I must say I am both astonished and gratified to see such swift growth in our new association, and would like to welcome all of you to this new community. I am myself fairly new to steampunk, but am not one to shirk from action when I see a need to be met, and so therefore began this group.
My initial thought in forming the community was to find other like-minded souls in the local area and perhaps begin some local gathering at which those interested might enjoy each other's company and share our notes, ideas, and creations. Would anyone be interested in attending such a meeting should it be organized, and what sort of function would we like to create should we do so?
I've seen some very interesting activities from other groups, from Sunday picnics with croquet to push-car derbies, and would be thrilled to hear ideas for possible events for our area.
Once again, welcome!
