MegaCON or MERCon

This was talked about a little bit in the GenCon forum, but I wanted to start a fresh thread.  There have been a couple location suggestions.  Need to get an idea of interest in a Wednesday night event before GenCon along with getting suggestions.

Looking for a place to:
-Play MERCS, Myth, and Conflict
-Grab Dinner
-Possibly hold some contests of some kind
-Mix and Mingle
-Possibly get a guest appearance (definitely no guarantees here, as booths are being set up in the convention hall on Wednesday!)

This is the information I received from Derek with Gen Con Programming

Well, if we’re talking something on the scale of a table or two, we can accommodate that on Wednesday, provided it is clearly a fan-run enterprise and not an official promotional event for the company. This Wednesday space wouldn’t be somewhere you could get food, either.

If you want to do something like have a couple MERCS events listed on Wednesday and have a table or two for people to meet up early on Wednesday, and then you’ll all go out to get dinner somewhere - giving out a couple prizes and maybe meeting up with some of the creators or something in a pretty informal format, that’s something we could pretty easily accommodate.

If you definitely want to set up camp and stay put all day and get food, put up advertisements, or really make it a company promotion/demo thing, then that’s not something we currently allow on Wednesday. If that’s the case, I would recommend contacting The RAM or Scotty’s Brewhouse to ask about space - and I think it looks like you’ve already started to talking to KFG, based on the forum thread. They can definitely help roll you into what they’re doing.

Let me know what you have in mind.

Wonder if something like this might make more sense this year, so resurrecting this.
