    hmmm...according to randmcnally.com

    Estimated Total Driving Time: 9 hours, 15 minutes
    Estimated Total Driving Distance: 532 miles


    I think I can beat the driving time if it's not inclimate weather. ;)

    I'm not a gamer, but it would be interesting to meet some of the S-M folks.

    /me goes off to think about it.....

    Hey MrBill, I am not a gamer either. No where near one. I think it would be fun to meet all you guys that all. Plus the games.;)

    Prime: I will just have Aran send our fee for us since he has PayPal.

    Might have my other roommate. Gonna have to talk to him about it tho. Not really a forum goer. Biggest game player of all of us tho.

    If you'd like, I'd be willing to put one together for us to vote on. PM me so we cold discuss the best method it to do it.

    EDIT: I see I've been beaten to it. :crazy:

    Pseudonym has been a bit (re)tardy in posting the game list ;)

    Nah, some of it was my fault too - my true suckage at vBulletin came out the other day - I spent hours trying to get Pseudonym access to the top-secret short-media LAN planning forum (Level 1 government top secret access required) and finally shorty stepped in and schooled me :rolleyes: Pseudo would have been much better informed had I gotten it done sooner :(

    Well we could always try and find a way to create a rip in the time and space continuum. I'm sure that can't be too difficult. Just as long as we don't blow past January. That'd suck.

    Hurry up folks! 20 of the 40 spots are already accounted for! come on! We want to meet all of you!
  • edited October 2003
    I was wondering, if this works out, what if SM LAN #2 was before/after E3, at some location close to where e3 itself will be presented?

    Anyways, I'll talk to RyThom and someone else. I'll have them post tomorrow on their definite answer.

    Prime, I'll try to arrange a 'business trip' to Detroit that week. I don't need a spot at the table, I don't game and won't bring a box. But I will sure try to be there to meet and have fun.
    Mr. Bill and I can form a kibitzing section.
    (hum, wonder if I can steal my Dad's box for a few days??)

    dammit. I want to go. ;;___;; if for nothing then just to hang. The intense GEEK that emmenates from this event is just.. so.. COOL...!

    Except that driving to Detroit for a LAN party solo would be met by famillial resistance...

    oh hush. I'd bring you all cookies.

    Of course, three days of people not showering is a big deterrent. I may be a geek, but I'm still a girl, dammit.

    Anyone coming from Toronto? O_O

    I should have a stack of games I'll never play again by then, so there may be some games from me for prizes. They'd be open tho. And only PS2 and GC games. My co worker has dibs on all the Xbox ones, sorry boys.

    My home is your home...

    Seriously, I mean if someone wants to shower, my wife and I try to be hospitable people, and we have two showers, so.....

    Jen:

    If your family unit has a problem with lodging or anything, you're welcome to stay at my house with my wife and I - it might make it easier to convince parents if they know you'll be staying with a "family" as opposed to a bunch of guys :crazy:
