Awww come on...but why is it a necessity? (Again, I know why but I want to hear what other people think). As for the WA Meet, I think that is just going to be some sort of small informal regional thing for people to do. I know I wouldn't consider a meeting anywhere west of Chicago, south of Nashville, north of Detroit, or east of Philly. I probably wouldn't even attend one unless it was within 2-3 hours and attendance was guaranteed to be somewhat respectable.
