PwebCon/Gatherings/Shindigs/Meet-Ups

Postby Gravity Defier » Tue Mar 30, 2010 1:34 pm

Previously the PwebCon/Gathering/Shindig thread, now for meet-ups in general.


--------------------------------------
Update, for those interested:

Dates: August 12-16th, 2010
Location: greater Denver area
Airport: Denver International

Definites
Steph & Brian/eggbalancer
Alea

Maybe-Probably
ValentineNicole (said yes but I'll wait until ticket purchased to move to Definites)
Ed (same as Nicole's parenthetical)
Adam (barring any freak work issues, will be there)

Maybe-Maybe
Olhado_ (waiting to hear about job offer)
Virmoli/Virlomi/Janelle (checking calendar for conflicts)
Mich (Life stuff awaiting straightening out)
blueantoidgirl

Maybe-Not Likely-But-Hasn't-Ruled-It-Out
Elf (depends on family but might be in the area)
Wil (not sure what the thought process is but it involves water parks)
Megxers (Life stuff awaiting straightening out)
W_S-Chris (Life and mountain issues)

Chris and Janelle should have updates by the end of this month at the latest.

zero is on one of those lists, I think, but I'm not sure if his attendance is dependent on more people going so I'm leaving him off for now.


----------------------------------

I don't want to ruin Kim's lovely thread any further, so here we are.

For those who expressed interest, I have a few questions:

1) What year are you thinking? I left it kind of open with a 2.5 year window, so preference for 2010, 2011, 2012? I think it bares pointing out, it's possible to do more than one (as in, small gathering one year, bigger another).

2) For those in school, when does your school year start? Or, more generally, is there any time anyone can't go for sure? For me, the Director won't allow Children's librarians to go on vacation during the summer reading program, so June and July are automatically out the window for me (unless it's 2012 we're looking at).

3) Is Colorado okay with everyone, no matter the year? Ed seems to be willing to go anywhere, I certainly am, Steph is already there, Kirsten expressed interest. Mich? Jan (assuming you get things straightened out with Paul's schooling and such)? zero?

I'll send a text to Olhado_-Chris, since he once expressed interest in attending a gathering of any size, pretty much anywhere.

Basically, I think getting 5-10 of us for a first time would be a raging success given our track record.

2011 or 2012 summer time (May-August) would be best since that's when Paul is (probably) not in school. We are planning on having a 2nd kid eventually, so we'll have to see where that falls into those plans.

Colorado would be cool. I think it would be doable, as long as we are not in Newfoundland. If we're in NF, I think all bets are off. It's expensive to travel anywhere from there - and with kid(s) especially.


Unfortunately, we are really tight on money and our parents also live far away (in opposite directions), so much of our travel money is spent on visiting them. I would REALLY REALLY like to go to a pweb meetup. More then you know. But, I'm just saying, it'll be hard. A lot of things about our family's future is up in the air right now while we wait on Paul's school stuff.

I was going to start a thread myself, but you beat me to it. I'm adding my support for Colorado.

I say we shoot for spring/summer 2011, it's far enough in the future to give us time for planning and give everyone time to save up money and free up space in their calendars. At the same time, it's close enough that hopefully we can avoid procrastinating and losing interest like we've done in past. Additionally, it meets both your rather vague "next 2.5 years" requirement and Kimmie's more specific "not during '11-'12 school year" one.

I also propose we make this a recurring event, sort of like a family reunion but for your Pweb family instead of your genetic one, either annually or at least every few years. But we need to focus on getting the first one done before we get ahead of ourselves.

1) I prefer 2012, sometime after May. My time is not my own from May 2011 to May 2012. I could potentiall swing late December 2010/early January 2011.

2) My school year tends to start in late august and end in early may.

3) I could do Colorado... it's not my favorite place in the world, but it's alright.

This is why I think it needs to be recurring. Using Kim as an example, she probably won't be able to make it to the first one in let's say May 2011, but maybe she can come to the second one a year later. We'll have a small group the first year, then hopefully it will grow over time with new people attending each year in addition to most of the group from the previous year(s). But again, we have to have a first Pwebcon before we start planning the second or third one.

Sounds good to me. If (general) you can't make one, you might be able to make the next year's, or something like that.

Anyhow, I'm just throwing this out, even if no one else can make it this year, I will be asking Steph if I can visit in August (and I'll likely ask Ed to forego the Western loop we'd talked about to join me in CO instead). Even if it meant I only got to see just those two. Because I <3 Steph and Ed is awesome. I'd still be willing to do a 2011 and/or 2012, so that wouldn't count me out of anything.

With that said, I'm being bad. Back to headache...I mean, back to work.

I'm graduating in May, so, presumably, starting this summer and onward I'll be a fully functioning adult with a real job and vacation time, as well as a flexible budget due to my mad money-managing skillz. Meaning no matter what I tell you, it's hard to say whether I'd actually be able to make it to anything or not. So I guess the later it is, the more likely I'd be able to go (what with increased stability), but no matter when or where I will try my hardest to be able to go.

Meaning Colorado = a-okay, as far as I can see. I might even be living there, who knows!

See, my thinking is if we can hold off on teasing the midget right now, it'll be that much more fun to tease her in person. ;)

With a Z...Nice!

I would be down for Colorado instead of doing the loop(assuming Steph doesn't mind me crashing the party), but the loop sounded fun. So if Colorado happens this year, we might have to plan the loop for another time.

