Glad to see you have taken up as organizer Blair!  :)

I would be happy to pitch in to keep the place running, and I'm thinking maybe other members would as well, to defray the cost to you.   No problem here with that.  We can split the cost as far as I'm concerned.  Maybe we could ask if members would like to pitch in... or do a little fund raising event so we all pitch in together.   Maybe a Geek-Fest of some sort?   As for NerdNYC I am on their mailing list and have done some GMing at their events in the city.  Lots of fun!   Good group there.   Maybe we can take a trek into the city and mind-meld with them sometime?   Also I'll keep my eyes open for events that might be of interest.  One that comes to mind off the top of my head is http://dorkbot.org ... they run some pretty great events.   Might be worth checking out.  Ok, anyway, game on and stuff.

I think it might not be a bad idea to do some flyers we can then distribute to various geek-friendly venues around Westchester, including the comic book and game stores, and maybe the local Cons (DexCon in July and RetCon on Long Island in August).

Speaking of DexCon, maybe we want to organize a carpooling setup and/or arrange to all get together for dinner or something, depending on who is going?

If it's OK with everyone, I will also pass word along to the NerdNYC board that we're out here for anyone there who may be interested in stuff we're doing.

Good morning,

I noticed that this group was folding.  I decided to pay for another few months, to try to keep nerd/geek culture alive in Westchester.

 

But what to do with this group?  Any ideas?  The movie thing was cool, and we should build on that.  The nerds in the city do "nerd Trivia" once a month at a local watering hole in Manhattan.  Would people be interested in that?  How about an "Arkham Horror" game day at somebody's house?  INdy RPG night? Organizing trips to local cons?

 

I am willing to try to get some things off the ground. Email me back if you have ANY ideas.

 

Blair
