World Blender MeetUp Day – Saturday August 23rd 2014
Congratulations to all Blenderheads around the globe for making our Blender MeetUp community something really special. The history of some Blender groups go back several years, but our Blender worldwide community on MeetUp.com celebrates a sort of two year anniversary from March 30th 2014. In honor of that achievement, we propose a World Blender MeetUp Day where local Blender groups coordinate on a common day to join together online, socialize and share information (MeetUp.com participation is not required).
The event will be similar to regular local city-based Blender meetings, but with as many groups as possible scheduling their events on the same day: Saturday August 23rd 2014. We are researching online webcasting services to enable local MeetUps to share presentation sessions.
If you run a local Blender meeting, please do this now: Create a “World Blender MeetUp Day: Saturday August 23rd 2014 - Save the Date” event post on your city Blender MeetUp page or on whatever site you use to manage your group.
In the meantime, some fun facts follow about our many local Blender events:

· Total number of Blenderheads registered on MeetUp.com: 1050 people
