I think this might work. Since I will be picking most of you up.....look for who is with me? laugh.gif I was thinking about making a shirt that says LOLO on it really big, cause who else is going to know what LoLo meens? Well other than hawaiians thinking I'm calling myself stupid or Phillipenos thinking I'm calling myself grandfather. laugh.gif

Pixies t-shirt.

Hey, it worked at the UK one. tongue.gif

Probably just a black shirt with a large piece of construction paper on it that reads:

"Hello. I am syuu. By the way, this is a Pixies t-shirt and Dayan's is really BoC"

Okay...back on subject.

How are we all going to recognize one another? I mean, a lot of us have photos in the family album, but should we all wear Matazone t-shirts as well? I'm thinking we should, anyway.

I'll wear one. You're buying right? I'd like a little goth girl this is my world one. long sleeve, XL. Thank you soo much

i don't think many tall red heads are walking around... so i should be easily recongize biggrin.gif

I don't own a Matazone t-shirt. *ashamed* I've been trying to donate, but there's no money. xX;

I am fairly easy to recognize as the 5'0 girl with a lipring and green eyes. How's that?

Okay, I was thinking about this while in the hospital, and I'm definitely not going to be able to make any meets anytime soon with my hospital bills and such. Sorry guys. sad.gif If I could find a way around it, I would...but it's just not highly likely now.

Gahhh...I hate to sound all self-pitying. dry.gif But, I figured I should let you all know now that there's really no forseeable way that I'll be there, unless I win the lottery or something. All of my money now has to go into my medical expenses..so no west or east coast meets for me. But you all have to have lots of fun and drink a few drinks for me (those of you who are legal, anyway) since if I was there, I couldn't do so myself anyhow..lol. smile.gif
acidteardrop
im sorry cand. well miss you there. hope it all works out well.
Pikasyuu
I also may have to skip out on the meet now for personal reasons.

Sorry guys.
Phyllis
Ooookay. I might be going after all!

Gosh, I'm so off and on with this thing.

But well, my hubby wants to drive down there. He says he wants to go somewhere other than Boise and just have a vacation. Plus he thinks we can afford it. So, I'd definitely be bringing him along.

I think we need to do an updated list of who is coming and who is rooming with who.

If it's just hubby and I, then we'll most likely room with Lo and SPS, I think (Jaq can't make it cause she has a class that she wants/needs to take at that time). But we might bring a couple friends of ours who live in Boise so it won't be just one person who has to drive the whole 9 hours (I can't drive, so I can't help with that). We haven't even asked them yet, but if they do come we'll probably room with them.

If they do come, it'd give hubby someone to hang out with while I'm off talking about inside jokes that he won't understand and such (although he does know about some....lightsabers...woooooom), so he won't feel completely out of the loop. Plus, I'm very shy...and the more familiar people that are there, the more likely I'll actually speak. biggrin.gif
Prince Aries
Most excellent news you bring, Cand. Though I'm none too happy you've formed this elaborate ruse to get out of dancing with me tongue.gif

I love you darling. But seriously, hearing that you're coming again (hopefully) is FANTASTIC news. I can't wait!

And yes, I am still coming. It'll be a cold day in hell before I miss this thing. I'm currently forumulating a bevvy of kinky ways I can tie up Missy and drag her with me. happy.gif
acidteardrop
this is getting increasingly unlikely i will be there. grr, i would do just about anything to get there! I _SO_ want to go! but this evil "father" of mine. He can afford it. Keep me on the maybe list, but don't be surprised if i can't go.

and...


yay cand!
LoLo
We're going to have to make a decision on motels/hotels soon. It would be safer if we all had our rooms reserved around march or april. Cand and I came up with two possibles that I personally like the location of. Thing is I think they both ran about 70 a night.

