I'm thinking a hostage standoff would buy us time if it happened around 6am when they want us out. The only issues is I don't know the SOP for when negations being when they cut the power off.


I think if we just stayed in there gaming and if anyone tried to walk in we all just yelled and threw items at them until they ran out, they would eventually get the picture :P Until one of them wised up and killed the power. But then you'd have like 100 angry gamers like a swarm of bees after them.

jk :evil:


*Edit*
How about we challenge them to a dodgeball match for the building on Sunday 100 Gamers vs who ever they are :P May the best team win.

Well since this is my first Lan Oc I will be sure to have fun trying to find the place none the less.

Ok so I need a bottle of nitro, a stick of Dynamite, a roll of duct tape and ... Oh yeah! a squirrel

Don't know if he has a Stetson, though...

Sorry to hear about the current situation. I like others here are willing to take the LAN any way it turns out and don't think LAN OH should wipe out their funds to make this a two day event. One long day would suffice if we have to. You folks always do a great job and I will be happy with whatever you decide. B)

Bushwacker has LanOhio on the brain, I think he meant to say LanOC. I agree with him and the general consensus. I would be willing to kick in a little more cash to make this thing go off.

If he said LAN OHIO, Id agree but he just did LAN OH instead of LAN OC so I think just a 1 letter typo. Which reminds me, when is LAN Ohio going to have their next event? Not looking forward to a 4 hour drive but would like to go to one.

I just had a couple of thoughts. I haven't thought them all through but just thinking out loud here.

First if you need to make up some funds you can always buy some ticket rolls and do a 50/50. Some people are even nice enough to donate back the winnings (or a portion) if they win.

Secondly of All, I know alot of these community building and stuff just write you in on a book, but I'm starting to think a contract is more the proper manner. Just saying that they are securing a location for you and if they back out, they are financially responsible for terminating their end of the deal. Besides of course extreme things that are out of their hands, like the building burned down or the power is out because of lightning or something like that. I mean they probably ask you for a deposit the least you could do is ask them to sign a commitment form.

And thirdly please forgive me because I don't know all the details and may be out of line but If who every is booked for Sunday trumps your year and a half reservation shouldn't the board or owners of the facility compensate you for your extra expense? I would think it would be the proper thing to do but again maybe that is extreme.

Good points. I was thinking a 50/50 raffle to but they may have to do a 75/25 raffle and winner gets 25 percent. If I won, I'd pocket it. Just saying. Good idea with the contract but I think with the fact that they always fill up and have to turn people away and now this shit, that a new venue is a must. But it wouldnt hurt to have something signed for the next place.
