Pages are out, so naturally we got one:
GrandLAN seems to be a good fit. Plenty of room, just enough privacy, creepy haunted house attached.
For the first time, grapsf.com met at Gamer Doc. Since we are bringing our own equipment now the cost to play was just $5 a day. Hopefully the new low price of gatherings will mean an increase in attendance, seems to be working so far judging by the great turnout we had Saturday!
The venue is great with the exception of some drunk guy touching my girlfriend and creeping her out. But I have alerted the staff that there will be a public beating next time so hopefully they deal with him.
Also painfully obvious was the fact that most of us would like to stay later than 9pm, hopefully they can do something for us there. I would hate to stop playing here just on account of that one thing.
Our third fundraiser took place at Cake’s house this past Saturday and we pulled in a record $257 this time! The second Evo monitor we purchased made it’s debut, and the next two buys will probably be consoles. We’re almost there!
Thanks to everyone who attended, especially Cake and Hotsauce for hosting at their pad, and the people I’ve never met for coming out of the woodwork, including one who came all the way from Toledo.
We had a new Gief show up, and Dro made an appearance with his Gief. So counting mine, the air was thick with Russian Wrestling that night.
Also while it isn’t 100% yet, all signs point to that being the last time we get to see Kage as he may have to move soon. Glad he got to play instead of just running the venue’s register for a change!
Our second fundraiser was great. It was hot with no AC but we still had a good time (except Holden). Thanks for hosting Kelter!
The first Evo monitor we bought made it’s debut, we got down with some Tekken, shared some brews, watched Holden get salty; it was a great event!
We had our first fundraiser last night and it was more successful than I even hoped! We collected about $250, which means there’s a good chance we will have $1,000 by month-end; all being put to good use buying our own lag-free evo-monitors, so that we will have no complaints with equipment and we can find cheaper venues.
Better equipment, cheaper venues. It’s a great goal, and we have shown that it’s totally attainable.
Thanks to everyone who contributed (and you didn’t even trash my house)!
See you at the next one!
The next few meetings will be fundraisers at our members homes. $15 entry (same as the LAN center we’ve been playing at) but we’re using the proceeds to buy our own communal equipment so that we can get way cheaper space-only venues.
