    Default Time to Start Planning The CGE2K12 DP After-Party

    Well, the CGE2K10 DP After-Party didn't quite go the way we expected. I miss the days when Punkoffgirl and Kevates were making the parties go. Without pointing fingers, I seriously want to make next year's event one that will bring these after-parties back to greatness.

    At the very least, the $5 cover charge got everyone these super-cool collectible DP/CGE shot glasses! Many thanks to our partners at CustomInk.com for doing the usual stellar job. And there was plenty of beer and pizza, eventually... oh AND... AND! We had the whole exhibit hall to ourselves, with 30+ arcade machines, couches, and Medieval Mayhem. In the end, it turned out OK.

    But next year we need this thought out. Alchohol, snacks, events... I would like 2-4 people to step up in advance as organizers, and we really need to find a sponsor or two - I don't mind kicking in some cash but I'm sure we can do better.

    It seems early, but if we don't start thinking about it now, then when?

    Your thoughts on this are most welcome!

    I doubt I'm qualified to be an organizer, but I'll happily volunteer to be a grunt. I can schlep things, get supplies, that sort of thing.

    The party this year was a success imo. Played the hell out of ice cold beer while being drunk. Fun stuff.

    It's not a party until somebody finds a dead hooker stuffed inside of the Crazy Climber machine.

    Hey, it's Vegas, anything can happen! But, something more likely would be a dead hooker in a slot machine at the Crazy Horse Gentleman's Club.

    Let's plan it on the "5th Weekend" so Adrian (need the related DP name) can organize the hell out of it. Don't want to piss off the Trop by stealing their club thunder, but then again why not?

    Since I will be driving again I'll volunteer to carry stuff, and get drunk , but not organize.

    Cool meeting and talking with Adrian btw.

    I actually really enjoyed the afterparty (Loving my shotglass!) It was my first one so I have nothing else to compare it to. I actually liked the fact that it was in the expo room because it allowed us to play games and get drunk.

    Though since I don't drink beer I would have liked a better alcohol selection and would be willing to pay a little more of a cover charge to cover everything.

    Also I 2nd Adrian organizing the party.

    So here is what we need to do, first we have to decide who the 4 organizers of the Digital Press Party are going to be. So far I have myself, Noahsmybro, Sothy and Punkoffgirl. If you are all down to commit to planning out the DP Party for 2011, please confirm and let's go the next step Thanks everyone!

    Not sure who can match your handle to your face, but just in case anyone was wondering, this is Jim Combs, who has been a standout staff guy at CGE for the past 4 or 5 shows. Jim is definitely one of those "get it done" people.

    Carry on

    Oh, and thanks to all who are putting this on their "to do list" for next year!

    so I'm gussing that you guys are working doing CGE next year?
    make sure the hotel isn't either set for remodling or demolision.

    Thanks Joe, I appreciate it man =D As it gets closer to show time, I'll help out to make sure we can get DP name tags made for all attending, this will also help identify me better lol and it's great for all the fellow Digtal Pressers (and those who need an upgrade from the tags from years back Good times!

    No worries Kev,

    It'll be great to see ya at the next show, we missed ya this year! Would love to have ya help out so we can add you to the list of helpers. Any ideas you have or if something worked out great in past years for the Digital Press parties, please feel to share =D I'm cooking up some ideas as well and can't wait to work together to make a kick ass Party at the next show. So to recap, here are our organizers of the 2011 CGE Digital Press After Party:

    1. Noahsmybro
    2. Sothy
    3. Punkoffgirl
    4. Kevates
    5. Digitpress Jim

    Between the five of us, let's start thinking about who would like to contribute what to the party? That way we can assign those responsibilites to that individual. Most importantly, wherever the event is held, we have to make sure the beer and pizza arrive on time so let's make sure we do some research of the area of where the next CGE will be held =D

    That's all I have for now, thanks everyone! By the way, if anybody is down to be an extra helper on call just in case something should happen to one of us or if one of us can't make the show, it would be great to have you ready to fill in. But above all, we need to work as a team to make it happen and have some fun! Thanks everyone =D

    I'm not sure how big of a help it is, but I can bring a couple cases of brew.

    It sounds like there was a delay on that.

    I may not be able to organize anything, but I seem to have a habit of being a party starter, so if you want me to, I can buy a couple cases to get it started until you guys bring the other stuff.

    Well next time I go, as long as it is not in Trop, I was going to just stay in the hotel that the show is held in, so I can keep the beer cold there and just put it in a duffle bag or something. I don't know, I will figure something out.

    Please do not plan on me bringing the entire party some brews for the entire night, but I will definitely bring something to get it started at the very minimum.

    Sounds great man! No expectation at all of bringing beer for everyone, we'll totally have that coverd for the whole group. I love the idea of you having some starter beer, that's great! We'll make sure the beer is on time so everybody will have plenty
