Cycling Boston & Further Afield Message Board › Tuesday's BTB Meetup
|A former member||
Hi all. Just wanted to send this out in case anyone hasn't seen the updates on the meetup page. About 50 people have signed up for this event which is just at the threshold where our venue can give us a free room and some food without charging admission. As a business they're hoping to make some money and this comes from selling drinks during the event, so please plan on buying a drink or two (alcoholic or non) and change your RSVP to No if you can't make it so that if the headcount falls too low, they can make a decision about whether to provide food. Thanks! And here are the updates you may have missed:
We're one week away from the first event! The majority has err... NOT spoken and it seems like the preference is for this to be a fun, social get-together of like-minded cycle tourists. We can save having some structure for another time, but there will still be a few "topic tables" with themes such as credit-card touring, beginners, the Spain tour, etc.. (Interested in a topic? Post it below!) Experienced members are encouraged to pick a table where they'll be able to help out. That's all for now - see you all soon!
** ANOTHER UPDATE **
I was speaking with my contact at Wild Rover today and with around 50 people we're just at the border of where they can provide food and a private room and still make a profit. Please keep that in mind - they're expecting to make a profit from the drinks purchased at the bar, so whether your preference is something alcoholic or not, consider your purchase to be a payment for the food and location. Also, please update your RSVP if you won't be able to attend. Thanks!
