    I've found that you will get a far better response if you just pick a date and make sure its in the thread title.

    use this thread to pick 2 or 3 dates and see which is the most popular then start a new thread with that date in the title

    Send me the air-ticket and I'll be there in a blink!!
    NYC is totally fascinating.
    It's only disadvantage is that it is just "a tad" out of my immediate reach...

    I would definitely be game for a meet up in NYC. The issue is that I work almost all weekends (my days off are monday and tuesday). If all is quiet at work, I "might" just *cough cough* be sick enough to make it to NYC. A commitment is pretty tough.



    Funny.. I see lots of meet ups all over the world. Even remember a bunch of TPF members flying into NYC for a meet up. But getting the locals to meet up is tough... Perhaps we all work too much.

    this thread is about 6 weeks old and still no date. JUST PICK ONE and if no one can make it then pick another. Trust me it works

    Yes. The "secret" of organising meet-ups is that you must set a fixed date. And be boldly presenting it. A reasonable amount of time ahead. Then everyone can check their calendars and bank books and say either yes or no. You must come up with an OFFER, like any travel agency does with holiday trips they want to sell. And those who want to and can accept your offer will do, and those who don't want to or cannot accept it won't.

    A weekend meet-up need not be announced 1 1/2 years in advance.
    But I had the dates for the Germany Meet-Up of May last year out and to be known by everyone 19 months before! That then attracted people over from the States, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Saudi-Arabia... They all had time to put it onto their radar, not forget about it when they did their plannings, save up some and all.

    That's also why the next big international Meet-Up in Newfoundland is being "advertised" already! So we here, for example, already know how to do our next summer's holiday planning! It will be a trip to Newfoundland!
