    I am all for this, even though the middle-to-end of July might not be the most fun time to spend at Cedar Point! But, hey, it won't stop me from coming!

    Cedar Point is starting to shake loose with their rates, dates, and hours, normally that hits about February here. The fine line to work on, is to what extent we setup formal a gathering time or times.

    Cedar Point is about a 45 minute drive from me. Not having to pay for a plane ticket? I might be able to attend this one!

    edit: Actually, it's about an hour. I was thinking of something else. But, still, it's close enough!

    This sounds like a fun time, although I do not have a car... and I am a considerable distance from Ohio. I would need a plane ticket to get there. It would be fun to go there, if I am able to.

    Re: LOTRO-CON 2012, July 21. Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio

    Good stuff, I'm in Bowling Green personally. I'm about done with the project outline, which is a bit more detailed that the name implies. There are some groups that have expressed an interest in aiding the project, and I'm about to send replies off to them, and look forward to hearing more from others.

    In about a week, I will have an round-table discussion in our TeamSpeak3 server, for those serious about having their own "Kin-moots," which I've previously called mini-cons. And anybody else that might want to plug into a scheduled event, etc. Lots of details to pin-down, but most all of this should be pretty much failsafe.

    Re: LOTRO-CON 2012, July 21. Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio

    Week of February 13th, I'm going to have a roundtable discussion about the event on our Teamspeak3 system. Mainly as a chance for interested parties to ask questions, and possible supporting Kinships and LOTRO constituencies to work on plans and such.

    I'm pulling the basic outline together also, in edited form, I'll present it here also.

    The long-form guide to accommodations, local venues, and such, remain to be finished.

    Re: LOTRO-CON 2012, July 21. Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio

    LOTROcon

    Event summary.

    A social gathering of The Lord of the Rings Online players at Cedar Point, in Ohio, for the dates of July 20, 21, and 22.

    Considerations.


    LOTRO players span a wide range of backgrounds, with interests, and financial means. The event and activities within LOTROcon are intended to provide a means for all to participate. Likewise, not all may choose to participate from all activities presented. Accordingly, the proposed slate of dates, activities, are intended to be compartmentalized, balanced in nature, and capable of scaling in scope and number.

    Scope of activities.

    Three basic categories of events exist, referred to here as "copper," "silver," and "gold."

    Copper activities do not require physical space, have no cost, no RSVP requirement, and can be joined or left at any time.

    Silver activities are scheduled for specific times and places. They are optional for attendees, have no minimum cost, but may present opportunities for spending. The present the low/no-cost opportunities for those of limited means to feel fully a part of the event.


    Gold activities are those which present a certain cost, which can possibly stretch the budget of those with limited means.

    Copper activities.


    • Quests (open ended scavenger hunts, looking for icons in the amusement park. This could be done by simply having people txt message photos of places or things to a specific person or site.)
    • Kin-moot (optional gatherings of individual Kinships represented. Bring a kin to the Moot!)
    • Ride fellowships (groups of members doing rides together. It is an amusement park, lines are long, this is an obvious suggestions, and the below noted mobile phone app could aid in people gathering)
    • Show raids (select shows, such as the end-of-day fireworks/laser show.)
    • LOTROcon (Likely a couple of hours.)



    Silver activities


    • Second breakfast (Saturday, Sunday morning, before Cedar Point opens, likely off of Cedar Point. Given that most people will stay in hotels not hosted on Cedar Point, a good breakfast location where people can gather in numbers, be social, enjoy a hardy breakfast is the goal. It is also a good way to schedule something in the hours before the park opens)
    • Beverages and Stories? (Saturday night after party, possibly held on-site at a Cedar Point night-sport, or otherwise.)
    • Tolkien-moot (an undefined pilot program, Sunday morning after Second Breakfast, likely at a common location to it. Intended as a deeper, longer, alternative to returning to the amusement park. Held on Sunday to maximize attendance, avoid requiring larger costs to attendees unable to afford a second day at the amusement park, and to avoid over-scheduling Saturday. This event could skew heavily towards the serious, even look to expand into a semi-stand-alone event in the future.)



    Gold activities


    "A dinner of special magnificence" at the Nagoya Japanese Steakhouse in Hotel Breakers. (Friday night. Intended as the formal kick-off event, for those who enjoy finer dining, conversation, and something of a show. Likely to segway into an after party.)



    It is expected some, or many attendees will need to depart Sandusky Sunday morning and afternoon. So most anything scheduled Sunday will be towards the morning and early afternoon.


