A message from your organizer

Hi everyone,

We've passed 150 meetups for this group - hard to believe huh?  I want to take a minute to reiterate the purpose of this group.  I started it because there were (and still are, IMO) very few opportunities for beginners/casual players to get out and enjoy the game.  Of course, people of all skill levels are welcome - but it is important to keep that initial purpose in mind.

I would like for people to come out and have a good time.  We relax, have fun, and provide encouragement to other players.  We do not get uptight and overly competitive - there are many other opportunities for that, in Meetup and elsewhere.  If you can't have fun in a relaxed environment geared toward beginner and casual players, I hope you can find another group that suits your needs.

That's all.  Thanks to all of our "regulars" who have helped make the group such a success, and if you still haven't come out and given it a try - please do!  I'll do everything I can to make sure everyone has a good time.  As always, feel free to send me a message with any suggestions to improve the group.

Erik
