Super ARG Fest-O-Con 3 : The Attack on Vancouver, July 2004

We're going to invade the Great White North when it's not so white.

Start saving your pennies now. Rumor has it that there is no acceptable excuse to miss it and kidnapping is not out of the question.


The current facts:

Who: Anyone & Everyone
What: General mayhem
When: July 2004, probably the weekend of the 16-18
Where: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Why: Because.


The current ideas:

- One main hotel for everyone to stay at the medium budget level. Hopefully with nearby hotels to fit the wishes of others as far as budget and comfort levels are concerned. Hopefully we'll be able to get some sort of group rate to make the mid-level a budget-level.

- A whole mess of little radios w/a 2-3 mile radius to help make coordinating plans and such easier.

- T-shirts or some other swag



So, post away. State your wishes and desires. If you live in Vancouver, we'd love to hear from you on great places to stay, things to do, etc etc.

Ok, we've got a tentative timeframe for Fest III: July 16-18 official, 15-21 unofficial (just like Orlando, main festivities on the weekend, with a decent buffer on either end). For things to do while there, suggestions mentioned are: 1) day trip to Victoria on Vancouver Island, nature hikes, Playdium, boating or just plain touristing. There will probably also be a few, if not several, puzzles set up for the meet, at least one probably involving a scavenger hunt. I'm working on a package that'll list possible hotels, restaurant options, touristy things (museums, parks, landmarks, etc), bars and random options. Several of us are thinking of 2-way radios to keep in contact, as we had several incidents of cell signal loss, resulting in minor inconveniences. Post any thoughts, suggestions, rants, raves or other, and let's get this thing started Cool

Some touristy things to do while in Vancouver; Stanley Park Aquarium, Grouse Mountain, and Capalino Suspension Bridge.

The ferry trip to Victoria(Vancouver Island) is about a 3 hour trip, but once there you should go to Buchard Gardens, during the summer months it is beautiful.

FYI, If that date coincides with the Canada Cup Softball Tourn. The USA Olympic Team usually plays at Softball City about 25 miles south of Vancouver.

YES I am very very very aware of that Magesteff....I am talking about peeps checking their messages from those who do not have cell phones. I am pointing out a difficulty OK?
when you are using a calling card you have to dial 34 numbers to get in touch with one person if you are dialing several peeps in a day the numbers add up. If you mess up one number in that sequence you have to start all over again...just something to think about if you dont have a cell phone

Moral of the story: Cell Phones, don't travel to ARGFest without one?

I endorse this wholeheardtly....but they still do no good if you dont check your messages, which it is even better still to have walkie talkie phones or better still we will just use the power of our minds and communicate with a mind meld Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
