Minecon Earth is coming soon! A worldwide livestream will take place on November 18, 2017 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time! To find the time in your timezone, see here: http://everytimezone.com/#2017-11-18,240,cn3 For a countdown timer, see here: https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20171118T12&p0=179&msg=Minecon+Earth&font=slab Mojang is not hosting a large and eloaborate Minecon in a convention center this year. Instead, there will be smaller but no less official viewing parties of the livestream all across North America, as well as one (at the time of this writing) in London. The full list of official parties can be found here: https://minecraft.net/en-us/minecon/parties The events at Microsoft Stores are free, and appear to be set up as first come, first served. The first 50 people in line will get priority seating. They may be allowing more than 50 people inside, but you will at least be able to meet other Minecrafters. (the information given is a bit vague) There is an option to RSVP and register for the event. To RSVP, (the option is a bit hidden) go to the page above, find your closest/desired location, go to the microsoft.com link, scroll down to the "Space is limited" area and click "Find an event near you," put in your location's state/city and click it, scroll down to "See more event details" and click it, and press RSVP. The events at Super League Gaming do cost money, $10.00 USD per ticket, and you get access to their party on November 18th. Both event locations offer games and other activities besides the livestream, and you might be able to meet other members of The Sandlot! If you can't make it to one of these parties, don't worry! You can still watch the livestream from your own home too! Sandlot Meet Ups and Safety If you would like to attempt to meet other Sandlotians for Minecon Earth, the rules listed below must be followed. You may share which event you are going to, but your parent or guardian must approve of your post before submitting. ALL communication about when and where to meet up at an event must be contained within this thread. You cannot send individual players private conversations on forums or in-game. Do not share phone numbers, email addresses, or social media accounts with anyone. Only meet in a public location where there are a lot of people, preferably at the event itself. Have a parent or guardian with you for the meet up. Do not enter vehicles or leave the event with people you do not know. You may post pictures of the event afterward on this thread or in our REAL LIFE photos thread here: http://www.sandlotminecraft.com/threads/share-real-life-family-pictures-here-only.20840/ To have a successful meet up, I would suggest the following: Get to the event early. Wear the Sandlot T-shirt or carry a small Sandlot sign. You can use the logo at the end of this post to print out if you would like. Check this thread often to see if people are posting where they are (e.g., inside the store, to the right, by the big creeper head). I will be attending the party in Tempe, Arizona at the Harkins Tempe Marketplace 16 theater with @PrincessPolite, so if you are going there, I'd love to meet you! I give bear c0w hugs, so be prepared. If you do go to one of these viewing parties, make sure to tell everyone about The Sandlot and why you love playing here!
