Time to Decide the Date for AvatarMeet 2017
frapo! Well, as time flies by like an Ikran being chased by a
Toruk, it is about time we started firming up some aspects for
AvatarMeet 2017. The date is the biggest one. Rather than the
planning team try and decide the date for the meetup, we thought we
would ask you attendees. To get your input we have pulled together
a little survey that is linked further down in this newsletter.
There are also a number of other aspects we would like your opinion on,
which are covered below.
We have included a couple of questions
regarding this. Since there will be a lot of potential activities
we can do, we are not sure if we can fit them all into the usual 3 full
days that normally make up AvatarMeet. So the first question is
about if you would like to extend the meet up to a full fives day.
We have listed four possible dates for the meet up: the last two weeks
in October and the first two weeks in November. There are a number
of aspects to consider with this since it will be Halloween time. We
are also trying to avoid the last part of the hurricane season as well
as fitting in with what the majority would like as a date.
Hotel or House?
The next question in the survey asks simply
if you would prefer to stay in a hotel or rent a number of houses for
the clan. Before you decide here is some information regarding
both of them. Here is a link for the neighborhood that looks to be the closest to Animal Kingdom: Windsor Hills Resort
the hotel front, there are many to choose from which are in close
proximity to Disney's Animal Kingdom. The prices vary depending on
where you stay. This link takes you to a map with the hotel locations.
The last two questions in the survey concern
other activities. These are related to camping and volunteering. In
some of the previous meetups a number of the clan have gathered before
the official start and have gone camping and gotten closer to nature.
More recently we have also made volunteering at a local nature reserve
part of the meet up as a way of continuing theme of Avatar. The survey
simply asks if you would like to do them.
