"All I can say is wow!" That was a quote from Gathering organizer Winter Silversmith late this evening. Today the fifth Gathering meet and greet set yet another attendance record of 27 [beating the old record set October 30th of 21]. "It's a new record for the Gathering and a new record for 2017 - one that needs to be beaten again before the year is over" Winter exclaimed.
The once monthly get together started at 10:00am today at the Great Canadian Grid cabin and friends and neighbours quickly showed up to hang out. The photo above was taken around 10:30am and had fourteen people seated. "I never expected it to grow to be so popular" Winter said "I was hoping that maybe a dozen people turn out and if we were lucky it would last about an hour".
The Gathering set two records today, one for attendance and the other for duration. Instead of the usual one to two hour get together this meeting lasted for FIVE HOURS. The remaining half dozen people who had been there for most of the event, including Winter Silversmith, left shortly after 3:10pm GCG Time.
The meeting took on an interesting format this week. "First we had a few hours of social chit chat on everything from buying regions to glow in the dark penisis. Then as things settled down there was an hour or so of neighbourhood watch and safe community discussion and finally we ended the day with a round or two of less witty banter fueled by too much coffee and far too many beers" said Winter. "I'll have to check my notes if you want to know anything further" he said "until then you just need to get your butts down to the next Gathering".
The next Gathering Meet & Greet will be held at the Great Canadian Grid Cabin on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 at 10:00am GCG Time. This is about two weeks earlier than usual as we're trying to hold them by-weekly until mid April (when things get crazy again for Winter in RL).
