warmshowers meet-up for hosts

I live in a city (Istanbul) with about 60 warmshowers hosts, and thought it would be fun to do a meet-up for all the hosts. I organised one about 5 years ago but there were only about 10 hosts then, and so it was much easier.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do it?

Thanks!

meet up for hosts..

Good idea Kathy, I posted recently just the same question ( somewhere else in these forums, I can't find it again easily ....

There has been one reply to say the hosts in Hobart (Tasmania) have had at least one such meet up, which was a lot of fun ... but no other cases mentioned so far.

I think it probably does happen at a very informal level sometimes, somewhere.....

but no-one has ever contacted me, IIRC. I have tried to contact hosts nearby sometimes - trying to find place for visitors etc - but I have never had an enthusiastic response.

In the Old Days of WS, it was possible to "group email" a number of hosts ( eg to arrange such meet ups, as well as to request accommodation as a Guest) but that possibility no longer exists, I suppose due to possibility of s@amming.

It is just an intuition on my part, but sometimes I think some hosts may even be "competitive" and therefore see other local hosts as ...well..."competitors" . I hope I am wrong about that, and there is some other explanation why we don't hear about such meet ups.

Best wishes for your meet up ! I look forward to reading about it ...

I really *wish* I had a " MY Posts" tab attached to my Profile - so I could find my own Posts easily, and so other WS members could read my Posts to this website. My Posts are - IMO - an important part of my real "profile".
