Blog > Indian Postcrossing meetup on 11/11/11

Last November, a group of Indian postcrossers got together in Mumbai, on 11/11/11. The goal? To bring postcrossers closer together, and create a Postcrossing family in India!

Mumbai Postcrossing meetup

In attendance were exactly 11 postcrossers (what a neat coincidence!): indianfriendszone, seetas, Yuktie, Kanthi, anushankarn, kevindesai777, NishaJ, manojkamat_2005, kaushal, aditicm and Manasi.

Together they wrote and sent postcards with India’s Post special cancelation mark of the day, showed each other their collections, and shared tips on to store and preserve postcards.

Here are a few photos from the event:

Amit S, organizer of the meeting told us that “With all the excitement members didn’t realise how time flew by, some had to rush back home and the others decided to move on to a nearby restaurant for some coffee and snacks and more discussions!”

Time does fly when you’re having fun! :)

PS – Never been to a Postcrossing meetup before? Look up the upcoming meetings on the forum, or set up your own!

@carmen1405 , aleoliva86 , nisha : if you wish we can swap postcards…

@rkneo11 and manu_hsp : I wish you can attend the next meetup..

@ Duplevista : Next meetup? Whenever members are willing too… Hoping we can have a meet in HAMPI (UNESCO place)

@ 9teen87 and GabijaGiriwala : Thanks for uploading Meetup Postcard and Special Cancellation :)

@ walle and nisha : If you wish to have the meetup postcard then you can try requesting NishaJ on India Forum
(link : http://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=58780&page=2 )

@ ipuenktchen : Its really a sad news… Not just Postcrosser , infact others mite also be affect which the revised postage. I wish the Postal Department can change it again, if many people write to them.

Thanks to everyone for your wishes and I hope we can see more members attending in future meetups in INDIA, and even International Members.

And thanks to all the 11 members who made this successful meetup :)
