Anyone think they would be up for a meet up in NYC in October? No particular date in mind - other than a weekend. I’ve convinced the hubby that it would be fun. So, who’s up for it?

I'm always a possible, but so far no go.

I'll probably be there. Too early for me to plan anything specific, but early in the month should be fine for me.

It is a long way away, but I think I could come up in Oct. Nothing in the calendar as of yet.

Keep us updated

I just have to plan that far ahead to make sure we have the money. We cant do it sooner - well maybe late September - because of his job. I already travel enough without him, I want to include the hubby in something.

I understand completely, it is much less expensive for me to come that way (20 for round trip train fare, plus the little bit of gas to get to the train station) - so I can get there any time. Just if it is a week day I need to know far enough ahead of time to take the day off.

And October will be a pretty time to have a picnic in Central Park (we did that last year near the end of the year).

Oooh, and another trip to the American Museum of Natural History! We might be able to see the 2/3rds of the museum that we missed last time. :) Or we could try the Museum of Modern Art. Or a plan C...

Sorry for necromancy, but I figured you might like to know NY Comic Con (http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/) is the weekend of October 8.

I know it's a weekend, but maybe something can be figured out.

No need to apologize. We're pro-necromancy around here. :p

Mmm, Katee Sackhoff. I won't bother with questions, the drooling would prevent me from speaking anyway.

So do we want to start planning a meetup for Oct 8 at NY Comiccon?
I can do that, but I also wouldn't mind a weekday meetup and do lunch in the park like last year.
(Also, I've been asking for a lot of weekend days off, and it's been tough on the ol' co-workers.)

Quick bump on this thread. I know it's still a little early to plan, but if we want to do the NYCC, I need to get as much heads up as possible for tickets, funding and work scheduling as possible. Or we can do a movie or lunch in the park again. Suggestions?

I do a podcast so I have a press pass to be at the NYCC all weekend. Hope to see some of the GWC people there its a fun con.

I do believe there is a contingent that will be there, I am guessing on Saturday.

I think I will only be up Sat (will ride the train in from Philly area), but definitely planning on being there.

queenohearts (although her forum name is something else)
Janitorbob

Any body else?? Talos, Badger, Yorrick, Tanu??? I guess I should send a message on FB that is normally where I find Yorrick and Tanu.

Can I just show up or do I need to purchase tickets before hand? I'll probably be there either way.

I would suggest buying in advance. Not sure if it was last year they sold out on Sat...and the con was in Feb last year.

The Sat ticket was 40, and the whole weekend was 50

That's OK, hopefully the line won't be too long to pick up tickets.

So I guess you and J-bob and I need to figure out what the plan is for Saturday morning. We have time yet though.

I just noticed this thread (been a bit busy, to the point that it's been four days :eek: since I've visited GWC). Alas, October is right out for me. December would work, though. I need to be in NYC from 12/10 to 12/13 for a performance.

I'm planning on getting into the city on either the 8:40 or 9:40 AM train into Grand Central on Saturday. Because of work schedules, I don't know if my local friends are going to be able to make it with me. I can probably meet up with the Philly crew at Penn Station like last time, then we can meet the rest at the Javits center. Any other ideas?

No idea, and no anounced plans yet. Supposedly the official con day ends at 6PM. We'll be twittering I'm sure, so keep an eye on that.

I don't do Twitter. Maybe I should message raemani my digits so someone could call me when you folks will be free

Well it is almost here!!! I am so looking forward to geeking out with some GWCer's.

I believe everyone has my number that is going, if not let me know.

I think we are all planning to meet somewhere for Brunch at 11 (place yet to be determined) and heading to the con about 12 noon.

Not sure what the plan is after that.

I'm planning on being at the convention when it opens. I'm sure that there are really expensive food vendors in the Javits center, where we can have brunch... ;)
