So... what happens at a meet-up? I have never been around for a big one (all of SG) or a regional one. Does everyone bring their laptops and scrap? Does anyone scrap at all - or just play?

;-) Curiously,
Cindy


Laptops, cameras, comfy clothes.

We get a meeting room at our hotel and sit around the table. Somehow, all these lovely snacks just sort of appear. Hotel provides breakfast and we either go out for lunch or order in. Usually go out for dinner. We scrap, we chat, we scrap, we chat. Usually on Sat morning we plan an outing to a site for photos and maybe a little shopping. Enough people drive and have vans and such transportation is never a problem. Its all very casual. There's plenty of time to play and scrap. We share ideas, but there are no formal classes like we had at the conventions.

That sums it up. Lots of fun. Talking and scrapping and talking and scrapping...and laughing and more laughing. I always feel like we look like a bunch of geeks...all around tables with cords flying...laptops and mice and ehds OH MY!!

Yep, geek get-together extraordinaire! :) LOL...oh yeah, and plenty of LOLing and occasionally ROFLing!
And sometimes, we actually scrapbook too! Hahahaha!
BetC, can't wait to meet you! Sounds like a busy and very fun month for you! Congrats to your DGS!
