@funsoul What is the deadline to confirm assistance? And there is a limited number of "slots" (maybe 20 people is maximum for room occupation or something)? Regards

Hey!!! Thinking of coming?!? That would be awesome dude!

I'll create an actual sign up thread in a week or 2. The space has room for 24+ benchers so no issue there. Think I'll ask each confirmed bencher for $210 to cover the event space and ln2 (actual quote for the ln2 is still pending,  I left a voicemail today as a follow up).

Think we'll accept attendees up until about a week before the event.  If we add extra people and the per person cost drops, I'll either pay people the difference between the $210 and whatever the final per person costs come out to or we'll spend it on food, beverages,  a cash prize or something else we all agree on.

Hope you can make it!!!

Maybe. Need to figure out flight tickets. This year I already travelled to Portland/Vancouver so I need to save money for expenses. I know i have to bring my own stuff but what happens with big volume peripherals like the display monitor?

I and others usually bring extra monitors, psus and peripherals so you'll be all set.  We'll make sure to figure out who can bring what for others in the sign-up thread.

I will not be able to make it this year :( I had a total blast last year and realized that I had brought WAY TOO many items to try and bench in 3 days :)

I wish you well on this years party :)

Ewwww... sorry to hear that MM :( It was awesome meeting you, the wife and daughter last year. Hope everything's ok with you. You'll be missed.

Quick update- I should have the formal ln2 quote in the next few days. If it's in line with expectations,  I'll get us locked then create the formal sign up thread. Woohooo!

Hiya Bones! Seeing your comment made me think "where the &@&! is our ln2 quote?!?".

Just shot another follow up email to our supplier.

We're definitely on. Venue is booked and paid for already. People can contact the venue to make reservations. (I'll add the info to this post tonight).

Thanks for checking up on this!

Yes sir...that's the plan except Thursday,  in addition to setup, we'll meet, eat, drink and be merry. Targeting Friday 7:30am for ln2 delivery then we be rollin'.

 

Depending how merry my Thursday is, may need a volunteer to cover me for tank delivery,  delivery guy schmoozing and tipping. You /r guys seem much more sane than me, maybe 1 of you guys could do it if I'm miserable?

It's nerdchristmas! Ho-ho-hooo!!!

Not being able to buy alcohol makes it a lot easier to wake up the next morning without a hangover ;)

Updated the first post. 

Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Harrisburg West, 148 Sheraton Dr, New Cumberland, PA 17070 tel: (623) 432-0765

You'll have to call in the reservation and tell them the event name (the hotel asked me not to post it in the open so our rooms don't get picked off by discount searchers). Sending you a pm :)

I'm debating about making the trek over. 8 hour drive. Don't know if I'd bring any hardware as its still my rookie year and trying to see what I can do here before moving up. Definitely want to check out the action though.

You should come (and bring a setup or 2!)! Really fun and great group. You'll be stunned by how much you can learn from the experienced folks there!

 

PS- Got our ln2 quote! Opening a sign-up thread shortly!
