Just a suggestion...

It might be fun to have a forum where people can find other board members who live in the same area/region and can arrange for meet-ups and other group activities. There is a current thread in the lounge about meeting other board members and I thought that people might like to post in a forum (perhaps organized by regions/subregions like the MDC board) dedicated to this. Some such groups of BB members do already exist, but this might be a great way for other parents to find/make friends who can be more tangible than virtual if thet'd like to.

I like that idea! Speaking of which -- is anybody else out there in the Phoenix Valley? We're expecting our first in February, and would love to hear from others in the area -- especially since we're still new to the Valley.

I'd like to see this too. Most other boards have regional sections (this one already has a Canada section). I think it would make it much easier for people discuss regional related things and meet other people.

I think this would be great too. Our first baby is due in January and I don't know any other moms here. It would be great if people would be interested in starting a mommies group :)

Can you give us the URL for the MDC board and we'll check it out to see how we could do that here?

Thanks for the tip regarding Mothering local groups. I already contacted the Arizona mommas group and may be meeting them at their next activity.

Thanks again! I always wanted to find a group like this~

We have a Baby Bargains group in the DC area. Here is the link on yahoo groups:

I think you need 50 posts to be a member but I am not sure..try to do a Join This Group and see what response you get from Beth (egolber) who is the moderator.

Yay! Glad to hear that there's a group in this area. I just tried to join, but my yahoo ID is reston_family, so I don't know how the moderator will know that I'm the same person as sarafran on this board...

Ah well. I hope I'll be able to join. Thanks for letting me know!
