    Propose time and place here. I'm pretty flexible. I'd prefer to stay on Southside, but I'll meet wherever works best for everybody.

    Thanks for setting this up. I had thought about getting one up for us, but looks like you got to it first.

    Same here, I'm pretty flexible with one caveat for the month of October. I'm on short recall for military duty so I could get the call and have to leave out quick. Saturday afternoons would be my preference.

    Saturdays would be preferable for me too.

    I'm good most Saturdays too, except this one: going to the Folk Festival.

    I'm looking to meeting some fellow collectors, maybe drink a couple beers together, and put some faces with the screen names I see on the boards.

    Is anybody paying attention to this thread? I'm still interested in a meetup.

    It may be more that people don't have as much free time this time of year. Personally, my time is spoken for for the entire month of November and most of December.

    There are a couple of Transfans that live here in Richmond as well that would like to meet other fan folks around hyonder. We live around Lakeside and West End with saturdays being the most ideal days for meeting up.

    Most Saturdays are good for me, too. Most of the Richmond folks who expressed interest in a meetup are on the Southside, but I'm not opposed to crossing the river.

    Those interested in meeting up, would tomorrow be too soon? Propose a time and a place if it's good for you. Or if I could give a suggestion... TGI Fridays off of Midlothian turnpike. Not too much further to the TRU from there and Forest Hill Walmart is in range to do some hunting after linking up.

    The following weekend is out for me since I'm meeting friends in NC.

    Okay, that works for me. It happens to be right after payday for me so I can prep for it.

    Anybody else game for the 17th?

    Good point. I didn't think about that.

    That makes three. So far, it looks like it'll be an intimate affair, but there's plenty of time to wrangle some more folks.

    I'll have to check with the family calender to be sure but the 17th looks like it could be a go.

    HMMM, I MIGHT be able to make the 17th. It's my first day back to work from 3 days off though, and I work midnights (I start at 9pm that night), so it would preferably have to be a bit earlier in the afternoon. I live in downtown RVA, so Midlothian isn't too far from me.

    The 17th looks good and I'll probably have a few folks in tow with me as well. Where over southside way would said hook up be taking place at ?
