Tempest

2013 Meetup

Recommended Posts

Tempest and I have gone to that show for the two or three years. Its not that awesome in itself so maybe making a group event out of it would be a good idea.

 

I can't stay out late that night since I have to be at the race track the next morning, but usually we're back from Cleveland before dark anyway.

 

If we want to do something on another weekend I can hold the event at my house as I have in the past. Usually in that event we meet at Pinball Pete's in Ann Arbor.

 

Harry: I apologize for the problem last time. Tempest and I met that day and didn't go to Pete's because not a single person confirmed they were coming, including you. As far as we knew it was just him and me, and we decided to do something else...I don't even remember what it was. We probably just did stuff at my place. I'd love to have you over again...at least so you can show me how to use that GBA flash cart I got from you. I'm the dumb!

Yeah the Cleveland show seems to be the exact same vendors every year either the exact same stuff. If you didn't find anything at the show the year before, you won't this year. It also seems to be heavily skewed towards SNES and up, which isn't a bad thing, but it's not what I'm in to. It's as extremely crowded and hard to move around. They really need a bigger space. On the plus side, the beer in the bar is good and mega cheap. I'd go again, but only with a bigger group to make it worthwhile as a road trip kind if thing.

 

Maybe next time we can do the party in my game room once I've met all the new people and can calm my wife's fears that you're all not crazy murderers or something (or at least not tell her if you are).

I've never been to the Cleveland show before, and it does sound like a good chance to meet people from the forums, without having to meet at someone's house, Pinball Pete's would be cool too, how long can I keep this run on sentence going?

I will be checking out the Cleveland show for sure. It will be my first time.

 

Let's do Pinball Pete's sometime, guys. When is best for you all? Weekends are best for me personally but I can make other nights work if necessary. I need to meet some other Atarians because there are far too few in my neckothawoods.

I usually have to work until 2pm on Sat. but that's no big deal. I may not have style but I'm ALWAYS fashionably late :P

 

Definitely think about going to the show. My Atari 2600 game wont be ready in time but at least I can buy things I don't need!

Great! I'll see you guys there then. I'll wear something Atari-oriented so that it is painfully obvious who I am.

 

I'm also looking forward to the convention on Saturday.

 

theloon, what are you working on?

Hopefully Chad will chime in here on the date and time.

It's already the first Saturday in July? Holy flatus! Of course, this is the one day I am without transportation. Someone take pics! :)

 

I'm trying to wrap up this:

I think we'll have to reschedule. We need to nail down a firm date here.

Fair renough. I made my attempt so I'll let somebody else pick the next date. I might still go today because I'd like to check the place out. It sounds cool.

The problem is, if Zeta is going to host it, we need to see when he's free. But if we just want to all meet at Pete's and then see what happens from there we can try for any weekend. How about July 20th?

Yeah I forgot about the art fair. Zeta has been rather quiet lately, I hope he's alright.

Hi guys, I sort of...forgot about this stuff. I literally only come to Atari Age for this thread so I sometimes get side tracked. :)

 

I should be able to do something in August. This weekend is vintage racing at Waterford.

August is fine by me. Once I get to meet everyone I might be able to talk my wife into letting me host something in my game room next time.