One is extended stay living, they don't have dual queen sized beds. The only way to get two beds in a room is to have two twins. Then right next door is the Red Roof Inn. They have dual queen sized beds available. Maybe I'll get around to posting more details about the two later. They both are pretty much in the center of everything we'll be doing. Easy highway access, and I know that I can drop people from the pick up locations and then at the hotel pretty quickly. No spending an hour round trip just getting people to the motels, which is what the cheaper ones would be.
oobunnie
Okay. My friend and I are definitely going.

We both have Matazone t-shirts, so I suppose we could wear them. Unless someone decides it would look funny for a large group of people to all be wearing the same thing.
Phyllis
I plan on wearing a Matazone t-shirt (in fact I plan on buying 2 more...then I'll have 1 for each day..hehe). Who cares if we look funny? tongue.gif

I wonder if we have a big enough group to get any sort of discounted group rate at a hotel...hmm.

I'll call and check them out when we get feedback on the motels.
arpeggiodreams
This sounds interesting. At the moment, my finances aren't too great, but by July, I should be fairly rolling in dough. So, I could be a possiblility.

Will you be staying in the cabins/hotel with us? Indeed.

If so, how many nights? All of them, I suppose.

If you are a minor, will you be bringing a parent with you? Have they given you a fairly clear answer about being able to come? Are you willing to abide by the rule of no drinking if you're underaged (hate to keep bringing that up, but it IS really important)? Am a minor, won't bring a parent, haven't asked yet (but usually get what I want), don't drink, have a car and license.

If you are not a minor, will you be interested in going to a local club with us on Sunday night for goth night (it is 18+, you don't need to be 21)? If you're under 18, can you drive (we do need a designated driver still, I think....)? Sadly, I'll be at the hotel playing solitare. I won't be 18 till November. sad.gif
MistressAlti
I just got an okay. Believe it. Dunno how I'll afford this but I _will_find a way. Probably this will be my birthday gift. Fine by me. So. F--king. Worth. Brokeness.

People coming? Just One - me.

Will you be staying in the cabins with us? Yes. Or wherever you all end up.

If so, how many nights? 2

If you are not a minor, will you be interested in going to a local club with us on Sunday night for goth night (it is 18+, you don't need to be 21)? If you're under 18, can you drive (we do need a designated driver still, I think....)? I'm 18, and I will be more than happy to go to the club with you. I can't drive. Not really.

Damn, I am going to be so broke.
Sir Psycho Sexy
I'm very close to booking my ticket today, it would be a good idea before they start getting too expensive British Airways gave me 475 return to San Fran, but my house mate says I can get 450....i'm just too lazy to look
LoLo
Motel information:

Extended Stay America

Look up California, Sacramento, Northgate location.

Red Roof Inn

Like I said these are both next to each other. They run about the same price, although currently I think extended stay is a little cheaper. Problem with it is there aren't as many beds, so it means probably only having one roomie instead of multiple. I'll call and see if we can get discounts for being a large group. Let me know which one you guys are leaning towards.
Sir Psycho Sexy
i retract my previous statement, i can't buy my plane tickets until i pay off my credit card...its overdue so they won't let me spend anymore on it sad.gif

its all mata's fault!! its his t-shirt that did it tongue.gif

I vote for the Red Roof Inn. I prefer the option of having more than one roomie, and if I remember correctly, it's only $5 or $10 more...and the double occupancy rooms are (I think..) the same rate as those at Extended Stay.

Also, while I'm posting here...maybe we should go over what we all want to be called at the meet? I want to be called Candice. Cand is okay, but that sounds weird to me when you say it aloud. Candy is a no-no...for most people anyway. If you have a cool accent, you can most likely get away with calling me that. I'm intimidated by accents. o_O

I vote with Cand.... more ppl in a room is always fun... but i wouldn't be supprised if no matter what we end up with alot of ppl end up in one room together just becuase they end up passing out there or something... laugh.gif

anyway.... I think it's a good idea to post what we want to be called at the meet... ppls can call me Shelly or Wolfie or just about anything as long as i know you're talking to me... and for those of you that know my full name don't use it... only my mother(who is bringing me to the meet) is allowed to call me that.... so yeah... that's it....
MistressAlti
Call me Rachel or Missy. Either one's fine, I'll respond to both, probably Rachel faster than Missy though. laugh.gif

I don't care where we end up - I'm hoping to (illegally) crash on someone's floor and share their room cost later. Seeing as I'm 18 the whole getting a room thing is obnoxious, why the age 21? Christ. Anyway.
oobunnie
As for the hotel thing, it really doesnt matter to us. So whatever everyone wants... Aslong as there aren't rats or anything.

