As you may or may not know we are fast approaching the deadline for submitting events to Origins 2012 this year. Last year's gathering was a success, and I would love to see more of us get together this year! If there is any chance at all you think you might be able to join us (and I realize that for some of you the trip would be expensive...) please choose option one so that I may measure interest rather than final numbers. I am leaving this poll up through the Holidays. the Origins Game Fair runs from May 30- June 3, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio... I am hoping Ares will choose to attend this year.

If you choose Option #1, then please leave a post with your name so that we can get an idea of where our group is perhaps coming in from this year.
Thanks,

The Cowman

Great news Cowman! Per our conversation from Willoughby"s game day put me down for the event. Let's get cooking on the plans.

I would love to come, but have to vote "unable". I have occasional trips across the Pond, but mostly to the East Coast and I've been spectacularly unable to get any of those to coincide with any of the big cons so far, let alone find an excuse to venture further inland :(

if wishes came true I'd be there but I think even family holidays are on hold next year.

I would also be there like a shot if I could, but money, other commitments, and suchlike preclude my participation I'm afraid Ken.

Sorry, it's a bit far - and worse, I have teaching commitments, even if I could afford the $7000 price tag.

Ken, put me down as IN. Sounds like another blast. Looking forward to it.

At this time, it appears unlikely that I will be able to attend.

My green tab says,"Zakopious will become famous soon enough."

Does this mean that I am already infamous ?

Hi Ken,

I'd love to go, but my wedding must take priority. My fiancee is the nicest most loving gal I ever met, and she would if she could, but too many planes have already been set to change things. I wouldn't want to be :smack: you know.

I'll try to remember you guys as I enjoy the wedding bliss. :D

Take care,
Frank.

I will not join you dear Friends, although I'd love to.
It's a question of time, a visa (yes!, bloody hell, but I don't think I wouldn't get it) and the money in some way. I will definitely fly to U.S.A. for a longer sightseeing in the future. Then I'll do my best to meet some of you:D

While I completely appreciate the sentiment... if you are able to remember us during your wedding bliss, then you are doing something wrong... ;)

Yup. My brother and I are planning to attend... count us "in". We plan on driving from Ottawa to Toronto and then south through Buffalo.
Anybody in Ontario need a ride?

I placed a no on there only because I think I am flying the family out that way later in the year for a wedding.....however if it is close to that weekend....Columbus is not a bad diversion. Just need to look at smaller airfields in that area.....

Outstanding Bruce! You need to get your brother signed up here on the forums!

The OSU airport at Don Scott Field would be a good choice... about 20 minutes from the con.


Now if I'm sponsored, I'll come over!

When I win the lottery later this year I am flying over all the "top pilots" from across the pond.

With all the work we did. I have to say it was the best week I had all year. Everyone was fantastic and I only missed my wife...a little.

Since this is the weekend after the holiday, I should be able to swing something, at least for the weekend.
Put me down.

I am a definite maybe. I wanted to discus with the mrs. what we were going to do with my vacation time this year as it is.
She is also a gamer and Origins veteran.

I really wish I could, but I seriously doubt I could swing it this year.

Just asked Hunter last week if he'd like to attend Origins 2012 and he said yes. So right now it looks like a good bet that Hunter and I will be there, unless something unforeseen comes up.

I would not miss it! Last year was great -- Origins 2011 was where I learned about the 'drome and was first introduced to this grand community.

I just got the all clear and will be coming. Bruce, send me a note to my gmail account and we'll see if we can sort out a ride!

I would love to but, will not be able to attend due to other obligations. :( My wife and I are building a home-based business! :)

I'll try to make it, still not sure yet. Was going to leave work at noon on the Friday, but more like Saturday after noon now. If I can, I will stop by and say hello and shake a few hands.

Looks like that direction was way too subtle...

Tim, you are sure to have a good time. Ares is sending us some nice prizes to give away... and if you like the WWII version, you might just walk away a happy pilot. The Con rules about selling things is pretty strict as they have businesses paying good money for the right to sell there. If I can work it out in time, I'd like to have a store there carry my stuff. If not, you could always place an order just before and I can deliver it no problems (dropping the S&H charges of course).
