AvatarMeet 2017: Here we go!
Well, it's been
a while since the meet up in Pittsburgh and what an experience it
was. The meet up was almost cancelled due to the
homophobic/transphobic legislation being passed in North Carolina
causing Cirque du Soleil to cancel their show there. However the
show was moved to Pittsburgh and so did AvatarMeet.
For everyone who was able to go it was a 'txantsan' experience; from
Karyu Paul's walk through of the dialogue used in the Cirque du Soleil
show and painting the town blue, through to the show itself and getting
to look behind the scenes of 'Toruk - The First Flight' with members of
the cast and crew.
In this newsletter you will find links to photos from the meet up so you
can see what we were up to or reminisce if you were there. We
also turn our thoughts to AvatarMeet 2017, which as you will probably
know will visit Florida for 'Pandora - The World of Avatar', at Disney
World. You will find more information about our next meet up along
with a survey to allow you to pass on your thoughts and opinions to the
AM17 - Timing:
As many of you will probably be aware of,
the suggested date for AvatarMeet 2017 is October 2017. Why?

came up with a suggestion for accommodation for the next meet up;
instead of staying in a hotel, why not rent some holiday homes?
This would reduce the accommodation cost and allow us to be closer
together. The planning team have been looking into this and have
found a number of possible sites such as this one and this one. We are
also still looking into hotel accommodation possibilities. In this
newsletter, we have included a link to a survey where one of the
questions relates to accommodation so you can express your
- We don't know exactly when the attraction will open.
- It will give them time to iron out any issues.
- The weather will be cooler.
