#1 - 2014-06-13 15:30:38 UTC  |  Edited by: DomanarK
High Drag Podcaster RandomMcNally, Podside's FrFrmpukin and CluelessSpaceNerds podcast are hosting a meet up for all players of EvE online, with help from NinjaTurtle of Declarations of War Podcast.

This meetup will be held in Des Monies, Iowa. On the weekend of August 29 - 30, 2014. The exact location and schedule of events has yet to be determined.

We hope all the Midwestern players out there will look into trying to join us on either Friday, Saturday or both. The plan is to keep the costs to a minimum for those attending, so expensive events will not be part of the plan. Friday evening meet up at a local bar/restaurant for a drinks and some food. Saturday tentatively planning to fire up the grill, tap the keg(always tapped) and sit around a nice private pool and BS about how great we all are and how only those in attendance have the intelligence to fix all of the worlds problems by playing EvE online.

So pencil in the date and check back here or on any of the 4 podcasts for updates and final locations.

Click Here to RSVP via the Multiplex Gaming site.
* Link for evegate users

The more information we have a head of time of the amount people that will attend will allow us to be better prepared and have accurate counts for reservations and the sort.

Please post below with ideas of what you would like to do while in Des Moines. What activities you would be willing to attend?
*****Please keep in mind that there might be a few minors that might attend the meet up as well.*****

From the Twin Cities, its almost a 4 hour drive to Des Moines. It is 3.5 hours from Kansas City and about 6-7 hours from Chicago. I know it is a little more north than the exact middle, but this should be able to accommodate more people than not.

Anyone from New Eden is welcome to come.... and bring your friends and families. The more the merrier. Just let us know so we can make the appropriate reservations.

Friday night we will meet up at a local Bar/Restaurant in downtown Des Moines. We can hit up some food and drinks. We can just do introductions as people filter in, like Bronya did in Milwaukee. There are also several fun bars and clubs downtown for those who want to hit up the late night nightlife. I will get a group rate set up at the cheapest motel in the downtown area. I will also set up a group rate at a hotel in Altoona, IA right off of I-80.

Saturday we have the use of a nice private pool in Altoona, IA for some grilling out, more eve talk, and of course drinks.

For those of you on a tight budget, I am currently working on an option.

More info to follow:

Please if you think you may try to make it please reply to this thread so we can get a rough estimate of those who will try to attend. It will help me to make plans to help keep the costs down for all.

Hell why not. Sounds like a good time might be had.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Sounds like a good time, I'll be there. Even remembered to add it to my calendar.

Multiplex Gaming's site is currently being difficult with me (won't give me a captcha during account creation), I'll RSVP there in the morning, assuming it decides to work.
