Unfortunately, the location had to be changed to Elysian Park (same area as last year), but now we have more room and now we can have a barbecue!

 

Anyone willing to bring supplies?

Looks like we'll need Buns, Meat, Drinks, Chips, etc. etc.!

Same park as last year!!!! To counter all those cons....

- we could bring battery powered camping lamps or something..at least so we could see at the end of the night to clean up.

- it was kinda good to end early cause we needed to rest up for the 2 day festivities! (and the EC people are all jet lagged)

- it won't be that hard to find this year since now we know where to go =)

 

Honestly...wherever it is...it's gonna be madd fun!

 

"Allllll that I neeeeed is this mooooomennnnnt!!!!!!!"

 

 

oh and me and the MadRaver... of course...... GOING!!!!!!! =)

Haven't attended so I cant really say.

I am definitely going to this though.

 

The video from last year looked like a pretty epic locale. No one around, huge park, bbq, tables, trees for shade. Thats just me.

I don't know too much about other parks in SoCal, but I did really like Mason Park in Irvine (if that's the one that we had the EDC 2008 pre meetup at). I vote for a park for sure either way though.

 

Cjay612 and RaverBebe will be there for sure. Drownrat is a maybe.

Studios are always no doubt the best way to go in my opinion.

I am almost positive that i will be able to make it to the premeet in 2010. I dont know how many times at edc this past year that i told myself that i shoulda planned better and tried to come early for the premeet. It kinda sucked tryin to get to meet everyone at the party.

 

And my vote is for a park or studio.

The beach would be nice cuz i have never been to a west-coast beach yet, but im plannin on bein in cali for about a week around then so ill probably get to satisfy that curiosity at any other point in time.

 

*getting butterfly's remembering the anticipation for edc '09*

My biggest problem wasn't that it was outside, but really just the ground itself.

 

It was almost entirely DIRT, which SUCKS after you drop your sticks, its impossible to get a firm grip after they've been coated in dust. The ground itself was also quite uneven, which made finding decent footing pretty hard. (not to mention my pants, which got really dirty because I was always wiping the sticks off on them)

 

2008's meetup was a good spot, nice and flat, lots of lush grass (although it was a bit muddy in some spots), plenty of space to sit and socialize or move a bit from the crowd and crack your own sticks. And although i'm not native to California, it seemed a lot easier to find.

 

Just my two cents. Oh and put meh on teh going plz.

I like Mason Park. But it's farther for people coming out of state. My 2nd choice would be a studio.

BBQ Grills are a pro.

 

If people bring food :P

 

 

I was the only one that brought burgers to the meetup. Somebody brought KBBQ too I think...but it wasn't a whole lot. If we had food I think more people would have stayed around.

:inmyopinion:

 

I vote for the beach. We could do a studio, but that's EC's thing IMO. One thing I've always loved about big SoCal meets is that they're always in really cool places such as the beach during sunset or at beautiful outdoor locations. It's always been more unique and more geared towards socialization than a studio is. The way I see it, we have 2 entire days to be cramped in packed places with loud music and lots of glowsticking at EDC, so I would honestly prefer to have the premeet somewhere outdoors and more relaxed so members can get to know each other better/socialize and not neccesarily have the prime focus on glowsticking the entire time. We have the rest of the weekend for that. I'm also a huge fan of BBQ's at all the past EDC meets and I would be sad not to see one this year if the meetup turns out to be indoors.

 

I would really prefer for the WC continue to retain its own individual meetup style at EDC rather than just imitating what the EC has done and getting a studio. There's plenty of better opportunities to use a studio when the weather is colder, say for TAO or Monster, but when LA has such beautiful beaches and warm weather this time of year I think it would be a huge waste not to take advantage of them.

I really agree on this! Well said Cody. Nice disclaimer mate, LOL :P

I haven't yet to experience a WC beach meet, and with the sunset <3 loooove.

 

Plus, relaxing and socialism in comparison with EDC, thumbs up for sure!

 

Oh, and I'm a "maybe" for this.

This was a result of poor planning. This is why I took it upon myself to plan earlier so we have a location decided and we could split up tasks and what not for more food.

 

If it's at a studio, there's no BBQ grill which means the meet-up will lose it's outdoor social bbq feel which is unique to PreEDC. That's my only gripe, otherwise I love studios.

Well poor planning and people not coming through with bringing things. I think people signed up to bring burgers, hot dogs, and buns, but then they never ended up showing......

 

Sign-Ups for stuff happened a loooong time before Pre-EDC. But nobody ever wants to sign up to bring food.
