Indeed - definitely be socialable and you will likely meet someone, who maybe will know someone else, etc. I met Brian, our Crew leader, and his wife at the weigh-in of my 1st meet. His wife just happened to be Italian, as is mine and my family, so we all hit it off right off the bat. My family are such big social butterflies haha. I actually couldn't believe I accomplished my #1 goal of meeting a crew even before the weigh in! I still don't believe it!
Training with stronger and more knowledgeable lifters has certainly been a huge factor in my progression.
