    No one answered any of my questions about carpooling to this event. I am not pleased by the organization of this meetup group.

    Is there anyone who is charge of this group to respond to questions left on this meetup group? I asked a question about one month ago and received no response. Thank you.

    I really want to attend, but I dont have a car and the nearest metro is not close enough to walk. I live in Arlington, VA. Is there anyone I can carpool with from Arlington or get a ride from the New Carrollton metro stop. The topic is awesome -- thanks for having it! Thank you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
