Hi Meet-uppies ;)

do you know that there's a Meet-up RR?

https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=47379

We always look for new groups - so if somebody wants to write some cards from your meet-up for our Round Robin, we would be more than happy.

Just have a look - you are always welcome :love:

Thank you :)

Will you be coming into Portland? I live downtown and it would be easier for me to meet you in the city rather than at the transit center? Thanks.

I just want to add that the meet up location it can be changed. I only said that location because i had found a little shop that some might like to see, I walk a lot and so I always get many different postcards to send, I keep a shoe box full of postcards to trade.

Bummer- I will actually be in Portland from Wednesday evening 8-24 through the weekend for a trade show at the convention center. I would be happy to meet up with anyone who can make it- or may be willing to change their plans for anytime after 5PM or later

I lived in Salem for 12 years and know Portland fairly well. I will be coming from Jerome, ID (Twin Falls area)

Wednesday work for me much much better!

I'm available after 2pm... and can stay as late as needed :)

Also downtown area is work very well, since I'm from east Portland. and not very familiar with west side aka Beaverton.

As I will be staying near the convention center from Wednesday on
Here are a couple of suggestions-
The convention center has a nice lobby area and even though there is a trade show happening- you don't have to be involved with the show to get in.

My hotel may have a small lobby or meeting room availble.

If the convention center is not good I can meet where it makes sense for everyone else.

Carlina- If it gets late I can drive you back across the bridge- no big deal.

The convention center is a good place and Max drops off right there for those who will use it. I look forward to meeting you all.

I am rather new at Post Crossing as having been a part of it for a few months. I guess I'm still learning my way. For trading matrial, Should I be bringing new or post cards I have received and are willing to depart with. My supply of new is limited. I always look for opportunities to go into visitors centers when I pass them. I have been able to collect up some very unsual cards that way.

anesskina- Do you collect anything?

you need to bring mint postcards, to sign if not there's some shops in the area,
if you don't have much I have plenty, I am doing the meet up RR, which if any one was to join can pick how many you are willing to send, and you will get same amount of cards.

I myself could never give any of my official cards, even the ones that I don't like.

If you have another hobbie, we encourage you to bring for sharing

Stupid question of the week- what is RR

I have bought many more cards and should now have plenty to exchange.

Portland or bust!

oredave - I collect touristy looking postcards from all over the world. Anything that has city or country name on card.

RR - is Round Robin - usually you and other people decide on theme and exchange addresses, for example if I'm doing RR for city view, and have 5 postcards to send to 5 different people - they send me one card each city view card too. End results - I sent 5 cards and received 5 cards, all other people send 1 and received 1.


carlina84lora - I'm interested to sing and send cards, do you have a list of addresses? Can I bring some too?

I did get some Portland or Oregon postcards recently. Should be plenty.

Did we decide on time for meeting?
