It's come to my attention that the Shiba Inu Meetup group here in DC has lost its organizer, and the group will deleted in a couple weeks if another organizer doesn't step up. I have only ever been to one meetup, and that was back in the fall. But now I'm considering being the organizer.
The difficulty is that I haven't been much of a participant in the previous meetups. So, I don't even know anyone! It would be easier if I had at least one other person to possibly be a co-organizer with. It does cost a small amount of money to be the organizer and it requires lots of time.
The perks of being the organizer is having control over the events. I already have tons of ideas -- day hikes, doggie happy hour, dinner with dogs, dog parks, boat rides with dogs. For the more ambitious, I think it'd be fun to travel out to a winery here that allows dogs. It's called Barrel Oak Winery (BOW... as in Bow wow... get it? get it?). Clearly, I'm partial to Virginia, but we could expand some events out to DC and Maryland.
So are there any DC area pups out there reading this blog? If you are in the DC area, would you be interested in a revived Shiba Inu Meetup?
Or if you run a meetup in your area, please share your ideas.
