My name is Matt Mitchell (MattMitchell45 on the Discord) and I am heading to PAX East this Thursday (as I do every year). One positive aspect of conventions like this the chance for community members to get a chance to meet each other in the #meatspace. For a community as supportive and amazing and pleasant to interact with online as Waypoint, this is very exciting and could just happen randomly as we pass each other in the convention halls. But with a Waypoint Radio panel stacked like so many loaded nachos, there is at least a guaranteed 45-90 mins Saturday evening where 100s of us Gamers Ready to Rise Up will be packed in together in line.
That being said, I would love to have a forum space for folks attending PAX to introduce themselves, talk about events/games they plan to see, ask questions, and possible recruit some new friends to demo something. More ambitiously, I would love to try schedule a Waypoint member meet up for drinks, dinner, chit-chat, tabletop, etc. After the Saturday panel would probably be the easiest time to do so, but I will try to support any meet up plan that works. I knew I have personally benefited from getting to know fellow wonderful Waypoint fans and I’m sure you will too. Regardless, here is a space to chat and coordinate and I look forward to getting to meet some of you this weekend.
