    I tried doing a meet up a few years back, and only had about 6 showed up. the problem is that the state is so large and most people do not want to travel just for a meet up

    Or don't have time/transportation.

    I'm in Arlington... But I don't have a car to drive anywhere. God bless the DC Metro system ;)

    Enh. Not much into the idea of driving somewhere anyways. It's hard enough to get away from work just for down time...

    If y'all did one somewhere close, though...

    There was a small group in the Northern VA/DC metro area, but that was probably like 6 years ago. We had 5 or 6 people get together once or twice. It was nice to meet a few people, but not sure I'd bother again.

    Botcon is the get together worth going to.

    I think it could be fun if enough people were interested. I'm in Arlington but have the same issue as BraveMax.

    Well - for those of us in Arlington/the DC metro area, it might be good to start up again. If nothing else, we can keep an eye out for toys for one another and hand-off at meet-ups.

    Mmm... Happy hours ;)

    I'm down for a meet up in NoVA if there is one.

    Well - that seems like 3 or 4 of us all in the DC metro area...

    Any month/time in particular that's easier for everyone?

    Hm... I'm not usually off until around 6 PM, so that's a non-starter.

    Weekends?
