Philadelphia (39)

If we can gather enough people near Philadelphia, perhaps we can get something started here - who here is near Philadelphia?

Also, if we were to meet any time, what would be a good location/day for the meeting?

I live in Philedelphia area. I live in Lansdowne and I know workers at librays that would gladely host these events and help SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL THING. This would be an amazing event to actually start.
I would think Wensdays; maybe around 6:00. If anyone lives in the Lansdowne area PLEASE post so I will be able to help start meetings as soon as possible.

I live right outside of Philadelphia,in West Chester.

Wednesdays at six is a good idea but not the most convenient. My opinion is that a Saturday would be a much better day because that's usually when most people have off work or school. If this event does happen on Saturdays, then it should start somewhere between 1:00pm and 3:00pm.

I live outside Penns. in New Jersey. I agree that hosting the events would be better on Saturdays. The times work too, for the same reasons and that there won't be as much traffic trying to get to the meeting place.

I think that it would be good to meet somewhere on January 8th or any other saturday after that, because during the week day would be hard because of school...

I live in south jersey about 15 minutes from philly but the weekend of the 8th i'll be up in north jersey. i can definitely do the 15th at any time.

Weekends are the best days for me.(Since im starting college pretty soon) So Saturdays sound pretty heavenly lol

does any live near hoquiam

10 Name: Anaca : 2011-01-06 16:01 ID:3B+ZS8CI

I live right on the border between Delaware and Pennsylvania. Meeting near West Chester would be great for me, and I am in school, so Saturdays would be great.

I have to do a project on the 8th, so the 15th would be better, personally.

11 Name: liatris-chan : 2011-01-06 21:19 ID:Eg9rzKh6

As I said before, I live in West Chester so near there would be great for me but I can easily get to other places like Philadelphia. I think I'm going to be in either Baltimore or D.C. I actually have plans on the 8th (I'm very good at forgetting about these things) So the 15th,aka the Saturday after this weekend, works a lot better for me.

Have any of you noticed that the 8th is in two days?? I think it'll be best for everyone if we wait until the 15th so everyone has time to prepare (like for the younger people that need to get a ride, or for people that have to rearrange their schedule) Plus, we haven't even decided on a time yet have we? And even if we come up with a time tomorrow, a lot of people probably won't get the message in time. The 8th is just no longer practical.

I say our choices should now be either the 15th or the 22nd so we have plenty of time to think of a good time

12 Name: liatris-chan : 2011-01-13 16:57 ID:Eg9rzKh6

Okay, well, If you guys decide to have the meeting this Saturday, I'm not going to be able to make it........I can't wait until I'm old enough to get my drivers license!!!!

Well, since a location hasn't even been picked yet, perhaps it would be best to delay a meeting to another weekend.

14 Name: Liatris-chan : 2011-01-15 23:32 ID:ZDUldFdZ

I don't see this thing EVER being able to happen if we don't pick a location and a time before we pick a specific date. Someone mentioned having ties with a library and being able to set something up there? Or if any one else has any ideas please share them. As for the time, in my opinion, it should start somewhere around 1:00 or 1:30pm and go on for maybe an hour and a half or two hours. Possibly longer.

AFTER we have the place, start and end time, what we should bring, and everything else that needs to be figured out, we can work on the specific date we want it, otherwise nothing will ever get done.

um........sorry for the triple post there. I'm not sure exacty how I did that but I'm sorry.

Hello! I was very recently approached by this, and I'm picking that we meet at the Free Library of Philadelphia. At, let's say 1:30?

I agree with saturdays, yet I myself am not available until March 5th. What say you about that? I could be going about this entirely wrong as well, so if I sound like a moron, do please tell me.

I'm new on this thread, but March 5th at 1:30 sounds good to me.

21 Name: Kaito X Len - Banana Split : 2011-02-24 06:07 ID:6fJX9VDv

Hi! I want to go to an anime con or a club where you could draw. Does anyone know of anyplace good?

