I understand that one of the barriers to having SC LoCo meetings is the inability of many of us to travel to another part of the state for a meet-up. I, personally, am tied to the Upstate.
Do we have four people who would be willing to get on a monthly Skype call or IRC chat, and hold a local meeting for your area?
I'm thinking the four areas that would be represented would be Greenville, Columbia, Florence/Myrtle Beach, and Charleston. I know this doesn't make a meeting close to everyone, but it will make the commute easier for most.
We could keep a unified approach towards the entire state, yet still show some regional flavoring.
I will volunteer for the Greenville area, but will have to hold all of my events on Saturdays, as that is the only day that I am not on call for my day job.
