    ODN get together weekend???

    Just curious...

    If we had an ODN get together some weekend, in the middle of the USA like the Chicago area (O'Hare airprot)....and you had 9-12 months notice and arrangements were made for discounted hotel rooms, etc.

    Would you come?

    At some point we would pass a hat for donations to offset Apok's cost for the site of course...but what level of interest would there be?

    I don't know about a large gathering, but I could probably swing by your casa in the next couple of months if you're interested in meeting. I'll be working in Chicago until the end of Sept.

    Great I just moved...feel like helping me haul some stuff this weekend? I pay people in beer.

    Seriously though...check your PM.

    I was thinking maybe just having an afternoon of mingling, drinks, dinner and then people can do whatever they want with whomever they want....well not in a sexual sense ... necessarily. Maybe have some tongue in cheeks awards presented...

    You know like the first annual "Plato's".

    Maybe even have an interesting dress code for dinner?

    Maybe form some secret societies before the event and then have those groups have their own things if they want.

    Depends on when it is. I have family in Chicago so it's very doable for me. Gone be that Wednesday.

    In Heaven there is no beer. That's why we drink it here.

    haha tell me about it.

    Eliot, they will just need to take a video of it for us, then we can watch them all on Youtube.

    That sounds less expensive to me.

    Jamie.... It's a 4 hour drive from me and I'd be happy to "carpool" with you.

    And that's a yes. I could make it to Chicago with enough notice. And it would take a 9-12 month notice and a discount hotel room (that I would split with Jamie).

    Re: ODN get together weekend???

    Sorry guys, I've just started college, so I don't have the time. Even if you did coincidentally schedule it during one of my breaks, my parents would have to pay for it, and they think I spend too much time here as is. I can just imagine their reaction if I asked if I could go to an ODN convention lol. The only real way I could do it is if my family happened to schedule a trip to Chicago at the exact same time (since we do have family there) and then drop by while I'm there. But that would be an extremely long shot.

    That's exactly what I was banking on. Jamie come see her family and maybe me too.

    As of this thread I think ODN has stepped into a whole new realm of internet geekdom.

    Pffffffffffft. Geek my arse. I've been wanting to meet up with Erin for a bit. Too bad we didn't meet up when single, lol. A complete and total night to get smashed and do inappropriate things we won't remember in the morning.

    Yeah but generally the aim is to piece the night back together starting with the name of the person who's bed you're in.
