Will Mirth even make it there this year?  I think this is the dashcam video of him getting pulled over on the way last year, isn't it?

Sounds like me, but I was never excited about watching a Bill Clinton speech.

Alrighty, Thudpuckers!

The official Origins event matrix is live on their website, and we've got 67(!) events we're running over 3-1/2 days

So, if one of us thudpuckers(?) wanted to join in on one of those 67 events do we just show up and pay generic tokens? Do we per-register for them?

You can pre-register for specific events, but that has not opened yet on their website

You can also just show up with generics, but ticketed players have priority

This year, we capped our event numbers lower so our fill rates won't look so crappy. So there's a limited number of tickets for our events. But we've NEVER turned away a player w generics because a game was 'full'. We always make space

I've not gotten a hotel room yet.  I'm thinking about the airport area and just driving in every day. 

Thoughts?

Only 11 or so hours drive from my house! 
Unlike Mirth, I have a pool and alcohol that has not been drunk!
