I thought I'd put up this meetup so that folks could plan their schedules for Sakuracon weekend, in case meetup members wanted to meet each other for lunches, particular panels or other special events. We do have a confirmed panel time and location as well: see below!
As always, if you're a member and never been able to make it to a meet before, Sakuracon is a great time to meet some of your fellow fans--and if you're a regular, or even just thought about joining the group but never quite made the leap, please drop by and say 'hi'. :D
Panel details: our panel will be on Sunday, 10:15-11:15 am, in room 206! My panels are usually pretty unstructured, we mostly just use the time to get together, introduce ourselves, make friends and talk about what we like. I'm also hoping we will be able to recruit more interest from the local community, and possibly suggestions for future meetups as well. Depending on timing, the group can also go out to lunch afterwards if people are interested. But as always, if anyone has any ideas of what we might do to spice things up, feel free to let me know!
A side note: to attend this meetup, you will have to pay to get into Sakuracon, and unfortunately they no longer sell day passes due to attendance limits--registration is $55.00 before March 5th, or $60 at the door. You will definitely get your money's worth, tho! Also, as experienced con-goers might already know, panel schedules tend to change at the last minute--so make sure to keep an eye on the posted signs and whatnot, and I'll do my best to send out an e-mail if it looks like our panel has been shifted to a different room or time.
I hope to see you all there!
