Hey All: It’s that time of the year again (actually earlier) where we gather everything EVO-related in one place.
Here’s a couple things all attendees should be doing in the meantime:
1: Start. Saving. NOW! This won’t be stressed enough. EVO2K6 is close to 3 months away but I’m doing this thread so more people have more time to plan for this trip.
2: Leave the month of August open for this event. My guess is that you’ll need August 10th through the 14th (Thursday through Monday). More info on this as SRK updates the evo2k6 page.
3: Practicing: Between now and EVO, I’ll start holding small (3-4 ppl max) sessions for certain titles. All this depends on my days off but for more info just call me (I’ll be practicing T5/3S/Cvs2/HSF2).
4: Finding deals on airfare/hotel/car rental to save $$$. Post your findings here. If there’s a hotel that’s only a few blocks away from the EVO event (and one that’s along the Strip) post it here as well. A dollar saved is… One extra dollar to tip the Strippers at the Crazy Horse or anywhere else.
More info to be posted when available.
I got plane tickets for me, Val and Anthony. Cost is $270.60 per ticket and it’s via http://www.alaskaair.com Below is our flight info:
Leave Portland on 8.17.06 (THU) Flight 606 @ 10:51am Arrive in Vegas @ 1:02pm
Leave Vegas on 8.21.06 (MON) Flight 155 @ 1:37pm Arrive in PDX @ 3:55pm
Try and get the same flights so we can all save on Taxi (if needed).
I called Red Rock Casino and asked for a 4 person rate, and the total came to about $1057 including taxes. It’ll be about $264 per person when divided by 4. Reservation will probably be put in tonight.
Reservation set! We just need 1 more person though. If you’d like that 4th spot in our room just let me know.
We’re all set to go. It’s gonna be Me, Val, Anthony and Sam Y in my room.
