I think this gathering may be cancelled...because my family will be going on vacation the monday of that week, for the entire week......
So unless Joanne wants to take over planning...well, that's it...sorry everyone (or anyone)
no gathering :(
EDIT [August 19 2009 at 8 55 pm EST]
I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but ending time may be around 5 (earliest) but likely 6.
Also, I'm thinking if there aren't too many of us, we could raid Walter's in square one, (just a thought if there are any musicians)
EDIT [August 15, 2009 at 12 37 EST (precise eh?)]
There may be a change in date...on account of me.... so either the date may change, or you will have the gathering without me with Joanne planning the rest......DISCUSS PLEASE, I NEED REASSURANCE (or I worry a lot, hehe :D)
but really, please spread this and discuss.
[Original note as follows]
Okay, so some of you may have remembered I tried to do one 6 months ago. Well that failed, so I'm doing it again, this time with a partner in crime :D
I recommend you read all of this along with the discussion, but there is (or will be) a video below
She and I are planning a Nerdfighter gathering in Mississauga, Ontario, with the info below:
-August 26, 2:00p.m. to whenever you wanna leave (see schedule below)
-(changeable to Fri, Aug 28 OR Sat, Aug 29 with same time if you speak up and promise to be there)
-------heck, if any of you live in that area, I'm willing to come all 3 days to meet any of you :D
-Meet in front of City Hall (the edge of the fountain closest to the building)
-However, I realize that some of you may not be from the area, so if you are arriving by
bus at the terminal, you will likely see Chapters if you walk out of the exit that is NOT the stairs.
If you want, you can wait at the front entrance (NOT the Starbucks one) or at the YA
(young adults) section next to John green's books.
-This will make sense if you see the schedule
1. Meet and greet.
............1 or so hours
.........If you need to leave at this time (Really?) feel free to.
..........if you need to leave (Come on... :D) go ahead
..........if you need to leave (hope you had fun) go ahead
5. Hangout until end of the day
...........(fun time eh?)
-I would suspect $20 or so will be enough. I'm not sure if you can go into Playdium or not,
but I'll see. I will update this as information progresses :D
-I have some stuff planned (secret projects with a certain miss-imagined person, maybe
make a video, and such), but the point of this is to meet REAL and LOCAL Nerdfighters!
One last thing. SPREAD THE WORD!! If you know nerdfighters in the area, tell them!
