North Texas BYOAC Meet! SuperAuction 8-13-05!!!
« on: June 16, 2005, 03:37:21 pm »
**see the last posts for 8-13-05 details.  most likely lunch at Hooter's**





*Official Plans*
July 16th

Meet at Chipolte's on 377 at 11AM
HEad over to Tornado Terry's at about noon or 12:30

see ya'll there

*Official Plans*






Attention DFW and all surrounding areas....I've been made aware that it's been too long since our last get together.  Well let's fix that.

This is good timing too 'cause we have a bunch of new guys, which is a great thing. 

Let's start posting up some preferences.  Last time we did it on a Saturday.  Had some lunch and went over to Tornado Terry's.  A great arcade in Keller with classics and he is a great supporter of BYOAC wth his parts (and my first cab)

A great afternoon would be Babe's Chicken Dinner House and then all you can play  at Terry's.  Although a burrito and straight to the aracade worked for me last time.  WE'll meet up somewhere for some good discussion, questions, possible answers and good company.  Xcalibur, just make sure you say hi to the guy in the yankees jersey.  ::)

The first couple Saturdays in July are bad for me and Nanuu.  any other thoughts?

How's the  end of July beginning of August sound? 

July 30?

Sure, that's good for me as long as it's after July 11th.
Next I'll be on fries, and that's when the big money starts rolling in.

yeah, I like Chipolte's ...it's good and cheap. 

Aug-6 could work.   

anyone remember when the auction was last year? middle of the month usually.  we should be okay. 

more merrier, bring everyone that's into arcade games.

wanna get a Ms Pac Tourney or something started?  I only say that cause I beleive my highs score was untouched that day.  ;D

although I didn't see anyone else play it  :(

it was champ edition and I had my game on.

Count me in, I am all over it.  Thanks for sending me the link NY.

Babe's rocks, I mean absolutely kicks --I'm attempting to get by the auto-censor and should be beaten after I re-read the rules--.   I would be down with the Chicken Dinner House but anything is fine.  I think it is more about the company than the consumption.

We like to plan ahead so let me know by at least the Thursday before it goes down!  We are pretty poor at setting dates on the calendar but have a lot of flexibility.

Can't wait to meet all the people I haven't had a chance to meet yet, just let me know!

Thanks guys, I have really enjoyed becoming a part of this community.

I'm up for just about anything yall can come up with. Just don't let me forget. I have a habit of forgetting stuff when it's that far away.

... and I'm not dragging cabs halfway across the metroplex unless somebody's buying!  ;)

If my brother comes, though, you gotta play nice. He looks at the whole arcade thing as more of a business than a hobby. He thinks it's cool and all, but he doesn't get into it like we do. What we all might consider just a fun day out, he might consider business networking. He can't help it much, though. That's just the way he is.

Oh, and don't get us confused. We're actually twins.  I think I forgot to mention that part! :)

Has anybody sent notes to Chemixtry and EyeDoc about this thread?

Mmmm, speaking of buying.  Are you selling any spare parts there Mark?  At one time I actually thought I had a good collection, but it turns out I am a meager amateur  :o.

That I know of, eydoc, eavii, flampoo, tmasman, haghore, seanp and chemixtry are also in DFW.  Not sure if NY has sent them PMs as well.

No worries about setting up business links.  How else are we to get our parts/cabinets in the area?  Oh, no worries, we can tell you apart.  You'll be the more geeky one  :laugh:.

Some were even asking me when i can build them one. One of them asked when I wanted him to come over and help me finish up my cab. I figured he was joking. 2 days ago he asked me again.

I will need some assistance mounting my fluorescent light and figuring out how to mount the marquee...

X

Get used to the helping others build once they see yours  :-\.  Helping guys on the board is an entirely different matter though  :).

The lights are a piece of cake.  Get a 18" under cabinet light from HD or Lowes for about $8 and just stick in in there ($6.99 at Walmart too).  Then get a 12' section of drop ceiling wall angle at HD for a $1.  Spray paint it black and you are good to go.  Cuts easy and is super super cheap.  If you don't want a whole 12' section I can bring some to the meet .  I seem to buy it pretty often. 
Next I'll be on fries, and that's when the big money starts rolling in.

it's gotta be a business to somebody...my money seems to always be going somewhere  ::)

Chemixtryis in Portland doing some super secret chemisitry phd stuff for Intel

and Eyedoc will succumb to the peer pressure...although he does have a very good newborn excuse :D

(Though, come to think of it, I remember seeing some swords in his house. Don't need to end up on the wrong end of that argument.)

hey guys sorry I've been out of pocket for a bit...

anyways I'll combine all the dates people have mentioned were good for them and we'll see if we can pin down a date

so far just from what I've seen lately the 30th seems to fit most people's schedules.   

I'll chart and graph it and put it on a TPS report for you guys in the morning.

Okay, just sorted through the posts. 

We wanna try and get everyone there so we may have to push this one out, no real rush, but it would be cool to do.  Okay here's a wuick snapshot from this thread and PMs I have gotten.....

here's what dates had  few objections (<=1)
July 9
July 16
July 30 (although MarkVP and his controls should count for 10 votes, so we might not want that day!)

Aug 13th and on looked  good too, but we gotta look out for the auction date. SA doesn't have it on their site yet.


was the 16th a problem date?
