With the coronavirus putting a major damper on the entire world's travel plans, it has been hard to meet people and enjoy the experience of life. It's time, are you ready? I am fresh off of a short jaunt to Las Vegas and am pumped to get back into the touching of faces and exploring new places! So let's do it!
Several months ago, there was a conversation in the Castle about if and when we were to have another Block Party, where it should be. The general consensus was to have it here on my home turf, in Tennessee! I'm pretty thrilled with the thought and am aiming at our touristy, but not too citified - Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg has a ton of things to do and might as well be one giant amusement park with delicious foods, interesting fun things to do, and, it's not far from some great scenery for the nature lovers!
Let's aim for September. I propose on having it the weekend of or after Labor Day, but put it to all of you to choose exactly. September here is quite moderate, usually around 80 degrees F and up near the mountains, will have a gentle breeze coming down to keep you from sweating your balls or tits off. If it is too hot, there are several water parks to take the kids to and even some great indoor wave pools and plenty of air conditioned buildings.
About posting every day up until a week before the actual event. I don't say this lightly. I intend to give everyone that comes some spending money. How? All the HBD from this post on, will be put into savings (gaining a little interest along the way) and split evenly between all the people that show up. So, let's say we average 15$ a post. That's 3.75$ every day into the refund pool. That's a minimum of 630 HBD to be split. If 5 people show up, that's 126 HBD for everyone. Maybe ten will show up and we'll average 20$ a post or get smashed a few times for hundreds, who knows? But I want to be able to say thank you in some way (aside from a cool goodie bag - maybe we'll try for some sponsors again and rent a place for speakers?) to those that make the trip.
If you remember The Block Party I, we had a small group of communities come through and add to the fun of it all. @guiltyparties threw some #veterans merch and @freewritehouse handed out some goodies. Other people brought their own fun things like @dreemsteem and her cool pirate challenge. We'll see how it unfolds over the next few weeks and that will dictate better the actual spots we will target (if any) as 'mandatory' and if there will be any kind of 'cover charge' for actual event purposes.
I'd love to see maybe @thebeardflex come over and share a pizza from The Magic Mushroom. Be sweet to lock down a section in there and have a presentation! Or @psyberx come out and play/sponsor a game of lazer tag or something. Maybe someone like @raymondspeaks from @brofi will want to come out or @josephsavage will give us another sweet presentation? Perhaps someone from #silvergoldstackers will come demonstrate a pour or two? Who knows? If you have an idea and want to work with us, I'm not hard to find and neither are any of the fam. We're sociable creatures and - look forward to seeing you in September!!!
