Olympia, WA meet-up Saturday April 9th,2011


Hello! I would love to organize a meet-up here in Olympia, WA ( about an hour south of Seattle for those who don't live around here).

There is a cute little downtown with lots of shops selling postcards.

Date: Saturday April 9th 1pm

Place: The Urban Onion (restaurant/pub) It's at 216 Legion just a couple doors down from a Starbucks, across from the park. You can get directions on their website too. (see later post)

I look forward to meeting everyone!

I would love to go! I'm about two hours north of Seattle, but I would love to make the trip! Right now I'm not too sure when would be the best, but I'm sure the beginning of April will be great. I just have to discuss it with my husband!

WOW! I wish I still lived in WA! I'd love to go to a meet-up! I've actually considered trying to organize one here in Colorado in conjunction with a local postcard show!

Great, I'm glad some people are interested! April will be perfect. We'll see who else would like to come and pick a date next month or so.

By the way, I'm totally new at this meet- up stuff and the forum. Forgive me if I don't update correctly and stuff- feel free to tell me! ha!

1st two weekends of April would be cool anywhere from the 2nd to the 9th, 10th.



On a side note, I think we should have a National Meet-up somewhere like the other countries do. Washington DC would be cool. We could visit the Smithsonian Postal Museum, as one of the highlights.

And a date is chosen! :0)
Saturday April 9th!!

I will post some different options of where and see what you all think. It will be somewhere in the quaint downtown of Olympia. If you haven't been here, I'm sure you'll like it. Who doesn't love a city where it's FREE to park on Saturday...and tons of spaces! :)

I'm hoping I'll be able to make it!! In fact, I'm planning on it. Does anyone else have kids? If so, will you be bringing them?

I have a one year old daughter, but I'm not planning on bringing her. Either my husband or parents will watch her. Mommy needs a break from time to time. :)

I'm super bummed! :( We're flying to Florida that weekend! The one week out of the year that I'm going on vacation is the one week I want to stay in Washington!!
My mother-in-law did the booking for our vacation with her time share and that is the only week available for the place we wanted.
I hope you all have fun! Maybe you will want to do it again this summer before we move to the South! Or change the date altogether! :P :D :thumbup: Haha

But what do we bring to the meet-up?

From what I've seen of other meet ups, people buy postcards to send, everyone signs the postcards and people can send them as official postcards. I hope that makes sense! :)

I am going to try and make it. I'm new to Washington and still trying to learn where everything is in relation to Everett. Mapquest says its about two hours away but thats not bad. I'm trying to get my roommate involved with postcrossing so hopefully both of us can make it.
