    I'm starting this thread in the hope that we can organize a meet before the new year some where in the upper east bay possibly on a Wednesday Thursday Or Friday. Near Concord, Pleasant Hill or even as far as Pleasanton for the guys traveling from the south bay so we have a half way point I'm Not very picky on the location or day just want to see whats good for everyone else.

    lets get a tally going who's in?

    Not that I'd be able to make it during the week, but post a specific day and time and location if you want to solidify a meetup. In the past people have started threads to hear ideas on where to meet and then had a poll for what days would work best.

    Right! Have a day and time set. Then make sure you pick a location where its suitable for OC. Also make sure your clear from any GFSZ.

    Once you got this figured out and posted, I might attend.

    I would be up for a meet in the Pleasanton / Dublin area. Seems like a good area (central to the North and South Bay, East Bay). :-)

    You planning on driving up to the san francisco bay area for this meet? I think you might be mistaken over the location of this event, either that or you are extremely dedicated.

    Ok so Wednesday the 9th and here is an address to a starbucks (7904 Dublin Boulevard, Dublin, the cross st is Regional St) i did some research thanks to google maps and cant find any college campus or school within 1000 feet. EXEPT SOME KIND OF ASIAN LEARNING CENTER AND A COURT REPORTING COLLEGE

    but then that brought to mind what constitutes as a school??

    what about a barbare college or beauty school also near by but does that still constitute as a school because i can say Oh well i teach people how to change there own oil in my front yard so its a place of learning A.K.A. a school?? can some one provide the PC on this just to verify so we all don't go to jail

    Read 626.9, subsection (e):

    Code:
    (1) "School zone" means an area in, or on the grounds of, a public
    or private school providing instruction in kindergarten or grades 1
    to 12, inclusive,  or within a distance of 1,000 feet from the
    grounds of the public or private school.

    I'm pretty sure that starbucks is within 1000' of Montessori Plus, which teaches kindergarten.

    The address is: 7238 San Ramon Road Dublin, CA 94568

    It's been said before, but I'll say it again. It is your own responsibility to verify that a meetup is not in a school zone. It isn't the planner's responsibility, it is yours!

    The law applies to direct lines from the edge of the school's property. Even if there is an impassable wall between the two points, 1000' is 1000'.

    Here's a link to all the starbuck coffee locations in the city of Dublin. Go through each one till you find one that's clear from schools.

    There is a Peet's Coffee (much better than Starbucks IMO) on Tassajara Road at the Waterford Shops. This is easy access from HWY-580 and just about2 miles down the road from the Dublin Blvd Starbucks previously discussed.The closest school property line looks to be in excess of 2500' away...

    Also - a Starbucks in San Ramon,at 9150Alcosta Blvd,looks ot beabout 2100' to the closest school...

    Well I guess I read this post about 14 hours too late......I definitely would have attended as I didn't work Wednesday and would love to get together with some other OCers in the area.
    Please post an update as I am curious how things went. I too am new to OCing, have only done it few times, but plan on making it a regular thing.
    Hopefully another one will be planned soon. All I need is at least a weeks notice. I make my own schedule, am off during the week, but usually take at least one week-end off per month. I'm good with any of the above mentioned Cities.
