I know its way WAY early, but I think it never hurts to plan ahead. I want to make a brainstorming topic of community ideas for the next LanSyndicate. Feel free to throw anything in. They can be ideas we had implemented last time and you want to see again too.
Here are some ideas I had:
Irn Bru (I want it so bad I'd be willing to pay for it out of pocket if need be to have it at the event.) Also it would have to be the US version.
Arcade Machines. We could either have someone actually bring some or have someone set up an emulator with some controllers. We could have micro tournaments too.
Drawing Contest. This could be a fun even for a prize where everyone in the community votes for a winner who gets a prize. Also some of the pieces could be used for clothing designs. Two birds with one stone.
"Irn-Bru and Diet Irn-Bru have been formulated since 2002 by A.G. Barr plc to meet the regulations for food colouring of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Ponceau 4R, used in the UK formulation, is prohibited by the FDA. Barr uses alternative food and drink colourants manufactured by a U.S. company approved by the FDA. The product labelling also meets U.S. labelling standards on nutritional information and bar code. Compliant Irn-Bru is solely imported by Great Scot International in Charlotte, North Carolina, who supply distributors and retailers throughout the U.S. It is only supplied in 500 ml." -Wikipedia Because the FDA is the FDA.
