No worries - it worked for what *I* needed, so that's what counts. Just 
kidding! :) Hope it turns out useful for everyone.

I've done the "I'll be wearing gold framed glasses and a blue shirt" thing 
and I've also gone person to person through a crowded club, looking for a 
girl I knew only by email who gave me a really sketchy description, until 
after about 20 tries, I finally climbed up on the corner of the stage 
during a break and shouted out her full name. Kinda got everyone's 
attention, so I'd recommend deciding on some common thing for a Beervolt, 
like drawing a big E on your forehead or something, hehehe.

Just recalled the funniest time I met a group - I was the organizer, so I 
told people we were listed under the name "Search" and to meet at the bar 
before we got a table. Few people caught it until they heard over the 
loudspeaker, "Search party of 9! Search party! Your table is ready." There 
was a momentary hush, then the whole place erupted in laughter, and almost 
funnier - I had to explain what a search party is to the announcer and he 
still didn't get it. :)
