    All,

    As you probably know, we are having 3 gatherings this weekend in Seattle (Hyatt Bellevue), San Francisco (Hyatt SFO) and Los Angeles (Hyatt Summerfield Suites LAX) to build the site and everyone is of course welcome to join!

    Due to the short notice, many doesn't have the opportunity to show up in person

    That's why we're having a chat aligned with the gatherings that everyone from all over the world can participate in.

    You will be able to discuss the site and be a part of building the content from your own couch wearing yoga pants!

    There are Starbucks, Five Guys and other gift cards and other sweet gifts that will be awarded throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday for great content, best posts, reviews, threads etc. Randy will raffle out the first round on Saturday at 11AM Pacific, I will do this on Sunday at 1PM Pacific time.

    Everyone who's in the chat room (lower left corner) and are contributing by posting good content, will be able to win great gifts

    Please join us creating milepoint.com!

    Times of chat: 830AM pacific to noon pacific and 1PM to 5PM pacific both Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th

    Even though I am planning on attending one of the events, I think this is a great idea to get people from all over involved.

    My thought would be yes, just so that people will notice them when they look at the upcoming events, especially since these chats are going to be one of the main ways many members will be able to participate in the discussion going on in a more real time fashion than even posting on topics on the forum

    I'll be traveling and not sure what my internet access will be, but I'll try to access the chat if I'm online during these times. Geez.....I have about 30 hours in SJU (including sleeping off the after-effects of a redeye), where I have never been, and I cannot believe I'm going to make an attempt to spend part of it on an online chat.

    Thats just where you need to see if there are any other MP's in SJU and you can all get together and join the chat.

    It is in the thread for New York, Chicago, and DC. They have not put up the meetup, but you can RSVP for DC in the general thread for next weekend.

    Thanks Tommy, sorry for the confusion. I didn't see it in the MeetUp calendar but I probably didn't look hard enough.

    So if I post good content, but don't attend Chat, I can't be included in the prize pool?

    Oh, yeah! Posting remotely is so much easier to accomplish.

    There is that bridge, you know. ;)

    Real Seattlites abhor that bridge.

    What? Me worried? (Borrowed from Alfred E. Newman). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_E._Neuman

    tommy777, now that there's a 5 Guys in Greenwich Village and the AA food court at LGA, I'm not worried.

    Is there some special corner "the chat" is happening?

    I log in and get into the lobby but all I see is/was tommy777 and I left on the side. What gives??

    ETA: Never mind. It's finally happening minutes after I posted.
