Quakecon 2006!!!!!

Post by Thor » Sat Jun 24, 2006 7:40 pm

Quakecon has finally been announced!

We know you all have been waiting to find out about QuakeCon 2006, and we want to thank you for your patience. We’ve had some unexpected issues locking in the dates and location, but don’t worry, we’re still bringing you another kick-ass QuakeCon event, and it’s already right around the corner - August 3 – 6 in Dallas, TX at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in their Trinity Exhibition Center.

With about 1,800 BYOC spots, QuakeCon 2006 will be a bit more exclusive than it has been the last couple of years, but we hope people will enjoy the more personal touch this year. QuakeCon 2006 will of course include all the great activities that it’s known for, including high-stakes tournaments, workshops, exhibitors, the BYOC Area, parties, and the public’s first chance to play Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.

I'll be there, will you?

doubt it, $500 for hotel room, 300 in gas and food to get there... plus a 12 hr drive.

Its looking like it would cost less to go to the lan in STL that weekend, plus i would get to see more of my friends :)

Hah.. drive 2minutes and get a hotel for half-1/3 the price? I mean.. you don't have to stay in the freaking Hiltons.

Just a tip dragon, but with the small size of the BYOC this year, I'd do whatever you can to get there before noon on Thursday. After that they could start taking the FCFS line at any time and you stand a chance to lose your spot.

1800. I suppose "small" needed to be quantified.
