Like Jet i would love to do the river cruise again next year it was awesome!
Oh and I am totally for the whole rent out a hall and have some kinda party or movie night sounds like fun. :wgrin:[/quote]
Or maybe we should have a Nerf War with barricades (the "wall" kind) followed by a party afterwards!

Also, must remember, most games do have a max size, so we'd either need quite a low max player count or have multiple games and such going on at once.
Plus, as fun as it would be, pulling an all night game/movie marathon probably would not be good for any events the day after.
I don't really have any suggestions as of yet, I'd like to see another Nerf war, perhaps in a location with better terrain (maybe even using out own cover as Esp said). Ive the idea of a talent show being thrown around, and that could be interesting, though it'd have to be incorporated into some other event probably.
As for feedback, everything I went to seemed well organised and ran pretty smoothy, a good mix of flexibility and you know, sticking to the schedule.

Calfoxy: Yus, we do understand regulations, restrictions and all the jazz that goes with something like that. Hence things like that would be duel done, say art jammin/movies with a lan happening.
This is just so we can get an idea of how many peeps will be interested or want to attend something like that or if its worth it kinda thing. If something happens to get more spunk, we just go with that activity instead. Its so we can plan for you guys for the most part
If we do go with the lan party, then we will sit down with a bunch of the more tech minded furs most likely and ask their advice about how to go along with something like this ^.^ But thankies for your imput though

for a LAN you could find out how many people have spare computers that they would be willing to 'lend', figure out how many you can accommodate in terms of power usage and networking... and then make it a bring-your-own-pc with x slots for 'pc hire'... but anyway...
Brilliant weekend, the zoo trip sorta did throw a few things off... with minimal transport options there and then the cost of entry with only a quick run around the place before leaving... but anyway, all in all it was great fun and can't wait till next year! :wgrin:

I'm all to familiar with it. I run #Brisburnians on DeviantArt with a few others and we simply couldn't please everyone at the same time. No matter what event we planned there were always complaints.

A LAN party wouldn't be impossible, but I do have some thoughts. You'll definitely see the split between gamerpros, regular gamer furs and those who don't play games/aren't as good at them. Playing games is always fun, even if you lose, but it's not very fun when you spawn and 5 seconds later get hammered by 9001 bullets that were just fired at you. Of course, so does the SSBB tourney at FurDU, so perhaps remedy it with an Artjam or something else that's going on at the same time.
I believe we need events that everyone can enjoy and that don't segregate people because of skill level in that particular field.
The Story Bridge climb idea could be fun, but not when the group price is $880 for max of 12 people (have to ring them for a quote for more peeps).
Cruise was amazing, I wanna go again :3
Anyways, these are my opinions on things

Anyway, it's more than posible to host one of those lans for minimum, if not any cost at all. Libraries in Brisbane host meeting rooms that can be hired out for no cost. And no, I'm talking about those tiny study rooms on the second floor. BSQ is central brisbane, just over the bridge from Cult.Cent. Those things are fully equipped, the one is SBK has about 50 power points in it. The only real cost involved is the cat5e/cat6 cable needed to run such an event, as servers and switches can be provided by those of us within the event itself (IE Me ), although I can provide a heap of Cat5e in multiple pretty colours as well.
So long as everyone keeps a few gbs free and someone brings a HDD worth of lan games and a USB of VCD, these things are easy to run if you know what you're doing.
