Calling all nerds! VGF MEET-UP 2019!

That's right, folks. It's been 5 years since this:

And it's time to make it happen again.

WHO? You!
WHAT? Get together for 3-4 days, play lots of video games, explore the city of Chicago, imbibe, play Mafia, and lose to ML in Smash
WHEN? June 2019
WHERE? Chicago, once again!
WHY? Because we are Very Good Friends who like to see each other in person, too!
HOW MUCH? This depends on what kind of lodging we end up getting, but we can discuss that later. Just plan on paying for your own transportation, food, and then splitting the cost of lodging with the rest of the attendees.

Since planning for a meet-up involves a fair amount of personal information being shared, our very own HotD has offered to make us a private forum in which we can do the more specific planning--exact dates, exact location, contact information, and things of that nature. Please avoid those details in this thread; this is basically pre-planning.

What I need from you right now: Simply reply in this thread to express your interest in a June 2019 Chicago meetup! If you say you are interested, we'll add you to a list and you'll have access to the private planning forum when that gets created.

I am interested, but at this point, I have absolutely no idea where I'll be or what I'll be doing by then

Private forum is ready, @Marilink, so just let me know when you want access to be granted. :D

Okay, I'm at a place where next year I can budget for one trip. It's kind of between VGF fam and a really close hometown friend who moved to Minnesota a couple years ago that I was planning on visiting. I am leaning toward VGF because it's WAY rarer for us all to get together, but I just want to preface that there's a chance I will have to bail -- HOPEFULLY NOT. I LOVE EVERYONE HERE. Sign me up for the planning board please!

I'm also interested in a non-committal way. Haven't planned out all my 2019 vacation days yet and not sure if I can fit this in.

oh my GOODNESS we get a Jere?!?!?!

As we mentioned to you when we met for lunch last week, we'd love to do it and are tentative yeses. Squeege lost his login in the Great Server Migration of 201X and is too lazy to make a new one, but please to add me to the planning board; he can post vicariously through me. Or something. Lol.
Do you know how much you mean to me
Why must you leave~?
