    Well, I guess I didn't chime in this time around about being at PRGE. Been busy moving, helping my friend out at the Xbox battle arena getting Xboxes ready, being sick, and picking up and delivering Quan's heavy boxes of shit, I barely got to walk the floor. Just enough to get quick glances at booths and chat it up with cdamm, bubz, and Quan. Didn't get to talking to Brad until the last day.

    Also, great to finally have met Gabe as well. It's been a long time coming, bro!

    Hey I actually got to meet a few of members from here, but I only went for one day and didn't take the group pic. Bought a Japanese PS2 slim with Ibara and a few other games. I think I met lolifox girl but im not sure if it was him or not.
    Insert funny sig here.

    Bought a Mr. Do and mini marquees from Quan, a few SFC games from 16-bit, touched Chris's sticks when he wasn't at the booth (said hi to him later when he was packing up), talked to someone at the will-call booth who was carrying around a 1-slot board but didn't catch their name. Most of my time was spent doing various volunteer duties for the show. Still had a fun weekend.

    it was a great time. I even made sure my booth had free weed and beer, but connor was no where to be seen.

    the only problem was that quan left early. when the main neo crew and some friends went out to dinner post show, we missed him so much. so when we took a group picture, i drew a lifelike pic of him on my phone so he can be with us in spirit.



    it didnt come out in the pic, but here is what was on screen:

    Y'all look like a bunch of salespeople. Seriously though, the pic makes me want to meet up with some people on here. Just not those east of San Antonio, in-state.

    He put it on when he was trying to sell my MV1F. I got a glimpse of it after he sold it.

    Edit: That's going from left to right...

    Ok, I know I wasn't super awake for most of the show (I work nights and aren't usually awake during daylight hours). But try as I might I don't recall new peeps from the forum other than Beelzebub & loli on Saturday. Unless it wasn't mentioned to me that you were on the forum. Which I'm guessing is what happened as I did meet some new peeps on Saturday that weren't said to be on the forum. I feel bad that I'm not remembering erryone I met Saturday well enough...

    Yeah, hardly saw you this year. Gotta fix that next year, even if it's just making it to one of the dinners after the show.

    You should make it to a PRGE or MGC show. Good peeps & good times. I'd say that for me MGC is a little more of a social show while PRGE is better overall in my opinion. But I only made it to MGC once so far so I've limited experience with MGC compared to PRGE. So come on out to MGC in April, it's a bloody fun show...

    Quan texted me that you were at RR on Friday night, but I needed to get Xbox LANd stuff set up and also needed to figure out why half the consoles we brought for my friend's light gun duel challenge wasn't working right. Lemme tell you, Murphy dun slapped the fuck out of my friend and I throughout the whole show. Wasn't fun at all.

    ...but yeah, I'm definitely gonna make next year happen with you all.

    Well, you're closer to PRGE as well. I may have to hit up an MGC sometime.

    How's the vendor room at MGC? My primary source of fun at the retro shows is trying to find imports for various systems. The previous 2 years at PRGE saw a LOT of imports, but this year, they seemed pretty hard to come by. There were a couple return tables (Mad Gear, and another one that I forget), but not a lot mixed in with other vendors.

    Anyone with some history at MGC on the availability of imports there? Talking like Jp Mega Drive, SFC, Fami, etc.
