    Sorry I'm currently out of town until mid-July; hope to join you all when I'm back in town & if poss maybe similar meetup like this one at that time

    Get a star sticker @registration counter. When you see any other members with star sticker, you know that they are also newbies like you. Say "Hi" to them and start a conversation with them.

    To be frank, members with star stickers are eager to meet another newbie like you. So if members with star stickers approach you, greet them with a broad smile and the conversation starts automatically.

    But if you still feel shy to talk to them, please meet the organiser/staff at registration table and inform that you would like to be introduced. The organiser will gladly do so.
