First Meeting!

Ciao Gumba's!


This will be our first meeting, we now have 11 members and welcome anyone who may be interested in socializing and the Italian heritage and speaking Italian, beginners are welcome.  I believe there is a great deal of interest in the area and I'm very excited to start this group and look forward to meeting y'all!

    Hi Joseph,
    You mentioned that you live in Cary and I understand this is not specifically a Cary group but I feel that many aren't willing to come to Cary. As Lisa mentioned in her comments we should have two regular locations, either Raleigh or Cary. Hope you can make some final decisions regarding the locations.

    Ciao!

    Buonasera!! Thank you so much for the interest in our group! I'm very excited for our meeting next week and look forward to meeting many of you! I live in Cary but this is not specifically a Cary group. I appreciate all the input on meeting days and locations but our meetup group, as its name implies, is for the interested people of the general Triangle area, and a meeting point should be one specific central location. Brier Creek seems ideal because it's central, has convenient highway access, and is a 15 - 25 min ride from Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and CH. I'm certainly open to suggestions but would like to table the conversation to a meeting if we want to discuss it. Ciao

    Here is suggestion/food for thought: regarding meeting place, why dont we have two regular meeting places, one in Cary and one in North Raleigh? and we can alternate? That might help some folks attend? Lets talk more at our first meeting... Ciao!!

      I like the Brier Creek area because it was close to me as well as those from Raleigh, but I would LOVE it if it was in Durham :)

    I'm not sure we need more than 2 locations, otherwise it gets difficult to manage and rotate? Any thoughts? And I know there is already an Italian group in Chapel hill. Also - North Raleigh/Brier Creek is convenient to RTP. Suggestions for Cary? Any other thoughts?

    Ciao, tutti :-) I wrote to Joe the minute I saw this and joined up. I'm thrilled to join! I also have a suggestion with respect to time/place of meeting? It seems that every group I see meets on Tuesdays! Its the only day of the week that I have trouble making. Would everyone consider another day of the week? Maybe Monday or Wed evenings? even Sat or Sunday? Lets talk at our first meeting! Ciao!!

    Hi Joseph,

    Truly thrilled about this Italian Club. I have a question regarding where thesse meetings are going to be held...are they only in the durham, or raleigh areas? The reason I ask is that I live in Cary and not that close to those areas. Does anyone live in my area? so maybe their can be carpooling. Please keep me posted. Looking forward to meeting my Italian compas

    Ciao!

      I live in Durham it would be nice if we could have to meet up this way as well I don't always like having to go down to Raleigh and cary. I was really glad to see that it was at Brier Creek because that's not very far from where I live as is Cary and other part of Raleigh

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
