February 7th, 2004 AT 11AM! Mark your calenders!
Adventure Landing DDR Gathering!
Directions are here! (http://www.adventurelanding.com/park_map.cfm?ID=4) & Mapquest (http://www.adventurelanding.com/park.cfm?ID=4&func=map)
Cosplay theme DDR (http://www.ddrei.com/chara.php) vs FF (http://www.ffonline.com/)?
That's what we origionally planned before BR was considered and since we'll do BR later, I guess we'll fall back on this. Yet since it's late, no one will be sad if you don't stick to the theme.
DDR Character Reference (http://www.ddrei.com/chara.php)

^_^ Alright, since the last gathering theres a lot of eagerness about upcomming events, so we might as well start getting this organized, to get it out earlier so people can clear their schedules faster and what not. And the New Years Eve event is questionable for most i'd imagine. So anyways, here we go.

It's already been discussed quite a bit in detail, somewhere and here's what we've got so far..
-Hopefully Sometime Early 2004, there aren't any specific dates on the table
we should plan a date and times as usual, and what works best for everyone as usual so put your input on what you can and cannot do! :D
Depending on when we decide, we might want to set a rain-date incase of snow ^^ or something, maybe not *shrug*
-considering FF vs DDR theme or something
just a note, cosplay isn't required its just a suggestion :D if you can't wear a costume, come anyways, we still want to see you :D anyways should we keep this theme or what?
-At Adventure Landing
That's pretty much decided :D Directions will be posted soon, its in Raleigh, NC off capital blvd. I know that much
This is an arcade type place that has DDR, lazer tag, arcade games, putt putt, and go karts

I think thats all, well let the discussion begin! :D

Main topic aside, I think we should go back to Duke Gardens or go to another park where we have open space and can do fun stuff with our group, cosplay and maybe picnic again for our next event, and do it like in the Spring when the weather is nice and the trees are coming out.

12-17-2003, 12:29 AM
Great Idea! Adventure Landing would definitely be a cool place for us to hang out, although I'm not sure how they'll handle our costumes. The last time My friends and I were there they made one of us take off a Naruto Headband that he was wearing. Apparently no headware is allowed, but tons of other people were wearing hats? -_- Oh well, it wasn't even a staff member, but some rent-a-cop who told us this. I don't think they'd really kick out paying customers for wearing costumes now would they? LOL Adventure Landing only has one DDR machine now, compared to the 4 they used to have, but that one machine only costs 1 token for 3 songs so it's a really great deal. They've also got all the other Arcade games you'd want to play (Fighting Games like Soul Calliber II and racing games like Initial D, plus all the others). And hey, could you imagine the chaos of a 20 player otaku mini-golf match??? That would be great LOL. I've personally been to Adventure Landing a ton of times, so I know the place pretty well. I also love the idea of getting together at a place like Duke Gardens this spring, It would be the perfect setting for cosplay pictures. I'm pretty much open for any time, so whatever you guys decide will be cool with me.

12-17-2003, 12:38 AM
w00t! Yeah, the New Year's event will be kinda hard, now that it's so close. What about February? I know that's what we were discussing in the FF vs DDR thread. It'll give everyone some time to plan but we'd need to do it either a bit before or after Kastucon to give everyone a break.

I'll prolly end up making my Yuni costume for this one just because. I'm so sad that AL got rid of their 4th mix. ._. Waii. And just imagine, we could play laser tag, Battle Royale style since it's no longer teams and now every man for themselves. Bwahaha. They can't kick us out for dressing funny. They're losing business and that's just rediculous. Bleh.

Also, I agree with another Duke Gardens picnic and this time we could make it a real picnic instead of a junk food mish mash like last time. :D I also think the next one could be planned ahead for games and stuff, so people who come in costume come in one they can run around in and stuff. Plus, we have to be able to scare the masses. X3

12-17-2003, 06:00 AM
I'm all up for the DDR vs FF thing @ AL. We should like..take over the DDR machine and have a huge ff vs ddr ,ddr battle. o_o Ah but anyway..yeah I was thinking it'd be fun to go back to duke gardens again. Maybe walk around and stuff...well I've never seen anything inside of it except where we went,lol. I vote for before katsu maybe,because if we do it after we might be drained ? but all depends how long after I suppose. I don't think I have any big plans in the near future so whatever you guys choose is fine. ^_^

12-17-2003, 11:00 AM
ooo coo. lol yet another place i've never heard about lol. But it reminds me of Putt-Putt (before the got closed down). If we do decide to do this what date? I'm voting for before Katsucon cause i'll have a hangover afterwards lol XD.

