I've been promising for years to get a legit meetup scheduled, and now that our basement is in the process of being finished, the time has come.

Etymology:

1.) Why "Poker Hall"?

Name of the poker room is "Amanda's Poker Hall", memorialized in this 43mm hybrid set

2.) Why "Legends"?

If you would be willing to travel across the country to play poker with a stranger that you met on the internet - one that has a crystal duck avatar, no less - you are Legends in my book.

3.) Why "vol 1"?

The goal is to have more, and this is the inaugural event

4.) Bonus

Acronym is PHL, abbreviation of Philly, my hometown. Would also be the airport you fly into if you decide to make the trip

When: Assuming the Greek alphabet doesn't wipe us out by then, Thursday through Saturday, September 8-10, 2022. Perhaps a local (@joepro?) can organize an AC run the night before.

Where: Collegeville, PA. About a 30 minute drive from Philly border.

What: Circus Games, NLHE, some sort of tourney on the last day. Stakes for any budget.

Who: All PCF members, with a max of 40-60 people (still assessing)

Accommodations: There are local hotels, which I will map out. I also have a pretty big house with a bunch of spare bedrooms and couch/floor space.

Feel free to express interest via the poll and if you would want to stay in my house. Note that I may have to get selective depending on the level of interest.

Thanks so much and look forward to hearing from you below!

Dan

Thanks for the tag Brie. I'll keep this on the back burner for the 0.01% chance I can make it, but nonlocal multi day meetups are basically out of the question for me with my two little ones. Plus I only have one week of vacation and 6 personal days that I'll have to keep saved up just in case I exhaust my sick time from now until next September, so time off would be an issue kids or not.

I can't wait to see how the basement renovation comes out Dan. I'm super jealous that you have the time and energy to do it. I don't think I'll ever get around to doing mine. I'll send you a PM in a bit regarding a Sunfly related question I have for you...

I'm in. Not sure to what capacity due to kids' sports and back to school activities, but I'll take that Friday off if possible. I would be able to help with a casino trip, Atlantic City is ambitious, expensive, and over an hour away plus traffic. Not completely out of the question but alternatives could be Parx (about 40 minutes away), Valley Forge Casino (no poker), or my house (20 minutes) or another location.

This sounds epic and I can't wait!

I am already taking a 2+ week vacation in 2022, so my company will probably give me crap for taking random Sept time off as well. I am not in the "Hell Yeah " camp, and I prefer my own hotel, so put me at 48.2% yes as I have been threatening for years to crash your game.

Does a wild bear sh*t in the woods....

Hell yeah, only thing that could stop me this time is Covid (and fully vacinated, booster comin')
Politics aside, we have skewed very heavily towards safety during the pandemic in order to protect the immunocompromised in our family (we've already had several deaths to be sensitive towards). I haven't hosted in nearly 2 years, so if Covid numbers are in a really bad place, that would be impactful with this event.

PA isn't like Colorado, but I'm down with smoking anything as long as outside.

Well, besides crack. Don't need a bunch of PCF crackheads running around my house
Dan...I love you (but like in a manly & platonic way)
