Bonjour à tous,

j'essaie de tenir compte de toutes vos requêtes et suggestions. Je pense qu'il pourrait y avoir une rencontre toutes les semaines et demie. Une sur deux en semaine (je pensais aux mercredis) et la suivante le dimanche. De cette façon, un plus grand nombre de personnes pourrait venir.

En ce qui concerne l'idée de Robert, je pense que cela serait pratique d'avoir un endroit pour se réunir, regarder des films, etc mais je ne suis pas certaine que cela soit facile à trouver à moins de privatiser un endroit, ce que l'on pourrait faire de temps à autre MAIS qui aurait un coût. Je vais cependant tenter de me renseigner pour trouver autre chose !

Entre-temps, je pense que l'on pourrait aller dans des endroits ou bars sympathiques tels que le Café66 suggéré par Barbara. Il me semble d'après leur site que le happy hour n'est valable qu'au bar, ce qui n'est pas très pratique pour un grand groupe. Je ne suis pas certaine, je n'ai pas encore réussi à les joindre alors je vous tiens au courant au plus vite. Pour pouvoir rassembler davantage de personnes, j'avais pensé qu'on pourrait éventuellement se diviser en plusieurs groupes ou réserver plusieurs petites tables. Ainsi chacun pourrait ensuite bouger un peu. En effet, j'aime cette idée Robert mais je ne pense pas pouvoir demander aux gens de changer toutes les 10 minutes en les surveillant... Je crois que chacun devrait choisir "qui, quand, où"...

Enfin, pour notre prochaine rencontre, je pensais au dimanche 2 octobre. Je n'ai pas encore défini d'endroit, peut-être donc le Café 66 (je ne sais pas comment c'est le dimanche ?) ou un autre café lounge. Si vous le souhaitez, on pourrait définir un thème (une destination US, une coutume britannique...).

Merci pour votre intérêt à ce groupe et pour vos idées,

A bientôt

Elodie

Dear all,
I'm trying to take into account all you requests and suggestions. I thought that there could be a meeting every week and a half. One out of two would take place on a week day (I was thinking of Wednesdays) and the secondr one on Sundays... That way, a larger number of persons would have the opportunity to come.

Regarding Robert's idea, I think it could be nice to have a place to gather, watch movies, etc but that's probably not easy to find except by privatizing a place... We could probably do that from time to time BUT that will have a cost obviously. I'm going to try to find out another solution.

Meanwhile, I think we could go to nice bars or places such as the one suggested by Barbara, the 66 Cafe. However, on the website, it seems that the happy hour is only at the bar and for a large number I think it won't be very convenient. I haven't managed to reach the cafe yet to be sure. I will let you know asap. To gather more people, we could go to a place divided in several groups or book several small tables... Then people would be able to go from a group to the other. Indeed, I like that idea Robert. However, I don't think I could ask people to change every 10 minutes and to control they "obey" the rule. It seems to me better to let people decide "who, where, when". But if you guys disagree, just let me know.

At last, for our next meeting, I was thinking of next Sunday (October 3rd) if it sounds good to you. I haven't defined the place yet (could be the 66 Cafe, I don't knowwhat it looks like on Sundays ?) or a quiet coffee-lounge. Would you like a specific topic for that meeting ? (Such as a US destination, a British habit... )

Thank you for your interest in this meetup group,

See you soon,
Hi Elodie,
I think there is a lot of good ideas (small groups, regular meeting, chattings about after a movie - why not  going to the same movie altogether or by our own  and chat afterward -). The first one was great. By the way, the 2nd of october is saturday: I'm afraid, as for the 2nd or the 3rd of october, I'm not free, but I will attend the next one.
See you,
Edna