    Accommodations.


    Cedar Point is located in the heart of a major regional summer vacation area. There accommodation options include full-service resort hotels, mid-range and value priced hotels, lake-side cottages, RV campgrounds, Bed and Breakfasts, etc. Cedar Point itself, has several on-site resorts, include some which beach-side access. Cedar Point also maintains several off-site resorts and hotels. A comprehensive guild to accommodations, broken down by price and service, should be provided, and individuals free to book as their budget or interest direct them.

    The location of Cedar Point requires driving through Sandusky to reach the park. As such, there is no reason to attempt to focus on any specific facility. Indeed, this is a reason the area is attractive for the event.

    Travel

    Cedar Point is based in Sandusky, Ohio. It is immediately accessible to the Ohio Turnpike (Interstates 80/90.) It is less than two hours drive-time from Cleveland and Toledo. It is within three hours of Detroit and Columbus. It is within five to six hours of Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Buffalo. It is within a single days drive of New York City, Minneapolis, Atlanta, St. Louis, and beyond.



    There is no national air-service directly to Sandusky. However there are small airports for those with means. The three nearest, major airports are Cleveland, Detroit, and Columbus. Air service to Toledo is possible, but rare.



    Cedar Point, as well as Sandusky both feature large, full service marinas, and short term docks are easily secured without reservation.



    Greyhound does provide bus service to the area.



    Amtrak has stops in Toledo and Cleveland.



    Family friendly aspects.



    Cedar Point and the surrounding accommodations are exceedingly family friendly. Those who travel with their children will find Cedar Point to be among the most entertaining venues on Earth. Likewise, family friendly accommodations in the area are ample and affordable, even at the peak season. The events at LOTROcon themselves are entirely family friendly, in that nothing adult in theme is planned. The after parties Friday and Saturday will be clearly implied as "mature" and likely settings for adult beverages to be consumed. Cedar Point does sell adult beverages in the park, for consumption in a limited number of locations. However the park polices general conduct and beverage consumption, so that need not be a direct concern to event organizers.

    I like that this has almost a taste of the Browncoat Ball! I can't wait!

    Darn, I meant to check this thread a few weeks ago to see what was up, just to now find I missed a planning session! Nurts!

    Any new news?


    And a 'What's up?' to the BG peeps on here. Roll Along, Falcons!

    Not much came of the planning session, too short of notice. On balance I think this rates as a purely social occasion at this point. Too late to really do credit to more in-depth Tolkien-Moot events. Might work to try it separately, then merge the two for 2013.

    Time enough now to start drawing together folks who are serious about attending though. That is the main task now.

    Starting first week of June, I am going to start firming things up. We'll start some Teamspeak round table talks. See what cut and what to build-out for gatherings and activities. My thought is still close to the base concept, which is that this should be a basically social gathering. Future events, even other regional gatherings in the same name, we can get a bit more creative.

    Indeed. I'm working on the on-site registration form, and polishing the details.

    I'll give the short-version for now, since we have folks making reservations this weekend already.

    The designated "Hotel" is "Breakers Express," located at the end of the causeway at Cedar Point. Folks who know the park are familiar with it. It is affiliated with the park, has the normal pool, hot tubs, free WiFi, etc. The costs are as low as Cedar Point related accommodations go. There are some cheaper rooms in the old Bon Air wing of Breakers, but that requires a certain kind of person, given the age and lack of elevators in the 100+ year old classic.

    Cedar Point shifted into high-gear for the season this past week, so most attractions and options are now out there and open. The Japanese steakhouse should be good to go for Friday night dinner, there is Perkins in Breakers now, so breakfast is covered. Not going to do a Tolkien Moot this year, but have something very particular, detailed, and broader to lay roots for either next year or sub-annual gatherings on a local basis. More on that later. There is a mini-golf course, so we'll need to do a tourney. And there is now a boat ride out into the lake, around the park, and back. Takes 40 minutes, but having taken such rides, could be fun.

    Hard reservations, meaning money down at a hotel, that I know of already, is up to 18, but I haven't even actually emailed or started a proper survey. I'm figuring we are good for at least 50 at this stage, and as soon as we do a couple of round-tables, and we start having folks report, we'll get deeper into group rates on other things.

    Work progress' in short. I'm already very sure this won't be a one-off, based on how things are going already.

    Are you looking into getting group tickets? I saw on the Cedar Point site that they offer a couple of decent perks for groups, including a $7 all day drink wristband, which is probably the cost of only two drinks!
