Question East Coast Meet and Greet

I've PM'd a few people to gauge interest and in regards to the mixed interest of the responses I figured I'd post this up.

I'm reaching out to the East Coast members, but in this section mainly the MD residents to see who would be interested in a meet and greet at a LFS? Once we get an idea of how many people this will include and where people are willing to drive and what LFS I wouldn't mind contacting the LFS to schedule something.

Please post up if you're interested.

This would be a chance for people to meet other local members, trade plants/fish/equipment, and check out a LFS that you maybe never would normally drive to. Local clubs and organizations are also welcome to come scout and pitch their gab to get new members as well.

I think this is a great idea. I'm interested but would depend on when and where it would be held. Ideally a weekend day. I'm in the Maryland/DC Metro area.

I might bite on this.
I travel from Annapolis to DC daily.
Weekends could work?

I would aim for this to be a mid day Saturday thing or even a Sunday morning thing. It really depends on availability of all who are interested and the place that possibly hosts it (unless we just meet at a public place for plant trade and go to a LFS later.)

Options I've come up with is a conference room for plant trading/light refreshments at a public library or contacting a LFS. The only LFS's that have the floor space to do this that I can think of would be Congressional Aquarium in Rockville (who I hear expanded), and House of Tropicals in Glen Burnie. That is if we stick to the MD area.

I travel from Frederick to Greenbelt daily for work, so I'm not against a drive regardless of the choice. I know we have a few quieter MD members on the forum that belong to GWAPA, CCA, and a few other local organizations. If you're part of one of them and interested let me know. I wouldn't mind working with the leads of the clubs to get something where all groups meet and TPT members who are non club members have the opportunity to meet other clubs and join. Plus this means we could mix the plant/fish/hardware trading with some of the clubs auctions. This would be overly ideal, but would be something planned out farrrrrr in advance. Being overly optimistic I may reach out to MzJinkzd and Batfish Aquariums to see if they are interested in being part of this event if it gets large enough. I would guess it would need to be a group of 15/20+ people to make it worth their time to come down/up to bring fish to sell and give a little presentation on something.
