What we're about
On March 2018 we will celebrate our 10th year anniversary. In June 2016, we started video taping our guest speakers. Internationally known historian, researcher, best selling author, Publisher and world-wide conference presenter Richard Dolan is a local member and attends all meetings, often speaking to the group.
Before you consider joining this group, please read our photo policy first. We are a private Meetup group and non-members cannot see your profile photo. Our policy is that you add a CURRENT full-face photo ONLY of just yourself with no one else in the photo. No couples photos-even if you are both joining. None of the following please... no sunglasses, no photo-shopping, UFO's, Aliens, babies/kids, bikes/cars/motorcycles, animals or pets, cartoons, landscapes, flowers/trees....Just you, please. There is a very good reason why we require this. This helps organizers and members put a face with your name. Please use your real first name, not initials and not a "popular character", etc .
NOTE: We would like you to live within a 30 mile radius to ensure participation in meetings. If you don't attend meetings regularly/semi-regularly, you won't get anything out of them.
For specific reasons, no one under 18 is permitted to attend these meetings.
Please use you real legal name, no made up names, etc. (Example Bill or William) You don't have to add your last name unless you wish to.
Please answer the 5 profile questions in detail, not just one word. Be specific in your answers.
