EVE New England! August 15-17

For the past several years, TDSIN has held a BBQ lasting a weekend at one of our corp members farms, with the size and awesomeness growing each year.

Last year, we invited some non-corpies and had a great time getting to meet some of the people we shoot at often in person and we want to further expand upon this.

This year, we would like to invite all of EVE.

So, some details!

When: The BBQ will be Aug 15-17, more or less going all weekend; it'll be starting Friday afternoon, and ending noon-ish on Sunday. Come for however much you'd like to. The main events will take place in the afternoon/evening of Saturday the 16th, so if you can only spare one day try and make it that one!

What: Primarily consisting of eating and hanging out, we are also looking into potential events this year since the size is rapidly increasing over previous years.

Where: Central New Hampshire, US. One of our corp members owns a 200-acre farm, so in the past, we start a bonfire, grills and eat/drink the night away, sometimes to live music by talented ( or non talented) people playing instruments. Exact address will be given to those who RSVP.

Other details:

The farm is somewhat far away from any larger cities, but there is a hotel nearby; no idea how large it is, but many people end up just crashing in sleeping bags/their cars. Some have brought tents in the past. The weather up here is usually plenty warm enough to camp under the stars in August.

The event takes place at the home of a corp member, so we ask that people be respectful of the location; by all means, have fun, but remember that you're at someones house.

***UPDATE****
After discussing it with the host and some of the other people helping plan the event we decided that it will be infinitely simpler to sell tickets rather than try to manage 70+ of you bringing your own food and drinks to share. So without further adieu

Tickets can be purchased here:
Event Site


Please note that as requested by the host, the exact address of the event is provided upon purchasing a ticket. Please take the extra minute to fill our the survey attached to the ticket ordering as it will be very helpful in planning the event!

Finally, I am looking for interested sponsors! We estimate 60-90 people will be in attendance and will have T shirts for the event so if you are looking to get your name out there ( or on a T shirt!) Please don't hesitate to let me know!

Sponsors!
Battleclinic!

Shattered Crystal

**UPDATE** First 50 plex giveways all sold out

Got my flights all lined up!

I am currently talking to CCP Guard about having a Dev or other CCP representative come out. We have a couple CSM coming to the event already.

Can't wait to meet all you crazy EVE people at my first EVE community event!

Rhode Islander here, I should be able to swing thru with some beer, so long as the landowner doesn't mind me pitching a tent in his backyard :D
Unsettled.

Damn. I'm home from school right around there, but that's right when I'm supposed to leave. If I was flying both ways I might have made it Friday, but since I'm driving this time...

Oh well. Have fun guys!

That's what we generally do!

Personally, I'm setting up an air mattress in the barn.

I don't think they'd pass directly through, but I can take a bus up to Buffalo and they could pick me up there, that's not too far out of the way.

Can we have an event in New Hampshire without horseshoes? Yeah, didn't think so. I also suggest cow tipping.
