i saw mena's post on september's gatsby meet up, and thought it would be fun to meet up in our various locations across the world on the same day!
i'm up for organizing an NYC meet... anyone care to join, or start your own in your corner of the world?
yes girl i am TOTALLY on it! was thinking; saturday the 10th might be a more fitting day for the shindig. what with it being the tenth anniversary of 9-11 and all. a group of frolicking ladies done up in 20's garb might be a little out of place that sunday...
and also if we do it on the 10th, there's still a weekend day for those tat travel to get back home & relax before the week begins anew.
well, i just got some cool news but it TOTALLY wrecks gatsby for me.... ARGH!
ruggy & i are headed up to banff for work, from sept 4 through the 19th. we got the news the day after i was scoping out central park locations!
so. yay, but booooooo.
does anyone want to take over planning the NYC meetup? i'm happy to do a postponed picnic the weekend after we get back, but i think that may spoil the whole around-the-world picnic idea. totally up to y'all new-yorkers....
so far as i can tell from the replies, we've got:
if y'all want to do it later, i could organize on the 24th or 25th, but i totally understand if you want to keep it earlier!
no, he didn't, i didn't even know he's here at SW! does cathy join in the challenges?
i think newport is a great idea too... i guess let's see what peeps say?
haven't heard a peep, but he's probably busy gearing up for MP day :)
i'll start another thread to see what ny area folks think...
I don't think I can swing Newport on the 11th, and the gathering-if moved to the 10th- wouldn't have worked out for me anyway. :( I have a wedding in Philly that day (10th).
I'm likely unable to swing anything else for some time, with even more weddings and trips coming up. I'm booked until October, really. :(
I hope some folks can make it to meet up somewhere! If folks want to aim for the 11th somewhere in Philly, I could possibly set something up. Let me know!
