Great job, Jim.  It's come a long way from that first shoo[ in the West 
End where you had to go searching for a model.  I've enjoyed every one 
that I''ve attended.

Tonight Ignite tops 400 members.  In our 10th month of operating we 
have brought in close to 12,000 dollars of which 11 thousand+ dollars 
has gone back into the pockets of models, props, food, and studio 
rentals. The profit from our efforts is just over[masked] dollars and 
I'm sure that will eventually go to purchase additional lights and 
backdrops.  It hasn't been about the money - It's been about the people.
Just over 100 meetups, 50+ group reviews, and 1000s of images - Ignite 
has come a long way since our first meetup back in October 2010.  I'm 
proud of where we've been and where we're going.
Supply and demand - There has been an explosion of meetup groups - many 
with little to no content.  For those people that have stuck with 
Ignite, I say thanks.  Please feel free to use Ignite as your platform 
to create or develop your own meetups.  If planned well, I have no 
issue allowing Ignite to be your vehicle to create fun and exciting 
meetups for all to enjoy without dividing the all ready small pie.
500?  Sure, perhaps in the next year.  but I would be ok with 18 as it 
was the first week!  So here's to the next 400?  500?  :)
Thanks to Shelby, Monica, and Shawn for contributing ideas and meetups.
 
Night John Boy,
 
Jim
