Hi everyone, 

I think one solution to keep the group available on is to have all the members contribute towards the cost of the website maintenance, which is $72 for six months. Eric has been covering the costs in the past our of his own pocket but going forward, we could all split the cost if we, as a group, want to continue to keep this meetup and continue to welcome new members. It will be a shame to let this group go since Michael and I have learned so much from people we met in this group, as a matter of fact, this is where we met last December and we continued to explore and find interesting things to do through this great social network. 

Eric has sent me a complete list of the members we would like collect 5 dollars per member, this is how it works:

1) If you want to keep this group going, please send me a confirmation email at "[address removed]"as a commitment to contribute $5 dollars per account before October 31st, Friday. Please note it is "qiu" not "qui". 

2) I will publish the result on November 1st, and provide list of contributors and how much is committed. I will pay for the $72 dollars first then collect the money afterwards, probably through face-to-face meetups, or you can send me a check or pay through Google Checkout after November 1st. Whatever funds that's over $72 dollars will be paid towards future subscriptions to this Triangle Area Chinese Language and Culture Group at

If there's not enough contributions, then the group will expire on November 23rd, 2008.

Greetings everyone,
For the past two years, I have worked to maintain and expand this group and it has been a great journey. I have met and made many new friends and have watched our membership grow from 4 to 112 members. However, the time has come for someone else to step up and lead.
My own career and life changes and a desire not to let this groups direction grow stagnant are among the reasons I am stepping down. It is time for someone new to take over and lead the direction of the group.

I posted an earlier request to some members of the group asking if they desired to take over, however, no one has responded. No I put the offer to the entire group membership.

The group will remain active on the meetup site until November 23, 2008 after which, if no one steps up to lead, it will close.

Xie xie to everyone who has provided me with friendship and assistance these past two years. I wish the best to you all.
