Tad & Craig’s Excellent Party 8:
The Adventures of Craig & Tad in the Eighth Dimension

Labor Day Weekend, August 31 – September 3, 2001
Dulles Airport Days Inn in Herndon, Virginia

A fun Relaxacon with loads of gaming!

Price is $30 per person for the entire weekend, or $20 per person for Saturday only.
Hotel rooms are $69 per night, quad occupancy.


This year’s entertainment will include …

  • Games:
    Bring any game and you will find opponents wishing to play it. Additionally there will be an INWO® tournament, a Scrabble® tournament and our traditional late night poker tournament; all with prizes to be won.
  • Friday Dinner:
    This year there will be two organized dinners: one for people who like Sushi, and one for people who like to eat real food. The Sushi eaters will be led to Hama Sushi by Tad, and Craig will be leading an expedition to The American Cafe for everyone else.
  • Saturday Picnic:
    This year we’re experimenting with a Bring Your Own Food picnic. We’ll supply condiments, a poolside picnic area, plates, napkins, and lemonade. You bring some that you’d like to eat for dinner.
  • Sunday Ice Cream Social:
    This year the Ice Cream Social will be held at Custard Gourmet (next to the Shoppers Food Warehouse at the Bavarian Tudor Horror plaza). They have Very Good frozen custard (ie: *real* soft serve ice cream).
  • Con Suite:
    As usual, we’ll have several bread makers in the Con Suite churning out fresh bread on a regular basis, as well as other yummie treats.
  • Gaming Area:
    The gaming room will be open from 5pm Friday until 2pm Monday, and Grayhawk and Stu will be organizing tournaments and game demos throughout the weekend.
  • Amenities:
    The hotel has a heated indoor pool, an indoor Jacuzzi and a small exercise room. Additionally, each room has a coffee maker in it. The convention program book will provide you with a restaurant guide.
