A Bond event...

Hello fellow AJB'ers I wanted to reach out just to get some insight. I really would like to bring out the best of Bond and find more fans in my neck of the woods. I live in Sacramento, California USA and being on the west coast I feel like there are a lot of fans, but I have yet to meet them. Therefore, I would love to put on a small local Bond event to weed them out. My question is: what would be something that I could do that would make you want to come to said event? Trivia, prizes, movie? Just something simple to try and meet more Bond fans locally. Just curious to see what the over all consensus would find attractive. Thanks all!

    Hi Chris,

    Sitff arsed Brit here, so can't really offer much advice for you Stateside, but great that you're looking to get something organised. For what it's worth, I would suggest a local meet up at a relaxed bar - a mini, low key Gatherall, like our friends David Zaritsky and Joe Darlington are organising over on the east coast, perhaps. Or some other Bondian location.

    I don't know if you need to add too much of an incentive, I'm sure there are loads of fans that would be happy to meet up to chew the Bond fat and have an opportunity and outlet to meet like minded fans.

    All the best with it. Keep us updated!🍸️

    Chris,

    Start small and do not be discouraged!

    Our initial Bond Community Cigar Lounge gatherings were about 6 to 8 people. Our last event totaled over 20.

    Varying the location also helped us find a "hot spot" area.

    We should do like a West Coast 007 gathering, perhaps in Las Vegas.

    I'm always interested in an East Coast do (Florida, or meeting you in DC/NY etc.).

    Unfortunately, the entire ship is sold out for our Bond Locations Cruise in October, so there's no space aboard for more Bond fans.
