MinneMania 2020 is a GO! Folks are welcome to piggy-back some vacation time at my place to enjoy Fall in Minneapolis, Minnesota before/after the poker (high temps ~60s, lows in 50s). The venue is my house, located 30min northwest of MSP airport in the suburb of Maple Grove (55311). I can accommodate about ten people staying indoors at my place, and have a couple of tents for those who camp--like @Ronoh . I plan to cap attendance ~34 max. Other meet-up hosts have priority for attendance, and lodging at my place.

We will have a dedicated HE/Pineapple variant table, other tables with a selected rotation of games that people want to play from a defined list, and table(s) where anything goes. Cash game stakes will be $0.25/$0.50. We will also have a limit afternoon, and a micro-stakes learning table open from time to time so people can learn new games with low risk. I'm sure there will be some OFCP too. I have up-to-4 tables that will likely be running: three downstairs and one upstairs. Please post or PM with conflicts/interest + the days you think you can attend!

LODGING:
  • Forrest (master) = TWRFS
  • @Ronoh (solo tent) = WRFS
  • @abby99 (master air mattress) = WRFS+
  • @ChaosRock (Queen bedroom) = WRFS
  • @k9dr (Queen bedroom air mattress) = WRFS+

GENERAL
I will have a variety of snacks, liquor, and sodas available all weekend. I don't drink beer, but I'll hoping someone will sponsor options. 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!

I may figure out a way to run a March Madness style OFCP tournament throughout the primary days of the event, just haven't thought about it yet. Pinball indoors + cornhole + lounging with cigars in the back yard by the fire pit. Shuck and 3-2-1 are banned in the house!
-------
SPONSORS
@CraigT78 = BEER
@bsdunbar1 = BEER
@Trihonda = SAT DONUTS
@Forty4 = SAT DONUTS
@Jon Udell = Secret Prize(s) Sponsor

In, but my back doesn't allow me to sleep on an airmattress. I'll get a room unless a bed opens up

I have a work trip planned for Minneapolis in September 2020. Exact dates are unknown and will not be for a while now. Would be interested in a tentative/wait list until I can see if I can get the dates synced.

In for all the days and all the things except the ME tournament on Saturday.

I can bring my BCC Lady Lucks again as a guest set if you like.

Hope nobody shows up on your doorstep next month! ;)

Yeah lock it up. If I have to upgrade or downgrade sleeping that’s fine. Are the donuts from the grocery store? (Can’t remember the name)

Have to check the flights but more than likely RFS

Forrest, if you still have room, I'd like to be put on the waiting list. No promises, because I can't predict work commitments that far out, but if I can make it work and you have a spot, I'd love to join the fun.

Sounds like a blast! But will the illuminati chips be ready by then?!? Are they the special addition?

My back has similar peculiarities.. but stiffer camp pads on the floor work well for me.

I’ll sponsor another couple dozen of those babies!

This is good news.. an away game means I don’t have mandatory overtime work that weekend.
