more guidelines, info, & contact info here….
For the cities listed above, i have contacted a few VIPz from those areas about a MEET & some are willing to host one there.
so VIPz: if you are located in/near the areas listed above, & want to participate in this project, please comment on this post & CONTACT ME! (info is listed below)
PROJECT MEET & GREET 2008
-to gather all VIPz together & make new friends in all cities, states, and countries around the world.
-to tour & enjoy the sites of the beautiful city/state/country you live in, while hanging out with your newly made VIP friends.
As you have witnessed, there are VIPz EVERYWHERE around the WORLD, & i want BIG BANG to know that we’re here for them.
-these “meets” are set up to be casual meets, like how you’d meet up with a friend. i wouldn’t label it as official, just a meet-up.
-people participating should meet up at a public place, that way everyone is able to attend & find where the locations are. from there, who knows where you guys will venture!
-i’d try to avoid costly activities, unless you all agree to do the same thing.
-the meetings should be fun, enjoyable, and shouldn’t take up all day, unless you all agree to it.
–photography is a must! i think it’d be nice to document all our meets, thereby completing the project successfully. i eventually want to share all our experience with the other VIPz who aren’t able to attend.
-there is no age limit; i cannot stop you from going, but your inability to obtain transportation and/or your parents can.
FOR POTENTIAL HOSTEES:
-if you are in one of the cities listed above & i have not contacted you about the meet, please email me so i can keep in touch with you.
–if i have emailed you, please email me back. it’s obviously important.
-if you are in the process of organizing a meet & greet, you must let me know. do not go ahead & organize this on your own; that’s why i’m here for you. i’ll need your information & plans just so i know what’s on the loop. also, we want this documented for the project, & not used as a personal objective.
-i would like you to stop passing around email addresses, as the last post’s comments started getting confusing. just email me your info, & i will forward you all to the right people.
FOR POTENTIAL PARTICIPANTS:
–ANYONE can join this project. as long as you have a ride TO & a ride BACK (or you can find another means of transportation, i.e. BUS/TRAIN/SUBWAY, etc) there’s no stopping ya!
-i’d keep some chump change just in case. things/ideas could just pop up & you might need to feed & support yourself. ^^
-if you have any ideas & would like to contribute in another way, you can email me too! i’d like to know what you’re thinking about.
-all project inquiries should be emailed to: email@example.com
-if you’re lucky enough to catch me while i’m online, i have:
MSN messenger: firstname.lastname@example.org
^ these methods are preferred, as it is faster to contact me & relay information.
once again, i’d like to stress that the cities listed above, i have contacted a few VIPz, & SOMETHING is gonna happen in those areas, we just need serious participants who are able to attend sometime soon.

Second, we’ll start eating the lovely food everybody brought! :]

Last but not least, we’re going to sing three big bang songs! We’re going to start off with “With U”, then “Lies”, and end it with “This Love” [the english version] since it’s GD’s solo! :] So you should start practicing as soon as possible. ^^ There’s no need to be shy since we’re all going to be singing together in a big group!
The entire day is going to be recorded so that we can edit the video & send it, along with the gifts, to GD so he can watch it!
Last comments?: We would LOVE it if people could stay after the party to help pick up trash &clean up the park! We don’t want to get in trouble by leaving a mess.

NYC MEET will be happening on: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st, 2008.
you can read more about it here: Chusok, Korean Harvest and Folklore Festival in Flushing Meadows
TIME: 1PM – MEET AT SHEA STADIUM; FESTIVAL: 2:30PM – 6PM
Directions: Take the Queensbeound 7th Train to Willets Point/Shea Stadium & MEET DOWNSTAIRS

Things that we are doing:
We are going to the Chusok, Korean Harvest and Folklore Festival in Flushing Meadows. The festival will have lots of Korean foods, games, performs from JYP Entrainment like Wonder Girls, J-Lim G-Soul , Min and etc. The performances start around 2:30pm and ends around 6:00pm. However you need to be early to get seats so if you wants seats tell me and i will change the time of the meet.
Please get metrocards so that you can transfer.
basically, you’re gonna meet up at Shea Stadium around 1pm, & then together, head to Flushing Meadows. another option is to head to the park on your own & meet up. since it’s a show, there’s limited seats. so we must plan ahead of time & work to find good seats & sit together. i hope this isn’t a late notice & whoever is interested should contact daisy at: firstname.lastname@example.org or AIM: StarDaisy212
I, Tomo will be going to Minnesota for spring break. Since there is much more VIP in MN we’ll meet there.
Date: March 20, 2009
Where: Mall of America (Bloomington, MN)
Meeting time: 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
I know those who live in MN has been to MOA plenty of times but you did not go with VIPS. We will spend our day at MOA, since they have many attractions. Such as, Nickelodeon Universe, NASCAR Silicon Motor Speedway, A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation, Underwater Adventures, and Aquarium. The attraction I’m aiming for is the Nickelodeon Universe or the Aquarium. If you guys want to do some shopping we can do that too. There’s couple of korean restaurants in Minneapolis where we can dine.
