As of May 12th, it will be my 1 year anniversary hosting the Dance Craze-GR group. Whoooo Hoooo!!!!
It has been a fun, exciting year spending time with my fellow Dance Fanatics dancing our hearts out to some great bands at a variety of venues. I want to send out a warm hearted thank you to everyone in the group who has made it what it is today!!!! :)
This is the part of hosting a group that I don't necessary like. One aspect of hosting a meetup event is that you are required to pay a pretty pricey organizer fee ($72 every 6 months) just to maintain a meetup group.
I don't like the idea of requiring a mandatory Membership fee....rather, I prefer to keep it as a voluntary donation option for members.
So, I will be collecting during this event any donations that members are able to contribute toward the membership fee. I will have a collection container and will not be running around personally asking for a donation, so it will be only IF you can contribute. Any donations would be greatly appreciated to help maintain this group and keep us going and enjoy future fantastic dance events.
Also, I hate to change things up, but I am still a little hesitate to see the band, In the Red, after the last time we saw them (wasn't impressed with the head-banging type music they switched too during that event), so switching the Venue Location and Band to the following:
Location: The H.O.M.E. (formerly known as The Crush) in The B.O.B. on Monroe
Band: JEDI MIND TRIP (80's band)
Date: Saturday, May 17, 2014
Start Time: 8:30 pm.
Cover Charge: $5 per person after 9 pm (it is free if you get there BEFORE 9 pm)
I will be arriving there at about 8:20ish pm and I will be there till approximately 12:30 pm, but members are welcome to stay later till they close, if they prefer.
I will try to have tables reserved for our group and will have our "Dance Craze-GR" Meet-up signs placed on them so members can spot our group, but since this place doesn't reserve tables for us, it would help if everyone can get there as early as possible to help me hold enough table spaces.
Please RSVP so I can reserve enough seating for our group.
