Summer 2016 Party in PA *Official Sign-Ups*

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

 

Welcome to the official sign-up page for the Summer 2016 Northeast LN2 get-together and party! Based on the initial polling ( http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=154838 ), looks like we're getting a really nice crew together!

 

Meet old and new friends, put faces to the nicks, learn from those with more experience (have people to share the misery if you blow something up), bench like crazy and generally have a great time. Everyone from monster benchers to noobs, vendors and just regular folks curious about overclocking are welcome.

 

The primary sponsor for this event is Corsair who has kindly offered to cover the cost of the venue plus 2,300L of LN2! Thanks out to steponz for getting us hooked up and a HUGE thank you to Corsair for their super-kind support!

 

When: July 23, 24

 

Where: The Clarion Hotel & Conference Center, 148 Sheraton Dr., New Cumberland, PA 17070

The Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Harrisburg West

tel: 717-774-2721

 

VENUE/ACCOMODATIONS:

We're booked for an 1,800sf room which will be laid out with tables. Although it has the most available power of any of the venues we checked, attendee benching locations will need to be load balanced. Depending on the number of attendees and what everyone's is running, may need to buddy up and bench in shifts or some other scenario.

 

The hotel blocked out a decent number of rooms for us at a rate of $89/night. The code for the reduced room rate is "Overclockers Party".

 

IN ORDER TO GET THE $89/NIGHT RATE, YOU MUST MAKE YOUR RESERVATION BY CALLING THE PHONE NUMBER AND GIVING THE CODE. You cannot get this rate if you book on-line.

 

The reduced rate is valid for Friday and Saturday nights only. If you add a night (or more), those would be at whatever the regular rate is, Friday and Saturday would still be at the $89/night rate. If people know that they'll need extra nights, let me know and will see about getting some rooms blocked for that(those) night(s), too.

 

To help folks save on expenses, please reply to this thread letting us know whether you're willing or want to share a room with someone.

 

There will be full wireless access as well as wired. Do any of you have a switch and maybe a bunch of cables they could bring along? Figure wireless is fine for posting results and general websurfin' but the wired would be great for live streaming.

 

SIGN-UPS:

In order to sign-up, please reply to this post and (as best as possible) include the following information:

- # of attendees- Bringing anyone with you or coming solo?

 

- Will you need a room? Would you be willing to share a room with another bencher?

 

- Hardware you hope/plan/expect to bring for benching- The more information you can provide before the event will allow for better advanced table assignment planning.

 

- Any equipment you can bring to loan or will need to borrow

 

- direct link to your hwbot.org profile page (if available)

 

Additionally, please send me a pm with the above info plus your email address. Once you've posted here and sent me a pm, will add you to the list of confirmed attendees.

 

PARTY SCHEDULE:

Friday 7/22:

- early arrivals, maybe all get together for dinner and/or drinks?

 

Saturday 7/23:

7am-9am: Party check-in, table assignments and hardware setup

9am-2am: BENCHING FURY

 

At 2am, we'll clear out and the room will be locked down until 8am on Sunday.

 

Sunday 7/24:

7am-8am: Check-in, socializing and setups

8:00am-4pm: BENCHING FURY part deux

4pm-5pm: Shutdown and get the h3ll outta Dodge

 

DONATIONS:

Thanks to Corsair, there is no charge for attendance. That said, as the amount of LN2 covered is fixed, I'm proposing the following suggested donations:

 

- 2-day Bencher: $25

- 1-day Bencher: $15

 

This is a strictly not-for-profit event and a donation is not required! All donations will be used for additional LN2 (as needed) to ensure that there is plenty for everyone. Any and all residual funds will be given out as prizes for TBD competitions during the weekend. Again, no donation is required for attendance...if you can swing it and feel like donating great otherwise don't worry, be happy!

 

If you want to donate, please send your your funds to me via paypal at scbesterman@NOSPAMhotmail.com (remove the NOSPAM). If you could include enough to cover fees, that'd be very much appreciated!

 

Once I receive your funds, will add how much you gave next to your nick in the official attendee list. My preference would be to show any/all donations given by each attendee so that there's a public accounting/record. If you don't want your donation amount listed, please let me know in a note on your paypal transaction.

 

DEWARS, ETC:

Any dewars, dispensing hoses, etc people can bring would be great. Just makes things so much easier. I'll bring my dewar, a dispensing hose and some thermoses.

 

COMPETITIONS:

Looking for ideas on possible weekend competitions! The competitions should be highly tilted to favor folks who have never benched cold and/or people in the Rookie, Novice or Enthusiast leagues. LN2 should be a must in order to compete. Since running vgas cold adds complexity, thinking the focus should be on 2D's only (with separate competitions for intel and amd)? Still early days and we have time to figure out details but all ideas and thoughts are welcomed!

 

TEAM BANNERS & OTHER REGALIA:

Bring 'em! :)

 

LOANER POOL SIGN-UPS:

Since this event is open to all including people who've never gone cold, we're looking for folks who'd be willing to provide extra hardware (pots, mobos, cpus, ram, psus, keyboards, mice, etc, etc) for lending to any new people who may not already have them.

 

If you have equipment you'd be willing to lend, please let me know and I'll add it to this post. Hardware for lending will (hopefully) be available by 10am Saturday (it's up to the person lending the equipment) and will be on a first come, first served basis.

 

VENDORS:

We're also seeking vendors to come and demo their latest and greatest as well as pitching in for weekend giveaways. If any of you have contacts and be willing to try to get them on-board, that'd be awesome.

 

LIABILITY WAIVER:

Benching and liquid nitrogen come with certain risks. All attendees will be required to sign a liability waiver accepting those risks before being assigned a table or benching.

 

============================================================================================

If you have any questions or thoughts, please don't hesitate to post here, send me a pm or email me directly at scbesterman@NOSPAMhotmail.com.

 

Look forward to seeing you all there and stay tuned for updates!!!!

 

Best Regards,

-Stefan

I'm 90% sure to go but still need to ask the wife's permission....lol

 

I'll will be driving in from Kingston Ontario (6 hour drive) and may try and convince @Trouffman to join me.

 

I booked a room at the hotel from July 22-24 already and the rates are now $119/night for a King size bed.

 

Plan on benching 6700k on MOCF and BWe or HWe on x99 SOC champion / x99m killer.

Maybe gtx 1080 and/or older gen gpus.

 

I plan on bringing all my bench setup including Dewar if Customs officer allow me to pass.

Never did border crossing from Canada to USA with bench gear.

Looking forward to see you all!

Nice! Good luck talking Trouffman into it (well, after the conversation with the wife that is hehe). What about Johan45? Doesn't he live somewhere near you?

 

Sent you a pm on the room rate. Did you tell them that you're with the Overclockers Party? I just called to try and make a reservation...$89/night base rate (plus taxes, etc...my room came out to something like $194-198 total for 2 nights).

 

Also sent the sales contact an email (it's after hours so won't hear back until tomorrow) and the GM will call me this evening so will get this resolved asap.

 

Awesome you're bringing stuff, hopefully the crossing's smooth. Great point on the 'bringing the dewar' thing, adding to OP.

 

UPDATE: Did you book for more than Friday and Saturday night? If so, Friday and Saturday should be $89/night and the extra nights at whatever the rate is (maybe $119?). If you got charged $119 for fri/sat, just need to call them back or send them an email (or I can call for you). If you have any trouble, ask for the GM (pm me for her info).

 

You sure that 119 rate you got isn't CAD? ;)

I'll be there but probably won't bring as cool of hardware as the rest of you due to I don't think I'll be able to get a decent LN2 pot in time. We'll see how that goes.

 

Hardware:

DFI 939

Asus 478/478

Asus AM3/FM2

Asus & GB 1150 (possibly)

Asus 2011 (possibly)

Single stage

Watercooling

Old dewar that's never been used (if needed)

As many monitors, keyboards, mice I can get ahold of

 

Probably will be bringing a non-OC friend that is interested but will double donate for the both of us

I know steponz and turn n' burn are flying. If there are a few people I could ask the hotel if they'd shuttle folks to the Philly airport for a decent price.

@marc0053 Did you get your room rate issue resolved? The problem/issue is that in order to get the $89/night rate, people MUST make the reservations by phone and give them the code.

 

OP updated to reflect this requirement.
