I am so glad to see a big group signed up for this Meet & Greet! I am definitely looking forward to meeting many of your and seeing those of you I already know. To make sure that everyone has a chance to meet everyone in the group, we will begin with a mini-reception and, then, split up to several tables.
7pm-8pm - Mixing and Mingling at the Bar: When you arrive, tell the host that you are there for the Meetup Mixer, then head back to the bar area. Make sure you check in with me to say hello and get a name tag. Then, feel free to order a drink at the bar. I know this is common sense, but each person is responsible for their own tab.
8pm-10pm - More Mixing and Dinner: We will continue mingling at the bar, but table space will be limited. So for those who would like to have dinner and get to know a smaller group, we will have a table or two reserved. Please make to check that you are having dinner on the sign-in sheet and we will add you to the waiting list with the restaurant. Or, just continue to mingle and eat at the bar. :)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or text at 630.740.2947 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please make sure to keep your RSVP up-to-date, with this many Young Gwinnettans joining us on a Saturday night, McCrays is going to have a hard time keeping up. So, the better the information I have for them in terms of the size of our group, the better prepared they can be to accommodate us.
It's been a long time since we had a Meet & Greet! It's all my fault - I have been slacking on putting some of these events together. And, with the holidays all done with - January can feel like a lonely month. So, let's fill it up with a fun get together.
There have been a lot of new members who have joined the group since then, so let's all get together - new members and old - and meet each other. :)
