MacResource Local Gatherings - OWC Spices Things Up!
Posted by: Stuffed Shirt
Date: March 29, 2006 04:33PM
Greetings, MacResource Members!

The MacResource Team would like to encourage people to get
together and attend the local gatherings! This is a great
way to meet the people you've been "typing to" for years,
and turn friendships in reality.

There are a lot of great people on MR, and to make your
gathering's even more interesting, the MacResource Forum is
going to help start things off right!

At each gathering, there will be a $25 iTunes Music Store
gift card to be given away by drawing!

Ah.... but there is one catch!

Cameras are required! We want to see the members who attend
in full smiles having a great time!

How, you ask?? Because afterwards, every MacResource member
can attend virtually, and be in on the "best of" your gathering via
the Web. Just leave it to us!

Let's build a real community - and get to know each other
from coast to coast and beyond!

Past gatherings have been great successes - as I'm sure
those who have participated will attest to.

So everyone - especially those of you in Southern California
who are contemplating the upcoming gathering
, join in on
the fun! We want to see you there - and let the MacResource
Forum add a little spice to the night with an iTunes gift
card to a lucky participant!

For those of you in other locales - start your planning! We
would like to see a gathering per month taking place across
the land - and I'm sure we can do it!

Take a look at the MacResource Frappr page [www.frappr.com].
You'll be surprised at just how close you might be to an event (or two!).
Don't hesitate to take the initiative and make one happen!

If you are not registered at Frappr, it's fast and easy! We
have over 700 members, and about 125 registered on Frappr.
You can show yourself, your Mac(s), your pets and your
family, and see where other members are relative to you.

Special thanks to OWC Larry for sponsoring the iTunes Music
Store gift cards
, and to every one who coordinates and
attends the affairs!



Coordinators of the meetings can arrange with me, via PM,
the specifics for images and the iTMS gift card.


Remember! The most important thing is to have a great time!

That's right Mike. Hey, we can just split it. I won't tell anyone, will you? We can take pictures at the mall and say they are all the Atlanta people like jimmypoo, who didn't show up last time. How old should the guy we get to play Poo be, maybe early eighties?

Local Gatherings - Southpoint?
Posted by: JoeBob
Date: March 29, 2006 08:57PM
Okay, I just added myself to the map thingy.
I know that there are more people in NC than just the 4 of us.
There was a previous meeting at the Southpoint Apple store, anyone like to try it again?
It is about an hour and a half from me, but is pretty central for the others that met before.

Ah...you know Limpy. It is somewhat unfortunate that limping is a fairly common sequelae of mountain climbing. A lot of climbers went off the tram before we found the picture...I mean before the accident happened.

Exactly. I miss Pat's. I haven't had a Pat's cheese steak in 3 years.

80 years old?

Hey, once my back heals, I will be again a youthful man of 65 @ 43.

Until then, I'd go for a 95 year old for realism.

In this case, would we technically separate "New England" from "Mid Atlantic" states for the gathering. If not, I'm up for one close to NYC.

Manhattan may be more centrally-located for those living in NJ and Long Islanders like yourself...

NY or NJ, pick a state





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

I see from the map that at least two of us live in Austin. I live in New Braunfels, TX, just 45 minutes or so south of there and would like to participate in a Hill Country gathering.

Pat's? I think you're about 100 yards too far south.

Damn it! I didn't say "nominate", I said "volunteer". If y'all don't revoke the nomination, I'm going to make the meetup on my family war infested street in Bushwick.
























No, really.

3d,

If you want, I'll volunteer to organize it. Give me a day or two to choose a day, time and location and we can take it from there. I figure we can all meet at a reasonably priced restaurant and, if after a fun-filled meal, take advantage of Manhattan and continue to hang elsewhere.

To make it easier, drop me a private message so I know who is interested in meeting in the city. It'll help me choose a restuarant as seating could be an issue. Once I have more details, I'll post them to this thread. For what it's worth, I'd make the meeting on a Saturday or Sunday, possibly around 12:45 or so. That way, we can scarf and still have time to roam afterwards.

Robert

If i was you, i'd just make it a casual thing at a bar. I'm POSITIVE, no matter how many times you confirm with people, there will be no-shows. And you'll be at a large table in a restaurant with 5 people. The hostess/manager will be giving you the evil eye all night.

How about a Thursday night after work? Many people will already be in Manhattan. Thursday night is generally a little bit slower than a Friday or Saturday at bars and restaurants. $2 drafts on Thursday! And it won't crimp people's Fri/Weeknd plans. Who makes plans for Thrusday besides us? LOL

McSorley's!
2 "light" and 2 "dark" for me.

Hey sscutcheon -

I just now saw your post about Houston. I've been so busy this week that today is the first time in awhile that I've checked in here. Anyway, I know there are others in Houston, so maybe we'll hear from them and we can go all out and do something big, or you and I can just do something as simple as Coffee Oasis. That way we'd get better odds for the iTunes gift card!

Actually, a bar isn't necessarily a good idea. It would prevent members who are below drinking age from joining us.

Please do not take offense to this,,, but if members below drinking age are coming. I will be graciously bowing out. Not that i was 100% going to come anyway... i'm just sayin'...

Will the restaurant serve meat? What about the vegans on the forum? heh

3d,

I don't take offense to it but the members who are not yet 21 but who are no longer children or teenagers may do so with good reason. If these people drive you away from what could be a fun afternoon/evening/etc, then so be it.

Not yet 21, but no longer a teenager?
That's a very precise demographic you got going there.

I don't know about you, but I prefer the company of adults in person.

A get together with minors under 21?
No thanks. Not my cup of tea.
