@pyromagnestir and I were tossing around the idea of creating a Massachusetts-based meet-up of some sort to honor Ryan Davis. The idea is still an embryo at the moment, but if it garners support, who knows. I just want to know if there are any of you duders who would be interested in getting together. Clearly it would be easiest for MA folks or people relatively nearby to get here. But, if we can establish some means of getting more people here, I would love it. I guess I just have to ask, anyone out there interested?

Please keep us posted. I thought PAX East would have been great, but I am up for something sooner.

@earlessshrimp: Hey I didn't know you were in Massachusetts, I am too. Let me know if any plans are made.

I would love to set something up sometime this summer, but I think a PAX East meetup goes without saying! oh, and @mtcantor head over here too, that other thread was an accidental double post from the site explosion last night.

@earlessshrimp: Perhaps you could get a hold of these guys: http://gameoverboston.com/. I've always been meaning to go, and it sucks it could take such a tragedy to finally get over my procrastination, but in Ryan's memory it would be cool to finally get together with fellow duders and gaming culture enthusiasts to pay tribute to the man. My brother and I have no outlet outside of each other that shares our passion for gaming and Giant Bomb, so we'd be up for it. Fitting day too. Tuesdays Forever in Boston, MA!

I was thinking about making a NH thread but maybe the Mass Duders and NH Duders could meet up. That Game Over place seems cool. We could also go to the Pinball Wizard in Pelham NH, Right over the boarder next to Meuthen, MA. Jeff, Rich and Ryan went there and loved it. It's my local arcade. I will keep watching this thread, I'd love to meet up with some people.

What is this "Massachusetts" you speak of? Is is some sort of casino or something? I like casinos!

Fuck yeah Pinball Wizard. That place is amazing.

@earlessshrimp: Yes, for sure. It'd be cool to meet fellow Bombers in the MA area. I'll keep checking this post for updates. Hope something works out.

So far it seems that weekend eve's would be best. Or just weekends in general. I think we might be gearing for roughly august to do this?

I'm also interested.

I would vote for a PAX East meet up, or at the very least a second meet up at next PAX East where there will be more folks.

Does "MA" mean "Boston" or elsewhere in the state? If Boston, I'm there. If elsewhere, I'll go if able.

Update: Sounds like some shit is going down on the 27th.
