PalmTalk Names?

17 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

One of my contributions to the IPS Biennial in Rio de Janiero, Brazil will be printing up your name tags. So I have a question for you PalmTalk attendees: in addition to your name, would you also like your PalmTalk name on your name tag? For some of us, this is not an issue; my name is Kim, and my PalmTalk name is Kim -- no confusion there. But if your name is Arnold and we know you here as The Palminator it might be helpful so your online friends can identify you.

If you have a preference one way or the other, please send me a message!

Thanks, and see you in Rio!

Cheers,

Kim

Kim,

That's a great idea! For some reason I don't believe I need "bgl" on my nametag! :mrlooney: But if you want to add it, I have no objections!

It's become a tradition at the Biennial welcome dinner for the IPS President to ask the participants from different countries to stand up, one country at a time, and each U.S. state as well. In Costa Rica I decided to add one unique group to this tradition: PalmTalk Forum members, and I intend to continue with that tradition in Rio, so be prepared! :)

Great idea, Bill! We could stand "you" up in the lobby and after touring each day everyone could decorate the cutout with momentos from the day -- you know, palm leaves, hat, seeds, t-shirt, beads, shells, speedo... I can't guarantee it would make it back to you in the same condition it left -- might be some autographs and lipstick smears on it... :rolleyes:

That would really make Bill rethink his entire strategy of missing out on this great event! :lol:

It really sounds great, BS...

Hey Bo, is there still a room for 4 people available at the Windsor Hotel? I'm sure Bill won't dare to leave the triplet ranch hands in California this time... :D:D

I think we might be able to "squeeze them in"! :lol: But, on a serious note - today is February 6th. Registration will close four days from now. February 10th is the last day to register. After that, no more registrations will be accepted. It's now or never!

Well, not quite. We need to get the final list to the hotel by Monday morning, Rio time. For all practical purposes, that means final deadline Sunday. So, if anyone is still seriously interested they would need to get in touch with Jim Cain right away. Tomorrow, Sunday, would be the VERY last opportunity.
