Opticraft 2018 Convention!
« on: December 08, 2017, 02:46:44 am »
Opticraft Convention
Chicago Illinois - September 7-9 2018


Hello Opticrafters! We have noticed that there will be a Minecraft Community Event held by Minefaire in Chicago next year. A few members of our community have already expressed interest in going, and we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to hold the first Opticraft get together!

More information on ticket sales, other locations, etc can be found here: http://www.minefaire.com

These members have signed up:

Details -

Location:
This is presumed to be held at the Schaumburg Convention Center 30 minutes outside of downtown.


Airport:
O'hare International Airport is your best option if you are flying in.


Where to stay:
We recommend these hotels so we can all be in a close radius around the Convention center, which is North West of where Interstate 90 and Interstate 290 intersect.

  ♦  Wyndham Garden Schaumburg Chicago Northwest
  ♦  Embassy Suites Chicago - Schaumburg - Woodfield
  ♦  Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel (This is where the event will be held)
  ♦  Residence Inn by Marriott
  ♦  SpringHill Suites by Marriott
  ♦  Hyatt Place Chicago/Schaumburg

If you're also wanting to check out Chicago, you can get a hotel in the city, however, Schaumburg is only 30 minutes out. The hotels within the city will most likely be more expensive as well.


Local transportation:
Lyft and uber will most likely be the most economic option and allows you to share rides to split the costs.


Money:
If money is an issue for you, you may consider buddying up with someone or a group to split a hotel room, however, please be aware that you haven't met most of the members of our community in person, so proceed with caution. This isn't like the server, and those of us who staff our community will not be responsible for you.


A brief itinerary
We plan to meet up as a group on Saturday the 8th around noon to check out this event.
This will be updated the closer we get, and is subject to change.
