I have been involved in a few discussions around people having a meeting spot to say hi to fellow forum members.

With BF2014 approaching, I thought it might be time to get the ball rolling.

I would be keen to know there was a designated spot that you could go to at a designated time/s to meet other forum members to say hi, have a drink and a chat.

So, I am familiar with the site, but can't quickly put my finger on a spot for this to occur.

Perhaps Peter Noble, you could give us some ideas?!
Or the others interested in this idea and saying hi to people you talk to year in, year out, where do you reckon would be an easy, recognisable spot?
Near the merch' signing and the buskers is an idea, but lots of through traffic all day there.
The big grassy area between where Jambalaya and Crossroads are, against the fence towards the toilets and bar for Crossroads? There was a big mural done near Jambalaya and near where I mean last year?
Near one of the entrances?
In the interview tent or near it, at those tables, near the bar?
I hope these make sense, any other good / better ideas?

I am aware of the Rails meeting before BF starts, but I set up for the week on Wednesday afternoon and usually don't leave, and getting back in after drinks at the Rails would be problematic for me!

Perhaps some ideas for meeting points?
And when would people maybe agree to do it?
Early in the day?
Soon after venue opens each day?

Open to any and all ideas?

Cheers.
Tony

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion man...

And of course, it's your chance to discuss Pearl Jam with me. *cough.

Here...or perhaps at back of Jambalaya (to the left of entrance as you come in)

I had suggested once before to meet on the Friday at 12.00 in the food court at the rear of crossroads..north west corner. but open to suggestions.

maybe the grassed area behind jambalaya each day at a specific time.

I have a court order stating I cannot be within 10 feet of any board members while in public. Sorry guys I'm sure you where all hoping to meet me and hear my truly one of a kind wisdom and genius.

Maybe in a few years when the order is lifted.


Dear Skot,
Are you going to be a goose all your life?

Happy to go wherever, Belongil meetup is also definitely a goer.

Would like to make the rails one as well, but quite often I am pretending to do some work when that is on.

I will have a JazzFest or Nola related T Shirt on most of the time

The tent mahal will be there.

There could be private messages to anyone interested as to how to identify the tent mahal, there will be a visible way, but not disclosing it to just any and every pearl jam fan waiting to come burn it all down.

Shame on you Whistle

Why don't we wear something on our tee shirts,
EG: a safety pin on our right shoulder or something similar,
Or how about a secret sentence like in Maxwell smart that we could
ask random people and if we get no response move on,
We could back this up with a secret handshake only known to members of the forum,

I think I've covered all the bases now,

Well I don’t know if BAMBAMBAM is being serious but I think his ideas are just plain ridiculous. I mean, who would be foolish enough to do all of these things which would make us all look like twits, when the simple solution is developing a “special wink”, That’s right, with one “special wink” you could signal not only an individual but do a whole group in the one hit. Furthmore, you could conceivably cover the whole Bluesfest in one day, providing you don’t get arrested by the drug squad because you’re going to need something on hand for the possible eyestrain. And furthermore, as a by-product, if you get that “special wink” just right, not only will you be able to find fellow posters, you could potentially make a heap of new “non posting” friends. So if you read this Bambambam, that’s how you problem solve.

Glenboss, the Stoned Stranger tried that special wink once, picked up an admirer and couldn't shake HIM.

All this talk about what we should wear has me confused & with that in mind I'm thinking the opposite.
We should all arrive in our birthday suit,easy to spot one another & we would have plenty of opportunity to catchup for a meet & greet in the back of the paddy wagon/cells.
We would have to arrive early to have time to post bail of course.
If some members are a little shy then perhaps we could meet up fully clothed @ the nudie beach near the bf site as we would still stand out in the crowd.
Helium balloons could be attached as an optional extra on whatever part of the body that's convenientAnxious


They got the cocaine, oxycontin, mushrooms, marijuana
Vodka, plastic pop-off, twist one off
Yesterday I smoked, today I don't
Yeah, yeah, yeah

OK, I will be the nude, winking, balloon guy at the byron bay donuts stand.
The balloon will be in the shape of a guitar.
I will write hifromtomorrow on my chest in permanent marker and sprinkle myself with glitter.
I will jump up and down on one leg and bark like a dog every few minutes.
Hopefully someone notices me.
I will make sure to shave down for the best visual experience.
