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.
 
If you settle for what they are giving you, you deserve what you get. Fight for this tiny ad!
