It has been discussed many times through the years with Matt and Sixty and some other people on the board and in the game I consider friends that some day we should try a meet up. Somewhere central to everyone (not suggesting that on purpose since I'm "out in the middle") where we get a nice hotel and we all pitch in for a suite to game in. Bring our paper, pc's and laptops, meet each other, game and enjoy.
It never happened and now I'm really wishing A: it would have and B: it still can.
Biggest issue of course is not all of you are in The States. That was one of the issues then also as Garren, Carstain and a couple others were on the other side of the pond and Fel was down in Brazil and it would be an issue now but I'd like to keep the hope alive that we can pull this off one of these days.
Everyone can pray, think positive thoughts and even sacrifice goats for me to win the Lottery as I would take care of all the travel and lodging expenses myself.
Anyway, it's an idea that seems even more relevant to me today. I've said it many times and I'll say it again that you guys and gals and this game helped keep me possible suicide when I was in my paralysis and pain. I make no joke about that. I was in bad mental shape and nothing I took eliviated all the pain but you all kept my spirits up and gave me something to look forward to everyday and the game helped keep my brain as sharp as it could be on those opioids and anti seizure meds they gave me for neuropathic pain.
Would love to have some beers and smoke with you all before it's too late.

I second that! There will be a time and a place, just live in hope that as many of us that call here home are still around to make it! SD

The logistics of it are just impossible, I would think. For starters, I don't even know where most of you guys are. I'm Chicagoland.

The logistics have always been the issue. A lot of us are in Europe, some in the UK, some in South America.
Hakeem was in New Foundland, Sixty is in LA, Kryder is on the west coast also. I'm in St. Louis... well, Edwardsville, Il. really.
It's still a thought I hang onto. I know I'll never win lotto money but getting everyone together would be on my list of things to do if I did.

I've run things like this is the past. The biggest success we ever had was when it was in a fun destination like Vegas. Lots of people showed up for that.

I think if we all went on a cruise together, that would be awesome, but it's super unrealistic.
