At the October Meet Up (Oct. 13, 2012) Common Sense Mainer announced that he is stepping down from organizing Meet Ups. Sadly this meet up will be the last one he will have organized, but he will still attend them.
Common Sense Mainer then announced and introduced his replacement; GreenMountainBoy02
Common Sense Mainer, GreenMountainBoy02 and I will have a three way (phone call) later this week to discuss what we want to do, ideas of where to take this, etc.
There will probably be an "organizational diary" in New England Kossacks in the next 7-14 days telling you all about it. Please watch for it.
So as of now:
Upper New England (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont) = GreenMountainBoy02
Lower New England (Conneticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island) = Clytemnestra
Thank you Common Sense Mainer for all that you've done!
