Default VA/MD Gran Turismo Challenge (March 15)

UPDATE:

Okay.. This event is a go. I may post this to our PSI challenged friends on CR.net also.

Here are the details:

When:
Saturday March 15, 2008 starting at 10am

Where:
My crib - Alexandria, VA 22303 (I will give address personally)

What:
Gran Turismo Prologue - I will order the Jap Spec as the US game is not out. I will have ONE racing wheel and ONE gaming chair + sofas and what not.

Food:
Pizza and Beer will be provided

What can I bring:
More beer, PS3 wheels, any peripherals you may need.



Please post if you plan on attending.



Other notes: If this date does not work for people.. let me know personally and we can shift it to a later weekend. I have a 52" 1080P TV, however, if we wish we can rent out the "screening room (seen below)" in my complex which consists of a full HD projector, kitchen, and billiards room upstairs.




OLD:Well.. since GT Prologue is coming out soon I thought I would throw this idea out there:
I am thinking of hosting a GTP (or GTHD depending on the date) challenge in the NOVA (alexandria) area. Anyone would be welcome... I'll provide the beer/food/PS3 (52" 1080P) /Steering Wheel..
As another option, my community has a screening room that accepts HD plug ins.. so if people chip in we could play it on the big screen and also use the billiards table.

I was thinking the first weekend in March.

Anyone interested?


Who's coming list:
Newbsauce (Brad)
Braineack (S
cott)
y8s (Matt)

That7Guy (Sevan)
pschmidt
Shueind (Lars)

Your job of creating virtual reality sex devices in no way gives you street cred in a GT challenge

I can probably score the race seat the wheel bolts and two extra wheels if that helps at all.

I am looking to do it the first weekend of March. However GTP is not releasing until April 15th in the states. So either I'll buy the region free Japanese version or we'll do GT HD.
