    Who is going? This is going to be my first year going, I've wanted to the past 3 years, but I haven't been able to. This year I am definitely going!

    Maybe if we get enough interest, we can get a section going. :D

    I may be down. Is QC any good anymore? Are there even games that you can play over LAN?

    Will be there as usual for I think the 6th year in a row. As for LAN based games, even all the ones that require internet access (Starcraft for example) are accessible (they have fast internet finally) and it's still a different experience playing them with someone next to you even if it technically isn't going over LAN.

    Well BlueFox since your the experienced one, you need to tell us where to sit when the registration starts, so we can be together!

    I've been once -- sadly I didn't get to do any gaming as I came late.

    Wish I could go this year, but I work Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sunday (blows)

    It's a nice setup they have going - funny enough being 31 years old and keeping a weird work schedule, even one day of LAN partying screws me up. Damn getting old, and get off my lawn!

    There are tournaments that you can sign up for, but the majority of people bring their own computer and just play games with others that have done the same.

    Took me nearly 3 hours, but I managed to get my spot. Worst year yet for server issues. They need to upgrade their Pentium 4s...

    I'll be the team lead for "Crimp-Nation" and cabling this year. Volunteering might help you with getting a seat at QC. Hit me up, and I'll provide more details.

    All of the paid registrations are now sold out, but you still can get a free pre-registration badge for general public attendance.

    Well I wish I could join ya, but I had to back out. My job got hit by the government furlough, so my pay has changed quite a bit for a couple months. So I can't make it :(

    But I hope ya'll have fun, hopefully next year I can make it :( (I say that every year :mad:)

    Yeah I went by last night for a couple hours just to check it out. Was fun, the vendor area is alot smaller then I thought it was going to be though. Not much was going on though.

    Guess the BYOC is really the only reason to go year after year. Weren't many speakers or anything either. Kinda bummed about that, but I still will be going next year for the BYOC. :)
