INTV Brotherhood Annual Meeting?

Recommended Posts

Since a certain viral strain ruined our annual party in Portland, does anyone think staging our own get together would be a good idea? I have no idea how the where and when would work out but I hear Vegas has opened back up...

 

Thoughts?

A get together before the weather turns would be good - August or early to mid-Sept may be a good time-frame. 

 

Plenty of places to go, but I'd like to steer clear of any Covid hotspots and I am not much of a Vegas fan.

 

But Vegas would be easy and probably cheap.

Open a Zoom meeting as well for those that financially can't be there

Our local Game Developers' group has been using Zoom and Discord, along with Meetup.

I'm about to spend a good chunk of my Portland mad money on other games, and I'm also fairly paranoid about catching the 'rona. But I'm in for a Zoom meeting if you guys have one before you get too involved with a marathon all-you-can-drink-free-as-long-as-you're-at-a-blackjack-table gambling session.

No need to call us strange unless he asks 

 

Call us "old Intellivision buddies getting together to relive/rehash the good old days of yesteryear", and then if he asks "are they strange", then you can reply with "yes, they are strange, but in a friendly, non-threatening, way"

 

Or as Douglas Adams puts it - Mostly Harmless

 

Plus, no reason why he can't join the fun

My wife will confirm I’m strange.  Just wish she would stop changing the locks whenever I go out.  
 

Can’t blame her.  Just bought another Carnival because mine didn’t have an instruction manual.

I'm interested in getting something going.  Will there be Intellivision games to buy from any entrepreneurs?

Currently too soon to know if Vegas will be safe in 2-3 months.  Separately, I might have to stay home for my wife's health due to possible surgery around that time.  Hard to commit to travel at this point.

I hear the date of 10/10/2020 has some significance around here :flute:

 

Maybe there is a little place down in SoCal that can host a get together

Just explain to him that you're a member of the Intellivision Brotherh....on second thought, just tell him we're strange 😁

As much as I want to meet you, I don’t think that I will travel to the US this year. But maybe we can manage to do some virtual meeting. 🙂

Are you talking to Jason? This is a family forum, let’s keep it clean.

I've never gone to the strip, only stayed around Fremont a couple times. I assume the strip is just like Fremont but with fewer old people, and Fremont doesn't try to hide how seedy it is. Go one block off the main drag and it's kinda grimy.

 

If you go outside Vegas though, the desert there is really beautiful.

Well I'll be in Vegas for the August 27th preseason game between the Raiders and Cardinals. Not missing the 1st ever game in my new stadium!  Feel free to join me if anyone is bored by then. 

 

Assuming said game isn't cancelled or Vegas shuts back down again.... Darnnit!
