      Oi isik no problem at all. On October 8th we are teaming up with the Phx Suns vs Brazil Flamengo Basketball game at US Airways Center. First time Brazis team will be here to play the Suns. I was gonna suggest it. But not sure how many basketball fans in the group there is. Aside of that we have our 6th annual Carnaval do Brazil at the Venue of Scottsdale again in 2015.

      Hi Joanna, I though they were going to to a world tour in Asia by then (?) When and where is the concert in AZ?

      September 14

    • Joanna

      Ana, it's on the 19th of this month at 8:00. U can go online for details! :)

  • Ana V.

    My friends and I had fun! However, It was disappointing we couldn't find more than two members of Meet Up. These were a nice couple from El Salvador and Guatemala. My friends were looking forward to meet more of my Meet Up peeps. Maybe next time.
    Suggestion: maybe it would be a good idea to carry a bandana on the arm of one color for that specific even let's say next event we all wear a red bandana on the wrist or arm, at least until we can find each other or a good group. Any other suggestions?

    • Işık (.

      Hi Ana, Im glad you guys had great time. It's really hard to get huge group together at these type of events. People started to text me around 11am and some members went to event after 5pm. That's why I don't set time or place to meet but I liked your idea we can definitely try :) You will meet with many members if you could join happy hours, hikes or potluck parties. Hope to meet you soon...

      2 · September 8

    • Ana V.

      I don't blame you there were like 66 attendees coming different areas. Hope the bandana works for this kind of events. Thanks for taking the idea into consideration. I check on the happy hour!

      September 6

  • ELISABETH R

    Idea...How much would it cost to have our very own name tags made. For instance...Active Internationals title with blank space under it to fill in our names? I'd be willing to buy one. Much easier to identify without walking up to strangers asking them if they are with the group. Make a little profit and put toward Meetup site cost.

      Or we could always b creative and make our own name tags

      Elizabeth that is an outstanding idea. However I believe you can print a name tag using meetup website for free if I remember correctly.

    I ordered my tickets on the 26th and received no discount. Paid the $12 plus free recording, which I have not downloaded as yet. Perhaps, I was to book through our group and was not aware of that. No big deal, sunken cost, but IF we are to order through International, others may want to be made aware of that.

    So where do we get the group rate tickets? I see at the site $12/one...$20/2...$18/one + CD...etc. Where is the $10/one ticket + CD? Thanks

    1 · May 18

    • (Miguel) DJ S.

      Hey Steve, thanks for getting in touch. Actually, the prices are discounted when you purchase more than 1 ticket. Group Rate of 4 tickets are $38.00, which would be a savings of almost $10.00, a group rate of 10 tickets would be almost $20.00 in savings. As for the CD and Ticket combo, CD's are $10.00, and tickets are $12.00, plus tax and shipping would be around $24.00. So the discounted price is $20.00. Savings of $4.00. Also, if you want a "digital album - No CD", every ticket order comes with 1 Free download album emailed to you. So buy any 1 or more tickets, get a digital album free. First 100 orders only! So that is also a way to save. Hope that helps.

  • (Miguel) DJ S.
