A look back to the First Meet Up in Seattle - 2011
« on: June 05, 2021, 01:39:03 am »
Hard to imagine that it is 10 years this week since the first meet up of Avatar fans to visit a Avatar themed exhibit occurred.

In 2011 a group of us landed in Seattle to visit the EMP Museum on the opening weekend and finally meet face to face.  I'll try and post a few videos today from that meet up.  The quality isn't that good, but it was mostly shot on my phone!  Here's the first one:

This was a second visit to the exhibit as one visit was never going to be enough!

Not sure what happened to the exhibition after the tour.  I think there is one still touring somewhere?

We had a clan meal in the evening which was organised by Fyerwall:

And this was the last day of the first Avatar fan meet up in Seattle 10 years ago.  It's great looking back at that first Avatar adventure.


Many more were to happen over the years and you can view them on the AvatarMeet YT channel:

No worries.  Glad they were of interest. I am just amazed at the speed of time.  To still remember  the meet up as though it was yesterday and it yet be a decade ago!  Hopfully there will be more meet ups along the way.