12-17-2003, 04:44 PM
I would love a Battle Royal Lazer Tag match!! LOLOLOL And yeah, it really ticked me off when they made Ryan take his Konoha headband off. :waaaah: But they probably can't put a stop to a large group of us (paying them, as Toshiaki may add). Besides.... its freedom of speech LOL.

But I'd say sometime soon, to give everyone going to Katsu a rally point to get them go'n. Lol. ^^

Link Arroway
12-18-2003, 03:38 PM
Yeah, before Katsu hopefully, how about the weekend before, and if it snows we'll wait til March. That would be most convinent for me I know :D
We could do FF vs DDR and have a fake tournament in which we pit team Final Fantasy against team DDR :D
Waiting til Feb would be good since if we do groups we should have time to get costumes together. :D
battle royal would be good if we wanted to go at it in lazer tag? whats everyones opinoin of lazer tag? or should we stay with FF vs DDR? FF characters can use guns can't they? :P since when is there no more teams tomo? ;-;
they still have one ddr machine, DDR is DDR, you dont gotta play on your own mix :P anyways, they don't just drop two machines like that, they might just be getting them repaired (or they are really stupid)
anyways I don't think they'll kick us out either, but they always 'could'
how can a rent a cop make you take off a 'headband' its not against the law! stick it to him :D anyways, maybe we should push a few people into going dressed up before hand and if they kick them out, we'll change our plans :D

for no tables and wet grass we did pretty well for ourselfs last time at duke gardens? :P

12-21-2003, 08:27 PM
I've never played laser tag before o_O I'd probably stick to DDR or the designated 'I'm going to be a party pooper' section. March probably wouldn't be good for me since I probably won't be here. At least..not until the end of the month (near my birthday). I'll probably stay here until feb. or after katsu then go back to ..*dundundun* texas..*fears* o.o; but whatever,I'm bound to miss something.

12-21-2003, 11:27 PM
lol yea i like the BR Laser tag thing. lol since im a laser tag addict O_O lol. lol not much to say... :/

oh yea i forgot to add. Where is adventure landing?

12-22-2003, 05:19 AM
It's off Capital Blvd. It's where the old Putt-Putt used to be :P

12-22-2003, 06:14 PM
I'm proposing the date of February 7th! The first friday of February, and the week before the Katsu.

A lot of people want to do the DDR vs FF this and now BR, so who wants to do what, should we do both and play some ddr then lazer tag and cosplay as one of the three, if we just do br lazer tag and ddr, ff on ddr it might be sparce if not many people come. we could do a seperate event for BR Lazer Tag in the future since there is a lot better places play lazer tag than adverture landing, I think anyways..

12-22-2003, 06:56 PM
I agree with the BR Laser Tag at a different place because Laser Tag at AL isn't the greatest. I think we should SO do that. o_O

February 7th sounds good to me. Gotta ask my Mom. I'm not exactly sure what I'm gonna wear though. I might be able to make Yuni (Or Pucca. o_o) and stuff but do we even want to keep it themed? O_o If anything it might be better if we un-theme this one and just make sure everyone does BR at the Laser Tag one. Oh hell! I don't know. X3

Link Arroway
12-22-2003, 08:02 PM
I dunno, I think making it non themed might be a good idea! I'll be doing DDR since well, DDR @ Katsu anyways and well, DDR! I yay! XD and, then BR characters can be all, arr I'll rule you at lazer tag, if we want to play lazer tag some, and whatever else. maybe we'll see some Initial D cosplay! :D

12-22-2003, 09:50 PM
Hmm . . . It'll be Emi, right? If so, I'll probably make Yuni for that event then. :D

I think Battle Royale Laser Tag as a seperate event might be pretty cool. There's this place.

