Let's see...I've been to a number of get-togethers, hosted 2 at my house. Both times, a lurker who'd never posted on VF showed up; one was a local mom whose daughter went to the same school as my kids. I went on 2 Christi Taylor filming trips and it was so cool to see how her videos were made. Firmdancer and I went to a couple of CF workouts together and I went to a spinning class taught by Aline, who I don't think comes here anymore. Been to DCAC several times with Wendy and other VFers and met Cathe, Keli Roberts, Mindy Mylrea and others; they were all wonderful. I'm probably forgetting a lot of things but I'm made so many memories with VF over the years. Thank you Wendy for starting and keeping it going!

Sue - The get-togethers at your house were fun. You went to a lot of different places and met many VFers!

In 2014, six of us met up in Loveland, Colorado to spend the day doing yoga with Travis Eliot. It was so fun to meet VFers! I don't have the messages anymore, and I can't remember anyone's name, but it was a great day. I think it was the first time I had spent that much time away from my kids since my second baby was born, so it was extra wonderful!

I have met Pratima and her family and they are wonderful! We have been in a check-in together for ~11 years, so it felt like I already knew her.

As mentioned further up this thread, Iíve met Gale K, bzar & JackieB in person. Iíve also met Pat58, toaster, Cyana, Paine, & JustSandra virtually when we had a check in video chat last year. Itís been fun to connect with vfers, we come from all far and wide and from walks of life, but we ďgetĒ each otherís love of working out at home.

So, this is waaaay back in maybe 1997 or 1998 in Boston. We had a get-together at Jeanne Loo’s apartment in the Back Bay and I got to meet her, Katie F., Leela, Denise B., and Michelle Spina. Any other old timers remember those names? We had so much fun watching videos together. I remember Jeanne had a fabulous workout room in her apartment. I saw her and Katie F. a few more times after that. It was such a joy to talk unselfconsciously together about our shared passion.

Oh, it makes me so happy that you remember those names, especially Jeanne and Katie. They left VF so long ago but they were really special people. Also, they got me to try my first Firm when I was still afraid of working out with weights. ��

I have met many, many VF'ers over the years. From CIA conferences, Christi filming, Cathe road trips, Cape Cod conventions, FIRM get togethers, cycling events, to meeting up in Alaska during a cruise - when we landed in Fairbanks! I'm sure there's other gatherings too. FARRRRR too many people to mention.

Many of the people I have met have become my closest friends. I talk to them on a daily basis via chat or text or facebook.

As a matter-of-fact - I just met 2 VFers for dinner last week!
Yep - we're a great community!!!

Sue, I remember meeting you at lunch (I think we sat next to each other), at DCAC, nearly 20 years ago!

Terri, I hope we’ll meet again one day. It was great hanging out with you at all the NYC get-togethers, and having you attend my concert (I saved your kind review).
