we're going this year! I kind of hope to watch the parade, but we're staying at the Hilton Fri-Mon so we may sleep in!

Nicely played! LOL!

We did a lunchtime meetup last year in the food court. It was kind of hairy getting tables and then everyone had to get their lunch. Have to think of venues nearby for lunch that might be a little easier or come up with a plan to secure a table.

Well we are less then a week away.....we should probably decide on at least a day and time for a meet-up. I know we talked about lunch timeish - so what day works best.

I haven't been able to find all of the track schedules online, so I don't even have a plan together yet - that is tomorrow's plan (at least to the best of my ability)....

Ideas?

Well, schedules are finally out... my calendar is very full.. lol...

Personally there ISN"T a good time for a meetup, but we can squeeze one in anyways... nights are bad due to parties, so i would def say Sat or Sunday for lunch. I'm speaking on a panel Saturday from 11:30-12:30 in the Marriot (L401-403), so after that i'm free till around 2pm (but i'll have R2 with me, so i can't go too far, but the food court or the sports bar would work)

Sunday, i'm probably just doing R2 stuff all day, so again, i can't go just too far from the marriot due to battery life and hills and street/sidewalk conditions.

I think Saturday at 12:30 sounds good, not that I have even looked at the schedule (I am so disorganized this year). But looking at 1 pm, there is nothing that looks pressing for me.

I will have limited access to here, or I think many of you have my phone number...if not let me know here or twitter and I will get it to you

I will try, but I can't promise - depends on signal strength...

But I will take lots of pics and share if not during the weekend shortly after.

I'll be there on Saturday and probably Sunday; I'll be hanging around the start of the parade route Saturday morning with the camera as usual.

Do we want to try to meetup at that same food court as last year? I remember the cell/wireless coverage there being really bad last year.

Getting a table and food was also a nightmare. I vote for maybe meeting at a central location and heading over to a restaurant on the street...might at least be easier to get a table.

Sounds good; I think the primary question is still "Where?"

Sorry things didn't work out. I only found uubergeek. Next year hopefully I will be a bit more organized and pick a time and spot sooner. It didn't help that the pocket program came out sooner.
