Anyone interested in getting something started (and keeping it going)!

So, I have been playing eve since early 2004 non-stop, except for the last 4 years (long story), and now I'm back and living in the DC / VA / MD metro area (Maryland, Virginia, District of Colombia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, all are welcome).

I would like to propose a monthly gathering, something in the DC / VA / MD area. I will find a good place/activities (was thinking things like, mini-golf, bowling, etc., and eating/drinking of course). Open to suggestions?

Since I'm decently ISK-Rich, I would also like to hand out some Eve Prizes (like a Carrier & Dread Hull, and maybe a PLEX or two as well) every month, we can do it raffle style or it can go to the "winners" of the activities. Other Donations welcome!

Was thinking about the last Saturday of every month starting February 2017. Open to suggestions?

If you are interested, I would also ask to blast it out to everyone you know in that lives in the area, even if you live in Europe or wherever, let your corp mates know!

Thanks for your time and hope to meet up with you all soon.

Enjoy,
Loney

I'm forced to decline regretfully the February date (concurrent with my trip to San Francisco for GDC and Noise Pop 25), but I'm definitely petitioning the higher ups to send me over for a future iteration.

If for nothing else than a stroll through Old Town to lament the closing of Pat Troy's, which admittedly wasn't all that good (or even remotely good to be honest), but was tremendously consistent.

Loney, thank you for posting this and reaching out. I fully endorse this as well. Currently, Feb. 25th looks ok on my end. I'd like to start off with a little round table "who am I" type of thing and tell a little about myself.

I'm a 53 yr old male, resident of Northern Virginia for 49 years (Manassas, Va specifically). You can find my professional info at, https://www.linkedin.com/in/jim-macdiarmid-3825094 if interested. I enjoy most things such as the aforementioned Mini-Golf, Movies, Bowling. I'm a bit out of shape but would like to get back into walking and hiking, if that is something that's on the table.

As far as activities go, I have an idea for an activity I think everyone would enjoy, and it's a bit out of the ordinary. ( LOL no, it's nothing like that, so get your minds out of the gutter silly people) First, has anyone ever had a real paranormal experience? Yes, I'm talking encounters with real ghosts. I've been a paranormal investigator in my spare time (when I'm not playing EVE or working) for the last 7 years, since 2010. I have a place I can get a group into. I do volunteer work for a Civil War Medical Museum in Gordonsville, Virginia called the "Exchange Hotel". This place has been ranked 15th most haunted in the US and has appeared on A&E's "My Ghost Story" show, and also ranked 2nd most haunted in Virginia. The museum is roughly a 2-3 hour drive from the DC area. Donations to the museum are welcome. I will have to talk the management on how much the cost would be. Website for the museum is: www.hgiexchange.com

Regarding EVE, I've been playing since 2008 and have 7 accounts, 1 toon per. I'm mostly Industrial/Mining, with some PVE combat experience running missions.

Any questions, feel free to ask. I look forward to talking to you all more down (or up) the time stream.

Sure, I agree. Positing a bit about yourself, and eve-self is a great icebreaker.

So my birthday is 16th January, so just turned 37 this year, but I started Eve long ago January 2004, shortly after my 24th birthday. Long story short, I started with a hand full of friends and they eventually got bored of eve after 4-8 months and I then acquired their toons. So for my first 6 years of eve I played with about 6 accounts, and gradually got to my peak in 2013 with 37 accounts about 80 toons.

CCP broke eve for me with the "illegal" making of multiboxing and changing the mining mechanics back then. I was out of game for about 4 years to to some IRL thing and the feeling i kinda beat EVE with my amassed ISK fortune, Owned Revenant, and all the fancy toys ISK could buy so i decieded to take a break.

I have always been and Industrialist/Market/Trade person and only have 1 PvP account of the 35 (not counting any titan alts that i only really used for Jump bridges back before you could use gates). I am CEO of Cyberdyne R-D (I like to think the first public supercatial construction corp) and over the years about a dozen others.

Anyways, I'm back due to the recent Alpha/Omega clone changes i like and the Skill Injector/Extractors. I won't be able to play 8-12 hour days like i did in my prime years, as over my 4 year hiatus i now have a 3 year old daughter that takes up most of my free time and energy.

I was in the U.S. Military for many years and lived all over the USA and even some other places around the globe. I current, settled down in Alexandria, VA, but am very familiar with the area for many years. Hope to see you all and have drink, eat, and fun together once a month.

Thanks,
Loney

I normally live in Pasadena MD, but I'm out of state for a while. I'll plan on keeping an eye on the mailing list, see if anything's still going on when I get back around to the area.

Sorry for this, however somethings have come up and won't be attending these gatherings. I will be taking a break from Eve for a while. I'll keep an eye on this thread and will let you know when things change.

Sure, not a problem. Like i mentioned, i plan on hanging out and having some fun by myself, if i can get other EVE'ers to show up when they can that is great!

No worries, I mean you can still show up even if you are not active in EVE, I took a 4 year break, but i would have shown up every month if there was something near me. Doors are always open.

There used to be a bunch of us in "VADCMD" in-game but I'm not sure anymore as I moved away from the area a year or so ago. That said I'm moving back to NoVA soon in Feb so I won't be able to make this one but hopefully we can do another one in March or around then.

Not a problem, and if you remember any of their name that live around here feel free to blast them out this link and the ingame mailing list. Thanks.

Okay so I was bored today and decided to look through last 5 years of forums posts and found people that at one time said they lived in the area... then I proceeded to send them all eve mails, 141 peoples and 1 old mailing list to be exact. Let see if we get any bites!

I saw your eve mail this morning. I live out on the Eastern Shore of MD between Salisbury and Berlin. Going back and forth across the bridge makes for a pretty long day but I'm definitely interested. I'll try to keep an eye on the forums, but I think keeping an eve mailing list of interested parties is a really good idea. Personally, I'm not on the forums very often.

I did a few fun trips to the eastern shore this last summer before I left town, one trip to rock hall/tolchester beach, and one to St Michaels. I'd be up for something in that direction when I make it back to the area (which granted, I have no idea when that could be... late summer maybe.) Though maybe something near Annapolis or Kent Island would be more central to more people. I've done a few fun trips to Chincoteague and Ocean City as well, but that sounds somewhat out of the scope of this kind of thing. :)
