    Update - I'm still waiting on a call back from the convention center about whether or not we can meet in their courtyard. I say we do it anyway.

    I'm going to try my best to attend, but I likely won't know if I can until the day of. At this point it seems like everyone can agree to the 19th at 12pm? Should we do this potluck style?

    *I'll send everyone who has committed to go a PM about this update

    I've been wondering what has happened to all the "get togethers." Good to see the one in Arizona going forward. Be sure to take lots of pictures!!

    I am in... As is my two year old and hatchlings...[hr]
    Meeting up at a convention center courtyard without permission...? Is that such a good idea conserving what has been happening with the wall street protestors?? Ya know Sherriff Joe is a little crazy, right? I can see him now on the 5 o'clock news "well, people congregating with exotic pets is a danger to the public...". Double chin a-jiggling away...

    There are two big parks off the SanTan and Elliot that sink into the ground and try are public parks...? Would that be better??

    The convention center courtyard is a no go. The person I talked to told me they usually have people who set up picnic tables and they usually let that slide, but since we were trying to organize something, that they would need to rent the space to us. So, I think Pioneer Park is the next best. Any objections?

    We should start nailing down specifics if we are going to do this next week.

    Pioneer Park was suggested - unless anyone objects...that is where we will meet.

    Potluck type picnic?

    Pioneer park is just a few blocks east of Mesa Dr. on Main St. It's on the north side, right across the street from the LDS temple.

    I am going to the show Saturday morning, so Sat. would be the easiest for me, but Sunday would probably be possible too. If no one wants to do the official "Arizona Gathering" thing, we should have some way to identify other TFO members at the show so we could at least say hi. Maybe we could all paint our faces green?
