Straight from the words of Ng: "I think we agreed offsiters don't count against the cap, but they should still pay the 150 fee to cover their food expenses"

This refers to anyone who wishes to stay *offsite* at a hotel, campground, friend's house, or similar.  There isn't room for an unlimited number of these but we could probably get away with 5 or even close to 10 for some days.

Some people prefer to sleep offsite as a personal preference.  We've had family groups come who want to be able to escape the house when needed.  If you have any questions about this option we can help.

The best thing you can do if you are at all interested in the event is to post in this topic with your current intentions and then come back to post again if/when your plans change.  The more you share, the better this topic goes.  Sharing your plans on Discord, Twitch, or Text Message is fine too, but the organizers will really appreciate seeing direct posts in this topic.

I'm 100% in, however I may be getting a new job between now and the meet date so if that changes my ability to show up I will try to update as soon as I know I can't make it

Wow, cool. I haven't made any plans yet but I may end up flying in early to visit Youse the weekend before the event. It's something he's mentioned before but I haven't asked him yet...If I did that, would you possibly be able to pick me up on the way? He lives within a few miles of I-95 somewhere between Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Who ARE you?  :kappa:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for me, it looks as though I'm out for this year. Sorry guys.  :-|  You'll have to be my amazing Kart triumph next year. Going to Nashville from August 1st-11th; had it planned since New Years.

BUT.....should some catastrophic event happen that prevents me from going, and a spot happens to be open, I'll go to VA instead. Put me down for 2.5%.  :v
Will be glad to see most of the folks at AGDQ 2019, and VA 2019.

I was hoping this year would be in June again or even mid-July. Unfortunate that it intersects with a different vacation.  :p

This means MGAY needs to take my spot at Gold's for the week. I'm sure Frankie would have fun either way hahaha
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the way. THIS photo is more recent (2017) and BETTER. Look at my long hair; I'm a homeless savage.  :v

Guess I'll wait my turn since it would be wiff, wife, and the wiffster again. Should we be able to fit in under the cap we'd be 99% in.

Is there any sort of deadline for people to sign up so that those of us that are bringing family can sign up?

I think we should make one! *angry mob forms*

I believe the Hutch family has done something where they stayed at a hotel nearby and visited during convenient hours, using advanced parenting techniques like kidshuffling to Make Things Easier.  Not sure if you're interested in doing that but you probably wouldn't count against the Twenty Five Man Capacity if you wanted to go with that route, so you could commit earlier.

Hell yeah! I might be putting up noob weight, but I'm totally down to go.

Maybe if I weren't 5 hours out of the way...

Anyway, I'm in. My work/living situation is (hopefully) subject to change in the next few months, so my travel plans are up in the air for now. I'll make it happen one way or another, though.

Wedding August 18th, highly doubtful I'd get the blessing to get a week off that close to a stressful event for Amber. Not to mention I already have Thurs-Tues off for wedding weekend as vacation days as well.

I'll keep that in mind. So far I don't have any concrete travel plans. I've basically never done the same plan twice to travel to the event so it's hard to know exactly what will happen yet.

Got my time off approved this morning, so I’m 100% in.

Also, I can drive people from Dulles or Reagan as I live pretty close to both. Up 2-3 people if I take my car, up to 4, maybe 5, if I take my parents minivan like last year. I’d rather take my car since going to my parents would be like 1.5 hour round trip, but if we need it that’s an option.

Oh, and sorry Ng but I think you’re gonna lose your Switch bet  :LOL:

Deadline is June 1st.

I'm not exactly sure about whether the non-players list works like a waiting list or a first-come-first-served after June 1st or a "Ngamer invites someone he likes".

So far we've seen interest expressed for:

Wiff's wife & wiffster
Thingy's wife
Nash's wife

As far as I can tell from the topic and spreadsheet, those are all the non-players that have already expressed interest.  There are still some potential attendees who haven't responded yet but Ng, Jones, and Stinson have been hitting the phone lines hard in the last couple weeks to get a clear picture.

That's correct, if you're an Eliter/Karter interested in attending you should post about it NOW (well, within the next two weeks), even if you're not 100% sure you'd be able to get off work or get plane tickets or whatnot.  Otherwise on June 1st the remaining open spots at the house are going to be awarded to the three non-players who have expressed interest (the 3 wives mentioned above).

It's officially June and there are still spots at the house available which means non-players are now welcome to join!  Thingy, Nash, wiff, if your wives are still interested in coming please post so and we'll lock in their spots for the full week at the Lakehouse.

As for myself I've got to get back to Wisconsin ASAP after the meet so I'm currently planning to make a speedy getaway Saturday morning (like I did in 2016), which means flying in on Monday and renting a car for the week.  Haven't booked my tickets yet but I'm leaning toward arriving

6pm @ DCA

and anyone else at the airport that afternoon is welcome to ride in with me.  I'm likely going to be leaving the Lakehouse early on Saturday to catch a 7am flight out of DCA, so I can also give rides back to the airport if anyone else is interested in taking an early flight.

Flights booked!

