I have this crazy, wonderful dream that one day we could meet up and spend time together! For example, one year from now, everyone meet at the Marriott in Anaheim. Would anyone be interested in doing this? A group of rooms would be cheaper than staying in various hotels. Thoughts?

It's a really good idea, however may I suggest picking a location more centrally located? For those of us in the middle of the country, and I know there are a lot of peeps in the eastern states, California might be difficult to get to.
I would definitely be interested, I wonder if coordinating time off for everyone is possible?

You have a good point. My goal is end of June 2015. I am think of a Friday night through Sunday morning event. We could do dinner Fri, a crop on Sat and then breakfast on Sun morning. What State would be good?

Denver (I know that's not a state! But you get my point!)

Okay, I see how we're playing this, lol! How about Oklahoma City? It's pretty close to the center of the country

Denver would be awesome, but Texas would be more central? Come on people. I am serious about this. Please let me know what you think. We have a year to plan, but would need to put a deposit down on a hotel in 2-3 months. I am looking for 25-50 scrappers from this site who want to meet up for an awesome, fun filled weekend. If we have more, that would be wonderful!!

And a tad more so for the non-American members!

I am not a traveling scrapper, but wouldn't mind going just for the fun! I would love a trip to Vegas as I've never been.
I wouldn't mind Texas either ( especially if it were somewhere next to water)!!

We all need to vote on a location and then really get busy. I would need several commitee members to help me pull this together. I will fly anywhere in the US. I want to be considerate of all others and what would motivate them to come. I think a lot of people would build a vacation around this weekend. Let's take the month of June and really get members here to consider doing the event. In July, we will decide on a committee. In August, we need to put a deposit down on a hotel. The more rooms we have, the cheaper it's going to be.

The scrapping event on Saturday night would be just one of the items to vote on. It would be hard to travel with scrap supplies, but I have a CM weekender tote that I could bring. It's up to everyone. We would all plan the event.

I'd be interested if it was somewhere central. Especially Denver! I lived there for years and am always looking for excuses to visit old friends!
