The Argo Film Club screening (alpha)
The Argo Film Club will be presenting "Beetlejuice" for this year's festivities.

Costume Contest (beta)
First, Second, and Third place prizes will be awarded to winners. If you are interested in participating in the contest, please post your intention to enter as a reply, and have your costume prepared BEFORE the start of the event. Additionally, if anyone is interested, I'll take two volunteers and an alternate to help out as judges for the contest.


Other relevant seasonal offerings:

'West Elm Street' Holoprogram
Dae has built a "Trick Or Treat" foundry that is ICly deployed on DS13's holodecks and available to the general public to call up and run (or will be when he gets around to republishing it). You will want to search "ompgaming" under "Review Content" to find it, it's named "Trick-or-Treat". There may or may not be a creepy looking graveyard at the end of the map for shenanigans, too.

Or not, foundry's down. :p
I've already been dinking around with a costume for this year. :d
Tau won't be competing against his own crew, but Thue - Thue's participating. 100%!

It's on Sunday which means I'm out :(
Hey I'll plan on being there for the fun :)
Sadly, I cannot make it at those times. I work afternoons/evenings on Sundays.
I will be participating in the costume contest :d
Tilly will be in the contest.
I had been planning to do the costume thing but didn't see the part about posting here. Glad I caught it in time, lol. Alina for the record.

Rumiho will be in costume too... and in a character.. but with balancing two accounts I think she'll just be there for fun (and to serve people... it'll make sense).
i'll volunteer to judge the contest if there's still room lol
I would like to participate in the contest, but if you need help judging, I have experience doing so, here, and elsewhere Katriel.
Bump, this is today, all.

Please make sure your costume is prepared BEFORE the start time. I will also be looking for the volunteer judges to be available half an hour before the starting time for instructions, etc.

If I am not mistaken, I also heard murmurings that the EU may have undergone their time shift this weekend? If that's the case, please be aware that the time start may not be exactly what you think it is for EU people! (sorry. daylight savings sucks.)
BST did indeed end this weekend, so people who were observing summer time are now one hour behind until the US catches up in a week. This means that, for those regions that set their clocks back, Argo events will appear to be taking place an hour earlier than they were before the time change. e.g.: for BST observing regions, if Beta used to occur at 21:00/9PM, Beta will now occur an hour earlier at 20:00/8PM until the US comes off its Summer Time on 5 November.

Sadly I cannot make the event--I have a chapter deadline on Wednesday so I must 'ignite the midnight petroleum' for the next few days so that I can submit on time. :)
