    Okay the following members are going to be there:

    1. Moi -- yes I finally worked up the courage to go, even though I'm not that great. :banana:

    2. KiwiMambo

    3. aragonh

    4. Boriken

    5. Raggaemambo

    6. jamaicanspice

    Let's all try to meet. Exchange phone numbers and the like. I figure even if the congress is too big for a little fish like me it would be fun to meet you and anyone else who comes.

    I'm planning on trying to see the show "Forever Tango" and also attending one of the milongas (AT dances), so if any of you want to join me for that? Try the wild side? :wink:

    Anyone else going to be there?

    updated to add addition attendees: wed. 18th 2:08pm est

    Thursday night / Friday. I still have to talk to the boss. Depends on if she will let me take the day off. Too close to classes starting to take any more time off. :(

    FYI: I'm planning on attending congress Friday night so perhaps that might be one good time for people to meet. :)

    did I forget to mention I was a seventh day adventist so my Sabbath starts at sunset Friday night and ends at sunset on Saturday night? yeh, so that means Friday night activities are out for me. any other time is great!! :D

    I fly into JFK Friday at 4pm, so I should be checked into the Hilton by 6 or 7pm. I leave Monday afternoon.

    We could meet for coffee/drink at the Hilton later in the evening, when we need a break from all that dancing :)

    Any ideas on how we can identify each other?

    I might see you guys there. If I end up going, it'll be for Friday and Saturday night. Work and all will determine if I'm able to go by Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully I'll see you all there!

    Wear shirts emblazoned with "df"? Having something unique would help, I guess. Also meeting at a particular place within a place... I'm sure we will figure something out. :)

    which one of the evenings? Friday night or Saturday night? my flight reaches JFK at around 8:30pm Friday evening.

    hmmmmmmmm......there's a thought....let's meet at the airport!! HAHAHHHA kidding :D but seriously where should we meet and specifically when? I wont be doing any dancing Friday night you guys...it's my Sabbath :oops:

    In terms of identifying ourselves.....why don't we PM each other with a suggestion...I have one.....I'm PMing KiwiMambo with it now.... 8)

    I've uploaded my picture so you all know what I look like.
    Let's meet in the Lobby of the Hilton and have a drink together.
    We just need to decide on the evening.
    Looks like Friday is out for JamaicanSpice.
    I am able to meet Sat or Sun evening.
    What evening works for others?

    The hotel is on Avenue of Americas (sixth ave) and corner of 53rd street... Hmmm, let me double check... I wouldn't bet on there being just one...
