Thank you Guillermo for arranging the wonderful 'soiree' at
Le Petit Chateau. The dinner was delicious! The ambiance was very pleasant and so were the friends who attended. Nice meeting you all and especially thank you to Gisele, Sarita, Richard and Guillermo, at whose table I sat, for your lively conversations!!

Well after reading all the comments I am a bit concerned. I thought it was great that Guillermo took charge of this event. I don't understand why some of you are giving him a hard time?
I allow members to suggest events and even organize them. This is the first time I've seen such complaints over someone doing what all the complainers have yet to do, take charge of an event.
Just to be clear, rsvps are either YES or NO. We don't have maybes, Meetup banned those a couple of years ago because they mean nothing. However if you rsvp YES, then (especially for an event like this) show up or change your rsvp status to NO.. Anyone who has problem with that, try that in France and see how far it goes.
If you look over Meetup you'll see that the Organizers often let members set events. I'm a bit dismayed reading your remarks. There's a reason this group has existed so long, but you'll have to attend to see why. This is an anomaly (or an amoeba as a child told me).

Hi I am so sorry that people get made around a dinner. When I have joint this group 3 or 4 weeks ago and I saw the Petit Chateau I was all exite because this is good restaurant and is only few miles from my house. I know the were no date, I had wait few days and voila I put a date. I know I took a decition when nobody was taken one. Again I am very sorry, but I think that we going to have fun even if I don't know nobody not matters I went all around the world and I had plenty situations like this.
In the face of rejection, you must learn to be courageous. It is important to believe in yourself. Be like the sun, which shines on serenely even though not all the heavenly bodies reflect back its light and even though some of its brilliance seems to radiate only into empty space. While those who reject your friendship may sometimes fade out of your life, the more you shine your light, the more brilliant your life will become. I tell to everyone that will come we going to have fun!!!

Arlene, Ce projet est tres bizarre et n'est pas comme on le fait d'habitude. Generalement, l'organisateur, Bret, fait des reservations et les annonces a Meetup d'apres la maniere: Voila ce qu'on fait, l'endroit, la date, etc., et on y repond en cochant oui ou non. Il n'y avait jamais une telle discussion comme delle pour cet evenement. Je fais partie de ce groupe depuis quelques ans et je n'ai jamais fait la connaissance de ce Guillermo. Ce n'est pas le vrai organisateur. Bret, ou es-tu?

7:00 or 8:00, I'll be there...drinks or whatever. Has anyone made a reservation? They may not be able to handle such a big group at a particular hour. I will be happy to make a reservation if someone will give me a definite time. And a request...if you post in francais, could you also give an English translation. Some of the posts sont un peu trop difficile pour moi and my bad French :)))

Vraiment vous avez beaucoup de patience, depuis 3 mois des messages a n'en pas finir avec tous ces membres du group pour
ce fameux dinner au petit chateau. Jusque a present j'ai observe
de loin tout ce qui ce passe. Maintenant je ne peux plus m'abstenir
de mettre mon opinion. A mon avis recommencer a zero. Poster
a nouveau enfin la date et l'heure finale a tous les membres avec
un message finale, cela chacun que la date lui convient, sans changer le plan confirmera, car malheureusement on ne pas faire
plaisir a tout le monde.
MA QUESTION OU EST BRET, NOTRE ORGANISATEUR DANS TOUT CELA.
EVERONE FORGIVE ME, I MEAN WELL. HAVE A GOOD TIME SI VOUS
N'AVEZ PAS PERDU LE GOUT POUR CETTE SOIREE
A BIENTOT MES CHERS AMIS. Gisele

Eh bien, il ya toujours une solution i, celui qui fera le bonheur de tous .... si le temps est trop tôt pour le dîner, nous sommes tous assis et boire joyeusement, grignotant des petites collations (à l'italienne) et après quelques heures de rire et à grignoter et boire, nous dînons! Si quelqu'un est en retard, qui s'en soucie? Si quelqu'un veut manger tôt, qui s'en soucie? Ils commandent le dîner et manger, salon avec le reste d'entre nous. La chose importante est que tout le monde est ensemble et parler français! :) A bientôt, j'espère!

My Dear Joanne, with all my respect why in LA people like to dinner so early? Even is summer when is 90 they still like dinner early. Sorry I can't agree less. I don't see the difference between 7 or 8, so if you don't mind I'm going to leave open to arrive between 7 and 8pm. And because I am gentleman I can meet you at 7 pm and have a drink, aperitif, with you during we waiting for the others -:))

A former member changed the date and time to Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 7:00 PM
Hi 4pm look to late for lunch and too early dinner. If you are a francophone group we have to eat like in Paris or Marseille even 6pm for me is too early but I ma open mind any date is good for me if we decide with a week notice. Merci Gui
