Pft, look at all of you wanting free ITG. You'd think I was running a soup kitchen!   Grin

Seriously though, if I need any help or advice, I know I've got people here I can ask.

well that's not the ONLY reason we want to help  Grin

Sakuracon might be willing to provide free storage of the machine if you let them use it.  I'd talk to Jon (DMN) about it.  Try emailing him at programming@sakuracon.org.

Also, I'd be willing to pay to replace up to four sensors if necessary (I'll do six if you're fine with PIU sensors) if it's at Sakuracon; I'd really like to have an ITG2 Dedicab for the tournaments.

You know if you really can't find anywhere to put it permanently right now, might I suggest Sakura-con maybe? It'd be pretty awesome to have an ITG 2 Dedicab there, but then again. It's all up to you obviously.

put it in the movie theater at southcenter mall

yeah, but It'd be nice to have it somewhere not so close to another ITG2 dedicab.
It'd be awesome to have it at gameworks, because then it would only be a 2 minute walk from my apartment. Then again, this is gameworks I'm talking about so scratch that idea.

It's official. My buddies and I now own our own ITG2 machine. Sadly, it's in a ministorage unit, untested, until we can find a place to set it up.

Does anyone have any locations within 20 miles of Seattle that they can think of that we could setup this machine for public use? YMCA/Boys & Girls clubs, Gyms, Bowling Alley?

I'm specifically looking for anyone who can give me assistance in dealing with these organizations. For instance, I wouldn't mind putting it in a YMCA or Boys & Girls club, but I need to get a hold of the right people to set some rules, etc. Same with a gym. I think this would be a great piece of "equipment" for a gym to have, but I don't know anyone who I can get a hold of to suggest this.

Anyways, I'm just seeing if anyone out there has any ideas. I can't make any promises about where I will place this thing, but I'm all ears and open to any suggestions.

As of right now it's chilling in a ministorage on the other side of the state. We're going to move it this summer when a) the weather is better and b) we have a place to put it. The last time we played it, the machine was in great shape, but that was 6 months ago and that was before we purchased it. Soooo, we're not exactly sure this thing is in top shape. That's half the reason we want to get it setup someplace, is to get it into top shape.

Thanks for your ideas. I will look into some of these more. The problem with places that already have an existing arcade (i.e. college's, bowling alleys, malls) is that they usually have exclusive contracts already in place through their current distributor. So a person like myself can't put my lone ITG 2 machine there. I will keep an eye out and keep poking around for possibilities.

From what I can see, the majority of the people running around who would play on a DDR/ITG2 machine are college-age (19-25, for the most part), so maybe you're just talking about UW, but I think a big part of the reason DDR's not doing well in arcades anymore is because most of its fanbase went off to college debtland.

Anyway, I'm sure there are other colleges near Seattle to talk to about it.  Portland has, like, 8 different colleges I can think of (PSU, UP, AIP, Reed, Marylhurst, CCC, PCC, MHCC), and Seattle's got twice the population, so I'm sure there are plenty of good candidates.

And to be honest, I think that the only place a machine can realistically make a profit is in a college environment or if it's being rented out to events and parties.
