I know there's a large number of people here that are from the States but I was wondering if it would ever be possibe to arrange some sort of Matazone people get together? Maybe in the Midlands or some place like that (being easily accesable or course)
Get to meet the people behind the posts IRL.

Was just a thought...

its all such a nice idea and all, but not too feasable... it requires effort from everyone who wants to go and meet folks and someone in particular to organise the details of where we're gonna meet. ive done this before on another forum, and we've still not got round to meeting each other yet...

but, if yer all serious about doing this, ill give a hand in organisation. hell, i may be meeting the infamous d-man pretty soon! oh and i already knew prez...

I think we'd have to see hom much interest they'de be first. No point to it if its just me and you lol (although I'm sure you're a lovely person to meet biggrin.gif )
If anyone has any suggestions as to how we could do this or if anyone actually [/B]wants[B] to do this, then scream really loud and make yourself heard.

I think we should also probably ask Mata if he's ok with it too...

Good luck getting that together.

I personally am sceptical about a meet happening.. People talk about them and they never seem to truly happen. Simply getting the people together who have the same week or weekend off is hard. Then of course if someone say from the states wanted to go they'd have to be able to afford the plane tickets and all that jazz.

I can't go and I'll probably never get to meet anyone unless they come to Northern Cali someday and we arrange a time and meet up place.

Anyways goodluck.

Well, I live in Tamworth which is about 20 miles outside Birmingham.

Anyone close by? I was thinking if we could all meet up, it'd be a big town like maybe Birmingham.. Maybe not London as its so expensive there.

Plus, what would we all do when we meet? Go bowling or something? Gimmee some idea's. I've never had to think of arranging something of this scale before...

LMAO biggrin.gif laugh.gif
i think we need more area-sensitive meetings than just 'USA' and 'Europe' ones (considering that the usa and europe are kinda big). maybe like a 'uk' one and one for the four regions of the usa (northeastern, northwestern, southeaster, and southwestern) cause it's unlikely that many ppl from cali are gonna fly all the way to ny for the get-together (unless you're serious about the money-raising thing biggrin.gif )

Well if the majority of people live in one region, don't you think it would be a bit odd to have a main get-together and then a couple small semi get-togethers?

Awww, it sure has been awhile. Forgot what it was like, replying to a thread and when you post that reply, find that 2 other people have replied before you smile.gif.

Hmm... Ravein and I can have a get together. Course we live like 15 mins away from each other. Anyone else live around North Carolina?

actually that is not to bad of a idea. If you where to make a website dedicated to selling a certain type of non-perishable food. Everyone who wants to meet signs up. When the orders come in they are dispersed to the member closest to the person placing the order (to save us on shipping, of course we will charge the customer a flat rate 5% high than the shipping cost wink.gif ). That member will process the order, mail out the baked goods then pocket the cash for there trip over. Once everyone has the correct amount of cash we can close the site, or you can continue to run it for profit. Honestly all you would need is a good recipe that would keep fresh for 2-4 days, and a couple of hours a night/week.
