What does everyone think about planning a meet for mid September or October? I think we should plan for a venue large enough to accommodate everyone's gear and to have sufficient room to mingle. Probably at least ten 8ft tables as I am assuming more members will chime in. Of course the amount of space needed could shrink dramatically depending upon participation. Unfortunately I don't have enough space to host a meet.
texashorn91, you mentioned hosting a meet. How much space do you have available?
I checked a few hotels in my area (Mesa) and the going rate for a small banquet rooms is ~$200. This is much more space then we would need. I have a couple more places to call for a smaller area hopefully at a better price. If we cannot find someone willing to host I wouldn't mind contributing to a kitty to cover the cost of expenses.
The tentative attendees so far:
