Well Jo, you can do something in return.
Count me in as a VA please.
As I had every intention of attending until personal family business changed my summer plans, I'd like to be someone's VA as well. Please.
Me too! Good Luck for your meet, sorry that I can't make it in person!
Add me to your list too please :o)
Unfortunately I must switch my status from attending to virtual attendee. It's a long story but suffice it to say, work related. I'm going to really miss not attending this one.
Yes! Please add me to your list as a VA! One of my favorite places in the US, but sadly I can't make the actual meet.
Count me in too.
I would be very honoured to be a VA at the meet as the States seems to be a place I never seem to actually get to. What do I need to do, submit a photo or something or can you use my profile pic?
How VAs are organised depends on the individual meet organisers.
For Bergamo, VAs were put 'on offer' by Hansi on a Misc thread and then attendees told him who they'd adopt (which he then announced on the thread, regularly updating it). What photos etc were used, and the format of the 'VA' card itself, depends on the individual attendee. They contacted the VA and sorted things out between them.
That's what happened for my VAs in Krakow too: I adopted someone and I made the cards using (I think) a larger pic they sent me via Vtmail.
Thanks J, I was sure it wasn't prescriptive.
I think Hansi's system worked really well for Bergamo.
Lori & I had to cancel our trip to Seattle World meet for personal reasons .
I will always be willing to help doing the VA thingy for any VT meeting in the future ,but only if and when I am asked by organizers .
Hansi, just to make it clear to everyone reading this:
We didn't ask you for Bergamo, you offered. And we were and are hugely grateful for you doing such a magnificent job. Thank you, again. :-)
I would like to be a virtual attendee at Seattle. Whenever I have asked in the past, nothing happened. Keeping fingers crossed this time.
Perhaps Jo (or one of the other organizers ) is planning on doing this VA thingy herself and her way .
So maybe we will find out about Jo's plans soon
