my weekend...

Hey guys…

Some of you know that I am a diehard Lions fan. (Save the jokes, please.)
I am part of a group that runs a Lions forum online (at
http://www.worldcrossing.com). This past weekend, the forum gang got
together for the weekend to drink, eat, drink, attend a Lions game, and
drink. :wink: Folks flew in from California, Nevada, Tennesee, New York,
Pennsylvania, etc. It really was the best weekend I’ve ever had! Met a
great bunch of people (over a hundred folks showed up!) and had some
great laughs.

I know we’ve kicked around the idea of having a Web Discuss weekend a few
times and I just want to say…if there’s any way we can do it, we really
should! It really is terrific to meet folks you’ve spent so much time
discussing things with over the years!

Deborah

That would be cool (us getting together). I know the perfect place:
Shreveport, LA!!!

Okay, maybe it’s not the perfect place…but I tried. :slight_smile:

LOL!

We’d have to do another survey of where we all live. That way we can see
which areas are most populated, and those will be the areas which are more
likely for a get together. I know we’ve got a lot in CA, a few in the
midwest. Some from DC to upstate NY, and a couple down south in
La./Miss.

hehehe… TRUE.

I’d like to know where everyone is from and are living now…Just out of
curiosity. It’s funny how the interent brings people together that,
otherwise, would have never met. :slight_smile:

I agree with Tom on this one…for my own selfish (and certain food
craving) reasons :slight_smile:

you know, Tom. I was thinking that exact same thing. I mean we both have
ties to Shreveport, LA. If we both walked into Southern Maid at the same
time we probably wouldn’t say 2 words to each other…probably wouldn’t
look each other in the eye for 2 seconds (I’m just guessing). But through
the internet, we can share discussions, business tips, etc, without all
the presuppositions and prejudging that goes on in the “real” world. Heck,
now I’d even buy you a dozen! :slight_smile:

Really? Here, if you see an ad for discount flights to the USA, the small
print will often say that flights to Vegas and Florida are not part of the
sale, or don’t have as much of a discount.

Yup, it’s usually the cheapest airfare w/o any special discounts.

That’s probably true. I normally speak to everyone that I come in contact
with, but it’s just a “how’s it goin’” and the conversation usually ends
with a “fine, how 'bout you”. It’s funny, but I can’t even remember how I
run up on this newsgroup…I mean, before I never hardly even posted to a
newsgroup. Now I check in to see the latest, or just to ask a dumb
question, or maybe even do a little arguing (oops, I mean debating). :slight_smile:

p.s. And you know I’d eat a dozen!! :slight_smile:

Possibly from the path: T-shirtcountdown.com >> talkt-shirts.com >>
t-shirts newsgroup >> wd newsgroup

My path: I asked Gerard Nagle a question about making a multimedia CD, he
didn’t know, but told me that someone in here would probably know.

There’s a few of us in the seattle Area. Shena and myself…though I’m not
there anymore. Now I’m in Maine…ugghhhh I’m not near anything. We’ve
got Chicago area and Indiana.

What was the turnout like as a percentage of the regulars of the
discussion group (e.g. half of them? 10%? etc)

We currently have around 370 members (you have to join the forum in
order to read it). Of those, hmmm…probably 200 or so contribute. The
rest are lurkers.
