« on: January 09, 2017, 08:10:28 PM »
If you are possibly interested in a FOCC Meetup for dinner or drinks sound off below.

It is in the middle of Passover so I may not be able to eat but I would welcome a hangout

This, of course, comes as a complete and utter shock.  :P

I'd be interested.

I'm flying in on the 8th, and am planning on visiting Disney World a couple of days before SWC. Could do a meetup those days also.

FoCC newbie here - will be there with some other people and not sure what they might have planned, but will try to drop by any FoCC meetup! I'm leaving Sunday evening so could do Thurs, Fri or Sat (and have voted as such).

This is actually coming up fairly quickly now all things considered! You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, any thoughts on when/where for this?

Personally, I haven't been to Orlando since maybe 1991 or 1992, so my knowledge of the place is fairly limited. But excited to see everyone!

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login not sure yet, my thoughts were at the surrounding hotels since Orlando is large and most people wpn't have a car to get around

Look at places at Point Orlando. It's a touristy area with lots of bars and restaurants about 2 blocks for the convention. I am local, could recommend a couple places if you guys want.  I might be up for a get together. Thursday night sorta looks good....  Disney has a special event Friday (not really special, just a cash grab at Hollywood Studios) so some people may be attending that. Sunday of course is Easter for us Christians (sorry, Mike). So that Leaves Thursday or Saturday as the best days in my opinion.

I'm down for a meetup. I was eyeing pointe Orlando too. Thursday night is probably best. But I'll most likely end up in that area every day since it's so close

OK so since there is no clear winner why not call a Saturday night FOCC meetup?  I know the Galactic Nights is Friday night so trying to get around that

So roll call who is interested. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
