Kick off Winter Break - Frolic SF

Plans have Changed. Since it appears It's going to rain on Friday AJ has changed the meetup to occur at the academy of Science.

Link to the Academy site

And if you want to hang out after the academy, since it closes at 5pm there's always the Metreon where we could watch the Hobbit.

    At least we got to have a little more fun before the Christmas break!

    I can't share the perspective that this meet up wasn't fun. I had a blast and got to do something new. The Westfield(?) mall was new for me and I enjoyed that. I liked just hanging out. I say, the quality of the experience is what you make it. If you let it be boring, you only have yourself to blame. If the meetups are getting redundant, then maybe we should try something new. I have noticed that, on the three or so meetups I've attended, that we have tended to stay around Market street and the Metreon. That is good by me; you guys are a fun group and I always enjoy talking about the ponies when I'm feeling gregarious. But if you want to try something new, lets it. I'm all for it. And I'm sure there are lots of other folks that will be too.

    Talk about Deja Vu! We pretty much just got to hang out and retrace almost everything we did for the Rise of The Guardians meetup! Except in reverse since we started off by seeing the movie for that meetup and we ended with watching the movie for this one. I still had fun and it was great to see everypony too. The fact that everything was changed last minute isn't really any person's fault and fun is what you make it! So have some and enjoy it! I sure did.

    Was fun to hang out

    Not the best. But good enough.

    December 21, 2012

  • Dee C.

    I, too, did not care for the way this went at all. Not much fun just milling about; we really need to start organizing these meetups better, have some more set agenda in mind.

    Sloppy and slow. We spent a lot of time doing nothing in one of many random locations for far too long without any real objective. The choice of places, according to Bryan, had also become routine somehow. I guess it's to be expected after two last-minute change of plans. Don't ever do that again. Metreon is also completely different from the last time I was there; now it's like a bad mall instead of the goober haven I remember. It was still good to get out, and I got to make a special delivery.

    A bit late to say, but I can't make it. Hopefully next time.

    December 21, 2012

  • Dee C.

    I can't get a hold of anyone. Perhaps one of you could call me?[masked]

    December 21, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    I'm here, doing a quick tour of the target. [masked]

    December 21, 2012

    • Dee C.

      Do you have another number? I called that and I got a message that said it was invalid.

      December 21, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    We're going around Market street now. Call us and catch up with us

    December 21, 2012

  • Dee C.

    Hm, looks like I'll be a bit late. Forgot it was payday at work today!

    December 21, 2012

    • Dee C.

      And now even longer. Got halfway there on BART when I realized I forgot to validate my parking. Ugh. -_-

      December 21, 2012

    • Dee C.

      Finally on my way for real this time. Nothing short of a disaster is stopping me now!

      December 21, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    In front of the Target entrance now, inside

    December 21, 2012

  • Luis Jr. M.

    Hmm, going to the Hobbit tonight? I like this idea. I'm working until 5 at SF State, but since it's Pay Day, I might go. I need to stop by Marbles for a Christmas Gift anyway. :P
    So, will it be at the Metreon after 5? I'll check in with this post later on to see if anyone's plans or locations have changed since then!

    December 21, 2012

  • Damon Y.

    I'll see you guys around 6pm if you guys are still in SF around then

    December 21, 2012

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    Actually I should be there around 1-2PM

    December 21, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    A just told me he's not coming.

    I am heading over there in a bit, see you all at the front entrance?

    December 21, 2012

  • Nymo

    I might be going around downtown early as well, so to make it easy on for you guys to spot me: I'll be dressed as Marty McFly

    • Kane D.

      nice, see you there :)

      December 21, 2012

  • Kane D.

    just to let you guys know, my bus will be getting me there around 11:10. so if you get there early i'll be there to chill with till the rest arrive.

    December 20, 2012

  • Sean N.

    So just to get things crystal clear here, this changed from Golden Gate Park to The Academy of Science and then Metreon to watch The Hobbit? I'm up for either the AoS or watching The Hobbit or both, but what's everybody else doing? Also, are we syncing up the times so that people who can only attend one of the two events can get together? Ex: Academy of Science at 12:00PM and Metreon at 5:00PM.

    December 20, 2012

    • TGPFluttershy

      We should be good until the movie, we'll just mess around until then. No one wanted to do the academy of science

      December 20, 2012

    • Sean N.

      So that's a no on the Academy of Science then? Okie dokie lokie, Metreon it is!

      December 20, 2012

  • Kane D.

    we're losing people maybe a compromise, those that want to go to AoS do so while the rest meet at the metrion. then later when the AoS group is finished we can all meet up again, keeping in contact through cell numbers. i've been waiting weeks for this and really want to hang out so please can we make this work?

    December 20, 2012

    • Kane D.

      can work, my number is[masked]-6672. when your ready to join us you can give me a call and find out where we are.

      December 20, 2012

    • Richard T.

      Cool beans. Mine is[masked]-5329. I'll give you a call when I'm on the way.

      December 20, 2012

  • Dee C.

    Yeah, I've got to agree with the folks below me, $30 a ticket is kinda steep to me, even if a student discount does bring it down to $25. Perhaps we could do something that does not have quite as high a cost?

