Wouldn't this be more fitting in the "Café"?

Re: Have You Ever Met a Fellow CPFer\'s In Person?

I uh... don't think so. Unless some of the guys I've met from TheHighRoad.org are also members here. I've referred several folks that I've meet in stores and stuff here.

Just last night, I received two lights in trade and put them in my pocket after playing with them. I already had two lights on my person so that brought the total to 4. I shipped off my lights and mentioned that to the guy at the post office. Another guy there said 'flashlights, huh?' so we got to talking. He's not a forum member but I'm sure he'll be along sometime.

Also, he was carrying the first U2 I've ever seen in person.

/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif Cyril, that was funny!

Yes, I've met two other Kansas City-area CPFers: ddaadd and slavers. Both are like me: afflicted with flashaholicism. A sad, sad state. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jpshakehead.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif

How would you know, barring some kind of organized gathering. I live in the land of the blue hair (Florida). These folks still talk about the invention of the light bulb, as though it were yesterday. They still use candles.

I met a whole bunch at the 2004 SHOT show in Las Vagas.
Should have taken picks with names and E-mail etc.

Re: Have You Ever Met a Fellow CPFer\'s In Person?

Dan - you gonna be there this year? I missed meeting too many folks last time! I think I'll just put a big sign one me this year stating "Hi, I'm Darell, come tell me who the hell you are!"

Yeah, I've met a couple of CPFers. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Are you kidding? We here in the South San Fran bay area meet all the time! We've had, gosh 5 or 6 get bar-b-q/dinners together.

Plenty people here traveled down to So. California at a Cambria meet last summer.

Actually, it was the other way around - they kept pestering us!

Re: Have You Ever Met a Fellow CPFer\'s In Person?

As far as I'm aware, I met just one. Though I haven't seen him on CPF in several years - I can't even remember his CPF handle anymore. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jpshakehead.gif I remember showing my Arc LS prototype to him near the intersection of Denny Way and Broadway Ave sometime in August or September 2001.
This of course does not count DavidW, who I met in Jr. High school in Alaska's panhandle back in the early-1980s.

I've never seen anyone in person, since we are only three here in Spain we should make the first "Spain's Get Together" ;

I've met Snakebite and Draco in person at a ham radio festival. Snakebite was kind enough to give me some useful tips on repeaters, and Draco showed me his HID spotlight. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
