Hello RT Florida members!
Our first meetup is only a few days away and we're making this post for a summary of everything to expect. Convenient, right?
Date: DECEMBER 13
Time: 6:00 PM - WHENEVER
Location: THE CLOAK AND BLASTER PUB - Located in the Shoppes at Waterford Place Plaza
875 Woodbury Rd, Ste 108
Orlando, Florida 32828
A few important notes...
Shirts: Everyone who replied to the previous event post will receive their shirts at no cost. This is coming out of our pockets to give you guys a piece of memorabilia to commemorate how awesome it will be. Anyone who would like to buy a shirt, whether you couldn't make it, or because you'd like another one, or whatever, you can absolutely do so. Shirts are $10 a piece, just contact either myself or Will and we'll hook you up.
Cost/Donations: This has come up a bit. Any reservation fee for the event is being covered and the shirts, as mentioned above, are at no cost to attendees, so the only things you need to worry about buying are food and drinks. This being said, if anyone did want to donate any money to the group, it'll all be put towards future events, contests, and giveaways for out little sub-community.
Availability: We are not renting out any part of the location, so it will be a first come first serve type of deal. However, because the event starts at 6:00 pm when the pub opens, we pretty much have first dibs, though that doesn't mean other people might join later. Though, this place isn't usually packed so we'll be fine.
Upstairs Lounge: This works in two ways- There are a few couches with open seating, and then there’s console space. Food will be more than welcomed upstairs; our server for Sunday will be Collin who will take the food and drink orders. Because he will be dealing with nearly 15 people, please be nice and be sure to tip him something at least.
Games and Consoles: Cloak and Blaster has a library with Wii U and Xbox One consoles for their customers to use, but they also have a policy regarding playing time everyone should be aware of. They require $5 per half hour, however, because we're such an awesome group, we are covering this fee for the time that our group will be there. Also, they do not allow any personal games, so please do not bring any of your own. They also have a collection of tabletop games for everyone to play, but these will be first-come, first-serve as the night goes on.
We would love for people to film and photograph the event to have to help promote the group and future events. If you do record anything that you would like to share, let either Will or myself know, as well as any questions you may have in general.
And of course, as a common rule, don't be a dick.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone Sunday!
-Victoria and Will
