I didn't want to go that far. Sure, it would be nice to organize a meeting, but because of the number of collectors in the U.S. it would surely be best to make such a world-wide meeting in the U.S.
I, for instance couldn't afford the journey just for the collectors meeting (think of the number of collectors you could buy just for the flight). This could be of interest, if I could combine it with other things (job, ...) but I don't see a chance for this now.
I'm sure, others (Europe, Australia, ...) would think the same.
It seems strange to me, that mostly Europeans have answered in this thread.
What I liked, was just to meet some other collectors and sure, the reason mentioning Austria was, because I live there :-) . Besides that, Vienna is a nice town.
A central-European meeting should take part, where all the collectors have the shortest way and this does mainly depend on the distance (or cost)for the single people and who would like to come there.
In example a cheap weekend trip flight to London might be cheaper for me, than a journey with the railway to Hamburg or Amsterdam.
So hey, let's have fun with all of this. We shouldn't make too much troubles with organizing before a critical mass is reached (but we can use this forum every time for organizing smaller meetings in some corners of the world).
More people interested ? Drop into this thread and tell what you'd like.
