Arrow NJ Area Pre-Con Get-Together/At Con Singles Lunch Break. Ideas, People!!

Ok, as promised, I started a new thread on this so we can get to the drawing board. We need a committee! XD

First things first: Do we want to make both happen? ::coughYEScough:: For either or, we need Time/Place. Very Important. July is obvious month.
Ok, get cracking, guys.

yes! both!

ok for at con thing: i vote saturday as the best day to plan things since i'd say anyone who's going will most likely be there that day if any of them. now i don't know what big events people are involved in that day and stuff, so maybe we should keep an updated list of those on this first page of posts? then we can find a time that works for everyone to get together and have a lunch/party/thingy

out of con thing: i already posted my availability, but i'll do so again for anyone just checking out this thread. if we're keeping it to July, no problems here for any time! just need a couple weeks notice i think the best idea for that would be to get together maybe at someone's house if anyone was willing to do that? i only say so b/c i think this isn't too large a gropu of people, and mall or other public place might not be as conducive to getting to know each other ^_^ Tell me of any other ideas! Also, i think there are enough picnics going around to last a lifetime, so maybe stay away from those :-p

Con Thing: Hmm. Saturday and your reasoning sound pretty good to me. If we all agree with Sat, we can start making a list of what food/snacks everyone can bring. The time can always wait til later once a rough schedual of events is made up so we know what time major things to avoid are taking place.

Pre-Con Thing: The only problem I see with going to someone's house is mostly for the younger people, and myself. My mother would have a major fit about me going to the house of someone that I met *online*. Unless of course I tell her that it was someone I met at an earlier con, which would work, but she'd still be iffy on it. I think that's why a public place might be better, but if all else fails, i'm sure she'd let me go.

Heh...I'll be at Japanese camp until then...^_^;; Oooh and then RealmRPGer can come too (he's visting after camp) heh...he's moving to NJ soon....so I guess he's one of the gang, right?

well there are quite a few parks near my area, deer path park probably being the nicest. there's also a pretty nice mall and asian supermarket near me.
of course we will all want it kind of near to us, maybe we could find a kinda center point that would make it easy for EVERYONE to get to.. also, carpools will help a lot, I have a car at home, and can fit 4 comfortably, 5 if it has to. maybe have a central meeting point, then me and another driver *if needed* can take everyone to the park/mall? just throwing ideas out here people, lemme know how it all sounds! ^^

How about Rockaway or Willowbrook?

Would anyone want this pre-con get-together be the "NJ mall get-together" then perhaps?

Well, we need the northern most and southern most people to tell us where they're located, so we can find a central point (but not just some random place BECAUSE it's central. An area near somebod will be nice...) . I live in central jersey, so anything's pretty much good for me. XD

count me in. I'm up Passaic County, about 20 minutes from the city (NYC, what else?) so I'm not too sure where everything else is in relation to where I'm at. If there's simple driving directions or a bus that stops there (I'm sure there's buses!) that'd be spiffy. although I'm totally at a loss for location...

Okay....I'm not from Jersey

But some advice for those planning something.

If you want to plan something at a convention on a Saturday, be forewarned that Saturdays are usually Cosplayer's busiest day, as the most gatherings, and photoshoots, and the Masquerade/Cosplay Contest. So if you're going to have a gathering keep those in mind.
