May NARP edition: Wedgecon 2k10

Hey DtoidSF!

Its the month of May, and that means we have to start planning our monthly get-together! Luckily, we have an AMAZING event happening this month, and this blog should be coming out in MORE than enough time to make sure you get there!



As most of you know, Wedgewu is an awesome community member. (Look at this cake her and Clarence made for Capcom!) She is so amazing that this month, she is organizing what will be aptly named Wedgecon! Here is the info from the facebook invite!

'Welcome to Wedgecon 2k10!

For the first time ever, I will actually hold Wedgecon on my own instead of tacking it onto another event. :) The history of Wedgecon traces back to 2007, where a bunch of drunk idiots declared GeForceLAN to be otherwise titled "Wedgecon!" And from there, we have travelled to Quakecon and PAX and now we are at the place where it all began... San Francisco!

Basically I am planning this out to be a NARP/Get-together that will last the weekend. Lots and lots of videogames, of course, and other crazy things. This will be a conglomeration of the three communities I have grown to love: Destructoid, PMS Clan and Scorehero. :)"
