    bring a beach towel. we'll start the meeting in the courtyard between Blu Sushi and Bar Louie.. and then decide as friends would where we should go from there. I want everyone to bring ONE idea of something that normally would want to go to that they wish they had someone to go with.. naples is not being left out. I planned one event in naples but no one RSVP so naples members be sure to be represented at this meeting.. its Up to you.. at this FIRST meeting i want to set up event organizers too.. so if you can 't make it call me and give me your input[masked]

    33 new members in one 24 hour period that sounds awesome.. and no one i knew from before. so it seems to be new blood not just recycled..

    2 · January 19, 2014

  • Jersey Joel K.

    wow great response in ONE night . 16 new members.. i guess i was correct there is a need for friends to do things with in SWFL.. a sat or friday or sunday is a always a good time to say "hey that sounds fun, who can go with me ?" even if your current friends are lame or always too tired to go out ..now you can come to our group and find someone or many to go to your great ideas .. most important is making new friendships that like to go stuff OUTSIDE the House Jersey Joel .. big day today for COLD weather and NFL playoffs to see which teams play in the super bowl

    thank you so far to all that have joined and i'm excited for our first meetup.. please rsvp. if that time does not work suggest a different time or day
