DS meet in Los Feliz...

...Or any of your local theaters. I'm sure a ton of you are going to be in line to see that silly movie about a frog, midichlorians & light sticks. Don't forget to bring your DS. I'm sure someone will be there willing to Pictochat, Mario DS, Metroid Hunt or something with you.

I'll be at the Vista theater in Los Feliz at around 1:45 or 2 for the 3:45 showing. I'm bringing a flask of Tequila. Attendance for nds_la will be mandatory. I'm sure some of you can take a half day. It's Star Wars. I used to take the WHOLE day off just to buy tickets. Please show up early.
Vista - 4473 Sunset Boulevard - Los Angeles, CA 90027 - (323) 660-6639

What up! I'm the Moderator from ds_oc. I'd like to extend an invitation from behind the orange curtain.

If anybody is interested, we're having a meetup in Tustin tomorrow night around 8pm.

Check This Post for the address and other misc info. Some non-LJers will be there too.

It's kinda last minute, but I figured I'd just throw this out there anyways.

Hope to see you there.

Friday, June 3rd

i haven't abandoned anyone... ok, i lie. i've been busy. BUT, i say YES. Game On, June 3rd.

Where? I say polite no to the coffee shop. Either a bowling alley, bar or taco-stand. Yeah, you heard me. A taco stand. Like the one in pasadena, that serves beer. and food. and has tables. But at least a bar.

What time? 7PM, so people can make it from work?

And please bring all your games. If someone has one of those network cards, i have a laptop i'm willing to experiment on with that wifi-me thing.

Ok kids. This is what I'm proposing for now. It's only a proposal and it isn't set in stone. But here is the jist. I'm thinking of having an event once a month at a regular location. Maybe on off-months or every other month we take field trips. The field trips can be having DS meets on the Metro Rail or a Metro Bus to the beach? I don't know. Could be at a bar or restraunt in Hollywood? or Downtown? In the grass in Venice Beach? I need ideas.

But lets start at square one and go from there. When and Where should we have our weekly meet?

I propose the first Friday of every month at Mr.T's Bowl in Eagle Rock. What say you?

FAQ - Please Read

Why a local group?

Los Angeles is too large and has too many ZIP codes for or to work well. Those sites work great in other states and towns. Those places only have a few ZIP codes. But not LA, NY or any densely populated area. Within 5 miles of my house are about 10 Zip codes. Yes, I live in LA.

While I don't have a problem being the central pointman for organizing an event in LA. You cannot expect me to collect IMs, Cell numbers & emails of everyone that is interested. You're also insane to think that I would IM, call and/or email each and every one of you. If there were only 3 or 4 of you, I would. But guess what? I already have 3 or 4 friend that I play with. I'm thinking on a much larger scale for this. I'm talking dozens if not hundreds.

Some of the general communities don't like Local Only information. For some reason everyone gets upset when someone posts something of LOCAL interest. I know this first hand, because I got scolded a few times, by the largest nintendo DS community on LJ, nintendo_ds. Yes, I got scolded because I posted local information. That was the main reason I started the local group.

Isn't there enough clutter from nintendo_ds?

Some people complain that their email gets cluttered with all the daily emails. They just need to turn OFF email notification. Another trick is to only JOIN the community but don't add as a friend. Some people don't know they can do that. JOIN, but uncheck the ADD TO FRIENDS box.

But, why a LOCAL group?

The best way to organize information is to have a CENTRAL location for people that are interested to visit. A Local Community is the only way that it will work. I know this out of experience. I've created and ran several communities, ranging from gamers to drunks.

Basically, the Local Group, nds_la or ds_oc, is for Local info, like meets, local sales, etc. The General NDS group, nintendo_ds, is where you get all your latest news and stuff that is universal.

In reality, it is actually more organized this way. Visit the local community whenever you want to find out about LOCAL information, to see if there is a local meet coming up, etc. Visit the general community daily to keep up with the latest in nintendo DS information.

welcome to nds_la

it's sunnier here. Please spread the word and join the community. Now that we have the community created, next project is to have the first NDS LA meet & wifi-party.

Lets hear your ideas, concerns and questions. It's about gaming and community here.

PS. Sony Fanboys, leave your egos behind. We know. We don't care. Most true gamers don't care what the platform is. We really just want to play the games.
