Last meeting of 2008 - OKgamers Meeting - 11/23/08

(1/5) > >>

About Meetings - OKgamers - is a site for gamers in Oklahoma.  As a result, we gather together and have meetings to get feedback and input from local gamers and staff as to where we should go with situations, etc.    (Should you attend? See "WHO" below.)

About This Meeting
As the last meeting - this needs to serve to clear up any 2008 efforts, and answer questions people have.  Think - tieing up loose strings, and getting ready to move into our planning for 09.  (09 planning Meeting - on a Sunday, 12/21st - 1/18 area lol, staff reviewing dates now.)

WHEN: November 23rd, 2008 - Sunday, 1pm
WHERE: Downtown Joe Momma's Pizza
112 S. Elgin
Tulsa, OK 74120
[ Google Maps Link ]

Anyone interested in the points being discussed.
New to the site?  This is a great way to find out what goes on behind the scenes, and how to get more involved.
STAFF - Are encouraged to attend if possible.
NO HALOEZ - this is not a "push your game needing more events" meeting.  This is about OKgamers - the site and our efforts, not a pitch your event meeting Smiley

Not in the Tulsa area and can't make it?  We'll do our best to have it streamed online for out of towners.  Check this thread for a link to the broadcast.  If we have problems with the resturants wireless, etc, we won't be able to post, but will do our best.

Fair warning - we run this with a professional or business attitude.  Fun? Sure.  But we keep things on track as we rarely do these, and need to be productive.

IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING THE 09 MEETING - TRY AND MAKE THIS ONE TOO - as part of 'tieing up strings' is getting people into the curve, and ready to think forwards, and not backwards.  We've given 3 weeks on this, so please ask off work, etc Wink

1pm - Settle in, order food and get past introductions.
1:15pm - A brief history of OKgamers, and what we are currently doing
1:30pm - Start the meeting points
4 to 5pm - finish up.  If we have alot to discuss, and people interested in going longer, we may.  It's all about getting the points covered.

What? ? ? ? ? I thought everything was about Haloez? omg my life is out of order now. Shaken to it's very foundation. 0_0

And downtown? =/ *doesn't like going downtown*


Well it's off 1st and Elgin, and Elgin is easy.  It's super easy / we can carpool / caravan / etc.

Repeat after me:
Hwy 51 (the 'ba') towards downtown.
Take the 75 north exit, but do not merge.
Immediately take the exit on your right, to 7th street.

Once your off the ramp and on the street, the first cross street you'll have to stop at is Elgin.  Turn Right.

Joe Momma's will be about 5 blocks down, on your left.  SIMPLE!

BA to downtown, right onto 75, immediately right again onto 7th.  Right onto Elign, Joe's on your left.




This will be at downtown Joe Momma's!  It's a great location, and we'll have both wifi, and good [email protected]#
