Well that was fun. Moving on...
Dtoid MidwestNARP 2011 UPDATE!
I know, I know. I've been horrible at updating this. Information has been trickling into the forums thread, but I know not everybody chooses to follow that, so I apologize. To start things off, here is the new confirmed list.
Silgrim (and maybe his better half)
Jesus H Christ
KD Alpha (and gf)
Holy fuck, that's a lot of people. We are really toeing the line here of needing to book a hotel room for overflow sleeping room. Of course if you just want to do that on your own anyways, feel free to do so. Contact me and I can get you a list of hotels in the area. Also, due to the turn out so far, I'm going to have to call a cap. Once this list hits 30 people, that's all I'll be able to handle. Sorry about that, but next year I'll try to have an actual venue.
Ok, now to the updates and changes.
First off, I regretfully must announce that there will not be tshirts this year. I never expected so many people to express interest in attending, and as the initial cost of tshirts would have to come out of my own pocket they just aren�t feasible. Don�t fret; I�m working on several other things to make sure everyone has a souvenir to remember the weekend with.
Secondly, the Cedar Point trip is no longer an option. With so many people flying in as opposed to driving this year there simply will not be enough vehicles. This week I�ll be scouting area arcades and other similar locations for a Saturday day trip that will be ideal for multiple trips if necessary. I�m really sorry if you were looking forward to Cedar Point. One the plus side, you�ll save a good chunk of money, and we�ll more time to drink and play games.
One more thing, and this is big. This year the Midwest NARP will be hosting DESTRUCTATHON! It�s essentially the same thing as PAX�s Omegathon, except everyone
will be able to join this. In the end though, there will only be one winner. The winner will walk away with a prize pack that we are still working out, but rest assured it will be awesome.
Here�s the line up:
ROUND 1: TWISTER
ROUND 2: LEFT 4 DEAD 2
ROUND 3: MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3
ROUND 4: SUPER MEAT BOY
ROUND 5: ?????
And of course, each round will have a unique twist�
If you do not wish to enter, let me know. Otherwise I am going to assume everyone aside from myself and IcarusKills (because he brainstormed this with me) is a competing DESTRUCTANATOR.
So that�s it as far as updates. Just as a reminder, the DTOID MIDWESTNARP 2011 takes place at my home in Toledo, Ohio on the weekend of June 10th, 11th, and 12th. You can keep tabs on the forum thread
for up to the minute information. Also, please please PLEASE shoot me an email at jonbloodsprayATSIGNgmailDOTcom with your travel info, or with any questions you might have. Seriously, email me either way, because it would makes things tremendously
easier for me.
That�s all for now kids. Party on.