You can call me Jade or Bunnie. Both sort-of sound like a porn stars name anyway eh. I would prefer Jade though. My friends name is Jamie... But none of you have talked to her or nothin yet, so I suppose it doesnt matter at this point.

HEEEEEEELL yeah! i'm gonna see how many ladies i can fit in one bed (with me) XD

credit cards still outta action but i'm game for anything, though i'd prefere to have a bed to sleep in, i get grouchy when i'm tired tongue.gif

EDIT: as for what to call me, Your Majesty will do fine, though a select few can call me Pat/Paddy, whichever they prefere
LoLo
I called the two motels. Extended Stay America doesn't offer any discounts for large groups. They also can't take more than 5 reservations at once. Beds are only one per a room and there is a maximum of 3 people per room.

Red Roof is going to call me back, but from the sounds of it they have a group discount. The thing is with that to participate in it they have to have one person do the reservation. I don't know yet if they have to have money down on the reservation or if they let it all just get paid upon check out and take a credit card number to secure the rooms. I guess I'll find that out on Monday. If they have to take money before hand and we want to do this group discount then I'll offer up my services, but will need money first from people. I don't know how comfortable people are with that. I personally know if I were in your shoes I would feel quite hesitant to do so. Red Roof has 2 beds and a max of 4 people per room.

What to call me at the meet : LoLo, Lo, or Laura. I answer to all unless you call me Laura online. laugh.gif

I'll only call you "Your Majesty" if you can convince everyone to not call me Candy...which is fairly impossible. tongue.gif

Meanwhile....I'd be fine with sending you the money for a reservation, Lo. I won't be able to do so until I get my money from school in March though...but I think that'll be an okay time to make the reservations, won't it?
LoLo
I was figuring March would be the best time, but I'll ask the guy on the phone on Monday.
LoLo
I was just wondering if anyone had an idea of when they think they'll be arriving on Saturday? I know you probably don't have your tickets booked yet but I thought I could prepare ahead. The car rental place in my town doesn't open until 9 am, so I won't be able to leave here until about 9-9:30, which means depending on the traffic, I won't get to Sac until 10:30-11:00 am. I think that works with check in times too, but I have to ask Red Roof what their check in time is. Anyway, if people get in too early I could get the van the day before, but it saves me about 70 dollars by waiting until the day of the meet to get it.
Phyllis
I looked at times on Greyhound. If the schedules don't change, I'll probably get there around 2PM. I figure that'll be plenty of time to get settled before mini-golf, and give you a chance to shuttle whoever arrives earlier to the hotel rooms.
acidteardrop
call me Gonnoreah, Herpes, or Vaginal warts.

oh...umm...or maybe just Erik or acid?

oh hell, call me what you wish. but if anyone calls me a term of endearment I'll flip out dry.gif laugh.gif


I vote the red roof. march may be too soon, cna i revoke my reservation like, a month or so beforehand? just in case it doesn't work?
Phyllis
Huh ATD? I thought you couldn't go.
EvilSpork
I guess I'm going to find out if I can go. I'll even beg and do whatever it takes to go! biggrin.gif
LoLo
I talked to the guy from the Red Roof Inn and I'm thinking this is our best bet because of the costs. They are going to offer us a group discount and will take individual reservations so that I don't have to put down the money for us all. Yay!

The rates are this : 49.99 + tax for a room with 2 queen sized beds.

