Penguincon 2011: It was Fedorable

That's way too far into the future for me to commit, but I am interested and am subscribing to your newsletter.

What crazy said, only I will be hoping to get there from Oklahoma.

I will be there.
Give me a date and I'll buy the tickets.

Subscribing, but it's probably just a dream that a married dude with a ~2 year old child could attend something like this. Sounds awesome, though!

In the rear, with the gear.

Didn't Benticore come from that part of the country last year? And not only did he fly in in style, he left his wife with an infant!

+ 1000000 Cool Points to his wife for that one.

I'm not sure how much help I can be but I might be able to make some calls in regards to a space. Don't add me to the planning committee but I have some contacts at Cleveland State & Tri-C that I might be able to leverage. We might have to entertain some students / aspiring game developers mingling in with us though... Still interested?

This.

If you really are in OH, then I might be interested.

This + I'd be happy to help out with whatever I can.

If you attend, you would indeed be António João I, King of the Nerds.

Yes, with enough notice I can commit to coming / helping.

You had me until you said this. If you aren't getting drunk and taking your pants off, how is anyone supposed to have any fun?

Basically, tagging.

Let me rephrase that

The King of Nerds would know that's a starcraft quote.

Sure he would. I am not he.

I'm in the same boat as Fed. Perhaps we can figure something out a little closer to home, eh?

I'd settle with Ambassador Supreme, but that could do

I will probably be making the trek up with some of the Cinci guys if we get that carpool going again this year.

I am sure I will attend again this year. It is so far away as people have stated.

When it comes down to it, I can help with some things that might be needed. Actually I think i should just be assigned to take pictures of Oily when he gets drunk and takes his pants off. I mean that is what I did last year...

Weeeeeelll...to be fair, taking pictures isn't all you did, if memory serves.

More on topic: everyone feel free to start tossing out ideas for things to do, ways to organize, etc. Obviously the venue is going to change/limit some of the stuff we can accomplish, but I think we'd all rather have too many awesome ideas than not enough.

I suggest we try the ongoing tournament/decathlon/omegathon again but set everything up in advance and be realistic about how long things will take.

I like how every conversation he's involved in eventually turns into Cheeto: Sexual Predator.

Toph has the right of it so feel free to toss suggestions out there. We'll have a google doc going with ideas so we can keep things straight and run them down as soon as we have the information to determine if we can actually do them.

The (hopeful) basics:

Food/drink room
BYOC LAN room ('bring your own computer' for those not in the know)
Console room
Board Game Room(s)
Ideally a Rock Band room as well. I assume people will still want to play this come October?

Perks that I want:
Wireless network.
Good internet pipes for BYOC room so we can play with other parties.
Better coordination with the other parties. This might only be for a single night.
Web cams set up to transmit to said other parties and some monitors to see them.
A few large tournaments that might end up running all weekend. If the internet is good, we might involve teams at other parties.
Omegathon type deal (thanks CP, I forgot). I think I want a group of people to handle this if we decide to try this again.
Prizes and give-aways? (this is a longshot, here but we'll see).

Add to muh list!

Agreed. I think that fewer events with a very simple point system is called for. As part of the initial planning group, I can say that it was originally planned as the "main event" of last year, and that's not really its place, looking back.

Plus it needs a different name. We are not PAX.

I really meant that he also drank quite a bit a got giggly (in addition to taking pictures of OP sans pants).

Keep me posted. My only promise is that I will bring The Last Night on Earth and the Expansion.

Also, a Harley so yall can see how cool I am. TK will be riding bitch.

GWJ poker tournament anyone?