For me, the sooner it happens, the more likely I can guarantee my attendance. I mean, I really don't know what I'm doing next week, let alone two and a half years from now. I could be married, have a kid(s), be unemployed, be working on a crazy project that requires me there, etc. The possibilities are endless. But I know for this year that I have means and time available to do something. I would assume I would next year as well, but I can't guarantee anything. The year after that even less so. But I would definitely try to be there no matter what, no matter where it is. But I don't really do the whole planning thing, so just tell me where and when to so up and I should be there.

Are you serious? I'd love for you to visit!!!

And I didn't really expect people to be so down for Colorado, but I'm happy everyone is. I'm a SAHM, so I'd be able to make some plans for the event with relative ease.

I'd be game for a Pwebcon. But pretty much anywhere is difficult for me. Colorado is feasible during/around the school year (August-April). Though in 2011/2012 I might not be going back to Alaska for summer, so maybe those could work. My plans for the next couple years are kind of up in the air right now, but if there is a gathering close by (and I have a car), I'd love to go.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

I am game for this. if you will allow historical members and unsuccessful lucker.

But seriously, we need 1-2 years to plan this? How big are we planning on making it? I participate in meetups all the time, on other sites where someone post a meetup that will take place in 3 to 6 months. We just usually meet at a restaurant or bar or someplace public like that and go from there and these are people who come from all over the world. In fact, I should visit that site again, if only to satisfy my traveling bug. 8)

But, if you are planning a large event, then I am still game; but similar to what Ed said it the further down the line the less I can guarantee anything. :)

Yeah, well that's easy if you
a) have money
b) don't have kids
c) don't have a job that requires you to book all vacation time a year in advance.

Randomly, I will probably be in the Rockies in the summer. As for beyond this summer, I can't say where I'll be living/working/schooling, so I have no idea. As for the recurring idea, I think maybe "regional cons" could be fun too, ie a Washington State meetup or Southwestern US one.

Oh, go ahead and tease. This has all been one big tease, it seems. *sniffle*

If not a tease, it's certainly been a repeat of all the past conversations.



As for me, I'm serious, Steph. With or without Ed, or any other Pwebber, I'd like to travel this August and I've been dropping CO as a possible place to go left and right in conversations I've had with my little brother. I thought about going back to Chicago, making a yearly trip until the Big Day but then, I've been twice, will go back, and I want to see you.

Summer Reading ends July 31st and Admin is pretty much expecting Youth Services to run away; I'll have a week if Janelle visits me here in AZ (though I've asked her to consider us meeting in CO in August), two if she doesn't. I could stay for as long as I could afford to feed and lodge myself. I'd also want to go when it'd allow me the most time to see you, of course.

I would totally be in for a pweb get together (and I love the idea of having it a couple of years down the road, for money reasons).

Colorado is a good idea, i've wanted to visit, and I do have family there. Where in Colorado?

I mean, hopefully i'll have a real job that has vacation time and some spending money. So, with all that allowing, i'm in!

I could plan Denver area, Northern Colorado (including RMNP), or the Colorado Springs area, (or a combination, since they are really not that far apart) depending on what people were interested in. Or, we could get some condos in Steamboat or Glenwood Springs.

You'll need to let me know what details I need to let you know.

Date: Aug. 12th-16th - That's a Thursday through Monday, with Thursday and Monday being the travel days for me. Specific times won't be posted here but I'll PM those if they matter at all.

Hotel: Not sure. That depends on how many/who shows up. I'll do single sex or co-ed sleeping arrangements, bed, floor, whatever.

Activities: Not sure. That also depends on how many/who shows up. Nicole and I discussed doing a Sunday brunch (in your Sunday best sort of thing but honestly, if that requires I go from carry on only to check in, I may say to hell with that ;)) and watching a so-bad-it's-good movie at some point but that's all assuming she doesn't flake and assuming it works with whoever is there.



Beyond that, which isn't all that helpful anyway, there's not much to tell at the moment. This should change the closer it gets.

ETA: I'm treating this, as best as I can, as a Steph and I trip until I get verification that tickets are being purchased. Not that I don't trust you all but we flake quite often; it'd be best for me to assume nothing.

You know what's in Colorado? A huge-ass awesome water park!

I'm considering it, but I'm only in the speculation "maybe-not likely but-hasn't-ruled-it-out" part of this, but if I do come it would be all by my lonesome, and I'd drive... mostly because I hear the drive on 70 is awesome.

I'm also in the maybe-but-hasn't-ruled-it-out camp. It is just after my one year Pweb anniversary but this summer is going to be busy/expensive/all over the place.

I heard that Kansas is a boring s*** hole to drive through. :P

Also, I'm serious about that water park. *hint hint* I mean, it IS going to be upper 80's in August for Denver. *nudge nudge* Plus, water parks are fun!

mostly because I hear the drive on 70 is awesome.
It's certainly not from the other direction. *curses Kansas*
I heard that Kansas is a boring s*** hole to drive through. :P
No kidding. Particularly the western half of the state.

Took many a trip as a kid from Texas to North Dakota. I could never, ever sleep in the car. I was constantly looking out the window. I just kind of felt like, if I fell asleep, there was a chance I would miss something.

However, I would sleep like a baby through Kansas. Even I knew that there wasn't going to be anything there -- even though I stayed awake through West Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and the Dakotas.

(The highways are generally really nice, though.)
There's another home somewhere,
There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...

Seven hours of nothingness. It feels like you'll never get out. And keep in mind this is coming from a guy who went to a high school that was located in the middle of a f**king corn field.
Step softly; a dream lies buried here.
