HI EVERYBODY!

Acen is a few months away and its almost about time to do the annual 2007 ACen Meet N Greet!

The Meet N Greet is a great way to meet our forum friends and just friends in general! I know I went to the one last year and I made tons of friends who I still to this day keep in touch with.

Usually the meet up is held at the hotel on Thursday at 9:00 pm by the fountain by the Northeast corner on the 2nd floor the day before ACen starts(I think thats right if not let me know).

I look forward to seeing you all Thursday night and dont forget to mention your forum name! I know I did and I must have got glomped 10 times. So come all forum Newbies, Vetrans, Ninjas, Daimyos and whatever forum rank you are and join us!

I think it's also possible to use this thread as a place to introduce the people who are newbs and for sure goers. I am pretty new at this forums. So my name is Jason Wong and I hope to make most of ur aquaintences at acen, misc. gatherings, and within the forums. =D

That wasn't a riddle. I'm being serious. but if you managed to answer it, you get a cookie either way.

Exactly. Its a great way for everyone to totally get together and just have a great time knowing each other. I know when I went last year, I knew my forum friends but never the actual person. When I got there, I met Lua, Coollead, Roxy, Astra, Amunet, Scottaconda, Give Up The Ghost and many more! Im still friends with them to this day!

It really is a great opportunity and who knows, you may get to hang out with your new friends and may end up being the best of buddies!

UPDATE!!!
The meetup will take place on Thursday May 10th @ 9:00pm at the famous landmark the BROWN STATUE at the Hyatt! For some who dont know what it is, its that really tall statue that looks either like a giant turd or a Baby Ruth bar!

Aww...it sounds fun, but I won't be able to make it. I'm 13, so there's no way I'd be able to get down to Rosemont on a Thursday night, let alone at 9:00 PM. Hopefully, I'll see some of you at the convention.

I'll arrive sometime Thursday so I'll be there again. I shouldn't be hard to spot if my cosplay is finished. I'll be the guy crossplaying as Lum so look for the tiger-striped bikini.

I had lotsa fun last year & got to meet quite a few from the forums.

Sadly won't be attending ACen 2012. So I'll be taking my cosplay up a notch for 2013.

I'll try to make it. I wasn't planning on arriving Thursday, but I'll see what I can do.

I will (most likely) be dressed as Lain in her bear pajamas and that's all. She's the only one I'm cosplaying this year.

My real name is Milla. Aaand I'm pretty shy and quiet so I won't be very talkative at first if I do go. But it would be nice to meet some new friends and have somebody to walk around with.
