Hey man! Sorry I just noticed this post. I haven’t been around for a while.
Well, it’s been tried once before. We had a good group of chicago area people, but just had some trouble getting everyone’s schedule together to keep it going on a regular basis. We had 3 or 4 meetings but it never really got rolling.
I’d be willing to give it another shot, but I think we’d really have to do a little more planning ahead of time. Figure out some real goals/reason for the group to get together.
Like maybe we could actually come up with a project we could all work on together like a short or something. That way there would be something to attract a diverse group of people with different skills/interests. And there would be an ongoing reason for us to meet.
