Update: I've set this one for Saturday afternoon, but I'm also setting up another Meeting about Meetings for Monday evening.
For this meetup on Saturday, after we are done talking about meetings, you are all welcome to stay and socialize. My wife loves playing card and board games, and I like socializing.
So... we need to talk about meetings. I am on Meetup every day. Many of you have not been back to the Olympia Atheists meetup in a very long time, so I'm contacting you this way.
Hi, I'm Steve Greenfield aka Polymorph, a new Organizer here. Thank you, Eric, for making me an Organizer. Prior to this, I've been inviting all of you to the potluck game days that my wife and I hold every month.
But we need some actual Olympia Atheists meetups! I know there are some possible issues with public meeting spacings. So let's put our brains together and compare notes. I'm willing to host a meeting to talk about meetings at my house. I have no idea how many people will show, but I have parking for about 8 cars and 3 more across the street, and should be able to fit a max of about 20 people in the back room.
I'm in Lacey, about a mile-and-a-half south of Huntamer Park. I must point out that we are not wheelchair accessible. No ramp, and the design of the bathroom is terrible for that. I wish we were, but can't afford it at this time.
Or there may be a park we can meet at. It is staying light until about 9pm or so. Several people at last Sunday's meetup brought up having a meetup at a bowling alley, not to bowl, but because many of them have lots of tables and seating, and a restaurant or bowling alley will be wheelchair accessible.
I think we should do this soon, but with at a minimum of 1 weeks notice. A weeknight from 7 to 9pm? A weekend during the day? We can't expect every meeting to be available for every person, because we can have more meetings and different days, times, and places.
So the earliest practical date would be Wednesday June 11, or Saturday June 14 as I have prior commitments on the 12th and 13th. For future meetups, they don't all have to be on days handy for me, but for the purpose of this meetup, I need to be there.
Please respond with your ideas and preferences.
