PAX Forum Community Gatherings

edited September 2008 in PAX Archive
In the wake left behind by the massive gathering that is PAX, I've noticed a lot of threads for community gatherings have popped up. In an effort to make things a little easier for people to find, I've created this thread to consolidate information. The individual threads for each event should still exist for discussion of events-in-planning and events that are happening. This thread is for posting of brief information regarding said events. Use the following format as an example.

Event: Event Name
Date(s): When event is happening
Type of Event: LAN/BBQ/Gameworks/Dinner/whatever you get the idea
Location: City, State/Province, Country
Link to Thread or External Website
Notes: Any notes of the event or a brief synopsis

As things get chaotic, I'll try to organize things in this post. Also there's a Google calendar out there set aside for events like this, I'll link to the thread about it when I find it. Meanwhile, get posting about events that are ongoing, I know there's at least three in the works right now.

Here's some threads that are about gatherings, but not of any singular event.

Seattle
Vancouver
Washington DC
Northern California
Edmonton

That's all I can find, let me know if there's more.

    Moe, do you think you could put links to each thread in the OP? Having it sorted out by Area would make things a lot easier. I noticed there's a Seattle, Edmonton, and Vancouver thread.. I'm not positive but there must be more.

    Alright so Portland PAXers, if I was to set up an event for everyone, would people rather tabletop gaming at Guardian Games, retro arcade action at Ground Kontol, or coffee and gaming at Backspace? Or some other possible thing to do. Since it's pretty ridicious nothing has been set up for Portland PAXers.
