Default AvatarMeet 2013: Location and Date Proposal Poll

AvatarMeet 2013:

Your AvatarMeet team have been taking a long hard look at where and when to hold the next meet up. From the survey that was conducted post AvatarMeet 2012, there was an even split between east and west coasts of the US as a location. We have considered following the Avatar Exhibition, which will be in Indianapolis next summer a well as places that provide links to the themes in Avatar and people's suggestions. Another important factor is being close to a large population of Avatar fans and having good transport connectivity. So taking into account feedback from both the survey and clan members, the proposal for 2013 is:

Proposed Location: Washington DC

Proposed Date: 25th - 28th July 2013



What's with the thinking?:
  • Takes AvatarMeet to the east coast of the US to allow fans from that side the country the opportunity to meet.
  • It is more accessable for people from across the Atlantic to join in the gathering.
  • Excellent transport links by rail, road and air both nationally and internationally.
  • All visitor attractions are in the same locality.
  • Theme link to Avatar 1: Space and Flight Museum.
  • Theme link to Avatar 2: National Museum of the American Indian.
  • Theme link to Avatar 3: Botanical Garden.
  • Theme link to Avatar 4: Washington Zoo.
  • The first three are all located next to each other, with Washington Zoo a short metro ride away.
  • The date avoids events like Comic-Con.
  • All the museums are free to visit.
  • All the places of interest are in the same locality.
AvatarMeet 2013 Tag Line:
AvatarMeet 2012 have the tag line "Uniting the Clans". This was suggested by Zephania from Learn Na'vi and seemed very apt. However, we would very much like to have a new tag line for the 2013 meet up. Your planning team have tried hard...very hard...to come up with some ideas - 72 in total...some of which were maybe not quite Avatar related or repeatable! So having exhaused ourselves, we though why not go to the people who are our inspiration? You! So here is the challenge:

Come up with a tag line and post it below. Ideally no more than three words, but this is not a strict rule. Na'vi is acceptable, providing a translation is also provided.

So go at it.
Closing date is 31st December, after which the planning team will pick the five best and post them for a voting poll shortly after.



We look forward to your input.

Your AvatarMeet Planning Team

I can do the time and location, but don't want to say yes - I'm coming from the UK, so it is hugely expensive to get to anywhere in the US, which might mean I couldn't get to a meetup in 2014. The difference between either side of the US is also insignificant compared to the cost of getting there at all.

I would prefer a location somewhere in Europe, which would be much cheaper to get to.

Technically I would choose the third option, but that's just because I'll be completely out of money by that time. If I somehow run into some, I'll go, but as of now, not going.

You guys don't have to worry about running into ATEYO or I while there, the date conflicts with the World's. Largest Airshow at Oshkosh, and we will be flying up in one or both of our aircraft to spend a solid week to ten days with pilots of other experimental aircraft. NIRI TE. (AKA Barnstormer Brie)

Maybe since this is supposed to be second consecutive meetup of people from multiple forums (if I got that right) maybe something along the lines of "Continuing the Journey" or "Continuing Together" or...something? I dunno, sorry, can't think of any better ones.

No idea if I'll be going to this one, but Washington sounds like an excellent place to meet up in. Don't forget to visit the Natural History Museum along with the others listed!

Who says you have to drive? You could always take the bus or the train. Might save to a bit of stress, gas and parking charges. It's greener too. What we did last time was work out general transport cost for folks. Once it is decided we'll start pulling together this sort of info. Hope you can make it.

@ Empty Glass - Irayo for your suggestion. We'll add it to the list. Hope you can make it. It'd be great to meet up again. Yeah, thanks for the link to the Natural History Museum. That is a good place to visit...although nothing came to life! Hehehe

A few places around there I've wanted to visit for a very long time - we really must see the Space Shuttle, then it will be 3/5 on favourite air/spacecraft than I've seen AFK

How about Journey to the Eastern Sea or the Clans of the Eastern Sea or something like that? It's mentioned when Jake goes out to gather the clans, Horse Clan of the Plain, Ikran Clans of the Eastern Sea.
