20 April 2024 - Tampa Meet-up

:world_map: CITY/REGION: Tampa Bay Area
:round_pushpin: MEETUP PLACE: Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa-Nothwest Oldsmar,
4017 Tampa Road, Oldsmar, FL 34677
:calendar: DATE: April 20, 2024
:alarm_clock: TIME: 12:00 pm EST
:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: There will be a table for Postcrossers within the Tampa Postcard Club.
The Postcard Club meets and begins at ten.
But we have the meet-up at noon because many times people are coming from the (407) and I-4 has traffic!
Bring your custom signature stamp (as many do) or multiple pens. I bring like 10 gel pens and sign cards in multiple colors.
The meet-up is generally an hr long and there will probably be 100 postcards divided among us.
Yes, these postcards are free to all in attendance.

:point_up: Please make sure to read the Meetup Guidelines before signing up for a meetup.

I’d love to attend!

Finished designing the meetup cards! Excited to show everyone!

Awesome!

I am new to Postcrossing this year and have questions about meet ups. I’m not sure what to expect and what all I need to do to come.

Hi Raigan! Welcome! I’m newer to Postcrossing as well but have been to a few meetups. :slight_smile: I think Candis mentioned most of this in her post, but we pass around and sign meetup postcards (these will be provided, so just bring some pens to sign!). If you have any postcards you want to trade, you can bring these, too! The Tampa meetups are at the Sunshine Post Card Club show and sale, so you can also walk around afterwards and look through/purchase postcards if you want to. The postcard show has a $3 admission.

Candis and Haley, I am so sorry that I cannot be there on 4/20 — I double-booked myself in an art workshop and I’ve already paid for it! I had my Saturdays mixed up.

I am excited to see Haley’s cards, and I’d love to buy an “allotment” of signed cards - depending on how many people show up~ so just tell me what I owe you and I’ll send you a check if you’ll give me your address? Or, if you have lots of people in attendance and can’t do that, I will understand.

I read in the Sunshine Postcard Club’s newsletter that Leah Schall just bought 37,000 postcards, so she will be selling cards in certain boxes for .25 or 5 for $1

Really hate to miss this, so see you all in October.

Thanks!

Also, just have to say to anyone who has been looking at this post:

C’mon out and join the postcrossers at the meetups! It’s fun to be with other postcrossers and hear their “mail tales.”

450 people have viewed this post, so even if only 5% come, that is 22 people -

Don’t be shy, y’all!

Hello! What should I expect for this event? Are post cards for sale? (What’s the average cost) I ordered a custom stamp to bring!! This is my first event.
