LANCASTER SESSION I&II
We (meaning me, Yulia, and several others) would like to start having regular reunions in NYC on the second Saturday of each month. Not only would this keep CTY withdrawal to a minimum, but it'll give out-of-towners the chance to schedule to be at at least one New York reunion. Thoughts?
Me (Max) thinks thinks we should change it around a bit. It's hard enough for me to come to NY (as in, I can't), and it's pretty much the same distance from NJ. And then there's the DC and VA people *shudders*. I say we change the place around each time. But the times are fine.
Me thinks that this is an eminently sensible idea. The way I see it, the great majority of the Lancaster community, besides a few outliers on the west coast, essentially is concentrated into four clusters: New York/Conneticuit (sic)/Long Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia/Maryland/D.C (or Virgyland, D.C.). As such, if we want to hold regular reunions, we could maximize attendence by rotating the location from NYC to DC to (Philly? Newark? or perhaps some middle ground?). This is all well and good, but before we schedule anything we need to able to answer three important questions: How will we get there and back, What will we do, and Where will we stay?
For now, I believe we can table the second question as it can be individually addressed at each reunion. The first is the major obstacle; however, Apex Bus offers service between NYC, DC and Trenton, and there's always the slightly more expensive Amtrak. As to the third question, it's unlikely we can find parents that are willing to take on several CTYers for a night, and then get all of them on the way home. What's more probable is a situation in which several houses will absorb a few CTYers each.
Personally, I don't think my parents would mind one or two sleepovers every once in a while. Does anybody else think they could swing something of this nature?
Rips says that my parents will be totally chill with a bunch of people sleeping over every once in a while. Im in central jersey, fyi. The every second Saturday idea is fantastic, props to yulia &several others. I think we should do those, and also seperate reunions on the first & third/fourth in places other then NYC. we could always think of times square, then have everyone donate like five buck, go out, and buy cold cuts and bread and drinks and have a big picnic?
if someone has an outdoor projector that'd be cool to rig up.
Ariel thinks this is brilliant. I'm organizing something in NYC for around Labor Day this year, just a day thing, but the Second Saturday scheme would be AWESOME. I could host something in CT occasionally (I have lots of floor space for sleeping bags) if anybody wants to hang in New Haven or go to ConnectiCon next year before session 2
Laney has been conspiring with Will Steinberg to hold a MASSIVE sleepover reunion at her house. It is roughly exactly between NYC and DC (about three hours from both) and maybe two hours from Princeton. This reunion would be held over Christmas break (but not actual Christmas, don't worry) and might even last TWO NIGHTS. This has been in the works a long time, ever since Greg and I wandered around figuring out how many CTYers we could fit into each room of my house during Intersession last year. The reunion would include first- and second-sessioners, as I am friends with both. This is no time for modesty: my house is quite large. It can fit y'all. PLEASE CONSIDER IT.
OH YEAH AND I ALMOST FORGOT, there are trains to a station five minutes from my house (Middletown) from New York and Philly.
Wendy (in reference to Max's comment) thinks different reunion locations would be great. I recommend Philadelphia because it is very close to all the NJers, the MD/DC/VA kids can get there with relative ease, as well as the NYers. Oh, and not to mention us who live in PA. With different locations, we would probably get a wider variety of people at the reunions, which is great because sometimes people can't always go to NYC.