What I need a.s.a.p. is to find out how many rooms we are going to need and what kind of room that you want. I just got the rate for the 2 queen sized beds rooms. They are available in both smoking and non-smoking. So let me know which you would like so I can get back to this guy and get the rooms reserved. I have to know a number so he can take my card and reserve that many for reservations to be made.

After I get all the info on who's going and what kind of rooms we need, I'll put up the contact info for people to reserve their rooms. I think it's just a matter of calling and letting them know that you're booking a room for the West Coast Mata Meet.

So figure out your roomies and get back to me!
Phyllis
Well, you already know my roomies, but I'll post anyway. I'm rooming with SPS, Lo, and Missy. So I imagine we'd want one with 2 queen sized beds...even though SPS does have that goal of fitting as many women as possible into his bed, I'd like to be comfy while I sleep and not all smushed. tongue.gif I don't know how you want to do the smoking thing..that's up to you. I'm okay with you smoking in the room if you open a window, so if you'd rather do that than get a non-smoking room and go outside..go ahead. Well, provided it's okay with SPS and Missy, that is.

As for the reservation...I'd be fine with giving you my portion of the money through PayPal or something so you could make the reservation for our room, Lo.

PS: How much is sales tax in California, out of curiosity?
LoLo
Ok when talking to someone a subject came up that I also want you to list if you need it. If you're just going to room with one other person and only want a single bed in your room let me know so I can ask the guy when I call back.

Cand I was planning on a non-smoking room for us since I'm the only smoker. Smoking rooms smell nasty and I hate them. If I want a smoke I can go outside I'm used to that already.

California sales tax, well Sacramento sales tax (it's slightly higher than the states sales tax) is 7.50%.

I'm going to also call to clear up prices of the mini golfing and the club. Last I knew the rage was a 10 dollar cover charge to get through the door. It's also a dollar or two for each bottle of water if you're going to be trying to keep it cheap.

What else. For me to book all the rooms to then be later called in for I just have to give them my credit card number, which is fine as long as everyone pays their bills and I don't end up being charged for your rooms. laugh.gif

We aren't going to place you anywhere. You have to make that decision on your own. Look through the thread, see who is going, and PM some people and ask them to room with you.
monkey_called_narth
edit: im no longer going to the meet
oobunnie
Okay. For me and my friend thats coming.
We request 1 room with 2 beds. As I didnt remember to ask her, we'll go with non smoking (I can smoke outside or somethin right?).

As for time of arrival. Umm I'll have to get back to you on that. We figure a 10 hour drive or somethin. Seems theres some sort of mountain we have to drive over. Anyways that part doesnt matter because we will probably arrive the day before so we can sleep after the long drive. But Lo if your the one booking this, I may have to ask you to see if you can get us in for a day earlly. Or I can call, its not like I have a fear complex of talking over the phone with people.

If I can find a way there I'm allowed to go. I would have to take a greyhound, fly, or convince my mum to take a vacation. The greyhound bus station is about 6 miles from the hotel..... So I really don't know whats going on yet I'll have to figure this out, won't I? And if I do take a bus anybody have any suggestions about how I would get to the hotel? Hmm? Ah, anyway... I hope I can go? blink.gif

Not like anybody cares, you would probably leave me stranded at the bus station, and not get me to the hotel! tongue.gif

I should pretty much be making an appearance here, probably for about two weeks or so with a weekend of travel at some point, and at the cabins for as long as anyone else is. I should have the travel arrangements sorted by the end of febuary, but i dont have a scooby what to do about the accomodation. If the cabins need to be booked by march I can sort that then, and I'll chat with someone about getting other arrangements worked out for the rest of the time. If Im going to travel halfway around the world to see you guys I might as well stay and see the sights for a while too, and with the amount of money Im spending on it, a weekend is hardly worth the cost. Bleh.. etc etc etc.

Updates on their way when I get a flight sorted biggrin.gif
