Re: [CFL-Sci-Fi-Fans] Need feedback on Outdoor Meetup

Can't say I'm much of an outdoors person.  I know that's the sci-fi fan stereotype, but that's just the way it is!  The heat would overwhelm me right away.

Here's the deal guys - most of you know I run 2 meetup groups that are totally different! A couple of you are cross-members, and you know that to say the other group" isn't really active" would be the understatement of the century!

Both this group and the other group (not even the same person, amazingly!) Have suggested outdoor activities, like going to a park. In this group I believe we discussed possibly doing a movie showing outdoors if we could get the equipment. (How much is that blow-up screen?! LOL)

In that spirit, I have so far scheduled a meetup for the other group (It's the Orlando ADD Social Club) for Saturday, May 15th, 4PM at Blanchard Park. My concern obviously is that with the distinct lack of participation so far, I'll be out there by myself - or maybe having a one-on-one 'meeting' which has happened more often than not.

So - before I say anything to them - would you guys like to have a meetup same day/place?! We could have a 'joint' meetup of sorts, or simply stagger the timing so that each group has the potential to be 'exclusive'.

You can look at profiles, but just in case they are private I won't say who the crossover members are. Some of you might already know, and they are free to chime-in of course!

Color me selfish, but I just really don't want to go to the effort of scheduling something like this and not have anyone show! In plain slang, it would suck. :-) And subject-wise we don't have a whole lot in common but I don't see this as a therapy session for anyone. Just a chance to get outside and breathe the air! Obviously having a kid, I've got everything from beach balls to Frisbee to a heavy plastic horseshoe set we can setup! It'll be fun....whaddaya say?
