Aoirthoir,
 
I understand all the issues mentioned.
Accessibility has it's own issues and will work out somehow.
Saturday is fine but as Stuart has said the morning thru early afternoon are other meetings.
If this would follow those that would be great. such as 1:30 or 2pm or later. many other days.
I will make arrangements to be there when ever you say.
If i can be of any assistance please let me know how.
Thanks for doing this.
Ron Finnerty

Ron,

For this meetup I try to be as inclusive as I can. I understand that circumstances (my income) might impair that desire to some degree. Still, if it is within my reach, even if it takes a bit of work, I want to meet the needs of others. So along those lines I consider the following:

1. Not all folks could afford a monthly fee for the meetup. So their needs are met by me keeping it free. This doesn't preclude posting events that require a charge, and those that cannot afford such events would be excluded. I hope this is balanced by my offering the meetup and some (or all) of my own events in the meetup for free. 

2. Some folks have access needs. Folks that require wheelchairs, scooters, canes or other ambulatory tools will find it difficult climbing the long flight of stairs to the new location. Heck I find it difficult. Since I have no easy solution to this, I hope I can balance it by offering an extra class elsewhere. I realize this creates a segregation, which I greatly regret. But I will be working over the next few months to find a more apropos place. But that will entail funds, which right now I've not got. 

3. Some folks need visual tools. Perhaps larger monitors, or speaking software. If I have the means to accommodate, I will. Right now we've not run into this, but I expect some time I will.

These are just some examples of needs that many of us don't think about because we take our ease of access for granted. Myself, so much so that it didn't dawn on me about the steps until a short time ago. 

Of course each of us has other needs besides these. Since I like to help, if I can, I will. 

Speaking of which is Saturday acceptable for people for now?

Kind Regards,
Aoirthoir

Aoirthoir,
 
not really trying to be funny but what do you mean by "needs".
Sometimes i am quite daft...does that qualify as a "need".
I think your offer if great, as it is a much more intense time constraint on you.
I will adapt to wherever and when ever you decide just let me know the details.
I will adjust to what others prefer first.
thanks again for doing this.

Kevin,

There is no elevator but I think I have a solution for those that arent. If I am teaching say about 4 people or fewer, then I can do that easily enough at Beyond PC. Teaching the large group that we had here is really difficult though, and other locations were as well. So I am thinking that I could set up two classes. One during the week for a handful of people and another at the new location for larger numbers. I kow that means that those with needs would not be in person as a part of the large groups, but it would also give them the advantage of more focused attention, so I hope the trade off would be worth it.

What do you think?

Kind Regards,
Aoirthoir
