Grand Concourse is in the Bronx and is reachable by the 2, 4 or 5 trains. We're meeting over at Grand Central, not there.

My train will be dropping me at Penn station. Cymbal and I have it worked out though.

What time will we actually be meeting?

Try to arrive no later than 1:30 in front of the defunct ticket counters inside Grand Central's main concourse, and no earlier than 10 AM or so. Everyone who went to the meet last year knows exactly what I'm talking about. If you don't, they're not too hard to find. You should first notice that there are two sides of ticket counters--one side is active and the other is closed off and doesn't have any ticket agents serving customers. You should also look out for an NG poster, people wearing NG shirts or recognizable NGers like me so you're certain that you're in the right place.

Well Fuck. Sounds like I'll have to arrive a day early. The earliest train won't arrive til 3:30.
And I don't think cymbal gets off til 5pm. This is a sort of conundrum we are in aren't we? Unless one of you guys can pick me up. Or I can just not be a cheap bastard and shell out some of the ridiculous amounts of cash I have in my bank accounts for a taxi.

The schedule I posted pertains to Saturday only. Plenty of people I'm sure will arrive on Friday. As for Symbol, I think he started a new job at Con Ed this month but I don't know his new work schedule. For his last job, I know he worked from 10 to 7 on Saturdays. He may be off Saturday entirely this time. Ask him for more details.

Gory, bring your megaphone again. also, I think we should do something while we're there to entertain the public aswell as ourselves. something really obnoxious. and we must film it.

any ideas? the 6 dicks in a row thing sounds like a good possibility until they make us turn it off.

I know symbol requested it and Gory supplied it but I'm right on the edge of whether or not I'll be able to attend (my parents and old school friends being a major part of my probably going).

I'm asking for a list of "definitely goings". Is there one?

I wanna go so bad.

Yeah, the names you see on the hub page are all "definitely" people--well, since it was last updated anyway. Luis told me to ignore the maybes when sending him names for the hub page and I did just that.

Also, Danny, no...not a good idea. I don't want my megaphone misused like that and then have it confiscated by the MTA Police, NYPD or Grand Central staff. We were lucky enough that it didn't happen last time. I want to make it clear that megaphones are intended to be used as tools, not toys, and most people are probably not going to be amused by the obnoxious antics that you may have on your mind.

Im gonna clean that list up, next week and also populate that page with more concrete things planned. I think that based on past experience, Id recommend just making a mini gathering on friday evening, and then just the main event on sat. afternoon/evening. If there happen to be people around all day friday, then they can figure out what to do. I think leaving people to their own vices and just concentrating events to particular chunks of time makes it easier for people to plan around. People who have jobs and shit can take care of their duties (lol i said duty, kinda sounds like doo doo), and also people who are new to the city can just kinda explore.

This is gory's thing though, so ill go with whatever he decides to do. I'll probably show up friday evening, and then head back on sunday late morning.

I really want to go to this, but the problem is I can't drive and I may need a ride. I'm from Woodbury, New York, so if anyone lives near there and is going, can you please contact me about possibly supplying me a ride.

Would like to go, but unfortunately across the city in dreary F-Bomb City.

I actually do hope you guys have fun. I remember last time you guys had the NG meet-up it rained three freakin' inches that whole day in NYC. *_*

Turns out that my finances are seemingly lower than they typically are due to my being 21 at the time and having big plans and all. The only way I'll be going as of now is if I hit it big in AC the week before. Sorry. I had a lot of fun last year and I wish I could go again. If my situation changes, I'll let you all know.

Looks like shauna can go now. ;)

Sounds good to me. As long as I know we're all still DTF then I'm definitely in.

I'll help bump the thread by saying that this is the best comment made so far. DTF.
