im in howard county. i tried to become an active member because everyone told me to come here, but this site isnt super active, its been about a year for me now, without consistent practice, but i still enjoy stringing. im moving into my own place next month, and no tv/xbox will mean 6-7 hour practice days for me. i read back a couple pages, and it seems the site still isnt too active except for the OGs still keeping hope alive. if anyone is willing to invest time in a meetup then id love to come out and learn some stuff besides flowers and mills. its funny though because the only thread for a md/dc/va meetup i saw had 3 responses, one of which was mine from my OLD account a year or more ago. nothing happened then either. oh well, i guess i'll just have to keep a lookout and hope something comes up.real life is kicking my butt too, hopefully everyone is doing well.
