I would be interested in meeting up with guys in Atlanta, sometimes you can get a cheap flight to Atlanta from Tampa.  Just let us know the dates, if it would fit in my schedule I think it would be a blast...   D

The Dates for the Just Meet in Atlanta Weekend will be September 18-21 2008. Those of you that can make it glad for you to come and those of you that can not make maybe we can meet someplace else next time.

I am looking forward to seeing most of those I have met in previous meetings. Hopefully there will be some new people that show up this time around if not we will miss you while in Atlanta for the week of the 18-21.

I will say again this is in no way a gathering for AMG. Just a nice weekend spending with our friends who are living with HIV.

Lisa will give more information out about this weekend getaway when she gets her new computer this week. Yes she is finally getting her a new computer so she will be back talking your ears off again soon.

Unfortunately while Atlanta is doable for Jeromy and I, the date is not.

Hopefully the next group meet will work for us.

Have fun guys!

Well it looks ok to me... I'll get out the buggy and horse and start travelling towards Atlanta... it will probally be more likely the 19th before I could attend... but, I will see... so if anyone in the area of montgomery or travelling through needs a lift... give me a holler.... John

Darn !.....


Well, I looked at the proposed dates, and Ed and I just can't make it, this time around., And we were really looking forward to it.
After checking my planner, we have the St. Pete Aidswalk scheduled on September 13th. One week prior to the proposed Atlanta gathering.

Unfortunately we we have to try again another time. We have walked in this event for the past three years, and need to support this local event, as we will be walking with my doctor's office staff again this year.  I will be taking two days off the week prior to the Atlanta gathering, so it makes it impossible to take additional time off from work to drive up to Atlanta.

I am sure it will be a great time for those attending. Perhaps next year !

Gosh Ray! We just keep missing each other don't we?!
When we first started talking about this, the first priority was that we needed to be near a large airport hub. There are about three or four folks I know of that would need to fly in, and flying to a big hub would be less expensive. I knew I wasn't going to have things in order around here until the very near fall so I opted out of the AMG(much as I would love to be there). By the same token, I know we have a large number of folks who are in the mid-west, and we have a boatload of people from the east coast.
This is only intended to be an inexpensive quickie(c'mon who here doesn't like cheap quickies?)
I have found the Microtel Inn Galleria in Smyrna(to be close to a sick friend) 5300 S. Cobb Dr. SE      A double bed room is 43.99$/ and will be hopefully within reason, especially if you split cost with somebody. Continental bkfst, and a discount code is available if you go through hotels.com. The TF Ph.=800-916-8592.
Just intended to be a long weekend to be together 18..th thru 21st. or 22nd..
There will be a few of us with cars, so I think we will be able to be mobile if we want to. There's a mall and some other cool stuff in the area.
I am looking so forward to wrapping my arms around as many friends as possible. I've been saving up a bunch of energy, and kisses in my long absence.  :-*

New York would be closer for me too . But I'm still thinking of the Atlanta gathering. My younger brother and his wife live in Atlanta. I have'nt seen them in a while so if I go to the  event I will be able to see my brother too.

Hey guys, it is always great to see wonderful new friends I've met over the past few years anyplace...But with Mexico in August and the POZ cruise in October, Atlanta will not be doable for me in September, money and vacation time off from work considered.

For folks who want to come to New York, let me know and I can look around for hotel accomodations for you and hopefully throw out some ideas and help folks get around.

Howdy gang!
I just got off the phone with Alan, who knows infinately more about Atlanta than I, and we wondered whether any one has made any reservations yet. I threw out the Microtel because of location, and price, but we may be able to find a little something else. If no one has made the call yet, then we may make it another establishment. Chime in. /...or hold on to yer britches.   :-*

I thought about that Sparks, but everything in midtown is at least 100$/night or more. Many of us can't afford that. Not that that has to keep others from wanting to stay in midtown. There will be at least two of us with cars. I also like the Smyrna location to be near a friend. Maybe that friend can help be a guide to town.
