If NOT. . . i thought about it lately.
GOD. . . how cool that was!
I know, i know: It is really NOT an easy Adventure!!!
But somehow: a wonderful Idea,hm?
I CAN remember the Invitation of a greek Member to come to his Island???
But, if it would be possible. . .(for the US-People or from other far away Countries it would be expensive, i can imagine)to meet in a major European City (lets say London, Berlin, Paris, Rome), it would be like a Vacation-Trip for those People, WITH the BONUS-feature to meet us european Friends while travelling Europe.
I simply die, when thinking of the Fact to SEE, talk and laugh with (List can only be incomplete) T-DOGG, 8thPlanet, Lily, Mercy, Lore. . .
No. . .please don`t only laugh about this often mentioned Idea!!!!
I can imagine others like this Idea TOO.
Its some time until the upcoming Summer. . . so, we again should think about it.
I believe there are a lot of Loonies, who would give a Bed for that time.
Example: In my Place there can sleep 3 Guests.
We have a german saying: "Where a WILL is, there is a WAY!"
I would make myself available to manage something here in the german area. . . like i think there are other Loonies who would do the same for the british, italian, french areas.
Some basic Facts would be:
1. - the major DATE the Meeting could happen.
2. - the major PLACE where the Fun should happen (an alternative, cool Restaurant, a freaky Cafehouse with enough Space etc)
3. - 3 days before and 3 days after. . .the maintenance with Beds at Loonies private Places.
4. - weeks before the help with Embassies for our foreign Friends
5. - Coordination of Point 2 (Booking!) and 4 (Papers?)
It would be VERY helpful if 2 or 3 other Loonies (from every "european Base" one) would act as a "Manager" for HIS Country in Coordination.
Sorry, cause my english is not that good to describe exactly. . . but be sure that my DOING would be exact!!!
If we would do some kind of Shortlist, we could find out which City the majority of us would like to choose.
Next List would be the TIME-List.
THEN. . . the Coordination could start.
I would provide the Loonies (if the Meeting would happen in Germany!) with Images of fine Places (the mentioned Restaurants or Cafehoses), and Textinfos about those.
Like i said in the beginning: The Idea is NOT new. . . but: "Where a WILL is, there is a WAY!"
Lets read what you think about it.
I am VERY curious now.
Cause ONE thing is CLEAR: EVERYBODY would have a wonderful Experience when going back home.
Beside the major Meeting-Day, we could do some Sightseeing of interessting Places, which are NOT mentioned in Travelguides!!!
ME can only talk about MY Engagement Germany. If it would happen in Italy or France, England or Ireland, Denmark or Sweden. i am sure we could manage it EVERYWHERE.
Love + Peace, Rayray
Maybe we could get a Lunatic discount at the hotel?
If we asked politely
Although we might get the full 'Moon' as a response :-]
Synthercat was arranging the Greek gathering IIRC.

I've had a location in my mind for quite some time . "with reptile tonque and lightening lashes ___________ built to last"
Fill in the blank, precede it with the English of leBlanc and you have the name of the place in my mind
Perfect place for a handful of loonies!

"Where a WILL is, there is a WAY!". As we say in dutch, 'waar een wil is, is een weg!'
I'd love to join a lunie meeting! As I'm just 16 i'm not allowed to travel all on my own so some place like greek, though i'd love to! If there would be a meeting in Germany or belgium or some place like that, i'll be there!

Towers built to last! English of leBlanc towers? Err. ^^
I'll be 18 really sooon, so I can go! But why not Germany? There's a lot of loonies from Germany I believe.
Und ich glaube ich kann ok in Deutchland überleben. :-]
I would really love to meet you all!

"As I'm just 16 i'm not allowed to travel all on my own"
Not ALONE. . . but in Attendance of an ADULT, you CAN!
I know the european Rights a little, and because my daughter (she`s only 13) wanted to go to sweden, we had a similar "Problem".
Which turned out as NO PROBLEM, cause a 23 years old female Friend of mine traveled with her as the adult Attendance. . . so it WAS possible!
We as Parents only had to write a little Note that we aloud this!
However. . . "waar een wil is, is een weg!". . . and a Solution TOO!

By the way, I have been informed from Lia, that there is a meeting in Switzerland too next, from another fanclub.
But we had the GGGGG meeting lately, that she arranged in Göttingen too, which was also announced here and thus had some of us loonies there, for example Synthercat and Deb, who came extra from the US and Greece. I also went there, and it was really nice!
As for those in Europe who do not wish to travel very far, it might be a good idea to ask Lia for more.

Cool Idea, cool Tip Mi-Chi!

Just contact Lia, same page as the PG comix (I just don't have it at hand, sorry, lazy and busy with other things)
There HAVE been Lunatic gatherings in many places.North Carolina, Mexico City, Chicago, London,
Gottingen, Bath, Philadelphia, New York City, Montreal, Toronto and London Canada,Columbus and Cleveland Ohio, and lots and lots for our UK and European friends. Not all of them had much to do with actually SEEING Peter but they all involved seeing good friends.Friendships created by this place. Any time 2 people who met in this place get together, it is a gathering of Lunatics and lots of fun is guaranteed to be had by all. I hope you all get to attend one some day.

I would love to meet up with some fellow lunatics, but between work and money, I don't have much chance of getting out of Southern California these days. = If anyone wants to work out something in the SoCal area, I'd be up for it. I've met up with other people I've met online before, and it has always been a blast!

Every extra dollar and penny we have is going into home renovations for the next year or so. Our house is old (for the northeastern US), at almost 100 and is in need of a lot of work. We started in December 2006 and are pushing to finish by August 2008.
My spirit will be with you all wherever and whenever. And I'll make arrangements with Ray to "buy a round" for my Lunatic friends.

I'd really enjoy meeting up with fellow lunatics, but it's hard for me to travel right now. If anyone from New York would like to meet up, I'd go - just shoot me a PM.
