The Anthro Con Thread

Recommended Posts

In the realization that a pleathera of Ordo will most likely be attending this year's Anthro Con in Pennsylvania I've come to the conclusion that we needed a thread for plans and arrangements, seeing as everyone is in a different situation, some requiring assistance, carpooling, etc. It will be nice to cooperate as a group and help everyone get there and have the fun there is to be had.

The following is an example of a situation form, to help ease the process and give a quick rundown of your situation and your current needs, feel free to update as you make progress on your own or with others... like a bio pre travel.

Basically, notes to yourself and others to help you and others get things set up and, get everyone there and back successfully, while having a great time. ;)

Feel free to add to the outline and use this thread to help with the planning needed for this trip... Hopefully this will ease stress and prevent last minute panic that inevitably happens to many. I hope to see you there, and that this thread helps you!

Don't feel bound to the outline! If you don't want to use it, thats fine! You can still communicate and work together with the group!

I believe this will be of great benefit to thos of us who wish to go, I would immensely appreciate it if this thread could be pinned up so that folks who could use this opportunity for help, don't miss it.

There is a forum for this sort of thing called "Offline Events"

This event is considered an Ordocon event, thus making it on topic, and representative of the interests of the personel attending... I felt it necessary to post it where it would be seen; as the projected amount of those attending this year is substantially greater than those events of the past, and it would be of help. While being easy to find, I don't think it is obstructive of the General Discussion Forum, but if you wish to administrate then by all means feel free to move it. I have no intention of standing against such if you are determined. :(
