    Late entries

    Plan on 2 more bodies attending the festivities - my son and I are looking forward to the fun.

    Thanks,

    I may be a tad late....but I plan on coming. Myself and Havok. Always love these Cheers!

    Just a quick question - I was noticing in the paint graphic that all the outer RSVPers are standing; does this mean everyone who isn't at the table will be standing all evening, or will we be seated at other tables?

    Not to worry! There are tables for everyone, with fairly comfortable chairs. The standing was just based on Sink's comment that people tend to swarm Sapience at these things. We can certainly stay seated the whole time if we want to. Up to y'all.

    Depending on Peace Bridge traffic, we are hoping to get there right about 8ish. How early are people coming? I assume some of you will be donning some lotro swag (I will be wearing some) so hopefully we will spot the group lol....excited to see everyone and finally try this place out. Havok has been there many times. I heard it was good

    I will probably be there by 7:45.

    When folks arrive, especially if you're early, the group's reservation is under "Turbine" for 8:00pm. If you're coming in the main door from the street (i.e., you're very close to both the skywheel and the road), our area is at the back on the left-hand side. Don't go up or down any stairs once you're in the restaurant itself, and keep heading back and left. If all else fails, follow the smell of dwarven ale.

    Evening all! I hope those of you who came out had a great time and enjoyed the food! I know we Canucks fall short on sweet tea and ice coffee, but hopefully Boston Pizza was up to snuff for y'all.

    Huge thank you to Sapience for putting this together for everyone, and for taking time out of your vacation to meet some players and have a good chat. Sorry that I missed the trivia and adventures at the end of the night: hope someone took a few videos for that!

    See y'all in the game;

    Talking

    Sitting here with Rubypearl, Arbalister, Dryadsong, Andjay, AnadElgoff, Bagwowwer, and a whole bunch of others. Sapience is making the rounds of the tables and a good time is being had by all.

    It's trivia time! If the restaurant didn't have the music so loud I might actually be able to hear some of it.

    Gah! >_<

    Have they turned it up since I left? Still not sure what they're like when they go full bar-mode.

    Just wanted to thank Sapience and Warmutkan for doing this. I (Magriel) and my Hubby (Garrathor) had a great time and were so happy to meet you all. Sapience, you were so generous, both with what you gave away and for giving us your time - thank you. And Warmutkan, you did a fantastic job setting this all up - were you the one who relocated us from Angmar (the lonely other side of the section) to Bree?

    If anyone is on Vilya, feel free to add us!

    I don't think so - must've been a kindly elf! Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves!

    A hearty thanks from Curuthingol and Linhiril. The location was great for us - only about 45 minutes from Hamilton, Ontario. Our first meet and greet, so a very pleasant surprise. Your time, making the rounds for a bit of chat and gifts were much appreciated! Unfortunately, I was caught like a deer in headlights during the trivia contest (I blame it on being 'star-struck' over my first audience with Sapience) - but there's always next time! Thanks again, and well met to you all!

    I enjoyed myself, and so did Edhriel. Thanks to everyone who helped arrange/organize, and to all those who showed up. Still waiting for Sapience's dinosaur photo.

    With all the games, sight-seeing, and dizzying array of activities going on around us, we felt that the Niagara Falls strip setting for this gathering was very appropriate. And the nearby miniature golf courses, for example, set around a large man-made volcanic mountain which blasted out hot flashes of fire and smoke, reminded us of Mount Doom.

    We didn't get a chance to speak with everyone, but those we did talk to were very warm and receptive (I especially enjoyed the company of so many interesting and friendly Canadians). Although we may enjoy different aspects of Lotro for various reasons, its obvious that everyone shares the same passion and enthusiasm for the game.

    As for Sapience, you're a very likable down-to-earth easy to talk to kind of guy. Thanks for doing this and thank you to the others for making it happen.

    Sure seemed like, it got pretty hard to carry on a conversation after a bit.

    Great night though, good fun. and some nifty swag. :-)

    We had a wonderful time!

    Thank you, Sapience, for driving out here, for all the time you spent with the group, for the trivia questions, and for all the goodies!
    We hope to be able to attend next time you are in the vicinity.

    Thank you, Warmutkan, for making the reservation, nice venue!

    The volcano outside was the icing on the cake.

    You can donate directly here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?...cipantID=88974

    I'll be putting in the money collected at the event. I wrote down what it should work out to after exchange rate and I think it's going to come in around $300-$310 when it's all said and done. Which is FANTASTIC!
    That's for all the generosity!

    Thanks! I'm glad you had a good time. I think the venue was great. The mini-golf and volcano outside really did make it a lot more interesting!

    I think they did. I know it went from feeling most 'background' to feeling like I was trying to talk over it by the end of the night. Maybe when it gets past a certain time they turn it up. I know a number of bars that do taht.

    Just a quick update, after the exchange and transfer the Total amount raised during the meet and greet was $315! It has been added to the total as of this post. It just drove our total to within $125 of the next goal ($7k) for 2014 and drove the 3 year total to over $75,000.00 raised to help heal sick kids. AMAZING!
