Phoenix-metro meet up 3: Revolutions.
A lot of us, including myself, havent been able to make it one, or both of the last two meet ups. It seems to me, like that been mostly because 1) the meet ups have been mostly over 21 and 2) the meet ups have been on saturday nights, when some people have obligations.
What are some ideas of what we could do? Once we have a place/event we want to go to Ill start up an online poll for the best time and day.
EDIT: Okay, so it seems like the two big ideas are bowling, my house (perhaps with the addition of bowling), and a brewery, which excludes people under 21. I just want to get an idea of how many people approve of each idea. So lets do an voting system like how fauxpasgrapher did it last time. Ive made two comments for each idea, please upvote your preference. And then we can worry about when the event is going to happen afterwards.
EDIT 2: I am very confused that bowling is both the top and bottom comment in this thread. So what I am going to do is host a reddit meet up house party that I dont think conflicts with anyone's desire to go bowling.
Here is a link to an online poll. http://doodle.com/mkw5kdy8xw7qsr6z Just put in your name, and then check the times that would work for you, and in maybe like 3 or 4 days we will see what time/day works best for everyone. The days are the tuesdays and thursdays of each week staring the 29th of june, and ending on the 19th of august. The times are in thirty minute intervals between 630 and 8. I dont know when people like to go bowling, or how to organize a bowling event. If we want to go bowling before coming to my house, when would you guys want to show up and start bowling? Does anyone have any insights about bowling, or would volunteer to reserve a lane or whatever is necassary?
What do you guys think? Does this plan sound good?
Its confirmed! Thursday the 12th, at my house, come between 7 and 7:30 pm, and bring whatever youd like (food, booze, board or video games (my room mates and I collectively have an xbox 360, a Wii, a PS2, a sega saturn, and a dreamcast)). If you are going to bring booze please remember that I am inviting people under 21 years old. Think about how and if you are going to distribute that alcohol, and maybe talk to me about it first if you arent sure.
It was a three way tie of availability between the 10th, the 12th, and the 17th, so I know a lot of people will get excluded. But, we seem to be doing these meet ups at a rate of 1 per month. For those of you who wont be able to make it, Im sure there will be more opportunities in the future.

Phoenix-Metro Meetup 2: The Reckoning (7/10/2010)
With such a good showing last time, I feel like this one can be crowd sourced, taking the pressure off me :)
I leave the floor open to ideas from anyone, however those who attended last time get to vote.
Voting will take place here starting Tuesday and ending firmly on Wednesday night Please keep in mind that this will also be the AZ-Reddit farewell to Nerdtaco who will be moving on to go fix RADARs for the Navy.
