Winter Meet-Up Check In

Alright, now that Thanksgiving is over and I've cleared my email inbox of all the Livejournal spam that collected there I thought I'd do a little check-in.

The Dickens Christmas Festival in SLC has two Friday dates, the 7th and 14th. The event starts at 4pm and goes till 9. It sounds like Friday was the best day for most people; is that still OK? Meeting at 6 or 7 would give us plenty of time to walk around and still let latecomers meet up before closing.

There was some interest expressed in a Secret Santa gift exchange. I'd suggest the same guidelines for the last gift exchange ($10 value firm, wrap it pretty).

Hello! I don't know if you guys remember me, but I've posted once before and talked with you at the panel in October. (Black skirt without the petti, oho.)

My friend and I would LOVE to come, but we have finals during this week. Are you guys planning on a January meetup?

Hi! If you were the person who came up after the sewing panel then yes! Short hair, correct? :) If it was after a different panel then probably not - but that means I have the pleasure of meeting you! (again! for the first time!)

Yeah, picking a meetup that takes place during finals was my bad; I'm not in school anymore so I don't keep track of these things very much. It's too bad that the Christmas Festival only goes 8 days or so. Right now there's no plans for a January meetup but that can easily change. One meetup idea that was put forward was a swap meet. That'd be easy to plan during cold weather. And really, I'm all for having a casual meetup just to catch up with people over coffee or dinner. If you have suggestions or would like to plan a meetup, speak up! Since scheduling conflicts are always an issue, the more meetups we have the more chances people will have to attend. We're pretty laid back here so feel free to add your ideas. There's a master meetup idea post you can comment on.

I don't know what was before it, but it was the one where the panelist didn't show up and a girl in a Victorian Maiden dress filled in? Short-ish hair, haha.

Haha, that's alright. I'd love to come to pretty much anything, if it's in the Provo area! I live an hour away from SLC, which is why I haven't been able to come to anything thus far. ^_^ I'll be sure to check often and see if anything gets planned for next month! :D

I was at that same panel too!
I at least remember you :) but I didn't really do much talking; I can be shy if I'm around new people, and this was my first time around the Utah loli group so I was definitely in full shy mode.

Anyways, if the meet is on the 7th I might be able to make it :) But I can't do the 14th, I'm playing with an orchestra that night :(

I was thinking about pushing the date back to the 14th since there hasn't been much input about the date but it'd be a shame if you had to miss it! Soooo - I'm going to say it's on the 7th. I hope there will be others who can make it!

Well if the 14th works better for most people I'm okay with that. I don't know for sure if I'll be able to make it and I'd hate to cause problems for anyone else.

I didn't hear any particular feedback regarding whether the 7th or the 14th was better for people so I just picked. :) Any later in the month and I'm concerned about conflicts with regards to family holiday events.

I couldn't make it :( sorry.
I hope you had a good meetup though :) and I'll try to make the next one. :)

That'd be great; we look forward to meeting you. :)

I'd probably remember you if I saw you. :) I met a few new people there whose names I didn't catch.

Yes, hopefully you can make it to our meetups! The Provo Frontrunner line will be operational very soon so that may help you travel. It will also make Provot/Orem meetups easier to organize I bet. Do you know of any interesting things to do there?
