The meeting of Newsviners in Columbus, Ohio will be in just over two weeks as of this posting. The place is the Airport Holiday Inn on Stelzer Road near the Columbus Airport Main entrance. I will be on site at about noon on Friday, 18 May 2007. The Hospitality Suite will be available at 3pm. (Sooner if available) Plastic tumblers and ice will be supplied in the room. All other refreshments or food will be up to the attendees. A well stocked bar and restaurant are available. The hotel also has an indoor pool.
Purpose of this meeting is to inaugurate person to person gatherings of Newsviners in furtherance of our mutual social and community goals. All attendees are encouraged to add to our agenda in any way they can. Attendees may want to organize themselves into groups or individuals may want to expand that particular weekend or time for additional purposes. This is encouraged but let's have a nice time getting acquainted first.
There will be at least one computer dedicated to covering the events of the meet as they transpire and also for communications use by attendees. A still camera will be available. It is possible we will generate a collaborative article to be posted to Newsvine during the meet.
On Saturday morning, the Meet will move to a Bob Evans restaurant located in Gahanna, OH, approx 5 miles from the airport. Breakfast will be the end of the official meet but need not be the end of all activities. As previously indicated, anyone wishing to camp out at my home in Coshocton County will be welcomed and assisted in getting there. Just realize immediate facilities are limited or unlimited depending on how well you use a shovel.
Until approximately 9am on Friday the 18th of May I can be reached at 740-623-0509 or anytime on cell 740-202-0433. I would appreciate word by email or otherwise from anyone not included on the list above. If for some reason someone makes a last minute decision to attend they will be fully and elaborately welcomed. On To Columbus!
