BCBcon International 2011: Boston, 7–10 July?
But I have to agree, went to a see the Braves once, not my thing. I wouldn't go.

I don't like baseball. I don't know how it works. But I know of Fenway Park, and I know of the Red Sox, and it seems like a good "Boston" thing to do.
Of course, if time is limited and people like mouse have ten other things that are better to do, let's do that. But if the alternative to going to a Red Sox game together is "i dunno go to mcdonalds maybe check out the gamestop" then fuck that, you're all going.

I see your point though. I guess if it comes to either sitting in the hotel room or actually doing something vacationy.
But we should all go drunk.
Just a suggestion.

And who better to do it with than a bunch of furries and people I've never met before. A closer knit family, I've never heard of.

i wouldn't say there's a problem with the group splitting up - i was planning on having the older people 21+ going all together to a bar to drink at some point. i don't think we should force anyone to do any activity - if people want to do something else instead (like go to fanuel hall or something), then they should be able to.

If I don't get a list I will submit a formal complaint to the BCB Con Planning Committee and it will have very strong language.
Also: Should I get a Fake ID even though I don't plan on drinking?

If the dates of July 8-11 hold then you can put me down as going. Do you know when you will confirm the dates so that I can buy the plane tickets?
One of the drawbacks to it being in Boston is that I will have to fly there so I won't be able to help out on the rooms like I had wanted to.

Found a bar/restaurant called The Black Rose that looks interesting.
I personally to want visit Bunker Hill though. That would be cool.

We need to go to Georges Island. There's a ghost there.
And I want to catch her.

We can all tame deers, sneak them back to Boston, then ride them about the city. Also on the boat rides we could all sing a 40-Part Harmony of "I'm On a Boat", oh the possibilities.

BUT there is hope, I might be able to talk my bro into coming with me. This will help me out on transportation and "protection" as my parents will insist on. It would probably be better to change me to the possibly probable list with everyone. I'll see what kind of magic I can work.

I bet the MIT Museum is WAY cooler.

it's honestly kind of small and underwhelming.

So mom! Since your reading this and I know you are because I know you googled "BCBcon" after I told you the name, consider the fact that I'm fucking 18 and that holding me back this year will not prevent me from going to any future one's. Seriously I'll be fine.

I bet it's a pain in the ass to convince her that you can handle yourself... but please do appreciate the fact that she cares. God knows, I've got a parent who just fucked off and forgot about me. (fortunately my mother does care).
No offence at all - you're a cool guy and I like talking with you. Just please remember that a parent's love is one of the best things ever.
(I should really not post here because you all know I can't go)

Haha I told my dad about this when it was still iffy and he was instantly cool with it, especially since I'll be bringing the boyfriend along. Weeks go by and....
I finally get around to telling my mom who goes into mom mode of WHAT IF THEY RAPE YOU?! Haha, but after talking more and explaining stuff she's pretty okay with it as well.

Nothing would be stopping them Mikanda, but many people can only do this once in a while (Tae lives in Australia for example).

I like the idea of museums, whatever, sounds neat. Are these dates good, then? The only thing that might change them is if I discover it's massively useful to someone for it to be a few days earlier or later, or if hotel prices are significantly different depending on the days.
There was some person who would prefer it to be Thur-Sun or something and I told them to post in this thread, but they didn't.
Edit: Oh, that was closetlucy. Well, sounds like he might not be coming. But if we were to change the dates, what do you think? The point of picking Fri-Mon means that those of you with school or work can be there 3 out of the 4 days, if you're able to get one off, and getting a longer weekend is probably easier than arbitrary other days??
