    Dont have time to delve into it (wrapping up my break), but was wondering if the idea if member gatherings had been considered. Something on a city by city basis, with the intent of strengthening the AF community already established. Benefits could be, better sense of community (obviously), new friends, possibly open new doors for some people, and for a few people it might mean exposure to direct sunlight :p

    Sounds good... Would be great if we could have regional lounge forums too but that would be a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE undertaking

    I am very active in a small city in New Hampshire (25,000 night and 40,000 day). The number of events in this one location is enormous.

    The problem is where do you draw the line for who is in and who is out?

    Second problem, whenever you draw a line you alienate someone.

    Maybe its something the members have to organise themselves.

    I'd be willing to organize a trial in Phoenix. Not fund, I'm not made of money, but definitely give organizing a shot. My obstacle would be reaching out to those in the area. Something like an IP address isolated forum message would be ideal.

    And maybe selection would be based on frequency of forum activity?

    and to address the issue of alienation, in partnership with selection, this would of course be a reoccurring event with more opportunities to attend.
