You do not need a ticket to the meet and greet.

If you are however looking for a gift ticket to the event, I suggest you post under tickets. I do hope it works out for you, but I warn you this is a bit close to the event to start looking for a ticket, especially a free one from a stranger.
He was dead.. serious... too.

oooh oooh oooh so excited. Plus it's in stumbling distance to my camp... and I'm a sucker for massage oils (and quite gullible under the influence of wine).

This is either a dangerous, or awesome thing to admit to.

The glitter and stickers are recycled, too. They came off the skin of a hippie.

The M&G will be held at Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. We do respectfully request that you bring something to share, such as beer, alcohol, mixer, snacks, or ice. NOTE: The wine bistro is closed for those three hours! In years past we have been drained of our wine and we really don't want that to happen again. So, who's in?
I'll wander on by -- first burn, camping alone, don't know a soul, sounds like fun, will bring blue tarantula tequila

So... I've been kicking myself for over two weeks, and I'm still not over it. I missed the Meet & Greet AGAIN!

That darned Kinetic Treasure Hunt kept me tearing around BRC with joyful abandon and forgetting to return to the Meet & Greet.

So.... No treasure hunt or anything else for me on that day next year. Gotta get my priorities straight.

Now I want photos of everyone who made it to the Meet & Greet -- except those I met elsewhere. Pretty please?

Oh... is there a 2011 thread yet?

as well you should be kicking yourself, Elliot:

many of us were waiting for you to show up..........and, when you didn't, we had to resort to putting your name tag on a blow up doll...........




well, it was "almost" like you were there..........

I have missed every meet-n-greet since they began because I am terrified of barbie dolls since that one time when I was a child...

Oh... pardon me.... I suggested photos, and then I neglected to start with my own absent(minded) self. Here is what I am alleged to have looked like late in the week.

Oh, uh... sorry about that. I came straight from the Naked Bike Ride And Pub Crawl, and didn't think about it.

As for the picture... with that hat, and my beard not trimmed for a week, I look like a bum wintering on a beach in Mexico -- but a happy bum, I like to think. :lol:
