Default AvatarMeet 2016 News Update

Kaltx ma frapo,

Time for some AvatarMeet 2016 News. We have some very exciting news for you as you will read below. But before that you will be glad to know that we have now secured rooms at a hotel for the meet-up at group rate. Not only that, it is within walking distance of the PNC arena where the Cirque du Soleil show TORUK - The First Flight will be performed. You will find all the details below.

A massive irayo ntxan to Lightstorm!!
We have some amazing news regarding our visit to see TORUK - The First Flight. Lightstorm Entertainment have very generously given us complimentary tickets to see the show! That means it will not cost us a penny to see it. Just how amazing is that?

Not that any proof was needed, but this further goes to show how much Lightstorm appreciate their fans. Irayo ntxan to Jon, Kathy and Brooks who have always been so approachable and supportive to all Avatar fans. We will keep the Avatar flag flying!

Hotel Information
The hotel that AvatarMeet will be staying at this year is the Comfort Suites which is located within walking distance of the PNC arena. We have been able to get a group discount for the meet up event, which includes breakfast, as well as the usual amenities, such as Wi-Fi, pool and fitness center. In addition there is a restaurant next door and round the corner a mini store.

To find out all you need to know and how to book your room click here. On that page you will also find travel information for arriving by plane or train. For overseas travelers there is additional information on travel to the US.

A Visit to the Natives
We're currently working on planning a trip to visit the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation. They are indigenous to the Piedmont areas of North Carolina and Virginia and located about an hour outside of Raleigh. We're still communicating with them at the moment so nothing has been definitively set. Hopefully they will be as interested in us as we are in them.

Activities for AM16
What activities would you like to do? Over the past few years we have tried to include a number of Avatar related activities, such as Cosplay, Na'vi crafts and of course the Na'vi language from Dr Paul Frommer, to whom we will for ever be in his debt. We have also started to make volunteering a part of the meet up too, as that is a way for us to walk the talk and follow through on one of the themes of Avatar.

However, are there any specific activities you would like to see? We can not guarantee we will be able to make them all happen, but we will do our best to make the meet up a fun, worthwhile and fulfilling experience for new and regular attendees.

So if you do have any ideas, let us know though the usual channels such here on the forums, the Facebook page or contact us directly.

And finally...Website & Roll Call
AvatarMeet.com has had the roll call page updated so you can add information regarding your hotel booking. You can also tag if you are looking for a 'roomie' or if you already have one. There are also other criteria to help you keep track of where you are with your meet up planning.

Irayo, Alan, for posting this awesome news for AvatarMeet 2016!

Yes, a BIG Irayo ntxan to Lightstorm for their continued generosity and support! Complimentary tickets for TORUK = Txantsan!

Also, I'm really excited about the planned visit to the Saponi Nation People! I'm very much interested in Native American cultures, so I'm definitely looking forward to this. I always hoped we would one day include this type of event into AvatarMeet, so Irayo to whoever is planning this!

Your love shines the way into paradise.
