    I like the idea of writing letters to potential voters in the primaries. But I would have preferred writing my letters at home with at least a little time to think what I want to write. Instead I had 20 minutes in the meetup to write two letters. I could have done a better job with more time.

    Otherwise the meetup was excellent. Was interesting to see how many people showed up.

    I would repeat the Dean website address a lot..tell people what to click on, specifically, for the information that is being discussed.
    The letter writing was a Great idea, and it was fun!

    Really great to meet fellow Dean-supporters! We need to keep encouraging each other. Perhaps there could be some more specific information about what Dean is all about. I work long hours and would have preferred it started right at 7pm (it was about 7:15 when they started).

    Curtis, the leader of this group was fantastic. Very well spoken, great ideas and is very passionate about getting our wonderful Dr. Dean elected as our Democratic candidate for president.

    I look forward to working with my North Park neighbors to Elect Howard Dean. I liked the level of community involvement I saw at the MEETUP. I was impressed by the number of community activists /leaders I saw at this meeting. To name a few the NPCA president, the past chair of the Planning Committee, and the head of the Democratic Club of SD. Great showing.

    Other than the letter-writing, I did not feel it was worthwhile and am unlikely to attend future meetups.
    Primary issues were untimely start, too much noise (including conversations among the apparent organizers during speakers), and lack of focus.

    Claire de Lune may be too small for next meetup if more people come.

    Meet-up was very well organized, moved along efficiently yet with an opportunity for all to be heard. Curtis, the leader, was outstanding

    We left early. Next month we'll choose a quieter venue.

    Ira excellent at explaining issues. Ask Marie to confine remarks to 1-2 minutes. (I appreciate her passion but much said was repetition).

    Amazingly effective grass roots organizing at its finist. Only things that came to mind was to keep it under 45min by having someone time the speakers and not attempt to answer or side-step critical questions such as money issues, if you do not know the official answer. Get a sheet of paper where you can get the question and the person's email to answer later.

    The video of the comedian was a waste of time. Joe Trippi is smart, but should be more succinct. The video of the Dean's talk, which was inspiring, should have been played first instead of while we were writing letters.

    Writing letters to prospective Democratic voters in the key state of Iowas is a good use of our time and energy.

    The leader is good. He is fair to people who want to speak and yet he keeps the meeting going.
