I hope you can make it. It is always nice to see you.


Hi! I live in Virginia Beach and this would be my first meetup. Is this open to everyone?

HI Celia, This is open to all who would like to attend. There will be meetup postcards for you to autograph and send to yourself and others on your list. If you have a rubber stamp with your name or screen name on it, be sure to bring it.

I look forward to meeting you,

I’ll see every one there. Looking forward to it.

Hi, I live in Chesterfield Co. I am not sure if I can make it, but I will try. Thanks for organizing! I am new to this!

I plan to be there, along with a friend who introduced me to postcrossing. Thanks for organizing!

I hope to make it! I’ve never been to a meet up before but I hear great things :blush:

Demaris- It looks like I will be home for the Chester Meetup! Yeah!

I would like to get 100-150 cards. Will you have that many? I will gladly pay you for them. I can also print some of my own if necessary. Thanks-

More background- Currently I am ranked at 104 in the US for sent postcards. I am trying to get in the top 100. Meetup cards are quicker to send then other cards, so I plan to send a lot from the meetup. I went to a meetup on World postcard day, and I sent many cards from there.

Hi! I just moved to Virginia Beach and am looking for other Postcrossers! Could you let me know when you’ll be having another meetup? Or does anyone know of groups in Virginia Beach? I attended meetups in San Diego whereI lived and I’m missing my people! Sue :blush:


I will be having another meetup in November, 2023. Not sure of the day yet.

Please send your email to I will be happy to let you know of that meetup. However check the forum there may be others planning one before then.

Enjoy the day!

Hi! I will be there. Thank you for organizing. Do you need any help? This is my first meet up but I’m happy to help :slight_smile:
