Not 100% on whether or not we'll make it this year, but we're gonna try!  If we do, I'm gonna try and drag my sister along this time, will be her first retro convention.

I now know for certain that I'll be able to make it, along with my girlfriend ("mvo" on here).  It will be the first time for both of us.  Looking forward to it.   :)

I just purchased my ticket to be at PGRE on the 21st, am staying with a friend in Salem and will spend all day in Portland. He used to live in Gresham, wish he still did, but should still be there pretty much all day.

So can we convince everyone to wear a name tag with their Atari Age username and avatar on it, so we can tell who each other are?

If our avatars are animated, do we have to find someplace that can do lenticular images? :)

I've printed AtariAge badges in the past for members, but don't have the bandwidth to do it this year.  I've never gone as far as printing avatars on the badges, but that is a good idea.  :)

I still have plenty of badge holders, and I could easily print 3" x 4" badges all day long.  Don't have any more of those sexy lanyards, though, need to get more.  :) 

 

But, I don't have all day long to print badges or I'd make new ones for this year..  Next year I will endeavor to do so.

Whatever you do... don't Google "sexy lanyard".

I'll be there! Mostly on Sunday, probably hanging out at the AtariAge and Ianoid booths trying to not spend too much money.

 

 

Several homebrew authors will be in attendance (including John W. Champeau, Darrell Spice, Jr., Chris Spry, and Fred Quimby), and many other retro gaming personalities will be on hand.

Was only able to make it for that Saturday but definitely had fun and found some neat Jaguar stuff, the stars being those 3 new games through AA.
