Ok the meeting is a GO!
Date: Sunday August 3rd - Tustin Marketplace - Tustin, CA
Time: High Noon
Location: Ikea parking lot (Ikea is closed now and the lot is always empty)
I chose Tustin Marketplace for a few reasons. The first being this is the First meeting I/We are setting up and there is no way to tell what the show will be. TM is a big place and easy to find. The Ikea lot is always empty these days since the store closed down. There are 4 fast food places right there you can walk to and get food.
I also want people to know that this event is not related to Dezertrangers, Jordansrealm or any other affiliation or website at this point. This is just a group of guys/girls that wanna get together and checkout some trucks, chat and grab some food.
TM is a very busy place with lots of people and stores. There is also a regular police force cruising around so please be mature and dont cause trouble. With this being non related to anyone or anything if you do do something stupid its all on you but please dont be the guy that ruins everyones day because you have to show up doing a burnout or something stupid.
Also, if you represent a company, clothing line, another website, forum, club , crew , etc please do not promote, sell ,distribute, pass-out or give away anything that will make this meeting into a marketing ploy. Right now we want to keep this very casual and dont want to make people feel unwelcome because someone is trying to make them buy their stuff or visit their site. Just so you know we dont want this not just because of personal choice but legal reasons.
I think this could lead to great things and better meetings. Depending on how this one goes we can organize another and mix up locations. There will not be a set place to eat or a group meeting or anything like that just show up and hangout. There is no ending time just try and show around Noon and have a good time.

I have a feeling this meeting is going to be very short. People are not figuring things out. I am getting tons of emails from people asking if they can setup EZ-UP's and booths and can they pass out shirts and cards ad so forth. This parking lot is PRIVATE PROPERTY and is owned by the Tustin Community. We are simply using the lot for parking while we all get lunch at one of the FFood places and hangout. Please do not turn this into anything that is going to make it end it 5 minutes like setting up an EZ-UP. If you want shade go to Taco Bell and take a break from the sun and have a coke.
