Hello, my thinking was not to schedule in-person meetup until we had a certain critical mass of members - but in the interest of bringing some life and substance to this newly created group....and start doing and living up to its mission and charter.....what might be most practical for more people would be to initially hold some online meetups, chat room style.
I was thinking of something like "Mondays @ 6" as a tag line and actual practice. Meaning...holding a 30 minute online meetup chat room style on Mondays @ 6am, and also again a 6pm. That would give you 2 chances to get involved and participate with really having to prepare or plan too much - just log on and jump in.
I understand we are all busy with hectic schedules, lots of competing interest and 'stuff' to manage. I'm trying to conceive of something simple and easy, no stress and convenient for everyone. For me hosting two 30 minute sessions, one at 6am, the other at 6pm is manageable....and weekly. So that's the plan, commencing September 8 - if you can make it, great!. If anyone wants to chat on a particular topic or subject - please...by all means use the discussion group on this Meetup site and let us know!
