So Moxxie and I were talking on the way back from the most recent Minneapolis meetup about future meetups. We thought it would be really cool to host one in Indy. We have a HUGE house with plenty of room for people to stay with us if they wanted. Plus a some of great things to do in town as well! We are only a 10 minute drive from downtown. We live near public transportation, and several independent restaurants and coffee houses.
If we are going to do this we would probably be trying to aim for around October.
I just wanted to throw this out there so that if people are interested we can start solidifying things early so we can plan things easier. I know its early to commit to anything, but if you have interest let us know :).

Solidified dates and such:

Location: Indianapolis Indiana (JJ and Mox Home)
Dates: October 28-30th (31st for the stragglers :P )
Contact: JJ - josiah.jensen(at)gmail.com
Moxxie - rubyscarlet2342(at)gmail.com

Flights look cheap... I do have stuff going on in October that might be hard to schedule around, but I'll come if possible :)

My, we're certainly planning ahead-- I guess this means we can't wait(s) to see each other again!
Sounds like a great idea-- Cleveland and Indy aren't so very far apart. I will certainly do my best to be there!

yeah the reason its so far ahead is because our attic/upstairs is only usable fall and winter, its finished and pretty nice for sleeping but its just too hot during the summer months. So yeah we don't need/expect anything confirmed this early, but thought it wouldn't hurt to put it out there since we definitely want to do something :) Our neighborhood is the best neighborhood in Indy around Halloween, there's festivals and Edgar Allen Poe poetry readings, and Ghost stories at the little park by our house, haunted house walking tours, and stuff like that. Its similar every year and starts in October so I can check it all out this year.

This is sounding like a good time!
I wonder if we plan early enough, and Tom gets wind of it, and he packs a suitcase, and he brings a guitar. I wonder.

More like a old car engine on a rope and a hammer than a guitar, I presume!

October 2011, huh? That's way too far ahead of now for me to know for sure, but if I'm no farther away than Texas when it happens, I'll definitely try to come ... if I AM farther away, then I'll be there in spirit, at least. It sounds like a great time already.

No, you're INA, you silly girl!

Yes, I can show you the difference between the "classic" zombie walk and the "contemporary" zombie walk. Also, how to make proper zombie growls and groans. Also offering a short course: "Things to do while Waiting for your Scenes to be Shot." Available for .0005 credit or may be audited.
