California Macross Launch Celebration?

Recommended Posts

Are any California Macross fans interested in having some kind of party to celebrate the (sadly fictional) launching of the SDF-1 Macross next month?

Could be good. Maybe we could find a good park to have a BBQ in or something of that nature?

Bay area isn't that far. Sucks it is in February which it is Winter. I'll take a 3 day weekend when some storm hits between here and there.

May as well not be winter. It's like 70 degrees out and not a raindrop for weeks.

I go first for throwing Exo's SDF-1 model, LOL. Well, so far, it seems like a regular hangout. Not a lot of interest for Socal. Does anyone want to do this?

I'm still definitely down for a nocal thing. Can we agree on a location? Obviously I'd prefer San Francisco what with living here and all, but I mean, I commute to San Jose for work ANYWAY...

You must have the best living situation ever to endure that.

I think that one of us NorCal-ers needs to step up to the plate, organize something and state it here to make it official. I personally would preffer San Jose because it is closer to Santa Cruz than SF.

I live right next to Golden Gate Park and less than a mile from the ocean, have cheap rent (for SF anyway) and get paid 20 grand more than my last job, so for now, anyway, it works.

Well, I am down with San Jose, like I said, but I definitely do not have a place to host it in San Jose. I could see if my podcastmate Mike/Robot Bastard who lives in SJ is interested. I will ask him about it.

I'd be up for it possibly. I'm in Modesto. SF or my hometown of SJ shouldn't be a problem.

Note that the 2/22/09 date is merely what they're celebrating in Japan. It's seems more a Macross F promo though as I understand it, since the date appears chosen to tie in with it (Their event is titled, "Macross: The Super Dimension Space Launching Ceremony ~It's Really 2009 Already…It's 2/22 (Nyan Nyan Nyan), Deculture!~." )

The Compendium has the actual exact date as 2/07/09, which is a Saturday. If so, it might make sense to have it on the canon day, and not one chosen simply because of a pun in the date. Besides, 2/22/ is the week before Wondercon. :ph34r:

Shame we missed the first flight of the VF-1A. ;)

Anyone else planning on watching the series "as it happens" this year?

I could never do anything to rival the original (yet), I'd rather sit back with a beer and watch the original. :lol:
