I will be there. This will be my first meetup.
Ordering my stamp today.
Let me know if there is anything else I need to do.
Thank you


If you would like to bring some postcards to swap do so. As there will be a pile in the middle of the table for you to trade and take home.

I look forward to meeting you.

Hi Everyone!
Oh my gosh! I’m so excited. I’ll be there!

P.S. What a fun day to pick! (Eclipse)

Are y’all staying at the hotel overnight? Are there activities planned for Sunday?


Looking forward to it! I will be there!

I’ll be there again- had a blast last year! - Laura

I am excited for another year of meetup event! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Is the meetup the whole day of the show? I probably can’t make it until noon or 1?

Sorry all. My husband did not want me to go. Perhaps next year. I was really looking forward to going.

It was a fun event and I had a blast meeting fellow postcrossers! I got some great postcards at the event too!

Hi everyone!
It was so great meeting everyone! :grin: I also got great cards and gifts! Thank you everybody.
I hope to see yall again next year! I’d love to meet up again.

Hello everyone
It was such a pleasure getting to know each of you. What a great meetup and it was my first, I so glad I was with such wonderful people who I share this awesome hobby. My favorite was the chit chat and seeing everyone’s process of sending postcards. I did stop by Buc-ee, what a great tip.
Hope to see you again

Hi everyone.
This is Demaris’s daughter, Chris. Mom has been in the hospital and is sorry she was unable to attend the postprocessing meet up this time. She is on the mend. She hopes to see everyone in March.
As always, Happy Postprocessing.
