Join an Upcoming Ricochet Meetup

We continue to be delighted by the many Ricochet members who organize and attend meetups around the country (and, occasionally, the world). These events give them the opportunity to meet in person and continue the conversations begun here on the site. Here’s a sampling of some of the meetups that are currently in the works:

Washington D.C. (March 8)

Charlotte. North Carolina (April 11-13)

Mackinac Island, Michigan (June 26-29)

There are also plans being hatched for a late April/early May event in Philadelphia and a date TBD event in Columbus, Ohio. Visit these links to get involved and be sure to stop by Ricochet member 6foot2inhighheels ’website featuring information on upcoming events. And let us know if we’ve missed one.

Remember, these events are by members for members. If there’s not one in your area, feel free to put it together yourself. And remember to take pictures and post about the events here on Ricochet.

Want to get one started or tell other members about one that’s already in the works? Let them know in the comments.

    Kirsten Weiss and I would like to organize an SF Peninsula meet-up at B Street and Vine restaurant in San Mateo.  Any chance we could get Peter Robinson and/or Paul Rahe to make the Long March from Palo Alto to join us?

    Maybe sometime in April?  Any dates look good for people?

    My experience has been that the awesome editors do their best to make it to the meet ups when they can.

    The key here is to remember that Ricochet is a dynamic conversation site where posts can get buried quickly, and some will miss the news of meet ups.  Ricochetmeetup.com stands like a bill board listing all the current meet ups with the links you need.  To ensure you’re listed, contact me via Ricochet PM, or Melissa@ricochetmeetup.com, or by picking up the phone: 517-388-1789 (voice only)  517-694-8792 (text only)

    At last night’s Phoenix meet-up a plot for a Sizzling Summer Southwest Soiree was let out of the bag. Looking at early August.

    Even I missed the original posting on this one.  More’s the reason for the website ricochetmeetup.com which posts all the meet ups on one page, in order.

    We can do that!  Contact me if you have a date in mind.  Works best if Peter and Ed are in town and can entertain us with their wit and wisdom.

    I don’t know if this is a selling point or an anti-selling point, but I’m like 90% sure I’m going to NC and like 60% sure I’m going to MI.

    Well, I’m doing both.  Mackinac Island, surrounded by the straights looks a lot like a Caribbean island in late June.  Gorgeous!  And lots of fun too.  I hope to see you there :)

    We need one in Chicago before the big shindig on Mackinac Island one to build momentum.

    I would organize it, but it would be poorly organized.  I would just say let’s meet at Yak-Zies on Thursday night and wear a funny hat so we know it’s you.

    There is also a Ricochet Meet Up Facebook page you can join!

    Congrats. you have just organized your first Meetup. Pick a date and time and its done.  (FYI that would be the 5th Chicago meetup.  So I’m not kidding, Pick a Date and Time and they will show up. )  By the way, if you like Baseball and tailgating, I plan to do one at Miller Park before a Brewers game.

    Absolutely true.  But remember to PM me or send an email to Melissa@ricochetmeetup.com so I can help publicize it. It’s easy for even a dedicated reader to miss posts, but Ricochetmeetup doesn’t bury anything.
