Eplaya Meet & Greet 2016

Post by Drawingablank » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:03 pm

Looks like I have been tagged to host the M & G again.

Tentative details:

Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro - conveniently located at 6:30 and E.
Wednesday of burn week.
6:00 PM till everyone wanders off.

We are still way early, but I will post the volunteer sign ups once the details are firmed up.

For the newcomers, the Eplaya Meet & Greet is a pot luck style get together for Eplaya members with food, booze, and great company. Everyone who is on Eplaya is welcome. Come and meet all the folks behind those avatars.

This has been the highlight of my burn every year, and I look forward to seeing you there.

Lucky, you always bring "something". I will bring some swag. Not sure yet what it will be this year, need to sit down and "work on my art".

Gotta hope I have better success in getting a ticket this year.

I'll bring a case of Hamms, or Olympia or some other cheap beer as long as the cans get recycled, and
a bottle of Cemetery Gin

I cannot get there until around 7, but then I can guard the gate for a while again.
Might be an idea to secure the rear of the venue better. Last year I saw people strolling in and out back there.

I sent a few couples who meandered in the back up front to get their name badges. I got some damn dirty looks when the one couple figured out they'd been headed off from the buffet...

Looking forward to meeting everyone....providing we get tickets. If I have any chili left over from the Monday night chili contest, I'll bring it and the Wife unit will be bringing something to mess with the senses. With her, it is anybody's guess....and I have known her for over 20 years and still scratch my head a lot.

I think I'll make my way over this year. Skipped last years burn because of my wedding..
Up for making the name tags again. Was happy doing them for 2014. Unless whoever did them last year if fine with y'all.

Eplayans are some of the most over-prepared folks at the event. Maybe at the meet & greet we could help each other by providing that one piece you need. If someone would have told me they needed sunglasses, goggles, a flashlight, batteries, warm longjohns, a mantel for their lantern, blanket, tire or tube for their bike I could have handed it over. Perhaps a little clipboard would put the 'haves' together with the 'have nots'.

Mr Right, I made name tags last year and they were a epic FAIL. They peeled right off so we used Drawing a Blank's left over ones. My interest has flagged since I did it wrong. Please make them for us.

I can make the sign again, and help with both/either set-up and/or clean-up.

Not sure at this point if I'll have any food to contribute, but there's still lots of time to figure that out.

This sounds great. Being a relative newbie here and somewhat shy in public this would be a good way for me to meet people.
