Super-Fam Meetup, Post #2

It has been brought to my attention by athenesolon that the 2013 Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL is being held June 6-9, not the week of the June 14 Man of Steel premiere, as I hoped.

So if we were to still meetup for the movie on June 14, where should we do that?

Poll #1872263 Super-Fam Meetup Poll

Where do you think we should meet? (Select as many as apply)

Go to Metropolis, IL anyway
Meet Mid-west
Meet South
Meet West
Other (will explain in comments)
I probably can't attend regardless of location

I hope we can narrow something down by the end of 2012. :)

With some occupational shuffling, it might end up being a little interesting doing it, but we're still on for next summer. Really don't want to miss out on any of you!

I also still say Metropolis because it's a little more fair for those of us that have to travel regardless and it's a place that actually means something.

ETA: Also, despite the money it would save me, NOT in the South. It's just too hot here that time of year. Too miserable. We ought to try Kansas some other time, though. ;)

I'm sort of holding out hope that they hold a special advanced screening during the Celebration! But they'd have to announce it way in advance so we could make plans.

Kansas is a neat idea even for this event. I wonder which city would work? *ponders*

I'd prefer the West if we're going to watch the MoS premiere. I'm not positive if I'll have enough cash to go to Metropolis, IL but would really like to.

ETA: Um, I meant to also ticky Metropolis, IL. Sorry!

Which is the opposite here. And I wanna see you again!

I tapped both Metropolis, IL and Midwest but I'm slightly more on the Midwest as it would mean actually getting away on a trip (Metropolis is close enough that I'd probably just drive there and then head home as it's a daytrip for me.)
Oct. 14th, 2012 05:27 pm (UTC)
Midwest is best for me, too, but I can swing an overnight or two a bit farther away.
Oct. 13th, 2012 08:48 pm (UTC)
As much as I'd love to do the meet-up, unless it's somewhere within a 10-hour drive time of me (northern Va), I doubt I'll be able to attend. :( Which just sucks, b/c I'd been looking forward to doing a meet-up with everyone.
Oct. 13th, 2012 09:02 pm (UTC)
Bitch, I will find a way for it to happen if I have to drive up and throw you in the damn rental car! *points finger* [And you know that was meant with love.]

E, if we can go, we'll work out a plan. If we have to come up there, get you, and then head out, then we'll figure something out.

I picked "other" because I have no preference where we meet, but I would rather it be for the movie.
Oct. 13th, 2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
It's definitely for the movie on June 14 (unless the Celebration does a screening the week before). Whatever else will happen will be planned after we have a location! :)
Oct. 13th, 2012 09:52 pm (UTC)
I voted Metropolis - I have mixed feelings (A LOT OF THEM) about Man of Steel but if I can swing this I really want to see all of you!! <3

(I do know a guy who has an in on the planning of Celebration - I could ask him if he knows anything about a screening...)

Oct. 13th, 2012 10:00 pm (UTC)
I want you to see everyone, too!

It's early stages, but it's looking like I'll be trying to go to Comic-Con 2013 as well as this meetup. Don't have TICKETS or anything, but it's looking positive right now.

Other .. dates.! I thought the purpose was to see the movie. I would like to see Metropolis, IL, but without seeing the movie, well, I'm confused..
Oct. 13th, 2012 11:59 pm (UTC)
The purpose IS to see the movie.

I was originally hoping that the Superman Celebration and the premiere would be the same week, therefore making Metropolis, IL even more special.

But we can still go there and see the museum, etc. as well as the movie on premiere night. I'm just polling to find out if that's what people still want to do, or meet somewhere else.

Does that clear it up at all?

I'd love to meet you guys, but I will me just into my retirement and finances will be a big concern. I suspect I won't be able to do any optional type travel till the following year, but I will want to talk to all of you - online at least -- about the movie when it opens.
Love to all,
Holly (Kara-el)
someday I will finish my fic :P
Oct. 14th, 2012 12:00 am (UTC)
I definitely plan to do some sort of Skype thing during the meetup so you can chat with us at least! :)

I live in Seattle, so northwest is best for me. Any other Northwestern ppl out there?
Oct. 14th, 2012 02:00 am (UTC)
xenokattz is in Vancouver, and sean_montgomery is out your way as well. I'm not aware of anyone else who has yet expressed interest that is in the Northwest. That could be a mini-meetup, I suppose?

I will definitely say if I am pregnant at that time, it would depend on how far along I am that would factor if I could go or not. If it is not in the south, chances are best I could go if it was in Chicago.
Oct. 14th, 2012 02:01 am (UTC)
Chicago definitely would be a fun meetup spot. I'll put it on the possible Mid-west locations list!
Oct. 14th, 2012 03:12 am (UTC)
The festival weekend is a rough one for me.

The premier weekend is more possible, but I wouldn't fly for it. (Even though there is something pretty cool about flying to see Superman.)

It's also hard to predict my sleep/wake schedule.

If you end up meeting up for the movie within a couple of hundred miles of NJ I'll try to come. Otherwise, don't worry about me.

Basically, don't plan around me. I'll keep an eye on what you post here and see if I can reasonably fit myself in. :)
Oct. 14th, 2012 03:46 am (UTC)
Got it! If it works out, it works out! :)
Oct. 14th, 2012 08:30 am (UTC)
I still have no idea what my situation will be by then, but I voted and hopefully I can try to make it, because I'd love to meet all of you! It's a shame though that Superman week didn't coincide with the premiere though. I'm always up for the west coast, as I live in California, but Chicago seems like a great option too. :D

Oct. 14th, 2012 05:29 pm (UTC)
So you could possibly make Chicago? That suggestion is coming up a lot, and it's an easy distance for me, too. :)
Oct. 14th, 2012 05:37 pm (UTC)
Sadly, there will be no way humanly possible for me to attend, regardless of where it is. We'll be right in the middle of a move on that date :(((( Have fun though and I'll be watching for everyone's reactions so I can live vicariously :D
Oct. 14th, 2012 10:39 pm (UTC)
Oh no, that's too bad! Well, I'll add you to the "possible Skype group" then. :)

For me, I think it'll totally come down to where my finances are when we finally decide to plan, and what my vacation time looks like :)
Oct. 15th, 2012 06:58 pm (UTC)
Fingers crossed that the stars align! :)
Oct. 16th, 2012 08:52 am (UTC)
Iiiiiiiii'm... gonna stay on the undecided with this one. It sucks and I absolutely DON'T want to say that, but I'm probably going to have just moved into a new place by then (my roommate is planning on moving to LA after our lease is up in late April) and I'm not sure what the situation will be by then. If it's in the West, there's a chance I'll be in good shape. But I really just don't know. I have a lot I'll need to be saving up for come that time. :/

*feels bad* I really, REALLY want to say a definite yes.
Oct. 16th, 2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
That's totally understandable! If it works out, great, if not, maybe the smaller NW group can get together. :)
