Re: [spanish-1002] Changes to the Organization of our Spanish Meetup Group

From: Matthew
Sent on: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 11:22 PM
Hey, everyone, just wanted to let you all know that I've volunteered to 
take over leadership of the group, so no need to worry.  I'll do my best 
to live up to the high standard that Laura has set.  Don't tell her 
this, but I think we need to organize a group trip to France so we can 
show up on her doorstep unannounced and throw a surprise housewarming party.

I'll still be hosting Monday nights in Alhambra every week, so nothing 
is going to change there.  And we're going to continue with weekly 
meetups in Pasadena as well.

We're still figuring out who's going to be hosting what night or nights 
in Pasadena - if anyone might be able to commit every week or every 
other week, let me know.  It's easy, frankly, and Paloma and I can help 
anyone learn how the site works.

We'll get it settled in the next week or so, just keep an eye on the 
Meetup site or your email for new events as usual.

As always, if you have any feedback on the group, activities you'd like 
to do more or less of, anything, just let us know.

Muchas gracias a todos,
Mateo
