    This was brought up in another thread, so i figured we should make one just for this...

    The idea has been brought up alot but i think there has only been 1 (maybe i'm wrong)

    But let's try to get one together before the holidays...any one have any suggestions as to when/where?

    I'm in! I missed the last one because of a broke leg. I'd have it here if I had more room... but my house has about a 5 person limit.

    There was only one.

    I think 2 or 3 NYC guys showed up too (NinoBrown and JoeNerve).

    I'd love to see another, and I'd really try to attend again, but I'm way to busy to organize or host it.

    Finally, there will be a second one!! I was going to get up to the first one, but couldn't because of scheduling, and a second one never materialized. Last time it was organized by Mr. Fortune Cookie IIRC. I dunno if he would be interested in doing it again, I haven't seen any posts of his in some time, I don't even know if he is still active.

    I'm in!

    Blux, you also have mail.

    Ok, basically what he told me is that there are churches that would probably rent out for a night at around $100.

    1st Question: Does anyone know of any churches that this might be possible with?

    He also advised me for someone to be "in charge" of all the money, so everyone would mail their part to that person (money for food, drinks, etc.)

    2nd Question: Who should that be?


    He is going to send me a list of about 50 people who want to be notified if another G2G is scheduled, so i'm sure they can help too. Let's start calling churches and finding out things!

    I have one in mind that could probably do it. Unike I origionally thought, I don't know if we are gonna be able to do this before the holidays.

    So let's everyone get this thing moving now!

    I emailed a church near me, I am still awaiting a response.

    Blux emailed me a list of people who would like to be notified, I will contact those people too.
     
  20. I'm busy just about every weekend until Christmas. It sounds like a few others are in the same boat. Perhaps after the first of the year?

    Clay, I got your PM, thanks. I'll reply later.
