Pre-Meetup for July Kayak Trip to Pictured Rocks For South Group

It is only a few weeks till our Kayak trip to Pictured Rocks and we still didn’t have a pre-meetup yet.
I think it is a good idea if we meet at least once before the trip so everyone can get to know each other and decide how we can carpool up north.
However, there is a dilemma in that most people are either living very south or very north… no one in the middle. Here is what I mean…

<South>
Ann Arbor -> Jess Trip +1, Magda Munteanu, Rachel Naemi +2
Detroit -> Karana
Westland -> Jaesung Lee
Livonia -> Barbara Glover

< North>
Clarkson -> Taylor Kanas +1, Dustin Tierney/ Jessica Padget
Sterling Heights -> Sherry Tester/Michael Swita
Southfield -> Vicki Valan
Troy -> Eric Stimpson, Judy Ammar
Royal Oak -> Patrick Gannette
Waterford -> Jim Katterman

<Misc.>
Okemos -> Kristen Furseth
Windsor -> Maria Chiopa/ Janet Hart/ Sherah VanLaerhoven

Just to make things more convenient for the pre-meetup, I was thinking we have 2 pre-meet… one for the south people in Ann Arbor and the other for the north people in Pontiac/Troy.
The people from misc. locations can join in through skype to either of the meetings.
Since most people finish work at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, I was thinking of having the pre-meetup at 8p at a 24hour coffee/donut shop with wi-fi connection. The only 24 hours places I know so far are Starbucks and Tim Hortons, so that was my 1st pick so far. If you have any of better venues, I am all for it.
Let me know in the comments if you can make it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
