Our name could be Legion, for we are many.
From Springfield VA to York PA, WV to Delaware and the Eastern Shore - we populate an area encompassing many hundreds of square miles.
We range from the loud, raucous variety to the introverted, sensitive, at times painfully shy variety.
This message is to ALL ASSes - where do you want to meet (specific venues would be helpful as I live north of Baltimore and only in the past year have started getting out much - I know very little of many areas) and what do you want to do? Since I am but one ASS, are there those amongst you who would bravely step up to host an event in your area?
And please - to the more shy and diffident ASSes - PLEASE - this group is all about you. Small meetups, quiet places, whichever-whatever, I have no problem with INTP-only meetups! (the only problem is someone else has to host because I, alASS, am decidedly an "E" and therefore would not be allowed...not unless you would let me, in which case I would bring tape for my mouth and shut the hell UP)
I heard once of an ASS who went to a meetup and then sat in the parking lot, then left - never having garnered the courage to venture in to meet the others. I want there to be events that everyone can look forward to attending without social anxiety.
I just need to know what those would look like and where they would be.
Finally - for other Organizers who wish to have their events posted on this site - I think the Message Boards are the best option to get information out about events which other groups might be having. Jeff and I have discussed this at length and we both feel very similarly - we are protective of our ASSes.
So please - if you have an event you want us to know about, please post it here on the message board...give us all the details and sure, the link to your meetup event page is fine.
I am going to email this around to the membership so all do know - continue to scope out the message board for potentially interesting activities hosted by other groups - but our events are for ASSes, and ASSes only (but of course you can bring friends - uh, if you have any)
Thanks - ASSette Linda
