Title: Early Badge Pickup!
Post by: mDuo13 on April 15, 2007, 10:22:26 AM
So I was thinking, "I kind of want to check out early badge pickup on Thursday, but I've heard that the lines are kind of ridiculous compared to the pre-reg line Friday morning." And my next thought was, "Maybe there will be a bunch of people playing with their DSes in line, though. That'd be fun." That lead to my third thought:

"What if we planned a time for anyone from the Fanimafia who was planning to do Thursday badge pickup to show up and hang out? It could maybe replace our normal Friday get-togethers or something."

Anyone else down for this idea? If so, what time? Pickup is 6-10pm on Thursday the 24th.

Sounds good to me, in that I actually have Thursdays off with my current work schedule :)

Fine by me, so long as it doesn't involve cutting in the line.

I want to go to the Pre-Reg, but I'm not sure if I can 'cause I MAY have work that night.  But, yeah... D:

I can try to move things around for that day too, I guess I could come with  my DS if I choose to switch things around.

I can go, but I could probably only stick around until 9 (as the next day is a regular school day - DAMMIT!)

You're not cutting school for fanime?
I mean, out of all days to cut school, it might as well be for the cause of fanime.

Depends on the time but I'm down for this one. I won't be able to DS with you guys.  Will probably spend my time playing sudoku on my pda phone, not unless someone brings along a board game.

Ah, good point. Since a good number of people don't have DSes, let's see...

Apples to Apples, Munchkin, Ninja Burger, and UNO are on the table, at the very least.

Otakuapprentice, you should ask Dr. O what to do since he knows everything.  :roll:   Anyway I consulted with him and this is what he says:  *cough*

After mDuo13 acquires his laminated badge you club him with a blunt weapon, or anything that rolls 1d2 damage. Drag his body behind the nearest bush, so long if it's not one of the frequently used bushes, and enjoy your FanimeCon weekend under mDuo13's identity. And be sure to meet up with the strippers he hired Friday evening.

you couldn't have been able to have asked him that type of question. reason why? here's a note he left me:

Quote from: "Dr. O"
yo, dude. im gonna be dead for the next week. call me up after the ticker starts workin' again and we'll get wasted. later.

yea, see? he's gonna revive himself sometime around thursday-ish. he said somethin about goin' to SF for some sort of shindig on the weekend. his speech was a little slurred, so i didnt catch much before he whipped out the shock paddles. i guess he called in a vacation, LOL.

since it is Day 0 and almost nothing is going on that day, with the exception of ZZ and the Swap Meet, I guess you guys can count me in. Who's Hotel Room do we "hijack" though? lol  :twisted:

I will be there on Thursday on staff setting things up and could stop by and hang out, if thats alright.  Don't know how long though, depends if I have a hotel room Thurs or not, or if there is a sharks game on too.

Edit: Also have a DSLite.  What game(s) for it should I bring?  

I wonder if I could see if we could use one of the video rooms and hook up a Wii/PS3/360 up and play?

I might be there to pick up my badge and get volunteered up : D
If I'm not working Thursday.....


And I do have a DS...... >_>

Post by: ININ on April 16, 2007, 12:23:15 AM
I'm planning to take Thursday off.  There's gotta be some open areas around the con to hang out.  I'm going to bring my poker chips for Tabletop Gaming and a few card games.  I think about bringing some of board games . . . I'm bringing three cosplays and my laptop.  Too much stuff I'm bringing already =P
Title: Early Badge Pickup!
Post by: Jerry on April 16, 2007, 02:12:10 AM
I'm down I've requested a 1/2 day off and will be out by 11AM that Thursday....

techinically we could pick up badges and find a room/house and hang out til the midnight showing up PotC:3

werent we planning that already?

I would figure it would be a day 0 gathering, board games, Uno, and Ds/PsP gathering and then Potc to start off Fanime right.

As usual my home is open for trashing and/or crashing if no has a room by then and needs a place to say til Friday check in time.

*** as usual come rescrictions may apply and space might be limited...  

special treatment if you dress up, cosplay, ninjas and of course Pirates from the Carribean are welcome to party as well. ***

2) Bring in my snackage to my room
3) Get my cosplays to my room

Nah. That's Lisu doing that. Speaking of which, I need to call him...

But there should be tables set up in that area anyway.

Well, Who has gotten a bigger room at the con anyway?

Reason why Im getting a room...was because a friend from out of town needed to get a room...and my house wasnt big enough for the crew that has been arranged...so now I have 7 people...counting myself...into one hotel room...but thats ok I can always just walk home and crash when ever I want to :D

Post by: XpHoBiaX on April 20, 2007, 01:57:31 PM
well, being that Thursday IS the day I will be in town...I think it'd be a good idea to meet up with all you guys. Especially if I am to be staying with kegan (I think it was her...lol) in her hotel room. And that two people have armour that they will need to get from me. (And a dress) I'll prolly be down there early (well, noon), so If any of you guys could lemme know where to meet you all, it'd help a lot.

I will be quite new to the area, becuase I ONLY visit the area ONCE a YEAR. lol so PLEEEEEAAAASSSSSEEE flag me down or something!!! I'll see If I can wear something you all can recognize me by. (I've decided not to bring my guitar becuase it just got fixed and had some special adjustments)

o____o Maybe I'll just carry a big fat sign with my screen name on it. It works at Airports....

I almost saw everyone from the fanimafia today, and also seeing people that I know from c.com that I haven't seen in a long time. It was a kickback day and basically, to prep yourself up for the con. I need sleep, so I will see ya all later.  :D
