    Default Sunday May 28th - Pinball Pete's meet? (Southeast MI)

    i know it's been done before, and certain people don't really care for the place for meets (here's looking at you ubersaurus ) but i'd just like to see if there's any interest in a little get together on May 28th. and well, i like Pinball Pete's, and i haven't had the chance to get out there lately.

    it's already set in stone that Spoon and myself will be there. additionally, i'm fairly certain each of our lady friends will be attending, as well as a few of my other friends. depending on who shows up from DP, it might also be cool if we could organize a post-pinball pete's meeting place for some home console gaming (preferably in the ann arbor/ypsilanti area!).

    that's about it... gauging interest here... hoperfully this is far enough in advance to get some response and a good little get together will emerge. post if you're down for this!

    Well, one thing is that nobody ever checks the events forum. Another is the date, so if we were to change the date, I bet we can get more people in. I remember that the one in '04 had its date changed a couple times, and it was quite a big gathering as you remember, I'm sure.

    alright, what if we move the date back a bit, and spread the word some more?

    suggestions for a date?

    (i'm still gonna be going on may 28th, for anyone that cares)

    hi chris!

    pretty much all the details of the pinball pete's meet have been stated in the thread already, so that's the deal so far. we're only looking at a small group, but it should be a good time nonetheless. myself, spoon, mr foodmonster, possibly davidbrit, spoon's girlfriend and my girlfriend, and a couple of my other friends. you're more than welcome to join us!

    i'm figuring for an early afternoon meet time at the arcade.(probably 1 or 2 o clock) spend a bit of time there, and then there's the U of M campus to walk through to go check out some other stores (wizzy wig, a japanese novelty import store, and a sweet ass used cd joint too), and there's plenty of food around as well. we'll pretty much play it by ear.

    also, bring a tradebox if you have one!

    i guess that's about it really as far as the meet goes. i'll figure out a firmer time as we get closer to the date.

    lastly, what gamecrazy do you work at? i find some good things in those stores every now and then.

    I could probably attend any arcade meet set up for the weekend. So count me in i guess.

    Question: What do you guys do AFTER the meet? I might be willing to have an "after party" at my home if any one may be interested. I am about 25 minutes from pete's(ann arbor) in the Garden City area. I have pretty much every console from the NES on and if you like to play shooties I have tons of those and can do tate.

    Chris(neonesmaster): Where in michigan are you and what Game Crazy do you work at? I have frequented the Livona, Lincoln Park, and the Westland stores.

    an "after-party" would be pretty sweet actually. from the gamecrazys you frequent, it looks like you're east of ann arbor, so that's on my way home, as well as on the way home for most everyone else

    Yes, I am located east of ann arbor and west of detroit. I'm pretty much right in the middle. I am glad to see there is some interest. Lets see what we can do and make it happen!

    So whats going on??? Anyone? Still set for 5/28? I just noticed its a Sunday. I can still make it as it is Memorial weekend but may have to make some adjustments. I usually do game nights on Saturday nights. Has another date been considered? Or is it just going to be a no go?
