BorderCon 2012 - Who is going?

Post by TaleSpinner » Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:51 pm

Alright, I'm going and would appreciate getting a lift and/or sharing a room.

Who else is going?

Julian and I will be going-- I'll be arranging one of those family rooms, so that could be a go?

Yeap, that sounds perfect. Count me in if possible.

I'll ask Julian if I can catch a lift with him.

There really is no leeway for that, as people may need to get their games to a willing 'games mule' attending BorderCon.

Packing tips:
- Make sure the game contents are secure insidethe game and won't shift around.
- Place the game in a plastic bag to prevent water damage (in the event it is left out in the rain).
- Make sure there's cushioning around all side of the game.
- Use a proper box. (Auspost "ToughBags" won't prevent crushing.)
- Make sure the box is properly taped up.
- Make sure the address is clear and won't get torn off.

:smt071 This trade is open to Australian BGGers only.

:smt071 This trade is open to board games, expansions, card games, game accessories, RPG, video games and the like. Please don't add anything else. If you intend to allow a game to be exchanged for cash (i.e. you're selling), please include the amount you will accept for it in the price. You may consider compare current market prices (ebay, BGG, local shop)

:smt071 In ALL cases, SENDER PAYS SHIPPING. Even if you're selling a game for cash, SENDER PAYS SHIPPING. Even to Perth or Townsville or Hobart. So, make sure you set your price high enough that you would be happy to pay shipping to anywhere else in Australia out of that money.

:smt071 Consider the Australian Post option of flat-rate box previously suggested. More details here.

I now have a job & hence a spare seat in the car (& if you need a lift I'll explain the causality of that, which should pass a boring 4-5 minutes of the journey).

If anyone needs a lift, the intention is to leave Nunawading Station Friday around 3pm & get to Albury 6:30-7pm. I'll have the full trailer, so luggage space is limited to the back of the car (Imprezza hatch, shared between 4 of us) so mules or those with a huge number of games to take might not be able to fit.

Intention is to leave around noon-2pm on Monday.

Cheers
J

Hi,

I'm driving up on the Friday with Wife and Daughter. Should be a little leftover space for some Mule work for the Maths Trade if anyone needs a hand with that as Julian is space limited.

David,

I'm happy to take up your offer. I'd like to attend myself but am unfortunately having teenager trouble at the moment which will prevent it.

Regards - Phil
