I don't want to push for anything. I've only been actively posting on here for a few days now, and I have no intention of being pushy or stepping on anybody's toes. I just wanted to make sure I put the offer on the table as a host, as I believe I'm in a fairly unique position to help out.

My store is well-lit, it's easily accessible by public transportation in a city with an international airport, and it currently contains nine 69' folding tables, four 8' folding tables, and three home-made 4'x6' extra tall wooden tables with cubbies all around the edges, built with the express purpose of war-gaming and/or roleplaying usage. We're also a vendor of snack-foods, complete with a soda machine in the play area and bottles of water up front, and will soon be a vendor of mini-figures (in case anybody needs any last minute additions for their army), not to mention we're located on a college campus, nearby a wide variety of eateries as well as a 24-hour grocery store. Our regular hours on the weekends are 11AM to 10PM but we frequently stay open much later when an event requires it (as late as 7AM for Magic prerelease tournaments).

And maybe most importantly, we can host this sort of an event without the need for someone to pay a lot of money up front to rent a hall. We're actively trying to host Brik Wars events anyway, so we'd happily provide the space for free as part of our regularly scheduled events line-up. Also, if there's enough interest, we'd be happy to try to arrange some sort of discounted rate at a nearby hotel for out-of-towners. That's a long way off, obviously, and I'd like to think we'd have enough room for everybody without anyone having to pay hotel bills, but I think it's something we could arrange if there's enough demand.

I recognize that the Midwest would be more centrally located, and I respect that, and I'll absolutely travel to whatever location is chosen, but I think my space offers a lot of upsides, and the offer's on the table. I just want to make sure everyone's aware of what we have going for us.

Thanks, dudes!

I think that Philly sounds like an outstanding location for RagnaBrik 2012.  I am most definitely willing to travel there from my state.

Long-assed drive either way for me.

Exactly, if you're too far out, it will be extremely far either way and we have a game store already in Philly that has offered to host.

Heroism is not the ability to kick ass. It is the willingness to use this ability on any poor bastard who so much as looks at you funny.

In my opinion, if it was in Cali(and i could make my own decisions) i would drive there. But Philly is a good location for a lot of people and we have a willing host. Sounds good to me! Nobody said you had to go, but it would be great to match the text to the face and i hope you do too. I know I'm going for that purpose and to have a true Brikwar for once!
Holy shit, I'm still here?

Give the distance of the nearest Trader Joe's from the store. Then I'll make my decision. :iwolf:

I pass a Trader Joe's on my way to/from Philly, Ham.  You can just send me your order and I'll bring it  8)

The nearest Trader Joe's is indeed two and a half miles away, but less than two blocks away there's a Fresh Grocer, which may work just as well for you. They have plenty of overpriced vegetarian food, including those rad Sunneen sandwiches like the power sandwich, or the all pro sandwich, or the dill-lucious sandwich.

I can get to Philly pretty easily actually. I have friends of family there that I can crash with for a few days.

All I want to know is who'll be picking me up from the airport and taking me there?

I'm sure a ride from the airport could be arranged, but honestly there's a train that goes from the Philadelphia International Airport to a station about five or sixty-nine blocks from our store. And if that walk is too long, you can take the train to the next station and then catch the subway to a stop less than two blocks from our store.
