I was wondering if anybody would interested in joining a Bigger Pockets meetup group here in the Central Valley - Specifically Fresno - I am surprised to see that there are very so few Bigger Pockets meetup groups around the country and would really like to start one locally up so we can get some like minded thinkers under the same roof at the same time.
I am also trying to determine the best days and times to hold the meetings - many meetings I have seen held at night don't have as much participation cause members prefer to stay home with family in the evening - except maybe on a Friday night - so looking for ideas of what time frame works best - typically , I prefer to have a lunch meeting so everyone is already out and about , and it doesn't interfere with family time and typically have larger turn outs.
If anyone in the area is interested, please let me know - I have been to a few investor groups in the past , but they only happen once a month and in the evening - I am looking to start up something during the day and have weekly get togethers where we can talk about whats new on the market , talk to local hard money lenders and builders, and just create an environment where investors can share ideas and resources. Raise your hand if you think you would be interested in showing up to a meeting like this.

*UPDATE* - the proposed group has been formed as: http://www.meetup.com/Fresno-Bigger-Pockets-Meetup - please join us if you would like to meet other Bigger Pockets members in person
I would be interested in a lunch time meet up, specifically something that is geared towards a more intermediate/seasoned investor. Let me know if I can be of any help.
Thank you Jason - that would be great. Perhaps we can work together to choose interesting topics.
I'd be interested in attending. I'm a teacher however, so a lunch meeting would only be possible for me if it were on the weekend. I live in visalia, but would be willing to drive to Fresno.
That is a great idea. Count me in. And also let me know how I can assist in putting it together.
YES! YES! YES! Triple Yes! I would love to help.
If a time and date is set up count me in.
Wow!! I can't believe all the great responses I am getting already. I am definitely going to start one up here in Fresno. I have always wanted to get a group like this together and it appears that I am not the only one. Thanks to everyone who is offering to assist with getting it kicked off - I will be calling on you to help me pick a good place and line up some discussions so we can hit the ground running.
Hello everyone, i'm new to all this and i would love to attend the meeting.
1. Add http://bitwiseindustries.com/ to the list of possible meeting places if you have not already. Very cool place to meet that gets people's networking and idea juices flowing.
2. Another option is maybe coordinating something with Fresno State's Gazarian Real Estate Center. I have a contact there that might be able to assist us in booking a room.
