You may want to get in touch with NUIpIsqo and Antimatter since they seem to be the ones who put together the Bay Area meets.
As far as location, I vote somewhere in San Fran (Golden Gate park maybe?) or North Bay would be nice.
i'm down to be there as well. I'd vote for south bay, san jose area specifically because there are a TON of people down here (especially technically inclined) and its not as crowded as San Fran so theres actually room to manuver in and stuff.
As for a place it really doesn't matter South or North Bay. I am a member of a Mustang club and go to shows all over the Bay area. There is room anywhere from Santa Rosa to Santa Cruz and SF is not crowed. For me San Jose is, it is just a point a view.
If it were going to be in S.F. it probably can be held in the Presedio Parade grounds. Lots and lots and lots of room. Right off of Lombard Street Hwy 101. Lots of hotels/motels also.
The is also the San Mateo area or even Milpitas @ The Great Mall.
In San Jose maybe a college.
In Santa Cruz maybe the main parking lot but I don't know who to talk to there.
