Philly Meetup/BBQ - pics posted!

122 posts in this topic

When: Saturday, September 19th - Noon

Where: Our apartment: 1030 E Lancaster Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA. It's in a big apartment building (10 stories) called Radnor House, and it will be on your left up a hill/driveway if you're going WEST on Lancaster. If you're taking public transportation, first get to 30th St Station, Philadelphia (buses, Amtrak and NJ Transit all go there.) Then, take the Septa R5 Westbound toward Paoli/Thorndale. A round-trip ticket should be about $6.50. Make sure you are taking a LOCAL train, not express! You will want to get off at Rosemont. The folks who arrived at our apartment building by car will all walk with us to Rosemont station to pick up everyone else (it's only a few blocks away.)

What: It's that time again! Andy and I moved into a new apartment shortly before getting married, and now we want to break it in... with an OCR meetup. :<

At our new place, we have an Xbox 360 (with HD ReMix, SFIV, BlazBlue, etc.), Wii, board & card games, phat beats, and of course, a huge outdoor patio with a bunch of grills. So, plenty to do just hanging out here! There's also a bowling alley not too far from us, the same place we went as a group during last year's Philly meetup. We thought that was pretty fun, so we can always do it again.

Who's Coming:

zircon

Brushfire & wife

Xenon Odyssey

Dyne

José the Bronx Rican

Sporknight

Epicenter

Katsurugi

D-Lux & gf

Moguta & gf

Not only that, but if I don't get enough donations...I could be the one fronting a large portion of the DKC 2 album printing :? .

Keep rubbing it in, Taucer, and I'll come down there with an entire coach bus full of drunk naked men... :-o Congrats on the new place btw.

I'm interested; just dunno when I can contribute yet.

I do know Phila is a great relief, as opposed to Balt or DC. I'm a virtual definite.

I'm gonna say no on this one... but there's a small possibility I might be able to, since I get paid the day before and I could make the drive. Hm. I'll look into it.

Edit: Never mind. I thought there was a possibility, then I realized the 10 hours it would take to get there. Not on short notice, unfortunately. When I have a bit of cash saved up, I'd consider flying out to do it. (I'm in Michigan... :()

Oh man. I really want to go, but Palp and I will be moving the weekend after that too, so I'm not sure that we'll have time. :puppyeyes: Will have to think about it and talk to Palp about it when he returns from PAX.

I just want to comment in a genuine tone that I've never seen a web community this large that is so open to inviting such a mass of total strangers worldwide and be this serious on attending.

It blows my mind. I won't even let my mom into my apartment and you'd take in any lout from the internet who could conceivably get there for a big party. Even me if I knew how to drive cross-country.

Its frightening and awesome at the same time. Wow. :)

In general, no he's not an a-typical nerd...but he's a pretty awesome musician so hopefully that buys him some cred with the OCR crowd :)

Google Maps tells me I will have to drive 4361km (thats 2710 miles) to make that party. If I leave tomorrow....lol. Geez! Soooooo far away! :sad: I am pretty sure nobody on OCR lives farther north than I do, at least in North America anyway. That will be a wicked party, would have loved to be there, maybe someday I'll make it to a meetup of some sort somewhere. Probably PAX next year...

Don't be scared, it's excellent.

Also it sucks all the OCR action like this happens back east. I would love to attend something like this.

And zircon prepare for battle in SF HDremix. May the best Ken win. :P

I can totally make it there, and Prophet Orwell will probably show too. I'll let him know it's going on. Doing some Fringe stuff would be fun, but I'm a theatre geek, so yeah...

Sounds like a heck of a lot of fun, though! Cant wait to see you all!
