Possible Devmeet in Denver, CO

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 20, 2015, 8:22 PM


I posted a forum thread, and I'll post a journal too!

Hey guys! I don't know how many here know me, but I'm looking to host another Devmeet! I have hosted two of them before, one in Orlando, FL (2013) and one near Gainesville, FL (2014). I'm looking to host another one later this year or early next year. I know a lot of people are in college classes or High/Middle School, so I'd like to make it a weekend deal. Though it might affected people who work on weekends. ;-; I wanted to host over summer, however I just moved back to CO a few weeks ago. I was away in FL for college. I've recently graduated and hope to have one here in Colorado.

Would anyone be interested in helping host? I know a lot of people from CO and I would hope many could come. If you want to see how far Denver is from you, here is a map and some basic distances and time for ya (according to google maps):

Colorado map by Ahkward

Ft. Collins/Loveland = 1hr 15min <- I'm from here
Cheyenne, WY =  1hr 45min
Estes Park = 1hr 30min
Boulder = 45min
Grand Junction = 4hr
Aspen = 3hr 15min
Vail = 1hr 45min
Salida = 2hr 40min
Durango = 6hr 15min
Trinidad = 3hr
Pueblo = 1hr 45min
Colorado Springs = 1hr
Limon = 1hr 30min
Burlington = 2hr 30min
Sterling = 2hr

When: I'm looking to host it around October or November... depending on my available time, maybe December or January. IT really depends. 

Where: With the crazy winters we get here, I figure inside would be best! I was thinking of a location in the 16th Street Mall. It's easy to access via Public transportation, so if you haven't got a car, you should still be able to go. I'm still looking for an exact location that could possibly handle a large group of people.

As for myself, just so I don't seem like a stranger:
I'm Ahk/Ahkward and I'm a freelance artist working on breaking into the comic world. :D I'm also a recent graduate from Ringling College of Art and Design. I really love art and I love getting people together to enjoy art. I'm not really THAT shy, so I won't be getting everyone together and then shying away when people get there. XD

You can see my profile and gallery here if you want a better idea of who I am:

I've held Devmeets in the past with NukeRooster, Exileden , ArkelionLucky978 , GoldenDruid and a lot more! I'm looking for others to help me with this and I'd love to hear from you all! Do you think this would be something you would want to participate in?

Yeah well.... Im a glutton for punishment and I told my dad I would visit him at some point since he moved there a week ago (I was playing nice). I maybe could make the 13 hour drive really really worth it. Seeing an awesome artist and appeasing my dad. I see a win win.
