[IC] San Francisco bay area meetup
« on: Fri, 21 May 2021, 14:05:04 »
Hey all! I've recently been bitten by the keyboard collecting and building bug, and I have a lot to learn. I'd love to set up a meetup and meet other enthusiasts in the Bay Area. Now that many of us are vaccinated, it seems like we could get at least a small handful of people together in the same physical location.

I'd aim for the end of August or early September. Can you all give me a sense of how interested you'd be in this? I can find a location and arrange the details.

Thanks,
Ossa

small meetups are really what we need more of. the scene has gotten so big here that the meetups have been reduced to large events that are far and few. i might just try to throw something together in the next month or two and just limit it to like 15-20 peeps max. i'd also be in favor of meeting later in aug/sept too.

I might be down for something later in the year as well.  Something in the East Bay would be most interesting to me.

I work remotely but job is in SF. Nothing would make me happier than to hop out for a meetup.

Would also be interested in a small-medium meetup. Ideally, in San Francisco.

Hey all - I haven't forgotten about this. I'll try to secure a venue for some time in August for a small gathering in SF.

Just came across this; sounds like fun!

Still haven't done a meetup since I've taken a nosedive into this hobby, so I'd be down.

Is there a SF discord where we can discuss this meet up?  ;D

There's an old meetup discord channel but it's a little dead now.

Not to highjack the thread but it's really been a minute since I've been to a meet so I'd love to put an small impromptu one together. I'm making a new thread in this forum section and arranging a small meet for next week. Hope you don't mind OP and hope to see some of yall there.

If you're talking about the "CA Meetup Discord" it's not dead. It's only super active when there's a meetup soon. If you want to generate interest, that's a great place to post.

Sounds like a great idea and I would love to go and meet new people! It would also be nice if it's held on Saturday or Sunday.

How many people can attend this meetup? I would like to attend, as an enthusiast, I want to know and feel what is considered good in this hobby. Wonder how your boards stack up to mine.

Definitely interested in a Bay Area keeb meetup!

Given that Ossa registered their account in May, was last online in July, and has only 2 posts, I'm getting the sense that we'll have to make this happen ourselves.

I personally don't have much experience with organizing meetups, but happy to work with someone who has to get this over the line.
