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:

I feel you man, sorry to hear you won't make it this one :(

-Closed the poll...and we're going to do Dangun Feveron Time Attack Mode for our Scoring Competition
-Hotel room booked, let me know if you need a place to crash

Ah, DN you will be missed!

Just a question or two and a reminder.

Please sign up for the Twinkle Star Sprites comp on the google doc (it's on the second tab if you can't find it)! If you are going to bring anything at all, let us know too.

Now for the question: When is the meetup exactly? I remember it being Friday and Saturday with pack up on Sunday last year. Also, what time does it start?

Thanks so much, beatsgo for organizing this. Can't believe it's finally here!

Come in anytime today in the afternoon, I'm arriving a little bit late to drop off the equipment before I pick up my new BVM. Today and tomorrow the meetup is held when GGA is open to closed. Sunday is open to noon.

Dangun Feveron and TSS competitions? Man, even though my shmup days are mostly behind me, I regret not being able to make this. Maybe next time. Hell, I still haven't made the pilgrimage to GGA yet.

not sure there was a stream tbh.

I just wanted to say thanks again for putting this together beatsgo. It was a lot of fun.

there was a big shooting game scoring tourney for the general pop on the main arcade floor, had beatsgo's nac and bvm20f1u, a GGA LCD and CRT TV, fun as hell twinkle star sprites matches even though I got wrecked nearly every match up. fun times on raiden dx (infinite lives!), mushihimesama futari black label another ver, ibara, dangun feveron, gokujou parodius da, battle garegga (holy 7th stage run zerst), psyvariar 2, tetris the grandmaster etc..

set a new (recorded) score run on progear, got to stage 6 of dodonpachi for the first time, watched the bro beatsgo wreck some gradius iv and other peoples' runs on g-darius and dimahoo...and had a blast ending the night in some windjammers matches. oh, and giordanos ofc. pretty stoked for next years (majik - pumped to see you eventually nab that 19xx score!)

*Extremely really late post about the meetup, you've been warn*
Really appreciate you guys attending the meetup, as always thanks to Doc and the GGA crew for allowing us to borrow part of the console room to run our setup. I've been considering the next meetup to coincide with the next shmup tournament, so I'll be in talks with Doc this week see if and when this will happen.

Yeah hopefully I can make the next meet. Got another week off at work next year, so hopefully actually scheduling it isn't as much of a pain this time around.

I had a chance to talk with Doc 2 weeks ago and seems he'll definitely want to schedule the next meetup coincide with the next shmups tournament at GGA. Let's make a list of suggested dates for the tournament and we can from there.

Double post!

Doc is asking me when we should hold our next meetup/competition this year. I'm hoping around summertime would be perfect for us.

I take boards in June 1 and start rotations June 14. Any time in those two weeks would be great. I think I'm free weekends too so let's make this happen!

Hmmm, maybe June 10-12 then. I'll create a Poll to see which weekends of June will work for everyone.

I'm definitely down if we get the date known this far in advance this time, at least for Friday, possibly Saturday. Where do most people stay at when they come from out of town for these meets now?

I live in the Chicago area so my drive isn't bad in any case, but I'm curious where people from far away stay now since drboom moved away. Do people get hotels or something?

It'll be nice to get a list of what stuff people will be bringing/want others to bring as we get closer, so let's keep this thread going. I've got just about everything as far as console shmups are concerned, from retro to modern and can bring a good amount of it in my car, including CRTs.

OP, you might also want to change the thread title specifically to something like (2016 Meetup dates!) or something so people know we're using this old thread for 2016 as well.

Thread title updated

@MachineAres 1CC
I've been providing hospitality at hotels for the past meetups since I partially took over hosting the event though I would like to stop doing that and actually have my own place. Depending on how this month goes, we'll see if that would be the case once I get a new job.

the only thing that's rough is that brookfield is a good 20-30 minute drive from the city otherwise we could have used my place in wicker park last year.

regardless, I'm looking forward to another fun meetup.

I'll be bringing
Spoiler: show
PCBs: battle garegga, dangun feveron, ibara and will possibly bring futari bl another ver and armed police batrider if no one else is

I would suggest taking metra but getting to union station is going to cost you more from where you currently reside right now. Ever thought of using Uber/Lyft?

been staying in lakeview 4-5 days out of the week and a couple days back in Mokena, so union station wouldn't be that big of a hike. I also have a monthly pass for it (that I pay an absurd amount for). The only tricky thing will be dragging along the PCBs but I might be able to borrow a car for an easy ride in.

galloping ghost has battle garegga now... so it looks like I won't have to bring it this year unless we want to play it on the candy :D
that'll basically leave me with dangun feveron, armed police batrider, and ibara.
