Default Richmond area.

The NOVA traffic is a Bear to get around in. trust me i know i have to tavel from Richmond to DC and maryland to work sometimes. I meet a few guy's here in the Richmond area at the Woodcrafters in Richmond. I spoke with the manager there and he like the idea of having the IAP chapter meet at that location just need to set it up. I was trying to get a chapter going here too because it is more centralized than Stafford. Would anyone be interested in starting a chapter here or doing a sub chapter? Need a head count. If it is a lot maybe we may have a seperate chapter.

Now what could be more centralized than beautiful historic Stafford? And the complaint about our "I survived I-95 commute" that we local warriors soooo look forward to everyday?

Now who would possibly would want to miss out on all that fun??? LOL If classes were offered on audio books and given all the time I've spent in traffic, I would have three PHD's by now!!!

Will you be serving some cheese with that whine down in Richmond?? (Just kidding, couldnt resist myself!!)

The VA/DC/MD chapter started as a group of folks mostly in the Norther Virginia area who shared a common interest and met up at the Woodcraft in Springfield. BigRob held the first picnic up in PA. I held the second (and third) one in Stafford, VA, and it was open to anyone who was willing to make the drive. This is how we became such a diverse group of folks from quite a large region. All of this was before the "Local Chapters" section of this updated forum software. The Local Chapter makes it easier to communicate and coordinate with everyone, but was never intended to be the only chapter in the area. If there is enough interest in a Richmond, or Tidewater, or Norfolk, etc area please feel free to start up a new chapter. All it takes is an email to Jeff or to DCBluesman to get a new chapter forum started and you'll well on your way. Folks "in the middle" can be a part of multiple chapters if they wish, no rules saying we can't. And I'll continue to keep the picnics open to anyone willing to make the drive, regardless of which chapter you may prefer. I've also removed the "invite only" setting for the NOVA IAP social group as that may take on a more central role than the Local Chapters as Jeff adds new features to the fourm. But until that time, the Local Chapter forum will be the main source of communication.

For anyone interested in a Richmond, VA chapter, please see this thread:
Richmond, Va

Wanted to give it some visibility here as that section of the forums isn't one I look at very often.
