Since footballs over the weekends are boring so i was wondering how many people are from state college and want to do something one weekend?

Pitt is pretty close.
I don't give a crap about the Pitt/Penn State rivalry.

I'd be interested in a Pennsylvania meetup. State College or Harrisburg or York

State college, harrisburg, or york would all be relevant to my interests. especially harrisburg, since that's what i'm closest to.

Philly is only a short jog away. I've driven to Philly to watch a MOVIE (from York)

I'm down for a state college meet if I can find some work to get some moneys to pay for the gas. I love the roads (okay, ROAD) from York to State College. Some of the most fun mountain blasting you can have on the east coast IMO. God knows I've driven there for less ("So there's this pizza place in State College...")

I probably wouldn't drive to philly, as I am in Pittsburgh.
State College is close enough. York: more possible than philly but less possible than SC.

Then you'd be lying. The only hot girls in York as far as I can tell are INCREDIBLY STUPID, and to my knowledge there's only one place in the city where you can buy Bawls. Unless you want to get in touch with Allen Na and broker up a pallet of the damned things. God I miss that. Endless cases of Bawls.

who said they'd be from york? I live in hanover and my girlfriend lives in lancaster. York is the filthy STD of the southcentral PA.
And I have allen's number, so i could.
But i have a contact at bawls headquarters in florida. they sponsor my TV show. I can get bawls by the case VERY fast.

Both dates are equally likely or unlikely.
I usually don't know my weekend plans until the Thursday of that weekend.

Old Main or hub lawn sounds great....but first...are there more than two of us? I think I have a friend who might be interested, but everyone else I know is like "you went to cambridge to meet up with some fans of a webcomic?! did you get raped?!"

so...yeah. haha

April 21-25 is finals week and I am on duty (RA here).
Graduation is April 27th.
I'm travelling and will be GONE April 31st.

So that time frame is pretty much shot.

Oh shoot. I have RA duty that weekend from Thursday night until Monday morning.
No biggie if I don't make it. It looks like there is a lot of support for this anyway.

What about the Star Trek exibit that's coming to the Franklin Institute?

Can save $7 a person if we can get 15 peeps. I can bring 5.

I'm new to the forum and was honestly curious if a PA meetup ever actually happened. I am from north-central PA (25 minutes from the NY border), so any of the suggested places is a horrendous drive for me, but if I could plan it, say, two weeks in advance I think it would be worth it. Also, do I get bonus points for being female?
