Friendsofcc meet up dinner at wondercon 2019
« on: March 01, 2019, 03:15:43 AM »
Would anyone like to plan on a meet up dinner for FOCC, like last year? I wasn’t able to meet up last year but I heard it was a bit hit. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions!

I organized the one last year, but won't be doing it this year due to family commitments. Usually everyone picks a night/time and meets at the Marriott for their buffet.

Ah gotcha. Let’s see if anyone else is down to keep the tradition going. Maybe I can help steer the direction as to a time and night everyone can agree on!

While you can make plans now, people won't be able to commit until the program schedule is out. There are more panels well into the evening now than there used to be.

Yes, you are absolutely right. I did notice that the last few years. I’d be out well past 7-8 pm from the last panel I wanted to do.

Yep. I have advance notice of a panel I want to attend that goes from 8-9 pm on Friday. It's amazing how late these things go!

Unfortunately, I can't .  :(  If it helps, it's not a 'big name' panel, but a small one run by a friend. He asked that I not post details for a few days until he has confirmed a few things.

We can start by rough in a time on Saturday. Let's say 7 by the Marriott dinner host station?
We will all meet up and have to wait for a table.....

At some point after the programing comes out we'll get a list together

I plan to be at the Warner Bros. panel on Saturday, March 30 from 5pm to 6pm, so if you can schedule something after 6pm on Saturday that would be great.  For now, Saturday is the only day I'm going.

at this point i'm entertaining volunteers to organize everyone for this dinner.

as it stands now all i am going to be able to do is post

"i'm going to be at the restaurant check in at [insert time]"

Should I make a reservation, or should I wait until a certain number of people commit here?

I just noticed you posted 7pm.  I can be there at that time.

I'd like to go if dinner is planned. It'd be nice to meet other focci members.
