hotel has a very decent steakhouse restaurant that would be the easiest option.  If people want to go out or order in food great.

Hah, too many Keycons. I think there should only be ONE event titled Keycon per year. It could rotate between locations, but all others should simply be called meetups.

I was advocating for this, since I created the first KeyCon as a yearly meetup.  When Keycon West happened we thought that maybe 2 a year might be good to allow for our West Coast clackers to get in on the fun....

As far as I see it KeyCon and KeyCon West are the only Real KeyCons, and the rest are Meetups, but I don't want to go raining on someone else's parade who whats to rally the keyboard troops.

I want to go to the REAL KeyCon 2015 in Chicago, IL.  Put me down as an attendee. 

As for venue, anyplace in Chicago is okay with me, but can we have an event at iMav's house up the road in Wisconsin?  Maybe a Sunday brunch for the out-of-towners?  I'm ready for some of those famous homemade iMav pancakes.  yum-my.  oh yeah, since this is supposed to be a celebration, so can you ask iMav to pick up a few bottles of French Champers, 'cuz I likes to get a little toasted at brunch, nothing fancy, but at least get one bottle of Brut rose, and a blanc de noirs, would be nice.  Blanc de blancs or plain Brut, w/e.  But no demi-sec.  And no Cava, please.

I especially like this one for brunch:

Put me down. eth0s idea is a good one but if we want a closer place to do brunch my house is about 30min north of Chicago and will probably be open.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

I think there will likely be a lot of unofficial event's meals and activities, and if anyone wants to take the reigns on planning some of that by all means.

As far as I am concerned the Con will be one full day and either in the downtown, or near downtown area.

I will be attending KeyCon 2015.  I will be driving down from Eastern WI (GB area), so anyone on the way is welcome to share a ride if you'd like.  I will have ≥1 open spot.

My house could be used as a gathering place for the northerners.

I might take you up on this.  Only 30 minutes north?  My other option is Racine, which isn't much further, so if others need to stay with you for legitimate reasons I don't want to take those spots.

Yeah I'm about 30min north, roughly 20mi depending on where in Chicago this happens. 1-2 people is about the max I could have over (if people need a place to crash) unless someone wants to sleep on a couch. If people want to carpool down there is plenty of parking by my house and enough room to gather. I'll figure out more details as this gets closer, anyone who expresses interest I'll add to a list then pm when the date approaches.

Oh, I forgot that this might be multiple days.  I'd rather not drive all the way back to Racine every day, so depending on how the schedule plays out I might want somewhere closer to crash.  But again, my situation isn't as bad as some, so I don't mean to displace anyone.

I understand the need / desire to put yourself down as a maybe.  The event is a ways out and there are always uncertainties in life.

It is going to be challenging to choose a venue if I have 10 yeses and 30 maybes.

If you did or are planning on signing up as maybe, please do your best to solidify that to a yes or a no ASAP.

Thanks!

And I've requested that he allocate some time either before or after Keycon for arcades, food, and ice cream.

Do you see the problem here?  You will need a passport for this "music trip".  So there actually is no problem with going to Keycon.

As for the car thing...ask Halverson to pick you up on the way.  :))

I am impressed she found this thread before I did.

Your slipping.

She also gets up an hour before me, unless I am working, then I am up and out of the house inside 20 minutes so I don't have time to get on the computer before heading to work.

Unfortunately, that is the only weekend I actually have booked for something else during that general time of year.

unfortunately, given that we've lost our venue and have to replan around that, i think we really need to keep this weekend nailed down. the priority until then is going to be finding a venue. my feeling is that we should plan for appx the same turnout next year + 5-10 people more at max.

one advantage that we have is no need or the venue to be particularly scenic, and geographically we can go outside the city if we need to.

to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

If we still need a venue or date flexibility, my cousin works at IIT at the campus in Chicago. I can see if they have something we can reserve.

I'm in.  Speaking for myself ofcourse I am willing to attend another weekend if it means iMav can show.

If Galloping Ghosts is in the works let me know what you guys play so I can practice.  As I'm getting older my reflexes are not as good as they once were.

Just remember there are plenty of meeting spaces in any metropolitan area that can be rented for a fee.  It's just nice to have one that is free with audio/visual.
Wish I had some gif or quote for this space, but I got nothing
