Title: Quakecon 2008 aka K4H 10 Year Anniversary
Post by: Holocaust on April 23, 2008, 12:19:25 am
I would encourage anyone and everyone that has anything to do with K4H/GPI to try to attend this event.  Should be one hell of a time if we can get enough people there!

http://www.quakecon.org

MESQUITE, Texas - April 22, 2008 - As temperatures begin to rise it's time to start planning the ultimate summer vacation to THE must-attend gaming event of the year - QuakeCon 2008. That's right! The world's greatest gaming festival and party will take place July 31 - August 3, 2008 in Dallas, TX at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. As always, this event is FREE to all attendees thanks to the incredible support of the QuakeCon volunteer staff, id Software, and the event sponsors and exhibitors.

QuakeCon will once again host North America's largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN party, as well as an expanded exhibits area with nearly 60 companies demonstrating their latest products. Of course, it wouldn't be QuakeCon without highly-competitive tournaments for serious cash and bragging rights, parties, contests, entertainment and announcements.

Registration for the BYOC area will kick off at 9 p.m. ET on April 30, 2008 at www.quakecon.org.

The Hilton Anatole is now taking room reservations for QuakeCon 2008 through their custom QuakeCon reservation page or through their toll-free reservations number, 1-800-HILTONS. To receive the specially negotiated room rate of $137.00 (single, double, triple or quad occupancy) and the special daily self-park rate of $5 (regularly $15 per day), you must request the group rate for “QuakeCon 2008” or book through the link above when making your reservation. The hotel requires a $50 non-refundable deposit on group reservations, which will be credited to your final room bill upon check-out. Rooms at this special rate are limited.

Companies interested in receiving information on sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities should email [email protected]

More exciting details about QuakeCon 2008 will follow. Visit www.quakecon.org to stay on top of the latest information. Plan your travel, reserve your hotel room and BYOC spot, practice those gaming skillz and prepare to be blown away by another awesome QuakeCon.

lots of drinking, you can play any game that isnt strictly online play (like WoW), vendors are there, seminars, free giveaways, they usually have guitar hero/ rock band tournies, master pancake theater (like MST3K), workshops... more drinking.

I go there for free stuff.  Somtimes there is something good.  But the main computer area is filled with so much BO that your body feels like it gets coated in some horrible layer of salt and filmy shit.  Like you just got done working out except you were just in the room.  Yet I will probably be there for at least a couple hours one of the days.

I'll likely show up for at least a few hours, as I've never been to Quakecon. But, for me, BYOC is impractical, and useless, anyway. I'm just not that good at games.

honestly, hes right.  you play for a few hours here and there, but usually at night after getting back from dinner and drinking at like 10/11 you play til like 4am while continuing to drink.  quite fun.

bringing your computer is fun especially with the amount of people we have going.

By the way, I just heard about the COD4 tournament. What's the deal with that?

By the way, is K4H all sitting together or something? I'm kinda running / organizing the Something Awful Goon table, so I won't be able to join, but I am bringing a projector and screen so maybe we can show the famous Holo video if anyone still has a copy, or hell maybe we should make a highlight reel from our various old demos, mix in some photos, set it to some good music.

I guess my invite got lost in the mail :)

You gonna make it or not?


Anyway, I am looking for some folks to volunteer at Quakecon with tomorrow, if this sounds like something you'd be interested in shoot me a PM / email / call me / etc.

Also, I got my projector and screen today, so we can do some fun stuff if you guys show up over at GoonTown at QuakeCon.
