Another meeting in Waterloo? (August 19th -> 25th)

Thread in 'Locations & Events' started by colour_thief, 27 May 2008.

  1. Hmm, this would cost me a lot more than Strasbourg (500 in flights alone - ouch). Having said that, it'd be cheaper than flying to Japan again to play Ti [​IMG].

    I may have to do some serious thinking about whether I can justify the expense - the more people attending, the better my chances of convincing myself it'll be worth it [​IMG].

    In case anybody doesn't know, I'll 99% be there.

    The remaining 1% accounts for possibilities like my car's engine seizing up on the highway.

    Since the last meeting, did you beat my Hanabi 597 on TI ?

    No, I'm still at 498.

    Funny story that one. After playing Easy I was pretty happy with how well I did. After the credit roll, I was saying "Come on 500!"...... .... [game displays 498] "DAMMIT!"

    Last weekend I started qualified S3. After some play I was offered a promotional exam to S4 and passed. About 5 games later I was offered a promotional exam to S5. I messed up bad and flunked.

    But don't get confident. I WILL take a new record.

  5. Yeah, aside from the fact that I'm busy for the weekend of the 23rd, the cost is a pretty big factor at that time of year.

    If I was over 21, I'd hire a car and maybe go for a whole month to reduce the impact of the cost of the flights, but that isn't an option.

    I really hesitate too... c_t, could you post a list of who will be there? Also, one week is pretty slim, is it extensible a little before?

    Hope someone could do the trip with me too... (ok, ya pas amnesia et jago mais je ne suis pas le seul franais!)
  7. I've updated the first post with the current list of attendees.

    I wish I could extend the meeting more, but it's very difficult for me to get vacation at work during the summer. This week was the only one available in August. Maybe if I fight I can get the Monday off too, which would then make it from the 16th -> 24th.

    If it's just like last time then that's ok.

    Good luck camping out in front of a closed door.
  10. Does anyone still talk to Millartime? I've met with him once in Toronto, and he's a very strong TDS player. I didn't have TGM3 back then so he couldn't play well with the double unfamiliarity of a joystick and TGM rotations. If nobody still talks to him I'll try sending him a PM... he'd probably want in on this too.
  11. I honestly wish I could say I still had contact with Millartime. He was an awesome player and a great guy.

    One of the people I used to speak to daily on #tetris who has since disappeared into the void of the internet, along with cosmonaut, Dimon and others. Sully too, but he occasionally crops up here at least.

    Cosmonaut? I could've sworn I saw that guy on Psypokes (another forum) .

    that begins to make me a bit upset to read this kind of thing..

    There is two solutions :

    1 : you banish Ghetto

    2 : try to respect him as a human as lons as he is here..

    If he comes it will be with parents.

    and then he gets to show his skill for real and remove all doubt. [​IMG] Right?

    I'm just talking realistic here. colour_thief has mentioned several times he doesn't want to get in trouble for hosting a minor, and that he isn't interested in babysitting a child when he's got his hands full with hosting the other guests already.

    sorry muf..It was not an agression against you..

    It just that I want there is at least one people who defend him..

    ME I think.. [​IMG]

    I already knew in my life this kind of situation..

    You know in the little school, around 10 years old, when you are a little bit different, you are rejected by the whole class..And it is not a pleasant situation for everybody..

    A) He can't get in trouble if my parents come.

    B) I'll make sure he won't have to bother with me acting up. Besides, I'm alot different IRL.
  18. Frankly, I would not want to attend if it meant constantly watching my own language/behaviour, and being under the constant scrutiny of some kid's parents. (CT is not running a daycare, so they would have to be present at all times)
    Sure he can. There are countless things that could go wrong that he could be held responsible for, even if your parents are in the room.
    This is no assurance whatsoever, especially coming from a child.

    Taratang, you realise he's gone now?
  20. Woops, hadn't read the forum for a week and missed that. Guess I should've read all the new posts before I replied.
