Official California Potluck Logisitics Thread (PLEASE READ)

Hi everyone,

As co-chair of the invitation committee for the 2009 California Potluck (aka Sconefest) I need the following info from everyone interested in attending:

Would you be available to attend on August 8th, 2009?
If not, when would you be available?  Be as specific as possible and limit yourself to August, please.

I know that it's a year away, but we need to start gauging level of interest and commitment now in order to plan effectively.  Otherwise, next summer will roll around and no one will know what's going on.  Just trying to prevent mass chaos/anarchy/tears/hurt feelings/wasted money.

Thank you!

Interested but have a conflict with August 8th:
(none so far)

It's in SF? That would be so cool to meet people and be at a huge vegan-fest! Is committing closer to the date ok too?

Yeah, that's ok.  Especially if you are already gonna be in CA.  It just comes into play when we are deciding where people are gonna stay, etc.

If I'm able to make it, I will most likely be alone and will probably do some hiking/bumming around before hand.  I would be grateful to anyone who would be willing to let me crash for a night or two (and I will probably have a rental car).

Alright.  so michael is getting more into the idea of touring out to the meetup, he thought that we could set up a show in san fran on either august 7th or 8th, which one do you think would be more fun?  I dont want to hijack our special day, unless an event like this would be something everyone would be interested in... if not, we could do it on the 7th and whoever is there early can come hang out and see me play!  yay!

How about you and he choose whichever date you want for the show, and we'll work around that! Either day is fine. Like I said, we don't have to do the main stuff on August 8th, anyway.  ;)b I would love to see the show!

I'll most likely be needing a place to stay, and a ride would be cool :D

I can take the train of course, but you know, convenience... If anyone's coming from L.A.

It's in SF? That would be so cool to meet people and be at a huge vegan-fest! Is committing closer to the date ok too?
I would also be coming from the LA area. Hopefully I'll have a car again by then, but not counting on it. Trains are nice =)

If by then neither of us has a car (and I don't have my license), we can take the train together :)

Ok, I'm serious. 8 months left....everyone who really wants to go..start saving now! Just decide on how much money you want/need to have for the whole trip..then figure out how much you should be saving for the remaining 7-8 months (break it into 2 weeks, or whatever..and divide it out). I have some money automatically transferred from one account into another account for saving every two weeks. I don't even notice that it's gone..but it's a consistently (obviously) growing! If you cash your checks, just set a bit aside.

I realize that some might be in school/not working/not getting paychecks, but if you do have some money coming in somewhere..hopefully you can find a way to save a bit every once and a while!

I hope everyone who wants to come can find the funds!  :)

eta: cakes, I don't mean for this to be directed at you..like.."cakes, save some money!," but I just wanted to share my method to make it so more people might find it feasible to come.  :-* I want you to come!

about the savings thing.  i started using capital ones online savings, my savings account is almost at 4% right now!  and it's supposed to go up to 5% soon.  YAY!  I've made 70$ in the past 5 months or so.  so YEAH!  its super easy and its all online, and since you nerds are always online anyways, its a sweet deal.  just sayin.
