    HI , this is the second time I went to the meeting at Starbucks and didn't find anyone at the appointed time. The first time I did come late, about half an hour, but there was no one I recognized at all.

    Today was the second time. I arrived on time and waited for twenty minutes, and even asked a few people who were sitting alone. Then I left, and returned about fifteen minutes later. I still so no one I recognized or who approached me except for one woman who saw me looking around. It turned out I had met her several years ago, and I sat down and we had a very good conversation. I think we need another method to identify people who are actually there for this meeting.

    I didn't see Lara, or Steve, or Tonya, all of whom I would have recognized. Maybe we can wear a fake flower, or carry a hat, or pin a ribbon on or have a sign.
    Maybe we also need a contact phone number so that we can phone someone and see what is going on.

      Lisa,I am so sorry that I was not able to be there for the last 2 Meetups. I have decided to cancel this Meetup, until I am able to be there.

      Hope you can make it on Sunday. My husband will drive us there.

      Again, I apologize for standing you up.

      That is okay , Lara, hope you get to feeling better. If you do cancel the Meetup, then I guess there won't be any problems in the future.It is difficult for you to have to commit yourself for every Friday in the month, month after month, particularly with a small showing.

    I think it is important for people, even if at the last minute, to post that they are not coming. That way people who do come won't expect them. Also I think that it is good to have a small sign,I guess for whoever does go, to put on the table so people can identify each other. So many folks were there at so many different spots that it was impossible to tell who was who. And it would be good to have Lara's phone number in case no one showed up except for just one person.
    As it turned out, overall I did have a good time, but that was just accidental!

    The meetup wasn't much of a meetup because it seemed that noone showed up for it, including the organizer? But I did find one person and we wound up having a nice long conversation. Hope everyone is ok?

      Lara was ill and Tonya had a conflict, and I was too tired. Don't give up!

    I'm actually a MAYBE...have folks been showing up for this? I enjoyed the first one I went to. Not sure if I can come this week, but I'd like to if I can.
