'Official' meetups for 2016?

Going to a park and want to meet up with other members of this site. Feel free to post where you will be going!

We've tried many many times before, but I think the reason they never(fully) work out is that they're planned so soon. If we have multiple meetups, planned in advance, and keep track of everything, then we might be able to actually meet up. So, any ideas? I think Opening Day is a given. So, any other ideas?

We did have a mini-meetup in 2011 on Iron Wolf's last day.

I want to apologize for being over excited and hyper. I've toned down since then.

It's pretty hard for me to get to the park on a specific day, most of my trips are last minute. I can never make it out for Opening Day, but I'm 90% sure I'll be at Advocate Day. That's really the only day I know I'm going to as of now.

I usually make it to Opening Day but will be down South for Spring Break. Might go the Sunday after though.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P

As opening day is this weekend thought I would strike up this post.

Like I said, I'll only be there for an hour or two on Saturday, but should stay quite a bit on Sunday.

I think the next meetup should be an ERT-based one, like the Discover Card one(s)?

Since this is the official topic, I thought it would be appropriate to put it here.

Me, Guy_With_A_Stick, and Coaster Justin want to have a SFGAmWorld Park Meet sometime in Fright Fest.

Maybe we can have one of those trivia contests like the Iron Wolf one on Labor Day 2011?

This is a bit far-fetched, but maybe we could all get SFGAmWorld T-Shirts with our usernames on them?

Anyways, let's try to work out a date that works well for everyone.

That sounds really cool, but I live north of Milwaukee and I doubt one of my parents would just drive me down w/o going with someone I knew (friend or whatever). Have fun!

I don't know if we can go as far as to have custom T-Shirts, but even just a normal meetup where we all ride stuff together would be a great time in my book. Personally, I'm thinking one of the last days of September, 24th, 25th, or 30th? Those are all weekends at the start of Fright Fest, which is usually not that crowded. I think it'd be a perfect time to go in my opinion. Anyone else?

I meet up with Guy with a Stick occasionally. Personally, I don't really know when I'm going to SFGAm until last minute most of the time, so it's hard to commit ahead of time.

I say if a ride is being removed at the end of the season, we meet up on that day.

Like if Revolution or Buccaneer Battle were to close on Labor Day, we'd meet up that day.


If not, maybe sometime during Fright Fest.

I'm thinking late September. 24th or 25th, specifically. Anyone else interested?

Well, now there might actually be a ride closure (Or 2) tomorrow.

If this is confirmed by the park, do you guys want to meet-up tomorrow?

None of the park's Social Media says anything, nor does the website, but I am going to try to go tomorrow to attend the Sour Power ERT. If anyone else is going, I'm up to meet up.

So, is anyone interested in going to a Fright Fest Meetup? I'm thinking Sunday the 25th of September. I want to see how many people would consider going before making any official arrangements. So if you would like to attend a meetup sometime early Fright Fest, please respond.

How about we meet up closing day. It's November 8th, so it'll likely not be busy at all.

I'll be there on closing day with a one or more friends. If I'm with my one friend then I would be willing to meet up, but if I'm with more then no . Also I'll be going on the 24th and would be willing to meet up that day as well.

I'd say a much more centeral location like the Hometown Gazebo plaza.

Maybe something less "Out in the open" to avoid cluster. Next to Maw and Paw's/Spacely's (Goliath Meet-Up)
