The Block Party Update

A when and where has been chosen for The BLOCK Party! We have decided on June 23rd to June 28th. We will make Olcott, NY in these United States our stomping grounds for a week. We are setting up shop on the United States side of Lake Ontario, we could probably skip a rock and hit Canada! Anyone that needs a place to stay, talk to us! A rough itinerary has also been composed by @bluefinstudios and @dreemsteem that looks promising.

The 'Witty Committee' was instrumental in finding this place. @bluefinstudios (who took that picture), @dreemsteem, @shadowspub, @snook and @brisby made a beautiful find with this location! There are several really nice, spacious homes and even hotels people can rent for the duration of their 'vacation'.

@enginewitty will be the staying at the appropriately named 'Castle' and will have room for a few people wishing to attend. If all you can stay is one night, we can make arrangements for that too. Simply reach out to him on Discord or if you are not already affiliated, there is a link near the bottom of this post for the Castle in Discord where he spends his days (and often, long nights). He is approachable, don't be scared, we know you want to come! If you need help making arrangements and are sure you are coming, please talk to @enginewitty and he will help you.

Goodie Bag Sharing?

One thing that was proposed during the last informal meeting, was a gift sharing idea. Last year, things did not go as planned when items were ordered from a particular supposed Steem outfit, and so to avoid relying on anything that poses as (but isn't) professional, we decided to make it more personal. @rakkasan84 and @scarletreaper can be thanked for this as they imparted personal treasures to everyone last year.

You can do this any way you choose. Maybe you want to draw a picture for everyone or make some magnets? Maybe you know of some cute little knick-knacks from your part of the planet that you want everyone to have? Maybe you are a great cook and bring some dessert dish that is the bombdiggity and send us all home with the recipe? Be creative, be you, and bring something along so that the rest of us can take just a little extra piece of you home with us.

SPS Proposal!

Maybe you do want to come, but aren't sure you can do it without a little help. Well, at the suggestion of @guiltyparties and via the diligent hand of @dreemsteem, we have compiled a two part reimbursement program with the hopes that this lovely Steem community will approve it and we can get as many people there as possible!

Wait, you said 2 part? Yes, we also aim to hold a Blockchain Summit for people with massive visions to move Steem forward! Anyone that perhaps has been here for several years, strong influencers, seasoned investors, experienced (and budding) developers and programmers. Virtually anyone that has the makings (or already does have) of something that can help to propel our beloved chain into the spotlight of not only cryptocurrency, but as a truly social blockchain. Be it gaming, onboarding, or any project that you or the community feels holds substantial merit. Get your votes in!

Who's Coming?

You'll notice and have probably wondered, why there is no mention of selling tickets or a price for anything at the door. That's because this year, we are simply making the arrangements and seeing how it all pans out. People that want to come can find what they can afford and are comfortable with. Some people might like to sleep alone in a hotel room and some may love the massive community sleep-over like we had last year.

Either way, the main thing is that you get there. Social media and networks are built on the people and faces behind them. This is your chance to meet some of the brilliant minds and boisterous personalities that you see almost every day, out there on the chain. Steem has already pried open many relationships to start blooming and in person? Those relationships become the flowers captured in time by photos and experiences that the butterflies and bees and birds and humans alike, all love to enjoy. Real life. Are you coming?
