Meet up in south Jersey?

  • Needs a date

  • Barnes & Noble Booksellers

    The Court at Deptford II, 1553 Almonesson Road, Deptford, NJ (map)

  • We've recently had a number of folks join the group from south Jersey (Burlington / Camden / Gloucester counties) and the book club in Mount Laurel has been doing well for itself. So, who'd be up for a Meetup in south Jersey? Maybe a coffee house or a book store? I'm open to suggestions on locations..

      Hi, Christine! That link just opens a blank page on my computer. Thanks for trying, though.

      January 19, 2014

    • Andy

      Charles, that FB group does exist - page link is https://www.facebook.c...­. Doesn't look like there's been any activity there in quite a while though.

    Hey folks, haven't stopped in here in a bit. I was the group organizer when I posted this 2 or 3 years ago. At the time, not enough people indicated interest to do it and then I handed off the group due to Real Life issues. The group settings allow only organizers to create meetups. The assistant organizers are from back when I owned the group and as far as I know are not actively involved here, so you'd need to contact Todd Dashoff the current group owner. I've got more free time these days and have messaged him to see if he needs assistant organizer help but haven't heard back. In the meantime, getting together in Deptford would have to be an unofficial thing organized via this thread or the message boards. Andy

      Thanks for the response and update! Well, the group name is "Philadelphia Sci-Fi...", so I'm thinking we can start setting up events in Philadelphia and suburbs. There's so much fun stuff these days to do and talk about, it'd be a shame to let a perfectly good meetup group go dead.

      I'll reach out to the original organizer and see if he still checks his email.

      Let's get our geek on, folks!

    I looked at the Organizers page and the head Organizer for this meetup group has not logged in for over 7 months. The Organizers and their assistants are the ones who can post meetings to the meetup calendar. So if you want them to put something on the calendar for this then you will have to look for one of the Assistant Organizers who has actually logged in recently.

    Guys: I am SO FRIGGIN' behind schedule, and I'm still on the West Side of Philadelphia, not anywhere near the bridge yet. I'm not going to make it tonight, I am SO sorry -- I was REALLY looking forward to this and thought if I could push it hard enough I could make it. No way. My apologies to the group again . . . please schedule another, SOON? OK? Maybe a little later on a Friday next time? Thank you!

    The first meetup of the South Jersey Sci-Fi group is this Friday September[masked] at the Barnes & Noble (Starbucks) in Deptford NJ. The address is 1553 Almonesson Rd Deptford NJ. We will be meeting at 630 pm until 830 pm. Anyone interested in any aspect of sci-fi/fantasy is welcome to attend. Comics, Books, Movies, TV, Cons, Cosplay... Whatever nerdy culture you are into --
    we want you for our group!
    This group is open to people from age 18 and up.

    The first topic for discussion will be Sci-Fi/fantasy in pop culture now vs. Sci-fi/fantasy outside of pop culture then. We want to hear your stories of growing up geeky and the difference in influence of Sci-fi over the decades.

    Please email this posting if interested in attending.

    September 23, 2013

    Just joined, but, I'd love to meet up at the Deptford Barnes and Noble. Days for me are dicey since I work in center city though. I can be there by 7:00pm though. Weekends are free for me.

  • Andy

    Hi folks! Looks like we have a few takers for a SJ meetup. Do me a favor and post what days of the week are good for you - due to my job, weekends are bad for me from next week through Labor Day. Weeknights are good for me except Thursdays. How about you?
