First of all, I’d like to apologize that I’ve been neglecting this blog as of late. I know most people tend to get their information about BW things from the facebook group (which now has over 370 members! WOW!), but I want this page to serve as a way of getting the word out there about gatherings, letting more people know we exist, and sharing the AMAZING photos that are taken at our meetups and photoshoots.
So, that being said, if any of you have photos from either of the CTcon meetups or any of our other events, please submit them! :D I am also always welcoming of suggestions, questions, complaints, or comments about the group both here and on facebook. (and on the Boston Whovians discussion board which will hopefully be ready for action very soon!)
NOW, ON TO THE ACTUAL POINT OF THIS POST.
THE BOSTON WHOVIANS WILL BE HOSTING AN END-OF-SUMMER PICNIC ON THE BOSTON COMMON ON AUGUST 18TH.
We will be meeting at 12:00pm in the general vicinity of the gazebo. If you are unsure of where that is, just let me know and I’ll give you directions! The picnic, like most of our events, will continue until everyone gets tired of each other and leaves. You can arrive as late and stay as early as you need to! Even if you can only pop by for a few minutes, we’d love to meet you!
Cosplay is, as always, encouraged, but not required. Photos can and will be taken in mass quantities, so remember to bring your camera!
This is a picnic, so remember to bring a blanket! More importantly, if you are able to bring any kind of food, drink, snack, or supplies please do! Just let me know what you’re bringing so I can keep track of what we need. If you have any sort of food allergies at all, please let me know so I can inform those bringing food!
ALSO, as those who have attended our meetups in the past know, we are a group with varied tastes in geekery and usually wind up discussing (or even cosplaying!) other fandoms at our events. However, for this meetup in particular, I am specifically extending the invitation to any and all BBC fans! That means Sherlockians, Merlin lovers, fans of Top Gear, Downton Abbey, and everything in between! And YES, non-Whovian cosplayers will be welcome! So pull out those scarves and jumpers!
In a way, I want this meetup to serve as a bit of a make-up for the slight disaster that was the Saturday all-BBC photoshoot at ConnectiCon, in addition to it being the “official” August meetup of the Boston Whovians. I want this to be a fun afternoon where all kinds of fans, especially those who aren’t usually able to make it to meetups, can hang out, discuss their favorite shows and actors, eat food, take silly photos, and, of course, freak out about the upcoming 7th series of Doctor Who. So, of course, I remind you all to please be courteous, welcoming, and friendly to each other during this event and ESPECIALLY be courteous to those around us.
I’m not sure how many people will be attending, as of yet (please RSVP either on the facebook event page or by sending me a message on this blog!) but if it’s as large a group as I am hoping for, we definitely don’t want the group to get a bad reputation for being disruptive! :D
I hope I’ve covered everything about what will surely be a wonderful meetup! If you have any questions at all you can ask me here on this blog or through the Boston Whovians facebook page! Please reblog this to spread the word! I can’t wait to see you all in a few weeks! Allons-y! Geronimo! The game is on! :D
