Let me cut to the chase, since I realize this is last-minute, not to mention we’re talking about a weekday and I also know many people travel in summer.
While there were a few small OMAAT meetups last summer in London and Washington D.C, I’ve also been trying to organize a bigger reader meetup for quite a while. With the way readership has grown, I keep finding myself getting intimidated by the logistics, and it gets put on the back burner. That needs to change, but in the meantime I figure something is better than nothing, and summer is at least a nice time to get together weather-wise.
I’ll be at LAX this week doing some filming, the details of which I look forward to sharing soon. It’s all about miles and points and travel (though don’t worry, it won’t be anything too detailed). Rather than just making it about me, however, I’d like to do what I can to showcase the broad variety of people who love miles & points, and how much of a community this is. Even though I haven’t met most of you, I still consider you to mostly be friends & family (for better or worse). 😉
Anyway, the plan is to kick back and do some plane spotting at LAX. We’re looking at doing this either late Monday night or around lunchtime on Tuesday (I know these are terrible times, I’m sorry, the schedule is really limited at this point), and it would be awesome if some of you could join!
Since this is last minute and I realize the timing isn’t ideal, please let me know if you think you’d be able to make it, and if so if Monday night (after about 8:30PM) or Tuesday around noon would work better. I’ll work on getting details nailed down ASAP based on what works best for you guys.
If any of you can make it, awesome, and I do hope to have more gatherings regardless!
