RSVP ON FACEBOOK IF YOU’RE *POSITIVE* THAT YOU WILL ATTEND!
Saturday, December 29, 2012 from 11:00 P.M. until 4:00 A.M. Please note that this is an overnight event!
A lock-in at Laser Rock/The Edge in Belleville, IL. $25.50 covers pizza, unlimited soda, unlimited laser tag, and unlimited arcade games! There’s a $950 minimum charge, which means that we need at least 37 people to make this work! I had to cancel it last time due to a lack of interest.
This is also an overnight event, so be sure that you’ll be able to drive yourself home, or have a place to stay.
WHAT HAPPENS AT 4:00 A.M.?
The employees of The Edge want to go home and sleep, so the venue WILL CLOSE once our event is over. I will personally stick around until everybody’s been picked up, made any phonecalls, and is safely on their way back to wherever they’re going, so don’t worry about that. ♥
Once it hits about 4:30, anyone else who still is waiting for a ride or just wants to hang out longer can come with me to the nearby Denny’s — which is only a mile away and is, of course, open 24 hours. Anyone who needs to call their parents at that point can use my phone if they don’t have one.
WHAT ABOUT MY STUFF?
If you’re worried about your possessions, don’t be (not too much, anyway)! At midnight, the entire venue will be completely ours. You can leave your bags, coats, etc. on the benches and chairs in their dining area. The only people there will be our group and the employees. As always, there’s unfortunately no absolute guarantee that someone won’t take something that’s yours, so please leave valuables at home if at all possible.
CLEAR THIS WITH YOUR PARENTS
Don’t reply that you’re attending until you’ve gotten permission to attend. If your parents are concerned, they are welcome to get in touch with me. Please email me if you need me to assure them that we’re an okay bunch.
COSPLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK
Keep in mind that this is a laser tag arena. Absolutely no troll paint will be permitted. We cannot risk getting paint all over the laser tag equipment or arcade games. You need to be able to get the vests over your head, so if you want to wear horns, understand that they may get snagged on things. We will be the only people at the arena, though, so you don’t need to worry about looking weird—except on the ride there and back!
We will be collecting non-perishable goods for the Collinsville Area Food Pantry, including personal hygiene items. Some things to focus on are soap, soup, and spaghetti: these items are always in demand. Any sort of canned or dry pasta; any sort of chili, soup, or stew; personal hygiene items including feminine products, diapers, toilet paper, etc.
