Scioly.org Swap Meet Table

Post by Paradox21 » May 1st, 2011, 5:03 pm

For years we scioly users have talked about meeting other scioly.org users at the swap meet. Well, this year I will take the initiative to create the central location. I will bring a large sign that says 'scioly.org' on it. Feel free to stop by to swap and talk with other scioly users live and in person. I will bring name tags for you to write your scioly username on so we can tell who you are. It'll be a party.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Are you just going to sacrifice the Eastview table, or are you going to try to get your own?

Alternatively, we could create placards (like the one I created below) to place at each of our separate tables. We could also wear such placards as nametags. Then we will be recognized wherever we are on May 20 at the Kohl Center.

Meh, I think a table is better. We should all just flock there and forget the swap meet (I personally will give everything in my bag away for a cheese hat, then make a beeline for the table).

Completely agreed. I vote for a table; Dox and I will set one up immediately after opening ceremonies.

It's my first time going to Nationals, so I kind of want to attend the swap meet, despite the fact that I really want to meet Sciolians as well. Plus, I think that incidental meetings would more fun than planned meetings. But perhaps we could just have a table as a sort of "base," then be able to still attend the swap meet. Dox's idea would work especially well if the Scioly table was among the other school tables.

You can do that- I will park myself there just so I can meet everyone.

An hour, according to the tournament site, but that seems short...

EDIT: Also, Naps, I may have to park myself with you - all I really want is a cheese hat.
