that's one thing. XD You kinda have a legit reason. ROFL I wouldn't expect people to fly here for that.

A friend of mine had some of those. I do not really know much about them to be honest.

I would've visited you if I were the kind of person to go to conventions, but since I don't go to conventions...

this wasn't a convention. It was just a small meeting in a private park.

My chances of going were much smaller then. Still, were you ever holding a meeting in a city a would've been in, I would have visited.

Depending on your city, the odds are very small of that happening. We try to pick a spot in a region good for people of multiple cites. This one was only an hour from two large cities, and it was a spring without a huge entry fee. Many springs are not cheap or are very packed this time of year. We did not want to have it in a city because we figured having a natural environment would be more enjoyable, more relaxing.

Plus a spring offers camping, fishing, swimming and open spaces to just enjoy. That was our logic behind it. If you would ever go, only if it was in your city, honestly those odds are not good. You cannot expect us to cater to the needs/desires of everyone individually. We can only do our best to try to make as many happy as possible.

Sometimes it means causing a slight inconvienence for some. You happened to be one of those people this time, though keep in mind it was nothing personal. Just how the dice rolled.

Tat and I hosted it TOGETHER.

I'm not talking about people who dont' live nearby. If you live in another state or country, that's one thing, so that's not directed at people in your situation.

Money and work is a totally legit reason for not going. This isn't directed at people in your case.

I still wish i could've gone, plus the actual anouncement of when and where exactly it would be was a short notice on here. Even if i had the money, i still would've needed at least 2 weeks notice so i could request it off from work.

Yes, we did feel it was a bit short notice. However the timing for us was best that weekend, and we felt it was best option to ensure both hosts could be there.
