This would be an open invitation to all Pacific Northwest (or
Southwest, if you're Canadian) AFPers to join us at the University
of Washington for an AFPmeet following the 7:00 signing at Kane Hall
on the University of Washington Campus.

If you're attending the signing, be sure to call the bookstore at
(206) 634-3400, or toll free at: 1-800-335-READ to reserve tickets
soon. They're free. The bookstore is five-minute's walk from the
site of the signing, so you can pick them up when you get there.

So that we can all recognize one another, it is recommended that
everyone carry some form of chocolate. Mary (that's me) will be
there with a sign of some kind as well. Presumably, anyone left
hanging around after Pterry leaves will be planning on going with us
to the restaurant down the street.

The name of the place we'll be headed is Dalmuti's. It is,
apparently, ten minute's walk, but it seems likely that people who
brought cars will end up offering rides to those who arrived by
other means.

If you need crash space, please mention it on the group. Something
can likely be arranged.

This bit is completely self-serving: if you're driving up from south
of Seattle, please let me know. I'd really prefer to catch a ride
back to Tacoma than take a series of busses at night.

Reposting the details, here, at the last minute. Thanks to Glinda
for reminding me.

Nobody's asked for crash space or tried to arrange rides (except me,
and I seem to have convinced some locals to drive up with me, in
case you were worried) and I've got maybe three or four actual
yesses, so we'll see what happens.

Subject: [F] Seattle meet March 30
Message-ID: <38BDA83C.CF530297@ups.edu>

I'm not really the most suitable person to organize an AFPmeet,
being new to the area and never having even attended one before- but
I don't expect much actually has to be done to arrange this one.
We'll all be in one place at the same time anyway:

Thursday, March 30              University Bookstore
Seattle
7PM                             
4326 University Way, NE Seattle, WA     
Signing to be held on UW campus at Kane Hall
(206) 545-4363

The problems, I think are 1) how to recognize one another as AFPers
2) where to go after the signing? and 3) Where people from Vancouver
and Oregon and etc. are going to stay.

If you're interested in coming, reply to the group, okay? That way,
we can all see how this is going to work together...

Now, my suggestions--

2) first- Inspired by Anitra's address, I've been considering the
Speakeasy Cafe (http://www.speakeasy.net/cafe.html) as an option. It
claims: "We offer a diverse selection of refreshments, including
coffees, pastries, beer and wine. The cafe is over 5000 sq. feet.
and filled with couches, tables, computers with highspeed Speakeasy
Network xDSL access." Looks like it could accomodate whoever shows
up. But I don't know where it is relative to the University of
Washington campus, despite some puzzling over maps. I'm automotively
challenged, and would probably have to catch a ride anyway. If
someone has a better idea, like someplace on the UW campus itself,
by all means, suggest it.

Now for number 1) I suggest we all carry chocolate. Then we can
exchange offerings, and enjoy the experience for days afterward...
<g> I don't know the UW campus at all, but from the map
(http://www.washington.edu/home/maps/northcentral.html?80,83,680,448)
it looks like there's a visitor's info center nearby which we could
probably all locate, immediately after the signing?

As for 3)... This is a call for volunteers. I live in Tacoma, in a
dorm room, and one or two people can probably crash in sleeping bags
on the floor. Probably have to be female people, or I'd get thrown
out. And that assumes that I can find a way to get back from Seattle
after the busses stop running- anyone who wants crash space may have
to volunteer a ride for me.

This post is being cc'd to the following people, who have mentioned
being localish. Nicholas or Glinda, would you mind sending it on to
Gordon? I've lost his address, somehow.
