Next LanSyndicate Ideas/Brainstorming

#1

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.

What kind of ideas do you guys have?

All I want is full scale banana warfare lol.

Also (this probably wouldn't happen at all just thinking out loud here) on the topic of warfare, some sort of Nerf war or water balloon fight would be equally cool :)

laser tag game / airsoft tag.
party could be placed near or besides on open air (heads would be covered by bar type umbrella's)
\/ like here

cables can be secured from rain etc... its easy :)

~ could be placed somewhere in the middle of USA instead on far end / corner. This way everyone is equally close or closer... else everyone is far away or on spot.

I would love airsoft over nerf, but I doubt it would happen... It would mean more waivers lol.
It would be awesome if it did though!
I totally agree. The middle of the US is probably way better.

Laser Tag (We should do this):

"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.

ISP that is not Comcast

week long event (would be nice but not necessary)

nerds with guns thing like penguicon (I could help with that hehe)

ISP that is not Comcast

needs more glowsticks

need dedicated livestream of just the main room

need better drone footage (personal goal)

ISP that is not Comcast

need to be in summer time so I am old enough to drink, (and so more students could go)

having LAN in hotel would make it so we all dont have to see the sun for three days lol

not that I live near it or anything, but you can get 10gbps in downtown Detroit, also Renaissance Center has hotel and convention space

not sure about their internet tho

just my 2 cents

This would be the best option tbh.

I wouldn't mind if the weapon thing was off site for easier legal reasons. That would save Logan some headaches probably for potential legal issues.
