I'm excited and happy about the meetup tomorrow night in Silver Spring, Md. It looks like there are at least 5 definites besides for me and my husband. Hopefully more.
To recap, this Saturday, Aug. 11, in Silver Spring, Maryland, from 6:30pm - 10pm there will be a meetup of Maryland/Virginia/DC Kossacks. The location is Downtown Silver Spring at the Panera, 8541 Georgia Avenue Silver Spring, MD 20910. We can meet at the Panera at 6:30pm, then if the weather is nice we can go to the fountain area and continue to talk.
I wrote a diary last Friday about getting together a meetup with the Maryland/Virginia/DC people and got a good response, there is definitely interest in getting together. If you didn't see that diary, take a look at http://www.dailykos.com/...
I've been a member of Daily Kos for five years and so far I've only met one other Kossack -- sreeizzle2012 . Hopefully he will be able to join us, because he's the most enthusiastic, optimistic person I've ever known.
If you'd like to meetup and haven't already contacted me, please send me a Kosmail and we can exchange cell phone numbers and whatever else will help us to recognize each other. I'm going to try to find an orange shirt -- even though orange is definitely not my color.
11:14 PM PT: There is some parking in the lot at the Panera, but you have a 1 in 10 chance of finding a spot there. But there are some parking garages within a block or two and they will be free on weekends.
