Midwest Gaming Classic Benheck Room

Post by benheck » Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:23 pm

Here is a map showing our location:

http://www.starwoodhotels.com/sheraton/ ... loorKey=-1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

We are in Section 5. It is 541 sq feet.

Here are the tables available:

8FT x 1.5FT classroom tables 198
8FT x 2.5FT tables VERY limited
6FT x 1.5FT classroom tables 28
6FT x 2.5FT double wide tables - VERY limited
72" Rounds 57
66" Rounds 50
60" Rounds 30
4FT tables 11
Cocktails Tables 12
1/2 Serps 12
1/4 Serps 7
Fill in for Serps 5
High Boy Tables 3

Does anyone want to come up with an area layout? With hopefully LESS tables than last time? :)

Here's the room page: Link

Could probably do 4 TVs on those round tables, one facing each direction. It might be a good idea to keep that kind of "stand around and watch" stuff away from the doors, to maximize traffic flow. :?

Once, you just had a panel. Then you had a booth. Now you have a whole room?! Ben, you're slowly taking over MGC. :lol:

Edit: Here's a bigger, cleaned up copy of the room layout (for all your MS Paint needs):

Serp tables are rectangular tables with a bit of a curve, generally very good for exhibits. Good corner tables too.

If you guys are interested, here's how the floor plan is filling up:

Here's what I'm thinking.

"Dev Stuff" is some other guys that might be in there as well, since the museum ran out of room.

Look OK to everyone? I just sent it to Dan.

Figure we let people build stuff behind the top 2 and bottom 1 tables, left table we just set crap on. Middle tables are for general purpose hanging out, and BPP goes in the corner (like Baby)

I have that carpet bit from last year, but we'll need more. Can anyone bring a solder dropcloth?

If you replace the bottom 8'/1.5' with a Serp you can make a happy room! :D

I'm planning to bring my n64 and dev tools, I am well on my way to having a playable demo.

I'd need space for a N64+TV. I can bring my ghetto 14" TV but if anyone has a better one, do speak up :D

if somebody has 1-3 demo videos they would like to display i have a device that would be perfect for the job, just need to put it in a different case. and i will be bringing tools and parts and all kinds of other stuff probably.

i did have a question, if we have stuff for sale can we do that in the BHE area or if its a significant amount of stuff (more than one persons worth) would we need a vendor table or what? i think this may have been discussed before but i dont remember

I've wondered this too. I've been thinking this could be a good opportunity to sell a few things if I can.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

I was wondering this too. I got some sega cd fuses, and I was hoping to do some Nomad screen replacements if the screens will arrive before I head up there.

Third post down, Ben's. Unless this has changed I would image we can have our own vendor tables.

Yeah, when I was talking with Ben he said that the idea was that we (or he, I forget) bring in enough people that it's a good enough tradeoff for the event as a whole.

Well, I found out yesterday that I'm scheduled to work every day up to MGC. :facepalm:
I am going to hold off on bringing the N64 stuff this year, I don't think I have enough to make it worthwhile
