Synchrony (party on train) full site up

category: parties [glöplog]
All travel and compos info, how to get a train ticket, how to register are all up now:


The train ticket (about $70 if purchased now) will be the main official party cost, although most people will want lodging and will want to go round-trip. There will be a cover for the opening concert the night before. The train is on January 28 NYC to Montréal. The compos will be in Montréal and will be open to anyone, no charge. Many details discussed on the site.

Questions that aren't answered there? Let me know, here or by emailing us.
That s really cool :)

Depart 10:20 AM, Sunday, January 29, 2017
Very nice! Please add your info, numtek and anyone else who registers, into the form at:


So we can form a "group" for early boarding, together, in New York Penn Station. Also, so we can say who's coming.
What hotel is everyone staying at? I need it to be nice and cheap.
I'll stay at the InterContinental Montréal, 4 star/8.7 reviews, about $100 USD/night for 2 people, 6 minute walk from Shopify where the compos will be held.
That's so awesome, I hope I'll be able to make it! :D

Train tickets and hotel rooms reserved.

WRT site reg, I just get a blank page with a query string in the address bar. Did it work? Having it return "See you at the party!" may inspire more confidence ;)

Heh, it did work, and you're right that we could tweak the UI a bit. Let me work on that and see about getting it up the main site. Also, very glad you'll join us!

Submissions will be available a bit before the compos, and before the remote deadline, whenever that will be. Hopefully next month, but we need to work on publicizing the party ad getting the rest of it in place!
I'm super interested in this one, just looking hard at my schedule. I will absolutely be there unless something catastrophic comes up w/my work. DSR will have some nice prods to enter too. :D

Would it be too rude if I skipped the train party and just came for the compos? Then I can fly into my mum & dad's town & drive from there.

The compos is open to anyone, whether they take the train or not. Plus there are remote entries, so you don't need to be on the train to enter.

One just must consider how much fun is to be had, and WWTED?

Sorry to miss you at Synchrony, @dipswitch, but yes, see you in Zurich!

Anyone else coming to Synchrony should *please* let me know by registering:


This may allow me (if I find an Amtrak employee who is kind enough) to put all of us in the party together in an official Amtrak group, so we can board together and claim some space.

See all of you soon!
Sounded like an awesome party! Any pictures?