Will be flying to Philadelphia on Friday 27 July afternoon to visit House Youse for a few days.

Tentative plan is to ride the mid-afternoon MARC from Perryville to DC Union Station and take the DC Metro to DCA airport to ride with Ngamer, who has offered us seats in his rental car.

Return plans are to fly out of DCA on **SUNDAY**, we are going to stay in DC on Saturday night just for fun.

Nate is from OK.  He drives or flies depending on the year. My guess is he is planning to fly this year but that could change.

Austin is from TX/OK but might not be going this year.

B. Ray is from OK too and seems to be flying.

Some BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS this week!

- Mark Jones has confirmed he's IN, tickets purchased, and in fact he'll be at the house quite a bit longer than in recent years (arriving Wednesday afternoon rather than late on Thursday evening)

- Trent's not 100% yet, but Jones says he's leaning toward arriving on Wednesday aft as well and if so the two of them will drive in together

- legendary Karter and current #9 in the world Jamie White would like to attend, but his car is dead.  he says he'll pay a cool 400 American Clams to anyone who can stop by Pittsburgh to pick him up on the way.  do we have anyone coming in from the North who could grab him?

- I locked down my flights tonight, arriving 5pm @ DCA and flying out of DCA @ 7am.  also, with the original restriction lifted a "special someone" has expressed interest in flying down with me for the full week, not 100% confirmed atm, more on the situation as it develops!

You can get round-trip plane tickets for way less than $400, and I'm sure me or josh would be willing to pickup

So far there are 22 who have confirmed they are planning to attend, with a projected max capacity of 25.  Since we are past the June 1 deadline, both gamers and family can sign up to come if they are serious about attending.

At this point it's basically a first come first served situation, but we aren't requiring a deposit/payment to reserve your slot either.  In Ng's words, a "firm commitment" is enough.

Sorry I've been really busy. I just had to get a new job and I wanted to make sure I could still get off for VA. Down side to a new job is that this will be another unpaid vacation which sucks but im just thankful that I can go. :)

I can bring everything again but it depends on how many people I will need to transport. I spent a lot last year renting a van and I don't mind doing it again but If I bringJamie White and Brittany I cant bring as many crts. I could always rent a trailer for around $150.00 probably but I'm not sure if the van I rent has a trailer hitch. Also I will try to be saving money on this trip so I would rather not have to get a trailer as well. I don't think we used all of the crts I brought last year but I don't remember. I have plenty to bring so if I could get a number it would help.

As for picking up Jamie I would be happy to because $400 is really tempting to make a drive out to Pittsburgh but its 6 to 7 hours out of the way. Brittany will not want to turn a 3 hour drive into a 9 hour drive. At my last PA meet Jeff Martin (dirtyharry44) took the train from Pittsburgh and I looked up prices and it would be about $130.00 roundtrip. So that is always an option for him.

As for Brittany she still does plan on coming for the week but she might just come for half of the week because she has had some things come up. I will try to find out this week on the dates she will be there.
 I cant wait for VA this year  :nesquik:

It shouldn't be completely on you to bring the TVs. I don't mind kicking in some money to help offset the cost of getting stuff there, and I'm sure we could convince some others to as well. We should probably talk about how many CRTs we will actually need so you don't have to do more than you need to.

As for Brittany she still does plan on coming for the week but she might just come for half of the week because she has had some things come up. I will try to find out this week on the dates she will be there.

Also, FYI, there appear to be only 2-3 open spaces and there are currently ~5 people (including Brittany) who haven't really given a solid confirmation. Since it's already June 1, I'm pretty sure it's first come first serve as long as you provide a solid commitment. PSA for everyone really.

Just got a confirmation from Brittany she will not be able to come this year because of personal family issues. She is ok but is unable to attend and might make it a bit easier to plan now that she won’t be on the fence about coming for the whole week or just half.

Hi guys. I'm interested in attending the play-ins. I wasn't able to find the address. I live in Richmond so I was hoping to be able to drive down each day, but I may need to board my dog depending on location. If it's not public info then please just PM me. Thanks in advance.

The meet location is approximately 1 hour or 60 miles northwest of Richmond Airport so if you are closer than that you can easily travel back and forth. We have had non-sleepover guests in the past and also people who come for the play-in and may or may not advance to the main tournament.

You would probably be asked to be present by a certain time on Tuesday for a play-in match. Activities tend to continue beyond midnight and restart around noon each day, if that works for your schedule.

The address is not shared publicly because it is someone's home. We can send it to you once you're confirmed to be coming. Are you a member of the Mario Kart Players Page? If not, you might be placed in a play-in for the play-in as an unseeded, unknown player. But if you have a resume that can bump up your starting position. See the MK64 tournament thread for more information.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I figured about the address. I live in Glen Allen, VA which is considered the West End of Richmond, so hopefully not too far away.

I am not a member of the Mario Kart Players Page. A local Barcade recently started running N64 tournaments and it's reinvigorated my love for my all time favorite game, Mario Kart 64. I don't mind being unseeded. And if I had a resume it would be on Battle Mode anyway. :P

Who is the best person to connect with to exchange info?

