Canada, Ontario, Ingersoll July 13, 2013 Second Annual Meetup



SAM_0183.JPG - 131kB
Attendees

Ingersoll, Ontario July 13, 2013 1:00 p.m. - whenever we are done!
I am booking as of 12:00 if anyone wants to join us for lunch
Louie's Restaurant Bell St. Ingersoll, Ont.
http://louiespizzapasta.com/ (They have free wifi)

One of the La Petite Adventuristas from Thailand will be at the Meet-up
https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=76199#pid5554542

Activities:
1) Bring your favorite card(s) to show and tell.
If anyone received a card from Japan last year (we did exchange cards with another meet-up) bring them this year to share. I have several to show.
2) I have designed another card (see below) This year it is .30
3) Favorite postcrossing story
4) Cards you want to swap
5) One of our group held a lottery. It was a 10 card lottery for people to get a meet-up card. (We will be collecting the cost of card and postage divided by the number of attendees) Plus we have to send one to the photographer who did the artwork.
6) Bring addresses of people you want to send to
7) Bring a pen as there will be lots of signing. We will signed at least 250 cards this year. We all sign all the cards so people see who came to the meeting.
8) Bring one card for a postcard draw - you will go home with a new one.
9) We are now an International Meeting - We have a postcrosser from Michigan coming.
10) After running low on postcards last year I am suggesting that we send one to each person who comes as a souvenir of the day.
11) Bring a picture of your mailbox (where you get your postcards)

1. LyndaC - Ingersoll, Ontario (20 cards)

I will be in Ottawa in May - We could meet and discuss it then.

Just sign up for Airmiles and buy lots of booze from the liquor store and postcards online through Airmiles store/amazon and you will collect 950 very quickly and you can fly to London and we will pick you up.

Sounds good to me...:bouncing:

I'd totally be up for meeting in May, if I'm around :) I am actually off to Florida for a week, Toronto for five days, and have company from Europe for five days --- so it is a hectic month. But post or IM me when you'll be here, and maybe we can have a 'postcrossing' coffee or something?!

Do you decorate the back of your cards with stickers? Are you interested in swapping/getting stickers at the meet-up? I have TONS of little stickers that my kids really no longer use. (Woohoo!!! Long past toilet training lol!) And surprisingly like my postcard stash it might take a lifetime to go through them.

Please post here or U2U me if you are interested and let me know if there are any themes you might be looking for - chances are we might have it ;)

We have one International signed up for this meet-up and would love to have more. Everyone who is coming from afar - there is a Comfort Inn in Ingersoll plus a posh Hotel - The Elmhurst and lots of inexpensive choices in London if you need to stay over night.

How about a car pool from Toronto? or some visitors from Buffalo?

I am also talking to the place in town that has the retro cards for sale to make sure they have enough - we cleaned them out last time.

Thanks Lynda for the invite! I was looking at the thread the other day when I noticed there was a lack of postcrossing meetups in Canada! I'm Jess, and I'm 19 and I live in Kingston, Ontario. (I may be the youngest one here, but that's ok!)

I'd love to come, the only problem is transport. I don't have a license so I can't drive myself (should have gotten when I turned 16, oops :P ) and unfortunately neither Megabus nor Coach Canada go to London or Hamilton from my city :( There's not much info online, but I can try and see if I could charter a flight from our small airport (if that's possible and if it's affordable), so there's another option!

My family and friends aren't interested in this hobby and wouldn't want to drive 4 hours for "a little meet up" :( If there's anyone coming by Kingston on their way down who wouldn't mind giving me a lift I'd be so appreciative! I can pay gas money of course!

So I guess the long and short of it is I'm a maybe for now. The date works out fine for me, I just need to get there!

I have designed a new card for this year. It is entirely up to you if you use it or not. Last year the cards cost us approximately .30 because we printed up 100. We ran out of cards last year so I need to know approximately how many you each want about a week before the meet-up. The new card design will be in the first post.

I have enough requests to order the first 100 cards. I will go to the printers this week to get some mock-ups made and ask if it would be cheaper to wait for more orders or what price they will give us per 100 ordered.

I am signing up for the meet- up. This looks like fun.
I will also be wanting some of the meet-up cards too. 10 will be okay.
Can anyone suggest a bed/breakfast or cheap, but nice motel/hotel to stay at?

I will do a little research and send you a U2U with the information about the Hotels etc in the neighbourhood.

Last year's printer has retired so I have found a new one and I am waiting for a quote for the postcard.

Is anyone else going to join us for the party? We welcome all and last year we had a lot of fun.
