    Tickets have been booked: I'll arrive on Thursday, 2017-08-24 at 15:28 via train (Amsterdam Centraal) and will depart on Sunday, 2017-08-27 at 12:35 o'clock (train again). Anyone who'll be there around the same time? Will we all meet at Brinkers?

    Question for everyone: I want to do this for the US. Do you guys just meet up in a bar somewhere? Do you rent a conference center? What kind of logistics are proven winners?

    I'll never be able to afford to leave work for a week so I'll never make a European event. That and it is expensive. But maybe with some help from you guys here I can start something in the US. Canada can come too!

    • 2007 and 2008: hostel, PSP only.
    • 2009, 2010 and 2012: hostel for PSP, one member's apartment for HD.
    • 2011 and 2016: one member's apartment for PSP and HD.
    • 2013: hostel for PSP, small bar for a PSP meet-up as well.
    Personally I favor the home thing, as in hostels only you can rarily set up monitors and PS3s.

    This is already planned (you even replied to that thread) and already happened numerous times in the past (examples: 2012 and 2010).

    Yes, and unfortunately it seems that we are all spread out across the continental US. Transportation here is a bit more of a problem. There also hasn't been a huge amount of interest like there seems to be in Europe.

    The "already planned" event was just Hybrid Divide, JABBERJAW and myself talking about it. That was also over a year ago. The trip to Washington from the southeast would take a plane ticket, or a 2 day car trip. We don't have the luxury of being able to take a train to another country to meet up with fellow pilots. I'm looking to actually get some feedback on logistical planning from people that have done this before. Meeting online to play some races isn't really much of a convention.

    2010 and 2012 (well possibly 2012, I can't remember now) were before my time on wipeoutzone, so I wasn't even aware that there was such a thing. Do you guys all live fairly geographically close?

    So far the following nations united:
    • AT = Austria
    • BE = Belgium
    • DE = Germany
    • ES = Spain (not that sure)
    • FR = France
    • GB = Great Britain
    • IT = Italy
    • NL = Netherlands
    • NO = Norway (I think, might be SE = Sweden though)
    • PL = Poland
    • US = US of A
    Yes, those are all close together. A trip to London however should also be done by plane - at least I did. Using ferry and/or train will take half of the day. In the USA it'd be obvious to me to use a plane, and I'd wonder if you'd pay (much) more for those than we for the train - as an example: DE to NL costs roughly 50 (currently ~56 $) in one of the cheap options for one way. This amount of money would be questionable to me at an age of ~18, but as of today this is definitly worth it.

    Just force yourself to do it at least once, so you never have to ask yourself later the "what if" questions.

    Hey AmigoFriend, I'll arrive at 15:42 and leave at 11:17.
    If you can wait 15 minutes on Thursday so that I can be the first to jump on you ...

    Ah, great. Either I'll wait at (my) platform 7b or you tell me yours (so you can even jump faster).

    My memory is a little hazy but I remember the second year a guy turned up for the Saturday and he had a PS2 so we played Fusion projected on a bedroom wall.
