NaNoWriMo is a simple writing challenge: write 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. To register, you simply go to nanowrimo.org
What happens is that every Wrimo has the option to affiliate with a Home Region. Every region has its own piece of forum and most of them are under the care of a Municipal Liaison (ML). MLs will set up regular "write-ins", which are simply meetings in which you sit down and write with the other writers of your region.
I am a ML for my region, and I don't think I can repeat often enough how much fun there is to be had at a write-in, and how awesome NaNoWriMo participants are. This entire challenge is about forgetting quality and just writing. Word after word after word, until you finally go over the 50k line. I've found that most Wrimos are upbeat, creative and a bit crazy, which is how I like my friends. ;)