North Carolina 27613

Anyone been there? Is it good? Maybe we could rent the place and make it TRUE Battle Royale Laser Tag or even just Battle Royale: CCR and everyone wear a different cosplay outfit. *shrug*

12-23-2003, 10:33 AM
I think it'd be a better idea to have the BR laser tag as a different event,that way we could have one theme for the AL and one for this other laser tag place? Feb. 7 sounds good to me,I guess everyone will be busy for the month of January? Oh and if we have a BR thing...are we going to dress up as characters from that? o_o

Sounds good, I've been there numerous times in the past and I know the owner so maybe I could get us a deal on renting the place out. Otherwise we could just go when there not busy and probably not have problems. but if we went when they were busy it would get quite disorganized quite fast! So that sounds good, so then should we keep FF vs DDR for Adventure Landing? or go with ALL vs DDR? since we want to do some sort of theme.

And for BR at Battlezone if we want to do it there, well regardless, Battle Royal theme of course, someone post a picture of what the outfits look like, but I think they are just like all tanish stuff or something, I don't know, but from what I've seen you could just wear tan clothes and not be too out of place, but if you don't cosplay it we'll understand, but shoot you more for it xD

and.. y`ah, for Adventure Landing, I'm going to be cosplaying Emi, most definately!

12-27-2003, 06:08 PM
I again remain unable to go, lol. With classes/projects, and the whole 2-hours-away thing...I don't think I can spare a day in February. *sigh* Stupid school. You people and your Raleigh-ness, heh :P

12-29-2003, 04:53 PM

Males - Black Tie
Females - Red Tie

For the adventure landing I might be able to go since it's like a mile from my house.

12-30-2003, 09:49 PM
:P i think i will be able to make this one ^_^!! lol hopefully. im not sure. Inami if your able to go i could give you a ride if you need.

12-31-2003, 05:31 PM
WHEeeeEeee. I can't wait. I gotta ask my Mom but I'm sure it'll be ok. And I'm not worried about missing FIRST. I'll just not show up. HAAH. I think I'm gonna make Puchiko for this one. o_o

01-05-2004, 11:53 AM
okay I'm posting directions :D go look in the updated top of the thread :P
also, a link to a page with all the DDR characters on it if you want to cosplay something from DDR
I guess it's still FF vs DDR theme, but yeah, only a month away! :D

01-05-2004, 12:49 PM
I really want to go the CCR @ AL. I have to check the bus schedule and routes in Raleigh though. That's the only way I probably make it to the event. I will let you guys know if I can or not make it. :)
I like the idea of having another picnic at Duke Gardens. :) How about having the picnic a week before Animazement? :)

01-05-2004, 01:27 PM
It's been a loong time since I've been to AL. I'll be there though. A picnic before animazement that sounds like a plan.

01-13-2004, 04:22 PM
AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! No No No this isn't happening!!! My mom is going to Vietnam this month for a month. Which mean I gotta be at work that day. Wait.

Ok what time is the festivity?????

has anyone set a time or anything? hmm forgot about that, how about like 11am?
maybe we should delay it until after Katsucon? is everyone looking like they'll be able to come on the current date? Sat. Feb. 7th, and katsu is next weekend on the 14th, we could always delay it until the 21st or something.
I'm running low on funds so I don't think I'll have Emi done in time for the thing with Katsu coming up right next week ;_;

01-14-2004, 04:08 PM
Aight I have no way of coming so I guessing I'm out. My mom is leaving the 29th of this month and coming back the 29th of feburary.

01-14-2004, 07:53 PM
I'll be able to come. Though,i'll probably be leaving soon after katsucon so I don't know if I'll be able to make it to anything after that. 11am sounds good to me!

01-15-2004, 05:18 PM
:D Finally an event I'll most likely be able to make! May or may not have a costume though cuz my sewing machine hates me and decided to die ;_; But- if it gets fixed I should be able to slap togeather a selphie costume :D

01-24-2004, 02:37 PM
AHH! Sorry I havent visited in a while... I've gone on a drawing rampage. (My mother just told me my room smells like pencil lead -_-; )... but I'm back now!
Anyway, I am so looking forward to this! But I've got a question, when would the Battle Royal lazer tag thingy be? I'm all for both Adeventure Landing and Lazer tag though. And so then, Feb 7 or is the Ad. Landing thingy pushed back? Either way I can more than likely make it ^^
::hug:: Missed you guys!!

01-24-2004, 06:24 PM
ACK. I can't go. At all. T_________________T If we were to push it back after the 24th of February . . . I could go 'cause that's after ship date. But before, I can't. T_T;; UNLESS we have it after 4 PM that day and I'll just come late.

