July 2000, Cin City
Once again, mudders from all over took over the lobby of a hotel. This year's
victim was the Radisson Hotel at the Cincinnati Airport. At almost any given
time you could find a tired, weary eyed mudder looking for someone to talk
with. (And I'm sure the other guests enjoyed hearing about our "killing"
Friday night there were a variety of unofficial activities going
throughout the wee hours of the morning. From trips to to local bars,
catching the opening screening of X-Men, heading down to Kentucky to
an infamous Cletus Drunkenfest to hanging out at the hotel getting to know each other.
Saturday started off with dog punting
on the back lawn. People gathered around to see who could punt the dog,
or other stuffed animal, the farthest. Unfortunately the dog was
the least to get punted. As everyone decided that the sheep was
more appropriate. We don't know how, but Ropmas gets our special
kick award. For he managed to get the poor little bear stuck on
the roof. From there we moved indoors for the Uno Tourney. This
year we had thirty wide eyed Uno hungry participants. Everyone
who joined in played their hearts out, but there can be only one
true Uno champ.
About 5:30PM the main party started. Everyone lined up
outside the room so that they could walk by the registration
table. The players had a great time returning marbles to
Peeron that they all apparently found. Thus adding to his Marble
collection. Peeron also introduced to us Marbozo. After
Marbozo dinner arrived, pizza and pop for everyone. And something
that was needed before the main event of the party, the Scavenger Hunt.
While the teams ran around looking for hunt items the few that
stayed behind enjoyed themselves playing Uno or Articulate. (Little
bit of advice here, if you sit next to Tensor in Uno, he just
loves getting Draw 4's, Draw 2's and Skips.) The Official Party
winded down with the raffle. Many
great prizes were on hand, from t-shirts to a giant long sword.
Also who can forget the coveted Admission Marbles from the
first OMP. They made their way back again this year, and
got raffled off to one lucky winner.
Over all it was a fun weekend for all. Many new faces attended this
year, along with many of the old. We also had a few new events, and
hopefully they will become a permanent addition to the OMP's.
Special thanks to all of the players and wizards who worked hard to make
this a success. Some people have continued to contribute even after the
event, by posting their party pictures for online viewing:
