UPDATE2: The official sign-up thread is here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=170495 Harrisburg, PA July 21st-23rd, 3 days of benching fun with a great group of other benchers :)

 

UPDATE: This will be a self-funded party. We'll have no commitments or expectations other than our own. A party for benchers by benchers!

 

Hi Folks!

 

Welcome to the official sign-up page for the Summer 2017 Northeast LN2 get-together and party! We had an outstanding time last year so hopefully this year's will be even better! Meet old and new friends, put faces to the nicks, learn a lot, bench like crazy and generally have a great time. All are welcome!

 

Based on feedback and last year's experience, this year we'll be holding the party at a venue in downtown Philadelphia. Should make it a lot easier for people who're flying in as well as giving more to do locally for spouses and other not-interested-in-overclocking-but-there-nonetheless people. This year, we'll also be doing 3 full benching days. Hotel check-ins will start Thursday afternoon. The ln2 will be delivered Friday morning and we'll be benching Friday morning through around 5pm on Sunday.

 

Again...last year was a major blast! Hopefully you'll be there! :)

 

Best regards and looking forward to seeing you all,

-Stefan

Slight chance I might have to fly out Sunday the 16th, but I shouldn't have any issues with the 14th and 15th. I'm about a 1 hr drive from city center. I've got thermos and a CPU pot. and an open air benching station and a few other bits that can help.

I can scrounge up a few monitors too bring along, nothing fancy but they work. If we have a good count of what is necessary I will appreciate it so I am not overpacking.

I'm in since I couldn't make it last year. Just working on if the GF will be attending with me or not. Either weekend works for me this far out.

 

Sub'd for updates :)

 

EDIT:

Also, since I'll be driving, I'll pack up as much as I can to bring out.

I might be able to come this year! Our schedule is pretty busy for those dates but there is a possibility I can make it happen.

Will make it for sure. Flying in from Germany going to have to keep it light not to many extra's. Will need a room, and the wife is will be with me so no can't share the room.

Short drive...beautiful. Please let us know if somehow, some way you could also do the other weekend. Just trying to find any flexibility to make it work for the most people possible.

Awesome. Thanks man! Had a couple folks that needed loaners last year, these could definitely help.

 

@funsoul you got mail

 

Thanks Peiter. Checking with a couple other folks, will get back to you shortly. :)

 

I am very interested, missed last year.

Not 100% sure if I can make it yet.

That'd be awesome! Would be great if you can make it!

 

I have a 25L dewar with no dispenser.

That'll definitely come in handy!!!

Yeah man...hope you make it this year.

*cough*free*cough*air...dude...you gotta make it work! ;P (don't mean to be pushy...just sayin' it'd be fun)

 

I will be stateside from mid-June, not sure if I can stay a whole month but I'll try to make it happen :)

Please keep us posted!

Perfect. Look forward to seein' you again! You were SO dedicated to it last year! (as opposed to me who seemed to spend more time kinda hangin' out hehe)

Let me know if you want a passenger to help chip in for fuel, I'd be happy to drive to your neck of the woods and roll with you from there !

Was hoping we'd get more sign-ups/votes by now but am also concerned about the tight (and evaporating quickly) timeline.

 

Going to write something up for Corsair this coming week. Hopefully they give us the thumbs up. If not, we may be back in Harrisburg and have to fund it ourselves. If it comes to that I'll post up quotes for both Philly and Harrisburg venues and we take a vote.

 

If everyone tried to get at least 1 more person, I think it'd get us to the right attendance range.

 

Thoughts?

Have not found anyone to drive with and too far to do solo. Lets get dates figured out so I can book a flight, the price has already gone up $30 in last 2 weeks. Since I'll mot likely be flying el cheapo Frontier airlines probably wont get to bring much. I'd guess whatever I can fit in carry-on, maybe 2 mobo's, one pot, few cpu's, 2d gpu, maybe 980ti kpe or legacy w/ mods, several kits of psc, sammy, bbse, hypers etc. possibly psu in checked luggage. Most likely splitting room with Strong Island whatever days he'll be there and trying to figure out the rest since only affordable flights leave on Thursdays and return home either Sunday noonish or Tuesday same time. Just need Allen to confirm yes and all of Caseking US will be there :P .Lets get some more definate yes's going guys !

Lets get it locked in guys. If you know of anyone just planning to stop in for a day, please send them this way and get some votes cast! Looks like the 14th-16th is what it should be.

Too bad you arent close to me I would pick you up on the way. either way we can try and plan it so I can pick you up and drop you off at the airport and you can save on some transportation costs.

 

I have a durango, so I can bring you a dewar to use and you can share some of my stuff.

 

I was worried about affording it but if I can drive and share a room, cost wont be much. I was so disappointed missing last year, I have to go. I still have never met anyone in person.

 

I see how much closer people get after they meet in person so I am excited to go to my first event. I feel left out sometimes.

Awesome guys! We'll get something together one way or another. Absolute worst case, we'll be back in the same place as last year (Harrisburg, PA). Hoping it doesn't come to that but will keep you all updated as things develop.

 

Sent our proposal off to Joe. Hopefully he can get a quick turnaround from Corsair.
