OK so my work decided to put me on some random trial program starting next week. An odd by-product of the change is that I have weekends off for all of December and thus can attend NEC9.
I’d prefer to leave Friday morning/afternoon and get into Philly for the night of casuals. The team and singles tournaments for all the major games are on Saturday. We’d stay overnight Saturday and leave Sunday morning.
Car Rental (Minivan):
$60 x 3 (Friday - Sunday) / 6 = $30
$60 x 3 (Friday - Sunday) / 7 = $26
Car Kilometres (We get 600km free)
(1600 - 600) *.15 / 6 = $25
(1600 - 600) *.15 / 7 = $22
Gas (We’ll say 3 tanks total)
3 * $80 / 6 = $40
3 * $80 / 7 = $35
Hotel (1 room w/ two double beds)
$80 / 6 = $13
$80 / 7 = $11
$20 Site Fee
With 6 people you’d be spending $128 before entering a tournament or eating.
With 7 people you’d be spending $114 before entering a tournament or eating.
Basically you’re looking at a less than $200USD for the whole deal. If you have a genuine interest in going then please post up and it can be discussed. I’ll be honest in saying this is on a whim and if it doesn’t pan out I could care less either way. I would like to go as I’ve never been to NEC and it’d be good to see the Montreal guys again (they’re going 100%).
