As some of you may know, Hairscapades was born out of my participation in the NaturallyCurly.com sponsored Curly Nikki Presents Kim Coles’ Grow Out Challenge. The challenge is over at the end of July and a few of us who interact quite often through our GOC blogs would like to put together a Meet Up!
That being said, we would like to get an idea of how many people might be interested in attending and determine a time and location so that we can start planning it. You don’t have to be part of the challenge to participate. This event is for all kinky, coily, curly, transitioning, contemplating transitioning, big chopping and/or natural hair lovers are welcome!! As we are all over the place, but those of us who interact the most often seem to be located on the East Coast, we were thinking of DC as the possible locale. Given that it is very hard to follow and locate comments on the GOC blogs, I am creating the information gathering forum here (for now;0).
If interested in attending, please answer the following questions in the comments section of this post:
- Can you/would you be willing to travel to Washington DC for a Meet Up? UPDATE: Looks like we will be meeting in DC.
- Which month would you prefer, August or September? Other? Please specify. UPDATE: Looks like we may be going with 8/27. Would that work for you?
- Would you be interested in participating in a Product Swap Meet at the Meet Up?
- Can/Would you like to assist in the planning and organization of the GOC Meet Up? (If so, please message me your contact information via the e-mail button below.)
(Note: My SO lived in DC for many years. So, if it looks like it’s a go, I’ll solicit him for locale suggestions depending on how many will attend. He’s a little connected in DC, so think he’d be able to help us secure a nice, trendy location if this thing doesn’t get too big.)
