    I agree with Tom R. Balloons at a table would let everyone know where to meet others in this meet up group. Don't know who would bring name tags but maybe people wouldn't want to wear them. I would be willing to bring a couple of balloons to put at a table at the next meet up.

    I have assisted to other salsa meetups and I enjoyed this last one qt Rice Park because I met new people and they were very open to talk to me. I have experienced the opposit ij the past meetups. People kept just with a certain group and did not open up to meet others. This one had a lot of mix age groups! Loved it.

    Good point Charlaine. Balloons taped to a table and floating up high could have been a beacon to guide everyone to a central location. Until I found people I already knew I was looking for a table with name tags. Never found any name tags nor anyone I didn't already know. Other meetups I've attended have at least had name tags which really helps when gathering in a community location which is open to the public. Who provides the tags? The organizer? Never thought about before. The tags have just been there for most of the meetups I've attended.

    As I said earlier, I couldn't find anyone either. Other Meet Up groups have a tent with the logo on it.

    I had a great time dancing last night and met up with others that I knew but I never found anyone from this meet up. There's got to be a better way to get everyone in one place so we can meet each other and dance. This has consistently happened at every one I've attended.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
