    Just a forewarning.

    We have been known to:

    1) Drain the bar of all their beer

    This happened, famously, in Lexington, Kentucky (2006). The hotel bar was unprepared for the amount of alcohol that was to be consumed by nerds, and the party moved from the hotel bar to downtown Lexington, where geeks mingled with college girls.

    2) Cincy in 2008

    The hotel bar closed early (though we got hooked up after they closed, that's a story for another time) and so we invaded downtown Cincy and ended up at a bar that, thanks to the downtown scene and a ton of nerds, stopped allowing people in due to capacity limits (their capacity was over 600 easily).

    3) Pasadena, 2004

    Different hotel, but somehow ended up in downtown Los Angelas. Don't ask.

    The infamous "AAAEEEYYYY" started at OTFCC 2003, the first "gathering" as, at the time, it was the largest group of TFW2005 staff to show up. The "Knuckles Sports Bar" was invaded, and between staff getting alcohol poisoning (Jux), glasses being broken (myself), and our loud noise bringing more people in (Dreamwave, Hasbro, Voice Actors), it was a pretty crazy night.

    Memories :)

    Word of advice - when you introduce yourself to people, I found this works best:

    "Hey! How are ya? I'm Chris, post as Kickback at 2005".

    Bam. Done. And people will call you by your board name, so get used to it.

    I don't like anybody on this list. They all give me a weird rash.
