Michigan Glitches! Let's meet up!

Today on Global we found a pile of us all over Michigan: Detroit, Ypsi, Lansing, etc.  

Whose up for a meet-up?   We can try to pick some place relatively central, perhaps on an afternoon.  Nearby Glitches can carpool, perhaps.

If there's enough interest across the state, we could split up east & west side [and then rumble like West Side Story?].

I'm thinking sometime late October / Early November.  Who is in?

  • It'll have to be a weekend because of classes for me - but if anyone's around Ypsi I can carpool. I've got a minivan. :)

  • I'm up for it. Theres a bit of a catch, as I don' t have a car. I don't want to say on the Forum, my exact location....but...I'm in Wayne County about a 20 min. drive from the Detroit Metro Airport, but thats not exspressway drive time. Other than that as we work out more details just let me know :) I'll do what i can to help, organize or what have you.

  • No way, I'm totally in Michigan! I'm half way between Detroit and Ann Arbor. Maybe we should start a group for us totally awesome Mitten folk.

  • I'm more mid-state, but grew up in the Northern Detroit suburbs and my parents are still in that area aka assuming I'm not already booked I would love to join in and could do the Metro area ;)

  • Not sure how I missed this post the first time round, then was away on vaca...I'm just N of the D and would love to have a Michigan meetup of glitches. 

    I know of a couple others that haven't posted here that are in MI as well. 

    It might be fun to meet up in Ann Arbor or East Lansing so we're all traveling a bit.  Maybe a Saturday or Sunday coffee shop meetup so we can wifi it!

  • I could totally do Lansing sometime! That would be fun. I need to remember to check this.

  • A Lansing area meet would completely rock! We need to figure out a date, time, and place :D

  • This is a FANTASTIC idea! I would love to meet the Michigan Glitchen population. M-I Glitch: Represent!!  I'm in northern Oakland County, but am currently without car... What I'm trying to say is that I have had all my shots and do not bite... Too hard, at least. Unless we can teleport to our meet-n-greet, I will be needing a ride.

    ETA: coffeesnob1968@gmail.com, marie@xoxoluv.com, coffeesnob on facebook, coffeesnob on skype

    I'd love for it to be at or near Starbucks. ROFL

    What..? I wasn't joking.  >.> 

    Do we have a tentative idea of when this will be happening? Oh, and I think that someone mentioned us starting a Mitten-Folk group. GREAT idea! Who would like to be an administrator with me?

    *Mitten Folk Meeting Place*  ...or something

    Okay, okay... I don't *have* to be an administrator. lol  But the group is a great idea!  :D

  • Lansing would be perfect for me!!!!

  • Alright, we clearly wanna do this, someone needs to pick a place!
    Posted 7 years ago by Aliera Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I don't know the Lansing area well enough.  Unless someone can suggest a place, I suggest something like the Crack Barrel off 96 in Okemos.

  • That sounds pretty central.  Coffee, I could probably give you a lift as I'm in Royal Oak.
    Posted 7 years ago by FlatEarther Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I'm in Kzoo area and potentially interested!

  • Moose, would you please make a Group, invite us all in so we can discuss dates and details quickly and a little more privately?
    Posted 7 years ago by FlatEarther Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Count me in too! I am Metro Detroit but would prefer the private group idea as well.

  • Yeah, I mean, Giants forbid that people NOT from Michigan crash this party!!!

    WTF, people. It's a Glitchens gathering, all are welcome!

  • Im moving to Michigan......lol

  • Moose, creating a group will allow us to give more info privately about our locations for those who don't wish everyone to know. Those who are interested would still see this thread and decide if they are interested or not. A group link could be added here and then people could join the group.
