      Oh! Thanks Rich, that clears that up. I put the pics of the eagle here just to see if I could post, since we were on the wait list. I brought my camera to the meetup, but I had a new card in the camera, and hadn't realized it needed to be formatted before I could use it in that camera.

    Someone added 20 new photos. I see Rich's, but I don't see the other person's. I don't know how I was notified that 20 pics had been added, but I can't see them....

    The meetup was awesome!! The rating is lower than a 5 because the signup process was NOT awesome. Why the change? I certainly don't think it's an improvement!

    Well, Dorothy, I don't know if you saw me there, because I was on the "wait list." I'm going to try to post some pics anyway! I had a great time with you and all the others on the wait list. Why did it have to become so complicated and confusing to participate in these meetups? I am certain I didn't receive a confirmation I was participating in this event, so I was almost hesitant to show up. I'm glad I did!! As usual, great job from a great leader!

    Hi Dorothy,

    Unfortunately my plans have changed and I will be unable to attend this Saturday. I updated my attendance on the L.L. Bean site so as not to take up someone's potential spot.

    I hope you all have a great time and the weather is fabulous!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