Thanks again, looking forward to it.

GOOD NEWS everyone, I've secured a true Ringer!  My friend from GameFAQs is the two time and defending champion of the big Kart tournament a PAX West, and this year he was able to secure enough vacation time to join us at the Lakehouse.  I explained that moving from PAX to the VA playing field is like going from the minors to the major leagues but he thinks he's up to the challenge.  We'll find out soon enough!

Menji's going to ride in from DCA along with me and Thingy 1 and Thing 2, but we still have room to take one more person (if we rent a larger car).

We are now exactly FOUR WEEKS from arriving at the Lakehouse!  Things to consider here in the final month:

- everyone should sent their $150 to the Ws, use paypal and ship it to dweatherton AT the electronic mail service provided by Google.  you could also pay in person, but it's nice for them to have it in advance when possible

- we need to find someone who can pick up Trent at IAD at 6pm Monday evening

- need to find someone who can pick up Brian Ray at RIC at 5pm Monday evening

- need a confirmation from Qwec and to hear his travel plans

- same for Beck Abney

- same for Austin, Jamie White, Leone


Then for departures...

+ need someone who can drive Menji/Thingy/Soph to DCA on Saturday afternoon

+ need someone who can drive Jones and Mgay to IAD Saturday afternoon

+ need someone who can drive Brian to RIC Saturday at noon

All accurate. Additionally I have 1-2 more car spaces for the trip to and from the lake house. If you have a flight to DCA around these time OR a flight to IAD by 10ish Monday (lol) or with an hour of the 6:30PM flight Saturday, we can work something out. Just let me know, I live in between both airports so it’s no big deal

Additionally, our current plan is to get to the house around 2pm on Monday, gonna steal all the good beds and then maybe try and get the stream setup. :afro:

In a surprise twist, Thingy helped me find a reasonable fare, and so I'm coming to VA last minute after all.

I am visiting Youse in Maryland the weekend before (like Thingy is), then heading down to DC alongside Thingy to ride to the house with Ng on Monday.

My flight leaves from RDU at 5:14pm Saturday, I plan to ride with DK as that airport is on his route back home.

I can bring my TV and console for an extra station. Do we need power strips or anything else like that? Do we have tables to put the TVs on or do we need any of those 6ft folding tables? Chairs?

I don't think chairs will be necessary. Probably don't need tables either. Anyone who worked with the setup last year who can share more?

Hi guys! My name is Scott - Abney let me know about your tournament today. I know it's a bit last minute, but I'd love to drop by and check it out if possible

I live right next to IAD if anyone needs last minute transportation. I can also bring equipment if needed, I have some good broadcast stuff.

I run the gaming program with a national non-profit and have been a Twitch streamer since 2013. I've dabbled in speedrunning TWW and Animaniacs for SNES.

Thanks!  :azn:

Hi Scott, if you'd like to commute in to compete in the Kart tournament you can, but you'd need to commit by the end of the weekend as we're currently locking down the roster and matchups.  If you just want to stop by and see the stream setup, watch some live matches, etc, you're certainly welcome to.

I think we're going to be set for broadcast equipment, but if you're able to bring a CRT or an extra N64 and your own controller, those might come in handy.

The first Kart matches are going to start around 7pm on Tuesday and we'll be playing around that time on Wednesday/Thursday as well.  Let us know what you decide.

As Ngamer said, if you'd like to be considered for play in matches, make sure and commit this weekend so we can get you entered
 It's a lot of fun.


I will try to get word from Mark and Lance about playing as well

So I should be able to show up Monday afternoon or evening and stay through Wednesday evening! I'd love to join in the kart tournament (I doubt I'll make it farther than round of 16 so we should be good).

I can bring two N64 controllers if that's helpful

Looking forward to it!

Okay Scott in that case we can assign you a slot in the tourney, just two things to be aware of:

- if you make it to the Round of 16 you might not be able to leave until pretty late on Wednesday (around midnight) because we'd have to move what would normally be a Thursday match forward one day and it could be the last event of the evening

- if you're staying overnight, bring $150 for the house fee (this helps us cover meals and other expenses)

Yeah definitely, I'll bring cash. Do I need to bring a sleeping bag, etc?

If I were you I'd just bring my favorite controller, cash money, toothbrush, swim suit, towel, pillow, and sleeping bag.  That way you can be independent and crash anywhere.

EDIT - Check your pms for more info.

My back says "thank you!" My 27" CRT TV is a bit of a monster.

VA 2018 is NOW LIVE, Abney got the stream up and running a little bit ago.  The official tournament matches will be on Abney's account to help viewership, practice rounds and everything else will be on the main Elite channel.  Check the top of the first post for those links and be sure to follow both.

Hopefully not my only highlight of the tourney but can someone clip me beating Frankie on KTB? It was the 2nd set of matches on Warmups on Tuesday on the main elite twitch channel I believe. 54:15 mark of the 3h57m clip from 7/31. Thanks! :)

Does anyone have access to do this?

Also, do you have discord, Uno?
