Monterey/Santa Cruz area?

Is anyone around the Monterey Bay area and training for any of the exams? I'm prepping for my WSET Level 3 at the end of October and would love to join or start a tasting group. I would like to do the Certified Sommelier exam eventually too, so am interested in tastings beyond the WSET framework, although I follow that while studying. Also very interested in tasting with/learning with people who are further along than me. I keep a pretty tasty array of wines around and am glad to share. :)
