    Okay here's the thing I wouldn't mind meeting the lot of you.Maybe get to know you a bit better.

    But recently I was invited to ANOTHER get together with another group within the fandom.So I had to rethink things a bit

    So I'm thinking something basic.I'll be arriving IIRC at 8pm on September 28th.And since the Hyatt's like 10 mins from the airport let's say I arrive at the hotel at 8:30pm which is still early as I don't sleep till 1am or so.

    So I'm thinking we can just all hang at the bar in the Hyatt.I mean there's good drinka,we some food.I believe the bar at the Hyatt Regency O'Haire sold breaded chicken wings and fries.So I figure that's a good place to hang out.Hell even in the lobby just outside the bar would cool

    And if Shin_Gouki will be so kind,he can bring his modded XBox with him.And those of us who are interested can all congragate to Shin's room and partake in some old school Street Fighter/fighting game action

    What do you guys think of this plan?IMPO it's basic but still allows for good fun w/o too much spending.

    Also who here from 2005 would ACTUALLY be interested to meet up.Feel free to sound off here :) 

    Heck who knows maybe we'll catch Scott McNeil at the bar and he'll join us.I wouldn't mind waxing his tail in SF II :ev:

    I wont be switching to the hyatt until friday, until then I will be at a hotel a mile away...that wont stop me from hanging out.

    I know I am supposed to be boozing it up with some folks...so if that's where they are at, then so am I. But that seems like a good place to do it at. We boozed up at the Hyatt bar in '03, and we had a friggin blast...and somehow we DIDN'T get kicked out!!! I say we tear up this bar too :D

    I think I can make that. I'll bring my bud, who's not actually a board member, as well. We'll be getting into town on Thursday morning sometime, but after reg check in and toy pickup for us, I don't see much to do until Friday morning. And that should go fairly quick, since I'm a dealer. Might even drag a few friends from other parts of the country along.

    Look for guys wearing Captured Prey hats <G>. I'm the nearly bald-shaven one with the scruffy beard.

    Ok, I will be staying at La Quinta Hotel. It's on 1920 Stanton Way. It's only about 4 miles Northeast from the con. I'm game to hang out friday night too.

    How's about I say BOTH Thursday and Friday :D 

    Although since I don't know the time of my other gettogether on Friday.

    Hence why I KNOW Thursday's doable

    So LioKaiser show up on Thursday evening and you'll DEFINITELY see me :D 

    *Hmm contemplates starting a "Post your pic so I'll recognize you" thread ;)

    Well I know we'll be hanging out every night...just dont know the details.

    But in years past, we hung out every night, if not at the bar, then we would hang in a room, or go room hoping. I usually bring a few cases of beer in my car...we get together somewheres and have a blast.

    I'll be at the bar. Drinking. Endlessly. That's where you can meet up with me. But I won't be leaving the bar.

    I barely remember what you look like to be honest.But I still think I'll recognize you if I saw you.

    Good to know you'll be there:thumb 

    I'll be sure to stop by once I make contact with my roommate(s) as it'll still be early on that Thursday evening.

    Maybe we can get reaccquainted :)

    Hell yeah man!

    Well I can't speak for Shauns plan (but from what I gather it sounds rather open), but the more the merrier...especially when it consists of boozing at the hotel bar! :D
