Default What about a mini meetup in San Antonio this year?

There were a few of us Texans who could not afford to go to Seattle this year, (along with with one who was lucky enough to attend). I am wondering if anyone living in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Louisiana, would like to spend a weekend in San Antonio in September,or October, just to meet other soaia? We don't have to be in aeana tokx, We don't have to stay in an expensive hotel in downtown, we could just spend a weekend at a Motel six getting to meet and know each other Tokx au Tokx. It would be nice if we could spend the Saturday evening having dinner together on the Riverwalk. What do you think, people? We here in the hinterlands ought to be able to meet each other too. Please let me know if you are even interested, then, if you are, we can put our heads together, and nail down WHEN, and what Hotel.

Oeyń hona yawnetu alor has been checking prices at Motel sixes in the San Antonio area, and HERE is what she had to say:

I've checked rates at two of the Motel Six hotels on the outskirts of town. Near the Aquarium, west of San A it is approx $85 per night.
The one on the east side of town costs $42 per night for two beds.

Those of us "poor Na'vi" in Texas, ought to be able to afford that, plus a "Dinner Out" on the River Walk on A Saturday night. Ateyo and I will bring our Collectors Edition DVD set. and we can all watch it together in a room, or if there are more than that, in the Motel's Conference Room on their giant screen.

HEEEY, Texan's know how to do up a "Bargain Meetup" just FINE. Bring your swimming gear, the Motel will have a Swimming Pool, and because we won't be Blue, WE can go SWIMMING!!!

miaow I am a wee bit tooooo far away from you poor Txans but hope you can meet other aytsmukan si aytsmuke! Wish you all the luck & inspiration (& moneys) you need for this adventure. I had two micro-meetups (just one more ToS member apart from yours truly here) and they were great. We could talk Avatar day in day out & no one would say 'Please change the subject'

Hey if you make it, take my (our) photo with you

We will, ma tsmuke, we surly will, but it looks like those who could not be able to travel almost across the country to go to Seattle, don't want to go a couple of hundred miles to San Antonio for an inexpensive weekend chance to meet Tokx au Tokx with other Avatar lovers, and watch the 18 minute longer Collectors Edition with them. No one has said a word, so it looks like they won't be able to make it. Ateyo and I may just go to Phoenix, and hang with some Bikers that we used to ride with. Before anyone wonders about the 225C.C. Dirt / Street bike, and bikers, My OTHER bike is a 170 MPH ALL OUT Crotch Rocket. THAT is the bike that I rode all the time with them.

YEAH, I know! Ateyo had only been with me about two months, and she went up to an Airport where I was doing Aerobatics Routines. She had her heart in her throat for about half of my dance in the clouds.
It looks like no one is interested in coming to the mini meetup EXCEPT, believe it or not, two people to whom AVATAR means nothing. They are Both Aerobatic pilot friends of mine that haven't seen me in about a Decade. Ateyo mentioned the mini meetup on Facebook, they saw it, and figured that even if they had to be with "Blue People", (Their words), they would, just to hang with me for a weekend. I am still going to belong, and TRY to make constructive comments, here, and on Learnnavi, but I think that my place every July should be at Oshkosh, for the largest gathering of Pilots in the world. Hope to meet you Tokx au Tokx one day Apache.

Ha, I've actually thought a gulf coast meetup would be rather nice, but I myself am running out of time for that.

It was actually an attempt of getting the people that lived within oh 600 miles or so from San Antonio together to socialize for a weekend this fall. having been retired since I was 38, and listening to so many people picking up and crossing the Atlantic to come to the main meetup, I thought that the main hangup for most was just the money. It never even DAWNED on me that those who now didn't have to spend thousands to come to this one at a later date, had jobs and school to go to, and can't just take off on a Friday morning, and return the following Monday evening. As far as the College Student's go, that is a good reason to hold the main meetup in July. Sorry for just coming up with something without thinking about time constraints of students, and married families, the only "Daughter" that Ateyo and I have, has four feet, and fur.
I'm really glad that you changed your photo to one of you at the meetup Moco Loco. It's nice to have a face to be able to associate with the identity.

Niri Te, I have had a picture up of myself for all the time I've been here aside from two weeks when it was a drawing I did.

whoah! I would have loved to see that! Your dance in the clouds, & poor Ateyo trying to hold her heart down!
A bit off-top: I was translating during one air show in Dubai, ages ago, & our bunch was a group of Swedes, Danes, Arabs, Ukranians, me a Rusky (half Polsky) - and an old Nam vet, US Coronel Bull*** Bill (he was nicknames so for exagerrating his war stories ) We were having a time of our lives, & I was thinking: "If our Cold War leaders saw us laughing our heads off they would be turning in their graves!" So much brainwashing, & a huge number of people hating each other without even having met each other... what! THAT was a huge bull***.

Cloud Dancer, that was the name for your plane, right? how is that beauty doing?

ah well go figure well... as I've said, as long as you enjoy, this is what matters. And srane, I hope to meet you Tokx au Tokx, too!

Arrggghh factors! I tried to pull something during this meetup & I thought it was a wonderful idea, & people would just sign up, enthusiastically... But ahem, they didn't & when I tried to keep in mind ALL the factors involved I freaked out! of course it crushed.
The moral: don't assume, 'assume' makes 'ass' of 'u' and 'me' (hope I haven't been too rude )
