Very exciting indeed! SueNYC, exercise beforehand - weather permitting - sounds great.

travelbuff, what about posting about the GTG on other boards to loop in those that might not frequent the US one? I'd be happy to create a post for you with a link back to this one, unless that starts to get too big?

Also, POMAH - don't read posts with GTG in the title. I frequent another board and I don't "do" hotels or get crazy about what is the best seat in a theatre so I ignore those threads. I also ignore threads with ambiguous titles. You'll still find plenty of travel information here.

BTW - I am still friendly with a group of folks (some of whom are here) who began getting together on a board that has been closed for about 5 yrs. We still get together and communicate with each other between gigs.

Hey guys that's the idea, spred the word, be fun to have lots of people there, good food and new friends, can't beat that!!!!!!!!

POMAH, I have been to 3 "events". One was in my Garden, and 4 Fodorites turned up and we had a GREAT time, even though we got rained on. A more recent event only 3 of us came, ggreen was one and we had a GREAT time, a nice girls nite out.

The first event we had probably 20 people at an outdoor plaza, a couple of years ago, and we had a GREAT time.....ummm I'm seeing a pattern here, we had a GREAT time every time.

So come or don't up to you, but I know we're going to have a GREAT time.

On another thread regarding NYC on the US forum, I asked Doug Stallings, one of the fodors editors who lives in NYC, if he was aware the GTG and if he could come, and I hinted at getting some fodors items for us. He said he might be busy that day, but he would ask Amy (the other editor) what they have on hand for us in the way of fodors items for the GTG.

Amy emailed me last night and asked if the editors could also come and I said OF COURSE, that we would LOVE to have them come, so we are up to 20 by my count, the more the merrier, the restaurant can accomodate more than 20 so just let me know anyone else coming.

Hi everyone - we're really excited about this GTG! I'm working on a list of who can attend from our HQ and we'll be bringing along some goodies for this as well. We just got a new shipment buttons that I think you might like. Here's a sneak peak http://instagr.am/p/KNe_SGnE85/

Hi travelbuff, don't know if you remember me, I came to the big outdoor CTG a few years ago. I will try to make this one too. Sounds like a great crowd!

I'm really considering this, despite my seriously introverted nature. I've been to 2 before, one in Paris and one in San Francisco...considerer me tentitive!

elberko, I hope you decide to join us. I can only speak for the few I've met, but I promise we don't bite. And you'll have a ready topic to discuss: travel!

travelbuff, I heard on the post on the Asia board that laurieco and possibly Mr. laurieco will join us. I think emd3 is right, the late summer event to look forward to!