I dunno. Anyone interested in doing stuff during Spring Break? The mall, the park, any place really.

01-24-2004, 06:56 PM
I dunno. Anyone interested in doing stuff during Spring Break? The mall, the park, any place really.

I'd love to do something anytime! ^^ I've never gotten together with cosplay buddies in a park before though... and I always see awesome pics where everyone is having tons of fun. We should do something like that over spring break if anyone is interested besides Tomo and I. ^^

01-24-2004, 09:37 PM
For the thing in Feb, if the date hasn't changed, I'm still not sure if I can make it. And as for doing something during spring break, seeing as I have no life and won't be out doing anything special, I say is safe to think I'm free those days.

01-24-2004, 09:49 PM
I may be able to do something dring Spring Break if we don't get much more snow and if it is not in Raleigh.... I cant go to Raleigh all the time you know with living 3 hours away and everything...
T_T I hope we can meet up before AZ though!

01-24-2004, 11:26 PM
When is Spring Break for you all..?

01-25-2004, 11:37 AM
When is Spring Break for you all..?
Aheheh.... ^^; Rather good question there. Sometime 'about the week of Easter. XD I'll find out! ... but with this snow... -_- Our luck half the break will be eaten up by snowdays.

01-25-2004, 05:03 PM
ack there goes one of my spring breakk days.... with this snow....arg
Well it was the thursday and friday before Easter + the weekend....
Our break isn't much..... ~_~

01-25-2004, 07:49 PM
My spring break is sometime in march? i dont know lol

Link Arroway
01-25-2004, 09:13 PM
Awww. a lot of you can't you ararrrr, you must go I mean Tomo you've missed the last event @_@!!!! Should we delay it? I mean it would probably be worth it, then you the rest of you don't have a reason not to cosplay :D :D

01-25-2004, 09:31 PM

01-26-2004, 01:11 AM
Okay, I suggest we vote on a static date that will be good for everybody, and everybody would mark it on their calendars and smack their parents if they try to make plans on that day! XD

Yes!!!!! Mwahahahahaha!!!!!! ..................... ^^ So ya, that sounds good. And what Link said about not haveing a reason not to cosplay. ^^ We've gotta cosplay.

01-26-2004, 05:31 PM
ACK.... I was wrong.... my spring break is in March... it was 15-19....but now is the 15-17... if I am out of School with snow any more it will eat up my Spring Break.... then I have the Friday before Easter, and the Monday after off as well....
As long as its closer than Raliegh, I may be able to drag a few friends along in costume...along with whoever drives us ^_^ That is if I get permission.... ~_~

01-27-2004, 06:10 PM
Were holding it off? Geez.. I was actually going to get to go to this one too.. Oh well. :(

01-27-2004, 09:02 PM
*prays that people can still go so we can keep the date* If we re-schedule to the end of March,that's peachy,cuz I'll be here for my birthday ^^

DDR Faery Spice
02-02-2004, 03:05 PM
WHAT?!?! postponement?! I was actually really looking forward to this one.....*sniffles* I've never been to a CCR meeting and I'd love to meet you guys. *sigh* Oh well, Iku-chan, looks like you're spending the night at my house this weekend....

02-02-2004, 04:21 PM
I'm confused..on the first page the date still stands so if the majority of people let's say..friday..can't come we should cancel?

Link Arroway
02-04-2004, 11:01 AM
it looks like enough of us can go so no point in canceling, lets all go and have fun at the arcade saturday on the date

maybe we'll go and do it again or have another event soon, if you have to miss out, we still wanna see you and any DDR costume you might have come up with :D

02-04-2004, 01:04 PM
is 11am the time decided?

Link Arroway
02-04-2004, 10:50 PM
hmm.. sure.. if no one is opposed?

Saturday the 7th of February at 11AM, CCR Gathering at Adventure Landing
see first page in thread for directions.

02-05-2004, 07:15 AM
11am is good, that means i gotta leave at 9am >_< never woke up so early on a saturday before lol.

02-05-2004, 02:27 PM
I have to work Saturday from 1-5PM. But If I wake up early enough, I may be able to go for about an hour or so.

02-05-2004, 02:38 PM
Gah, I'd planned to use this weekend to work on Katsucon costumes. So I guess I won't be there. You guys take lots of pictures for me.

