This is by no means a sure thing, just opening up the idea to see if there's any interest. I will be in Chicago in early July, roughly July 3-6. If there's enough interest in an official Twilight Heroes meetup, I might be into arranging (or co-arranging with a Chicago native) a gathering.

Big questions are:

1) Date? Sunday is the 4th, and I know a lot of people will have plans then. Many people may have Monday the 5th off for the holiday, but some few might miss out if they have to go back to work/school/whatever.

2) Location. Depends a lot on quantity of people. Top choices in my mind are either outdoors along the lake, or at a restaurant with a room big enough to host a large party.

3) Swag? Again depending on interest (and I may require a few pre-orders to know it's worth it), I could look into some TH gear, like T-shirts, keychains, bumper stickers, or the like. Coffee mugs might be an obvious choice, I suppose.

I'm definitely out. I have a budget problem at the moment and Summer classes this time.

Sign me up as a 95% definite. We have a work project that will be going pretty hot and heavy May-September, but I should be able to get away for a few days to get up to Chicago. It is my favorite city to visit, after all.

Well now you know you'll have to have it.

I'll be there for sure :D

Alas, that's far away from me, and the budget is tight.

Hope y'all have fun though!

So far away from me
So far I just can't see

Unless I can find some conference in Chicago in July... very low chance.

A TH meet would be kind of incredible. Unfortunately, those dates and that location is no good for me. Feel like coming to Philly?

Clearly it should be in Pensacola, Florida instead.

Unfortunately location isn't up to me. There's a wedding the following weekend, and I don't have any control over the location. If this first one goes well, I'll try to have other meetups when (if) I end up other places, but I don't get out of my neck of the woods all that often.

It's a (very) remote possibility for me.

It's gone from a very remote possibility to now a remote possibility for me :D

Sorry, I won't be able to make it. I checked, and I'm going to be slammed with work this summer.

I would love to come, but I'm guessing this is mainly for you old school THers, and I'm fairly new.
Take pics though!

I'm pretty sure you're invited if you've played TH and liked it.

Play TH? Yeppers. Like it? Naw, can't sink so low as to merely like it; I love it!
I honestly don't have the finances or transportation anyways, but really would like to be there.
Oh well, maybe the next one?

Sorry to bring this up so close to the deadline, but upon reviewing the list there were two yesses, one remote possibility, and about eight calls for cities in different parts of the country. That's not very promising as a group meet-up. Not sure what to do, but family and tourism may take precedent over fanfare and T-shirts. K3v, Harry, I guess I'll take this offline and see if you're still going to be around.

Gah, that's too bad, would've been fun. Maybe we could try another one once retcon comes out if it pulls the playerbase numbers up, though you probably wouldn't be in Chicago so it'd be harder for me to come. One day though, I'll finally be able to ask you how's life in person :p

R/L sux big bananas from Bangkok to Bangor, Maine and back.
I say this only 'cause for the past 15ish years, I've been held back by TOO many things to list, but can mention the list includes finances, lack of support, major memory issues, lack of transportation, among others...
**sigh**
...I would LOVE to go to (have gone to, be going to) retcon or comic-Con, a renascence fair or even a **bleepity-bleep** movie for crying out loud!
**wink**
My day WILL come (I hope); Thus says this dawg!

:wink: 8) :shock: 8) :wink:

So um.
When we finally do one.
We're calling it RetCON.
Right?
