    $20.00 USD registration cost, or $20.00 in whatever currency you have on you at the time?

    Good point. US Dollars. Post edited.

    I feel really bad about having to charge a reg. fee, but this thing is gonna cost some major coin to throw together . We have to rent furniture, buy some more equipment for infrastructure, drive people to and from the airport, etc.

    We're currently hoping to get some industry sponsorships. I plan on offering a door prize, so you'll get SOMETHING for your money, besides the honor of meeting your fellow short-medians face to face ;)

    Pseudonym has a big ol' van - it is being christened the "Short-Media Short-Bus Shuttle" for travel to and from the local Taco Bell ;)

    Thank you for your reservation, m'lord. You'll be staying in room 2 (of 3). Mind the children running about your feet. Oh, and please excuse the cat - he does so love to sleep on people's faces.

    Brian,

    First of all, many and i mean MANY thanks for even considering to fix something like this. My Colorado Avalanche cap is off my head for a while for you (which is rare).

    Second, $20 is peanuts compared to the time and quite possibly the amount of money you have to fork out.
    I am trying like hell to down this trip buddy. My tickets was as of yesterday $700 but i dont care, I HAVE to do this.

    Good man!

    hahah marcus, you'd better leave that hat at home, you'll get killed for wearing that in Hockeytown.

    I have a special trip planned for you, Mack, you'd better try to make it ;)

    Just out of curiousity, if you could see a Wings game, would you rather see them play Boston, or Chicago? ;)

    I'm interested, but not quite sure yet if I want to go.

    I kind of gave up on the old Icrontic community when it split. It sounds like fun, but some more info (like what games, etc) would help.


    EDIT: BTW, I live in Grand Rapids so the trip would be nothing. :D

    MM is going to lean on his clients for all the swag he can lay his grubby little mitts on. I've even got an Athlon64 board that may find its way there. :)

    I dont care if it is the Islanders i have to see, as long as i can get the chance to see a NHL game live at the arena, ANY team will do.

    Can you get some plates?

    There will be a thread going up within a few about what games are going to be running, and any suggestions from participants. Currently we are looking at UT (Of course), BF1942, Halo (Pc and Xbox, o my!!), HL2, C&C, Warcraft, JK, R63, etc etc.

    We'll have to determine which ones we want as offical Tourneys (Prolly UT and HL2) and which ones are just for fun.

    Hey SimGuy, are you going? If so, how are you getting down there? Driving to Windsor could lighten the cost considerably.

    I'll try to throw together a trip up there for myself and CBDroege. Possibly Zanthian and CrazyJoe0813 as well (two of our friends who are members here but haven't posted). We're fine sleeping on the floor at sarcnet; we're used to it from LANWAR accommodations...

    Funny, I was just thinking that. You know what else is funny? Even if it was simple, by nature it was a higher thought. ;D

    PS: Thanks for the kind words Thrax, you have made my pretty miserable day much better with your kind words :)

    I HATE being the bearer of bad news, but the wings are away that saturday night. :grumble:

    They play the wednesday before, and the wednesday after, so keep that in mind when you get plane ticket.

    It really depends on what the weather is like there. If its ****ty outside and everything's snowed in, probably not going at all.

    If I am going, I'll be driving down.

    I don't know about bringing my rig south of the border and back... that will most likely get me into troubles... how about having a LONG wire to get another part of the lan party in Windsor, ON? that would be coooool!
