    How'd it go, everyone?

    I'm glad I could meet everyone at the meetup. It was very educational for me. I was asked about our food policy for the meeting rooms at WPPL: we allow food as long as the group cleans up when they leave. The coffee maker can be used but the group has to bring cups, coffee, etc.

    I'm looking forward to the next meetup wherever it may be.

    I'm sorry I cannot attend this meet up. I hope there will be others in the near future. Thanks.

    This meetup is tentatively scheduled for 8/27 at 6pm at the Westlake Library on Center Ridge just west of Dover Center.

    I'll post a message when it's finalized, most likely on Thursday.

      It is on the library's calendar.

      btw, since I'll be working, I won't be there for the whole time, will do what I can to help. Looks like there is a full agenda for the meeting. Any idea how many tables you will need? Also, I will be out of the office until 5pm that day.

    I think my first choice would be some Tuesday night in the next 3-4 weeks at Westlake Porter Library. In the next day or so I'll touch base with Matt and get back to the group.

    I work at Westlake Porter Public Library, where I am the web librarian. Just about all of my development is drupal. We have a PC lab (12 PCs and a Smart Board) or we have larger meeting rooms with overhead projectors. We can have tables set up in a bigger room if people are bringing their own laptops, too. I can help with an intro to views, too. If this could be on a Tuesday night and whatever room is deemed best might be free, that's my night. Otherwise I could facilitate and try to be there. We are open until 9pm M-Th.

      Sounds ideal! Thanks for posting this.

    An update and request for comment:

    Jeff has already suggested CPL Brooklyn. One drawback -- CPL branches close at 7pm during the week but meeting there on Saturday would be fine.

    The CCPL branches are open until 9pm, which means that we would have until 8:45 which is in line with what we've been doing at CSU. Two possibilities here are Fairview Park and Independence. I'm inclined to book Fairview Park for sometime in August. Comments / preferences?

    I see that we have 19 people who have sent RSVPs, so I think there is an expressed need for this format in CDUG.

    My inclination is to meet Mon or Tues evening or Sat morning.

    I'll follow up with CPL Brooklyn and report back to the group.

    Let's get this finalized. I for one would really benefit. I made an initial inquiry at the Fairview Park library. I'll follow up with some specifics later this week. Other ideas? (CPL Brooklyn is cool, too.)

      Thanks David! All this really needs is someone to take the reins; arrange a location, set up a time, and announce to the group. Very glad for you to be that person!

    Hey Doug, you still interested in facilitating this?

    I just got an offer from someone at CPL's Brooklyn Branch -- they have a new SMART Board and would love to host a meetup. Room fits 30 and apparently has great wifi.

    I'll put you in touch with them to get something set up if you're interested.

      Dennis: that'd be great, thanks! Adding you as an event host.
