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

I will probably end up hitting Ohio once before SCon to get my shots ( easy in Ohio, not in the frontier of CR ). Eventually I feel you will need to have it to fly, and I like flying, so I am getting it when I can.
If we can have tables closer if we are all vaccinated, I am fine with that, but am not worried, To be honest I wondered if we where all vaccinated would we have to wear masks in the game room? I can see in the food area when the staff is there behind the lines, but I am guessing that is silly thinking?

I think we can have tables closer together, and more attendees, if all are vaccinated which is exactly what we were thinking, particularly given that we would like tables for other games (and @Deroche wants half the room for his little toy car game -- which looks very cool by the way.)
Not being required to wear masks while gaming would be a real bonus.

I'm in. This is going to be the Mecca of Heroscape in 2021! I can't wait and hope to see a ton of people there!

Don't cry because the tournament is over, smile because it happened

After a 3.5 hour Skype call with my crew, we've come to the realization that we need 24 hours to mull a few last specifics over. We plan to release events tomorrow.

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

I want to thank all of you in advance for the work you've put into this

Curious about the hotel....is a nicer place like a Hilton or Sheraton? or a dive like a Motel 6?

LOL

Closer to Hilton/Sheridan than Motel 6. Most hotels like Motel 6 do not have restaurants/ballrooms. I think everyone will be pleased with the hotel. The hotels we are waiting for quotes from are similar quality.

Somebody from that crew needs to take charge and be a decider.

Cool!

Hey my one piece of free advice in helping with a local Con for the past 12 years, you guys should spend the $99 and set up an LLC ASAP! I would also suggest that you set up a separate bank account and PayPal account

Can't wait for details!

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

I appreciate the advice. I thought about setting up an LLC. In Connecticut, it's $120 to the state (not a big deal) with an annual fee of $20, but then we need to get a tax ID number and file a tax return. 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.

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

Seems really awesome and a lot of stuff has gone into this. I noticed that there were variable room sizes (1 king or 2 queen). I was wondering what happens to pricing if a family group uses a room (for example 3 people). I know you guys were trying really hard to condense it down to a one ticket price and didn't want to ask a complicated question but that's probably one that matters to a few

So there are two different costs: the cost to book a room, and the cost for the badge.

You could split the room cost three-ways (barring COVID restrictions); you'll pay that to the hotel.

However, just like at GenCon, everyone has to buy their own badge (there's no splitting of that cost); you'll send that to us.

Hope that helps, and hope to see you out there!

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

Sorry if I wasn't clear on this -- hotel rooms are independent of badge price. You book your hotel room directly with the hotel which is a per room price for your family at $129 per night (I presume you would get two queens.) But let's say it's a couple coming, or just a single person, they might want a king bed.
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.)
