I've had this idea before, but the recent exploits of TAKKDD have solidified my idea that it might actually be possible: The First Annual Sleuth Convention. Why not?

The ideal place would, of course, be the mecca of it all--Boulder, Colorado. But if Ben & Sunny don't want all the hoopla so close to home, anywhere else would be fine as well. We could plan it a few months out so that people have time to plan up & save for airfare, etc. Those who are interested can come and meet those they know (and don't know) from Sleuth.

Want even more fun? What if everyone dressed up like a character from Sleuth (your character, the butcher, the lady with the magnifying glass, Larry the Toe, etc)?

Would anyone besides me & Moonshh be interested? Or is this a totally lame idea?

LOL Balash, I hope there is heating in that barn. And I think det. Fresh should exchange her summer shoes for snow boots.

I think lots of smaller gatherings, will be an automatic step for a big get together. It would function as a reunion.

If someone is ever in the neighbourhood of the Netherlands. It is quite easy to meet up with Reda and myself, although we never met, we pretty much live in each others back yard.

A way in which I see people a lot, is that they make sure they have a stopover on their way to some place else. I have done plenty of short get togethers at an airport.

I think first things first, figuring out where everyone lives. I would be willing to stick it in to HTML, if Ben would be willing to put it on the site. People that want to disclose their RL location, can do so. Those that don't don't.

Out of hiding to put in my opinion- IF a meeting happens, I WANT TO KNOW! I will totally show up for that! I would love to meet everyone!

I think, since there are people from all over the world, there should be a meeting in EACH of the sleuth citites, at the same time...NY, London, Shanghai & Delhi....that way people can attend the one closest to them

I have been to several gatherings for another game that I play online and they are always great fun, they started off small but got to be huge and we formed a great online community because of it. I have been to Cambridge and London in the UK, Winnipeg in Canada, NYC here in the states and even hosted some small ones with the local people that play right here in Cleveland. In fact there was a movie (documentary) made about it that is beginning to show at film festivals. You can check it out at www.stoners.ca. I guess my point is, I would love to go to a sleuth gathering

HA! I knew sleuth and the stone had to intersect in more ways than one!