02-07-2004, 12:36 PM
I hope that those of you that were able to go had fun. I gotta be at work till 5PM :(

But if you are on your way home and need to get a book, come by my library and I'll be able to help you.**wink wink** (my work aka: Green Road Library, is about a mile away from Adventure Landing) I'm the flannel man here. :D

Link Arroway
02-07-2004, 02:45 PM

*drinks a Schlotzsk drink, not quiznoes like I thought it was, haha I walked to the internet :D

I better call and get my ride, stupid car :D

02-07-2004, 02:50 PM
Heh, yeah. Speaking of which, we're in the Schlotzky's Deli place right now, using this spiffy looking iMACs. Yeah, barely anybody came, so we just played DDR, Laser Tag, and Initial D!. (Speaking of which, I now have a card with a Lancer Evolution-III , Go me! Well, Link's currently attempting to get on IRC, but is failing because these MACs are evil and don't support much Javascript at all. Well, he needs to go call his dad so I will be leaving. Today was leet. (ALL OF YOU HAVE TO COME NEXT TIME! :O)

02-07-2004, 03:20 PM
*beats everyone with a stick....besides jazon and link* :hafha:

02-07-2004, 03:32 PM
hope everyone had fun to all who made it. I have to work till late 6 days a week.

Schlotzsky? I sucking what ever wifi internet from them or from bear rock that's next door...lol.

02-07-2004, 03:56 PM
Well, I just got back at like 4:35, and I am pretty tired. Link volunteered to make a summary of the day so look forward to it! Now, I go finish my Wendy's and go do random crazy stuff.

Link Arroway
02-07-2004, 04:38 PM
hmm, okay ^_^ I just got home, *rubs sore ankles*.
lesse, candy man and kawaiiedea got there first and I got there around 11:20am? I dunno. I was planning on being early but that never happens >_>
we played some (a lot) of ddr and even some Initial D :D :D :D and I finally bought a card thingy,
behold my Toyota Trueno GT-Apex :3 .. I wanna new car
must collect them all! @_@
anyways... Jazon showed up while we were playing Initial D and then we, did something, we played ddr and wandered around, played lazer tag, it was a lot of fun and full of l33t-ness hehe. uhh, we stood around and talked, and told stories of the annoying children stalkers that swarm amung the lazer tag room, and the old rednecks who come out of no where ._. I got a score of 0 :D go me. and Candyman beat the high score woohoo! we did more nothing and I think we went outside some but it got colder and we went back inside, and it was getting a lot more crowded by 3pm, we played a few last games of DDR and took some pictures. Jazon and I battled it out in Initial D individually in story mode and Candyman and KawaiiEdea left. we went to Slotzskies and got a drink and played online then left shortly after around 4pm.

would of been more fun if the rest of you could come :P better luck next time :)

02-07-2004, 04:48 PM
got that right. all them friggin' chillens getting their lasers all up on me. yeah. I sux0red at the ddr cuz I never played in the arcade befooore. Nyeer! Did a good job summing up ALLLLLL that happened XDD

Link Arroway
02-07-2004, 04:58 PM
I played in the arcade a few times, but arr I haven't played in awhile, the feet soreness :D :D I need to break in my ankles again so they are ddr-proof, so much for super-katsu training :D

at first i edited this onto my last message instead of double posting but then someone posted so I was like meh and I'll put it here :D
having 4 people was better than having no one come at all or just one show up and be like ;-; and all alone
poor kawaiiedea was the only one who cosplayed :P, I wish I had Emi done sooner! crazy Katsucon planning and poorness -_-, oh yeah =D jazon kinda cosplayed :P wearing clothes similar to his comic character, but not something you'd see across the room and be like GASP! ITS A JAZON! =D =D kinda like shinji cosplays =P
I ran out of allowed smilies so I have to use the = for eyes. =D
after more people got in it could of been harder to find people if you didn't recognise us, I am lucky I remembered that I should my AZ tag, but forgot to wear it until later =\

02-07-2004, 05:46 PM
You betta be posing pictures soon. I still wish I could have gone. Next time though.

02-07-2004, 08:39 PM
XD I recognized Jazon! xDDDDD Oh and I dunno 'bout them pictures cuz..I don't have a scanner ;-; can't wait to get them developed...crazy mid-ddr-poses me thinks. *nod*

02-07-2004, 08:46 PM
No scanner.....:(


02-16-2004, 09:04 PM
