Youmacon 2012 Forum Meet-up

Postby WiccanWing » Thu Mar 01, 2012 2:55 pm

So I've been trying to find people/friends willing to meet up at Youmacon in November.
Also, is there a 2 day pass.. as in Friday + Saturday?

There are no two day passes. I am of course up for doing a Meet-Up at the convention. (I was the one hosting Meet-Ups last year.) Keep in mind that right now it's so early that a lot of people aren't likely even visiting the forums yet. They'll get a /lot/ more active closer to the convention.

One of the potential issues with doing a Meet-Up in public space (which is how I did it and what I would recommend doing) is to have some way of identifying who is actually there for the Meet-Up. For 2011 I printed up a table tent style sign to use. (Non-convention Meet-Ups are easier to do this way, people can just wear their Youmacon badges.)

Another potential obstacle will be the timing. Not everyone will be at the convention all 4 days, and people will be doing all sorts of different things so it can be hard to find times for people to get together. (I tried doing two Meet-Ups last year, one Thursday night, when there was not a lot of stuff going on, and one on Sunday when there wasn't much going on that I was interested in. Nobody really showed up to the one on Sunday.)

Planning exactly when to do an at-con meet-up would probably have to be done after the schedule comes out. (Which likely won't be till near the end of October.) Until the schedule is out we won't know what we'll be doing when. Historically speaking, Thursday night/early Friday morning is usually a good time for something like this as it has the least amount of stuff going on. But not everyone will be there Thursday. Late at night/really early morning there may not be as much stuff going on, but some of the stuff that does go on (like the dances) are big events.

If the topic creator doesn't end up doing one at the convention, I might try doing it again. (Or might try doing one or more additional meet-ups even if he does.) On the one hand, Thursday night is a good night to do stuff like this as there is relatively little programming going on, so less to conflict with. On the other hand, a lot of people won't likely be there yet.

I think it's a great idea as well, this will be my second time attending and would be nice chatting with other like minded individuals.

I figure it's time to revive this thread now that the schedules are out. Does anyone have any preferences on times to do a meet-up? For me I've got time late night/early mornings, Friday morning, most of Sunday, and am toying with the idea of trying to do a meet-up at the cosplay PJ party.
