Are there any Mustachians in the greater Rochester, NY area?

My wife and I started our financial revolution a few years ago after reading "My Total Money Makeover" on our honeymoon. Since then, we've "graduated" to become budding mustachians, and I'm hoping we could hook up with like-minded people in our city.

It's summertime, so a low key get together in a local park could be fun.

I just created a Facebook group called "Rochester Mustachians". If you're in Rochester, jump in! I'll try to organize a get together at a park.

If I don't see many response, I suppose we better start getting the word out! :-)

I'm in buffalo but I'd drive to Rochester for a meet up!  Can families come?   And where is the Facebook group?

It will totally be family friendly - my wife and I have two little ones of our own.

I created a facebook group called "Rochester Mustachians" and tagged it with "Financial Freedom", "Money", and "Rochester, New York".

I don't know if facebook just hates me, but I have tried searching for this multiple times on multiple OSes and can't find the bloody thing.

I'm not sure why this doesn't work - I must be missing something. I'll try making it public and see if that makes a difference.

I also checked out Meetup, but it's more than $10 / month! No thanks.

Hi Ginklord,
  I'm in Rochester (technically Churchville).  Can't find the facebook group.  I've been reading MMM for the last 4-6 months, working (very) slowly on bringing the wife on board.

We're in Chili, just off of Marshall.

I can't seem to find a way to configure the group to appear publically without opening up all of it's posts to the public, so I'll have to invite via email.

PM your email address and I'll invite you. Welcome aboard!

Hi!

Yes, there's a group using Facebook to communicate right now. We've considered a meetup, but schedules haven't lined up well enough to kick one off yet.

You're welcome to join the group on Facebook though - just search for Rochester Mustachians.

I'm in Ithaca, but I'm doing the same.  I would be wiling to come see Rochester!

We're close and spend quite a bit of time in Rochester.  We would definitely like to be involved!  PM to send me a link to the FB or other group.

Did the Rochester area mustachians end up getting together?

I am in the area and would like to connect with others, interested to see who else is other there in the Rochester New York vicinity.

Thanks

We did a few meet-ups (I ended moving to Rochester).  The OP (and his wife) are awesome.  Nothing was done consistently though.
