    OFFICIAL: Rocky Mount, North Carolina Player Meet and Greet - Friday March 28, 2014

    OK all, let's make it official. I'll be driving through the area on March 28 and will likely be hitting Rocky Mount sometime in the 8PM time frame. Maximilian was kind enough to make some calls and find a llikely location for some BBQ (a man can only drive so far before has hast to eat!).

    Location:
    Smithfield BBQ - Rocky Mount
    670 N. Wesleyan Blvd
    Rocky Mount, NC 27804
    Phone: (252) 937-3032

    Date: Friday March 28,2014
    Time: 7:30pm - 8:00pm (remember, i'm driving from Boston!)

    If you're in, please post and let us know who and how many you're brining. Max will need to be able to call ahead and make sure there is space for us.

    Things to Keep in Mind.

    • Everyone is welcome.
    • Your tab is your tab. I'll dig up some LOTRO goodies, but your bar bill and food are on you.
    • Everyone who attends will get a code for the "Well met" title.



    Extra Life Meet and Greet Challenge!
    Each meet and greet I bring a trusty donation bucket for everyone to drop a few dollars into during the gathering to help raise funds for extra life. Same deal this time around! Who'll put up the biggest numbers this year?

    Last year Orlando raised $171 for Extra life at the meet and greet.
    Boston raised $250 at the Pax East Party.
    Buffalo raised $400+ at their meet and greet giving them a huge win!

    This is still, as far as I am concerned, happening on March 28. So just about a month away!

    I've never been but have been told its a great place to spend a weekend. Unfortunate for this trip I'm trying to hit a mid point on my drive to visit family in Florida. So this worked out to be a natural stopping point.

    Just Checking back in to see where we're at.

    Max, can you get us a count and make sure we're still good to go on the 28th?

    OK my best guess right now is 17. And yeah, if anyone has a hotel suggestion, I'm all ears.

    The following hotels are available near that exit:

    Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Rocky Mount, NC 672 English Road Rocky Mount, NC (252) 442-0500
    Holiday Inn Rocky Mount 200 Enterprise Dr Rocky Mount, NC (252) 937-7100
    Comfort Inn Rocky Mount 200 Gateway Boulevard Rocky Mount, NC (252) 937-7765
    Residence Inn Rocky Mount 230 Gateway Boulevard Rocky Mount, NC 27804 (800) 627-7468
    Courtyard Rocky Mount 250 Gateway Boulevard Rocky Mount, NC (800) 627-7468
    Hampton Inn Rocky Mount 530 North Winstead Avenue Rocky Mount, NC (252) 937-6333

    I also did a cross reference to the Bed Bug Registry and saw nothing in the area

    I can't recommend any in that area as I stay with my folks when I'm there but all of these are nice hotel chains.

    Okay folks I got the following people on this thread who've indicated they'd like to attend Smithfield BBQ in Rocky Mount later this month. If any changes just let us know!

    Maximilan 1
    Whybird 3 +1 possible
    Jakedrake 1 +1 possible
    Reianna 2
    UllrofAesiv 1
    Soccercake7 1
    CFinley 1
    Thorduak 1
    Surrenda 2

    Total now 13 +2 possible - oops well of course Sapience too

    The Smithfield BBQ restaurant we're meeting at can easily handle 20-25, so anyone else please feel free to join in!

    I appreciate Whybird making a list of accomodations nearby, there are several hotels off N. Winstead Drive - same exit as Nash General Hospital which is on the south side of US 64 and it is the first exit east of I-95. The Hospital is easy to see from US 64 and there are plenty of signs for it. This area is only a few miles from the restaurant and where I'd stay if I was needing a place.

    Depending on who feels up to coming, since we'll be traveling from East TN, (Not just to do the Meet & Greet but to visit family) and where one of my older kids will be during that time frame, I could have 2-5 people. Wish I could give you a better figure on that one, but 2 of them still don't know what they are doing and getting a straight answer out of the daughter is almost impossible. I also have a friend who lives there and who's family plays and I think all 4 of hers will be coming. So that's 6-9, as of current count.

    I have a tendency to get places early, has anyone given any thought on how we'll know each other? Other than the general pallor of our skin from being inside playing LOTRO all the time?? And Sapience, will you be in contact with anyone, or maybe just use Twitter, to update us if you're running late?
