Alright, here's a small, pre-birthday update (tomorrow I turn 34 and will have marked my 16th year of playing fighting games):
The meetup will need monitors and/or TVs for the consoles. If you bring a monitor or TV (either along with a console or solo), I will make arrangements to pay your setup cost. I simply do not have the resources available presently to drop $600+ on just monitors for the meetup. Well, that and my wife said no
As a thank you to our hosts, we (my wife and I) will be buying the store (and whoever is in it at the time) Pizza around 6pm. There will more than likely be a donation jar setup at registration to help with the cost of this. If you want to bring sodas and chips to eat/drink during the meetup, that's fine with me but please bring enough to share if you can. Geek World will also have drinks for sale
Here's a general idea of what I have planned out as far as setups go for the 2nd:
1 full-time AE station (360)
1 full-time Marvel station (360)
1 full-time Tekken Tag 2 station (PS3)
1 full-time PS3 station with various games (SFxT/Skullgirls/GG AC+/others)
other setups TBD
I've also had people from the Smash community around East Texas get in contact with me as well, and we'll have a spot for them as well. If all goes right, we'll have two Smash setups for people to float between. I will nail everything down hopefully on Thursday, and post in the evening when I get back from Tyler.

I don't have any monitors but I can ask around and see what we can gather up. Maybe a PS3 and a couple XBoxes and a few SDTVs can make it over there.

okay folks, I have talked with Mark over at Geek World and I have some good news (and a date change). The 2nd won't work because of a new Magic expansion coming out that weekend, so our meetup has been moved two weeks to the 16th of February. This is the final date and Geek World has asked me to send them the event info on Facebook so they can do promotional material for us. I am planning for 10 setups overall, as this will be my $50 I have set aside to cover the fees.
I'll work on the schedule for the meetup this weekend while I'm out of town in Dallas, but I will be making trips to visit the DFW Fight Club crew and regulars, and the Dustloop regulars on Saturday.

I went ahead and posted on Dustloop for you with the link to this thread. Would you like to take it down so you can set your own up or just update it?
