Global Reddit Meetup Day

 

**See what you can help pitch in here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16mVvaWCMxU5GdqrUu1K63e9isD7LDdM9hE7OwaS90x4/edit?usp=sharing **

2013 Global Reddit Meetup Day is officially booked!!

We have a shelter house rented for the day at Paul Ruster Park (address is listed above). The idea behind this meetup is to celebrate the Reddit culture we have grown and fostered here in Indiana over the past several years. I know there are dedicated groups all over the state that have regular meetups but for one time a year we get the chance to come together and represent Indiana for the Global Reddit Meetup Day!

If you are a Reddit meetup seasoned vet you should be here!

If you are a lurker who has never made it out to a meetup event yet...you should be here!

If you are new to the area and want to me like minded people...you should be here!!

If you just heard of Reddit yesterday but think it is awesome...then you should be here!

This is your chance to come and connect with a great group of people who share the same interests as you! Everyone is welcome including kids!

There is going to be a suggested $5 donation to help cover the costs of renting the shelter house, paper products and the drinks we will have available.


Here is what the planning committee is providing:

-Paper Products (plates, cups, napkins, table clothes, forks/spoons)

-Meat (burgers, brats, hot dogs)

-Drinks (ice, 2 big 5 gallon containers of lemonade and water, maybe another one that is an adult beverage...)

-Music (Eric will be bringing out his dj gear to spin some tunes)

 

Here is what we need from all of you to make this successful!
**Please note the number of people RSVP'd about a week in advance so you know how much to make!!**

Misc Info

-There is a dog park connected to this specific park so feel free to bring your pooch is he/she is well behaved.

-There is a playground for the kids

-Tons of open field space for whatever activities we find ourselves wanting to get into...I am thinking a giant game of kick ball or wiffle ball needs to happen!!!

-Plenty of parking right next to our shelter house

-Access to outlets

 

Updates:

Please check out the link to see what items are being brought and what items we are still needing!
https://docs.google.com/document/d/16mVvaWCMxU5GdqrUu1K63e9isD7LDdM9hE7OwaS90x4/edit?usp=sharing

Please let me know if you have any questions! The planning committee is always looking for more people to get involved with creating and suggesting meetups for future events so if that is something you are interested please do not hesitate to talk to either Kirk or myself (Kayleigh)!

 

Update 2:

After the park there will most likely be a evening pool party at my (Kirk's) house that will last till whenever.  If you are planning on swimming please bring some appropriate swimwear.  We may have small snacks there but if people are really hungry there are several pizza joints a couple of blocks away for orders.  Our backyard in ground pool should be ready for use.  Some general rules...

- If you are drinking you are NOT driving home (obviously).  We have futons or a hide a bed for people to pass out on if need be.

- We like our neighbors and don't want to piss them off, so while we can be reasonably loud lets not take it to an extreme.

- We have three dogs in our house, a german shepherd, a rottweiler, and a bichon.  We can put them in the kennel if people are uncomfortable but we'd rather have them out to socialize.  The german shepherd can be a bit clumsy but they all like to be petted and given attention.  The rott will not hurt you or chew up your insides (hopefully).

- We have a large dining room table if folks want to bring board games, and a Wii if people want to play on the big screen (though it isn't hooked up yet).  If so we only have one controller so people will have to bring their own.  The only games we have are House of the Dead 2 and 3 and Michael Jackson The Experience (a dancing game that is really fun when 'inebriated') so bring em' if you got them.

- We do have some seating outside but please bring a lawn chair if you are planning to eat outside.  We'll have tiki torches or something to ward off the bugs.

- BYOB, and try not to drink other people's stuff without asking.

- We don't have a large speaker system suitable for outside so music-wise you'll have to suffer inside with some good trance :)  I'm not a DJ so there won't be some large mix but I think my playlist is good (biased of course).

 

I think that's it for now.  If I think of anything else I'll put it here.

 

**RSVP NOTICE**

Since we are providing meat, drinks and such we want a strong head count of people who are planning on attending! If you have RSVP'd and know you are not going to make it please make sure you change your status. If you are bringing the family, a friend or significant other please note that on your RSVP! Thanks much!

    Wish I didn't have to pay to use the dog park, but it was a good time.

    I'm going to be pretty late; if I miss the park could somebody give me an address/directions to the pool party?

