Hi all,

I'm from the central CA thread. I live in Coalinga, CA about 75 miles southwest of Fresno. If anyone is planning a meeting in the central valley, I'd love to join in.

(edit by moderator: added new local group leader info at top.)

I live in Fresno.

Let's work on a GTG.  Also, I just learned the RLC convention is going to be in Fresno this year.  We should have some sort of presence there.  If I'm slow replying here (sometimes I am), try emailing me.

Since there's a new SoCal thread, I'll put my name up here.  I'm in the LA area.  I can't commit to being able to make it for a get together in the area but there's a chance if we get enough people interested in one.

I just wanted to say that the California local groups have a special place in my heart; I was born and raised in San Diego. I hope California keeps its ranking as highest FSP member state. You'll have to work at it, but I have faith in you guys. Smiley

I am writing the A Native Californian's Guide To Getting Along In Free State New Hampshire. It might appear in the Quill & will definitely appear on the website in the next few months.

But not as percent of the populace Undecided  We're pretty low in that sense.

Amanda you are Psycho don't you have a kid too?HuhHuh??  I am really impressed with everything you do but frankly I get the feeling that you are heading for a burnout!  My personality type encourages burnouts because I obsess about one thing for a few months and then I get bored and move on to something else.  To keep with the FSP I have to have alot of starts and stops to my obsession to keep it going.  Anyway all I'm saying is that in your plans you should set up the structure so that when you start getting overwhelmed you can fall back shift more work off to the people below you for a week or so, or delegate decision making to certain board members for awhile.

Let me know when and where! I'm in Fresno M-F. Maybe a dinner time meeting to start? Or a Saturday lunch? Please let me know if you'd like some help with emailing people.

I would be very happy to find a new local group leader for Southern California (i.e. south of San Jose) and let Ryan concentrate his energies behind the Las Vegas region.  The area is too vast and has too many members to effectively operate as a single local group -- I just set it up that way to get it off the ground.

If you would like to be a local group leader in Southern California, please contact me and I'll split the existing group in two.

I'm hoping to maybe help pick up the slack for the LA area after May 12.  I am far too busy until then to do anything.

Las Vegas is too far for me but an LA area one is doable.  I'll keep an eye on the board if other people are interested.

(Mostly I'm looking forward to a N.H. one! Wink)

Keith,

FYI, I think I'm kinda sorta the unofficial self-appointed local group leader for Fresno and the San Joaquin valley.  I don't think we should necessarily split Central CA into its own group, though, since I'm really not able to take on the 'title' on a long term basis (not enough time *and* we're moving this year).

Are you still moving to Keene in October? Do you have a bio for theat area? I still haven't decided where we'll be making our new home. It would be nice to relocate with others from central CA. Especially for the first winter, lol.

Any suggestions from anyone would be great. I have background in medical and mental health, and I'll be a certified parlegal by the time we move in 2005.

Thanks...talk to you soon.

Yup.

Keene has its own page in my NH trip report.  The report was based on our visit last November.  We spent two of those days in Keene.  That page is just based on our two days of experiences there, so it doesn't include stuff like stats, jobs, whatever.  But all that is avialable elsewhere.  Keene *does* have winter Wink  Here's the report:

Enjoy!

P.S.  I think I've settled on April 15 for a Fresno meeting.  I'll post details when I know a location.

 Greetings from Fresno,

It is my great pleasure to announce a Tax Day gathering of Free State Project
members in Fresno, California on April 15th.  The meeting will serve two
purposes.  First, it will be a great chance for us to meet and get to know
each other without having to take a trip all the way out to New Hampshire
(yet).  Second, it will be an opportunity to invite guests who may be
interested in learning more about the Free State Project and meeting some of
our members.

In addition to April 15th being Tax Day, it's also New Hampshire's Tax Freedom
Day - the day of the year that the average New Hampshire resident has finally
worked enough to pay all of their taxes.  California's Tax Freedom Day isn't
until April 29th, so this meeting will mark the beginning of two extra weeks
that we Californian's have to work to pay our taxes as compared to those
living in New Hampshire.  Find out more about Tax Freedom Day at the meeting
and learn how you can get two weeks of your life back every year just by
moving to New Hampshire!

Who:            Anyone interested in the Free State Project, especially members.
When:          Thursday, April 15th, 6:00 p.m.
Where:        Hometown Buffet, Shaw and Peach, Fresno, CA
                    559-323-4557
What:          Dinner, fun, friends, and information about the FSP and NH.

Feel free to just show up.  An RSVP would be appreciated, however, to Varrin
Swearingen at varrin@freestateproject.org.  You can direct any questions there.

Hope to see some of you on Tax Day!!!
