PostSubject: Haven Vans to Rag!   Sat Jan 23, 2010 11:50 pm

Those of us in Rolla have been discussing the possibility of renting a bus/van to Rag to cut down on the cost of transportation. There are a number of busses/vans that will pass through the midwest as well. Dominion will probably have a bus (which is probably already full) and Kurai is organizing a bus ride as well. To make it easier for Haven to ride together I've looked into renting a bus. The bus option is currently not going to work out. However, I've looked a little bit into van rentals for the week of Rag and prospects are looking very nice (anywhere from $30-50 per person). I have not figured in gas yet.

So far I've only checked Enterprise from Kansas City. The biggest vehicle they rent is a 15 seat van. There wasn't a price quote for it on their website, but I will be calling them for more information. With the number of people Haven would be transporting (the rough estimate is 20) we would need to rent an additional van for all our gear. If someone cannot stay the whole week, they may need to find alternate transportation as the vans would not leave till sunday June 20. I'm not entirely sure how we'll be picking everyone up from Kansas City, but the idea is for people to get themselves to I-70 and we can probably pick you up from there. Keep in mind we can't run all over the country picking people up.

My dad has already agreed to driving a van, so we would need one more (preferably 25 or older) to drive a cargo van. I'll look into it more over the next few weeks.

As a reminder:
-Rag entrance fee is $50 pre-reg, $55 at troll.
-$80-100 for food (we may pool funds for group groceries)
-$50 emergency funds CASH
-If you're 16-18 you MUST have a legal guardian present AT Rag to fight.

After some discussion with fellow Haveners, a better option may be simply carpooling.

At around $150 to drive there and back in a 30mpg vehicle it may be simpler, easier, and cheaper to just drive ourselves. The plan would be to find enough people willing to drive to fit all our gear in 1-2 cars and people in the other vehicles.

If 4-5 people are to a car the cost of gas split between them would be about $40. That plus entrance fee, food, and emergency funds...that cuts the cost per person going to Rag to around $200. Which is about as cheap as this event is going to come.

If we decide to do group dinners, where everyone chips in for groceries, we could cut the cost even more. And assuming your "emergency funds" are in an accessible bank account the cost could be theoretically less.

At this point we need to decide what everyone wants to do so myself and Kairi can begin figuring things out.
1. Get a ride with Kurai's bus/other
2. Rent vans
3. Drive ourselves
4. Fly a dragon...

I think I'll be passing on Rag this year, so I won't vote. Hopefully everything works out. Maybe I'll be able to make it next year.
