    I was thinking that next Saturday (November 7th) might be a good day for a meet-up. We'll start with lunch at Chipotle by the Florida Mall, then maybe cruise TRU and the mall. If anyone has a place nearby and an openness to semi-strangers, maybe we could journey there to watch TF:ROTF. Any takers?

    Dangit- I get one Saturday off, figuring that most of you people have 'real' jobs- the type your work 9-5 M-F. Oh well. Anybody else?

    I always have saturdays off, but the wife has friends from out of the country at our house this week. So there goes my weekend this weekend. However....I also always have fridays off. Anyone else good on fridays? Maybe we can just pick a better day for everyone.

    No "real" job for me either. Sorry. I'd like to show, but workin' in a power plant is "shifty". Ok that was bad.

    Would love to see you Tony (and others as well), but the wife & kids and I are headed to see the Rat on Saturday. Gotta use one more day on the passes or we lose it.

    A local meet would be cool , but most people will need more time to plan for meeting up. For me weekends are the only option but I would someone to watch the kid. Early December could work but a lot of people start having familiy things to do around the holidays.

    Maybe a poll can be added for what day most people think they can make?

    I would be game for the first Saturday in December. However I do agree that many may have a lot going on with the holidays so close. If that doesn't work out, I think we should all aim for Saturday January the 9th. Reason is, that way everyone can make arrangements to make it work.

    Post your thoughts guys.

    After the first of the year would be better for me, personally. My next two months are business travel, Thanksgiving, wife's bday, vacation, then holidays. Not a free weekend at the moment.

    I can do any Saturday, since there is no school, (hence, no need for Drivers). I'm in Interlachen, so I may need some help finding the meeting place, but if we all find a day that works, I'll be there.....

    Okay, my suggestion is we all meet somewhere in the Orlando area for lunch or something on Saturday January 9th. This way we all have time to make arrangements. And get off of work if needed (GogDog). What does everyone think about this???

    After the first of the year sounds great:thumbs2:  Maybe the "locals" can try to get a group together for Botcon in June.

    So everyone start thinking where we want to meet up at? And perhaps a good place where we can all hit lunch.
