[fft] Lan Anyone?

<div class="IPBDescription">just in the idea phase right now</div> If we can get enough people to come to good ol' Oregon for a LAN.

Our goal is 50 people, if we can beat that so be it, but if you live on the western half of the US, or like to travel, please drop us a line at fft_clan@hotmail.com, or PM me in the fourms, OR reply to this thread. Any way you cut it I would like to actually MEET some of the people that own me like a pair of tube socks. So if we get enough people to come play it will happen.
<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>
<span style='color:yellow'>

Date: Mid/Late May2005(still deciding, Cartman2b is coming in mid May, and we don't want to LAN without him!)

Where: Oregon(exact site will depend on # of people but either in Salem or Portland)

Time: All day, till people pass out on the floor/go home
Things we plan on having:
<span style='color:red'>
With a few live performances by some of your favorite people(or at least Some FFT nubs)</span>
<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> <span style='color:red'>

NS Tournement(yup it's time for another one of those)</span>
Prizes BABY </span>
<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> <span style='color:red'>
CS tournament(or CS:S)</span>
See above</span>

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> <span style='color:red'>
Not Gaming area(brought up to us by someone who actually had some kind of female companion) </span>
The last time we had a LAN we ran into this problem so before anyone asks we will have a nerd free zone for the people who don't want to PWN some NUBS, but still want to surf the web or read or what not. </span>

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> <span style='color:red'>
Ritual Kilalot Sacrifice</span>
we will get his powers(mic spamming losing E-penix to charcoal ECT.)</span>

Any input or ideas for how we can make this lan, a time to remember for everyone so feel free to let me know what you think/if you wanna come.

Thanks people,

    aw that's so cute

    I'd love to come 'cause I love FFT, but it's be a really, really long drive, and I'm not sure my baby can take it. He's just a little car, and so far the longest trip he has been on was 4.5 hours. <!--emo&???--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/confused-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='confused-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    *Edit* Portland would take 45 minutes off of the drive for myself and most likely others coming from the East, but after a 41 hour drive, I don't think it would make much difference. <!--emo&:p--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/tounge.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tounge.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    I need to find a few more drivers to rotate, and then it'd all be good. (Oh yeah if I can get a week off of work.)

    I would so go to that if I get a new car and classes are over. Shoot, I would even kidnap some friends andtake them with me. Show y'all how gaming is done in the Lone Star State! <!--emo&:p--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html//emoticons/tounge.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tounge.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    I would go just to meet kamikazee! He and I used to play ns on r5 before I got a life and he joined fft. that would be awesome, i bet i would meet a whole lot of other people who remember teh infamous McMuffin!

    If it's in may, count me in. And I can get 2-3 others interested. so make it 4

    Right now it's all about the cartypants, who may have exams in may. I'll come though. >_>
  • CartiCarti Join Date: 2003-07-12 Member: 18099Members, Constellation
    Stupid damn exams.. The LAN might be pushed to early June but i'll have to get a list of exam dates before we get a definate date. Don't blame me.. blame the UK education system.

    I'll get a website fixed up with regular updates about this LAN once xmas break comes. If you have any questions, comments or ideas, just post here. I guess this thread can be a planning area untill the site comes active. If someone would like to fix up the site, just drop a PM to Spacemoogle5.

    So far we have a few guests pending. Comprox, Flayra and Ari are currently thinking about it. The current FFT members are looking through travel arrangements.

    So what are you waiting for? If you live near Oregon, sign up!
  • CartmanTwoBeCartmanTwoBe Join Date: 2005-01-04 Member: 32919Members, Constellation
    Flayra changed my name from [FFT]Cartman2b to zuwcsm.. ftw!

    Anyway.. updates..

    We have many attendee's coming along. But the date is changing.. an official date will come along soon once i get my exam timetable.

    Now the new forums are up and i have a clean account. I can begin taking in names on who wants to attend. If you're interested, just give me a forum PM. It'll make it easy for me to create a list on whos going and what the clan needs space wise to rent a building to hold the event.

    Bye <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/smile-fix.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile-fix.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    email me when you have a firm date...I'm totally there as long as it's not in yucky Salem. wifedashv might also attend if there are a good number of non-players.
  • PhannehPhanneh Join Date: 2003-10-29 Member: 22125Members, Constellation
    Is there a minimum number of people you are aiming to get to attend? Just thinking that if you do not have a very high turnout, if you would still plan to have tournaments. Its nice to have NS tournaments every once in a while, but they can get destroyed if there aren't enough teams to play.

    I will *try* to come but it'll all depend on school/work/funding. Might wind up carpooling with TyrNemesis^.

    I was planning on attending, but then a bunch of money just went down the drain which I didn't expect. If there is anyone else going to drive from the Edmonton, AB area, my chances of coming greatly increase.

    I hope you are putting that money up your self there eurotrash.

    I hope to have a firm date in the next week or so, but location will decide everything.

    I would come but oregon is very very far away...

    Flayra has been formaly threatened...er I mean invited. I'll let you know what he says. (/me twists Charlies arm more). I'm looking for local business sponcers ATM I would be happy to team up with any other Oregon residents to hash out ideas and get our network on dog. Oh and I forgot to say Moogle is a *%$*# nub.


    PM me if you are inclined to ideas.

    ****, if it comes down to it I'm game to schwoop Mr. Cleveland from SF, it's a pretty short drive, and you don't really go to far south, plus you can go up 1 and look at the pretty coastline, fangs if Flayra trys to pull a "I don't have transportation" tell him I have his back <!--emo&::marine::--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/marine.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='marine.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Just for the record, I really would love to get to this lan. Origionally I was planning on driving, but a sweet opportunity for me to be able to apply to make 4k this summer came up, and as a poor college student, I can't turn down that opportuinty. So if I get this job I would fly, if I don't I'll drive and try to fill my car with able bodied drivers so the good 41 hours driving time it will take will be divided up more.

    As far as flying goes: Apparently the only close airport is in Portland, so if the LAN is in Salem would I be able to get a ride from Portland?

    The flight I am thinking about would get me there at 11 pm on the 10th, and I would leave at 6:31 pm on the 12th (because I have a training session to be at in the morning on the 13th).

    This would be so crazy, but normally my summers are very boring.

    *edit* if this lan was earlier in June, or later in May it would make things much easier. <!--emo&:p--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/tounge.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tounge.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Man I would love to go, but unfortunately driving from NJ is unreasonable, and flying is out of the question (too much $$$) Anyways I hope this takes off, have fun with it.

    Did this ever turn out?

    :Edit: Yea I'm a ****, I was reading join dates on the side, not post dates above. Sigh.

    I'll go. I'd love to have a LAN of NS with some skilled people, the main reason being that I can be reasonably sure that no one's hacking, and maybe get some skill tips.

    Slap a date down onto the table and force everyone to adhere to it would be my idea.

    I live up north of portland by probably 4 hours, I'm on the Washington State peninsula. I'd be happy to drive someone else if they need it, but my car is tiny.
