Quakecon has an official discord chat server this year that we can all use. Here’s the link.
You can find more detailed information here.
We’re mostly sitting in the same area as last year, there a about twice as many of us registered as there were last year too. The Orange dot is me, and the yellow dots are us. There are actually more of us than that, but not everyone has the exact same clan tag. It’s not important, but if you can I’d suggest everyone change their clan tag to ‘Tek Syndicate’ (no quotations), then we’ll all show up under the same color.
Yea, so this post is MEGA EARLY, but it’s never too soon to start planning!. 1st let me just thank everyone again for coming out to QuakeCon 2015. I’ve always wanted to attend the BYOC and you guys gave me the perfect chance to do so. I wouldn’t have wanted it an other way. You guys are great!
Dates for QuakeCon 2016 are August 4th - 7th, but registration dates have not been released yet. However you can bet your ass I will be updating this post as soon as they are. In fact this post will be updated frequently as new information is available regarding QuakeCon 2016, so don’t expect this specific post to stay as is.
As risk of repeating myself (because I know a lot of you already know this) I work within walking distance of i.d.'s offices here in Dallas (Richardson TX actually). @DeusQain has kicked around the idea of going even bigger next year. Not that I think we’ll have to, but if necessary I could stop in and try and reserve a nice large area just for Tek Syndicate Members. We’ll see how that goes or even if it’s possible. But the proper place to go would probably be this page… http://www.quakecon.org/contact/
@Logan I know you guys are super busy. Just say the word and I’ll do what ever it takes to get this handled (except pay a gazillion dollars for everyone)
The banner from last year is still in perfect condition and can be re used in 2016. I’ll just cover the “2015” with “2016” and it will look good as new. It was a bit of trial and error getting the frame built but now that we’ve done it once next time will be super easy. However If anyone wants to bring some rope lights or LED strips to line the frame then please do! Just keep in mind we don’t wanna go over board and the banner isn’t the primary focus, we’re just there to hang out and play some Quake! (And other games! duh!)
HILTON ANATOLE BUILDING A WATERPARK?
As you can see in this link, the Hilton Anatole will be adding a waterpark that is supposed to be done by Quakecon 2016, soooooo bring your swim trunks I guess! http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2015/10/12/hilton-anatole-to-build-15m-resort-style-water.html?ana=lnk
Hope we can make next year even more fun than this year, and that’s one tall fucking order!!! See you at QuakeCon 2016!!!
