I'm not sure where that is or what is involved in remote
participation but I should be able to make it.

Sarah has generously offered to try
to steer the group remotely. (See her message below.) I propose we
try one meeting that way and discuss how we want to manage things from that
I suggest we meet at Palmano's in Winter Park on
Thursday, Aug. 11, 7 p.m. Rich Palmano has a wi-fi set-up (The Hills Are
Alive). I have a short story I can contribute for critique but will
happily step aside if anyone else has an offering.
Can we please
have a show of hands on this suggestion?
Meanwhile, the questions Sarah
has raised in her message below are the important ones if we want to continue to
meet and critique.
I note also that Sarah has a regular
meeting at Celebration that is posted on our Meet-up site. This seems to
be for writing and socializing rather than critquing; but if it's convenient,
you may want to give it a try.

Let's remember that finding a place to
meet has never been a problem for the group. Let's get this back to the topic
at hand: who is going to organize the meetings?
It looks like we have
plenty of people willing to chip in the $$, but no one willing to take over
the group. If you are all agreeable, I could continue as organizer, working
with individuals to organize specific meetings. If the location is quiet and
has wireless and someone brings a laptop, I could easily participate in the
meeting via skype.
But that, of course, is all dependent on people
being willing to go to the meetings. Over the past year or so, we've had a
core group of 5 that comes, but no one else does - no matter the location. And
we supposedly have 128 members. If more don't come to the meetings, I don't
see why we wouldn't do as a member suggested privately and move the group off
Let me know what y'all think.
