FMGC 2012 - Gaming Convention - GTA CANADA


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    Yeah, guys, with all of this talk of rum and spirits … just keep it under moderation and control. I’m probably going to save all of my drinking calories until the evening after the event. Also, I’m planning on spending some money on the bar that is there. We are using their space so I would like to give even just a little back.

    @Rorschach:

    @Clyde85:

    Ooooo! drinking is allowed!?!�

    As Jeremy mentioned … YES … but discreetly!!  If anyone gets out of hand we’ll have no choice but to remove them from the building especially as we don’t have a licence for the event, only the RCAF Club having a licence for what they sell during the time the bar is open.



  • @MrMalachiCrunch:

    Yes, discreet.  Also make sure you have a safe ride home/hotel.  I’ve only been walking again for about 12 months since a drunk driver nearly killed me.  I for one really enjoy the sensation of being able to walk again.

    Absolutely have a safe ride, everyone!!  There are plenty of taxis available, and I’m 100% certain that if needed those at the event that have not had anything to drink will gladly give others a drive!



  • Not if their puking and pissin their pants.

    I’m going to assume they’ll be removed from the premises before that.  lol.
    That would not be the definition of moderation.  😉

    Gargantua and I have worked together to come up with a special “gift” for everyone at the event.  Custom made just for the event!

    I really wish I could come too (stuck on the wrong continent), as it really sounds like it will be a blast!

    For those of you on Twitter and Google+ the hashtag for the weekend will be #FMGC12.

    I’ve kicked off the membership drive for 2012. If you would like to donate in person, I’ll take USD cash at the convention.

    I’ll actually take some CAD, it’ll save me a trip to the ATM. I’m going to set a limit at $60 CAD, total.

    And as long as there is WiFi (as promised) I’ll give you your badge on the spot (as long as I’m not in the middle of a turn).

    I confirm : it was great and we had a lot of fun !!

    I didn’t see any disgracious behavior during the week-end (and with gamers, you never know…), nor did i see any stone/drunk/stupid people (btw, i got no problem with drunk people, just with annoying drunk people).

    The place was amazing, so was the Sherman tank parade.

    Really a great event. Hope we can be more than 60 people next year.

    A photo was taken with all the guys costumed : Gargantua was US General, Suprise attack was India/Anzac, Vance was UK, and Clyde85 (with the German uniform) was China and i was Russia. We were holding that huge US flag garg brought for the event. A lady took that photo, and i really hope that photo can be posted in here (it was the only one taken with all 5 of us costumed).

    Note : for those of you who wonder (and i know there’s a lot): Gargantua is a really cool and nice guy. About every aa.orger wanted to meet him and have a chat with him at some point during the week-end.

    So, A&A.Org’s villain is really a pussy cat?
