    This August marks 5 years of TFO and every year I try to organize a picnic or BBQ in Southern California to celebrate. Last year was a bit of a flop (mostly my fault) but this year is a good milestone. 5 awesome years of this great community! This is most definitely cause for celebration!
    So, with the goal being to attract as many members as possible to our 5 year anniversary party - what, and where, and when shall we do it?!
    Some limitations - Southern California (S of Santa Barbara?) and sometime in late August or September. Other than that, I'm pretty open to whatever will encourage the most members to show up and meet each other - take photos - etc.

    I actually have an idea that I don't know if anyone else is up for, for those of us that do not live in California we could honor the 5 year Anniversary of TFO and have a get together of our own. I know a few of the members on the forum that live in Colorado that are in an hour radius. We could post pictures of our get together and such and others could do the same.. We would of course honor your date Josh. Just throwing it out there. Sound weird?

    How about August 25th? That way it is still in August to honor our month and it's on a Saturday. :D

    I've never been able to participate because no one lives near me, however, this year, I found quite a few members in Fresno, Visalia and Madera:

    msameer
    norman2011
    trasi
    68merc
    danadale18
    pumpkinpie
    wildchild6771
    tortoiselover18

    That's enough people to make a party, huh? Shall we get together at my house, or do you want to get together at a local park or restaurant? I'll send each on of these folks a PM inviting them to the 5 year reunion here in Fresno. I hope we can make it work this year.

    Wish I could be there! But I like this idea of others meeting up locally who cannot get to South Cali.

    Would love to see some pictures of the get together!

    Anyone in New Hampshire/ anywhere in New England and wants to get together, by all means. :D
