I decided about 10 minutes ago that I will be hosting a Michigan Meet Up. Colleen is on board with it.

27 players max.

I have one bed and one couch for guests. @abby99 gets the bed if she wants it. The couch is smallish, but will go to one of the hosts that has provided me with sleeping arrangements. I have plenty of room out back for tents if that is your thing. I can also provide a three room tent if needed.

I will provide dinner on FRI. Dinner will be dependent on how many guests there are and if my wife is willing to prepare something. It very well could be sloppy joes.

I will also provide bottled water and soda. I will have some beer and bourbon available. I don't have the bankroll to provide unlimited alcohol.


THURSDAY

@Marc Hedrick will be hosting the THUR. meet up. Time to be determined. Were both going to be off that day. If things want to fire up late afternoon we can make it happen.


FRIDAY 11am - 2am

Friday will be cash all damn day. There will be two tables of .25/.50 cash poker with a 100 max buy in, half the deep stack rebuys. Both tables will be dealers choice. The third table will either be .25/.50 dealers choice or 3/6 limit dealers choice.

The sunsets will start off on Friday providing the chips for the two NL/PL dealers choice tables. We will use the sunsets until dinner time. At that time guests sets will be invited to hit the felt. If you want to bring a guest set please PM me.




SATURDAY 11am to 2pm

Cash poker. Same as Friday. Guests sets, or one of my many cash sets will be in play.


SATURDAY @ 2pm: MAIN EVENT TOURNAMENT (27 players max)

Buy in : $120.00's. $100 to the prize pool. $20.00 for dinner. Probably some type of BBQ

The tourney will be a NLHE and PLO round x round tourney. @Azcat will be in charge of the tourney (I guess I should ask him lol). We will be using his Harrow club tourney set.

SATURDAY @ 6pm: DINNER BREAK

Catered Dinner @ Home

SATURDAY AFTER TOURNAMENT
Cash Games to open as tables become available. Play to continue into Sunday am.

-------

GENERAL
I will have a variety of snacks, liquor, and sodas available all weekend. Donations to subsidize food & drinks are appreciated but not required. If you have a specific drink you want, either bring it or let me know!

If you bring a guest set and want to get it into play you will be required to run the bank while the sets are in play.

The above post is simply an outline of how the weekend could go. If "x" amount of players want to get a one table tourney going, a dedicated NLHE table, ect....that will be fine. The key this weekend will be to have a great time!

I'm sure I'll be editing the OP as I think of shit.

Chip pictures will be posted shortly!!!

For the sake of a schedule. Lets roll with this.

@Marc Hedrick is hosting the THUR night session. For now this is what we'll do. Things could change if Marc ends up taking that day off.

THUR:

Start time: 6 pm

.25/.50 with a 100 max buy in. Re buys are 100 or half the deep stack.

Game will be dealers choice for all three tables. If we have 24 players and 7-9 want to do a NLHE only table, a sit n go tourney, light circus, ect.....then rock and roll. If the players want it, then it will happen :)

I'm hosting the next two days.

Friday:

Start time is at 1130 am give or take 30 minutes pending breakfast

The Sunsets will be used at two of the tables. The third table will utilize @Rhodeman77 Club House set.

Game will be dealers choice for all three tables. If we have 24 players and 7-9 want to do a NLHE only table, a sit n go tourney, light circus, ect.....then rock and roll. If the players want it, then it will happen :).

After dinner I'm going to try and organize a sit n go tourney using @Poker Zombie custom cpc's. It will be a one or two table event (whoever wants to play). The buy in will probably be in the 40-60 dollar range. It will be NLHE/PLO r x r.

SAT:

Start around 11 ish.

We will play cash until 2 pm. Then the tourney will start. It will be a NLHE/PLO r x r event. We will be using @Azcat custom cpc's.


I have multiple cash sets. At any point if we want to get the bourbons in play, the TRK's in play, ect....We can do just that.

Friday's dinner will be on me. My wife makes an amazing Sloppy Joes. We'll serve a few salads and shit with it. Friday I will rake 20 bucks from the tourney buy in to cover food and a little bit of the alcohol expenses.

I'm not proud enough to not beg for endorsements/sponsorships of any food, beer, or give away's.

As for now I have a PCF roll out mat that @Tommy donated. He also donated the PCF lanyards. Thank you Tommy. @Redwing1967 is covering the expense of the name tags. @p5woody is doing the design.

I have an acrylic sunset button to give away. @Jeff is the only on that is not allowed to participate in the give away for that. I also picked up a couple of extra buttons here and there to donate to a prize pool.

I haven't even thought about trophies yet. Its probably going to be really simple and cheap. Maybe I'll have Colleen build something.

I'm planning on taking THUR/FRI/MON off. If your flying in and not renting a car I will gladly assist with picking you up at the airport. The Detroit Metro Airport is about 20ish minutes from my house. Even closer to Marcs.

If I forgot anything, please holler.

Well I was 95% out anyway, but i harboured a tiny dream that I might run good and book a sneaky flight over east during my Vegas stay.

Unfortunately my wife and her sisters and bro in laws arrive to meet me in LA on 6th.

I’m out :(

I might take you up on the couch but am more than willing to chop an airbnb with other attendees. Nearest airport ?

And I’m in obv. Edit: not as in as I thought I’d be. Middle son high school graduation 6/8/19. I’ll still play some I’m sure. Ironically we’ll be right next door at Eastern Michigan University.

There is a good chance I will able to attend at least 1 day. Can’t commit for sure at this point though.

I've been wanting to move up from attending 2 meetups a year to maybe 3 (4 or more :wow:) in the future. I've already scheduled 2 meetups for 19' with a 3rd as a strong possibility.

Will watch with interest but would say noncommittal at this time. :watching:

This shit is getting worse than reserving wedding days. :)
I can barely plan three weeks in advance (wife handles that stuff) let alone nine months (@Sprouty might have another kid in that time frame) :) but noted.
7 hour drive if uppity cut through Canada.

If you want all "cash", Friday would be the best day. Then, since your here on Friday, your might as well stay for SAT :) I put you in the "interested" section.

OP is updated. Less than 24 hours and were at one table already.

If @Azcat 's set can't spread three tables I might need to borrow a guest tourney set.
