i waited around for about 30 minutes at one of the Charity Tournament tables. It turns out that at 8am that area is completely empty!
That being said, I will keep this as a meeting spot for future NDKs.
Maybe if this post stays up for a year then it will gain some more attention.
Next year I'll try to make myself a bit more identifiable (or leave some contact info for myself if the mods let me), just in case you missed me
