Social and Workshop Meetups
Friday, January 29, 2010 1:51 AM
The Short-Notice January Social Meetup was a great success. If you have not attended one of these, try to put one on your schedule. Our next social meetup will be on Friday, February 5 at Pisco's. I would like to hold one Friday night social meetup per month on the first Friday unless it conflicts with a major holiday. Pisco's has proven to be a very good venue.
We are scheduling two workshops per month where some aspect of the Spanish and English languages will be discussed. Our leader for these meetups is Jorge. The workshops are scheduled for the second and fourth Saturdays of the month from 10:15 a.m. until around noon at the Southeast Regional Library off of Gate Parkway. We may not get the same meeting room for every workshop so look on the bulletin board in the foyer to find out which meeting room has been assigned to us. Participation in these workshops is limited to the capacity of the room. Usually 12-15 chairs are provided with table space for desks. Wi-fi is available if you have a laptop or smart phone.
We invite members to enjoy a social lunch after the workshop. We have been going to Bono's which is nearby but that can be changed to accomodate different tastes.
Finally, we have instituted a cost-sharing measure of collecting $1 per person at the meetups to cover the fees that Meetup.com charges us for our website and any incidentals like copying handouts.
Our workshop schedule through June:
Feb: 13, 27
March: 13, 27
April: 10, 24
May: 8, 22
June: 12, 26
Best wishes to all.
