I am very happy that you are the first to reply! I was thinking of you when I posted & consider your participation in any NA-VFW type gathering to be pretty much essential. I would also love to meet you and your family of course!
I skimmed through the 2009 Ann Arbor gathering notes & would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts on why that didnt really come together & what we can do differently this time to ensure more participation. For one thing, how far is too far for you personally to travel? Ann Arbor still seems like a great option to me - particularly with you there. If you are up for hosting again, I would like to come out there!
I would also like to help make one or more VF events happen out here in Cascadia. Portland seems ideal to me but there are certainly other great options too. I would love to see a traveling VF gathering where we spent a day or two in a several places! Here in Cascadia we have several very vegan-friendly cities all within a fairly short distance of each other that are well connected by public transit so it is very easy to do.
So dear readers, what will get *you* involved?
