I'll have more information on this soon, but in the meantime I wanted to let everyone know that Audra and I will be in NYC Saturday, June 19th, 2010. We'd love to meet up with those of you who can make it that evening.

I'll update here when we have more specific time and date information, but if you're interested in hanging out for the evening, mark the date. :)

Hmmm going to make for a long weekend, I have friends who will be in southern Jersey then....maybe I can convince them to all come to NYC that weekend. That is how it always goes - nothing going on for a couple weeks, then several weekends in a row where I have lots to do.

Maybe I will remember to copy the pics from the meet-up and bring you a copy...

I will post on FB for those that don't come here often (Steviespin, Tanu and Yorrick)

Pittsfield.

My sister lives in Pittsfield!

Unfortunately, I have to work that day. Had I known two weeks ago, I might have been able to put in for that day off, but I'm also leaving for the Origins Game Fair two days after that, so I would have been at the bottom of the list for getting another Saturday off. As it is, I'm trying to get July the 3rd off, and that is a bad day to ask off in retail.

You all have fun and raise a glass to those of us that can't make it.

I will be there, and last I heard Steviespin was planning on being there.

I know Tanu is not available and haven't heard from Tony (Yorrick).

I had posted on FB since I am likely to catch them on there then here.

Well I can definitely make it, as I live in NYC. Just hope I can finish my shooting in time to meet you two - I have a few things to discuss about Kubrick's 2001 ;)

I'd rather not say publicly, but close enough to hop on the T and get to Park Street in half an hour provided everything's running on schedule.


Pittsfield.

Well, I guess that's *technically* part of Massachusetts ;-)

We're relatively close by. I'm near the Mass Ave stop. Actually, I guess I'm near everything in the area. d:

Lol. I was gonna leave that alone even though I had a similar thought. d:

This is definitely on! We're working out the specific location to post this week, but it'll be in the city and easily accessible for the group.

Seriously, seriously looking forward to it. :)

The Spain over on West 13th between 6th and 7th ave is where I speak. Free Tapas with drinks and dinner if so inclined - best Spanish food (Valencian and Catalan) in NYC, and absolutely the best Sangria. I eat there all the time as it reminds me of mom's home cooking :) The only thing is that they only take cash.

OK, figured I would volunteer to help coordinate the meet-up.

I know we are all planning on meeting somewhere around 5 pm. I maybe in the city earlier, but not sure yet.

For those of you that don't have my number PM and I will send it to you so you can contact us if you need to.

Trust me you won't miss Chuck he looks like a skinner version of his avatar.

So far I know Default, Steviespin, photonutz and possible fenatic? Anyone else?

Sweet - looks like a good mix of those that have met and those that haven't....which is always fun getting to know new people.

At least I don't think we have met, have we?

My name IRL is Kristin, but I answer to Rae or Raemani as well.

My name in IRL is Michael if you couldn't tell from Twitter handle.

I am the only girl in the pic and Stevespin is the blond to the left of me.

I have to find recent pics of Chuck and Audra, and I am fighting with Flikr to get pics from this year's meet-up that include Default

And since I can't find one with just the people I want:

OK - so I texted with Chuck - and have details, or at least where and when.

We are all planning to meet at 5 pm in the Hilton Hotel Bar at 53rd and 6th. I am sure we will wander from there so if you plan to join us and haven't told me let me know and we will wait for you, or of course I can always text/tweet any change of plans. So if you don't have my number PM me here or DM me on twitter and we will go from there.

I may be in the city sooner, but not sure what time, it really depends on what time I get up and what train I end up on.

See you all tomorrow.

For anyone planning on taking the subway, there is a lot track work going on in that area. Specifically the E line which was how I was planning on going from Penn. Station is not running in some areas.

I just looked on a map and it's like...p. damn close to Penn, dunno if a subway is the better option

My plan is to take the 1 to Columbus Circle, then take the B or D to the 7th Avenue stop. From there its only a one block walk to the Hilton. Keep in mind its going to be about 80 degrees out.

Great picture! Can't wait to see the rest!

GWC has a group on Flickr if you want to upload your pics there, then you only have to upload them once and repost the link.

I didn't notice at that time, but now that I think about where we were when we took that pic it makes sense - there is a Hershey's/IronMan2 promotion going on.

Pretty funny though.

Well I did have an almost 2 hour train ride before I had to be functional :p

Actually I wasn't even buzzed, but a few more and it may have been all over but the crying.

Luckily I got the express 3 train to Penn, and made the 11:57 train by about 5 min - so I didn't even have to wait in Penn for long.
