North Texas Objectivist Society (NTOS) Message Board › NTOS: 100 Members and Counting!
I am pleased to announce a milestone in our growth: We have reached 100 members! Over the past year of our activity, we have been adding about 5 - 7 members every month! We are working to build a critical mass of core membership to help us define and build our local society centered on Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism and reason.
Think of all the good people we have met! Think of how much we are inspiring each other to do! Just for the highlights:
We have continued to add information to our group's "About" page at http://aynrand.meetup... In particular, we are working on clarifying our "Community Standards." Any comments or suggestions you may have would be sincerely appreciated. You can always contact me to make suggestions via meetup.com at http://aynrand.meetup...
We have hosted more than 20 social events, including a Thanksgiving Feast and a celebration of Ayn Rand?s birthday! You can always look for new events at http://aynrand.meetup... Remember, our next big social gathering is Saturday, April 1, 2006 at the Ranch!
Yours truly has learned to cook on the grill for our social events without burning everything. For those who miss the original ?charred flavor? of our cookouts, I am a slow learner! Greg Lucas has volunteered to cook for us again when he can be certain he will be in town. He and Paul put on quite a spread for us last summer. (I think Greg personally prefers medium-rare.)
We have a very active message board for our group. It seems we are enjoying posting with people that we may be able to meet in person. See our message board at http://aynrand.meetup...
Dean Cook has started the Plano ?OPAR? study group. It's probably not too late to join and catch up! For more information, you can contact Dean via meetup.com at http://aynrand.meetup...
Nikki Allen has started a group in Grapevine listening to Nathaniel Branden's original audio course on the philosophy of Objectivism. It's probably not too late to join this one, either! For more information, you can contact Nikki via meetup.com at http://aynrand.meetup...
Chad has started the Central Oklahoma Objectivist Group. We are honored that Chad and Ahmad Hassan have made the effort to drive several hours -- each way -- to visit with us. For more information about Chad?s group, see http://aynrand.meetup...
Dean Cook is also spearheading a group of us who are interested in recreational pistol shooting at a local gun range. See our message board at: http://aynrand.meetup... You can also contact Dean via meetup.com at http://aynrand.meetup...
Our next social event is April 1, 2006 at the Ranch! Please mark your calendar and take a moment to RSVP at http://aynrand.meetup... Let's warmly welcome our newest members and their friends & families!
