>If you get a sense of deja-vu all over again when you read the following, it’s because much of the following is posted over at Ancrene Wiseass.
Ancrene Wiseass and I are beginning to plan the First Annual Kalamazoo Bloggers’ Guild Meeting (AW’s name — I promise not to make you pay half of your money to fund a Corpus Christi play). But we’re running into some logistic difficulties and would like your input on several matters. To wit:
1. If you’re thinking of coming, please let us know in the comments thread below. If you’re thinking of bringing a friend, colleague, significant other, familiar, or minion, please let us know that as well. We’d like to get a sense of how large the gathering will be.
2. We’ve been told that it would be best to meet early in the conference so’s we can keep meeting and greeting over the weekend. This means we should probably aim to converge on either Thursday or Friday evening. Which night would you prefer, and what time frame would be best?
3. The location of our guild-hall has yet to be determined, and we’d very much appreciate your suggestions. The shelter in the park near the pond is one possibility, but we’d have to cross our fingers and hope for good weather. Any other nominations?
Also, New Kid suggested in the comments at AW’s place that we e-mail photos to each other beforehand once we know who all is coming. Duh! Why didn’t I think of that? She also suggested meeting in either Bernhard (the conference center/computer center/food court place — did I get the name right?) or the Valley lobby that’s farthest away from registration, the book exhibit, and the cafeteria — which would be the lobby in the back of the one farthest up the hill. (Wiseass, btw, hasn’t yet been to K’zoo, but I have; so I’m more likely to know what you’re talking about if you say “the business building where the movies are” or “that dive bar near campus with the leather and wood decor” or something like that.) What say ye?
