    Default Mid-Atlantic FV Get-Together - Anyone interested?

    Ceashels and I are considering hosting the first annual Frugal Village Get Together sometime this summer, just NE up 95 from Baltimore, MD.

    We are thinking about reserving a pavillion (cheap hopefully), and having a cookout/pot luck (frugal) with games, fun, and general socialization time.

    We would like to get an idea about how many people would be interested in attending and meeting some of your fellow FVers in person.

    Anyone wanting to attend from FV would be welcome, but since it'd be in Baltimore, I figured the Mid-Atlantic forum was the place to post this.

    Did you know that a 4 year student paying $20,000/year who finances their education graduates with over $103,000 in debt to start? But a student who works and pays cash and takes 6 years to graduate ends with $6,300 in their pocket! So much for "getting a head start by financing!"

    Sounds like fun! I'm about 6 hours away from Baltimore so it's definitely doable. We might be able to come so I'll watch this thread for updates

    Wow, 24 hours and 2 votes. One mine.

    So, maybe we should ditch the idea?

    I'd be interested but there's not a lot of response yet. I say, don't ditch the idea. Leave it out there for a few weeks and see what happens.

    I may be able to come. It would of course depend on my kids and their sports. I am only about 1 1/2 hours from Baltimore, and dh is from there. Sounds like it could be fun

    Mariner Point Park is North East of Baltimore, outside the Beltway, near Joppatowne, MD. It is not "in the city", it's in da burbs.

    Yes. Assuming we book well enough in advance, we should have no problem securing a pavillion for a Saturday.

    Definitely maybe. We're going to Indiana to see DH's sibs sometime this summer and I have a convention I do in Boston in July, so that's out. And, since I'm in New England, it's a bit more of a haul to get there.

    I'm interested, but it's a maybe!
