This is YOUR event!
« on: April 18, 2011, 07:56:23 PM »
This is definitely a Florida Arcade and Pinball Collector sponsored event. We want EVERYONE to be involved beacuse this event is really for everyone reading this. If you have any (constructive ;)) suggestions or if you'd like to present an idea, by all means let us know! The only caveat is be prepared to enact it! (or at least help enact it!)

I'm sure some mistakes will be made, this being our first attempt.. but the goal is to make something we can all enjoy. With the apparent death of the Florida Auctions, we'll need events like this (and SPF and APE) to keep the community together. So let's try to make this as good as we can.

This is really cool and a pretty surprising too.  Were you keeping this under the radar or am I just that far out of the loop?

Probably everyone will be bringing games and parts to trade anyways so perhaps some kind of an area for a swap meet?  Might make the place a bit cluttered though.  I could see skipping it if you want to just focus more on the game/expo part.

Also, I figure you thought about an auction but I didn't see anything about in the FAQ.  Have you decided it's more trouble than it's worth?

How come you never see the headline “Psychic Wins Lottery”?

Sounds like good stuff!  I'm also surprised there was very little mention of it, but I suppose "if you get a venue, they will come"

We mentioned it back in February (for the observant!) but nothing has been said since then as we wanted to make sure everything was a lock (it is). No point in hyping it up until we had the location and date locked.

We've thought about a swap meet but logistics may be a problem. I'm not against it though if we can figure something out.

As for other events, certain things are still under the planning stages more announcements to come :)

A couple thoughts:

Will Hercules be present?

Are we doing anything for local advertising? I'm not beneath handing out flyers...I'm already blasting my Facebook.  ;D

Herc -I haven't talked to prok but i would hope so! I know the big guy feels bad about his APE meltdown, time for some redemption.

Advertising - We're working out an advertising plan as we speak. Flyers on International drive is a definite  at least. I'm alrady sweet talking xenoina into getting a chun li outfit. The dave and busters on I-Drive will be open by august so that would be a no brainer! (why pay $2 a game for crap in here when you can play.. THIS!)

How do you feel about green body paint and an orange wig? :)

About as good as you'd feel about a Russian Man-kini with a mohawk and a mustache.  :D

I'm assuming you posted info on the rpg.
Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.
