Hey all, sorry for a bit of spam... BUT I want to reach as many people as possible! Here goes.
(I've also posted this to my vox - tokyo707.vox.com - and my own lj - and facebook. OTZ )
There has been some discussion about organzing a fan-meetup for those of us in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA area... And it looks like we're maybe nailing some details down. SO.
We're looking to see how many people we can get to go to the Como Park Lantern Festival. It's $5 for admission... not free but definitely on the cheap side... so here's some more info!
It starts at 3:00 pm, and admission is $5 (does that work for everyone?)
Should we meet around 3:00? 3:30? 4:00? It goes until dusk and you may stay as long or as little as you'd like... is there a time that works best for everyone? 5:00 maybe?

If anybody really, really needs a ride and lives not too far from the city (sorry... can't drive to Maple Grove or anything... it's a bit far... orz) please let me know! I want as any people as possible to make it so I'll do my best to help you out.
I think maybe it would be easiest to meet up at the visitor's center at an appointed time... I'll get there a little early and I'll have a Sho uchiwa so you can all recognize me. :3 (yeah... I guess I don't really mind embarassing myself. |D )
Please respond to this and give me your feedback for what you are able to meet at!!
I'm hoping to see up to ten fans there. :3 I know it's not a lot, but for one city in the Midwest... I think it's good enough for now! ;3 Besides, I have yet to truly flail irl with even one fan, so I really think it will be exciting!! No matter what. Fandom is love, numbers aren't that important!.
Also, if you can't go to the lantern festival but you want to get together for flailing sometime over coffee or whatnot, leave a comment or message me! Either on LJ or at firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll see if we can nail down some plans for that~ I know there were several people who said they wanted to do a meetup but couldn't make it to the lantern festival.
...I think that's it for now.
Peace, Love, & Arashi
