I do hope so... I know I cannot be in my location more than about 10-15 min as I need to get my ass to work but I hope to run into other baltimore people.

But more importantly, get those donut photos and videos posted!!!

jakerome is a group administrator jakerome says:

The meet-ups don't have to be very formal. Of course, everyone needs to visit their local donut shop. And post the photos and videos. What makes it even better is when you enjoy your donut with other Flickr members.

OK, I'm up for Vancouver, but I have no idea where the closest Donut shop to my work is, so I'll heretofore propose meeting at 7:30am at the Tim Horton's at Burrard and Georgia St. in Vancouver.

Well, I think the free donuts are SF only. Everyone else will be free to post their photos. The world-wide meet-ups are more of a community project, not officially sanctioned by Flickr.

tentative and subject to change: milwaukee's meet will be at cranky al's in wauwatosa at 6:30 p.m.

because no way would i ever be able to do something like this in the morning. i cut my mornings close enough as it is, and i'd never be able to properly enjoy my donut, without fear that i could be late for work.

Awesome guys! Glad to see these things coming together. I suggest that you also post an announcement in your city groups so that as many Flickrites as possible will know about the event and attend. I'll post the links at the top of this thread & on the main group page.
