I've noticed a very disturbing lack of Newgrounds Meet Ups as of late. I blame @Luis for getting a real job or whatever. Anyway, I wanted to see if there was any interest in having a meet up in the dirty south known as the ATL this year. If there is enough then ill make it official, but here is the nitty gritty.

WHEN?

July 17-19

School should be out for most people and there is nothing better then Georgia in the summer time.

WHERE?

... Atlanta... Can't you read? Mainly, however, the happenings will be in the downtown area around:
Centennial Olympic Park

There is great food, the World of Coke, CNN center, Aquarium, and a bunch of things. That would probably be the Saturday event and we can bounce to Underground Atlanta for Friday or Saturday night.

Atlanta has a trolly now... so we cool.

WHAT?

Hang out with strangers from the internet. It is usually a lot more fun than it sounds on paper.

QUESTIONS/THOUGHTS?

So you in or out? How solid are you in your decision? I wanted to get this going early so people can plan around their lives and such.

Just to get you excited, here are some previous people to attend previous ATL meets:
@Luis
@Jonas
@brycemilburn
@nathanielmilburn
@nogfish
@stupor

no guarantee any of these people show up again, ever.

Maybe some more people came, I dunno its been awhile since the last one.

Why announce this 7 months in advance?

Additionally, I feel like these meets are aimed at the veterans and not the new kids.

I was a new kid at my first meet and got to meet a lot of veterans. I recommend these things for all members young and old.

I went to the last Atlanta NG meetup. It was my first meetup and it was pretty cool meeting everyone.

As a local, let me advise that while the ATL attractions listed above are pretty cool, some of them (Aquarium) are a little expensive. Depends on how much you want to spend, really - the Aquarium is worth the price. Atlanta Underground is a little bit "ghetto" now and sort of underwhelming. But, there is a bar on the trolley route called Joystick which has lots of classic arcade games.

Just a few things to think about. I can try to offer some other ideas from a local perspective.

Atlanta is much closer to south Florida. It seems the meets up are coming closer and closer.

Man, when did I last go to the ATL meetup? Six years ago?

Count me in as definitely interested. I attended the last one too young to drive, and now I'm old enough to bar crawl. Let's do it!


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!", we would cry. Thousands were killed.

Thanks, I know the aquarium is a little pricey, but thought I'd mention it, and when want underground ghetto? I never heard of joystick so I am more than willing to check it out. The party places aren't set in stone yet, I was just wanting to keep everything centralized because Atlanta can hey spread out. Anyway, you in?

@stupor glad you're in!

I'm still a young ass 14 year old. I'd go if I wasn't binded by special parental rules.

Besides, I live on an island in Asia. It'll be pretty hard for me to get to Georgia from here.

People have lives and need to plan for things.

But planning this far ahead in the future is pretty far fetched, don't you think?

I really want to attend this event. It will take some major traveling.
