    I didn't get the flu I don't think, but had a really bad cold when I got home. Lots of head congestion and a runny nose that is still just clearing up. Too much shaking hands and germ exchange for everyone at the event I think.

    Comes with the territory, but I'd trade the flu for a weekend like that again anytime. CES was a good time, and the XS event was definitely one of the highlights.

    Yeah I had lots of friends go and more than half ended up with swine fever... :S I felt bad during my trip to Taipei after CES last year but I think it was a combination of allergies in a foreign place that I am not used to as well as "Big City" type smog / or whatever.

    Finally, my event summary article is complete. Many of the pictures you have already seen if you've been following this thread or looking around. Many of the pictures have not been seen publicly previously. Many of the details were dug out of pages buried in this long thread, or gathered via PM/email, all pictures were used with permission from the people who took them, and with fugger's permission to do whatever with pictures from the party.

    If you have any corrections, additions, or criticisms... Feel free to share. Hopefully, a little extra coverage will help to keep events like this happening, to give us a reason to get together, drink some beer, and have a good time benching.

    Some highlights from the past few days.

    Mikeguava > K|ngp|n > Trouffman at Kart racing
    Mike won the kart racing event + $1000

    Grats to the MOA winners and Thanks MSI for a great event that went as good as one could want.
    Intel sent over many engineers throughout the event, Mr Skulltrail, Steven, Rahul, Kevin, Francois, and the guy with the mohawk.
    The MOA contestants had a meet and greet with the Isreal Sandy Bridge design team, five of the Sandy Bridge design team answered questions as they watched the overclocking in progress.

    Vince, Shamino, Gautam, BrianY, Ronaldo, Cwiss, Yuri, Gnidaol, Mikeguava and I went out on the Jeep tours from Red Rock down towards Good Springs. It was washed out bad and snow covered on our first trip.

    The party went great, both bands made it, no one got arrested and prizes went to those did not expect to be hooked up.

    Corsair Force SSD's, GTX3, 1200HX, 1000HX
    Western Digital 2 Caviar Black 1TB, 500GB Notebook HD, 64GB SDD
    EK water blocks
    Danger Den variety of lit reservoirs and parts
    Mountain mod cases
    Asus Maximus IV Extreme, Rampage III Extreme, Crosshair Extreme, P8P67, and other stuff

    Some guys took home enough parts to build a system, some got to pick a part.

    The food was really good, the girl band Apocolypstick (sp?) and Pain Cylinder played four sets till 11PM

    Thanks Planet for the many beers from Corsair. I hope someone got a pic of you with Francois this year.

    Gabe from Swiftech was a trooper from start to finish and there was a group picture with Jeremy, Dennis, Eddy, and Alex (Petra).
    Darthbeavis had a watercooled rig on display, V2-V3 had a water cooled Sandy Bridge on the bench.

    No one got arrested this year. I need to get some rest before I complete the thanks thread, lets see some more pictures.
    Fugger, Mikeguava, Kingpin, Great Guys!!!!!!

    I saw snow for the first time!!!! I liked the Spring Mountain Tour and XS Party..

    It forgives me, I did not talk very, therefore I do not speak English very well.

    I don't forgot Vegas, amazing place!!!!!!

    Yes Ronaldo, Fugger and all guys, thousands and thousands of miles from my house too.
    18 hours of Fly from Baires.
    But maybe i'll see you there next year, I go to LA. to visit my family there, if you allow me, if I can participate with you.
    Even if only, to share a beer "corona" with you.

    Congratulations for this incredible party
