I got see Dan, so I had a good rally.
For the guy who didn't talk to anyone. Been there done that my first rallies. No more. Volunteering getsyou involved, it moved you from being a guest to being a host. Big difference.
I spent 3 hours saying "hi" to people at the registration tent, it's my favorite job.
You are in CT and you can't find a local club? Let me introduce you to the Yankee Beemers. Next time stop and say hi, we'll give you free food, water and a chair.
I remember the feeling of being alone at a rally, I needed an ambassador to show me the ropes ( iRene). I hope you (and lurkers that feel as you did) will try another rally and find out what I'm talking about.
