I would like to attend. Do I need to sign up.

Hi Randy,

Welcome to the Madison meetup! You can sign up by indicating above that you are “✓ Going” above in the blue rectangle.

I can maybe attend, how soon would you need to know for ordering meet-up cards? Thanks

No worries about that. I always order more than enough cards, so even if you wait until the day of the meetup, you will be able to get cards :slight_smile:

Ok thanks! I’ll see if the rest of the Wisco family can/wants to go. We haven’t been to Madison in awhile so waking around there and meeting other postcrossers would be fun!

Great! We’d love to see you there!

I hope to be there. If I can’t, can I buy a meetup postcard?

Hi @Carol1,
Yes, of course! Cards will be available in about 2 weeks and are only 25 cents! :slight_smile:

The Spring Meetup card 2023 edition is now available. Well, it’s at the printers but I should have them by 9th April.
They are 25 cents each and you can message me with your order. They will be available for pickup at the Meetup. There won’t be time to mail them out in advance.

My wife, Maria, is planning on attending also.
Thank you.

I would like to order 40 postcards for the Spring Meetup.
Thank you,

Sounds good! I’ve got you both down with 40 cards :+1:

Meetup cards arrived sooner than expected! I have them with me and can mail them out to those of you who would like them before the meetup!

I’ll be there! I just booked my hotel. I’ll take 20 cards, if there’s enough left!

Hi Matt!
Glad to hear you’ll be able to attend! I will have 20 cards for you to pick up at the meetup. Let me know right away if you want them mailed to you in advance though and I can do that.

Can I bring a friend who is interested is Postcrossing?

@BubbieBoi Yes, of course! The more the merrier!

Thank you! My name is Signe and my best friend is Roger. I hope he can join us but I do plan on being there.
