Howdy folks I am going to work on the VA Virtual attendees program . Done it a few times before . Let me explain how this will work I will post in VT and then in F B as well that those who cannot attend the Eur Meet in Bergamo will be able to have their VT names going on a list that we will call VA or Virtual attendees for VT Eur meet in Bergamo Italy wannabees I will ask the Eur meet organizers for an updated list of attendees who will attend the Bergamo Eur meet Ok everyone agreeing to this program will have some responsibility to make it successful Once I have an updated list of attendees I will contact them all by VT E-mail and there will be a Misc forum posted as well ,but for those not very active in VT it will be ok to contact me here in this Forum if you are interested in '' Adopting '' a Virtual Attendee . Then for those who want to be a VA ,same thing contact me in VT (which will have a Forum about this project later on as well )or contact me here in this Eur meet F B forum or group . Once a match is made and that means once an attendee of the Bergamo has adopted a wannabee VA ,then these two folks will then have to communicate and work out something between them on how to get a picture of the VA to the person attending the meet in Bergamo adopting the VA so they can be Virtually attending this Eur meet Remember NOTE : NOBODY is going to match you up YOU guys will be doing that on your own on a first come first serve basis For example Attendee Suvanki likes to adopt VA ?????? I will then record that ''Match'' and post it in VT & FB and updated on a daily basis so everyone will see who adopting whom . Ok that should explain it If there are any Questions or suggestions on please send them to Hansi in public or in private whatever you prefer . Good Luck to all of you Hansi Updates will be coming as they are received by me .
Ok here we go VA wannabees are Bergamo Eur meet attendees willing to adopt 1) canuck68 none yet
If anyone wants me to adopt them I'll be more than happy to do so - but beware: Association with John can seriously damage your liver LOL - HIC!
Hi Hansi! Thanks again for taking on the VA 'Ringmaster' role. As organizers - myself, Gilly and J only have access to the list of attendees from those who've signed up for 'IT'S YOUR MEET' - Though some who've signed up for pre-meets/meals haven't all signed up for the main meet yet!
Yes I know Sue even I have not even signed up all the events but I will very soon My point is that I do not want to or have to E-mail a person on the main attendees list who is not going to be there So if I can in private get a list of the no shows then I can cross them out on my main list of attendees that would be a lot easier for both of us John Thnks you are the first to volunteer adopting a VA So far Diane Canuck68 is looking to be adopted I stay out of this you guys tell me who you want to adopt So Diane would you like John to adopt you ,if yes please write me here or in F B Hansi Hansi
Yes Diane I'll quite happily adopt you again - if your liver has recovered from last time? And Ann too if she wants me. Two VA's would be ideal for me.
I would volunteer to adopt someone too...as long as they like raw fish! :-))

I'd like to be a VA please Hansi. The more trouble my adopter can get me into, the better I will like it. I'd be there in person except personal circumstances are preventing me. Thanks for your hard work in this, it IS fun, but sometimes people don't realise the amount of effort it takes for you to organise this and get the pics printed. Thank you Hansipoodles.
Oh Sue you are more than welcome to come along with me if you like....or are you waiting for someone...ummmm 'racier'? Do I need a sheep too for this?
Hansi I am not a VA wannabe........thanks though.
KShezz - I love raw fish! Will you adopt me?? BTW, I am a scuba diver too! I love diving the Red Sea. DEY-Diane Y.
Kirsty, I feel it in me water that you will get me into more trouble than a barrel load of monkeys, in which case, I put myself in your capable and naughty hands. If you can get me into DAO's pants as I did on one occasion in Cascais, I will be eternally grateful. Stick me into a winery as I did with Dorrise and I will be more than happy. Kaspian giving me a smoocher will make my day. Hansipoodles hugging me will send me into transports of joy. I want to be up the top of everywhere, dancing with everyone and eating everything. Do your absolute best and worst, it can't be anything I haven't done in the past and it will surely make me laugh!
I want to be adopted by anyone who wants me.. Please contact me re:acceptance. Cheers Dorrise
I'm a VA wannabee......up for adoption. :-) Kathy
I'm rather quiet and shy (shhhhhh Hansi!!!!) and very well behaved (just keep me away from the Guinness and the Baileys). Would like to be adopted please. I will do my best not to snore at night. Keep me away from that Suet-Gal.... she is sure to lead me astray!!!! I'm not an adventurous eater... prefer my food to be cooked!! Been a while since I was at a VT meeting with anyone beyond Hansi & Lori, so hope I will behave properly.
And, not too much red wine, please -- tends to give me a migraine, and then I'm no fun at all!!!
im up for adoption :)

Thank you Kirsty that is just wonderful I will update later on today Sue and Dorrise will be delighted and together you ladies will come up with a nice VA thingy . Any questions just post them in here ok Hansi
So as far as I understand it I need to send those 2 (and anyone else who wants to tag along) my full postal address and they should then send me a photo of them?..is that right?....I remember Ann had them on a lanyard and laminated that seemed like a good idea...
Hi Kirsty . Well you can do it like you mentioned But there are ways of doing it by simply right click on a picture of Dorrise and Sue save that picture as is and then print that picture and then you can make a frame around it or take it to be laminated etc etc I have seen so many wonderful VA cards/pictures in the past . Some were very fancy done and others were plain Jane pictures in a frame . Pictures can be put around your neck but there are no rules for that . You can have a picture in your purse and take it out to show around and show your VA's the things you visit and take pictures with the VA's and then you can send those pictures to them by computer or post them in VT or elsewhere . There are no rules Kirsty . Hansi
Okidoki Im with you...I shall have a child here look into printing them out for me...and I know the copyshop in town does laminating so I shall look into that soon
okidoki Kirsty you are a very quick learner Lori & I look forward to meet you very much . Hansi
Hey, Hansi..... watch those "Plain Jane" comments..... some of us Janes ressemble those comments greatly!!!! Just sayin'!!!! (And you know me..... I might not go to Tim's with you the next time we meet up!!!!.... I can get very nasty!) LOL

Wheeee! Kirsty! Dorrise and I like to be Dodgy Old Ladies and the more scrapes we can get into, the better. We both like wine, we both like to party and we both have a wicked sense of humour. I think you can be creative as you like, eh Dorrise?
