Hello, Glendale, Peoria, Northwest Phoenix, Sun City, Surprise and all other points in the NorthWest Valley. The Phoenix Meetup comes to your part of town once a month on the 1st Sunday. THE LOCATION IS NOW SET. We will be meeting at the IHOP Restaurant on Bell Road just immediately East of the West 101 Loop. As you get off the 101 and go East on Bell, it is the very first business that you come to, on the right hand side. Easy in and easy out!
We have reserved an private room that can handle our expected growth, out here in the NW Valley (at least for a while). The room is ours from 6:00 until closing, so those that wish to linger and chat and show & tell, after the meeting, can do so to their hearts content, or the Cows come home.
With 4 Meetups a month, thoughout the Valley, everyone will have a chance to attend the same basic presentation at a location close to home. Come at 6:00 for dinner, if you like, and to mix and mingle with your fellow FarmVille Fans and Fanatics. Meet and make new Friends.
We'll try to get most of the food out of the way to START OUR MEETING PROMPTLY AT 7:00 PM (but not to worry about coming later, as food service will be available throughout the evening).
The Monthly Agenda (always subject to modifications based on your ideas and suggestions) will be the same at each Meetup, so you only HAVE TO attend one (yes, we know, some of us will try to attend them all):
Current Known Issues
Feature Presentation(s) (always wanting your suggestions)
Open Questions and Answers Session
Break-out Sessions (varying by Level or Subject)
Mix, Mingle, and Open Sharing
The more formal part of the Meetup will end with the Raffle/Give-Aways, by 8:30 PM, so that those with early morning obligations can get home. The rest of us can stay and chat or play until they're ready to close the doors on us.
We are very open to your ideas and suggestions about how we can build these Meetups and make them most valuable and important for you. We are also still seeking Moderators and Presenters for this Meetup, as well as help in a number of other organizational functions. So, write to GrampaJohn@kval.org with any questions or offers to help.
We hope that you find these Meetups so worth your while, that you choose to attend often. Regardless of where you live in the Metro Area, you are always welcome at any (or every) Meetup. SEE YOU THERE!
