The Bears Stomping Green Bay

 

Hey Football Fans,

   Let's do something a little different. I know we have Bears fans in the group and we may even have a couple misguided Packer fans. Let's meet at our regular place for dinner and conversation followed by watching the Bears and Packers.      

   For you non-football fans, it is still a great opportunity to get together with other members of the group to talk, offer support and make friends. Don't let the game keep you away. There will be a few times when the Bears aren't sacking Green Bay's quarterback and it will be quiet enough to hear one another.

  Seriously, the game doesn't start until 7:40, so there will be plenty of time to talk. We will not be following the usual protocol. Just come in, see old friends, meet new ones, and order dinner when you want. For our newer members, it is a nice opportunity to get to know some of the others in the group..

  Not sure how this is going to go, but because of the size of the room and being able to see the TV, I am putting a limit on RSVP's of 40 members. So please don't RSVP unless you intend to come. Hope to see you there!

                                                                              Steve

    Once again, someone joined our group and immediately posted another event as a comment. I deleted the post. This is something Organizers have to deal with. It is a classless way people use to go around organizers and use meetup groups to promote their own agendas and events.

    October 23, 2013

    • Jeff R

      I thought it was kind of strange she joined and immediately had an ad without even filling out the bio

      October 23, 2013

    • Stevie B

      Yeah Jeff! Turns out she is the Organizer of another group. Meetup is a Great thing and almost all of the Organizers that I met over the past five years are good people dedicated to doing a good job. Unfortunately there is the occasional organizer that lacks pride and lacks respect for others. The event that she posted is posted on her site. This was just a classless way for her to post it on ours. Wonder how many other successful groups she tried to leech off of...

    This is all new to me...seems like a nice group. I am divorced 3 years, after long marriage. New home, new community, new empty nester in last few months...yikes!...anyone relate??

    October 24, 2013

    • Stevie B

      Kelly, Welcome to the group. Just want to point out that this is something that really ought to be posted in the discussion pages. Comments are generally intended to relate to the specific Meetup, although I know it isn't always the case. Since you are inviting replies the discussion pages will allow for ongoing dialog and will not 'close up' when a specific Meetup is over.

      October 24, 2013

    • Kelly

      Thanks, Steve. I hope to attend the game...checking my schedule.

      October 24, 2013

  • Kelly

    Thanks, Steve. I'm a rookie. First Meetup. First Post. ...Go Bears!..and now to discussion page. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hope to meet some new friends!

    October 22, 2013

    • Jeff R

      You will Bryan. It takes time as we only meet once a month. Welcome. I've only been to one meet up myself and it's a pretty cool group

      October 23, 2013

  • Sheri

    I can't come on Mondays! :-( do you meet other days too? Can someone share with me what kind of schedule you have ?

    October 19, 2013

    • Jeff R

      From a quick scan of prior meetings it looks like this group meets either Tuesday or Monday every month (they bounced back and forth). The exact date doesn't look to be the same either - one month the 12th, another the 17th, next month is on the 4th so I guess you'll have to take a look at the website to get the date.

    • Stevie B

      What do you mean "LOW SCORES MEANS THE DEFENSE IS DOING THEIR JOB...??" Yeah! The other team's defense! Maybe you should be a Tampa Fan...
