    Please vote and post any thoughts, comments, or additional suggestions.

    Also, if each of you would post when would be best for you to attend a "meeting" (weekend mornings, sunday afternoon, weeknights after 7pm, etc)

    Times that are good for me are Mon-Fri, anytime after 5PM. My weekends are open. At least for now they are!

    It varies all the time for me and I may have to bring my padawan depending on if the wife is working or not.

    Yea I was wondering what was going on. I'm going to be in Florida from Sept 16-25. Then I have my last day at work on Oct 8. Don't know what I am doing after that. But after the 8th I should be able to make any time...as I said depending on what time I may have to bring my daughter.

    The more the merrier. Still curious as to how old everyone is here, I'm 38. Am I the grandfather of the group?

    Anyone here go to dragon con in atlanta? Looks like alot of fun, I will have to go next year...

    I think the only way we are going to get people to meet is for someone to just pick a day and a place and a time, and go, and anyone who wants to go can go and say hello.

    I know I try to hit the Barnes and Noble on Hull Street rght off 288 a couple times a month in the evening, next time I'm going I'll shoot off a note. Might be this friday.

    I reckon this may be bringing up the dead but what about doing a grill-out at the house. We could find a weekend afternoon or evening this summer and do it up. I grew up here but a few years living down in Florida, and my wife and I look for any reason we can to put together a little dig with friends.

    Any thoughts?

    A picnic sounds good...we have done that many times before (between the other groups) and it normally works out well.

    The only problem would be doing it at a person's home. No offense, but some people are a little weird about going to someone they dont know's house to meet them for the first time. But thre are several REALLY nice parks where we can picnic (either reserving a shelter or just winging it)...

    Either way, I think this is a good idea. Lets plan :)

    My wife keeps reminding me that this town isn't the way it was when I grew up here. I don't mean to make anyone nervous, just me being me. Being as I have this on my other SW board as well I didn't really think much about choosing a "neutural" location. I know my kids would need to be a bit more restrained in a park or something so that's why I was thinking the house. That way you can bring the family, kids can play, spouses can make fun of us and everyone is happy;) Oh and good food, a shin-dig just ain't worth a darn without good food.

    If someone is willing to host an event in their house, then why not? Otherwise, we should pick a local park within the area to meet. I live 1:30 minutes south of Richmond, but that's no big deal for me.

    Is that an expression, or an actual town? [face_laugh]

    I've been living here for 5 years, so I'm still relatively new to the area. I live about 10 miles south of South Hill. Right near the VA/NC border.

    Expression, I was talking about Emporia, Many years ago I used to deliver milk and I thought half the town was part of the Sadler family seemed like it anyway, of course now I reckon like alot of other towns it's grown.

    I live about 45 minutes west of Emporia actually, right off of I-85. Our area has been growing pretty rapidly, especially in the last 5 years.

    I know where you mean and yea, I it has built up so much that I don't always recognize places when I go back to them.

    My favorite expression for several years now has been that the farmers finally found a good cash crop with all the houses they are growing.
