These coordinates are in Hopedale in the Boston, Massachusetts graticule on 2008-05-24. They are in somebody's house so they will certainly not be reached exactly, but perhaps they can expect some odd passers-by. Nearby points of interest (and fallback locations if a large group shows up) include a baseball field and a cemetery.

The event

This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: huge success. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.


If you have pictures, either upload them here or link them on this page. Glench's Photos.

We're looking forward to more weekends in weirder places! Next time, we'll bring more food and more games. Also, if there are open spaces, kites. [Kites!! -j]

Nearby food includes Oregano Pizzaria, which sounds delicious right now.

The nearest MBTA commuter rail station is Forge Park, 8.2 miles away via Route 140. The Franklin line would accommodate arriving on train 1709 (Departs South Station at 1:20pm, EDT) and leaving on train 1714 (Departs Forge Park at 6:35pm, EDT) or 1716 (Departs Forge Park at 8:35pm, EDT).

User:Xkcd and chess set will be there.

User:Moku and goban will be there. Will also be taking the 1709 and biking.

Pinecone got three ride offers, so he and card games will be there.

Brad is like, so there.

User:Spot and his wife will be there, with various games.

Nick would like to be there. Is anyone interested in cycling from the commuter rail station?

Brian and Boggle are going to do the commuter train -> bike thing to be there. Nick, I'll be on the recommended 1709.

Jose missed the 1709. But will be on the next one, arr. at Forge Park at 4:20. Anyone else taking that one?

Merc will be there next week, and is sorry he couldn't make it. But he will also bring games and friends next time!
