    Do you have the perfect spot for the next Anniversary Party location? Tired of having to travel across the continent when there are totally kickin' rad places for us to host the event in your own backyard? Has it been a while, and you're ready for the Tower to throw another party in your neck of the woods? With our event in Idaho right around the corner, we're looking for our next party spot!

    If you would like to bid on a location for our 19th Anniversary event, please fill out THIS form and also send a quick e-mail titled "19th ANNIVERSARY BID - YOUR LOCATION" to naevents@tarvalon.net, events@tarvalon.net, keeper@tarvalon.net and amyrlin@tarvalon.net. (and yes you need to send it to all 4 so we know to look for your bid!)

    I've also included a link to a page that lays out all of the questions from the form so that you can see them in advance and know what we're looking for and how to fill out the form itself. BID QUESTIONS

    Bids need to be submitted by March 15, 2019.

    Things to keep in mind when submitting a bid:
    • If your bid is selected, YOU will be an integral part of the planning. By making a bid, you are volunteering to be the Local Liaison. What does that mean? Follow this link! LOCAL LIAISON GUIDELINES
      • The Local Liaison is essentially a staff position in the Department of Events and Conferences with a term of about 14 months.
      • You will be our eyes and ears on the spot. You will be expected to do a lot of the leg work to find accommodations, local activities, and transportation options.

    • Anni is generally held in the spring (February - May) in a campground/conference center type location. The venue should have cabin-like living arrangements, kitchen space for meal preps (or on-site dining services), and space for events such as sword fighting or archery.
    • Preferred site locations are moderately isolated. We tend to be fairly loud so being 10 feet from a cabin holding a girl scout meet wouldn't be the best location.
    • Normal Anni attendance is 35-60 people.
    • We aim for ticket prices somewhere around $175 - $200 and about 85% is allocated for food and lodgings.
    • If you have multiple venues in mind, go ahead and submit more than one bid!
    • If you’re missing answers to a question that is required, make a note about why you don’t know instead. Perfection isn’t necessary!

    Here is a link to the locations of past events including Anniversary Parties: https://library.tarvalon.net/index.php?title=Events_and_Conferences


    Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions, and we're looking forward to seeing your bids!

    **A final note - for those of you intending to put in a bid for 20th Anni in 2021...I will likely be asking for bids for that at the end of this summer so be on the lookout and be thinking about if you intend to submit one and who might be able to assist you with it!**

    Volleyball confirmed? Who is going to be the Pam Beasley that just stomps the rest of us? I don't know this community 100% just yet, but I am sure that person is out there! :)

    also - @Alora Sionn I love your signature picture! I'm getting Stormlight Archive vibes for some reason, though I am not sure why.

    Get on it! My region of Ohio FINALLY has a lodge large enough to house us all so I'll be submitting for that area well.

    Is it Ohio? I am confused, but if it is, I might actually make it! I might be heading home to Indiana a bit earlier than expected and write my thesis from home! ^^

    Oh, no - I am putting in a bid for Ohio, but haven't even yet! I was just double checking so I could work on rates. Bids do not close until the 15th, I am sure there will be announcements a few weeks after when the team has had a chance to review.

    Oh man!
    It’s been since 2009 that I attended any event. Here’s hoping!
