Re: Announcing ScapeCon: July 29th-August 1st

It doesn't look like I'm in. I mistakenly thought this was the previous date for GenCon, which I have off but nothing to do. I have to pick all my vacation time in December for the previous year.

This is a very cool idea, not just for this year, but as an annual event. I know it's kind of spur of the moment right now, but future planning will make attendance even better. I'm definitely interested for future years.

Have fun and stay busy - Luke 19:13

Sorry to hear that- you'll be missed! Hopefully we'll see you next year in Indy (be it for GenCon or ScapeCon)!

That's too bad, we lost some other guys as well because of the switch in weekends. Hotel rooms would be $100 a night more because of the firefighters' convention which moved to the original GenCon weekend.

You'll buy your badge from us, which is a per person charge and includes everything we detailed. So, if there were 3 of you, and if we could get 40 attendees your badges would total $870 ($290 x 3.)
Thanks! The text breakdown approximation is helpful

Until recently every LLC had to pay a minimum tax of $250 even if you didn't make any money or even if you lost money. Although that fee is now gone (which is a miracle in and of itself in that the State of CT never reduces taxes) it could come back at any time (particularly once the feds stop giving the states COVID money and people decide it's safe to move back to NYC thereby taking their high incomes that we tax heavily with them.) The bank I use charges $20 a month for a business account unless you keep at least $1,000 in the account at all times. Major PIA. If this is successful and becomes an annual event, then maybe we set up the LLC and build the charges in.
Damn what a mess. I have 4 separate LLCs in 4 different States that I do work in. Trust me it makes my quarterly taxes so much easier. Those Ct rules SUCK!

As far as a bank goes I went with Credit Unions. They did not require the insane $15 minimum balances that say Chase wanted

And I can help with that too, if we're able to do an event on the 3rd when I'm in town (or earlier that week too)...also, if it's the morning of the 3rd then it's more likely we could still get a good showing right? something like 10am - 3pm?

Re: Announcing ScapeCon: July 29th-August 1st

happy and said to say, Take me off the list of going - I got a job offer for July, and only having worked 2 days as a guide this last year, I need to take it.

Teacher Matt and Mike Flak will also not be attending

Very sorry to cancel, but I need the work. Enjoy it, besides I was a little lost, all the food and snacks are covered so is there any need for me to give out food between matches - I don't know, and now I will not find out.

GenCon - a must for any true Scaper!
