[ Gaia Get Together ]

Basically, it’ll give us gaians a chance to meet other people from Gaiaonline at the convention, and talk about all things Gaia, such as current plots, market place values, quests, battle systems and anything and everything!

The GGT PICNIC(Gaia Get Together)

Time: 12:30
Place: The entrance to the Excel center, between the help desk and the entrance doors


Here's the meet up details for all those who are planning to come along to the GGT. To those of you not going to Expo, I'm sorry this email wasn't meant to make you feel bad.

Meet Up Details
We shall be meeting just inside the main entrance of the Excel as normal, between 12:30 and 14:00 on the Saturday. From there we will either head out the front to the little forest area that doesn't seem to get used much or we shall head further in to the Excel building towards the other (quieter) end, depending on the weather.

As this meet will hopefully be a picnic I would like to request that people either bring something along or put some money into the proverbial pot and we'll send someone to the cheap corner shop or all go.

Peace and chocolate my friends, see you at Expo..
