  3. I live in Cincinnati- and there’s a meetup here!! (unfortunately, I will be in Florida at that time… maybe I should check out meetups in FL?)

  4. The closest meetup is in Downingtown, Pa.
    Thanks for the giveaway….you are a kind and giving community.

  10. I’m getting ready to move to the Chicagoland area…looks like the closest one is about 45 min from me. So, once we get all settled in I will sign up!

  11. not sure…I think the closest one I could find was Greensburg, Pa…which isn’t exactly in my backyard…so unfortunately nothing too close for me 🙁

  12. The closest meet up is in town – Portales, NM! Can’t even believe there’s one so close! We’re basically in the middle of nowhere!

  13. The closest meetup for me is not really that close. I would say Orlando. Maybe there will be a closer one soon!

  14. Falls Church! Looks like there’s only 2 of us, but I’d be happy to host..not sure how to though 🙂

  19. I did not see one near me in Northern California.
    But I still want to be a part of it. Is a person able to sign up as an individual and not as a group?

    • Absolutely! Sign up and be the host of your own meetup. Grab your girlfriends, invite others and create a place more folks can meet up!

  20. I guess the closest is in Pittsburgh, PA for now.. BUT as of July 2012, my family will be in Kenya for two years.. no meet-ups there yet! 🙂

  21. I’m not really sure where the closest (in)RL meet up is. It says there is one in Alpharetta, but there isn’t anyone signed up. The closest that has people signed up is in Gainesville, GA.

  22. My closest meet up is in Burlingame, CA! I hope I win this canvas print. I’ve been looking at it for weeks!! 🙂 Do we get to pic the color it comes in? 🙂

  27. Hmmm…the closest meet up is either West Horsley, England or the Philipines. I am in Kenya and there are none here. I live pretty much in the middle of nowhere so even if I started one I would be the only participant. I am looking forward to hearing well it goes for everyone! Thanks for your encouragement!

  28. Woops, I guess there is one right here in San Diego, I’ll make only number 3, & no location yet, but yay! 🙂

  33. the closest is either Burlingame, CA or Gilroy, both of which are over 2 hours away from me… So That means I have to pray for a closer location… 🙁

  34. Thanks for the chance to win such a nice gift. The nearest meeting is not all that far from me, Arlington, Texas. However, even though it is only a couple of hours away, unfortunately, it is in an area where I won’t drive. : )

  35. Horseheads, New York. I am originally from a small town right next to Gilroy, CA, so I was absolutely delighted to see one is being held there. I am going to convince my mom to go!!

  36. from the map it looks like the nearest meet up site is going to be my own house in azusa! not many people signed up yet out here!

  37. We are currently in Ethiopia (three years!) but heading stateside in 3 months! Happy Holidays to all in the US and around the world. Christ is coming! sb

  38. The closest right now is in St. Petersburg, FL. Hoping to help get one started right here in Valrico!!!

  39. The closest Meetup is in Meridian or Boise ID. Both are very close by. I also intend to host one as well. Hoping to get signed up as a Christmas gift.

  40. The closest to me is in Charleston, SC…I think that’s at least a 4 hour drive from me. Maybe a closer one will pop up!

  41. Looks like Gainsville, GA is closest.
    I live closer to Athens, but there are no hosts for Athens.

  42. It’s hard to say whether the Austin one or the Dripping Springs one is closer to me. This could be fun!

  43. Says a group is getting started in my town, but no members. That would put the closest group with members in St. Paul, MN. Which is about 5 hours away.

  45. I am thinking that the Louisville, Kentucky Meetup would be
    the closest place for me…

  46. There is one in American Fork -5 miles away with no members or SLC with 2 members

  47. Hmmm…not sure….it says the closet one to me is Fond du Lac, but there aren’t any members in that one, so I’m going to go with Sheboygan, WI. Thanks for the opportunity!

  48. If I undersatnd correctly there should be one here in Tulsa that just started and will have the first meeting in 5 months.
