lol me and Gin were doing meetups when there were like 6 EC heads on this site, all it takes is a little passion and free time.
100% agree with what Rai said.
Us guys who have been around since way back when have gotten caught up in real life, but that's how it goes. We've invested a lot into glowsticking & the community, because we loved it & wanted to share that with others. But we've put in our time, it's time for others to step up. The meetups were intended to meet, share with and teach new people -- and those new people should eventually step up and take the torch. But seems like nobody is interested in doing that, leaving guys like Aden, Cleric and Rai to keep organizing stuff in order to do anything in the EC scene when they got their own shit going on.
Lotta people take, but not too many are willing to give back. That's how scenes stagnate, and eventually die.
And yeah, I'm always busy with work and other stuff, and never pick up the sticks these days, but I'm always down to come out for meetups.
