Pre-Pre-Pre-DSR Squared Housing Logistics

i know it's still pretty early, but i want to make sure that people start thinking about housing logistics of DSR Squared. (for those that forget, this is occuring on June 14-15th.) There are a few aspects of the whole thing that need to be covered:

one: this is ramping up to be pretty big - there's already about fifty people that are planning on coming and i don't have a good sense of how that will fluctuate up or down. I'm assuming that because this is a two-day event that even people from corvallis/portland who are a part of or want to hang out for both days would prefer to stay in town as opposed to do a commute.

two: It's highly probable (the next month or so will confirm this) that the tournament will no longer be held at Tyler's dad's house but in the garage of the place where Tyler will be moving to. This will create less space for people to crash unless we get a clear from Tyler's dad that we can still use the house for accomodations, which i would prefer not to do.

three: There is a lot happening in Eugene around this time. Not only is the UofO commencement occuring that Saturday, but Eugene is also hosting the 2008 track and field olympic trials a week after the tournament (it's fortunate we didn't schedule the tournament in the middle of this because i didn't know about it at all when we were thinking about dates). I know most people wouldn't want to stay in a hotel in the first place, but given the potential "bleed" of hotel demand surrounding the olympic trials and commencement, it's conceivable that a hotel would not merely be "an undesirable option" but rather "not possible at all".

All of these things make me a little worried about where to put everyone, so the sooner i can get it into people's heads to think about this and to commit to housing people, the better. If you have a potential housing location either your own or through a parent's house or something (pokes omgwtfbbqdxy and toastercookie), it would be awesome if you could help out. I want to be able to get an idea of how many spots we have for people by mid-march/april so that if we have any issues, we have time to sort it out.

Lainii and I have a bit of living room floor and couch space (pending roommate's permission)

I have room for 2 people in my room too. Dunno about Lainii though, I'll leave it up to her.

I'm still not sure if I can even make it to the tourney -- my last day of finals is the 13th and I'm not sure if i'll be travelling back to Eugene on friday or saturday. I'd like to be able to make it so I'll see what I can convince my parents of since they're going to have to drive me and all my shit, but if all of this works out I'll be able to host people definitely on saturday night, and maybe on friday night.

So far from our group down here, it's pretty much confirmed that Ken, John, Emily, my brother Mike, Igene, a co-worker of mine, and myself will be coming up. We'll need housing for the 13th-15th. (Obviously doesn't have to be in the same place, but maybe at least my brother and co-worker so that they're not with people they don't know at all).

It occurs to me that I don't know if I ever even RSVPed in the first place.

Well I would definitely like to participate, just in case I never said so.

On topic of your post, though, I don't think I can host anyone, my place is pretty small as it is.

I haven't talked to my mom, but I'm confident she'd let people crash at her place. There's easily enough room there for several people.

edit: I just called, she's fine with the idea.

Hmm, well my roommates are super chill about having people over. So I could probably have 5 people over (they'd likely be occupying floor space in my room and the couch upstairs), maybe more if there's demand (they'd have to take the living room floor).

when i set up the housing chart, i'll specify that people at your place need to be approved by you.
