Happy new year, everyone! I’m pretty excited about where GWC’s headed this year and thought I’d share a few bits of news and happenings.
First, we’re making some SERIOUS progress on our plans for the 2012 International Meetup. We announced the date (March 16-18, 2012) on the forum back in November, but it’s taken us a bit longer to work out the nitty gritty details. That said, we’re getting close to locking down the major happenings. In fact, we expect to have those out to you in the next week or two. A few things I can tell you already: We’re planning events starting at noon on Friday and all the way through Sunday evening. This year will definitely be more event-laden than previous years — not that there won’t be plenty of time to just eff off and hang out with friends (new and old). The process will be similar to previous years (don’t worry, we’ll announce it with the schedule), but you’ll definitely need to RSVP for a few of the events. It’s gonna be great.
Also, I wanted to thank those who’ve donated to GWC both on an ongoing basis and over the holidays. Like a lot of you, we found ourselves short of cash after the holidays, and that plus some unexpected personal expenses left us, well, the best way to say it is flat broke. Remember how I mentioned on the podcast that we generally operate the podcast as best we can on our own and save up for “oh s***” moments where we’re screwed? This was one of those. And you came through. Saved up donation money saved the day and kept GWC on the air when it would have gone dark yesterday. You rock. Thanks again. GWC means as much to me as it does to you, so I’m indebted.
Oh yeah, it’s Thor’s Day (as GWCer Keir reminded me this morning) which not only means it’s time to add additional upper body work to your gym day (you know, in honor of the recent movie), but also time for EFF THIS WEEK! We’ll be Effing live tonight at 9:00 p.m. CT (or “crappy time” as Juan calls it — that’s 7:00 p.m. “proper time”) and we’d love to see you at the party. You can join by clicking the Live link at the top of the page. If you’re at work or elsewhere, you can hear the live stream via the UStream app for iOS/Android.
We’re also scheduled (if all goes well) to record a Save Eureka tonight, so if you have any calls for the show, be sure to get ’em in before 6:00 p.m. CT.
Have a good one.
