Eplaya Meet And Greet 2014 Edition

Post by Drawingablank » Fri Jan 03, 2014 10:49 am

Wednesday (27 August) - 6PM
Barbie Death Village - 6:30 & Ephesus

Although it will be difficult to follow International Incident who has done such a great job of it two years in a row, I have been asked to step up and herd the cats - umm coordinate the M&G this year.

I have set up a sign up sheet for volunteering and bringing stuff on Volunteer Spot - http://vols.pt/uusuPy with the usual categories. Feel free to suggest additional categories.

Note: Volunteer Spot does not require registration, but you do need to use an email address to sign in. I have never had any issues with them abusing it or spamming, but use a gmail or other generic email account if you are concerned.

I look forward to seeing you all in August.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

So has the M & G moved to Wednesday? I arrived on Wednesday last year, so I was putting up my shade whilst you all were eating, drinking, and mingling. I missed the whole dang thing.

At this point in the game, I don't know my arrival date for 2014. Hoping for Tuesday, but things change.

Time and day announcement, please and thank you. :D

It will once again be on Wednesday so as not to conflict with the CORE burn - starting at 6 PM.

Patsh thanks for stepping up to do the sign. I believe we will probably just need one that is similar to last year's.

Count me in. I'll probably need the 'break in the action', meaning I won't want to deal with any of the stuff at the Beacon by midweek and will need a breather.

HHhhhhiii everyone!

Been a crazy couple 'o years since I first joined eplaya and hit up the Burn. I've since moved to San Francisco (yay!) and intend to join the festivities this year. I am really looking forward to doing/bringing something to the eplaya meet and greet.

The one in 2012 was rather remarkable and one of my better memories of the Burn.

Well, no kidding, last night I discovered the un-washed shirt from last years M&G and got it in the laundry. So, at least I'll have something clean to wear this year.

Random question, how common is it for people to use their playa name as their forum name? Wondering if I'd potentially be juggling three separate names at the M&G. :o

I use my playa name as my eplaya name. Keeps life simple.







Of course, I use the same name for everything, so YMMV....
