I'm guessing CG needs volunteers to setup a Bay Area sub-forum. Or not enough interest from Bay Area natives to have one... just spitballin'!

Bay Area sub-forum would be nice. Would make filtering local events much easier.

I wouldn't mind having all of the above. I can help out with the East Bay if needed.

i'd say having a westbay, southbay, and east bay as separate subforums would be a good idea if the numbers of users support the need.

I'm available to help out if it's needed.

Start with a general "Bay Area" sub-forum, and then plan get-togethers/events within the different sub-regions based on who is coordinating them, where they are taking place, etc. No reason to split it into micro-regions right away.

Eventually, if all the cool stuff is happening on the Peninsula while you are in the East Bay...then simply start arranging some cool stuff yourself in your area.

It's also easy enough to do quarterly dinners that rotate through the Bay Area.

I would definitely support a Bay Area sub-forum, and would be happy to help put things together (I plan corporate conferences/events for a living).

I'd say "Bay Area" sub-forum would be the safe path for right now. Then, once, we got more of the community involved.. then start branching off to our perspective areas.

Agreed. Even though I live in San Jose, I would be willing to go to other parts of the bay for events

Do we need a 2/3 rd vote to pass BA-SUB01

Tumbleweed.13
03-06-2013, 7:15 PM
Agreed 1 is easier to follow and I don't mind a little travel around the bay.

I'd love to help Bay Area Calgunners get organized. Maybe reload events so I don't look like a madman calling and visiting every local store asking... "You guys got <choose caliber> in stock?... Ok, thanx anyways."

That aside, Bay Area need our own sub-forum!!!! :43:

I think it's a great idea. I'd particularly like to know more about happenings in the South Bay.

Hi, guys,

I'm one of the C3's in Sacramento and I know that PennysDad and other C3 leaders are aware that you're jelling into a solid group.

In order to get a sub-forum and be an organized chapter, you need to get a couple of people to volunteer to be C3's by PMing PennysDad. Then they need to schedule some meets, shoots, etc., and advertise them in the Norcal and Sacramento Forums, until you get your own. But the key is to have actual C3's and actual events.

You might want to do a monthly shoot that rotates around the area to different ranges, to accommodate the different areas. Or a set of meet ups for pizza, beer and gun stories, or whatever.

Here's a link, telling folks how to get started as a chapter, it's worth reading
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=642655

If I can help you or answer questions, please PM me.

im a noob to the whole gun and shooting community but definitely willing and excited to help organize bay area events. only thing is my schedule is spontaneous so actually showing at events maybe an issue but following up and organizing events shouldn't be a problem.

Your thought is right on.
What I wont do is start a chapter without a local leader and an outing forming.
But we will support the creation of a local Chapter when we have people ready to lead them. The sub-forum is a product of the chapter being created which means there are interested chapter members ready.
I do have a meeting with someone today for San Jose and it looks like this group +a PM have interest in a local chapter in the SF area.
Please send me an email is you have interest in a chapter.

We had a subforum before. I was away for seven months + for work and when I came back it was gone. It would be nice to have booths again at the shows. I miss those days.

If you want to be a C3 (Calguns Community Coordinator) you MUST PM PennysDad. Posting here will not do the job.
