    I'm going to build an RSVP form for non-FB users (I'll post the URL later) which will send responses to Ape and myself, so we can keep track of who's coming. It'll also have links to the studio site, directions and maps, and a running song list built from suggestions.

    Check back later.

    Do you think we should be able to pay Ape in advance? If it's left to pay when you get there he may be holding the bag for people who don't show up.

    I'm really not that concerned about it. We'll work out the money the day of, and if everybody's gotta forego a pint and pitch a little more towards the room, no big.

    But if you want to do a PayPal thing, I'll need someone who's got an account to generate the code and I'll wire it in to the signup page. I personally don't have a PP account.

    Ape? You got one? Or do you think we should just leave it to the honor system?

    And I'll add Villanova to the form response so he can reconcile responses with his FB page.

    Donny - No don't have a paypal..

    Just want to A) see how many people are coming.
    The difference in room size for 10 and for 20 is about 20 beans an hour...
    Also, because an event with 10 requires less work..

    B) Want to get some way to guarentee that you an aren't left holding the bag on the room.

    C) maybe a check to be mailed in to me or you.. something not to punish, but just so that we don't get totally burned in booking a room...

    The RSVP page is here: MLP 2009 NYC Holiday Meetup

    You can fill it out and let us know you're coming, as well as make suggestions for the song list. You non-Facebook users can sign on at that page.

    Like I told DDA in a pm, I'd like to meet the lot of you and I'm more than happy to contribute for the studio, but I'm essentially a beginner and will just enjoy watching jam and the conversation. If youse need vocals, just let me know what it is exactly you'll be playing (I saw a list back a few pages) and I'm work on my "me me me mes" I can sing some Floyd, Bad Company, Skynrd, and other shit that escapes me now, but I can't get those heavy metal screachy, high notes. Besides, I don't have the hair for that anymore. :D

    Yeah, I've tried a few times and have also gotten the #404 message. I don't want to PM people with this. I hope to meet up with you all and have a rocking time. :thumb:

    Same here. Tried to RSVP and got #404 message. Did you get my email?

    There's also 2 Facebook groups, both of which I belong to, but it's kinda confusing. Hope I can sneak away from my wife's surprise b-day party! It's only her gal friends so I think I will have nothing to do but ROCK ON! :headbanger:
