The not-so-fine print: We are looking for people who want to meet other people. On that note, while the shots from you on vacation, you with sunglasses, you in a group picture, you with a silly moustache, you off in the distance in nature, you masked in shadow, your dog and your cat are wicked awesome (seriously, show up to an event so we can discuss and share about it), these scenes are not a good profile pic.
We need a face shot, a clear face shot, a close-up that takes up the whole thumbnail - so when you RSVP to an event, we can wave you over and say, "Hey, so glad you could make it geek friend!" After all, this group is not about anonymity in cyber space, it's about meeting new friends in RL. Also, if you pick a funky name, just think about being called that name by real people, Mr. Zeenafarius and Miss Ann Droid. So, when you RSVP to an event, please tell us your real name in the RSVP notes. Please plan on attending one of our social events so we can get to know you - inactive members will be dropped. Thanks!
We love everything technology (old or new), are willing to wait in line to see the new Burton, Cameron, Jackson, Scott, or Spielberg flick on opening night (with no shame for smuggling in snacks from the grocery store) and love role-playing in whatever form it takes: pen and paper, live-action or online. We have clothing (not costumes) in our closet that would fit well in the 16th century or the 23rd century. We can master any interest that piques our curiosity, whether it be making crème brulee from scratch (kitchen torch!) or building a trebuchet (launch stuff!).
If you are searching for a group where you can enjoy activities such as conventions (sci-fi, ren, comic, steam punk, harry potter, etc.), movies (sci-fi, fantasy, horror), reenactments (civil war, star wars), museums, science fairs, lectures and trustees of reservation sites/activities - then this is the place for you!
This group has activities for all ages, including family friendly events. If an event is family friendly, it will have "FF" in the Meetup title.
Come let your geek flag fly!
