Thumbs down

Just doing a rough count on the Past Meet-Ups forum and it looks as if there has been around 10 different meet-ups this year (2005), involving two or more Tpunkers!


Dayyyymmmm.....Awesome job, guys and girls!


I would like to thank all of you who have intiated and/or participated in these meetups and made it happen, in the USA, Canada, France, UK, and Spain (am I missing something?).


A special thanks to Anthon (KCL) and Beth(Scarlotte) for hosting many of these, because wherever they went, a meetup was...BOOM....DONE .


Where the heck is OZ/NZ? C'mon guys! You guys need to step it up and represent! I know we have a few members there or traveling to OZ/NZ, so get busy and - do it! You won't regret it!


Still 3 months left and more meetups can still happen !

I can't wait until I can attend my next meetup! It was great meeting everyone in Madison, WI and I was so glad to get to be a part of it.

I have to admit I'm very excited for this Toronto meetup... the last two have been myself and CD (who I wish could be there this time) and we also had Chibiminako once.. (which was awesome) it'll be great to have more people there and meet the whole Southern Ontario Crew!

I think Oz/NZ will have its due at year's end... I'll be there in November, U2fan in December, and several other TPunks going in the Nov-Jan timeframe. If a meetup or two don't transpire down under, I'll eat my hat.

(note: I never wear a hat, so, umm, it's just an expression or something..)

How about the hat that's been permanently glued to Larry the Cable Guy's head for the past 17 years with all the accompanying scalp funk and built-up sweat? 'Cause you know he hasn't washed it.
