I'm down for Friday only because I can't guarantee I'll be in town Saturday night. If people aren't going to be able to make it until Saturday then I'll see if I can move stuff around. Pizza night is the best night!

I can probably arrange that and bring it down on whatever day. can't promise it will still be hot by the time I get there (i'd imagine a 35-45 min drive) but it's definitely doable since it's a 20 minute drive southeast for me ;)

Sadly not gonna be able to make that weekend, going all the way out to Alaska for a friends wedding the prior week and not getting back until July 1, and definitely don't have it in me to drive there for a day and back ;(

I may try to pop in on a stream if you guys do another though

Bump!

I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it yet, but I'm penciling this in. Sadly I don't have anything to bring but it seems like you're pretty good on that end anyway. I don't play shmups or any other video games too much these days, but I've been wanting to hit up this place for a while anyway.

Looking forward to this. Still have to figure out sleeping arrangements. Was anyone else coming from out of the area and looking for rooming?

Bump!

I haven't been on the forums forever. I do have a hotel place for anyone that needs to stay over.
And don't worry we're still running this meetup, I'll be there. :D

I'm thinking I'll come in early afternoon tomorrow and probably head back home late at night (late night/early morning turnpike driving doesn't bother me, just boring). But I'll bring a change of clothes and whatnot in case I change my mind and stay for Sunday. One thing I learned about myself from previous Chicago Carnivals is that two days of shmupping turns my brain to mush.

Thanks for organizing the meet again beatsgo. Had a blast.

Spent 2+ hours recording progear runs seeing the st5 boss once within 200k of my high score and failed.

You wreckin galuda in hyper mode was fun to watch
Majik setting a mars matrix score
Zerst competing like the beast he is
Davey who no longer shmups on the reg fighting larsa in futari bla original on his first try (so sick)

And of course

Again, awesome time hangin with yall

To those who have been wondering for awhile sorry if I haven't been keeping you guys up to date on our local meetup.
As of now I've been putting it off due to work and it's coming more apparent that I'm don't have that much freedom around my schedule.
For now, I will be on hiatus as a host to this annual Giordano's Pizza Meetup. Until I get things figured out on my end or someone is willing to step in for the time being, I will not be hosting meetups.

But if people still want to hang out please PM anytime. As a matter of fact just post here for things happening around the Chicagoland. I still want this part of the world to be active and continually keeping contact with each other. Most importantly I want to be part of this great community that keeps me drawn to the appeal of being with people. 'Til then, see you later cowboy.

Thanks for checking in, dude! Unfortunately I must let you (and the rest of the crew) know that I have relocated to the Pacific Northwest for residency. I'll keep checking this thread and if you guys are doing something when I'm in town, you know I'll stop by. But give me a holler if you guys are ever in the Seattle area!

Hook up with KevinDDR, great guy to hang out. He got a good arcade setup at his place.

Not really about shmups, but I'll be down there next weekend for GGA's T20 Tournament.

I was thinking of stopping by, as I often do, but this year's game selection is pretty weak to me. What games are you planning to focus on this year?

Tournament games haven't been announced yet AFAIK, though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
