Ohhh...we are so very nearly there at long last!  With less than a couple of weeks to go, we would like to give you one last newsletter with a rundown of the meet up that we have been able to plan.  In this issue you will find information about one or two planned events, the T-Shirt status, Karyu Pawl's Na'vi Lesson and more...

Planned Events

Although this meet up has had its trials and tribulations, your AvatarMeet Planning Team has tried to pull together a light program of events for us all to enjoy.  As you will see from the event schedule below, there will be time to explore Pittsburgh. To help with this, a Meet-up Survival Guide (MSG) has been prepared.  Inside it contains not only information about Pittsburgh, but also an overview of the public transport system, information on local restaurants, a brief history on Cirque du Soleil and an overview of Toruk - The First Flight.  Web links are provided for just about every aspect, along with QR codes for you to access further information by using your smart phone.  Each attendee will get their own copy at the meet up, but you can download your own PDF version before the meet up:

Toruk Na'vi Class
We are again very grateful to Karyu Pawl who will be giving us another 'txantsan' Na'vi lesson.  This time though, he will explore the language used in Toruk - The First Flight.  As you will expect, there will be one or two spoilers.  However, it will not diminish the amazing spectacle of the show and will help us immerse ourselves even more into the story.

If you would like to refresh your Na'vi, visit the 
LearnNa'vi YouTube Channel where you will find previous lessons for you to view.

Keep Your Shirt On!
Irayo nìtxan to everyone who ordered the AvatarMeet T-shirts.  A total of 35 T-shirts have been ordered and are being printed as we speak.  These will be brought to the meet-up courtesy of Fiyerwall, where attendees will be able to to pick them up.  For anyone not attending who ordered shirts, they will be forwarded on by Sarah post-meet-up.
