    The NC@TFW 2011 Meetup Thread
    As with 2009 and 2010, the new year brings a new thread!

    I'll edit this first post to reflect any decisions we all make (but please don't bump the old thread!).

    The link to our social group can be found here, if you haven't done so already:NC@TFW (North Carolina @ Transformers World 2005) - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards

    The following format is merely a guide on how the meet-ups have generally gone in the past. Things don't certainly have to stay the same format, and the group tends to be open to doing different stuff as well.

    * lunch around noon or so
    * Toy hunt at local Walmart(s) and Target(s)
    * Toy hunt at local shops that carry vintage TFs
    * Swap meet in parking lot


    Feel free to post any ideas, thoughts, whatever you feel like discussing about hanging out in North Carolina!

    Where will the next one be? Discuss away!

    I might be able to make Saturday depending on the time. Sunday I'm still unsure of.

    That sounds cool. An hour is PLENTY of time for me there. I think if you guys were eating lunch beforehand, I may just meet you at the show.

    we could also meet at the show at 3, do that for a bit, then check in with the flea market guy, then maybe a quick toy-hunt and early dinner

    This would be what I'd be doing after I'd meet you guys at the show. If you guys want to get lunch, by all means do ett! :) 

    I figured you guys would want to get supper at some point or something, and I didn't figure the toy show was the only thing you'd wanna do :D

    As per usual, I'm gonna be free. A toy fair sounds really fun... just gotta withhold the temptation to do some impulse buys. :lol

    So the plan is to just meet at the show at 3? Or do we want to meet up somewhere beforehand to make it easier to find each other and maybe get Allen some caffeine?

    Good luck, the one in Charlotte had absolutely nothing, save a few broken G1's. It has really turned into more of a card show than toy show here.

    The toy shows can be hit or miss often times. Basically for this thread, if I see something the group of us may be interested in, I just throw it out there even if I know I can't attend.

    Also, I encourage the rest of you to do the same. If you wanna do something, just post when, what, etc. :)

    There are a few of us hanging out at the Flea Market tomorrow morning (9am-ish). I figured someone would have posted it here, so sorry for the short notice (even though we have discussed it in the social group some).
