I figure since this is going on in Boston and so many of us are members of both groups, I'll post about this here as well. Most of the discussion will probably occur in the Boston thread as the date approaches, so be sure to check that out here. I figured those of you who actually live in RI might want a place to coordinate rides and such. MEPA (NYC FF) will be making a day trip to Boston on Saturday, October 16th to view the LOTR exhibit at the Museum of Science. Most of us have already seen the exhibit and probably won't be going again that particular day (although if you'd like to, feel free to join them), but I'd really like it if a good portion of us could join them before/after the exhibit, possibly for lunch/dinner and/or something else. Boston will still be having a separate meeting in October, so this is a more "informal" gathering. I realize it's kind of early to be starting a thread for this but I want to make sure everyone has advance notice so as many of us as possible can join our visiting friends. More details will be posted as they become available.
