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...
Tarantio
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...
WeeJ
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...
gerbilfromhell
well, not nething like EVERYONE getting together, but some of us live realitively close to eachother (e.g. me, craziness, superkathoid, kidvicious2punk, and some others) COULD meet someday........y'never know, it might work biggrin.gif
LoLo
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.
WeeJ
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...
leopold
Ahhhh... I tried ta do this once a coupla months ago. I even suggested movin it somewhere other than Manchester, but it never happened, sadly...

Mata is cool wi the idea, he even wanted to come to the Manchester one provided someone could find him some floor to kip on! laugh.gif
Sarah the Spider
Fly to Okla-damn-homa.

biggrin.gif

I'll put you up.

LoL...

hey i'd come and solve the ambiguous mystery.. ph34r.gif heheh...

but seriously me only problem is that i am in the US and Europe is def out when you're broke like meself...

we should get a europe meeting and a US meeting
Sarah the Spider
We should start a fund...lol...or a bake sale for expenses...

...Mittens Cookies and Little Goth Girl Cupcakes...MmMmMmMmMm...

wink.gif
sizzlieswix
hahaha...good idea...matazone bake sale/bake off

who can make the most creative food for a matazone character

brilliant
Sarah the Spider
I'd place my bets on the Mr. Snaffleburger Marshmallow Snacks.

They're conformably delicious...
sizzlieswix
HAHAHA!

conformably...hahaha! biggrin.gif that was great
NoName4444
Mmmm.... Marshmallows....

Now I just need some chocolate and gram crackers biggrin.gif
gerbilfromhell
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 )
sizzlieswix
i agree with that
Sarah the Spider
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?
gerbilfromhell
well, that might be a problem, but that's not the case neway so tongue.gif
NoName4444
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.

Meets always sound so cool.... I bet it would be a lot of fun and I'd love to go to one! But I know that chances of me getting to go to one is slim.... lol I don't think many of ya live in Texas... lol
Pikasyuu
I know LoLo, Cheez and I live around the same cluster of states, but there are so many brits and scots I'd want to meet as well!

This would be a helluva feat, folks.

Onlt one thing. I bet non of us here can cook.

I guess I was just thinking of a casual meeting of some sort...I don't think it would be feasable to get the whole forum to meet all in one go. I think the idea of little meets in differnet places is a groovy idea tho...

Guess it needs some more thought.
leopold
But... NC, NY an NJ are all relatively close, yeah? So there's one group in easy reach!

Crissi, there's at least two people who live in TX apart from you, an one in OK, an a couple in Kansas... so there's another...

An there's the CA, OR an Washington mob...

So that jus leaves us UK slackers to sort summat out here!! laugh.gif
WeeJ
Well...American people are bound to be more organised.
If everyone posts what city.closets city they live in (if they're comfortbale doing that) then maybe we could pick a place to meet.

Also, what would we do once we meet in the chosen place? I spoke to my Dad about this and he thinks we should go to the NEC. Not sure why...?

As far as the backed goods sale.. you dont have to know how to bake.. you have two or three standard recipies, and you follow those.. much like cooking from a box..

Yeah! Lets con...er..ask Oprah to help us! Okay, now all we need is one of us to come down with a fatal disease. Um...any takers for being infected with the ebola virus?
Phyllis
lol hmmm...

the closest city to me is boise, idaho.

and unless it was held there by some miracle, i'd never be able to make it..lol. there is one other person on here from oregon (espresso bean) that i've talked to...but she lives in portland...which is too far away from me sad.gif

so...yeah...everyone come to eastern oregon! you can see covered wagons...and uhm..yeah. wagon wheel marks from the oregon trail. ooo, we can tell oprah that our great great great grandpa DIED on the OR trail..and we all wanna re-visit his grave. (there are plenty of old, unmarked graves here.. wink.gif )

oh, the excitement. i can tell you all want to come here now! hehe. the slogan of a ghost town near me that just got phones a couple years ago is "desolation at its finest"......yeah that pretty much sums it up..lol.