    Due to financial issues, we're no longer trekking to Youngstown, OH for a family reunion, so we plan to make an appearance. +1 DJ

      Sounds good, Lindsey. About how big is it, btw?

      So sorry to be so last minute but I've been called in to work and won't be able to make it :(. Really sorry for such late notice!

  • Yan L.

    Guys, just to let you guys know that I'll most probably be late since a friend of mine wants to catch a movie before we go there. The movie doesn't end until like 4pm. So, we might be there kinda late. Also, I mentioned about prolly getting out early from the event.. We'd prolly stay longer since we decided not to go back to Purdue this weekend. Mostly because I have to work tomorrow (Sunday). See you guys later!

  • Yan L.

    I'm from Purdue, but I don't really know anyone here yet. I'm here only for an internship, but there's a possibility that I might stay around for a full-time here in the future. Hoping to make new friends here in Indy other than my coworkers..

    I'm into PC gaming, movies, tv shows, food, anything that could light up the conversation really.

    Never really been to an event like this where I don't know anyone ..Is there a dress-code for the event? Also, I'm not sure what to bring..

    June 1, 2013

    • Yan L.

      So..like I said, I wasn't sure what to bring. After looking at the list, I might just bring some potato salad/fruit tray. It looks like potato salad could be a good option tho. Well, I'll look up the list again before leaving from home to the meetup place. See you guys there!

      1 · June 13, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      You can bring whatever you'd like. The list can be edited so just add what you are bringing whenever you decide! Thanks!

      I couldn't figure out how to edit the word doc but Jaxon and I will bring buns (just let me know about how many) and our board games.

      1 · June 10, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      Sounds good. I will update the doc.

      June 10, 2013

  • Kayleigh D.

    Less than a week away! Be on the lookout for an updated list of what everyone is bringing so you can see what what items we still need. Looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying the afternoon hanging out with you all!

    I've only been to one reddit meetup before, wayy back like a year and a half ago when I first moved to Indy, and haven't gotten off my ass to come to another, but this seems like a good opportunity. Should be able to make it out unless something crazy comes up between now and then. And if you're in need of another DJ, I need an excuse to brush the dust off my decks...that is, if you guys like trance / dubstep / glitchhop / dnb.

    1 · May 23, 2013

    • Neil

      Saturday is so stacked...bassnectar, 12th planet, paul oakenfold, flosstradamus, zedd, zed's dead. Probably looking forward to bassnectar the most, then 12th because he's seriously the best I've seen next to kill the noise. Dude dropped it so much harder than skrillex when those two came here last year.

      2 · June 7, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      Gah Zedd playing into Zeds Dead=magic. Enjoy that whole weekend man, it's gonna be awesome!

      2 · June 7, 2013

  • James Edward Milligan I.

    Any r/hookah people coming? I'm thinking about bringing my hookah.

    3 · June 2, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      Probably easier to save hookah for the after party. Might draw attention at the park and we aren't gonna be there that long. That being said assuming that someone would openly post about drug usage on our meetup boards is laughable...so don't worry Bobby, no one will allow you to go home smelling like Hookah if you don't want to.

      3 · June 4, 2013

    • James Edward Milligan I.

      As long as the hookah's outside or in a well-ventilated room, the smell is not bad. Wind will blow away most of the smoke, and the burning as opposed to cooking is also great for the smell of the smoke. It's also entirely possible to use a hookah without tobacco. They make special tobacco-free shisha and the "steam stones." I may actually bring steam stones. And I've heard of people using hookahs for marijuana, but I'd never let anyone do it with mine and I wouldn't recommend others do it; marijuana produces a resin that would majorly gum up the pipe and discolor the vase. Not to mention the illegality.

  • Lindsey S.

    It's awesome to see so many people signed up for this one, especially people that aren't regulars for the meetups! I can't wait to meet all of you that I haven't met before. :D

    • Colin C.

      This will be a great event to get out and meet a lot of people, and there is going to be (at least from the rsvp list) a good mix of people new to the group and the seasoned old regulars.

      May 31, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      Hey Ren! Glad to see you re gonna be joining us. I know there are a few film buffs in our group so I am sure you will fit right in!

      May 20, 2013

    May 13, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

      If I have anything to do with it there probably will be..I think taking 40 people downtown will be tough to organize.

      May 13, 2013

    May 10, 2013

    • Kayleigh D.

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.
