In respect to those who don't want much email from the meetup group, I
propose moving discussion of the location to a thread on the web forum
I have set up. I will crosspost this message there, and then reply
there rather than to the meetup, reserving this meetup email as much
as I can for announcements.
- I am ill at ease in chain places like Denny's and IHOPs, far
prefering locally owned and operated establishments, even with all
- I am not trying to move the meetup "North". For goodness sake; I
live way the heck south. it was just to try a suggestion, but it
seems to be too contentious of a location; so, I will revert the
posted location to "TBD".
- I'd prefer a place, like a cafe, where the public is generally
welcomed to relax. I prefer such a site to an institutional setting
or meeting room for a more casual, sociable meetup, as this one is
supposed to be. This is in deliberate contrast to Joleen's writing
workshop, which is in a church meeting room, and now is timed on
staggered sundays to complement this one.
So, now that the location is back to TBD, I welcome you to register on
the web forum and continue this lively exploration of options there!
