Meet and Greet Lunch

Let's get this party started. My thoughts for our first meeting is to just hangout, eat lunch and get to know each other. Depending on the interest, we may need to move the location, day or time. I'm open to any and all feedback. The first meeting will have little agenda and may just involve us telling our Bitcoin stories.

    Sorry I couldn't make it - when is the next one?

      I think after hours is probably a good idea. And without the complication of trying to order individual lunches for 40+ people. Just drinks and geek talk.

    • Luke S.

      Yeah, I think that's the plan (meaning a night time meeting). I was talking with some people at Emma today which may be an option for us. There was also a mention of the Entrepreneur Center as a potential option. Feel free to ask around. This is "our" group after all. If you have a good lead, please let us know and we'll make it happen.

    It was great to meet a group of folks who actually know what Bitcoin is!

    I'm looking forward to meeting other Bitcoin enthusiasts and I'm hoping to learn a bit about day trading if anyone cares to share their experience and expertise. I'm even willing to pay for a tutorial. Anyone accepting LTC as payment?
    : )

      I use that app too. I set mine to 10% swings because even those happen pretty often

      December 7, 2013

    • Bill H.

      I'd be interested too hear more about how you do day trading to come out ahead. There are plenty more wild swings coming I'm sure.

    Thanks, Bill! Sorry we didn't get to speak. Sent you an email.

    Luke: this was hugely successful, it was nice speaking with you and can't wait
    for the next meetup

    Have to fly out this morning for a power plant shutdown, but I'll be ready to build a dome on Thursday when I return.

    Conor, I'll sell you coins.

    December 10, 2013

  • Conor

    This was great. I would be interested to hear some speakers next time to the entire group. Also looking for anyone wanting to SELL coins

    Great to see so many people there!

    Late, but on my way.

  • Jamin G.

    Looks like I might have a +1 now.

    Thought I was going to have to miss this, but some work meetings were canceled so I will be able to join. There may also be a few others from iostudio that come with.

    December 10, 2013

  • Luke S.

    Thanks for updating your RSVPs. We had a few drop off and four more added... so it's gonna be a party. Hopefully the Nashville snowpocalypse of Dec '13 won't keep us from making it out. :) I'll be wearing a blue FoxyCart tshirt and the reservations are under my name or the Bitcoin Meetup. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Hard confirm

    December 10, 2013

  • Bill H.

    I'll be there.

  • Dayne W.

    Can't make it tomorrow and hate it. Soaking up bitcoin info! Exciting stuff for sure!

    December 9, 2013

  • Henry W.

    Bitcoin NOOB here. But I am intrigued and have done a fair amount of research over the last 2-3 weeks. I look forward to gleaning info from the more experienced folks.

    December 9, 2013

  • Paul S.

    Do I need to confirm an harder than I already have? Consider this having done so. CYA tomorrow (unless it's all ice between Pegram and West End...)

    This is a hard confirm.

  • Rory S.

    Tuesdays are perfect for me - its my day off work. Sundays could work if in the late afternoon.

    December 9, 2013

  • Nathanael R.

    Would attend if it were on a weekend.

    Anyone hang out in the #nashvillephp room? If so, feel free to say hi, my nick is f1gm3nt

  • Conor

    Is anyone going to be trading or networking? I'm interested in meeting miners or buyers. I'm a pretty heavy day trader and looking for both resources

    1 · November 30, 2013

    • John R. M.

      I'm right there with you. As an early adopter, I feel like for the past few years I've seen mostly confused faces whenever I open my mouth!

      I would be excited to hear about trading. I've registered with a few exchanges and have been working on a few bots. I use to mess around with MetaTrader.

  • Barbara H.

    I would love to attend this meeting but I work nights in Rutherford County. Would you consider a late evening weekend meetup in the future?

    December 3, 2013

  • Alex P.

    I work in Franklin during the day, so I won't be able to make this first meetup. Hopefully I can connect with everyone online until I get a chance to meet everyone!

    1 · November 26, 2013

    • John R. M.

      As do I, Alex! We're going to try different times for meetups in the future, to figure out what works best.

      November 30, 2013

    • Alex P.

      Sounds good. I'll be sure to respond to the poll.

      November 30, 2013

  • Luke S.

    Really excited about all the interest in this group. Also, if you didn't know (I didn't), there's a Nashville Facebook group and subreddit. Check 'em out!

    If a nighttime meetup works for the majority of members, we can change things up after this initial lunch meeting. My hunch is the group won't really get going until after the holidays.

    2 · November 30, 2013

    • John R. M.

      I agree, after the holidays is when I expect this group to start picking up. Now is the perfect time to reach out to people who might be interested and get them to join, though!

      Also, I created a poll to figure out when would work best for meeting times: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Ordered equipment for a mining rig, hope to share some info on the build and the results.

  • Scott M.

    Will try to make it. Would be easier after work hours or weekends.

    1 · November 29, 2013

    • John R. M.

      Great feedback Scott, thanks. We'll experiment with different meeting times for future meetings!

      November 30, 2013

  • Dayne W.

    Will try my best to be there to learn from you guys!

    2 · November 28, 2013

    • John R. M.

      We're happy to have you and share what we know!

    Looking forward to this

    I have an iteration reveal right before this, hopefully it's fast so I can get downtown :D

    November 20, 2013

  • John R. M.

    I'd love to attend, but unfortunately I'll be out of town all that week. I do prefer evenings or weekends, personally, but my schedule is a little flexible.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
