Happy Holidays & Our Next Meetup

Los Angeles Domainers,
First off I want to say thanks for joining the group. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and had a chance to spend time with family and friends.
This brings me to the topic of when and where we should hold our first Domaining meetup. I canceled the initial meetup a few months ago because a few members had a little trouble getting to the destination. I want to make sure this time around that we collectively choose a central location which can give us the appropriate space to discuss the domaining industry.
Together we can make this group a success. I am open to any suggestions you may have.
To shed a little light on the organizers of this group I and Morgan Linton share a deep interest in the domaining industry. Morgan runs a very successful blog called www.domainvestors.tv which he actively updates and teaches people through his videos how to profit from there domain registrations. He,also runs a domain brokerage service called Linton Investments which can be found here www.lintoninvestments.com. Through this business he identifies potential buyers for domain names. I am currently utilizing Morgan's domain brokerage service for one of my prized domain names. :)
Now a little about me. I personally run a blog myself called www.dnpimping.com which gives a bit of an edgier view on our industry and have had the privilege of networking with domainers around the world. In addition to this I am a domain investor which has done fairly well in the industry. My last sale was a domain name that I registered for under $10 through Yahoo Domains (televise.org) and flipped for $500. Although small in comparison to some of the larger acquisitions which occur in our industry, I tend to focus on either flipping or developing. Collectively I have profited in the 4 figure range for domain names that were normally hand-regged. To put it simply, domains are a great investment and will continue to be a great investment for years to come. Development wise I am working on developing a geo domain.
I would love to schedule a meetup before this year is up. If the majority of the members in this group feel the same way, then blast me with a few emails in regards to this! You can reach me at [address removed] or reply to this email and I should still get it. Remember to your opinion on when our first meetup should occur and where.
