2016 WDC Meetup Thread

Is anyone here going to the World Diplomacy Championship in Chicago this year? I took the plunge and this will be my first face to face tournament. If anyone else is going it might be fun to meet up and put some faces with names.

I plan on being there, but I like my anonymity.

That is rather un-carebearish of you. :( ;)

Anonymous or not, just make sure you register with me, if you haven't already. The venue is on a vertical campus in an urban environment, and the university has a strict guest policy. I need to turn in the final attendee list on June 21.

You can message me here or, if you prefer, you can send an email to weaselmoot@gmail.com. Or you can preregister and save money at [url]windycityweasels.org/wdc2016[/url]. Hope to see you there!

Hey Folks - I'm not playing this year, instead doing some videography, hoping to create a WSoP-style show after the fact.

In advance, I've been doing some preview videos. You might find them entertaining?

Well that settles it, I'm staying home then.

There were six other former WDC Champions playing, plus a number of regional champions - still worth going.
