Default North America Meet Up? (idea farming)

In case you failed geography, North America is really big. But I was thinking that maybe we could arrange a few meet ups around the country.

I'll toss some ideas out:
  • If we hold it at a convention, we could possibly swing some sort of event too. Ged, Topbanana & I did one a few years back at Historicon in Lancaster, PA. It went alright. I think with a little planning we could do it with a bit more flair.
  • Most conventions have ample gaming space. So pick up games would still be an option.
  • Conventions normally happen around urban centers. That means that hotels are decent but there are alternatives (like camping) which are typically within a decent distance. For example, I live ~30 minutes from Origins and there are a few good campgrounds nearby.

Okay, so Ohio and nearby states. Origins 2010 is my plan. It's a little out there, I know, but it's my most likely bet for gaming. While I can't really host people at my house (lease restrictions, I'm afraid) but I have camping gear and I can help to provide food and transportation from Delaware, OH to the convention.. I'm pretty decent on doing things on a shoestring, so I can help with planning that stuff.

Anyway, I know this is a long shot, but it never hurts to ask.

Well, in the future a meet up would sound like a great idea. Right now the two biggest obstacles are transportation and distance.

I live in NC and thus pretty far from everything. Also I don't have much in the way of transportation, but should soon be remedying that situation. Maybe not this year, but in a few would be wonderful.

Also, camping is wonderful.

It's a good idea.

More then likely it will probably lead to several small meet-up becasue of the size of both Country and the distance/transportation issue.

But I could see something been done in the East, something Center, Something West and something down South. Or as Emlyn said a get-together during a convention.

I think meeting in East/West/Center/South is probably a good idea, as few of us would be interested in a several hundred dollar plane ticket before anything else.

That said, a convention could be a good idea. Only problem would be when/where is it as well as price for convention/finding people. I also think it would have to be a lot father out than the TO meetup was, we'll need more time for planning, figuring out accomadations, etc especially if it is during a convention.

All negatives aside, it would to meet people. It's really cool to meet TO members, as 2/3 of my gaming group actually connected with the rest of us through TO.

Would it be possible for TO to have a table at gamesday 2010... i know that i am going to gamesday toronto myself next years and it would be a much easier way to meet since food and such is already there. somebody could build an awesome table or bring one that they have already made.

Well, there's a couple of us (myself and Thor DOH) up here in the Northeast (Maine) I think a meet-up would be great. We'd just have to make sure that we have plenty of warning though, in order to really make it work (I for instance, would want to get Leave).

If anyone wants to come up with a place/ time for a Northeast meeting... I'd be down.

And I'm Ottawa. So Maine, Massachusset and New York ain't too far.

Worse case maybe something for Eastern Canada.