22 Name: Anonymous : 2011-02-24 14:20 ID:GoHaXYci

March 5th at 1:30 sounds good

23 Name: liatris : 2011-02-24 17:33 ID:Eg9rzKh6

I think March 5th at 1:30 is perfect....unless you meant 1:30 AM in which case I can not attend, lol.

24 Name: Chibisensei : 2011-02-24 18:22 ID:YTS7gJtc

I live 70 mi from Philly so depending on bus scheduling and parental permission maybe I could make it

26 Name: >l< : 2011-02-25 20:42 ID:4Oc6xyVh

For me parental permission, and transportation is a must! Blah... I might be able to go. I hope I don't sound like a creeper :P But how old is everyone here? Personally I'm like 17.

27 Name: PandaChanTheFirst : 2011-02-27 17:17 ID:w/h1wfAy

March 5th at l:30 sounds pretty good, I should be able to make it unless Track and Field decides to be on that day... EVEN US 13 YEAR OLDS MUST HAVE STUFF TO DO!

28 Name: liatris : 2011-02-28 17:26 ID:Eg9rzKh6

I actually might not be able to come and the reasoning you'll find to be a bit ironic. My 14th birthday is this friday (march 4th) and my family's throwing me a little party for me on saturday (march 5th) and they're not letting me miss it for the world and they refuse to just have it on sunday.........I'm being forced to go to my own party XD Isn't it horrible!! But maybe I can go but only for a little while....idk :(

29 Name: HikariNeko : 2011-03-03 16:38 ID:xqvqRJlN

I wish I could go. I'm close to Phili, but close enough, being a Jersey girl.

Well, then, it seems like it is too early to say that there are enough people to get this one started right now - perhaps we might have to wait a while before having another meeting.

33 Name: Liatris : 2011-03-10 20:39 ID:Eg9rzKh6

Seems so. I say we start planning a meeting for possibly next month, or month after. That way we have plenty of time to organize it, figure out the where and when, and spread the word. If we just keep planning for one or two weeks ahead, we aren't going to get anywhere.

34 Name: Liatris : 2011-03-16 09:28 ID:Eg9rzKh6

Seriously guys. We have to stop going days at a time without anyone posting here. If you're serious about having this meeting, and if you really want it to happen, then get a move on and start planning it out because so far, we haven't gotten that far!!

We have a time that we want it, we have a possible location for it, that's it. We need a solid date and to confirm where the location is. We also need to get the word out and make sure everyone who wants to go, knows about it. So lets get started!

35 Name: Mayflower : 2011-04-05 20:54 ID:TrYp6sTy

Goodness, this is a bit of a mess. Well, hi, everyone! I'm a writer and FFN beta-reader who lives in the Philadelphia area - I'm...kind of supposed to be helping keep an eye on this board, but being busy with school, I haven't been able to.

That being said, (and not being able to tell if something actually happened in the winter while I was gone), I'd love to see a(nother) meeting set up. Are there any days in May that look particularly good? :D (Anything in April may not be giving people enough time to plan.)

I agree that Saturdays or Sundays would be the best days (my Saturdays are usually filled, so if Sunday afternoons work for other people, that'd be awesome. :D), and definitely in the early-mid afternoon. (Writing over lunch? Hmm. :) )

If enough people are still around and want to make this happen, I can look into locations (though other people can jump in, too) - though I agree that the Free Library would be an easy choice. I don't know what to say about transportation and parentals, however - I don't drive, or I'd love to run around and pick everyone up. XD Trains and subways, maybe? If I have the money, I could probably ride to Trenton and meet anybody in the New Jersey area who would want to come and help them find where they're going. If your parents have issue with you going out, though, that's their jurisdiction. I'd offer to let them talk to me, but I'm just a college girl, so that's not exactly super-reliable.

Alright, so let's see if we can bring this thing to life! <3

36 Name: Liatris : 2011-07-29 14:29 ID:ayhYmI6u

Wow. I abandoned this thread MONTHS ago when I realized no one was really taking this seriously and as if just to prove me right, there has been exactly one post in the past five months now. Just wow.
