SHE STARTED...JOY :)


These are WEST COAST TB traditions:

 

AHHHHH YES the infamous “this drink is for …..” signs. This was started by joy (pvtjoy). There was some many people that could not make it to the VEGAS II MEET UP. In honor of them joy made signs, took photos, and uploaded on to TB.  It started with just photos with just joy then as the meet ups have gained throughout the year, it was a group effort. 

 

It started with about a dozen then it would escalate to 24 or more throughout the year.  sometimes I would just clump it to one group like the “CHICKEN GROUP”, “NYE A’DAM TBs GROUP”,  and the “KC TBs”  mine are very generic compared to james (pearcetoyou)

 

Then I came up with a “MOST FURTHER TB” award.
JOE (AUSTRALIA)
I was talking about this in VEGAS with Tracy and Angel that we should have an award for that to make it fun.  I wanted the guys to wear awful “pink t-shirt” and the girls to wear funky boxers with our names who attended.   It was too late to buy a pair of boxers for Tuyen (tuyen99) who lived in Boston at the time.  I will save it for the next meet up which is the SANTA MONICA meetup.

 

The winner of that was matt (mattrilla) from UK. I found the one of the best t-shirt for him. I had to sneak off to go shopping for it. At the VEGAS II MEET UP,  Sven (svenman99) from Germany was the winner of that. Matt bought the pink t-shirt for that one.  He wanted vengeance since he had to wear the last one.  It went as far as KC, James and mark (travelman727) organized that one.
WILL'S FAREWELL CAKE
yadi (Yadilitta) was the winner of that one,  she is from Peru.  The “most further TB” ever to come to a meet up in the WEST COAST would be joe (vimessir) from Australia.



Alice (alicegourmet) started to make cookies for TBs as well. she started to do that at the SANTA MONICA MEETUP. She is so cute. She even put 2 cookies in small bags with our TB handles on it. she would start doing that for new TBs coming to LA MEET UPS she continued until that the HERMOSA MEET UP she made a yummy chocolate mousse with a the TB logo in raspberries.

 

At the VEGAS II MEET UP, it was Will (w_clemmons) farewell meet up too. Sal (sincitytraveler) ordered a TB logo cake. He is the best.  It was enough for all of us. we all forgot to eat it and I had the bring to with me home.  We all stay up all night and it was cold outside that it was a natural fridge. We all ended up cutting up the cake in the morning where we had breakfast together. John (jpchoi) ended up taking it home.



I also made a TB logo sign for the table where when new TBs are coming. They can see the sign and find where we are. I also have names of all who attended the VEGAS I, II, AND III MEET UPS. Everybody seems to like to take photos of it. I still have to for future meet ups which it will be in a long time until I organize another VEGAS MEET UP.
