Intro:
Winna winna chicken dinna, June 30th-July 2nd it is
Mark you calendars, we got a shmups meetup to be at in Brookfield
Inventory list on Google Drive for this meetup

Accommodation:
In the inventory listing, there's a tab for hospitality. List yourself if you need a place to stay so we can accommodate you.
As always, I'll bring snacks and water for everyone to munch on. Giordanos (Pequods?) pizza dinner TBD.

Fees:
Cost to go in GGA is $20 per day, but gives you access to everything including the console room where we can eat/drink/relax.

Tourney:
In the works

Setup?
My plan for this meetup is to bring my machine on the main floor of GGA. If we can achieve that, I'm planning to bring a small livestreaming setup for people to watch us play some shmups.

Alcohol:
In the works

Previous Meetup Info
Spoiler: show
Chicagoland Summer Carnival - June 17th-19th
Intro:
Wheeeeee, we're meeting up for a Chicagoland Shmup meetup on June 17th-19th at GGA. Be there or be square yo!
Inventory list on Google Drive for this meetup

Accommodation:
Add yourself on the google sheet for those who needs a room. You have until June 1st to notify me so I can book it.
We will have to split the bill, so do mind to bring some extra cash or prepay through paypal.
As always, I'll bring snacks and water for everyone to munch on. Giordanos pizza dinner on Saturday.

Fees:
Cost to go in GGA is $20 per day, but gives you access to everything including the console room where we can eat/drink/relax.

Tourney:
GGA is holding their shmup tournament on June 11th to the 19th, so you have a chance to get yourself caught up and join the tourney.

Streaming?
I'm actually considering streaming our meetup for some TSS. Please let me know if you have a JAMMA fingerboard with video out. We can just connect my gonbes CGA/EGA/RGB to VGA converter to my xcapture device for some good hardy streaming. Otherwise we still have consoles we can stream off of.

Alcohol:
Unfortunately no alcohol, but there's a great bar called Brixie's which is only 3 blocks away. Good place to hangout and relax.

So I know this is super early, but question, would anyone in the area possibly be willing to pick me up/take me to Union Station? I'm kinda thinking of perhaps taking a train up there this time around, but the only train times arrive there around 8PM and then leave at like 7AM. Like I said, kinda early since obviously we have no solid date yet, but just wanted to feel out of that would be a possibility.

I'm car-less, but I might be able to see if I can use someone's car. I'm sure we'll be able to arrange something.


not that you would want to do this... but just so you know (as a last resort), you can also take a train from union station (bnsf) to brookfield which is around 0.8 miles away from galloping ghost.

Seems June 27th is a good pick for this meetup, I'll get in contact with Doc and plan the event accordingly.

Would this be like renting out an extra room of GG or something and bringing our own stuff to play? Or just going to play the cabinets they have out on the floor?

I haven't been to a meet since the 2013 I believe, where we'd go to Logan or dr. boom's house, I'm curious how and where the recent ones have been conducted.

Let me know, as I can most likely go if the date is that far in advance

we had a combo last year. some pvms and superguns/consoles, beatsgo's astro city, a buncha boards, and then we played a bunch on the floor too. not sure if the setup will be the same this year, but you basically pay the $15 for the floor and then it was an additional $5 or $10 for the backroom we used last year.

Cool, that sounds good. I'd more than likely come out for this, just post the details once they're nailed down

Hey guys, just bumping this to say how stoked I am about the meet up. The last one was a freaking blast and I'm ready for this one to be even better. No school, so I will be in for the long haul.

Oh yeah, and barbeque chicken deep dish pizza. Just saying'.

will have Garegga (has since been repaired), Futari BLA (unless you wanna bring yours beats), Dangun Feveron, and Ibara. Gonna leave batrider at home assuming you're bringing yours.

I can bring a buncha console games too but I think DN usually has us covered on that front :D

I'll get a listing up soon of what's going to be brought this meetup. Will have to order new joystick and button parts to make it better.

Game lists/inventory

feel free to update it with your own games/equip or post here and I'll update it for you.

I think we're going to organize 1 or 2 scoring contests this year if we have enough people. Possibly Twinkle Star Sprites and either Dangun Feveron or Batrider boss rush (unless any other suggestions). I can also bring batrider (korean with jpn roms) but I know beatsgo will probably bring his original board.

I'm totally down for twinkle star sprites! We should do the caravan mode for Feveron for sure. I've been thinking about JS: Cardinal Sins, it's ripe for a score chase. I know DN has a few boards we might be able to challenge each other on too.

I guess it comes down to our big challenge from last year: how many people are going to participate.

Regardless, I'm counting the days!

-Doc let me know we're still good for this year, I'm procrastinating a lot due to work and other activities that's not shmup related (*cough* Bemani games at Round1 in Bloomingdale).

-So I'll be booking a room at the same hotel so I won't need to drive up and down the state to get to it. Anyone that needs a room PM me so I can accommodate.

-I was planning all along for 2 shooting competitions. Obvious 1s choice is Twinkle Star Sprites on the Dreamcast, but dunno what's shmup to choice for the other. I'll be posting up a poll by the end of this weekend with couple selection of shmups available to play on.

-@some-mist: can you change the sharing policies so anyone who has the link can modify it? I'll see if Doc can provide a inventory of shmup pcbs he can loan on the list

-OP updated

Quick update:

-Room reserved (staying at the Hilton in Oak Brook, IL). Let me know if you need a place to stay.
-Will close the poll for the shooting game competition. Looks like Feveron Time Attack Mode is the thing.
-If anyone has a xbox 360/ps3 stick, we will be switching to the MVS version of Twinkle Sprite Stars
-Will bring the venerable uhaul van to transport stuff. If you need a ride to the airport/train station while in town, let me know.

Ugh, sadly its looking like I'm gonna have to skip this one :/ work has gotten really stingy with time off, and with me taking vacation last week for another thing, things aren't looking good.

If anything changes, I'm in, but yeah :cry:
