Archercon Updates!!!
« on: March 12, 2007, 07:15:12 AM »
Archercon is STILL a Go!!

  I have aquired two 3.5 x 6 foot tables from drill so we have the dining room table and these for fighting... all I need is enough terrain.  Josh has stated he's bringing stuff which is great.

  If anyone can bring city-fighting terrain, that would be great; having a throw down in such I find fun...

  Playstation games: I have Grand Turismo 4 for racing and the aforementiond NCAA 06 Football.

  Minis-wise besides UWZ and Chrono, if anyone wants a game of Battletech, I am up for that too and can field most any tech/weight class.

Major Details

Address:
1410 Hampden Blvd
Reading PA 19604

From Maplewood:  78 westbound to PA and look for 100 South.  100 South to 222 South and follow 222 South towards Reading.  Take 222 Business when it splits off (becomes 5th Street Highway) and take Rt 12/Warren Street Bypass EAST to Spring Valley Road South (two exits).  This becomes Hampden Blvd.  Look on right side after the ninth street you pass; the next street you see *should* be Amnity (street #10).

  The house is in between Amity and Pike with the number and roses on the door in Gold.

From Philadelphia-  Get to Pa Pike and head WEST.

I-76 to exit 298 (I-176/Morgantown).
I 176 North to 422 west.
422 West to Penn Street.
Penn to 5th Street and Make Left
5th Street to Spring Street (nine streets down 5th) Make Right
Follow Spring down into valley and back up again.  At the top of hill where it meets 13th, cross over and it becomes Hampden.  Follow Hampden up four blocks and the house is on the LEFT.


Or you can mapquest with the address above. :)

I am looking at a 11am start time but earlier arrivals are cool too.

  Snack and Beverage Contributions are Accepted and encouraged. :)

  Please bring Slippers!!  With a nice rug, all the traffic is gonna be brutal on it so I was asked to encourage slipper use.

Please respond with an affirmative if you are coming...

Bill and I are hopefully riding with Bryon.  'Better call him and make arrangments!!  I'll have three mats, lots of jungle terrain, some desert stuff.  You've seen most of what I have at Between Books.  Hopefully I'll grab some more between now and then.  Hehe.

I plan on bringin' my brushes and some paints.  That Leslie is a great painter and I'd be a fool not to learn or steal some of her technique.

I will tell her you said so.  Come early as she leaves about 2:30 or so to head down to Baltimore for the Vampire game she ST's for.

It looks like me and Steve have a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive, but I'm sure we can amuse ourselves. :)

P.S.  I'm staying over so I am not rolling early with the terrain.  Please bring lots anyway, whoever can.

The wife says it's a go - just need a sitter.
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!
