meet up

TMNT 2014 Movie Fan Gatherings!

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film coming to theaters on August 8th, some fans are already planning parties and meet ups across the country.  This is something I highly encourage.  Having friends there to share the moving going experience with is a great way to see this film.  To help with this idea we have started up a topic on TMNT-L to help people find TMNT fan gatherings and if their area is not listed they can add it.

Meeting Fans across Country

Traveling the country in 2009 was a dream trip.  I was getting to meet Turtle Fans in every state along the way, answering questions at the bus when people had Turtle questions, seeing fans of all ages coming to see the Tour bus.  I only wish I was working officially with the tour.  But, it was a wild and crazy trip I will never forget.  Though there was something weird for me on this trip, and that was how many people knew who I was.

Now 2009 is still a year before I started “Cowabunga Corner”, it was five years since the VH1 show aired.  And yet as I went across country, every state, every city I went to, people knew me.  Even at rest areas people would come up asking “Are you the Turtle Girl?”, so now I’d like to share some of these fan stories from across the United States in 2009.

My first Internet meet up

Ever get nervous about meeting fellow fans from the Internet?  Ever wonder if the person you’re talking to sitting on the other side of the screen is really who they say they are?  Has this prevented you from going out and meeting fellow fans?  I know I was nervous when I first got online, all you heard on the news was the bad stuff.
