That is, by far, the best way to get verified (going to an event).
For a while I was meeting people for verifications but it ended up being 10 people a week needing to get verified, at their place, on THEIR schedule. And that's just not doable.
So now I do events only and I know a lot of other verifiers (in the Montreal area anyway) are doing the same. There unfortunately aren't as many games during winter, I'm not a big fan of the indoor paintball place but I do drop by for a while every other game or so. We also had a pub night this past Monday which had a good turnout and will hopefully be happening fairly regularly: a couple of people got verified there (three verifiers were present).
