Thanks and Gratitude
Ladies, Gentlemen, Friends,
Thank you so much for making the first 6mos of this group shine!
When Sharon Harwell and I decided to start this group, we had no idea what would become of it. We were just excited at the prospect of bringing a Scrabble group meetup to the East side. When we discovered that there was a $72/6mos fee to organize and maintain a meetup group, we chose to take on the fee 50/50 and just see what would happen. We got lucky with a 50% off the first payment.
Since then, the group has become kind of like a family for me -- Jenn. You've put up with my moods on my good days and my bad, and I appreciate that. Tuesday evenings have become something I very much look forward to, an escape, of sorts. Thank you for letting me be wierder than "my usual" during the holiday shopping season my retail job "forces me to endure" (melodramatic, yes).
But I digress... as usual, I suppose.
Moving forward, I will need help with this 6mos payments, so I am choosing to invoke a dues of $5 for all "the regulars" for the 2nd 6mos segment. A "regular" is someone who has come to at least 10 evenings and actually played a game... a "Hi-Bye" does not count -- and we have had some of those.... people coming in to check us out out or drop by just because (those are fun too). If the group of "regulars" gets way bigger this dues will go down. I just want to even the cost, that is all. Thank you for your understanding.
If your not sure if you're a "regular" just ask me, and I'll let you know. After 10 evenings of fun, it's like paying 50cents for the first 10 and then getting the rest for free.
Some people have already paid... this conversation / process got started about a month ago. Why it took me so long to verbalize it to the group: I have trouble asking for help. That, and I just want everyone to continue to have a good time. ;?
I will see everyone soon, this Tuesday, I hope. Jenn
