Followup: Dtoid Raft trip!

   0
Greetings again, Destructoid. I have an update on the get-together I'm planning for next weekend. I want to keep things relatively snappy, so for most of the relevant details, I'll refer you to this thing. This thing right here.



So far, I'll admit there's been less enthusiasm for this than I'd have thought. That doesn't mean we're not going anyway! Even if you can't make it for the rafting, you're still welcome to come for the games and socializing afterwards. I know it's pretty close to a couple of major gaming events, and I apologize for that. I'll keep it short and say that this is the weekend I have off, so this is when it had to be. If it goes well this may have the potential to become an annual event, so if that happens I'll try and schedule it for sooner in the year next time.

Anyway, here's where we are right now. I have confirmation for both the raft trip and subsequent Games and Stuff from the following people:

Myself (duh)
My wife
Crime Minister
Corduroy Turtle
Steezy XL

Now that... that is a brilliant, talented, and dare I say it, devastatingly handsome group of people. It's my understanding that Turtle will be staying overnight, and that Steezy will be making other accommodations. This means we still have plenty of room available for those who'd like to crash overnight. I just need to know by the 8th (That's this coming Thursday) who's coming for the party and who needs a place to stay.

I've heard from the following people (or intermediaries) that they have at least some interest in attending, but haven't gotten firm confirmation one way or the other yet.

Com 01
PhilK3nS3bb3n (if you do make it, I have no idea how to pronounce that. I'ma call you straight-up Phil. Cool?)
Bill Zoeker
Niero

Additionally, Swishiee has said he can't make it for the rafting but will join us for the after party. I should probably stress that this is totally an option for those who want to socialize but don't want to get wet or are afraid of inflated rubber or river spiders or whatever damn thing.

So yeah. If you haven't RSVP'd yet, now would be the time. A comment here would be great, or Mr. Andy Dixon very kindly set up a meetup thing that'll let me know who's coming.



One final thing. I'm not sure who's a fan and who's not, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that Weird Al Yankovic will be playing shows in this area over this weekend, and tickets are still available. If you've never seen Weird Al live, I can confirm that he puts on a great show and you will leave thoroughly entertained. For some reason I can't get the link to work here, but if you google "Weird Al Three Stages" you can get all the venue information. Just something to think about if you decide to come.

Think that's pretty much it. Again, hope to see several of you here next weekend!

About Qalamarione of us since 5:34 AM on 02.16.2007

Hi. I've been here a long time, but I never interacted much. That's about to change.

May want to stay out of the old stuff. I didn't know what I was doing when I started here.
Like most other D-toiders I am male, 15 to 30 something, introverted to the point of social ineptitude, and grew up obsessing over whatever videogames I came across-- somewhat to the chagrin of my parents. I am a moderately slavering Nintendo fan because-- let's be fair... they were easily the biggest influence in my formative years. Because of this, it is my belief that Smash Bros. was created specifically for me. The fact that the rest of you may enjoy it is merely coincidence.

I was interviewed, once.

I used to be the Cblog Recapper for Mondays. It was a good run.

Beyamor's avatar fathered mine's love child at PAX East. It's ok though, 'cuz he gave me a picture of a Kirby as child support. Cheap bastard...



I inspired a song. (Thanks, Alphadeus!)
