Straw Poll / Proposal for San Francisco Area mini-meetup

Post by ian_krase » Mon Dec 17, 2018 8:33 pm

I believe a number of fusioneers besides myself live in or near the San Francisco Bay area.

I'm interested in having a mini-meetup some time - at the simplest, we'd all just go and get lunch or dinner at a restaurant some day and chat about fusion, science, vacuum, high voltage, and whatever else.

I'm envisioning sometime in January.


Who would come to such an event, if it were at a convenient time?

What area is practical for you? I was envisioning the East Bay, maybe Berkeley, but that's just one option.

What days are practical for you?

I'm up for a visit. (Have met Ian at flea market). Saturdays are good. Or other day by prior arrangement. :-)

I'm probably interested to meet up. Not sure I would want to drive all the way up to Berkley area. I think Ian, Rich and I are more toward south bay. Let's see if more folks reply and then decide a best central mass meeting local.

I don't check for forum PM's often but the email link for my profile should work to reach me. Ian may also have a direct email and phone from when I bought a pump from him.

Hope more people see this and join in.

Let's try to confirm and work out details as we get closer to a real date.

I would be open to a meet-up. I am also in the south bay area, so that would be more convenient.

Ok, it sounds like South Bay, a Saturday in January is the plan.

I'll come up with a specific date, time, location soon.

Ok, everybody.

How does lunch at noon, January 12, in Santa Clara sound?


If nobody has any objections, I propose pizza.

Sorry for not responding sooner, Ian. I have a conflict on Jan. 12, unless it's a rainy day.
How 'bout the 19th? Or wait until the 12th is closer, then play it by ear?

We don't need to do this by bulletin board, though it could be nice if some lurker signs up. Forum PM's, email, and telephone work.

The 12th and 19th both work for me, and I'm okay with waiting to pick a date.

Update: The 12th no longer looks like it would work.
