Welcome first of all, a lot to be learned here. For a meet-up just pick a good central place in your area, and announce a date, and time. Schedule about 2-3 weeks out for people to check their schedule, and make any arrangements. Obviously weekends are best for most people, so say coffee somewhere at 10 am. Don't ask when people want to meet, you will get a hundred different answers. No mater what day you pick it will not meet every bodies schedule. I've OC'd for four years, and yet to have a truly negative leo/civilian encounter. Carry on either way.
