Well, I was finally able to make it to the LoCo (Local Community) F2F (Face to Face) meeting yesterday. To me, it seemed to be a quite successful event. About 16-18 people made it, which meant that we pretty much took over that entire wing of Mellow Mushroom. The food was definitely top notch as well -- I had a great calzone. It was really great to get a chance to know some of the people from the IRC, even if I didn't get a match between name and IRC nick in all cases.
In the future I (and some of the others) would also like to see meetings with activities or presentations. One idea that was tossed around was an open-source LAN party. We could break out games like openarena, tremulous, and others. Hopefully some of these ideas will come together.
