Hi all!

I know that our next Craftster Meetup in Asheville, NC hasn't happened yet, but kbrison suggested that I get this out there so that people can start making plans.  It happened and it was epic!  Time to start planning for the next meetup!

I would like to propose holding our 2020 meetup in Oahu, Hawaii sometime in late June/early July.  We have a date: July 10-12!
Craftster Clouds and Mountains lives there and I grew up there and go back every 3-5 years so I know the place well.  We will be flying into Honolulu International Airport.  We also can take a day trip or longer to the Big Island (Hawai'i) too.

There seemed to be some interest before so I thought I'd get it out there.

So why Hawaii?  Well, it's my home so I know my way around the place and I have a couple of friends from high school that still live there.  Also the locals are amazing and I think we'd have a blast there because there is so much to do: hiking, surfing, shopping at the Aloha Flea Market, snorkeling, interesting Asian and local art museums, lei making, luaus, etc.  

Here are some snaps that I took a couple of years ago.



Anyhow let's chat about it!

Mahalo! Rox

I'd be up for Hawaii!  I've always wanted to go, but never had a chance or a reason before.  sheepBlue, you up for an island adventure?

I'm so happy you posted photos so it appeared in the feed! 

I would dearly love to visit Hawaii, be with Cster peeps, and have an amazing time! (With all the local secrets.)

Those photos are beautiful. Surreal. *somebody pinch me*

Yay!  I'm so happy that there is still interest.  Joyful, so glad you like the pics.  I just grabbed the first couple of pics.  You'll see that it is even more lovely in person.  I have so many photos and I still need to make our little vacation book.  LOL.

Don't worry L&B.  Even if you can't come in person we will take you with us as we eat, shop, and craft our way in Oahu.  I'm just glad to be able to meet you finally...it really doesn't matter where.  I could meet all of you in a greasy diner and be happy.  Smiley

I hope the dates will work for us. June is the last month of school before summer holidays, exams & all that. Plus it's so nice here in summer, we usually go to our cottage then. Right about Feb is when we'd most like to go some place sunny but we'll try to make it work whenever it happens. Because HAWAII!

Figure on DH and I attending. Zalphinian visited Hawaii when she was 12 (Girl Scout trip) and has always wanted to return. Not sure that she would be able to finance the trip but I'll run this past her.
