Recommended Posts

Attention MacrossWorld!


The con season is approaching and we've finally decided on a date and time for MacrossWorld Con 2008. Sorry for the delay in posting information about the event, but you can trust me when I say this will be the best MacrossWorld convention we've ever put on! I will be posting all new information in this thread including possible guest appearances and event details.

This year we will have a 2 day event starting on Saturday, July 19th and finishing on Sunday, July 20th.

9am-6pm at Long Beach ARC (3150 E. 29th St. Long Beach, CA 90806)



Day 1: Frank and Sons/Poker/Macross Viewing and Game Night


This year we're going to kick off MWcon on Saturday by having an informal meet and greet at everyone's favorite SoCal toy show, Frank and Sons! For folks from out of town, this is easily one of the best things SoCal has to offer toy collectors of all sorts. Check out their website here

We will meet at 12pm at the main entrance next to the Food vendors and make our way to the different vendors including some with Macross merchandise. We have members that are frequent F&S visitors that know some of the vendors very well so we'll make sure to introduce anyone who might be looking to purchase anything. ^_^

After Frank and Sons, everyone will have time to get lunch or hang out a bit before heading down to the Long Beach ARC for our annual MWcon Poker Tournament and games. More info on the poker tournament to come, but we will also have video games set up to play for anyone not playing in the tournament. In addition, there will be a big screen for watching episodes of Macross Frontier and other other Macross series and movies for the night.

Day 2: MWcon Events Day/Exhibition Room/Special Guests

As in traditional MacrossWorld Cons, Sunday is our main day where we will set up the main exhibition room with tons of Macross displays, customs, and stuff for sale. The exhibition room will open at 9am and we'll close around 5pm. The schedule for the day has not been finalized but we will have some fun events for everyone to participate in and as always, we'll have our customs contest featuring some of the best Macross Customs this site has ever seen that will be EXCLUSIVELY premiered at the con. This is definitely something you don't want to miss!

We will also have a special performance of live Macross music by one of our own member's band!!! I will post more events for the day as the event gets closer.

Macross World 3rd Annual Poker Tournament

This year's MWcon Poker Tournament will take place on Saturday, July 19th, 2008 at the Long Beach ARC. The tournament will start at 6pm and run until there is a MWcon Poker Champion.

This is a No-Limit Texas Holdem poker tournament and prizes will be given out to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.

Maximum Players: 18 (3 tables of 6 players each)

Buy-in Amount: $20 + $5 to the LBARC (total $25) No Rebuys

Prizes: To be determined but will have a prize value of approximately $200 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place, and $60 for 3rd place.

Players will get $1000 in chips to start with and will follow the following blind structure:

15 minute blinds

-1st hour-

10-20

20-40

30-60

40-80

-5 Minute Break-

-2nd hour-

50-100

75-150

100-200

150-300

-5 Minute Break-

-3rd hour-

200-400

300-600

400-800

500-1000

Blinds will continue to raise by 100 every 15 minutes after the 3rd hour is up until 1 player is declared the winner. When tables are uneven, we will move players from the table with the most players to table with the least. We will move the person that was in the same position relative to the Dealer Button as the player that was just eliminated.

General Rules

-No rabbit chasing

-No discussing hands if it's in the same deal, even if you already folded.

-A player can't hint or discuss possibilities of their folded hands.

-The next dealer shuffles their own cards.

-If the big blind is taken out during a hand, there will be no small blind for the next deal.

-We'll seat people randomly.

-If there's a push and there's an odd chip left, then the kicker decides who gets it. If the kicker is the same then the odd chip goes into the next pot.

-English only on the table.

-No cell phones while seated on the table.

-No eating on the tables.

-No pouring drinks on the tables.

-No spilling on the tables.

-Players must show all their highest denomination chips at all times.

-Verbal declarations are binding.

-No string betting.

-No actions out of turn. They may be binding.

-You can only call "time" on a long decision if you're still in the hand. Players that have folded cannot call "time". A person has 30 seconds to decide. 20 seconds will be silent and then there's a 10 second verbal countdown. The player will forfeit the hand if they fail to decide.

-No coaching other players.

Reserving a Seat

In order to reserve a seat, please PM me or email MWCon2008@gmail.com telling me that you would like to reserve a seat in the Poker Tournament. Buy-ins MUST be paid before the con and after you have sent payment, I will post your name here confirming your poker tourney registration. If you want to pay for the tournament via Paypal, send $25 to MWcon2008@gmail.com and select "service" under category of purchase and write a note saying "Poker tourney registration" If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post here in the thread!

Once again I can't make it. Its to close to my semi-annual business trip to Asia. I've come to the conclusion that I will never make a MWcon. :angry:

To let you know that it is also the same weekend of Wonderfest in Louisville.

Its a scifi, anime, monster modelers convention. A nice dealers room where you can find all sorts of kits, supplies, books, etc. I've gone the last 2 years and it is fun. A few guys off of this site go there as well.

FROM SAVE, OUR RESIDENT MEMBER IN JAPAN, AND MY HERO

Yamato 1/48 VF-1s 25th Anniversary Edition (quantity 1 donated by Over-Drive)

Macross drinking/shot glass (quantity 12 donated by me but most came from Queen Dolce Akihabara)

Macross Frontier Ver. 1 posters (4 donated by Queen Dolce Akihabara)

Macross Frontier AM/PM promo poster (2 donated by Queen Dolce Akihabara)

Tons of promotional fliers for last years 25th Anniversary Concert, Yamato Macross Toys, Macross DVDs, and music fliers. There should be enough for everybody who attends to get some fliers.

There are a few other odds and ends I'll end up tossing in I'm sure.

Looks like we have what may be the grand prize for the custom contest. We're possibly going to raffle off the shot glasses (and have free shots for people that win them, haha...) and give aways at the door.

Please stay tune! for more announcements!

the minmay hostesses all have "no photos allowed" on them... besides, the flash bounces of the dancing poles and renders the video unwatchable anyway, so videotaping would not be an option. You'll just have to see it for yourself. Come for the lapdances, stay for the donkey show! Debauchery all around!
