Penguin Convention. From what I am told it is a gathering of Goodjers at some place Oily Penguin decides upon where he gathers video evidence used to blackmail them later by providing alot of liquor. And some games might be played as well.

We discuss our abandonment of pencils. I prefer Zebras myself, but business pen owners out there may disagree with my choice. Some choice topics:

"The lack of erase"
"Writing in space"
"The health risks of dabbing your tongue"
... and more when times and locations are finalized.

We'll be having a scribble tournament that will test how fast one can empty an entire ink cartridge. There will be also drawings for ink illustrations in line with our silent auction.

It's short for peniscon

I'll be doing my best to make it out.

Subscribing to this post, because there is a small chance that Dr_Awkward and I would make the trip to Ohio (one of my best friends lives there and I would love to see her)..so depending on dates and babies..it is a possibility.

We usually do a Slap and Tickle in October, and we may or may not do it this year...babies are really cramping our style on that with noise and what not and the set up of our house, sadly.

If you do, that would certainly make *my* October decision easier

Everyone wins!

I'm pondering this.

It is up in the air right now...we love having the slap and tickle, but with babies who will be a year and a half, and have a 7 pm bedtime, having 20 or so people and the noise makes it really tough..but I am still trying to work it so it can maybe still happen...and heck, it doesn't HAVE to be on IGWJD even...so if people wanted to do that somewhere else and then we could plan a gathering on another day..we are still talking/working things out

Yup.

Bonus: I have Founder approval for a date but I'm still working if that jives with the location. We should have something soon.

Do you have a founder approval of the location?

We run the dates by Certis and Elysium so we can have it on IGWJD every year, location is completely up to us.

There's certainly one place that we're looking at that everyone approves of, but there's a lot of details that need worked out before that can happen. Also, we've managed to pick a bad weekend as far as using that particular location so we'll see how it goes.

Ok, you are deciding locations, but what about city? I heard Cleveland Ohio, is that set in stone or is it somewhere in Ohio, possibly Cleveland?

That's still up in the air. At the location we're looking at (which %90 of you are already aware of and I'm being cagey about simply to entertain myself), I would put Columbus as the closest airport. But, if that doesn't happen, then probably somewhere in the Cleveland/Akron area again.

I suppose Columbus is the closest airport on the Earth's surface.

Actually, the closest airport is much, much closer than that. It just doesn't handle commercial flights.

We'll need to charter the GoodjerJet. Or perhaps ride in on Dragonback.

I'm taking donations for anyone who wants to help me buy one of these sexy little things.

KickStarter it! Offer limited flights from Cleveland to Akron if you contribute $10000. Otherwise, contributors get their name on a website and an MP3 download of the NSMike soundtrack.

arg the fuel prices on that would be ridiculous. BTW, I am driving a SUV up there, and cleveland is pretty far, something near the bottom of ohio would be awesome! but I guess something in between cleveland and some other city in ohio is ok.

If "Danger Zone" isn't on the soundtrack, we are no longer friends.

I know someone who could fly that.

I would love to learn, if only to have one of them.
