Sounds like fun. You thinking MD or VA? Or, I suppose, DC itself.

Count me in! I recall attending one some years ago - it was held in Clarendon (Arlington), if my pathetic memory serves me correctly. I would think that the easiest way to do this is in conjunction with a Chantilly Show, which I assume each of us usually attends; but, the next Chantilly Show isn't until next April.

I'm in! We should use something like Doodle to find a date that works for the most people. After the holidays would be best for me.

Why not meet in DC and then take the train to NYC for dinner?

There are some guys up there who can arrange the whole thing in a matter of months.:eek::D:D:D

I have no idea what that is but if it would be helpful then let's give it a try. Let's shoot for after the holidays.

Thanks for the reminder! For those in the area, you can choose which days work for you to attend a Net54 meetup between Jan 11 - Jan 24 here:

Just pick the days that work for you and we'll go with the one that the most people can attend ... that I can make :)

I proposed a location in Arlington that should be accessible to many as it's on the Metro (near Ballston).

Last call for people interested in getting together mid January! Please add your availability by COB Tuesday so we can make a final decision on what date works best for the most people.

I was only available to meet up on the weekends as I live about 2 hours north of DC. I cannot make it on a Wednesday (the 14th). But if you guys ever decide to meet over the weekend, I'd probably make the trip down.

We will absolutely do this again, Jason, and will shoot for a weekend the next time to accommodate those who can't make this one!

Any of the people who responded that they were available on the 14th (the majority of you!) planning to come?

Just arrived at First Down Sports Bar. Anybody that wants to show up early, sitting in the back near the entrance to the "Redskins Fan Cave"

Jeff, Eric, Will, Mark, and Val met last night in Arlington, VA.

We spent about two hours talking cards, auction houses, etc. and it was a blast! Val brought some cool stuff for "show and tell" and we all enjoyed checking out his awesome collection. Thanks Val!

We are hoping to meet up again during the next Chantilly, VA show that will be held in early April. We are also pulling together an email list to use to communicate more directly with each others. If you are in the DC area and are interested in getting more info on DC Net54 meetups, please PM me your email address.

I'll also always post to this thread with dates/times for others that are interested.

Six people currently are on the Net54 DC Group mailing list. We are planning to get together again one night during the April Chantilly Card show. If you are in the area and want to be on the email list, please PM me with your email address.

thanks,
