    Actually, that landing between street level and turnstile level might be a good place for everybody to assemble. If you get off the train and go through the turnstiles, you see a flight of stairs and two escalators right in front of you. Up you go to the landing - I think that'd be a good place to meet up, then we figure out what to do and head on up to the street from there.

    If you take the bus into one of the tunnels adjacent to the subway platforms, just look around for the Dunkin' Donuts - the aforementioned stairs/escalators are right next to it. How's that sound?

    As for the concert, depends on how late in the afternoon it is. Next train after the 6:35 isn't until 11:15. ;)

    Here's a map of the inside of Harvard Square T Stop:

    As for the concert, I don't know any details. All I know is that there will be live music from 10 am to 6 pm, and most likely Third Eye Blind will be on after 3ish.

    EDIT: I should mention, the free show is over at the Hatchshell. What's the hatchshell? It's that big thing by the river where we took the VWT pics. Closest T Stop is Charles on the Red Line, or Arlington on the Green Line. It's going to be wicked crowded.

    I can't make the meet. I have a paper I need to write for school and a test the monday I get back that I need to study for. Maybe I'll be able to make it to the next meet.

    I cannot make this meet.

    3 things are trying to pull me towards them on Saturday:
    1.) BR Meet
    2.) Andrea and the 3EB concert
    3.) A nice 20% of my grade on the line.

    My video class final project is due on Wednesday. The only day I can record my footage is Saturday.

    I'll be at the May meet (assuming it's not moved away from the 3rd Saturday!)

    Roy

    Maybes:
    Ed
    Dex

    If you're on the maybe list, could you please post if you know that you can or cannot come? If I missed anyone, feel free to smack me and then post a correction. :)

    Good luck with your project Tony.

    EDIT: I suppose I should be all fair and equitable and wish Scott well on his trip and Leah well on her paper and test. Slightly severely stressed out at the moment - and I've always been bad at multitasking thoughts - so sorry guys. :)

    Unfortunately, it looks like I'm not going to be able to make it (again). I have to work 12 hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday.

    I will be there where exactly are we meeting?
    Is it still inside Harvard station?

    As per the other Chris's instructions we'll be meeting at the landing at the top of the stairs/escalators he described above, inside the T station. :)

    Our usual get-together time is noon, and nobody has indicated any differently. HOWEVER, given to-day's weather, be advised - we may very well wind up going to our backup plan at the Aquarium if the skies don't dry up by then.

    Edit - H-Hour is in 20 hours and 41 minutes, so if anybody's changing their attendance status, speak now or forever hold your peace!

    I just had a personal situation come up.

    In case I may not be able to make it I will call your cell tomorrow Roseanna.

    If I don't make it I will be at next month's meet for sure.

    If we proceed with the Harvard meeting, I will probably show up briefly, though I won't have long as I have call for a concert at one. If it's backup plan, I'm a no-show. Don't wait for me either way, as I can't promise anything; I could be asked to show up early for call.

    The meet time is indeed noon. And the forecast currently shows NO rain for tomorrow. A sunny day! So I doubt we'll need the backup plan.

    Chris, that's fine, just give me a call if you can't make it. :)

    Paul, if you have to be somewhere at 1pm, are you sure it isn't too much of a hassle for you to meet us at noon? I don't want to make your schedule too crazy. :)

    Well, the 12 hour part isn't fun, but the $20 an hour OT is nice. :D

    Will, Jim, Joe - did we miss you? We waited at the T stop until about 12:40pm. It was just me and Chris^2 today. We had fun, but I wish more of you could have made it. It was a perfect day for this kind of meet.

    A few topics were casually discussed:
    1) more t-shirts, including a new Rebels shirt (since there are newer members that don't have any), and a Vader Tour shirt
    2) officially making the New Jersey Order our new sister FanForce; I still encourage you all to keep in touch with our PA friends, but since they're no longer in FanForce it would be nice to have a new sister FF...they're a really cool bunch of folks and I hope we get to spend more time with each other over the summer
    3) advertising for the Rebels; I know we've talked about it and have probably done it in the past, but there are lots of places in Harvard Square that we saw today where a flyer for the Rebels would get noticed

    We'll talk more about these things soon. I hope to see more of you at the next meet. :)

    Also, since only three of us showed up, I guess I'll pop the question about next month here. Everybody cool with a Boston Common hangout on May 15 if the weather's nice?

    Well I missed the Forge Park train so I had to drive over to the Attleboro station. I didn't pull in to Back Bay until 12:40 or so. There was no one there when I got off the subway. I walked around Harvard Square hoping to run into someone. I even checked the burger joint. I ended up watching the band play for about a half hour, then headed home. I was there, just late.

    We ended up eating at the Green House Cafe because it had a shorter line than Bartley's. This is why I volunteer my phone number for meets, in case someone has trouble finding us. Even if you don't have a cell phone, there is usually a payphone around somewhere. Sorry we missed you. :(

    Well I wasn't going to drive home and get it. :D I would have been more late than I was. No biggie. I pulled up right as the train was leaving. Damn Halo. I left late because I was getting in to the game.
