Hi James,
APUGers in the NYC area have had 3 events that I know of. Two print meets at David Goldfarb's apartment and a day long shoot in Asbury Park. I didn't count, but we had at least 12 people there. Do a search on Asbury Park and I'm sure you'll find the thread planning the trip.

I'm sure we would love to get together if you can arrange it.

Take care,
