:) Battle Creek appears to be the best decent sized town/city in the middle. For me having it sometime in the fall would be best. My weekends are booked up until I leave for the summer. How does Battle Creek sound? I've never been there. I'm not originally from here. I only moved to Michigan 4 years ago.

I would love to join you guys. I'm up in Bay City. The fall works best for me, as well. I'm a teacher, but will be gone for a good chunk of the summer for various conferences. Lansing may be another option in the central part of the state. There are bound to be plenty of places there that sell postcards ;)

I don't really care where we meet. I would say about a 2 hour driving limit. I could drive a little more but I don't want to be driving all day for something that is only few hours. It would need to be on a Sunday as I am Seventh-Day Adventist so I take Saturday's as a day of rest.

My concern about a Sunday meet-up would be that we really wouldn't be able to hit the shops, museums and such to buy postcards, as most are closed on Sunday. Downtown Lansing is a ghost town on Sunday. If we do a Sunday meeting, we should bring generic Michigan cards with us from home for writing. For me, though, half the fun of the meet-ups is shopping for cards with fellow postcrossers.

You're right cawindt. I went to Kalamazoo on Sunday and was really excited to purchase some postcards from there. Although I was able to find a few, I knew I could have purchased a lot more if the stores were open!

I'm in Ohio but have family in Michigan and make it north pretty often -- I might be able to do a weekend meet-up. It would be great to meet other Postcrossers!

I would love to meet up with some other postcrossers. But I live in the UP and that's quite far away from where you guys are meeting up.

Was anything ever decided? Did a meet up ever happen? Because I would be very interested. I live in the metro area.

As far as I know, there was never a meet-up. I would still love for one to happen. Who would be interested in Saturday, December 4th? If there's enough interest, we can choose a location based on where people are coming from.

December 4th works for me. Anyone else?

Is this meet-up still happening? I just noticed it listed on Postcrossing's Facebook post. If it is, when and where? I live in NW Indiana, so SW Michigan isn't that far for me.

I don't think it's happening. No one commented about it or sounded interested. At the very least I'm not going.

That's ok...there's a 90% chance of snow tomorrow, so I don't think it would be a good day for a drive. :)
