My business AbundantDesign.com is doing its second annual seed exchange on the 19 or 20th of March in Des Moines, IA. It was pretty small last year, a dozen or two attendees, but lots of fun and people have been asking if/when it will be. I have live music lined up for this year as well.

I've been thinking wouldn't it be cool to do a Skype call or NetMeeting, etc. between multiple venues around the country? Sort of like a big New Years Eve party, but for a New Season's Eve party!

I have mentioned it on a few Facebook groups too. Here's a link to last years event-

Anyone want to "come to the party" ?

Jeff, I've added your post to the 'midwest' forum to see if you get some more interest. Sounds like fun!

Hard to commit to attend if a firm date and time aren't yet established. Based on my experience with seed shows, I'd recommend Saturday morning from 10 to noon.

Right, but when I posted I was looking to coordinate with other locations (nationwide/worldwide?) so wanted to be flexible.
Will post again with the official date.
Thanks for the suggestion on time.
 
Doody calls. I would really rather that it didn't. Comfort me wise and sterile tiny ad:
