SHWINGFEST '95: Party update

Fri Apr 28 23:40:56 EDT 1995

The Thursday night Sultans of Shwing "Shwingfest '95" Dayton party suite was
again a great success, however it didn't start out that way...

N0BSH, WE9V, WX9E and I arrived at Stouffer's around 3:30pm.  After unloading
our stuff (including the computer for the TR contest plus 13 cases of beer &
soda), WX9E and N0BSH went around the hotel putting up about 50 posters
advertising our little party.

Around 5pm the hotel General Manager and one of his hired goons knocked at
our door, holding a fist-full of our posters.  "We cannot allow these
posters... Beavis and Butthead isn't is what Stouffer's is about."  (we had
B&B on our posters).  He proceeded to tell us that fire codes prevent us from
having more than 8 people in our room at any one time (it's a small room!).
 Further, he declared that if our party got out of hand, he'd shut us down.

Did we let more than 8 people in our room?  Judge for yourself as I've
included the sign-in sheet below.  Did the party get out of hand?  Well,
about 4 am we called hotel security because some drunk W9 dude drop-kicked a
ceramic lamp near the elevator, just past our room.  A friendly K2 portable 6
dude witnessed the crime and helped us apprehend the Jan Stenerud wannabe,
saving the Sultans of Shwing from getting blamed for the busted lamp.

With that taken care of, we came back to the room and posted the results of
our TR simulator competition to the reflector and hit the sack.  The morning
was pretty tough on all of us, as G3RZP visited us again... this time with a
bottle of Jim Beam in his hand.

Now to the other suites.....
