    I hope there's a way for future events to figure out how tp add people from the waiting list to join the event. it's my B D. looking forward to joining an event soon.

    • debbie M

      I have 20 from the meet up and invited 15 other friends of mine, so it is all ready a big group, and my home is small. If it were to rain we would not be able to fit everyone. Ok

      Thanks for your reply Debbie. I really sound likeI'm whining., I didn't mean it to sound that way.

      November 9, 2013

  • debbie M

    i'm sorry the event has been closed to those that are waiting.
    I didn't know how to do that and will ask how to do that for other events.

    November 8, 2013

  • Carole H.

    Deb, the amount of people attending is getting less and less, are we off the waiting list yet?

    I can't decide! It will either be a leafy green salad, an Italian salad (with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and olive oil) or buffalo chicken meatballs. I'll surprise y'all!

      OK, Matt informed me that everyone would prefer the Buffalo chicken meatballs (they are like chicken wings but not as messy). I'll just reheat them when I get there.

      oh ya

    Last time we didn't communicate what we were bring, we all brought mash potatoes.
    This is a meet up group
    we communicate and work together.
    That is why it WORKS.

    So IRRELEVANT is the wrong word.

    It was a simple request;
    If you knew what you were bring, please post it.
    If you don't know, just don't post.

    Anytime you would like to post a pot luck party at your home or place, I'm sure one of the organizers will post it for you,
    and you can do it your way.
    We are always looking for a new place to hang out together and have fun..

    I think if we all bring the proper liquid refreshment and positive view then what you cook is irrelevant.
