TOMORROW! USA | Baltimore, MD area | October 18, 2014 | Stevenson


Ready for a second Baltimore Meet-Up? Come to the Stone Mill Cafe in Stevenson: they refurbished their interior, and now there is also a play-space for children upstairs. LOVE the tupelo honey granola cookie/clusters and the lemonade!

See you in October!

Pax et bonum,

Carol Thelen

I agree with Michaela, who suggests we skip the first week of October......and it will allow attendees to "save up" their new "officials" a little longer if they want to send to "officials"...

Pax et bonum,

Carol

I'd love to see everyone again. We have a family wedding to go to the weekend of Oct. 25/26 in Salem, Massachusetts, but otherwise, as of now, my calendar is clear for the rest of the month. (Salem one week before Halloween - how neat is that?!).

I think the 11th or 18th would be awesome. The post office near the little cafe will be open (if we decide on having the meet-up there, that is).

I would love to meet up again. I'm away the weekend of October 11, but otherwise around. If the choice is that weekend or the next, then I'd vote for the 18th/19th. Stevenson is fine with me.

Mood: First Day of Autumn!

[*] posted on 11-9-2014 at 02:33 AM


The 11th would work, I guess if I asked my mom (we have a trip to PA planned for October 18). It's kind of far (Exit 21) because I live near Exit 9 on I-695. Do I have to send postcards from the meetup or can I just share my official postcards with people? Is it possible not to mention the forum at all during the meetup and just stick to the official website only?

P.S. My optimal time would be after noon lol if that is fine with everyone. :P

Yes, I'd love to get together again! Sundays are better for me than the Saturdays.

USA | Baltimore, MD area | October 18 2014 | Stevenson Stone Mill Cafe


Let's meet at 11 a.m. on Sat., Oct. 18. UPSTAIRS at

Stone Mill Bakery Cafe
10423 Stevenson Road
Pikesville, MD 21153
Ph: 443-660-7390

(Stone Mill Bakery is closed on Sundays, I forgot until now.)

The adjacent post office closes at noon, plan for that if you need stamps.

Bring two postcards to swap in grab-bag fashion.

Bring a few of your favorite postcards to show-n-tell.

In answer to Dragon27's question:

If you want to send postcards from the swap, everyone will be happy to sign the cards. Last year one member even made some commemorative Meet-Up stickers. I recommend you send at least one postcard from the Meet-Up...Send it to yourself!

You may also want to "save up" your allowance for "official" Postcrossing cards, then right before meet-up, request some addresses from Postcrossing. Or, you could send postcards to pen-pals. To make your day smoother, you could pre-address some cards to send, or at least pre-address some stickers to bring that day.

To everyone: Please let me know how many Baltimore postcards you'd like to have for $0.25 each, and I will try to bring them for you.

To anyone: If you'd like to design & print a Baltimore Meet-Up 2014 card, I am sure many of us would like to pitch in on the cost and receive some.

To anyone: If you'd like to design & print a Baltimore Meet-Up 2014 small sticker, , I am sure many of us would like to pitch in on the cost and receive some.

Post here on the forum if you can design & print!

Pax et bonum,

Carol

Sorry I could not avoid the 10/18 date, it's the only one I can "conduct."

BTW, the location is sort of on the way to Pennsylvania...it's a short and lovely drive from Stevenson to I-83.

If it helps at all, I could pick someone up at the Reisterstown Plaza stop on the Balto Metro...or at the Mt Washington or Falls Rd stops on the Balto Light Rail...

Pax,

Carol

I probably can't make it. My son is in a district-wide orchestra competition that day. We haven't yet received the times that his two orchestras will be scheduled to play. If they're both very early in the morning or very late in the day, maybe I'll still be able to show up.

Carpool from Northern VA?


Is there anyone going to this meet-up from Northern VA? I live near Quantico and would love to share a ride (I can drive) if possible.
