Cosplaying to any degree is encouraged but not necessary~ (If you decide to cosplay, please tell me somehow what character you plan on cosplaying as because I am making little character flags)
DATE: October. 29, 2010
LOCATION: Bascom Hill
TIME: 4:30pm - it's never ending, Hetalia Day every day.
DATE: Oct. 29th because this date seems to work the best for most.
PLACE: It will be chilly~~ Dress appropriately! (I don't want anyone getting sick/cold/die from hypothermia)
Bascom: At the top of Bascom hill, by the statue of Abe Lincoln (MAP: http://i52.tinypic.com/oq9ci0.jpg) It's not a park per se but there's a lot of grass, and a lovely view of the Capitol and State St. It's also pretty much in the center of Madison.
PARKING: For those driving, parking downtown can be hell but there is a parking lot on University Ave that is free on weekdays after 4:30pm and on weekends. You can also try to find a closer spot by creeping the residential streets. There's quite a few metered parking places too.
I've made a map of all the parking places I know of in the vicinity: http://i52.tinypic.com/2a9ck0h.jpg
Lot 20 is the one that is free after 4:30 on weekdays and all day on weekends (except on game days). I've drawn a route (in red) you can take to walk to Bascom if you decide to park there. The thin blue lines are for the other parking lots (which are metered on weekdays).
WHAT WE MIGHT DO: Play Soviet Union (a spin-off on Mafia), Human Knot, Apples to Apples, Charades
Suggestions for activities are welcomed! It's the day before Freakfest, so go crazy! :D and come to Freakfest on Saturday night! It's like a costume orgy on State St.
