Hello,

 

Monday, July 15th, 7PM - 9PM (or whenever we leave), Rock Bottom Cafe, 7900 Norfolk Ave, Bethesda 20814.

 

I tried to post in the news & information forum, but I could not start a new topic there.  If someone can move my post to the correct forum, that would be appreciated, MODS or WG folks.

 

So I made a Greater Washington DC area MeetUp group, and I have planned my first event.  Here is the link to the event:

https://www.meetup.c...ents/262421426/

 

We have permission from the establishments manager, and we also have a GOOD internet connection and lots of power plugs.  The venue is Rock Bottom Cafe in Bethesda, MD (7900 Norfolk Ave, 20814).

 

We will have the entire upstairs area to ourselves, which about 15 tables + 3 pool tables we could also use if we need the space.  There are power plugs on every wall, and I am going to bring electric extension cords and power strips, enough for up to 15 players.  I have 4 XBOX's and 6 27" Samsung 1080P televisions, along with extra long HDMI cables.  I also have 3 gaming laptops, and I will make sure the game is installed and updated on all devices prior to bringing them to the event.  I plan to get there an hour early to setup and test everything.  The management may also make a dedicated Ethernet connection available, and if they do I have a 48 port gigabit switch for everyone to use.  This would also mean I will bring about 20 50-foot CAT6 cables if this is green-lighted.  Worst case, we will have our own GUEST WIFI signal just for us and not for the rest of the patrons.  I tested their connection and it appears they have the Verizon GigaBlast service, I was able to get about 700MB worth of speed from speakeasy.net.

 

I will write up an agenda, but basically I figured we introduce ourselves, order some food, and then maybe talk for a few or we can just get into grouping and playing, I am open to anything the group decides.  Since there are 2 main areas upstairs, we could have 1 area for platoons, and use the 2nd area for a group training room, if we have some new people that would like some lessons on how to play better.  Since I am not sure how many will turn out, it might just be me playing by myself upstairs at "The Rock", we will see.

 

Contact me with questions, if you have an XBOX that can travel, I could use 2 additional units, if enough people show.

 

Thanks for looking,

David
