...or the " one of these things just doesn't ... hold on wait " gathering...
The "Magic Chairs" Gathering

The timing and balance of gaming and hanging is always a tricky one.
Sometimes I feel we hit it right on the dot, and other times I feel
conflicting interests take control.
Above and beyond all else, I feel the AVC is a group of people with a
common interest: Virtual-On. The existance of a "crew", with the
list, chatroom, and
gathering itself, are social by definition. The
gathering is not focused on competitive gameplay but rather so the local
players have an opportunity to meet and relate from our common interest.
But our common interest in Virtual-On. The "Thursday gathering" is about
Virtual-On with whatever follows from that. (breather games,
post-gathering movies, etc.) If someone feels varying weeks gatherings
have or should have different focuses, then recommend a different
gathering be scheduled for such. The "Thursday gathering" is created
with the expressed purpose of a regular time to play Virtual-On with
your fellow AVC'ers - if this doesn't occur, I feel it betrays the
purpose of the gathering. I won't be party to that.
I've said the above, before, in previous gatherings summaries. I'm not
opposed to a focus shift in gatherings, but I am opposed to a "de facto"
co-op. As always, the list is available
... not that anyone reads this summary anyway.
