One of the factors in picking a time is the location -- downtown SF, right near the stadium. So I think Alan is keeping an eye on what the Giants are doing, and that factors into it.

Good point. Wouldn't want to deal with game day crowds! ;-)

P.S. just checked --
Giants vs. Dodgers weekend April 9th-10th  :o
no home game weekend of 16th-17th  :)
Giants vs. Miami at SF on following weekend 23rd-24th  :o
No home game weekend April 30th-May 1st  :)

So I guess April 16th-17th or 30th-May 1st
Whatever works for most people, obviously!
Thanks again, Alan, for putting this together!

Thanks, Deb! I also checked to make sure there isn't a big event happening that might flood the area with people and Sunday, May 1 looks like a good day!

Three things:

  • Reminder bump! May 1 is just around the corner.  ;D
  • I messed up and completely blanked out that I'm going to be on vacation on the day of the Meetup! I'll be on a flight to Hawaii right around that time, so I'll wave from the sky, but unfortunately, I won't be able to attend.
  • The Meetup is still on! Luckily for the group, Diane Patterson has kindly agreed to fill in for me, so she'll be there early to snag a table and chairs and kicks things off. Thank you, Diane!

I'm sorry that I won't be there, but I'll see you at the next one in June.

I'm actually going to make this one. Should I look for a name tag or something or just yell out, "KBoards Meet up!"

I will have some signs on my table. Periodically I will also yell, "Prove it! Tell me your ASIN numbers!"

It was great getting together in real life! It's great to talk shop with other shopkeepers.  ;D

It truly was a Bay Area meetup with people coming from the East Bay, Peninsula, and the City.

I'll look at dates for October.

I'll keep this thread updated, but I've also set up a mailing list just for this group, so you can sign up here:

http://alanpetersen.com/kboards-wc-meetup/

I will only send out emails about upcoming Meetups and nothing else, so no worries there.

I signed up for the newsletter. I live in Southern California, but I do visit the Bay Area sometimes - beautiful place.
