Room and Ride Boards

We want as many people as possible to be able to attend CTKoL 3. Attending a meet/con can be much easier (and in some cases only possible) by sharing the cost among several people. Check out the CTKoL3 Rooms and CTKoL3 Rides boards for people to contact. Please feel free to add your own vacancies or requests to this board. We do ask that you let the person who posted a vacancy edit it to avoid confusion.

History of CTKoL

Two years ago, as you may know, ConnectiKoL I met with great success at the Best Western Camelot in Wethersfield. We enjoyed a semi-period re-enactment of the co-la wars, a hippy stone painting picnic on the shores of beautiful lake whatshername at Giuffrida Partk in Meriden after we discovered that Chuck Barry was performing at the park we'd originally intended on playing at, and we very much enjoyed Shirley picking tiny plastic swords from Jed's mohawk with his mouth during blank white cards. (Okay, maybe Lehks is the only one who enjoyed that, but he really, really enjoyed it!)
Last year at CTKoL2 we stayed in the econolodge in the sleazy back alley, and mostly managed not to get sick from the dirty hobo germs infesting our rooms. We had another successful cola wars re-enactment and another pleasant picnic. We chilled with ConneciCon people who happened to be staying at our motel (and said "you're from KoL? Cool, we love that game!") and destroyed some property. Lehks decided not to ever broadcast from his old desktop at a sleazy motel ever again. The filthy hippy camping trip was rain-and-lightning stormed out and the bitchin' meat car that was supposed to take us there broke down to a point that not even old cola cans could help. We "camped" back at the Best Western Camelot, and all went home.
This year, we're back at the Camelot, and are planning to have a bitchin' good time!
