Rock Band Rock Off
Hey... do you like to ROCK?
Introducing, new to Penguicon:
The ROCKBAND ROCK OFF
From 5:30pm - 7:30pm, with finals taking place from 7:30pm - 8:30pm in the big top!
Sign your band up @ Ops, limited slots available, bring your band and your style to this competition of attitude, band costuming, style, and game accuracy and ROCK OUT ON STAGE.
Suck at Rockband? Don't fret, dress up, play your hearts out and give the judges a show and you could STILL win!
Judges include: The Jer, Sheryl Bradakis, Gini, and The Ferrett!
Each team grabs components from a long heap of random systems and parts. Then they attempt to build a networked computer with it. The winner is chosen based on how many challenges they have functioning at the end of three hours-- challenges which are revealed as a surprise! A lean, organized team familiar with old hardware, lean distros, and configuration of basic network services is the key to victory here.
Tom and Dan Skelton will head up this event again, and are torturing each other's crafty little minds to see what devious tasks they can set the contestants. If you have any particularly nasty suggestions, by all means email them.
The Junk Pile is a bit thin this year, as corporate America hasn't been replacing computers as quickly lately. So we're looking for donations. We're fat on CRTs, hard drives and CD-ROM drives, but could probably use a few more cases, plus we're definitely short of memory, keyboards and mice. Tom can make arrangements for pick-up in mid-Michigan, or you can bring it to the con and heave it into their hotel room.
Please contact Dan or Tom at to let them know what you can donate.
Show off your costume at this event! See the Masquerade page for contest details!
