Independently Independent Virtual Meetup

4th of July Virtual Meetup

Here’s something a bit different to spice up your 4th of July… Expanding this to the entire month of July....

I know many of you have family plans for Independence Day, but I don’t want that to stand in the way of some good Meetup camera fun.

Since all of you Red-Blooded types will be carrying your cameras around anyway let’s turn this holiday into a


Baltimore-wide virtual meetup photo-fest!

We'll show them darn Redcoats a thing or two about our Colonial spirit!

Ready…  Aim…  Shoot!

Plan some patriotic shots around these three categories:

  1. Festivities, Fun, and Frolic
  2. Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Other Comestibles
  3. Fireworks and Things That Go Boom!

Pick your best shots in each category and post them at: so the rest of us can enjoy them.  All shots will be posted to our timeline and the best will be shared to the home page for posterity.

There are no prizes or awards or anything like that, just a chance to participate in a loosely organized virtual shootout and share your photos with the group at

Independent fellow that I am, I will be on my own for the holiday.  Once I figure out where the appropriate action is in the i-695/i-795 area I’ll set up another meetup for anyone else in the neighborhood who is also footloose on the 4th. I'm open to suggestions.

I encourage anyone else in the same boat to save the date and join me or set something up in your own neighborhoods!

Let’s be careful out there…

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
