Metal Gear Gathering 2017 (Official!)
« on: April 05, 2017, 11:50:56 PM »

Update 2: Our event page on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/120718205150681/

Update: We are official, please see time/day/location below. Please join us if you're planning to cosplay Metal Gear.

So...trying to gauge interest in another Metal Gear gathering for Fanime 2017. We had a good turnout last year, despite the host being MIA (I suppose I'll never live that one down). This year, we have zacknini volunteering to co-host, so that if I'm late, someone else will be there to take over.

If people are interested, I'm looking into either Friday, Saturday, or Monday.  Please comment to let me know.


Metal Gear Gathering 2017


Day: Friday, May 26, 2017

I think I'll put in for Friday afternoon or Monday morning, in that case. Last year it was on a Friday afternoon.

I may set up a facebook page once the time/location gets approved.

Would you like a list of all the gatherings and their times so you can apply to the times that are available?

Sure, thanks, that'd be helpful. Right now I'm looking for a Friday time slot, hopefully.

4pm would probably depend on how fast I can check into the hotel and get my badge, as I won't be getting to San Jose until around 12-1pm :/ Though if the badge lines aren't bad it probably wouldn't be a problem!

5 Sounds good! Since the remodel the badge lines have gotten better so that should be enough time :3

I submitted the request for Friday at 5pm. Backup options are Friday 6pm, Friday 4pm. Then Sunday and Saturday only if absolutely necessary.

For location, I requested the same spot as last year, the offsite location. Unless anyone has a better suggestion?

I don't have a facebook set up yet. Should I make one? Or can I get a volunteer?

I'm fine with wherever! Where offsite was it last year?

I wouldn't be a good volunteer for the facebook part since I very rarely use it, so unfortunately I can't help out in that way though :/

So haven't heard anything back yet. I'll give it a couple more days before I email the organizers and ask about our status.

I'm fine with wherever! Where offsite was it last year?

I wouldn't be a good volunteer for the facebook part since I very rarely use it, so unfortunately I can't help out in that way though :/

Last year it was at the snake statue in Cesar Chavez park. (Snake puns everywhere...)
