Pilgrimage 2004: How many candies in the jar?

category: general [glöplog]
I'm starting this thread because I want to know what people are guestimating our turnout will be next month.

- Last year there was a peak of 75 people throughout the duration of Pilgrimage 2003.
- Legalize is predicting a likely turnout of 150, which is a fair and safe estimate.
- We are well prepared to accomodate a peak of 300 people.

So... Post your guesses here. Be it 2, 10 or 500. :)

-Around 30 "hardcore" guys
-Around 100 "softcore" guys

Just my prediction, hope I'm wrong and it turns out there are a lot more =P

Anyways, it'll be a smashing success!

I'm going to venture out and guess 200, but maybe I'm way off mark. Just curious if there are any clairvoyants out there that could guess the exact number. :-P

Maybe someone can guess the exact number, but you'll probably never be able to verify it because I still have to meet the first party organiser who knows *exactly* how many people visited the party. (And if you do know then your party was probably very, very small :-)

The problem is that on most parties there are always some guys sneaking in without paying, or being let in for free by people in the orgo crew or something like that...

Huh? That's what the surveillance cameras are for.

Err. I meant the Slengpung cameras, of course.

Comparing the number of BBS topics etc related to Pilgrimage with this years Assembly I'd estimate there will be at least 2000 sceners and 10k gamers.

Well, I'm showing up for sure. And Legalize is the organizer, so one can assume he'd show up.

I guess that makes two. At least.
Pilgrimage is unimportant.
(There you go..)

sparcus: you should know how many tickets you sold tho :)
people sneaking in or getting free entry don't count as "attenders" :D

I stand corrected. But my error in judgement shames me so much I fear being recognized in public. As a result, I shall cower at home instead of visiting Pilgrimage. So now we're back down to two.
You've done a better job of advertising Pilgrimage and raiseing demoscene interest in North America. I'll hazard a guess that you can achieve 300 visitors.
Was someone talking about softporn earlier on?

I didn't want to open a new thread and thought this one is the best:

On the homepage of the Ultimate Meeting (tUM) you can read:
Metalvotze, your friendly c64 group is presenting a c64-only pr0n competition. Just hand in c64 gfx with pornographic content! All gfx will be shown on the bigscreen and judged by certified Metalvotze members. There'll even be prizes!
The only requirements: c64, p0rn, workstages.

Not exactly candies but ... Metalvotze did it again! :)
