A huge chunk of the Skype chats I've been involved in the past have centered around the Australian/NZ/Southern Hemisphere members and well, Bloodex doesn't live in a timezone where he can host a Skype call when we're most active. Usually Nica would do such a thing, but since she has since gracefully departed from the forum/the Get-Together as far as I know, I'd love to host the Skype call at the times when Bloodex is sleeping. I mean, he can't exactly be awake all the time, lol.

We should have a PC Scavenger Hunt and maybe a Trivia contest that is not about Pokemon? I would gladly host those competitions though!

Yes, a trivia contest would be wonderful!!!!!!!! If this goes ahead, I'd like to also put my name forward for that (if Lady Gunner would let me do so).

Boom. This stuff's nice...
Seems like a lot of activities this year.
I'll have to volunteer or the Graphics & Pixel Art, I just have to (Great to see Logie hosting!).

And then I'm going to try to try out the Battle Server and the Anime Watch-Along, but I'm only a first-timer.

Most of these sound exciting!

The wordsearch/crosswords have always been popular. I'd be happy to host that again.

I think it would be cool if we could get someone to distribute pokemon to those taking part in the get together as a token of participation. Nothing serious, just a lv1 pokemon perhaps decided upon via poll as the 'get together mascot' with the OT name of PC2013 (can you have numbers in an OT name?). It'd be like our own little event pokemon.

Anyway I'd be happy to host or be involved in a Fifa 13 tournament if the events don't strictly have to follow a pokemon theme. Otherwise I'll be pleased to participate in the various other events.

The fact I work most of the week sorta makes me not able to host an event. Oh well.

But I might probably still take part in a few events, and maybe battle a bit on the Showdown server! The battles look like fun to do, even if I only do randbats there.

Anyways, I'll be expected to attend like always.

Every Get-Together needs an Egg Swap.

Haven't spoken to Nica about it yet but I'm sure she'd be up for co-hosting this with me.

Would it be conflicting to have an anime caption contest and an anime snapshots contest, like in past events? :s I would like to help in those or even possibly help out in the bug catching contest

In the 2011 get together, there was an Emblem Sketchers competition where members design their own emblems. Hoping that doesn't conflict with the other art events, I'd like to volunteer for that event if that is approved. :D

I'd do skype again this year, but I'm afraid school will be a factor for me so no skype for me this year :(

Retro Gaming event needs to happen too! :D I'm also up for volunteering for that too.

Speaking of gaming, with Starcraft II now accessible to anyone (with a good computer) thanks to Spawning, it would be cool if a Starcraft party happens. I'm up for volunteering/hosting for that.

Oh, another thing. Someone pleeeeeeeeeease do an iSketch event.

We could also do a special Hacking Seminar Event.

Things like ASM are very unclear to everyone. Right now, I wouldn't say that there are more than 30 active people who can do it well. In fact, the only names I can recall are mine, gogojjtech, karatekid552, Jambo51, and several others.

I'd love to co-host the Game Concept event as well as the Egg Swap if it is available.

I'd also loveeeeeeeeeee to host a Pokémon Design contest, although I would need some judges for that.
