Pakistan, Lahore, 24 June 2013


COUNTRY: PAKISTAN
CITY/REGION: LAHORE/ PUNJAB

TIME: 9 AM - 11 AM
LOCATION: Dharampura, Lahore


Dear Postcrossers and Mods!
Hello!
I hope and pray that all of you are fine and happy.

I am a postcrosser for some time but am new here in the forum.

Recently I thought of having a postcrossing meet up in Pakistan. It has never happened before I believe. I want to give a boost to Postcrossing in Pakistan because of the following stats:-


    Pakistan's Population : 180 Million +++ (184,404,791 as per postcrossing stats)
    Registered Postcrossers : 65 ONLY
    Active Postcrossers : Not more than 15-20
    Postcards Sent : 2243 ONLY

What a pity! :rolleyes:

First of all, I would request the Mods to make a Sub-Forum for Pakistan's Meet-up. It isn't even there :(

Secondly, I would be glad if you (Postcrossers) could give some guidelines for arranging the meet-up? :)

And thirdly I would be glad if someone could tell me what needs to be done at a standard Postcrossing Meet-up?

And Fourthly, the big question, Who all would like to receive a postcard from the first-ever Pakistan Postcrossing Meet-Up???? 3 Postcards will be sent to the winners of the lottery arranged in the lottery section of the forum. Please visit here: https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=80456 :D

Since 7 of the Top 10 Members (Excluding Myself :( ) are from the great city of Lahore, so I would recommend Lahore to be the venue of the 1st Postcrossing Meet-Up. Any variations???

I will also be there in Lahore for a couple of days in 3rd or 4th week of June. So let's finalize the date too!!!

And venue is still to be decided too :( Any suggestions

Waiting anxiously for your kind response
Best Regards
Yours Cheema

UPDATE:
This update should have been posted some time ago but I did not think of posting it earlier :(

After a friend's advise, here it is :)

1st Ever Pakistan Postcrossing Meet-Up was held on 24 Jun 2013 in Lahore at Mr Hafeez's place. Because of some commitments of a couple of friends, we were the only two present at the meet-up. It seemed less but not bad for a start.

The time we spent together sharing postcards and other collectibles was simply PRICELESS!

I hope that we will have a few more members at the next meet-up :)

Stay tuned till then!

The first meet-up is the hardest to organize - Your lottery was a big success and I think your next meet-up will be even better.
