Keep this rolling, I'll be in Bulgaria on the July dates so would miss out on meeting up with Peter, my input for what it's worth is that a get together should include Peter and Sam since we all owe you so much and maybe there should be one in Europe, one in USA/Canada and one in Australasia for members to meet the founders and celebrate hitting the membership target ahead of time.
Good idea, I'm on if possible for me to get there, anywhere in Europe I suppose.
July and August are out of the question for me. Otherwise quite open to suggestions - and then again, some dates in August just might suit me - it's a bit difficult to tell in advance.
How about we make a list of say the top five most popular choices and average times, then maybe a TP member in that country could come back with possible venues, average costs of accomodation, beer, food, etc.......... that way for people on budgets its easier to plan ....... .... in honesty i don't know mind where it is but at the end of the day it will come down to cost... ...
I was thinking, if worse comes to worse, we could have regional TP meet-ups. One in NA, one in Europe, etc, etc. That way no one will be left out!
Just a thought...
Agree that to be fair there should probably be regional meets around the world in Nth America (am thinking that let the MTL 3 worry about that one , and Asia (think a KL one already in the pipeline) and others depedning who is where.
Also it would be great for Peter etc to be there as well, but not sure if there's enough people available this month at short notice. But if your thinking of coming back in Aug/sept anyway
From reading the European based responses however, the overwhelming feeling i'm getting from most people is that a mid september meet up seems to be best, with Dublin or possibly an cheaper Eastern European destination seemingly the favourite option.
Is that right or have i read that all wrong?
If so, and we chuck in a random weekend - say 17th-19th September, would that work for people??? If so, where is prefered:
Would people be willing to actually commit to something, instead of just saying, yes that's a good idea and when it actually comes around, nobody shows up
With a couple of months in hand, if there's enough people seriously interested, we could possibly even be clever and cut costs by maybe renting an appt or getting group rates in a hostel for a weekend.....?
But that would probably only work if people are prepared to sign up/put up deposit up front, or else somebody will end up with an expensive bill and no friends, and a hate of TP when everybody else pulls out at the end
Think i'd prefer an eastern European destination personally, as it will be cheaper and "more exotic", but Dublin would work for me as well (Hmmm...Guinness)
How about a nudist island in Croatia.
[ Edit: sorry, no website promotions in the forum please ]
lol, the weight of a North America meet-up rests on our shoulders
I guess I'll start things off...anyone up for something in Sept as well? Montreal would be my preference (just because I'm here, lol)...for those TP members in the good ole North America, what do you say? (And when do you say it! )
okay,,,,,, the weekend 17-19 Sept looks open at the moment for me, i could confirm for Dublin or UK for that weekend definetly , for the rest it would depend on flights and cost...........
Anyone else available the weekend 17- 19 ?????????
The more the merrier !! ( and drunker )
