Capitol Steam invades the Hackley & Hume Historic Sites and Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party

Come join Brian & Cindy Scull in a guided tour through the beautiful, Victorian Hackley & Hume homes http://www.lakeshoremuseum.org/project/hackley-hume/, the Fire Barn, and Depression Era Scolnik house, in historic downtown Muskegon. Engage in Parasol Dueling, or play croquet and other yard games out on the front lawn. There are other Victorian Era homes and buildings in the immediate area, so be sure to bring your cameras!
Steampunk or old timey attire is preferred but not mandatory.

After our tour we will have the option of having a group photo taken in front of the Muskegon Union Train Station http://www.detroit1701.org/Muskegon%20Union%20Station.html or proceeding down the block to the Muskegon Woman’s Club for Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party! http://www.muskegonwomansclub.org/historic-building.html Tea and homemade goodies will be provided.

Admission to the Historic Sites is $7 per person, or if we have 20 or more people we will receive the group rate of $5, while children under 12 are free. The Fire Barn, Scolnik House, and the Lakeshore Museum Center are free. Please e-mail Cindy at [email protected] if you will be attending, by September 27, 2015 so that the Historic sites can have sufficient staff on hand to guide us.
Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party is free, but because of the size of the Tea Room in the Woman’s Club will be limited to the first 40 people who RSVP to Cindy at [email protected] before September 27th. The Tea Party will begin at 3PM, and there will be Tea Dueling! So start practicing now.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dBrcwCQkg1Q

Secret Con

The first rule of Secret Con is that there is no Secret Con. Spies in the area have heard rumors of a comics and gaming convention coming to the Flint MI area, but have denied it’s existence for years. Now the rumors might actually prove to be true. Comics, art, books, gaming, and reputed guests well worth the price of admission. More details IF and when they become available. Remember, DON’T tell your friends, deny all rumors of any Secret Con, and remember to forget you were here at all!

CARPS October Event 2015 (Blood Moon & ChiliFest)

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics

We currently hold weekend-long events (Friday night through Sunday afternoon) 6-8 times per year at campgrounds such as Brighton State Recreation Area, Bald Mountain Recreation Area, Camp Talahi and Camp Kiwanis.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)
