It's a week and a half away from MAGClassic, but that won't stop me from making a thread for...

MAGFEST 2016

As usual, this is the most awesome gaming event on the east coast, and if you're in the area come February, you'd better not miss it.

Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center
201 Waterfront Street
National Harbor, MD 20745
Feb 18 - 21, 2016

I'll be driving there from Columbus! Is anyone doing the Group Leader registration for an OCR group? I'll hold off on registering for now in case we decide to do that. Also, I'm hoping to stay in the OCR suite if Wes will have me.

Ok you know I'll be there, and (barring unforeseen circumstances) Jenner will also be there.

 

I'd better go ahead and get the room/reg taken care of tomorrow, now that that's open.

Alright guys, I'll take on the group registration. I'll need you guys to PM me your details.

 

Looks like group registration is $40 and will increase to $45 on Sept. 30. I'll keep this open until Sept. 20, so get me your info before then!

 

From what I can gather, I will need from you:

 

First name, Last name

DOB

email address

Zip/Postal code

Emergency contact number

Your Cell number

 

I will get paypal info from you guys a little closer to when I reg!

You can expect me, 3rd Strike, and possibly more "How To ReMix" panel goodness.

So how do I make sure I'm in the OCR block? I don't see a section for group name?

-Nevermind, I'm a derp. didn't realize it was on the Magfest site and not the hotel site.

Unless my financial situation changes (or I get accepted as a DJ--we'll see, they won't be announcing that for a while), I'm unlikely to attend.

FWIW, the rooms are almost out in the Gaylord, so reserve asap!

Whoa... rooms are sold out *already*? This isn't a misprint or anything (like, they're not withholding rooms or something)?

 

...damn. I registered still, but now I'm wondering if I should wait and see if Gaylord rooms will open up, or if I should go ahead and book one of the other rooms at the Residence Inn or Hampton Inn across the street. How is the OCR block gonna work out with this? KF

Honestly, I have no idea for sure, but I would assume that the blocks are Gaylord only, so if you're in an overflow hotel (of which there are already three available at http://magfest.org/bookhotel), you're kind of just on your own.

OK, so I went ahead and booked a room at the Marriott Residence Inn across the street.

Maybe we should set up an unofficial OCRverflow block? KF
