    It's pretty much a means of flagging a geo for people to head to so that they can assume people in the area are Forums folks .. considering the attendence of the BBQ .. finding Forum members in the crowd is becoming much more difficult.

    Forum Members hat voted for having this at the BBQ: be thinking of a good way to flag off an area.
    Everyone else: be thinking of this nugget that came up in IRC .. how difficult/costly would it be to purchase 300-400 water pistols?

    How about we just beat on anyone who wanders into our circle of pain? :)

    Two forum meets for the price of one- what a bargain...

    That's the deal folks.

    Thursday 5:00pm
    We're gonna try to split out a table at the TBBQ for folks to meet/greet if desired. TBBQ starts at 3pm with some folks running for food and some folks in the park getting things started: sub-events/contests will start rolling [see also Titanium Chef! and chat with Deviant about your participation] .. the anticipated Hooch Wars also comes to mind, .. and of course much more) TBBQ goes until 10pm give or take. Keep in mind that TheSummit starts at 9pm .. so going from the BBQ to the awesome annual fun-draiser is a pretty suave move.
    Is this like Lunch in High School when you have to sit with your "group"?

    Hmmm.. I wonder if the table is the "Cool Kids" table or the "Losers" table?

    Works for me! Last year by the time I made it to the forum meet everyone had gone (or maybe they hadn't shown up yet). But I was a lot more busy last year.

    .. but what back on subject, the 5:00pm informal pre-Forum Meet allows you to hook up with folks at the BBQ before the event really kicks in, make plans, have good times, find pyr0 and hug him for his stylish 23 post count! .. general stuffs.


    Friday 8:00pm
    This is the real shindig. Thanks to Nikita's awesome room-fu, the Official Forum Meet will be held in room 115 .. approximately until 11pm. Why this timeframe/location? Having the official Forum Meet onsite allows for the greatest concentration of forum members to meet, regardless of how early they fly/drive in; or in the case of Goons, how fucking over-busy they are running the great thing that makes us all show up to begin with. The time reflects the same goal, while avoiding too much cramp on the talks but not competing directly with the B&W, Hacker Jeopardy, or the craze of amazing parties that happen. Quite honostly its getting nearly impossible to schedule anything at Defcon without conflicting with something, so play your pawns right and hope your spare liver will not thank me in the morning.

    If you don't like it, show up to the Forum Meet on Friday night and bitch me out. If you do like it, show up to the Forum Meet on Friday night and say hi.

    Uh, Sorry about that I meant to post here when we assigned it on the schedule. The official forum meet is in room 115 from 20:00 till 23:00.

    As I understand it there is also another pre-forum meet at the Toxic BBQ for those who can make it.

    I am not running this, however a room needed to be assigned and I was on a very short time line to see a decision reached.

    The website for the Toxic BBQ say's six.

    I suppose someone (Converge I'm look at you) is going to have to make a final call on the forum meet.

    Yeah? He certainly can't use the excuse about there not being any beer there.
