Hey everone - I just relocated to Colorado Springs for work after 20+ years in Chicago and 6 of hosting a shmupmeet out there. I'm down to meet some local STG crazies. Cool if I make the Oct 12th meet? I'd be tentative, as me and my wife are sharing one car and we won't know her work schedule until that week.

My PCB list:

Omega Fighter Special
Dodonpachi
Progear No Arashi
Ketsui Kizuna Jigoku Tachi
Armed Police Batrider - JP Ver. B
Battle Garegga - Nippon zakk rom
Air Gallet
Tatsujin
Twin Cobra
Twin Hawk
Sky Shark
Pyros
Eggs
Out Zone
Gigawing
Thunder Dragon
Thunder Dragon 2
Black Heart
Same! Same! Same! - JP 1P roms
Rally Bike
Strikers 1945 Plus
The Speed Rumbler
Daimakaimura
Cadash
Agent X (early C & D board)

I'd like to make this. I'm new to the area since April. I have 4 PCBs at the moment: DonPachi, Guwange, Ketsui, and Raiden II. I also have 1 cab, 1 PVM, and 1 LCD, but my place is small.

Camp and DrBoom, feel free to come over if you can make it. I have 4 cabs, so there's more than enough room everyone.

I'd love to play some Guwange if you feel like bringing it.

I'm seeing there are quite a few folks down south and we will be meeting up at 120 north. I'm east of downtown Denver. Does anyone feel like car pooling from 1up or 2up?

I'd be up for a carpool from 1UP.

We can start any time after 2PM. Anyone who is coming and needs directions, let me know. I'll have snacks and beverages, but feel free to bring something if you want.

I'm thinking I'll be able to make it. The last two were excellent.

If I end getting my lazy ass out of the house, then I'll bring this board along! I also have most of the Neo Geo and NG:DEV.TEAM shmups in case anyone's interested.

Sounds like this is pretty close to where I'm working and living, so I don't have many excuses to not make this.

You can still make this one Rob :D

If anyone else is planning on coming. Let me know.

I have an MVS cabinet, feel free to bring the NG-DEV games over if you want Camp.

Not Shmups, but I could bring along Magician Lord/Super Spy for MVS if anyone is interested.

Well that was pretty awesome. twalden, your setup is making me jealous, but thanks for hosting that! I love the Joy-Ro. I can't believe all the PCBs I got to play today. My mind was blown a little bit. Its definitely great to hang out with a bunch of gamers, something I don't get to do much. I don't remember the forum names of the other guys there, so either PM me or post here, thanks.

Next time, will I bring empty boxes, or actual games? :)

Big thumbs up! The Joy-Ro is the ideal form factor for the space I have, now I have to find one :)

I was trying to recall with Kevin all the games we played today, here is the list I came up with: Esparade, Strider 2, Pro Gear, Batsugun (regular not special right?), Raiden DX, Strikers 1945 III, Espgaluda II (xbox 360), Dodonpachi Saidaioujou (xbox 360), Ibara, and for MVS Gun Lord + 100-in-1 Blazing Star & Metal Slug 3. Did I leave anything out?

Seeing Candy cabs in person I'm totally sold on the form factor and convenience, I had no idea the monitors could be manually rotated between vertical and horizontal for most of the models.

Good to meet you guys, and thanks again for hosting Tony!

Next time we will play some serious Guwange ;)

I had a great time and thank twalden for being a great host again. Great to meet Camp and his Guwange ghost edition :-P. Those who didn't come missed out on a very good time. Maybe the next Denver meet up can be at 1/2 up. If exidy can't deliver on a shmup at an up, maybe we'll just have to have it at his house :D

Had something come up at the last minute. Bummed I couldn't make it but trust it was a good time as usual. Thanks again for keeping these going, twalden.

Thanks everyone for stopping by again. It was a blast. Sorry you weren't able to make it Garry. Hopefully you can make the next one.

Tony, work has threatened to send me to the IBM campus in Boulder a few times, but it hasn't worked out yet. If I make it up there, I will let you know.

You bet Tony! Glad I could make it, your setup is truly amazing. Something I forgot to ask you was the brands of the 27" monitors you had installed, and what you have found to be the most reliable in the 27" range. Before Saturday I was thinking my a 19" in my future cab project would be fine, but now that I have played on a 27" I will never be the same!

Feel free to stop by if you can. Just need to figure out what day works for everyone. One of the last Saturdays in Mar or one the first few weeks of April should be good for me.

There are a few of us talking about going to the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown on the Sunday the 13th: http://www.pinballshowdown.com . Anyone else going? Can we do the meet up some other weekend than this one?