    December 20, 2012

    • Kane D.

      will we see you at the metreon at noon then? thats where those of us with little money are meeting up.

      December 20, 2012

    • Dee C.

      I suppose so; I could show you all the place where Gabe Newell jumped three years ago!

      December 20, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    I think Metreon would work better

    December 20, 2012

  • A.J. G.

    It seem not allot are down on going to the academy of science museum. in that case we could change it to the metreon though im not sure if i could go

    December 20, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    I'm going to the academy and see who's gonna be there, and then head to the metreon

    December 20, 2012

  • Nymo

    So, how many are up for meeting up at Metreon? As much as I'd like to go to the California Academy, it's a bit out of my price range at the moment and I kinda want to try going during their "Nightlife" events (which is actually cheaper at a mere $12 for 21+).
    Being that downtown is much closer to me, I wouldn't mind meeting up with ponies around Metreon.

    December 20, 2012

    • Kane D.

      so far lex and I will be there for sure, hope you can join us :)

      December 20, 2012

  • Lex

    So Science Land is happening at noon. Is everyone else going to be bopping about the Metreon at that time, or will we all be waiting for a while to rendezvous all at the same time?

    December 20, 2012

    • Lex

      Right then, even one person is enough for me. Even if it's just you and me for a few hours, I'll be there 'round 12.

      December 20, 2012

    • Kane D.

      that works, i'll be sure to be there. anyone else who isn't going to the science academy feel free to join us. those going to the SA my numbers up there if you want to call and meet up with us after your fun.

      December 20, 2012

  • Kane D.

    really was looking forward to this, but now your changing it to a free activity to a cost. we should go to the metron or the mall or something.

    December 20, 2012

    • Richard T.

      I agree. I like the Metreon and Hobbit idea. I Like the Academy of science idea, but I tend to hit my limit around four hours. And I really want to watch the Hobbit.

      December 20, 2012

  • Kane D.

    just checked the pricing, i am not a student and i'm an adult with travel added in this would cost me $50+, I don't have that much this time of year >.<. can we please do something else?

    December 20, 2012

    • Lex

      I am in agreement with this. As badass as the Academy of Science sounds, I was not expecting to have to pay for anything beyond travel expenses as of last night.

      December 20, 2012

  • Derik V

    Cost of admission seems a bit high for some don't you think? Given that we also have transportation costs. Maybe Academy of Science isn't such a good idea.

    December 20, 2012

  • Richard M.

    I could barely afford coming to this with just the cost of transportation (around 15-20 dollars). I simply can't go with the added cost of admission. And I was already iffy on going anyways.

    December 20, 2012

  • A.J. G.

    Dont forget your student card. its $25 for students, also save your muni tickets because discounts are provided for muni riders as well

    December 20, 2012

  • Lex

    The minimum budget shot up from 0$ to about $30. I might not come, which is too bad since it looks really cool.

    December 20, 2012

  • Damon Y.

    I won't be able to make it to the academy of Sciences, but I'll be buying tickets to watch the Hobbit at the Metreon after 6pm so if anyone wants to join me call me at[masked]

    December 20, 2012

    • TGPFluttershy

      My dad's coming next month and I promised I'll see it with him, sorry

      December 20, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    Writing this just in case somepony doesn't get a notification:

    Venue has changed to the academy of science. See you all there!

    December 20, 2012

  • TGPFluttershy

    Academy of science? sounds good to me!

    December 20, 2012

  • Damon Yee changed the location from Golden Gate Park to CA Academy of Science

    December 20, 2012

  • Damon Y.

    I got an idea how about if it rains we all go to the Metreon as a backup in case of rain?

    December 19, 2012

    • Dee C.

      Good idea; the forecast says it's pretty much all but guaranteed to rain.

      December 19, 2012

    • Kane D.

      lets decide that quick, i need to know which bus to catch and which stop to get off

      December 19, 2012

  • Richard T.

    This sounds like fun, and I haven't been on a meet up in a while. Sweet that I can go. But this is awfully far from the Bart station. I'll need to find some way to travel in the city besides the Bart before attending. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm a bit new at traversing San Fran.

    December 18, 2012

    • Richard T.

      I love Google. Totally attending this baby. Thanks to Muni!

      December 18, 2012

  • Sean N.

    Looks like it'll be fun! Hopefully it won't rain!

    December 17, 2012

    • Kane D.

      that would suck

      December 17, 2012

  • Derik V

    Looked at weather forecast. There's a high chance of rain on Friday. Looks like a storm. Might be a good idea to relocate if it happens. Don't want to be outdoor in Golden Gate when it pours.

    December 17, 2012

  • Dee C.

    Haight Street's relatively close to Golden Gate Park; that might be a possibility as well. Also, there's outdoor ice skating set up at a few places around the city; are there any in GG Park?

    December 16, 2012

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    I'll be off school at 3:18PM..I hope this meetup can last that long ..

    December 11, 2012

  • Kane D.

    Would those attending this then head over to the end of the world party after? (assuming of course that the location turns out to be in San Francisco)

    December 4, 2012

  • A.J. G.

    Decided a nice walk around GGPark would be really nice especially during the holidays

    November 21, 2012

  • November 21, 2012

  • A.J. Gutierrez changed the location from n/a to 1 Music Concourse Dr

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
