    Gathering of the WuLin?

    Not sure if my memory is serving me properly here or I am getting confused with other and/or older boards, but didn't there use to be gatherings/get-togethers from time to time?

    I think it'd be pretty great if we had one every so often for different regions (quarterly, bi-annually, annually, whatever works) like SouthEast, NorthEast, West Coast etc.

    We could make a weekend out of it. Different folks could offer seminars (not over-priced fancy things, but affordable for tcma brethren [and sisters too]), with social/hang-out time etc.

    I dunno - just trying to think of ways to meet folks here offline.

    Not that I remember.

    There was the annual gathering at taiji legacy.

    That was just a social gathering though.

    Craigslist - Casual Encounters would probably be more productive.

    People in the NE of our nation should come out and meet up at the Tai Chi Gala as its a decent venue and I will be there teaching.

    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    Let me know if anyone is going to come out. We can photo ourselves and share it on line as well with the magazine.

    Great to hear about the events, however too far and $$$ for me here in GA.

    I know that people do randomly bump into each other at events, but kinda thinking about making specific get-togethers.

    Sean - if we're able to hang (Sunday?) this is something I'd definitely like to discuss with you.

    Nah we'll hang for a minute. $$$ is tight like ugly sheep in North Alabama though. May have to just hang there & hopefully Frodo won't have to go bail out a little raver chick this time.
