I suggest Dwarfcon '09 be on Valentine's day, and thus we can guarantee that none of us will be otherwise occupied.

Well, actually, I just need 28 hours of travel time up and then back down.
Valentines day '08 got us the Dwarven relationships screen though. (at least iirc)

Re: So.... That was a pretty fun meetup last year.

Actually a webcast with live chat for the meet up doesn't sound like a half bad idea.
The problem comes when the inevitable games start up, be it cards or DF.
A talking screen with a gangly long haired british dwarf isn't going to be the most dexterous of machines.

I live in Seattle, and I'm too new to the game to have been at the last meetup.  I'd definitely be interested in a meetup in the Seattle area.

I live in Vancouver and will gladly dodge the attack dogs, landmines, helicopters and fire imps of Canadian Customs to get here.

But I have to cast my vote against Valentine's, as my girlfriend might be annoyed.

Zach and I would be able to make it pretty much any time that you guys decide as long as it's in or around Seattle again and there's enough notice for Zach to take a day off.

I would go since Seattle is only a couple hours from where I live. But I am under 18 and I assume most people on the forums are over 18 so it would be really awkward.

Last time we had a range of ages from like 17 to 35.  I think about half of us were even old enough to drink.  So don't sweat it, I'd think most people would be glad to have you along.

Not really, check out the age poll. We have lot of young users also.  :)

Dang, I live in Canada, as much as I would love to actually meet the creative genius behind DF, I need to pay rent and food. I could always hitchhike I suppose... Or I could try and capture woodland creatures and barter them for some tickets...

I can just picture it; starting from southern California and out in dry Nevada, and down from the wastes of Canada, come seemingly normal buses and trains and cars. First all is quiet, then slowly more and more pale, laptop-wielding travelers gather on these vehicles. Bus routes join to trains, cars collect and pass through customs and over highways.

Someone normal walks down the streets of Seattle and passes the train station, when with a sudden roar a mob appears, bursting out the station doors, crying "Hail Armok! Hail Today One! Hail Dwarf Fortress!" And the city of Seattle shall know true fear.
