RCP track at Nekocon anime convention

Nekocon is an anime convention, November 3-5th in Hampton VA. They're going to have a large RCP track set up in the dealer's room in one of the How Fast Are You layouts with a Core Speedway lap counter, courtesy of Arch2B and the DCGTG.

Come and show off your skills and have fun at a great convention with lots of Japanese products and Jpop culture.

I could probably come out with another set of 2 Wide L's and have a second HFAY track if there is enough interest...I guess it depends on how much space we have.

Actually, maybe I can reserve my track for the Overlands and Monsters! There's still some time to figure it out...

I'm pretty sure we have a 40'x40' section of the dealer's room (Hall A) reserved for the track. If we need/want more space, we might be able to set up in Hall B instead, where it's pretty much just space for the concession stand, the art show, CCG tables, etc. To give you an idea of the scale, the ramps on the loading dock are big enough for a tractor trailer to pull into the exhibit halls. We would have all the space we could possibly want. I'd just have to run it by the Con Chair, and it would mean the track would be open all hours of the convention instead of Dealer's hours. I'll try to get those hours for you...

Dealer hours are Fri: 2:00pm - 8:00pm, Sat: 10:00am - 6:00pm, Sun: 10:00am - 3:00pm

Wow, that's handy, pure coincidence that the prereg deadline is today... funny how an annual even sneaks up on you... anyway. The Con Chair already agreed to set up a group rate for racers, I just need to get the details from him about it (sorry I don't have it right now).

If you're just coming to race, it's a bit expensive, but if you're also an anime fan, it's a great deal.

ai7, can you post details such as entry fee's for racers if any? just want to make sure everyone has access to all the info and since this is sort of a side attraction at the convention i don't know that the info is available on the website.

Trying to get a hold of the chair to ask him about it.

Okay, stalking down the group rate thing.

Looks like Hall B is a go. We just need a rough estimate of the required space. The room is so huge we could all three bring all our track and it should fit, just gotta make certain. I have two wide ovals. Arch was going to supliment them with his track so he doesn't have to transport so much. That's still okay, but if you want to bring more since we have the space, that would be cool too. Just total up the square footage.

Hall B hours are 1200 2400 Friday, 0800 to 2400 Saturday, and 0800 to 1700 Sunday. We can start and stop in these hours as we like, but the room won't be secured during these hours so we need somebody to be there. Arch, I'll be available to help you staff so you and Spoon can get out and about if you like.

Okay, I have the racer group membership discount information. The rate is $23 for a three day membership, good through October 31st. At door is $45, this is a great deal. Pay pal or check. Please send me an email if you want the pay pal link or membership form.

Nekocon is going out of their way for us on this one, prereg discounts usually don't run so late, hence not just posting up the information.

Track Layout

So, I asked Briankstan to whip up a layout for us based on the amount of track that we'll have and some other parameters. If you look, you'll notice that the Nov HFAY layout is built into the course and there is an offshoot for some OL obstacles. I told B that we would have 3 L's and 2 Ovals with some additional blank tiles. I guess it depends on what we Arch can fit in his truck but this is a great layout to work with.

There's a larger version here.
