Sven, judging by the reports (and photos) of the D.C. trip, there is NO location suitable for a group of poets. Even the San Diego Zoo has standards, you know...

This may be true Ron, but if you'll remember, the zoo gets excitable around feeding time. . .we're always excitable!!  

And I'd hate to see all of us around feeding time!!

Ok... here's the deal...

"i'm going to graceland... graceland... memphis tennessee... i'm going to graceland... i've got a reason to believe we all will be received in graceland"

whoops... sorry... i love paul so much... *grin*

ummm... who's the Organizer of this shindig? Nan said i'd have some input... and, as usual, she was right... lol.. from doing this before, the best way to do it is to have a couple of Organizers working together (hmmm... this time, i might have to take a break from the assignment, if that's ok with all of you...   ... but....i'd love to design the poster and the t-shirts, picture these t-shirts... ("I Survived with Passion"... or "I Donated My Time to the Passionate Poetpeople Unmasquerade #II and All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt")

anyway, i think someone in this thread mentioned finding out who was 'seriously' interested in attending first and that's a great idea...but you can't find that out until a place and time are selected... i don't recommend picking a date any earlier than august because this will take a couple of months to plan... i'd narrow it down to 2-3 places, then take a vote...

the place and date need to be picked first... people can't tell you if they are 'seriously' interested unless someone tells them when and where and for how long

i guess that's pretty obvious... LOL... but what i'm trying to say is

THIS WON'T HAPPEN unless someone is nominated and elected as Organizer and starts making some decisions... everybody wants to meet in a convenient place for them which is why when i organized it, i had the poetpeople come to me! LOL... and yeah.. we had a blast!!

So.... wherever it this get-together happens, i'd really LOVE to come!! But vacations need to be planned so... who's in charge???

chicago would be nice, btw... hehe... i think i might like that... never been there

oh, and ron, you crack me up... LOL... "NO location is suitable to poets"... hehe... and nan was right... that's why we wore disguises....  

this time, i want to meet the wizard... that's for sure!!! even a curtain call would be kewl!!

i don't know if i'd call it a 'reunion', tho... since most of us haven't met... we called it 'unmasquerade' the first time around but call it what you will, just tell me where to go..... (maybe i shouldn't have said that.. *wink*)

So, Mr. or Ms. Organizer... give me my assignment.. designing the posters, online invitations, t-shirts... woohooo!!! I can't wait!! But i need text first with date, time, costs & location...

oh... and i love the cape, so that would work for me, too... but i'm not picky... timing is more important than location IMHO... planes go everywhere

take care, you poetpeople... i'll check back on this thread soon!

Hey there! Chicago is great! An hour or so away from me    Michigan is even good, though Chicago is better.

And Ron we have plenty of corn fields around here

Well how about some place in Canada.... you get twice the bang for your US buck. I also like the cape fresh lobsters...yeah.
British Columbia.... Toronto...
Montreal... or Nova Scotia on the Atlantic side Halifax is interesting city... right on the very edge.. Cape Briton its a celtic mecca and the scenery is amazing... lots of nice bed and breakfests Inn's. Some of the seaside towns are like stepping back in time 200 years, a real pirate adventure place.
So those are my suggestions...

Geesh..Did everyone just give up on this idea, and abandon this thread...   It certainly is difficult to get together on things like this over the net though. Lets hope this happens eventually.

I think Nashville would be great, The song writing capitol of the states, so our poetry would be accepted, you have friendly people, down home cooking, and lots of space , major airport too...
We southern folk love poetry...lol..hospitality is our middle name!

I agree with the Masquerade idea, and fall would be a great time, when the leaves are changing and everyone has had their vacation, we could do card invitations over the net through e-mail.Then everyone could print them out...

Contact some bands for music, and the local media for publicity.Maybe have some famous poets like Maya Angelo, Recite some poetry or give words of encouragement, The decorations could be shakespearean era,We could have some games to play, contests,..etc.

You know Williamsburg Va, the olde Country , back in Colonial days is a great place, they have huge conference halls there.There is coblestone streets, with horse and buggy , London Style streets of old. Beautiful in the fall...

Well i maybe throwing a big spanner in the works on this....but what about the place where most of the classic poets and poems came from in the first place and where most of the american people are descended, England..
Stratford upon Avon where the Bard himself came from.....

There are poets from England on pip too you know, we all should come together in the place where the first dictionary was created by Johnson and since we HAVE to use words in poetry.... it should be England the home of english language...

What´s wrong with the Netherlands?........besides the different of space (I suppose most of you need to stretch your wings somehow) and off course the language is different too, nice words to speak out loud especially when done by PIP Poets.

But I for one would love to join a reuninon and to meet you Piptalk people

For sure Colon, Michigan!!
And Ron...we do sleep in tents...
and RV's on the grounds of the high school.
Besides..the residents of Colon are used to weird people taking over their town.

First time I came to America
I got married tra la la
The second time I went over there
Poets hugged me and took care
of this little Dutchie from far away
and they almost made me stay

A third time I welcome with passionate love
I'll put on my wings and fly above
the land of poets great and small
Lets gather around and have a ball

I can personally vouch for the fact that some folks do indeed sleep in tents in Colon... The bunnies just move aside to make room...

LOL   There's nothing wrong with sleeping in tents in Colon...it would be so much fun if a whole lot of us could get together. I love that idea.

Colon's probably not big enough or exciting enough to contain a Passionate gathering... There are lots of good places though. Our friend Bill Charles  has suggested his mountain retreat in the Canadian Rockies - How about that?..

I think we should all come to ElectricLadyLand - we would have a blast!
Thats NYC to non-Hendrix fans LOL
of course, it would have to be Greenwich Village . . .

Canada is close, The Falls like 10 minutes from me, CT, MD, PA, OH, DC, and a small field by my house where we can all pitch tents with the carnies and pretend we are gypsies . . .

I would really want to go but at the same time, I'd be worried about not quite fitting in... you know?  I'm a lot younger than some of you guys, and most of the open folks I don't know, and don't know me.  Hmm... I guess it really depends on the "activities," ya know?  

While I'd love to meet all of you I tend not to be a fan of big group gatherings.  I prefer time spent with a person one-on-one.  Maybe if I put some cash away I'll come down for the Passions gathering but I don't know, it really depends on what it's like...

If you guys settle on something, then someone let me know and I'll see if it sounds like my cup of tea...

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
