This meetup was created without a host; however, Christine has volunteered to coordinate the meetup. It will be her first time as an Event Host!

    Sadly, only made the last movie (was driving back from PA), but still an excellent experience. Look forward to more.

    If you still need to purchase your ticket, you can still do so. I just got my ticket online.

    Hello everyone. I just got back from New Zealand. I plan to be at the event an hour before it starts to get a couple of tables for us. I'll have one or two SciFi Fantasy Outpost signs.

    I'll send everyone my number if you need to call or text me.

      I'm afraid I RSVP'd after you sent that, what did it say?

      April 21, 2014

    • Christine M.

      No worries. I'll resend the info.

    Hi there! I'm already going to this event with the Northern VA Geek Club so maybe I will see you all there ... although I have to work and won't be getting there until about halfway through The Two Towers.

    Is anyone interested in being the event host for this meetup? All it involves is being the focal point for folks to gather and letting them know they're good enough, smart enough, and that (doggonnit) people like them.

      I'm in New Zealand right now. Just taking a tiny break right now. This should not be a problem. I should be back home by April 22. Let me know what I do. I will be able to stay for the entire event. But I should be there in the beginning.

      Yes, Christine. I did send an email and really appreciate your stepping up to be the Event Host. This article might be helpful. http://help.meetup.co...­

      Really, all you need to do is email folks a day ahead of time and let them know how to find you (e.g., where you will be, what you might be wearing, whether you might have a sign, etc.). I typically include my cell number in the "day before" email and only share it with the folks who RSVPd. The Drafthouse is first come first served seating, so you may want to save some seats inside the theater and tell folks how to find you.

      Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy to help. And thanks again for stepping up.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
