    Meet nice people and exchanged emails. Afterwards could have been more engaging.

    The "other" Noah's gathering in Utah - Lindon (Utah County) gathering was standing-room only. The atmosphere was great, and we broke into districts afterwards for more discussion. It's a great thing happening.

    I was hoping it would be organized into discussion after the show. I felt I could have stayed home and watched it.

    It was great meeting like minded people and learning that we were truly not alone.
    The only problem I had was with the site. It was cumbersome to mfind the threads you were following, but it was not an insurmountable problem. Could be because of the size of the group.

    The Viewing Party setup was a bit confusing; I was initially set up for New York area and I am in Georgia. I went and changed that but the concept was a bit vauge. I was really looking for at least a minimal guideline on what we could do locally. We would like for Glenn to have this more than twice a year, though.

    I thought that I would be the only one to show up at the meet up, I just said the place, and 20 others showed up!

    We had great food and fellowship. Would've liked for Glenn's show to be a little more inspiring. I guess I had just seen lots of those guests on his show before. One of the people who came asked what the purpose of it all was, so I'm not sure we felt like we got anything accomplished (YET). But we're planning to work on reading the books and getting together to discuss them and coming together again on 9/12.

    Very good group cheering during the show. The Lee Brothers did a good job of inspiring the crowd. The muscians also added to the event.

    Was all that and more! We made friends, discussed the show and how we were going to proceed from here.Tea party in the works for two towns on two different dates so that we can we can attend both!

    We need to get a better meeting place! Marriott TV was hard to hear and we got some bystanders making noise (not that they even cared about us being there). But we had to start the ball rolling so I'm still gratified.

    Marilyn Allan organized our viewing party; we had a last minute location change to Hudson's Grill in the Brookhaven neighborhood of Atlanta.
    Hudson's was a good location; however the management could not get the audio turned on for our TV's so we missed what Glenn said for the 1st 5 mins of the broadcast. They had to move us to another room where we could get sound. This was the only issue; otherwise the location was great.
    We had a small, but friendly group together to watch the broadcast. Thank you Marilyn!

    If I had realized it was going to be in a smoking environment I would have chosen a diffferent meetup, but it was my fault it had been so long since I've been in a bar I thought everything was smoke free now.

    the group was a good mixture of all ages and about even in male/female. looked like we were of a wide range of economic backgrounds so I felt that was good. It was hard to carry on a conversation during the breaks due to other bar noise but they said they were going to vary future locations so maybe that won't be a problem in the future.

    glen's show was great and I think there were many that teared up along with him as we love our country just like him.

    I thought it was wonderful to see and be with so many like minded individuals. I just wish that there was a talk after the meet up so that we could coordinate further meetings.

    We had mostly people who were familiar with Glen Beck and what he stands for but a few who were suprised at all the information they received that night. We had some really good discussions on some projects we could do individually and as a group. One of the subjects that came up was the 'LYING' that has been going on in this country and around the world on "global warming" what a scam that has been. Here in San Diego, our top meteorologists shared on "KUSI NEWS" that it was not true and how the media and Al Gore refuse to be honest with the rest of us how he has taken advantage us. We as a group have decided to spread that message ASAP! We will be in touch to let you know some of the other things our group will be doing. We plan to meet at least 2 times each month. Good Luck and May God Bless our efforts! Jami Wood

    It wasn't as informative on WHAT we could be doing to make a change and a difference as I had hoped it would be. Plus, only about 6 of the 30 people that I invited showed up, so that was dissapointing.

    We were very pleased to see the turnout and left feeling very positive about being able to work together to make a difference. There were some differing points of view, but the end goal was the same, and knowing that this is taking hold all across the country is bolstering my hope that we will be able to make our collective voice heard in Washington.

    It was really fun and nice to meet other people with the same interests in politics.

    It was great seeing others come out to support our Constitution and the values of our fore fathers. I would have liked some more specific direction or tasks to work on from Glenn, because I think we will end up with a lot of spin off groups/actions where none can gain traction.

    It was just family. We all work so we recorded it and watched it later so we missed the on-line part. I don't get to watch the TV show very much. I think the radio has much more of an impact on me personally. I like seeing the people in person and I am glad I knew who they were (from listening to the radio). The other 2 viewers do not listen to the radio show, so there were questions about who the people were & why they were on. I am glad we recorded it so we could stop & explain. Keep it up I personally need this motivation.
    Thank you.

    Inspiring show, as expected. Fantastic turnout! It would be nice to follow up with some discussion. Provided a springboard for community and action.

    There were alot of passionate people at this meetup and we met some great people with the same thoughts and ideas as we have. I would love to do this on a monthly basis. The people who sponsored our party at Ed's Tavern in Charlotte NC were great hosts. There were many thunderous rounds of applause for Glen and his ideas as well as his ability to help us all come together.

    This was a great wonderful event. It made feel like there is still hope left for future generations! Some of the people at our group were saying "but what does Glenn want us to do"? Towards the end I finally said "don't you get it? He wants us to be citezens of this great country and get involved! He can't ell each and everyone of us what to do beacuse he is not in every neighborhood in america. Each of us needs to do something locally to make a difference and if everyone does that across our great country we will see real change!" Thanks Glenn for a great evening, looking forward to doing this agin in six months!

    I could never figure out where it was being held. The event organizer was asleep at the wheel for this one. It was not clear where it would be held or other details. Literally hours before the event there was still no indication of where the meeting place would be.

    This was a great evening, surrounded by people that feel the same as my wife and I. Joe Cope did a great job getting things organized. We look forward to more meetings and a chance to make a change.

    It was really refreshing to talk with other people that have the same views as I do. There was definitely a bond there and I hope the beginning of something really great. We are a great nation and we need to join together & be heard!

    I was surprised to see how many people came. We met in Manchester NH at Murphy's Tavern and State Rep. Daniel Itse showed up and spoke during a couple of breaks in the Glenn Beck show. He is the Rep. that sponsored the NH HCR6, a resolution confirming State's rights based on Jeffersonian principles. In other words, saying that if the federal government oversteps its bounds and tries to force unconstitutional laws or mandates on our state that we have the right to not comply. Unfortunately, the NH Democrat controlled legistlature voted to kill the bill before it could even come up for a vote.

    There are quite a few "constitutionally" minded people in the state of NH, and we have to utilize tools like Meetup and other mediums to bring us together into a cohesive group.

    I think Glenn did an excellent job. He had some very inspiring people speak. The topics were exactly what this country needs to return to what we were formed and stand for. I will be patiently waiting for the next meetup. I do believe that Glenn should have given us some additional to do list. But overall excellent.

    It was great to meet new people with the same values as mine, and exchange ideas.  Will be sharing emails and any pertinant information. Also, we will be meeting on the 13th of every month, except September, when we'll be meeting on the 12th.

    A moving moment for all of us who were mostly strangers but now friends. We made plans to be a support group and to start monethly get togethers. We plan to become active in our local political group to push for conservatism and values, to become more active in our community and our churches and to prepare for the worst and pray for the best for our country. We tried to stay focused in our thoughts without getting off on tangents. We did not want our efforts to die from too much bureaucracy by forming a group. We want to pattern our goals off the Jews who hid in the woods during WWII by the brothers.

    My husband and I were thrilled to attend and enjoyed meeting some very nice people who care about our country as much as we do. Everything was well organized and we felt welcome. I am always touched by Glenn Beck and thoroughly enjoy listening to him. I am a little disappointed, however, as I had hoped to leave the meeting with my "marching orders". I was hoping for more direction. I know this will come and look forward to getting involved with our local group. Many thanks.
