I see parking for attendees is $10-$15 a day. Do game bringers get a break on parking? What about trailers?

Bobbi and Steve will be sending out a map of sorts that will show the direction to the loading docks and the trailer parking location.  They have an area in the furthest part of the lot designated for such events as ours that require large vehicles.

As for parking fees if you have a reservation at either of the hotels on property, it is free!  Otherwise parking is $10 for the day or you can pay $15 for unlimited entry.  Parking is done by a third party company so negotiation about parking fees did not go far at all with RP Funding Center.  The good news is the fees here are better than in shows past!

WOW!  You guys killed it!  THANK YOU ALL for the game donations!!!  We are so humbled by the generosity of this amazing collector community!! THANK YOU for being the best collector community on the planet!!  If anyone else has a game submission please send it in, we will find a spot on the floor for sure!!  Looking forward to seeing all of you and please come up and say 'hello' to all of the FPF staff. 


BTW.....GREAT NEWS for all the donors.......you will have FREE PARKING!  If you come after 4pm Friday, you should be on a master list at the parking gate, just give them your name and you should have access.  If for some reason there is a mess-up(it happens) pay and come to the front desk for reimbursement.  IF you are at one of the two hotels next to the venue, your parking at the hotels are free anyways so we will use them other special guests. 

If any of you have any questions, reach out to Bobbi/Steve, keep checking your emails for load-in/load-out info, maps, dock info etc. 

Thank you VILLAGE!!  You guys kick much ass!!

Before that time you let them know you're with Free Play and that should be it.

Thanks to my fellow game bringers for a great show! If you didn't bring a game this year for whatever reason, you should consider it for next time!

Venue is great, show layout was fun, entertainment at the parties was the best yet with live bands and a dj who played music thatcmost people can relate to.

Damn, another great show in the books!
Main and Tourney area were busy, but comfortable. Can’t wait for next year!

Thank you to all the volunteers that made this happen!
