    Marsha I'd be happy to hitch a ride with you. If you are in D.C. I can meet you at a designated spot along the way. Perfect for me would be at an exit off route 66- The Marymount one at North Glebe Rd. Let me know by making a post on this MEET UP page. Ana

    Hey all! I'm hoping to make it tomorrow for the 6:45 talk, then hang out until around 10 or so. It'll be my first Meetup with this group, and I'm bringing a friend. If anyone's interested in picking a specific time to meet up, I'd suggest after the sky tour - maybe around 9:30?

      Great point. I'm flexible, if someone thinks of a good time!

    Kristine, NOVAC is hosting the event and it is open to the public. I will be manning the food table and will have a name tag.

      Yes indeed -- just wanted to give members of this group an opportunity to meet each other, in addition to the NOVAC crowds!

    Unfortunately, it looks like I'm not going to be able to make it to this event after all! Is anyone willing to be the event host (choose a specific time and place for those interested to meet up at the event)?
