    Default Semi-Annual Semi-Organized Midsouth Gaming Expo! 10/13

    It's Saturday the 13th in October. Where should you be? Bentonville, Northwest Arkansas of course. Besides it always being the place to be, it's even more so when you get to hang out with your favorite southern DPers like... me! Flack! Grimbal! 98PaceCar and more!

    Being held at the wonderful Ice pad, there are plenty of things to see and do like...

    Play!:

    - Awfully bad games from all eras! By unpopular demand, we're bring back the 'how long can you play this bad game' contest!

    - Pretty much any console from the ancient era to modern era... including computers!

    See!:

    - An obsessive amount of Commodore stuff, including a C-One!

    - The horrors that are the RCA Studio II!

    - More people than at that other recent 'gaming show'

    You can see how much fun we've had in previous years by checking out these links:

    http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=93154
    http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=68270
    http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=60341

    and there's another link I couldn't find.

    We got a guest room upstairs (with a bed even!) for those who need to crash here, an uncomfortable to anyone but me futon in the game room, a few couches and plenty of floor space! Admission of course, is always free.

    Come for the games, stay for the fun, bring me your duplicates.. ermmm.

    Maybe next year, because after I move at the end of the year, I'll only be roughly a three hour drive away.

    Cool - it'll be good to have another DPer around here!

    Bumpity. It looks like we might do some hunting early in the morning if we got time.

    Darren: You showing up Friday or Saturday? (I know you have a 5 hour drive).

    If I come in on Friday, I won't be getting there till pretty late (midnight or so). You gonna leave the front door open for me? I was also going to see if Flack wanted to carpool since my new truck gets all of 13 mpg, no sense in both of us working to destroy the environment when one will do just fine!

    This part sounds awesome! You should definitely bust out the Jag and play a little (or a lot of) Air Cars and Fight for Your Life.

    Anyone who can log more than five minutes on either of those two stinkers deserves whatever prize you can give them.

    Aren't you younger than me??

    I haven't talked to Flack yet, but I will in the next few days or so. Might be best just to come in on Saturday.

    Is there a place where I can change diapers?

    Seriously, I'm probably going to have to sit this one out while I look after Baby Pac-Man.

    What, you out-age me? No way.. at least if you do, you don't show it

    I'll be an old 34 on Friday.

    @Earl: Umm.. Flack's Avalanche? I hear it changes into a portable diaper-changing mobile with the push of a button.

    Got a week and a half or so left on this. So far, the usual gang of idiots are going (with a few new idiots):

    Flack
    98PaceCar
    Gapporin
    Grimbal (he rarely posts here..)
    Myself!
    Possibly Andy (local friend)

    I *know* there's other DPers around here besides Earl... speak up!

    Let me know what you guys want to see/do while you're here so I can make sure the right stuff is hooked up. Also, a general rundown of what time you'll be here and such will work.

    That's funny...I was going to ask what time you wanted me to be there! :P

    I can be there as early as 9-10AM-ish, but it depends on if you guys were planning on going thrifting beforehand or not. No sense in trekking all the way out there that early if that's not part of the gameplan. :P

    I'm considering coming up friday night and just crashing in a hotel so I can join in on the hunting. It's been slim pickings around here lately so I need some fresh ground!

    Sounds like a plan - early morning hunting for those who show up early. Not sure how that'll work but since this area isn't *that* big, most people can catch up with the group fairly easily.

    Bumpity-bump. One week left.

    Darren: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to bring me at least 4 cases of Dr. Pepper with sugar in bottles. I'll pay you back of course.

    As for hunting around here, a bit of forewarning - we don't have 'thrifts' really in the traditional sense. They're more like antique shops so it's best to hit the pawn shops, the occasional thrift store, and the Vintage Stocks/Game Xchanges.

    Ok, I've got everything for Brian all ready to go, but is there anything that anybody else is looking for that I can bring up? LMK in the next day or so and I will see what I can do.

    Also, I'm going to need to drive back home on saturday instead of sunday as planned, but I'll be there for as much of saturday as I can.
