Room booked, pre-registered and getting my ASLOK stuff ready already!
Dave, I am assuming your picnic is on? After all of these years one of my highlights has been attending your picnic; eating great food prepared by you and the missus; drinking heavily (of course!); watching some Sunday NFL games, then the bonfire. If we all can choose our personal idea of what heaven would be, an eternal ASL picnic comes to my mind.
One of these years I have to come for the picnic. But its hard to justify another night in a hotel for (I only live 2 hours away from hotel) for the picnic. Its already super expensive of a week.

Peace

Roger

You could get a game in before the picnic.

The picknick is worth it. Give it a try one year, if you do not like it you will never be expected to show up again.

I played Hill 621 last year, and missed it. This year I will select a more picnic-compatible scenario and attend. Promise :) .

And thereby prove that I am not a teetotaler, despite all rumors to that effect :) . I just don't drink and play ASL :) . FADA.

Sunday is a good day to get started on playing that ASL monster you never have time for at home. I try to start a monster (or monster playtest) by early Sunday afternoon. Around 4:00pm take a break, leaving the scenario set up ready to resume (just remember what turn it is), go to the picnic and retrun. Once you return you have to check your watch and sobriety, then decide on getting in a few turns or not. Otherwise, up and at 'em Monday morning.
While at ASLOK I have nothing else planned...

My buddy and I tend to play large scenarios at ASLOK as well. For the same reason: never get to play them live and FtF (we play VASL so its easier to save the file and have at it again the next week.

Alas, he will not be there this year.

Alas, I was actually planning on being at ASLOK for two consecutive years (having broken my 14-year absence streak last year), but I've been 'asked' to cover for an important client the same week, and will instead be in Abu Dhabi...guess I can bone up on Chap F rules...

Oh well...maybe next year!
