When and where exactly is this thing held every year? It would be nice to try and get it on my calendar so I can be prepared to make travel arrangements.

The "Excelsior Ball" has not been held at the same location each year.  "EB3" will be held in Los Angeles from Friday 6 June to Sunday 8 June, 2008 (pending hotel selection).  Once we have received all information from the candidate hotels (regarding pricing and availability), a selection will be made and announced here.  The current plan is to hold the event at an airport-area (LAX) hotel.

And Andrew, perhaps we should mention to everyone to hold off making any concrete plans for anything until you release a formal schedule and information, becuase there MAY (or maybe not!) be other unofficial events before and after the stated dates that people might want to also plan for.

(Plus, did I hear correctly that Beo has a great new recipe for a pork CHOP that he wants to invite us all over to the house to taste?? Perhaps I got that wrong a bit, but it's stuff like that you want to know about before buying any airline tickets or quitting your job! )

*sigh* Somehow I knew I was doing something wrong by suggesting that weekend, because I just found out I have to be in Fontana that weekend...figures.

You're partly right, Rick. It was roast otter.......

I think Mr. Otter and Intrepid's Funny Bunny need to get together to teach these producers some manners.  Hopefully they can both make an appearance at EB3 so that their adoring fans can give them the respect they deserve.

And back on topic....  I really hope some of the Intrepid folks can make it to EB3.  Last year, meeting Michael and Alex was a definite highlight of my trip to Irvine.. especially watching the special sneak preview viewing of Heavy Lies the Crown you prepared for everyone there.  (Note: Seeing Michael scrambling nervously for his knickers made us all laugh!  What!?!  That statement  is 100% true... I'll leave it to Michael to sort it out with his pals back home). 

Anyway, although EB3 is HF/Ody/HC focused, it should also have Orphans as part of it, and there is definite interest in our other fanfilm families, especially Intrepid, so I hope it will be possible somehow to get some of you there.

Rick

  (P.S. I have some FedExpress international airbills... do you have any large cardboard boxes big enough for say, one or two humans?)

:D Very kind, it was great to meet you and the rest of the gang (and Alex).

(Note: Seeing Michael scrambling nervously for his knickers made us all laugh!  What!?!  That statement  is 100% true... I'll leave it to Michael to sort it out with his pals back home). 

:shock: Thanks Rick, most kind to bring that up.  True though.

(Although to clarify, it wasn't knickers, it was pants (UK version))

Please Rick, remember that you only add the 's' when there's more than one.  [grin]

I'm going to book the time off work and if the exchange rate stays favourable, may well join you again.

1.00 GBP = 2.07724 USD

I'd say that's pretty favorable.  You're buying the drinks!

I have a few questions, now that the question of my attendance has moved from "Not f***ing happening" to "Hmm, there's a good chance".

As mentioned before, I will be working an event at California Speedway in Fontana on the weekend in question - probably leaving Poway on Thursday, June 5 (which, by a strange and unforeseen coincidence, is my 21st birthday), and possibly getting Friday the 6th all to myself, as it were. There is the possibility that Jim will be accompanying me to this event, and things will run relatively smoothly - that is, if the drivers keep all four on the pavement and not crash into the walls, each other, etc...and if the damn competition committee wakes up and realizes I'm here to stay (long story) - so that would give us time, if not to actually enjoy the days' festivities, to at least drop by.

Now to my questions:

1)Does anyone know where California Speedway is (I do, but I'm asking if anyone else does), and if so, how far is it from LAX?
2)What route would we take? The straightest route to Los Angeles from Fontana - at least according to the road signs - is Interstate 10, but I'm wondering if there are any other ways.
3)Can I have the otter's liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti? *vile slurping noise*
4)Is Andrew gonna regale us with his obvious possession by the late Mr. Dangerfield, who even in someone else's body can't get no respect routine from last time?

I just did a check on a map site, Joshua.  The ONLY route from LAX to Fontana is I-10, and that way is just under 70 miles.  If you want to miss downtown LA, you're adding a whole bunch of mileage and time to get from the airport to Fontana.

It is indeed but it has to stay favourable for a while longer. :)

Sure, but be sure to avoid the really sharp teeth and razor-sharp claws on your way to get it....

I make a motion that any discussion of disemboweling Mr. Otter is automatically on-topic.

Failing that, perhaps it could be one of the EB3 panel discussions?  (Thus bringing it back on topic.)

I'm all for option #2!

I already made a "reservation" at work for June, will be able to book that time off as soon as 2 of my colleagues return from vacation.
Then it will be a question of money, but I'm confident I'll make it this time. :)
