3-Day Southern California Polyamory Gathering: Sept 21-23: Newport Beach

This will be a three-day Polyamory gathering (Sept 21-23, 2012) happening in Newport Beach, Southern California. It will feature numerous presentations related to various aspects of and perspectives on polyamory, open relationships, and other types of consensual non-monogamy. Want to attend? Want to help make this event happen? What to be a presenter? Got questions? If so, you are encouraged to check out the website displayed below:


Notice this is a separate event from the grand polyamorous party happening out on Catalina Island the previous weekend (Sept 15-16).

This 3-day Polyamory gathering is primarily intended for Southern California poly folks, but it is open to all persons who are seriously interested in polyamory, wherever they may live. This will include some single males, but strong priority will be given to single females, couples, triads, foursomes, moresomes, and other configurations that contain at least one female.

I want to at least briefly converse with all persons before they are allowed to officially register.

Hope to see you all there!

    The people who attended were great--sweet and friendly--but the event and the organizer sucked. It was unbelievably disorganized, with Dave making stuff up on the fly. No plan for dinner Friday night, no real agenda, no speakers aside from him--just a demand to pay him $49! He didn't respond for days before the event to multiple emails, with no phone number ever listed, so that should have given me a clue. Spending a solid hour hearing him play his favorite songs about sex, from start to finish, with no interruptions and everybody wishing they could talk and get to know one another, was the height of egotism. We paid in cash at the event, and we left the same evening, after being left on our own for two hours to go rustle up some grub. Dave has not responded to THREE requests for a refund. As before, he just ignores all the emails and has basically stolen our money. DO NOT EVER ATTEND AN EVENT HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH DAVE DOLESHAI! You'll be sorry if you do.
