Anyone up for something this month? It may be a little late.

It's Official:
Saturday May 6th
Duke Gardens (Durham, NC)
12:00PM - 4:00PM (or so)

Directions:
http://www.hr.duke.edu/dukegardens/directions.htm

It looks like there is a possiblity for undesirable weather for the CCR gathering Saturday.
Edit: Weather looks worse for Sunday now, Saturday is down to 30% chance. Still not so great a day for nice garden scenery.
Edit: Weather forcast changed again to suggest it Durham will only be seeing 'small showers in the morning'. So the gathering will continue as planned Saturday, except starting a bit later than originally intended.

Also, anyone planning to arrive late may wish to look at the map on the website (http://www.hr.duke.edu/dukegardens/interactive_map.htm) incase they need to track us down and contact someone (like me) by cellular phone to ask where we are in the gardens.

not gathering related:

i'm also planning on some changes to make things more active in the local areas, since it seems the group is becoming more idle/dispersed :)

I'm up for a gathering at the end of the month, something pre-AZ would be fun. Maybe for the weekend of the 22nd or the 29th

How about trying a gathering on a Sunday instead of a Saturday?

I *might* be able to make it if it were on a Sunday. (Get outta Church around 12:00 and I've gotta be back there by 5:00 ) But I could always try

Knowing this group, probably somewhere in the Raliegh/Durham area. Sunday is cool with me also.

I am up for an gathering. Since I won't make it to AZ this year. Sunday is cool with me as well.

Now the question is...where Do we want to have the gathering at? I am fine with where ever it may be at. As long as, I can hitch an ride with someone. =)

22nd is bad for me (Dissension Pre-release in my own back yard), but I may be able to do the 29th.

Link Arroway
04-07-2006, 06:36 PM
it could be possible to do it may 6th at the latest (i wouldnt want to push it too close to AZ)
i'll get back to everyone on time and location once a place gets back up with me about reservation

Link Arroway
04-13-2006, 12:25 AM
Dealing with these reservations is like e-mailing Animazement staff :D Slow going. Anyways, I should know within the week as per the location, but for now I've pushed the gathering back to Saturday May 6th if that is alright with most of you.

If I have no luck with the reservations people the gathering location will revert to Duke Gardens.

Either location sounds great to me. And May 6th sounds good as well :P

Things aren't looking up for me at the moment, so weather I can go or not isn't certain anymore, but i'll try what I can, I'd love to meet up with some of you I havn't seen in a while.

Probably I will bring my newly finished Mahoro costume (If I can get a blue wig, anyway)

Since we're pressed for planning time, it'll just be at Duke Gardens again, too late to research a seperate location.
For the next gathering I'm hoping something a bit further south west.

Count me in if I can get off work for the morning/afternoon. Might have to leave around 3:00 or so if I can't get off for the whole day, but otherwise I should be there.

I think I can be there on May 6th. Are we coming in costume to Duke Gardens? And what are we doing while there?

I actually have a weather-friendly costume for once. My Ino Yamanaka costume came in today! :toothy:

Poo!! May 6th is free comic book day which means I have to work. Guess Ill make it to the next one. See everyone at Az!!

costumes are optional, and weather dependant. but duke gardens is an excellent place for photography in good weather! so its highly recommended.

as for activities, we will be wandering around the park as usual. and bringing snacks is also recommended but not required. In the past we've had a duke gardens picnic, but this is difficult if the weather looks bad (in such event it may have to be canceled) and hard to carry around the park where there isnt much in the way of trash cans, still smaller things snack things are awesome and people are encouraged to share, or at least bring some food so you won't go hungry... since our gathering intrudes on lunch time.

Star Angel: Free comic book day? Maybe we should change the gathering location :D

I'm probably not gonna go, bad weather implications+financial woes+two and 1/2 hour drive because the club is so dead centered around being in Raliegh/Durham are all convincing me to pass.

See ya at Animazement then.

Well there is always malls and such, but they don't make good gathering locations. If anyone planning on going would contact me, or give me a way to contact them directly (like by telephone, AIM actually doesn't work all that well when people don't sign on). I could make a last minute change to the plans easily, if only a few people intend to come, it could be moved to a suitable location. It seems ovbious that people do not check the board very often. So last minute changes are always tough.

At this point I'm not sure if anyone will actually show up, so no problem GreatSG.

As for the weather, the rain looks like its moved more towards sunday, but saturday still has a 30% chance of rain. looks like it might just be a wet day. and looks like the option of moving to sunday is out.

Although, this gathering doesnt seem like it has generated very much interest too. so it may be small for whoever decides to show up. could be one of those dark wet days or one day where its mostly sunny and have a few sprinkles. either way if you come out, i wouldn't wear something that can't take a little weather!

Right now I'm considering calling this off, so send me an IM or reply if you intend to come, and please remember to check this before you depart Saturday.

XD! I'm comming. I know that Eric/Toshi will be there and Katie (She came as Rosette to the last Duke Gardens meeting) Will probably be there as well. Link, I'll IM you with my phone # in case you need to make those last minute changes.

Still not sure if i'll go or not, if I do i'll probably wear my Lida outfit or something.

Link Arroway
05-04-2006, 06:57 PM
Well at least there are still a few of you interested.

While I was already considering moving it to a different location (due to weather)..
I also considered a smaller location, or a location that would be more friendly towards a small group (and not larger groups). Due to the fact that this looks like it'll have a smaller turnout than most gatherings.. Though, it still doesn't seem like I can find anything besides a mall.

So, we'll still be meeting at Duke Gardens, except at 12 instead of 11:20! Later than usual, but this'll give you more time to grab lunch (and more time for the weather to clear up).

Yeah... I'm not going... I just finished my last AP exam and plan on screwing around with no homework for a while with Sabi XD
Plus I'm broke, and need to save what I'd give for gas for AZ instead...

So, I'll just see you guys there.

By the way, Are we gonna have the group photo this year?

We will be doing a group photo, maybe not right after the C.c gathering though, last year that confused a lot of people. (Like me since I showed up late :))

Oh, I forgot to post sooner, but for anyone else who might be interested. The Cosplay story from the Herald Sun newspaper (Durham, Chapel Hill...) should be running on May 26th! That's the Friday of Animazement, don't forget to pick up a copy.

so... where are the scans you promised since you wouldn't sell it to me reasonably?

Link Arroway
06-03-2006, 05:05 PM
Uh, the article is on their website, so no need to scan. If you still want it scanned, you can be patient and I'll get to it within a week.

I do not see the reason to sell reasonably when I had to get up at 6AM to get it, but you could of gone out any time that morning (or later that day) and found a copy. It's my backup copy.
