So, thought we'd start a discussion on possible locations to play, maybe a few we can rotate through. Sort of a Multi-nerdtopia.

If I tidy my shop a bit (read: a lot) I can fit a pair of 6x4 tables with room to spare, and as I said, only issue would be heat. The shop will stay cold or warm depending on how it is, as it *is* insulated, but as the weather cools it will just stay cold. Not sure if 6-8 people inside would be enough body heat to warm it up, so I am looking at finding heaters.

Advantages: Outside (not in a house) so noise is less an issue, decent space, lights, power
Disadvantage: 20 minutes from CR and Courtenay, no heat currently, not huge so 2 tables or one large battle max.

Will post pics when I clean it out a bit.

I can supply heat and please guys show some enthusiasm, it is depressing me that there is no group.


I'd like to start having games nights with a few people playing at the same time again, I miss being able to have new opponents each night!

I am in. I am seriosly considering selling my 40k because there seems to be a lack of a 40k community in the valley even though the players are here. I also have a space that can be shared... have a garage and basement that can easily fit 3 tables if not more. Live in central Courtenay in a four bedroom house and no longer have room mates. Be nice for Gottocon and the group to have different players to play against, as BIGJON typed. What say you?

Define community I guess? Most of those I play with are adults, with jobs, wives, kids, and other commitments all that get in the way. 40K is lucky to break into my top 5 of priorities really and really falls outside it actually.

Its a hobby, I enjoy it and would contribute to renting a hall bi-weekly or something but in terms of community building? I'm not social enough, nor is 40K a big enough priority for me to be doing much to form a community (whatever the definition of that is in this case).

Me to bi weekle, or once a month seems reasonable. Would travel to others houses or offer up mine. Be nice to set it regularlily as terminator said our time is premium. Renting a place... are guys into that?

There are enough places to play, it's just tough for one location to host every time, even when that is what is needed to catch people on off weeks and help everyone to feel comfortable dropping in...

Well I guess the best way would be to just pick a saturday??? like they have been in the past, a saturday in the next couple of weeks... my place or someone elses.... I still need more lights and I do not have enough terrain for two tables. Does saturday generally work for folks? Anyone else have space?

The shop, as is, works well.
Now has heat, looking for a second 6x4 table (or a 2x4 sheet to help extend the 4x4 I have).
What woukld everyone like? Bi-weekly? set it up as we want games, or scheduled?

So, got a new 4x4 table, heres the official shop setup now.
Both are 4x7 tables, and still have the other table and some more space for putting supplies and munchies

Actually srg, if you want the heavy bag, we can negotiate something that works bounce
