COME TO MEET THE PUBLISHERS,
STAY FOR THE BUS TO RENO!
Hey there folks!
If you went to the GAMA Trade Show last year in Reno, you missed one of the best-run and attended GTS shows in ages! (And if you didn't go, you totally should, it's worth every penny!) The only real complaint from attendees and exhibitors alike was the much higher cost of flights into Reno, when compared to Vegas of years past. Then it hit me: the Golden warehouse is a short 4-hour drive from Reno....and flights into San Francisco and San Jose are usually considerably cheaper than connecting into Reno....
LET US DO THE DRIVING FOR YOU!
Thus was born the First Annual Golden Open House & Party Bus Tour! We would like to invite YOU out to have some fun with us, and if you're heading to the GAMA Trade Show, jump on one of the charter busses we've hired to take us all there and back again! Right in the middle of it all is an all-day Saturday warehouse sale, wherein we offer you the most amazing screaming deals the likes of which....well, you'll just have to attend to find out!
Here are the important details:
**CONFORMED SPONSORS: **
Green Ronin Publishing!
Micro Art Studios!
Steve Jackson Games!
Secret Weapon Miniatures!
More added daily!!
WHEN: March 8 - 10, 2019 (yup, the weekend immediately before the GAMA Trade Show)
WHERE: Biltmore Hotel, Santa Clara California (Rooms are $109/night!)
CLICK HERE TO RESERVE YOUR ROOMS!!
WHAT: Friday - early arrivals gather at the Biltmore and play
Saturday: 9am - 3pmish Epic Warehouse Sale at Golden Prime - come for the deals, stay for the hot dogs!
Saturday Night: more game play and hanging out with manufacturer's reps all night long, with a big BBQ blowout!
Sunday: 11AM departure for the Peppermill Resort in Reno, arrive about 5PM
Friday, March 15: 11AM departure from the Peppermill Resort, return to the Biltmore at roughly 5pm
I figured since we're all about to head to Reno for a week of seminars, panels and meetings, we'd skip all that and just have a big ol' party! We will be renting two ballrooms and the patio at the Biltmore Saturday, and each manufacturer in attendance will have their own round table to run demos, show off stuff and just chat! That's it, nothing more - no long-winded speeches, no dull listed events, just sales and gaming - and then a relaxing bus ride over the Sierra Nevada Range in smooth comfort!
HOLY COW!! HOW DO I GET IN ON THIS?!
Well first, you need to make sure you know The Rules (because of course restrictions apply!)
1. We will cap the store attendance at 44 STORES, two attendees per store! (Why? Because, after exhibitors and staff, we'll have 88 seats left on the busses!) First come, first signed up!
2. To GET ON THE BUS, you MUST be a current member of GAMA, and signed up to attend the GAMA Trade Show the following week - and yes, we'll check the list! (To sign up and get GTS info, visit www.gama.org) ALL CUSTOMERS are welcome at the warehouse sale on Saturday!
3. You MUST be a current Golden customer in good standing, and have placed a Golden order of at least $350USD within the recent past!
4. You'll want to check into flights into either San Francisco (SFO, about 35 miles north of the hotel) or San Jose (SJC, literally right next door to the warehouse), and try to arrive Friday March 8th and leave either late on Friday March 15th or later
5. We'll need to know your t-shirt size, as we'll be printing shirts with this logo on the front and the sponsor logos on the back - and I sure hope we all wear them triumphantly into the Peppermill, like a horde of tourists!
6. There is NO COST TO YOU to attend the Golden Open House & Party Bus, or the Epic Warehouse Sale! The only cost you'll have are rooms at the Biltmore for Friday and Saturday, and with all the money you save not flying into RNO, you may even come out ahead!
7. While the 56-seat coaches could, in fact, be filled with raucous partiers, we will require everyone to be on their best behavior on the ride over and back, so no drinking or shenanigans on the busses! (Not like that ought to be an issue at 11AM, but it still needs said to keep the lawyers happy.) Plenty of time for road trip gaming!
WHAT ABOUT THIS WAREHOUSE SALE?
ALL GOLDEN CUSTOMERS, old and new, are welcome to come to Golden Prime on Saturday, 9 March, for an Epic Warehouse Sale! We'll drag all manner of product out into the light, priced to move with massive markdowns! The manufacturer reps will also be there, with smoking deals of their own, available to discuss their products and help you figure out what you need, right there in our stacks! One of our crack team of warehouse pros will accompany you on your journey through our stacks, and build/pack/process your order on the spot - or carry it home with you same day!
FANTASTIC! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?
That's the easiest part of this entire process - just drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me you're in! I'll hold you to it, so please don't jump on two seats if you're maybe not gonna use them, because I believe every seat will be filled with a waiting list!
Any questions - and I'm certain there will be! - let me know!
