    I was joking about the musical chairs, but your idea for smaller tables and switching seats actually is a good idea.

    It was a good meet. Next time we should spend a few minutes getting to know each other especially the newer members.

    Well, at the beginning I had my doubts, but it had a positive turn around after everyone arrived. The people I met seems to be fun and outgoing and don't mind traveling the distance to have fun. It was an interesting crowd. Looking forward for all the diverse activities planned for the coming months.

    I was late, true, so I didn't get a seat with "visibility"! People were nice, but they seemed like regulars, quite content to chat amongst themselves.

    • MARIA M

      Yes it was difficult to chat with people on the other side, maybe next time we should play musical chairs and switch seats, so that we all have a chance to meet each other. LOL

    This was definitely a learning experience for me. It's the first time we have had a lot of people at this location. Next time I think we should ditch the large table and use smaller ones. Once everyone is done eating we can start playing "musical chairs" so that everyone interacts with everyone else. To the people I didn't get a chance to talk to, I would be happy to meet again with you so that we can get better acquainted. I'm always open to suggestions and new ideas. I also appreciate the input. It will make for a better group. Thank you all again for coming out last night!

    I agree we all had a good time
    Nice to meet everyone I agree that all new members should be introduced to everyone and it's hard to have conversation if there's alot of people

    It was nice to see everyone. I wish I would had a chance to chat with the people at the other end of the table. Hopefully next time.

    I apologize Lisa for not being able to get into a conversation with your side of the table. Next time I will be a more concerted effort to do so. It was nice to meet all of you.

    I would only suggest that maybe when a new member attends that everyone introduce themselves so that we actually get to meet all.

    I have a friend Camille who is also going to stop by tonight, she hasn't joined yet but hopefully will, she is a lot of fun and will probably have some good ideas.

    Although Paner is not too big of a place, I will have a sign on the table so you will be able to find us.
