A dramatic pre-enactment of the race.


Peter: Where are we?
Ray: Looks like the mid-teens.
Peter: Well, when we get to twenty let me know. I'm gonna throw up.

lol +1

We should probably let the Marriott staff know we're coming so they can place garbage cans at strategic intervals.

They can be the pit stops.

I am so glad to hear this concept is being brought back. Still not sure about the drunken part, no desire to get concussed, but I will be in attendance. those stairs are a real workout.

So, I posted something like this last year also.  I ended up not even being able to do it(because I hurt my knee the first night).

A couple years ago at *con, I decided to have a random drunken race with some guy I met on the Atrium level of the Marriott.  It was basically just, "Lets see who can get to the top level first".

I kinda want to make an event out of this.  I believe it could be fun..., especially the more people we get involved.

Anyone else even moderately interested in doing something like this?

Did you win?

I did.   
Although, it wasn't really much of a fun race though.  Basically he was about 2 stories ahead of me until about the halfway mark, then he started slowing down.    I finally passed him about 3/4 of the way up, and then I stayed about 2 stories ahead of him.

Yup,  this sounds hysterical.

For the record, i will be participating, not just cheering, cause i want to see all the antics as they occur (not just hear about them cause i was 1floor away spectating the wrong thing)  and i will be drunk,to prevent the pain from slowing me down.

Post the time and count me in.

Yes! There could even be scheduled stairwell changes at certain floors to allow people to gather and cheer the racers, lol. The Marriott has so many of them hidden away behind various doors.

Do we want to schedule an actual day and time for this? Or is it too soon?

I would think it would have to be early... like Thursday mid-afternoon, to avoid the traffic.  Is there a time and date for this?

To be honest, the last time I did it, it was definitely at night sometime..., kinda during peak hours.    I don't think we passed a single person on all 47 floors.

I just don't want this to interfere with any of the other M&G's or parties that people may be going to.   

I'm thinking maybe Saturday Night around 10PM?   Does this sound do-able to those that are interested?

 That is about the most prime time out of the entire CON. I will have to play it by ear.
