BoB/Heavy Medal Meet-Up at ALA Midwinter (Change of Time and Place)

For those of you at Midwinter,we were planning to have our first ever BoB/Heavy Medal Meet-Up at the Marriott Hotel’s Circ at 5PM on Saturday, January 25th. However, that doesn’t seem workable for many (notably DaNae whose idea it was and we want to come for sure).

So now we have a new plan — to meet after the Youth Media Awards Announcements on Monday morning. We can collect and find a place to sit down, have coffee, and dish about the results! Let us know if you would like to join us in the comments.




  1. Drat, that is the one time during the conference that I have another obligation. It does happen to be at the same hotel so I will try and bop my head in and say hello as I pass by.

  2. I would love to meet up with everyone. It is my first time attending ALA and I’m equally excited and overwhelmed.

  3. I’d love to meet up, depending on when the YMAs wrap up. I’m planning to attend the Morris/Nonfiction award program at 10:30, but if there’s time count on me to meet up with other commenters.

    Great. The YMA should be over by 9:00 or 9:15. It will give us some time to just greet and catch up. It will be slightly chaotic but let’s hope we can find each other. Perhaps we’ll carry a Battle Commander sign?

  5. I could I M you my cell number and you could send out a mass text on where to meet. Or more logically once there we can scope out locations in advance for a handy meet up spot and arrange it here. If the center is anything like Seattle, which is my only point of reference, there we plenty of tabley meeting areas not far from the action.

    I love the idea of meeting up! I hope you will plan something for Vegas, too!
