Default Meet Up?

anyone ever think about organizing a meetup for TF?

lan party or watching movies comes to mind.

I'm guessing, at minimum, you'd need a place and agenda.

If there's one within a decent distance from me I'll be there. Draw a circle with Atlanta and Nashville on the edge and I can get anywhere within it. I can make a bit farther, but it would take some planning.

Yes there have been several people that have tried to organize a LAN. There was a attempt at it last year.

I would be into a meetup when I am in the states. Generally though I will be on the west coast (SF Bay Area). I believe next summer I will be in Florida for a couple of weeks.

I would also be up for a Europe meetup as well. I could write off a trip to the UK.
