HAF Member Meetup?
« on: July 06, 2008, 11:06:29 AM »
I don't have a date in mind, but, would anyone be interested in meeting in Vegas (or some place else) to be able to put faces with screen names?  I'm thinking small, nothing that would require paying additional fees on top of travel in order to rent conference space.  Also, I think the date should be picked for far enough in advance that everyone has a chance to properly plan their finances and schedules (like, some time next year).

I suggest Vegas because there is enough to do there that if, for whatever reason, you don't like hanging out with the members in person you will have plenty of other things to do.  Plus, Vegas is fun and travel packages tend to be affordable.

Next year as in 2009? Sounds fine to me. Vegas is only about an 8 hour drive from here (5 hours the way I drive). We should try to plan it between January and April to avoid the unbelievable heat.
I want bad people to look forward to and celebrate the day I die, because if they don't, I'm not living up to my potential.

I'm thinking sometime in the fall/winter since that is when hotels there are most affordable...and the temperature will be nice.

Btw, don't forget to vote in the poll  :D

So long as it's not around holidays, we should be okay. Halloween, Thanksgiving and December are all completely nuts.

I'd love to come but I'm not sure how things turns out with my move to the US next year.

Maybe.

I like the idea, but me coming to such a meetup depends on my ability to cash out the plane tickets for travel across Atlantic and yet another set of plane tickets for crossing the States.

It would be nice to do. How realistically I can manage it is another thing. Odds are against my being able to. I love the idea though, and I agree that Vegas is a good choice for a meetup.

Wow welcome back it's been almost 2 years since your last post. Glad you returned.

I think that was just from me bumping the thread....for some reason it changes the last post date.

That's what a bump does. It modifies the last post in the thread to make it look like a new post.
