Hello Richard.  I hope that things are well.
I agree completely with your recommendation below.  This last Tuesday at Los Jarritos was the most noisy that I have ever experiences
-  large group - probably 20 people
-  everbody at one table, even moved tables so that everyone was together
-  4 or so very loud speakers, drowning out others
I very politely suggested twice that we implement your suggestion below but nobody was interested.  The problem is exacerbated with people like myself because I have a (slight) hearing loss.

Amigos- When there are a lot at people at a Meetup( Tuesdays), and you can't hear someone, talk often( too many people) or feel frustrated because of the levels of fluency aren't good for you, just change your situation. We have talked about this for years. Better in small groups of 3-4 people. You can hear better, have more chances to speak and there is more interaction. Simply, have one or two others, move over  to another table with you for 15 minutes, then move back, if you wish. I've heard this complaint for years, well, I also have said, smaller groups are better to hear and converse. The Tuesday Meetups have grown to have between 12-20 people on a regular basis. COOL! But, that being said, it's hard to hear each other. Well, again, break off or move to another table with 1 or 2 or three others. OK! bueno pues, cuidate, ricardo.
