Her question was who has met who? I think we should ACTIVELY get a plan together. I am thinking Oprah would like to do a show where she unites all the passions poets. Why not? Anyone want to help  get something organized?

I have proposed this topic to a few people and everybody agreed with it.....but passion members are located all around the world.
Would this mean only the active members get to come, or what?

I really think it'd be an awesome thing to do, but who would provide the money and so on?

it would be a great idea but I think it could destroy some illusions, change perceptions of our favourite poets.
I vote we hold it in Perth Australia for no reason what so ever. Ok if I bring a date.
Some poets out there understand the above comment.

Like Javier said who pays the fare, we can't expect Ron to do it can we?

I think cyber land is probably the safest place for us poets to meet. I just have a bad feeling about all of us in a room together, am I the voice of gloom here?

I was thinking Oprah could pay. And we could all meet on her show  LOL
Hey, stranger things have happened.
Bri, do you really think we would lose all our delusions if we met in person?
Maybe, but it would be worth a try.

Why would Oprah pay for US to meet? haha
I think we need to be practical if we expect this to practically happen.

Have to agree with brian...and though we may all like to think we're Oprah material, we're probably more Montel or Springer.  Just my late night, very tired opinion.

We've had poetic conclaves - the most attended being our Washington DC meeting in September of 99... It was a wonderful time, though we had only a half dozen or so poets there.  We weren't at all disappointed in each other.

Planning such an event is a HUGE endeavor - Location is the first dilemma - We can't all agree on that one... As for finances - everyone has to be responsible for themselves - Collecting money from a group is virtually impossible, and was probably our biggest stumbling block...

We've learned that the best times are the impromptu ones - and to welcome as many as can manage to show up is best...

Well, we could be Oprah material, you never know. Especially since i now know of a true (TRUE) love that has come about through these pages.
OK, so she won't pay. What if we pick a place in the US and a place out of the US, each with a leader, just to let everyone know when and where, and we all manage to crawl, fly, drive, hitchhike there ourselves. I would come I would I would!
Just having the date and place set, and a few people committed to go, and we could grow from there. Gven enough notice, I'm sure at least a fairly decent gathering would take place.
It would be fun!
Give me something to look forward to, you guys! I'm in for whatever needs to be done. We could look through all the hometowns of memebers, and try to find a spot midway to most of us.
And no, I don't have a life, I told you that...

Oh my, meeting all of you                                     .
Have to start counting my savings (jee, hope I do have any)

Good old America, last time I've been there was in the eighties.

Please not in March and April please cause that's the time my flock of sheep are giving birth, have to stay with them.

Sounds like a blind date I'm getting all   just by the thought of it.

I think the best time would be around SUMMER....

Just to let people know....I'll be living in Atlanta.
I think it should be done in a city in the USA where everybody can meet.

This summer would be better if it were possible because next summer is just too darned far away to make plans for. Too much time for too many things to come up. Dopey, you're going to be in Atlanta? Cool.   I like the whole leader in each state or part of the US thingy or whatever. LOL!   If a group traveled together to one place the expense wouldn't be as bad perhaps? *shrugs* LOL! SONGBIRD?! Where are you?  Songbird is from here in MS. Serenity is an hour and a half away from me. There are more than a few from Alabama here too. Right? Hmm...Also a few in Arkansas.   Sorry, just letting my thoughts come out.

How about we do it every year, at a different spot, and whoever can come, will come. I'm agreeable to anywhere if I can get a cheap plane ticket. (IF is a big word)
I would like to go to California myself, cause I already love the place. South is good for me, too, I always wanted to see New Orleans. But hey, you could all come to NH, and be really and truly BORED. I think only Spitfire and I live in this area though.

If you're talking about THIS summer meaning within the next few months....I'm but a 18yr old heading off to prepare for college.....
I think the upcoming summer would be good, plus we'd have it all down to the roots when it comes to a where and stuff......maybe in somebody's house (a nice one to trash) so we can sleep over!!
Pajama party!

What a great idea, I think any season that works would be okay with me!  I think the south is a great place to meet, but so is New Hampshire.  Why not several meeting places so everyone has a chance to come?

Cape Cod is always a good option... Cottages galore... But alas they're nearer the ocean than they are ponds... ... and there's not much to do other than going to the beach, aquariums, parasailing, jetskiing, whale watches, museums, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Plymouth Rock & the Mayflower, shopping...

We sure did laugh a lot...

Coca cola, of course, but can I have just a bit of other stuff in it?
Anyone had a Colorado Bulldog? Made with Kahlua, Vodka,milk and coke. Sounds awful maybe, but really yummy.
Dopey you have to have just coke.
