I was just wondering....how many of you have actually met each other? I'm new here. What I mean is, are there regular reunions where one can go and meet other ex-JW's face to face?
Do any of you know each other?
Various ones on this board organise get-togethers occasionally. Just kept your eyes peeled for announcements for any "apostate parties" that are in your area.
any here know of the site for the get together around july 4 th in kelowna bc?
Where are you from? (I don't need the exact address, just the general area...) Once you tell, then you'll probably make a few more friends close by you.
We occasionally organize informal 'apostofests' where we can put faces and names together. It is a lot of fun.
Welcome to our board!

I have met several people who post on this and other boards including two very frequent posters here (look up!) and it is fun and good to be able to see the actual person. (They are even nicer in real life too!) What's more you find people who understand the path we have chosen and you have an immediate sense of "family".
Post where you are located, you are likely to find someone who would love to get together with you, even in Minnesota!
We've had the pleasure of meeting about 6 people on the forum and all have been very nice people. I'm looking forward to meeting some more.
We'd love to meet up with some in the US/Canada if we get the chance.
Well then come on over, Simon!
BTW, I have met two people from this board and am now friends with both.
Break the chains that bind you,
unless, of course, you're into that sort of thing.
as you will see here, we just had a shin-dig in Orlando:
These were the 1st people I've met here. I am not sure I would do it again, as they were all rather strange people...
...hahaha just kidding
It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend meeting some people in your area.

I'm guessing I have met 30 people at least from this board, and another couple of JW/xjw/non/jw boards.
It's fabulous. I highly recommend it. I'm hoping to meet another few bunches in May, June, July and hopefully August/September of this year; and some more in the spring of 2003.
I have met up with some and spoken with others on the phone.
It's quite nice to get an email from a poster asking if they may have your phone number, my biggest surprise was talking with Norm, he's a real Monty Python type.
