This idea came from the "Hello from San Ramon" discussion and wanted to repost the idea in the right section with a better title so that people local to the bay area who might be interested in meeting other members of this community would have an easy time finding it and hopefully hear about it before hand rather than after the fact.
In the aforementioned thread, it seems that there is a fair amount of local interest in finding a place to meet up. Most of this interest stems from San Francisco so far, but others from Livermore, Napa, and Burlingame have also expressed interest.
My thoughts on where and when this meetup might take place-
Two dates that have come to mind are May 11 and May 18- Both are Saturdays. Hopefully this works for most peoples schedules, as it is not mid week, and those of us who have plans/other priorities on Sunday are not left out.
I'm thinking this would probably be better off as a morning event rather than lunch or dinner event. I think a start time of ~8 AM or 9AM and letting the meet-up run as long as people were interested, perhaps 10-11AM, depending on attendance.
Cities that came to mind were Oakland/Alameda, Walnut Creek, or San Ramon- Ideally nobody has to drive too far, I would like to keep round-trips under 100 miles so that if someone wishes to attend but doesn't have a lot of time, they don't have to drive for very long to get to/from the meetup.
I'm open to suggestions on where to meet up, I think the only requirements are big parking lots and easy to get to would be a plus.
-- Open to any and all suggestions.
-- If you are interested in attending: If you have a meeting location that would accommodate a bunch of vans in mind that hasn't been mentioned, please share. If one date or time works better than another, please mention it.
If I am the one planning this unassisted, I will specify date/time/location by majority vote.
I'll kick things off with a vote for Peet's Coffee on Crow Canyon Road in San Ramon. Preferred date/time would be May 18 @ 8AM.
