    Why don't you send me your email in a private message, and we can talk more about what we did in the past that seemed to work?

    Cool meeting and talking with Adrian btw.
    Is Adrian actually a member here?

    I want to sing Still Alive in Rock Band. They won't let me do that where I live, because I have a high pitched voice that may break glass.

    It would also be nice to stock something besides beer for us pussies. I drank all Skaar's rum. Yo Ho Ho.

    Why not do kind of a BYOB thing like most parties? I brought a bottle of 10cane that went and am happy to bring another bottle next year.

    I had a good time this year, even if I was drunk before the auction started

    Cheers!

    Alrighty everyone so Punkoffgirl and I touched based and she provided me with some very awesome ideas for the Digital Press After Party that have worked in the past. So here is what we are gonna do, below is a list of responsibilities for the next show's After Party, if you can please respond with what responsibility you would like to volunteer for and take charge of. I will then continually update the forum as volunteers sign up for each responsibility. We can use multiple volunteers so free feel to sign up for whatever you would like even if some else already did. The more helpers we have the better =D

    Thank you so much in advance, we greatly appreciate all your help. So here is that list everyone:

    -We need a couple volunteers especially if you are locals to Vegas who can make the beer run before or during the auction, it's important the alcohol is at the After Party before it starts.

    -We need a couple volunteers who can make the Pizza run before or during the auction, it's important the food is at the After Party shortly after it starts (so it stays hot).

    -If anybody is able to donate snacks such as pretzels, chips, popcorn, etc. Danny (Dart Vader) are you out there?

    -We need a couple door people who can collect the After Party entry donations as well as manage the door giveaway prizes.

    -We need someone who can maintain the After Party sign up sheet. Should we host the party in a Suite, it's important for this person to make sure we do not over book the After Party according to hotel regulations.

    -As has been Joe and John's tradition, we will totally keep with that and be sporting 80's music at the After Party. We will need someone to bring a portable CD boombox so we can jam like it's 1985 =D

    -Someone had mentioned bringing a Rockband set up for everyone to play, which sounds extremely fun if anyone wants to bring there set up. Please keep in mind though your equipment will be used by random party members, running the risk of getting things back broken.

    -And of course and probably most importantly we need some extra hands helping us set everything up for the after party as well as the cleanup process.

    This is a list of the basics and as we need help in others areas, we will be sure to post it here. Thank you all once again.

    Hey All!

    As always, will be happy to lend a hand as I have in the past including this last after party. I take part responsibility for things getting started late this year, so I'm all for the planning of next year to make it an even better after party. Being a local to Vegas make it easy to help get things going. If you need anything, please let me know. - Daryl

    Thanks Daryl, always a pleasure seeing you at the show and we appreciate all your assistance! We would love to have you help out at the next after party especially being a local so it would be great if you can assist us with the beer run or point us in the right direction of where to get some nearby. I'll be in touch as the it gets closer to the next show =D

    Danny AKA Darth Vader hasn't worked for the chip company for about 5 years. So don't count on those.

    Also the best way for beer is to get it Saturday during the day, borrow a couple plastic totes from the DP booth or museum area. Fill the plastic totes with bags of ice and beer. Then you don't have to worry about coolers or filling the bathtub with beer. Plus it is cooled for 5+ hours.

    I landed a job in Vegas and will be a resident there in two weeks.

    I am sure that I can lend a helping hand wherever needed

    Awesome! Thanks for the heads up, we greatly appreciate it. That is great thinking, we'll totally make sure some one makes a beer run during the day and have that tasty brew pre-chilled for everyone to quench their thirst after the exciting auction =D

    People mentioned rock band, well, alot of people, so I should be able to pull out my rock band 1 set since I don't care if anybody fucks up my old drums.

    once i get situated in Vegas, I will go over the list and volunteer for a couple things.

    Do not mark me down as an organizer, as that is too much responsibility that I honestly do not want to deal with, but seriously tack me down as a volunteer for something.

    I am more than happy to have people beat the shit out of my rb1 set, so you can put me down for that. I would probably not bring it to CGE since an entire day of it getting beaten is worse than a night of drunkards beating on it. You can tack me down for that. I don't have many 80's songs, so if somebody else wants to bring their 360 and hdd, we can use my set for that.

    I also would not mind leaving during the auction and picking up brews. There is a list earlier about what kinds, so I can go based off of that. Depending on how you want to do it, I can get it all in one shot, but I would need somebody to go with me so that I am not carrying case upon case by myself.

    I am a local too. Daryl and I are the ones that made the beer run. I think I can speak for him that he and I would like to take full responsibility making the run (hopefully before the auction cause we don't want to miss that) in time for the next CGE after party. My only concern is getting it too soon, and the beer being warm by the time the party starts, so hopefully we'll have a fridge again that we can load up before the auction begins.

    I can also of course help with whatever type of setting up and clean up is needed afterwords.

    Oldskool, thanks man for taking on the beer run! I have you and Daryl penciled in to do the beer run at the next after party. Here is what we will do, we'll send you and Daryl out to make the beer run before the auction, that way nobody misses it and everyone can enjoy the awesomness of the auction! And still have that tasty beer waiting for them

    I'll make sure we have a fridge lined up like we did this year or at the very least we'll use big ass tubs and fill it with ice to keep the beer cold. Either way, we'll totally make it happen. Thanks again for taking this on this year, much appreciated.

    Skaar, while kegs would be most lost logical and ethical, I think the hotel may have a restriction on something like that but I will none the less look into it to make sure.

    Thanks every one. Keep that input coming =D

    The nice thing about not having Kegs, is that you can get a variety of beers. For instance, someone requested dark beers, so we picked up a dozen. If we buy a Keg, everyone will have to drink the same thing, which they may not like.

    Perhaps during the day I will look at the list of people attending the after party, and see if they have any special request for beer. Anything other than beer (Whiskey, Vodka, Etc) I am assuming will have to be purchased or at least the money fronted for it before hand - then we could pick it up for ya.
