Before you ask, please be sure to read this post carefully so as not to avoid repeat questions.

When: October 23, 2010, Saturday
Where: UP Diliman (either at the Grandstand of the Sunken Garden or the Lagoon, depends on the weather, we'll inform you guys ASAP and instructions on how to get there)
Tentative time: 11am to 5pm

Okay, we'll be asking for everyone's cooperation here. Let's make our meet-up awesome!

Things we need: (please please please inform us if you can bring or provide the stuffs below, it'd be highly appreciated!)
- picnic umbrellas
- tables
- chairs
- mats

Food is potluck! Comment on what you'd be able to bring!

Committees in need of volunteers:
- marshalls (you'll be assisting the mods in carrying out the logistics of the entire day)
- first aiders (two who are somehow versed in first aid, please inform us the essentials of a first aid kit!)
- documentation (for the entire congregation, you'll be documenting the day's highlights so that everyone has photos)

Suggestions for activities is OPEN!
- games
- skits (for those who'd like)

We'll have a vote on the suggestions some time in early October so that we'd be able to finalize our schedule for the day.

FAQ:
What if it rains?
- Plan A is Lagoon, Plan B is Sunken Garden because at the very least it's got a stable roof. As stated, we'll inform you of the final location.

Where is Sunken/Lagoon?
- As soon as we've finalized the location, we'll release a 'how to get there' video a la Ame no Jidai last year.

May we bring parents?
- Everyone is welcome!

Do we have to cosplay?
- Not exactly, but it will be super duper appreciated if a lot of people did.

Where are the accessible bathrooms?
- We have yet to confirm whether adjacent buildings are open during that day. It's the sem break kasi.

May we sell merchandise / do commissions?
- Absolutely! We'll provide mats or tables for the artists. Just drop us a line!

Please comment with your suggestions, reactions and questions! You're very much welcome to contact the mods on Hetalia Philippines groups in Livejournal, deviantArt and Facebook.

Super-late, pero....

OAO MAY SUGGESTION AKO PO!!!
/spazzes/

Giant. Twister. For the crackshipping and the lulz.

Will try to gather more ideas! *Salutes*


And also, I'll try to bring a first-aid kit. My mom was taking care of someone who fainted (I think) in last year's hetalia day, and since she's not going with me this year, I want to help *A*

Thanks for this! Unfortunately, we've already given the final count for IDs (docu and first aiders need to have them so people know who to go to) but we'll list you as a volunteer! :)

Kindly check this post nalang for the reminders.

That's good to hear! Just a warning about bringing ice cream though, our venue will most likely be open air and will have minimal ...anything so unless people are willing to bring a cooler, okay. Pero ice cream on it's own out in the sun might melt before we eat or something ;A;

When we have the official details of ...everything, haha, we'll include directions how to get to the campus and the actual location, because the campus is pretty huge.

It's at Quezon City (near to Ateneo Katipunan and QC Memorial Circle). :D

Here's a map: [link]

Here's a closer look of where the location would be [link]

Look for no.16, that's the Business Ad building. In front of it (the bushy green part :P) is the Sunken Garden. The Lagoon is near it too. :D

But from where are you coming from (Manila or other city)? That way, I could check the map where you can go. >D

In Sta. Mesa, QC

SweetIris Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Sta. Mesa, near the LRT station?

If you're going to commute, you can ride LRT V. Mapa and get off at Katipunan station. Ask a guard there where "UP Ikot" jeepney terminal is. You can just walk from the station towards the terminal. It's under the overpass.

Make sure to ask the driver to drop you off at Sunken Garden. :D Don't worry, they don't bite. :P

Kidding aside, if you'll be going with a private car you can take Aurora Blvd, Cubao (I'm pretty sure your driver would know where is that). And drive to P. Tuazon, Cubao (I forgot which street you should turn from Aurora ^^;) then take Katipunan overpass. :) After that, you can follow the map (link) I've shared.

If you are still unsure how to get there, note me your cellphone. That way, I can text you the directions on the day itself. ^//u//^

May alam ka bang kilalang landmark malapit sa inyo (school o hospital)? Or a LRT station (I think this would be more helpful)?
