In case of rain

Just wanted to make a separate post about where we'll be in case of rain, since I only edited the meetup post and some of you may not have noticed. There are supposed to be isolated thunderstorms on Sunday. The chance is low, but I would feel better about meeting indoors to avoid the risk of everyone getting rained on.

So here's what will happen. I will check the weather on Sunday morning to see what the forecast is like, and if there's still any chance of rain, we'll meet at our old spot in the convention center next to the escalators. Again, this is ONLY if there is a chance of rain. Otherwise we'll meet at the previously designated spot the East Outdoor Wall.

This is the forecaster I normally use and will be checking: http://www.weather.com/weather/today/Chicago+O'Hare+International+IL+USIL0028

If it's convenient to you, I encourage you to check the same forecast Sunday morning as well so that you already know where we'll meet. Otherwise, I will probably stand by the East Outdoor Wall to direct you to the indoor location (if it's not me I'll have someone else there). I chose this spot because most of us already know where it is to avoid confusion, and it was my thought that some of you would appreciate the familiarity. I hope it's not too inconvenient for you!

If for any reason we meet outside and we begin to feel rain, just walk inside (the East Outdoor Wall is next to an entrance) and there should be an open space for us to continue in. I don't want to make you walk all that way toward the convention center in the rain. There is a slim chance of this happening since it would mean that the forecast was totally wrong; they're more likely to predict rain and we don't get any.

artemiscangee will be overseeing the meetup and aerie_star will be there for you to report your card collections to. Don't forget to bring blankets or cushions to sit on!

I KNOW, I've never even been to an Acen where it rained (at least I don't remember one) so I'm pretty bummed! I was really looking forward to a nice outdoor picnic!

Well we managed to not get rained on(or melt in the unexpected heat). I think it was a great meetup despite having to move to the convention center.
I was a little disappointed that the picnic part didn't really happen, but i didn't have any trouble getting rid of the cookies I brought.
I will try to have some pics up soon. : )

It seemed like the swap was going to last longer since a lot of people showed up at different times, so I'm sorry there wasn't a picnic really. It's unfortunate that the meetup got booted from the hotel--I figured everyone would be more discreet with sales since sales aren't really allowed outside the exhibit hall, and signs aren't allowed either. Now I feel like I should have reminded everyone beforehand. If I'd noticed at the meetup, I'd have told them to get rid of them. I'm surprised that the staff was ok with everyone selling at all, but I guess that's a good thing!

I'm glad you still had fun!
