I think it's tough getting things like this going in the summer; there's a lot going on and a lot of folks out of town. I know I was out of town 3 weekends last month, and am about to head out in a couple hours for the second weekend in a row! Things typically calm down in the fall a bit... I'm in a knitting/craft meetup as well and we always struggle to get attendance in the summer months.
That said, I'm sure a meeting would be helpful. And I did get your email, Gerry, and would be happy to organize a couple of "urban astronomy" things for people in the city (or those who don't mind coming in) - getting together for some of the Air & Space Museum planetarium shows, etc.

Gerry: I am sorry for not attending any meetings yet. Between getting ready for college and working, it has been hectic. I am planning to attend the next meeting.
