There were games of chance? I don't think this was clearly explained in the initial planning stages.

 Just think if I would've shown up!

 

:lol:

 

 

 

 I thought the guys looked pretty snazzy. I think a future DC meet-up has potential of being one of the best yet.

 

 Food for thought though: A Baltimore Meet-up would be easier parking and traffic-wise, just saying. The rush hour traffic around DC is horrendous.

Great idea.

True, but there are a lot more SF members in DC than Baltimore. I would consider attending a Baltimore meetup if it was held at a MARC train-accessible location.

I would totally support this initiative.

After writing this, I think you are honour-bound to show up at the next meet up and show us how it's done.

First off, Unbel's stingray shoes elevated the elegance factor by several orders of magnitude. This group needn't make any apologies. 

 

Secondly - what Unbel said.

You mean this black-tie thing?

It was a good time. We should have another one, maybe either just before or just after the hot season.
