The 2015 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) is upon us. The expo days this year are Sep 29 to Oct 1, which are a Tuesday to Thursday, as usual. Same venue -- the Sands convention center.

Tradition has it that we meet up after the show on Wednesday at I Love Burgers at the Palazzo. I think we've done this three or four years in a row now and I see no reason to change. However, as a formality, I'll open up the poll to the day and accept all suggestions for a change of venue below, as I don't want to come off as a dictator. However, my personal preference is to stick with tradition and to not fix what isn't broken.

Also, if anybody has a booth at the show, feel free to announce it. Last year I lots of us paid Ahigh a visit at his booth.

As of this writing Wednesday is getting 80% of the Tue-Thur vote. I motion we set Wednesday, 9/30/15, as the official date. Who will second the motion?

But seriously, Wednesday at I ♥️ Burger is fine. Consider the motion seconded.

I have this dream where I show up at Ahigh's booth
and praise his stuff to the heavens, get him all smiling
and grinning and then telling him who I am and watching
his face fall. Priceless..

I agree, but some argue that he is only a commander, as evidenced by the three bars on his sleeve. There was some discussion about it at DT: Is it Captain or Commander Crunch?.

Then say "Just kidding". Now that would be some comedy.

I don't think he's supposed to be either one. But agreed, three gold bars is a Commander. I was in the navy.
