NorthEast Coast USA Meet Up (????)

So. I've been thinking about this a bit, but I feel like I could host a small meet up IRL somewhere on the East Coast...

I mean, I'm not the coolest person ever, but if there was decent amount of interest, I'd probably draw and print some goodies to hand out even. Maybe do some neat activity?? This is no way sponsored by actual TW people, simply my own pondering.

So, just to gauge interest. Definitely in summer, probably one of the bigger hub cities for easy travel? But smaller places would be cheaper in terms of. If interested, please post:

A. What city would be best for you, and what cities would still be doable.
B. Any preferred meet up activities?
Do we wanna just have a field day at a park? Go to a cafe and all have a big lunch? Amusement park? Just meet up at a convention that's already happening?
C. If I made goodies, what goodies would you like to see? Stickers, buttons and magnets would all be easy enough, anything else?
D. What goodies would you be willing to pay for? Like, I could probably get a buncha stickers printed and be fine money wise, but I couldn't hand out T Shirts unless others helped pay for em. I'm just not that rich. But a group order would make them cheaper.
E. Any other input or ideas?

Heck, I'm not from the East Coast and I'd be interested in something like this.

The only reason I'm doing NE Coast is because this is where I'm stuck rn.

Unless people pooled money for me to get elsewhere, I only can go so many miles on my own bank.

This year I will be out of the country probably all summer, but I would maybe be interested in something like this in the future. Are there any big East Coast conventions that happen over the summer? If so, maybe we could arrange a meetup there. I don't wanna be too ambitious, but maybe there could even be an unofficial TW community panel?

Hm, East Coast U.S. is not anywhere near where I'm at mostly but if the timing works as passing through on the way elsewhere I'd see about a longer layover to meet up.

Or I'd mail out goodies to hand out to folk
(I've been making paper dolls of the NPCs for Diana anyhow and realized... no clue how to get them to her. So I might as well just make more and send them to the meet-up if it happens for you guys to enjoy, instead)

I'd be down for meeting up if this actually becomes a thing. Probably wouldn't be able to contribute craftsy items, but maybe I could bake something?

Although there's a good chance that my appearance would be limited to me waving, throwing cookies to you all, and then making a mad dash for the nearest exit because meeting people is terrifying.

Honestly, nobody else coming would be needing to bring anything. I was just putting out my own ideas of like, to living it up and make it more than just an awkward meetup.

And yeah, meeting people can be scary. Though I've met over 100 of my online friends now (maybe more than that I stopped counting at 100) and I've never had a bad experience, so know that I'd do my best to make sure everyone at the meetup would have a good time.

Yeah, I'm sure it would be fine. Probably.

Since you're organizing, what are your location constraints, and did you have any particular towns/cities in mind? "North East Coast," at least in my geographically challenged understanding, could mean anything from say Maryland to Maine (most of which are generally accessible to me by bus or car, so I don't really have a preference).

I probably can't go past DC in terms of south, since I believe that's the Southest big city I can catch a bus to. And probably no more West than Ohio.

But Cities that would work rEALLY well for me include:
-- Pittsburgh, PA (Moving here in August, so like below if done later.)
-- Baltimore, MD
-- State College, PA (I live here so if everyone invaded here, I would have more money and freedom to make the event bigger. It's just not super easy to get to.)
-- Corning, NY
-- Binghamton, NY
-- Boston, MA
-- New Haven, CT

Other cities that are better but I'm less able to work with:

-- NYC
-- DC
-- Hartford, CT
-- Philly, PA
-- Rochester NY

And then everywhere else is rather like. I could probably get there if it's not too much further, but I don't have free sleeping places there so it'd be a bit harder on my wallet for the event.

All of those are pretty doable from where I live now. At least one of my close friends is in western PA, and I've heard good things about Corning from relatives who've gone there to try the "grape juice." But I'm just one person, so it depends on what our other NE/ USA folks wanna do.

Btw it's kind of funny that you're moving from State College to Pittsburgh. (I mean, I know the Penn State/ Pitt rivalry isn't that big of a deal, but still.)

If I'm traveling, I vote Boston or Pittsburgh, if only because I'd love to travel there and make a whole vacation out of it.
