The next meetup is coming up soon, the details below are pretty similar to the North one:
Date: August 4th
Location: Carowinds – Charlotte, NC / SC
9:00am – 10:45
Meet at Shoney’s restaurant, which is very close to Carowinds
I’ll be inside having breakfast or outside in the parking lot. T-shirts and prints will be available for sale outside (though they’ll be for sale all day). We should have higher quality ones this time, including Civil Protection ones. If you don’t want to pay for the cost of the amusement park, you can stop by during this time for free.
11:00 – 11:30
Arrive at Carowinds, Meet outside the south gate (not the north one). Here’s a picture from google maps:
WARNING: There is a $15 parking fee inside Carowinds because they’re jackals. You might want to try to park somewhere else and carpool with people.
11:30 – 2:00
Enter Carowinds, go on rides. If you still need a ticket, here’s the info to get a discount on it if you buy one online:
Price: $41 for August 4th if you use this link to purchase tickets. ($36 + $5 BS “processing” fee.)
2:00 – 2:30
Meet at the Carolina Skytower structure (should be the tallest structure in sight) in case more latercomers arrive or people get lost. We’ll probably eat after this.
5:00 – 5:30
Meet again at the Carolina Skytower structure.
~10:15pm (as park closes)
Meet outside south gate again.

Like the last meet, things will be pretty informal. I’ll answer questions, sign things, you can stick with me while I go on rides, split off and do your own thing, whatever you want. If you hang around, be prepared to have an answer for what you would do with an island if you were rich enough to buy your own.
HOW TO FIND ME:
I’ll be wearing a bright lime green t-shirt to remain as visible as I can. If you come late, you’re welcome to track me down “Where’s Waldo?” style. Here’s a picture of me from the last meetup:
Once again, if you’re colorblind, you should probably arrive on time. If you don’t see me, look for a large man wearing a Freeman’s Mind t-shirt, he’ll know what to do.
Hope to see more people at the meet!
