Thats great news!! I want to strongly recommend this event to everyone in the Pacific Northwest. I have made the trip from Vancouver for the past few years and it is well worth it. Rick, Lee, and the others who organize this event do a great job in putting on a really fun event. There is something for everyone so be sure to spread the word and I look forward to another great event!

How about AA making the trip up this year? I'll even offer to bring some genuine Canadian back bacon and maple syrup as an added bonus - anyone? anyone?

Considering it, it's going to be a busy spring! PhillyClassic 5 is coming up in a month, and then Midwest Gaming Classic is two weeks before NWCGE2K4. That's a lot of traveling in a short amount of time, and we're also making preparations for AGE2. :)

 

I've never been to Seattle before (closest I've been is to Portland), so that would be fun.

Looks like I missed my chance to pre-register, but don't worry Rick. I still intend to come.

 

Is anyone interested in sharing a ride from Vancouver, BC? I don't have a car, but I can buy you a tank of gas.

My compliments to the NWCGE crew for hosting another great event, this year at the Holiday Inn in Seattle. The event was bigger and better, with the highlight being a presentation by 2600 designer and programmer Joe Decuir! Once again job well done guys and I look forward to next year!

Just wanted to say I had a good time. It was nice to meet Rick Weis, Lee Krueger, and Jarret (aka PackratVG). I picked up a bunch of not-so-rare carts along with Skeleton+ and NWCGE Invaders.

 

Sorry I missed you, angusjake, (and sorry I didn't meet the lady in your avatar.) :D

Thank goodness, I thought I pissed somebody else off for a second :)

 

If my Computer Space and Pong make it back from E3 we can talk, just kidding. I know they made it there cause I saw them on TV today.

 

Sure wish I could have made NWCGE and keep up the good work for the classic community.
