I am inviting anyone who is able to arrive any time after noon on Friday, April 24, 2009.  I will be available on Friday to pick up anyone from the airport or from the train station.  Further, to ensure that all are able to get in as much gaming as they wish, I will be taking Monday as a day off from work, too.  That way, anyone who needs transport to their travel connections will have it available on Monday, too.  I have a Saturn Vue (small Sport Utility Vehicle), so there is room for a decent amount of stuff.

If any information is needed, please, ask me.  I am familiar with all the public transportation in the area, and I do not want anyone to have to spend money on taxis or additional trains once they arrive in Philadelphia.

There are plenty of establishments that will deliver food up until midnight or 1:00 a.m., and I will try to have enough snack-type food and sodas and such, including diet and caffeine-free stuff.  For those that have never had a true Philadelphia cheesesteak, you are in for a treat, as I live within a mile of one of the best damned places to get one.  Further, the oft-mentioned "Death Fries" are but a phone call away! (I am going to put my culinary skills to the test to attempt to copy the recipe, thereby saving us all a lot of money ;))

As stated earlier, if there is anything else you need to know, or want to ask, please, ask.
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!

Hal we both know it goes the other way too.  It can't rain all the time, and you will have some good times coming your way.

I'll see you there, and I just emailed masherking.  With any luck, those North Jersey boys will make it down here.

Cheers.

You are on my list Archer. Going to try to get as many games in as humanly possible.

I think I owe Slater a chance to regain his honour after the beating I gave him last time. :)
