Stoked... :-)

Never been to an organized show... though have had opportunities to go to several. 

Looks like I'm going to make both Gamewarp and PPE this year... :-)

Look forward to seeing you there Rich. I remember dropping off some parts to you on the way to GW last year and know you wanted to go.

Can't wait myself. This year should hopefully be a little easier on the setup and breakdown.

Also looking forward to Del Taco and Joe's Crab Shack.

same here. I've never been to an event like this period.  I tried to go to a star trek con back in 2001 but none of my friends parents would let them come along(I was only 16 :P). I was too young to get my own hotel room so I planned on just sleeping in my car lol

Last year was my first year at an organized show like this. I was so impressed! The only thing that let me down was the fact I didn't bring more. This year I swore to bring at least 15 games. I'm glad to say I've busted my ass to bring 16 games to the show. I'm so damn hyped out about this its ridiculous. I know its no CAX but I don't live in californi-a and I consider myself of the most extreme cases of arcade infection!! Gamewarp ftw!!

Wow ... 16 games.

I have been busting my ass every night this week just two get two games ready to bring. Granted, one is in the middle of a pretty significant restoration, but still .... that is a lot of games.

Please add me to the "stoked" list ... because I am!

I've only been to one of these and think they are FANTASTIC! Keep up all the hard work, guys! Sad I can't make this one, but I'll just be twice as happy to be at the next one!

I brought my whole family today and we all had a blast.  Big thanks to everyone who made it happen!

Now my wife wants a WH2O.  My oldest wants a TOM.  My youngest wants a Donkey Kong.  And I want a Tron pin.  Time for me to win the lottery.....
