Any of the dates work for me at this point. Can SF make it for any of the dates?
Watch out NYC if he can!

Maybe we can make some DD/DDF Yarmulkahs as a door prize...

Or, DD luggage tags, perhaps?

I am not sure yet what dates I am available (I might go away presidents day weekend, or the next)
But I will keep an eye on the responses and try to make it work out to whatever works best for everyone else.

Or do we need to find some sponsors?

I'm reading this thread and I can't help but think of this prank call.

Nothing personal Dan, I mean I would love to join you for dinner / night out or whatever this is but I just can't see myself spending $25 for the honor...

I think you missed the point, you're coming to meet all these people you see posting on the forum. Now, since it's DansDeals, it would only be right to fly him down, as a token of our appreciation. You (ostensibly) benefit from this forum too, so why not chip in?

I understand what the point is, (well kinda, I wasn't looking at it as a token of appreciation, rather a logistical necessity, but either way) I just can't see myself spending the $$$

I mentioned appreciation, not logistics :P

I'm confident we'll have our 10-15 people even without you.

Really? I thought you're gonna come to my house and drag me kicking and screaming...

The first mention of appreciation in this thread is the post I responded to.

Wouldn't surprise me. And hey, you never know, I may decide to fork over after all...

Not a bad idea.  Actually made a few in Geulah.  Where do they make then in NYC?

I'm reading this thread and I can't help but think of this prank call.

Well then this is a bargain then, $25 instead of $2,500 ;)
Me, I'm surprised people would want to have dinner with me, let alone fly me in from CLE to have dinner with them.  ;D

Anyway I think the point is with the amount of time the hardcore people spend on here it would be fun to put a face to everyone.  It was well worth it for me to drive out to the airport, pay for parking there, camp out at the gate (first time he said received that service...did that for my wife when we dated and it was worth going through security just to see the pleasantly surprised expression on her face!), have a drink at the PC with our own SF, and make a nice dinner just to put finally a face to Superflyer!
But to each their own, either people will be interested or they won't be.

  I offered to print them if someone designed them.

Any graphic designers out there?

What time on Sunday could you get to NYC?  You may have to fly direct from BRU instead of via some airport in the north pole, FRA, IAH, etc.

Do any of the dates I posted work for you?
