I encourage other Qt3’ers to get together! Post back here when you do.
Did he spend the 3 days prior preparing said lunch? Because that’d be something Armando would do.
That is awesome! :)
Hey, this is a great thread idea! Here’s the picture of me and @jpinard from earlier this year.
It really was a nice afternoon out with folks; I’m glad you were able to make it and meet some of my Raleigh Crue :-D. Plus, hey, Guasaca! That said, I don’t recall you doing any bringing down of the mood by talking about Syrian Refugees at all! Looks like you’re gonna have to try again next month ;-)
Not this time around. I’ve been meaning to host another boardgames day at my house, but space and chairs are limited. D’oh :(
You all are adorable.
So much this!
All right, here’s a bit of a blast from one of our meetups in the past. I mentioned in another thread that Chet was decent enough to give several of us Seattle-area Qt3ers a tour of Valve. I don’t remember the exact date, but I think it was early June 2012 because if I recall correctly my son was a couple weeks old. Here’s the group:
So dude on the far right is Chet, next to Chet is Tim Elhajj, and next to Tim is Alan Au, and … well, at that point I am afraid memory fails me. I am sorry, anyone in this photo that I’ve drawn a blank on. Rude of me. Maybe one of you could jump in and help an old dude out? I think Denny was along for the ride too, but I must not have gotten him in the shot.
One more photo from that visit:
Yeah, it’s their award room. I’m just including it because I thought it was cool.
Gah, I was stupid and didn’t take any pictures of mine and @Andy_Bates’ visit to see @tomchick and @ChristienMurawski and @fire during E3 this year! Board games were had by all, and Andy’s son (Trevor? Shoot, I hope I’m close…) came out as the overall winner. Tom and Christien are wonderful hosts.
If anyone comes to northern Vermont, hit me up before hand; there are a few of us up here in the wilds of frozen Yankeeland.
Nice! I go up there regularly because my inlaws live in Waterbury Center and my brother in law lives in Williston. Now I just have to remember to look this up next time I head that way.
Cool! I live in Jericho, which is maybe twenty minutes up Rte 2 from Waterbury Center (which has a decent if overpriced and sort of snooty beer store), and maybe 10-15 minutes from Williston.
Awesome, not sure when I’ll be up there next, but I’ll let you know when I find out.
If someone here is ever in Brazil please let me know. ;)
That’s me next to Alan. My memory is failing me on who everyone else is. That was a pretty fun tour. I still use my Black Mesa coffee cup from the swag bag as my work mug.
None of these meetups happened unless pics are taken and posted in this thread. I want to believe all y’all are real people but I just don’t know anymore.
I know we have some Florida peeps, but it’s a big state.
I’m up for a meet if there are any Houston folks around.
And please post here when and if this happens. If the timing is right, I’ll make a day trip down south to hang out with you guys! Google Maps says I’m 2 hours and 20 minutes from Waterbury Center.
