We both played, talked alot and shared info and basically had a great time. Thats what this forum is all about in my opinion. K ( I am leaving him non public. K)
I don't, not here anyways. I met Danny Markovitch Slor, and Marbin because of this site, as well as several local players that I may not have known about otherwise, and will be meeting up with another forum member the next time I go to Ohio. Everyone here is just a sax nerd. Meeting up in a public place (usually a gig setting) is harmless as long as one uses a little discernment.I think it's kind of unusual for people in an Internet forum to meet up. I did meet up with some guys in a Nissan 370Z forum and and we went for a crazy fast ride in the country. They were too wild driving-wise for me. I wouldn't do it again.
I know some people on Ugly Hedgehog, the photography site, meet occasionally. But all in all I think it's rare. Just like the number of people who actually post versus those who don't is about 50:1 I think the number who actually meet-up is even fewer.
Good for you for doing it. It can be awkward meeting a stranger, even one you share an interest with. But this comes from a confirmed introvert.
