Re: [ruby-89] Ruby Group Meeting Place

Hello,

I'm new to the group and will be attending my first meeting in December.  Having the meeting downtown or in Broad Ripple would be ideal for me since I live in Beech Grove but if the decision is made to host it in Carmel, that will not keep me from attending.  I understand that we need to look for what is best for the group and not just me.  I've attended meetings at nFrame and their meeting rooms are nice.  If the meetings are held there, I will volunteer to supply good coffee (however, I do like good beer, too).  :) 

Regards,
Chad McCullough

Ladies and Gentlemen -
 
  According to meetup.com, we are focusing on finding a place that serves food and beer.  Well, I don't have a solution for that.  However, I may have a solution for a place that has a projection screen, a whiteboard immediately to its right, and food and drink could at least be consumed.  Unfortunately, there isn't a cook or wait staff.

  To be more specific, nFrame has a room on the 2nd floor of the 550 Congressional Boulevard building (in Carmel) that will comfortably seat 12-16 people with laptops (at tables, with office chairs).  We could probably squeeze 20, and maybe even a few more, but it would be less than comfortable.  There's a mini-fridge and a couple coffee makers, as well.  I haven't discussed this with the man who would make the ultimate decision, and there are a few details that need to be addressed, but I would expect to get it worked out before next month without too extreme an effort. 

  If that room is not suitable, there is also a conference room on the first floor that has a large table that would seat 12, but the room is larger and could probably fit more people overall.  It does have a projection screen, I believe.  I couldn't get in to get a good look at the room, as there was a meeting in there when I went to check it out.  It is near a room that has snack machines (although, those machines would be available to us regardless of which room we choose).

  The first question on my mind is:  how many of you would pass on a meeting in Carmel, versus downtown or Broad Ripple?  I wouldn't want us to leave anyone out. 

  The last couple meetings haven't been too large.  However, I've only been to the last two -- I have no sense of the history of the group.  Are either of these two rooms going to be too small?  At best I see them as a stop-gap until we can find a more permanent solution, in any case, but, again, I wouldn't want to immediately leave anyone out, or make the meetings so uncomfortable as to discourage future attendance. 

  What do you think?  Would it be better to search for a different solution all together?  Does one room sound more suitable than the other?
