(most of whom don't hang out here as much anymore, but I'm posting anyway)

Is it time to plan a Man of Steel premiere week meetup for next June? I know some people (me) need about a year's notice to plan trips.

Maybe someone else is already doing this and I missed it?

Anyway, if no one else is planning it already, I guess I volunteer to organize. :) Give me suggestions for a location range, date, time, etc.

All comers, not just the 2007-2008 group, whoever is interested, please comment. Pass it along to those who may have left LJ. I'll try to start PM-ing people who I think might be interested that I don't hear from as well.

Sweet idea -- but how many would be willing to come to Canada's capitol -- Ottawa, Canada? -- the location would have to be fairly close for me to attend.

Perhaps a virtual meetup with everyone else? By then we'll probably have webcams implanted in our bodies)

It definitely wouldn't be in Canada (passports and all that) - do you ever cross into the US? Metropolis IL is being kicked around right now. But webcams would be a cool idea! ♥

idk, I've never done anything like this before! If it's in the Midwest I'd definitely think about it. Possibly Chicago? I'm in MN so that would work pretty well.

Is Metropolis, IL too far for you? That's being kicked around right now.

I'm totally into the idea, too! Especially with a year to plan, I think it'd be great fun :D Finances are looking to improve, and should be even better by this time next year.

Keep me posted (and THANK you for sending the message, since I said I'd use my LJ more and I haven't been).

Oh, right. no paid account, no Supes icons. Ummm...*default it is*

Oo, that's great! Do you have a range of locations you'd be able to handle?

I'm really starting to not want to see the film as time goes on, but I would absolutely come to meet all of you. A lot of it on my end is that I would HAVE to know pretty far ahead of time so that we could save up for it. Even middle ground is likely to be expense when coming from Florida and I'll have fight for the time off as soon as we decided when and where.

But absolutely yes!I would love to finally see some of you face-to-face and some of you again! ♥

XD As much as the thought of the room costs terrify me, too bad we can't all pool money a rent out a floor of a NYC hotel. Would be like staying in Metropolis. And there's still Metropolis, IL.

To tell the truth, even if we all end up hating the film, I want to see all of you! So I hope we can work it out.

Metropolis, IL is looking better and better. I will keep you in the loop!

Linked here by Lois since I've been occupied with (a) grad school and (b) Avengers fandom and haven't been keeping up with this flist - I would love to come! No clue what I'll be doing next year and whether I'll actually have money to get there (I'm in Oregon), but if it's possible, I'll be there. :D

I'm glad she caught you! I tried to PM you, but the asterisk may have stymied me. :D I will keep you in the loop, just in case the stars align!

Thank you so much for the PM, dear! I'm honored :)) But the cost to fly from BRAZIL to Canada and the room would be too much. I'm saving to buy a new car next year so it will be nearly impossible to go. It's frustrating because like lois I'd love to meet you guys even if I'm not excited about the movie.

Oh, yeah! I totally forgot that you were in Brazil! Sorry... :( Oh, well, would you be interested in joining via webcam at any point? That has been suggested. :)

Ooh, I've always wanted to be apart of one of these meet-ups! IDK what my situation will be next year, since I will most likely be working (finally! LOL) and all but I'm definitely interested in hearing more. Thanks for the message! :D

Oo, if you're able to travel anywhere in the US, then that would be wonderful! I'll cross my fingers for a job for you, and the time off. :D I'll also keep you in the loop!

I WOULD TOTALLY DO THIS!

... though, in my case, it really depends on where it is. Life has been a little financially tough for me lately, and with Mom's condition on the fritz, it's a little hard for me to prep a Super!Trip when I need to be setting money aside in case something happens with her, y'know?

BUT! This doesn't mean I'm ruling myself out. Let me know the debated place and time, and I'll see what I can do. :)

The consensus right now is Metropolis, IL. So it would involve either a drive (in a better car?) or a flight to Pedukah, KY.

I would love it if you're able to come!

Oooh, someone said St. Louis! I could TOTALLY do that one. :) Illinois isn't too far off-base, either. Would just depend on where in Illinois! (I say we invade my in-laws in St. Louis - they wouldn't know what hit them! Hee Hee.)

The idea right now is Metropolis, IL, which is close to Peducah, KY (the nearest airport, though I'd be driving). How far is that for you?
