Every location will be inconvienent for someone. Come on guys, it's just a little driving for the sake of community. You wouldn't believe how much some groups drive to meets, I drive 150 miles every year for a 1 day BMW meet.

And you're enjoying every minute of the drive as long as there is no traffic

As for roving meets, absolutely. They key to central meeting places whenever possible is the issue for those who are dependent on others to drive them.

I've got Aquatic Warehouse at least interested in a 'scaping demo. It sounds like the new store in OC (Ocean Blue? Too lazy to look again) is at least a bit interested. Now we need an LA/San Fernando Valley/etc location to round things out (maybe riverside, too?).

We also can't overlook house meetings. These can be smaller, informal meetings. I believe iunknown has already volunteered to host one of these.

I don't mind traffic, the relationship I'm in wouldn't work if I minded traffic. he's 70 miles away in LA.

I overlooked the fact that some people dont' have rides, my appologies.

I like the idea of rotating our meeting place.

If we have our meeting in Aquatic Warehouse, can we do plant swaps? I know some store owners don't allow that though. Just asking.

I don't know how AW would handle it. On the flip side, I'd work it this way:
We meet at AW for a demonstration, guest speaker, whatever. When that is done, we set a time for a local eating establishment (there are plenty on Clairemont Mesa BLVD) and while eating lunch or whatever we do a plant swap there.

Mike,
Just as long as we don't get the "cheeseburger special" at Cheetah's. I don't think my wife would like that.
But I agree that there are tons of good food in that area of town, having worked there for many many moons.

Dustin,
There's a place the local BMW motorcycle club uses nearby as a meeting place. Plus, I don't know if Cheetah's is at full speed after the bribery thing. Know something I don't?

San Diego mexican > Los Angeles mexican > Orange County mexican closer to the border for the win. there is only ONE mexican place in Orange County with carne asada fries, and that's because it is only the most northern restaurant of an SD chain.
