We took August off due to vacations. By September all the rooms that could handle our usual sized group in the convenient libraries were booked through the end of 2009. We are working on a list of restaurants and other ideas for a meeting room in the Bellevue area. Nothing has jelled so far. We need room size,parking,wi-fi and little or no meeting room charge.
Options for a October meeting include meeting at a library in a much smaller room with limits on the number of RSVP's, an additional meeting room charge of $5-15 depending on the facility, moving the meeting to someplace like Renton, Northshore, or Kenmore/Bothell or continuing inactive until I can locate something suitable in Bellevue.
We have a meeting tonight of the group that meets in Lynnwood if you can make it. At this juncture, I plan to schedule a smaller meeting for October and send you all a summary of my thoughts on the current market in the next few days.
Let me know if youu have suggestions. Just reply to this e-mail.
