I think the problem was on April 15th when the meeting was canceled, (the day before?)
Perhaps everyone did not get the message.

Hi Tatyana!
My name is Truman.  Elizaveta (Liza) and I are the assistant organizers of the weekly Russian meetup group.
Ron is out of town.  I have been in school on Wednesdays for the past 4 weeks and have not been able to attend the meetings.  But school is out, and I plan to attend our meetings regularly from now on.
    This is a very nice group of people.  I hope that you come on Wednesday and become one of us.  Except for the past month (school and all) I have been a regular for over 6 months.
    I think that the problem is that we have become such a tight knit group of friends that we have forgotten to make ourselves available to newcomers.  We go to the back of Common Grounds, huddle into a corner, and forget about anybody that might like to join into our conversations.  For this, I sincerely apologize Tatyana.  I know that it takes a lot of time and effort to drive into downtown Denver and find a parking space.
    On a weekly average we may have between 4 and 10 people show up for our meetings.  We had close to 20 people at our Christmas party.  The intellectual caliber of this group is very impressive (my self excluded).
    I plan to come up with an idea in the next day or two to advertise our 'table' at Common Grounds.  Maybe a little standup Russian flag or something to signify our welcome mat.  I will inform you about this soon.  In the mean time, CALL ME if you have any questions. You can call me at home:[masked]-3508.  Just leave a message if I don't answer (I work a lot). Or you can call me on my cell phone, [masked]-4141. 
    In fact, the best thing to do may be to just go to the Common Grounds on Wednesday at 6:30 P.M. and call[masked]-4141.  When you hear a phone ringing, go to that table and say Privyet.
    Please don't be discouraged.  We really do meet up every Wednesday at the Common Grounds, we're just a little bit shy.  Tatyana, I really hope that you come and join us - Truman Seligman.

This is my third attemt to get the attention.  I was at last meetup and did not find any group dessignation at Common ground or anyone who would look like social group.  To avoid future confusion I would like to know how to recognise your it. 
Thank you,
Tatyana
