I would do 30 or 15 if we had some celeberty Guest this would almost be like the 501st party at C3, btw anyone know if the 501st is doing that again? That Was fun and well worth the 30.00 it costed to go. had to pay for your own drinks from the bar, but able to meet alot of new faces and talk with the Celeberties from Star Wars was really sweet.wvstarwarsfan said:Ok, OPX volunteers. This is what I found out so far. We can reserve a banquet room right down from the convention center at the beautiful Holiday Inn. I checked about a gathering from 7pm till 10pm on Weds the night before the event. The room holds a maximum of only 80 and thats the MAX. We can schedule a meet and greet there which is close and clean for us to mingle. It will cost us $15 a person without food and $30 if we want food. However it has to be either/or but cant be both. You will have to purchase any beverages at the bar probily. I can head this up for everyone. I would like everyones feedback first. I can set up to accept paypal for this and book the room, but only if there is 80 people interested. At these prices, we can gather up some cool door prizes, or maybe grab bags, however there isnt alot of pay room with that budget.
I was also thinking that since we are having an OPX volunteer gathering, maybe I can contact a few signers to appear and mingle with us...BUT THEY WONT BE ABLE TO SIGN ANYTHING!!! this is just to mingle and meet.
Im open for ideas and suggestions here, but I want to do this in style without breaking our wallets.
