Mikeapalooza 2019
« on: August 13, 2019, 09:53:53 am »
Okay boys and girl(s)?

This is the big one for 2019

September 14th is the date for my 45th birthday party.

I am not sure what is on the menu yet.

New for this party will be a SF II CE tournament.

First prize is fifty bucks and a plaque with your name on it.

I will also hang a plaque in Alpha Centuri with your name and the date on it.

No more excuses. This is your shot at glory and immortality. Get your asses out here.

Mikeapalooza has just been elevated to hootenanny status.

A forum member has finally gathered up the intestinal fortitude to commit to the party.

You locals should all hang your heads in shame. He is making the 1800+ mile trek from the West Coast.

Damn is it that far?  :o

Wouldn't miss it Mikey.    :gobama

Now to figure out how many games I have to play to get my cost down to $0.25/play. ;)

Just eat enough food and drink enough booze to offset the cost of the flight.

I am working on a laser project for a friend. I figured I would test out a file to use for the Street Fighter tournament trophy. It needs some work, but it's not bad.

The menu has also been established. My buddy is going to take over kitchen duty for me.

Pizza is on the menu. Thin crust cooked on a 3/8 inch steel plate. Deep dish cooked in a cast iron skillet.

You have to be out of your mind not to attend.

Well you aren't going to have much competition.

My friends are casual gamers at best.

It seems like none of the BYOAC locals are showing up.

Of course one of them might button mash you into submission. Maybe I should include a drinking handicap in the competition.

Yeah. This could get ugly.

My daughter volunteered to chauffeur us around on Sunday if we decide to go to the arcade and the bars next door to it.

I've heard that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- actually works.  Maybe call in one of those buses from Vegas.

I have a doctor buddy, who is a heavy drinker, that does this on drinking nights.  He taps his arm before heading out to the bar, then comes home drunk and plugs into the I.V., no hangover in the morning.  Medical folks call it a "banana bag".

Bison is borderline broken in CE. Just torpedo back and forth, very difficult to avoid chip damage, if the Bison player can time it decently.

I will see if I'm free that weekend. I'm up here in Shorewood, WI, so it's not too far.

Yep, Shorewood is right on the lake. Of course, my house is not right on the lake. We do live close to our favorite liquor store, so we have that going.  :cheers:

Bring a six pack of Spotted Cow with you. If Uff-Da is in season bring a case and I will reimburse you.

This is the last bump before the latest party.

Beer, food, games.

Arroyo is making the trip all the way from California. Watch him drink whatever you put in front of him.

You don't want to miss this party.
