Everyone, I just wanted to provide a quick update on a couple items to all our awesome members.
Summer Meetup Schedule
We are going to meetup another two times this summer at Italian Centre North and South. After that, one of the largest sporting events in the world will be taking place, World Cup 2010. July and August are vacation months for people in general, with kids out of school, and I believe we will try to schedule an informal get together possibly. By September, our regular two week schedule will be in place.
We just crossed our 100 member mark. While some are not active, the milestone is significant, and I think we need to celebrate this summer. More to come.
World Cup 2010
The FIFA World Cup 2010 is nearly here, and if you cannot make it to a soccer city, I guarantee the European cafes will be packed. We may have an informal get together around the World Cup 2010. More to come.
Cooking, travel, and other ideas have been successfully completed these last several weeks. Luca came forward to suggest he host an Italian card meetup theme (Scopa, Briscola, etc). I will be trying to work with anyone who wants to plan a themed meetup, so come forward with your ideas and we'll see if they can be implemented in the next while or in future meetups.
Thank you to all the members, beginner, intermediate, and advanced, who make the practice of the Italian language so much fun, interesting, and engaging. As always, you are more than welcome to invite friends, associates, and others to join, and if you have feedback, nevere hesitate to share it.
