I enjoy getting people together and the reason I took over the Baltimore Area Singles group was to get my sailboat group CSA back on its feet. I was asked in 2009 to try to help the group build up its membership again with only 20 members at the time. This group CSA has been around since 1980 and I didn't want to see it fold. The 1st year into CSA sailing group as social chair I was able to get membership up to 120 members and still going strong with some of my best friends in it now. Doing all kinds of events at my house Crab feasts, football games, Pot luck sailing learning sessions Fall, Winter. We are always in need of skippers with sailboats and new members. You don't need a sailboat boat to join just an interest in sailing. People ask me what size is my boat where I tell them I don't have time for a boat my job is to get people out on a boat.
Carsons Creekside has been my biggest meetup lately, with Sunset Cove being a close second. If McAvoys gets its 2$ crabs back that would be third. Of course the meetups I do for CSA paid members (only 40$ a year) at my house will always be on top since I have been with this group since 2003. I do mostly north and east of Balto Area. Where I am comfortable going to.
Yes I have been hosting to many events and it is time for new members to get there own groups together. You can get people to come to other sites that you are a member of with this group. Even cross posting to get more people involved. My thanks to Dan for getting this BAS site back up and going again, since it became Baltimore Washington Annapolis Metropolitan Social group. Before this group was Baltimore Nitelife. n
