As you can see with our site, I have set meetups that will be at regular intervals per month. This does not mean that you have to go to every meetup but coming to some would be appreciated especially if you live in Kitsap County. For those who live out of Kitsap County, coming to one of the meetings once a month or once every two months has been awesome, Thank you. Don't forget to look for a location that is cheap or free in your location talk to them if it would be okay for us to have the meetup there. You know your location better than I do and will have a better chance in finding one or we can have the meetup at your place. Once the location is found send me the information and I will contact them, set up a monthly meetup at your location, In which case I would lead the meetup until, you or one of the other Members feel comfortable to lead it every now and again to give me a break. :) This is the only way it should be done, it will show me that you are interested in the group and with the demand being shown through action, I will make it happen.
At this time Mark Green and I are the only ones that have managed the meetups, one way or another. It will be on our time frame, until there is more activity within the group by means of coming to the meetups more often. I understand the financial obligations that we have and the limits as well. But, you need to understand that I have them as well and I am doing my best to help you with your path of seeking knowledge and community.
I am in the process of developing lesson plans for the Co Organizers and Assistant Organizers to cover any of the meetups/classes with ease, hopefully. Also, there will be a minimum RSVP of 5, if there are less than 5 RSVPs then the meetup will be cancelled the day of. RSVPs are to allow me knowledge as to how many are going to show with each meetup. I love the fact that you come without RSVPing, when I thought it was going to be a small group and turns out to be bigger. But, we have to think of the location we are in, I have to call them with a number of RSVPers to determine if they need an extra person on staff for our group. So Please RSVP prior to the meetup, it will help greatly.
Members have asked me "Are you going to have a newsletter?" the answer is "Not at this time. Because I do not have the time to do it." Also, all the knowledge that we give each other through meetups and discussions are posted on site under the discussion board tab or emailed to you. So, don't forget to go through the discussion group tab, to see what we have covered or answers to asked questions. The more we talk on the discussion board or through the meetup replies the more chances we have to learn from each other.
Tomorrow we are in February, Which means we are getting close to the cut off date for the Turner Joy Investigation for overnight stay. We have to have a minimum of 10 RSVPs, we are at four. If we don't get the total by March 15th then I will have to cancel AGAIN. For those who have paid Thank You and don't forget to RSVP because I can not to do that for you. I have put your payment in record but that is all I can do.You can also pay on the site.
Member dues. Thank you for paying them in person during a meetup. We need to change this to the following: If you wish to pay your dues during the meet ups, PLEASE put your name on an envelope and what you are paying. When I am given the dues in the meetup I forget who gave what because everyone is asking me questions. So look at your account and see if I have recorded your payments and if I have not-- email me, PLEASE and I am sorry about the confusion but I am only human, LOL not Para Human.
Email me with subjects you would like for me to cover on the discussion board, meetups or classes.
I hope all of you are doing okay, sending me a quick note via email would be a great way of letting me know that you enjoy what I am offering to share, it gives me the confidence and strength to carry on. And of course it lets me know if I am wasting my time with this. So if you haven't responded to any of the emails, or have come to any of the meetings. Let me know if I am helping you at the least. Feedback is always accepted.
Love and Light
