New Member meetup

New member meet up is moving to Sunday's!

Since we have so many new members we thought it would be good to have an opportunity to meet them and introduce ourselves. We will meet on the third Sunday of every month and the event is open to everyone.

For existing members this is a chance to introduce yourselves and the group to the newbies. We will not have any scheduled activities which will give us a chance to visit and get to know everyone better. Even though the start time is 4:30 you may join us at anytime.

You may park in the Museum of Glass parking lot and the Social will validate your ticket for a reduced fee on the parking. Just be sure to bring your parking ticket with you and your server will give you the validation ticket.

See you there!

    Way to many people and we were left tour own devices to meet others.

      Hannah, it was tough to get around to meet everyone at first, but it opened once the wine started pouring. The location is a super nice environment. In order to make it less crowded, they would either have to move it to another place : ( Or limit it to about 100 people :-(. I think most of us met quite a few people, for a new members meet-up, and now we can try and get in some of the other future meet ups. I was particularly happy that they gave us name tapes, so that we could informally know everybody's name right off the bat. Short of that, we were able to freely walk about and question everybody in order to get to know them further.

      It is definitely much harder to meet people in large crowds.

    It was great to meet so many new people. Kristy and Jeff were awesome hosts, as usual. Thank you very much for putting this together.....

    P.S. Thank you for adding the wine tasting to this meet up.

    WOW! What a great turnout. That was awesome! The food was great also, and the service was right there also. I cant wait for the next new member meeting. It was great meeting the people there. Hopefully meet many more people next time also. Thank you Kristi for setting it up.

    It's always great service and food there but this venue has become way to small and not conducive to a crowd this large. I think most of us found a table and sat with our Friends because mingling in a packed house is very hard way to socialize when we are packed in
    Like sardines.! We need a larger restaurant or open air venue like a park with cabana or a larger restaurant or a home,,,,

      However realizing, that in the winter months a park is out of the question. :)

    I am new to the group and have been looking forward to this meet up for weeks :) but circumstances have changed and I won't be attending this one. :( You look like a fun group! Hopefully next time! :)

    I spoke with the Social today and they will be prepared for our large group. They have also scheduled another wine tasting for us. We are not sure if they will be pouring three or four wines yet but you will get tickets for your tastes when you check in with me, one ticket per taste. The tastes are free and the wines will be available for purchase. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!
