If I go with my family (one wife, one 3-year old and one me) in one room, but only I am playing board games, is that possible?
Title: BGC Boardgame Retreat 2015
Post by: jack208 on September 22, 2015, 09:25:10 am

Dzof, yes you may. However pls note the following


 


If you wish to spend some quality time with your family here, we would also suggest you extend your stay to Monday etc. That's probably what me & waiyan might be doing (ie we stay for an extra night and leave on Monday)

If Baby Rachel is going, is she hosting a separate mini retreat where our kids can come play Haba games?  [party] 


 


Title: BGC Boardgame Retreat 2015
Post by: jack208 on September 22, 2015, 12:02:36 pm

At the moment, she's in "internship" and observing how the adults run the Retreat. Perhaps in a few years, she can start to host the mini retreat. haha

Yes, that is a good idea.


What we will do is that I will be by myself on Saturday night and then the family will stay together on Sunday night.


Can you pass me the contact for the hotel please?

Hi everyone, since we are almost selling out the 24 slots, let's move towards confirming the seats. Some admin stuff to take care of.


  1. If you have not selected your t-shirt size, pls do so from the size chart guide above (in first post).

  2.    
  3. Confirm your seat by banking in the Retreat fee (full) to our CIMB bank acct (details also in first post), and forward us here or via FB message or whatsapp your transfer/deposit receipt.

  4.    
  5. This year we are trying something new; allowing you to choose which new game we can get for you from Essen to be the lucky draw prize (remember everyone gets a shot to claim the lucky draw prize at the end of Day Two) so your call? To add your game of choice or to cast your vote, pls go to this thread http://community.boardgamecafe.net/index.php?/topic/4460-bgc-retreat-2015-vote-for-lucky-draw-game/

Remember your payment needs to be in by end of this week 27/9 in order for seat to be confirmed else we'll release it on Monday to those in the waitlist. No exceptions as we'll be leaving for Germany/Essen on 30/9 Wed evening and do not want to be following up on payment details while we are in Germany.


 


Note: If you choose not to cast your vote and prefer to give us donations, that's very fine with us too.  :whistle3:

Dzof, I've kept a seat for you as requested by Ghaz. So ya, you are on.


 


Your wife coming up by herself on Sunday? Or travelling up together with you on Sat? There's swimming pool, beach, etc so it's a nice place for her & kiddo to chill out while daddy's frantically pushing worker placement in function room.

Hi all, thanks for your support in closing the slots in less than 2 days!! Anyone still wishing to come onboard can still be added to the Waitlist...


 


1. If we are able to add more tables (and room), we may take in more (not very likely for this venue)


 


2. If anyone on the list above did not come thru with their payment by 27/9, we'll release their slot

Can put me on the wait list?
Title: BGC Boardgame Retreat 2015
Post by: jack208 on September 23, 2015, 08:38:21 pm

Sure, Noddyz. Can I know your real name? :P


 




Hi,

Can put me on the wait list?




For those on the Wait List, we are waiting to confirm with Kabin if we are able to host 7 tables - if yes, we'll be able to accommodate 4 more even if no one drops out from the Confirmed List.

Post by: dzof on September 24, 2015, 09:22:56 am

Paid by Maybank2U, sent details by message to jack208 (hope this was the right thing to do).


 


I am going alone on Saturday, and the family is joining up on Sunday and we are all staying overnight until Monday.


 


My 3-year old daughter will probably bring Animal Upon Animal and Catan Junior. She will probably be happy to play it with anyone, as long as they understand that there may be some house rules imposed mid-game by her...

Can put my name in waiting list in case someone pull out?


 


Or maybe you can consider to open another table since there are a few people in the waitlist? (just suggestion  :D)


Title: BGC Boardgame Retreat 2015
Post by: jack208 on November 06, 2015, 05:01:33 am

Alrite this is getting near... but sabar, still have 6 weeks to go! [snail]


 


Thought I shout here to say we should be starting to look at t-shirt design. Waiyan?


 


Cham, your name is in the waitlist... only problem is you need someone to pull out. [crying]


 


As to opening another table, the gaming room for this venue is rather small compared to others so we think six tables good enough and not want to cramp more.

Post by: Hayen on November 11, 2015, 07:37:02 am

Just came back from 1 night stay at The Kabin. I think you guys are gonna have a great time!


Title: BGC Boardgame Retreat 2015
Post by: Azrul on November 13, 2015, 06:06:33 pm

May I suggest for dinner at Aroma Ikan Bakar, just few minutes from Kabin and one of best seafood place there. The price is also reasonable compared to other places. Just search for Aroma Ikan Bakar using waze.


As for breakfirst on Monday for those who decided to stay and experience northern klang valley air, a simple drive towards Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor will offer you big choices of eatery of which I'll say the best places for brekkie. Google or search thru Tripod will probably make you drooling until you go there. Even here there are also places for some seafood repeat after Aroma.


And lastly, go experienced fireflies watching (for those stay until Monday) if you haven't tried it yet. Have fun all and welcome to Kuala Selangor. This will be the nearest retreat ever happened which is really close to me, but still I can't join. Really sad.

If you have not received my invitation yet - probably becoz we are not in each other's Friend list, then pls send me a Facebook Friend invite to jack208@yahoo.com and I'll loop you in.

The boards are modular (two-sided).
