Rust Belt non-Bake 2017

Post by skullion childs » Sun Oct 08, 2017 9:50 am

So...

Ramcatt isn't organizing this year because of new additions to his life.

A crew here in WNY tried to hook something up, but we got on it late and there seem to be few (actually, zero) places available that have the requisites (relatively near to steelhead water, open in November, cabins ideally with heat, far away from the public, a huge pile of flammable trash).

I don't want to let this thing die, so as a stopgap, the WNY crew are inviting people down the weekend of November 9-11.

There are a variety of options for places to stay:

1. I'm going to send my wife and daughter to a spa that weekend of and open the Skully manse to Drake folks who want to come down. It's a relatively big house (Skully: "I think the house can put up about 20 people." Ginseng Sullivan: "You can fit a hundred people in there. Seriously."). Because of the bathrooms (four), I think we can comfortably deal with about twenty people; maybe a few more. It's mostly floor space, as nearly all of the beds have already been claimed. It's relatively close to steelhead water, open in November, there's heat, but we're woefully short of a huge pile of burnable furniture

2. Hotels. Ironman has expressed a liking for Palm Gardens ("Hotel, Lounge & Karate School") in Springville, but there are dozens of other places around.

3. Other Drake folks. Some of the locals have said they might be able to put folks up. RockyMtHigh might also have a hotel hookup.

Executive Summary
RUSTBELT BAKEY-LIKE THING
November 9-10-11
Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights
Fishing thurs/fri/sat/sun

More info as we get ideas of numbers.

To crib from Ramcatt:

All are welcome*

*unless you are a shithead/deadbeat/shit starter/in bad standing with people who have done this in past years/ have a holier than thou attitude... and that goes for lurkers that you want to bring along.
This has been a fun weekend with no "real incidents", and it will stay that way.
Seriously
We all fuck around, do "what we do", and have a good time... and if you or someone you bring infringes on that... you're fucked


Let me know if you are coming, which nights, and where you're staying.

Four bathrooms? What the hell am I doing wrong? I mean, aren't we both in the same field?

Oh right. You live in Buffalo, NY.

Thinking about it, provided Mitch attends.

I wouldn't want to be the only one wearing tweed.

As for flammable trash, there's plenty available in your area, but we'll need a truck.

There's actually six, but two are not functional. Long story.

Is Ramcatt too busy with speaking engagements and updating his LinkedIn? :cheer
