New venues and ideas for meetings - Houston Skeptics

From: Naomi
Sent on: Wednesday, May 13, 2009 11:40 AM
Many thanks to the people who have given me some feedback on new locations for meetings. If you check the calendar, we're having a Skeptics in the Pub meeting next month thanks to one member, and another person has sent me info for a place with a private room that we'll try soon. It's somewhat difficult to find places that are large enough for our growing group, reasonably priced, centrally located, and not too noisy to preclude having someone speak.

Some people have also sent me suggestions for meetings, such as meeting at the Science Museum at a particular time to all see an exhibit or planetarium show together, or having a fun time at a local restaurant that claims to be haunted and gives 'tours'. These are great ideas! However, when I asked the people to follow up and make arrangements, or if they would be willing to be the point person at the location (in the event I can't attend), I don't receive a response. I'm willing to put everything on the calendar and send the emails, but if we (for instance) decide to meet at a museum, I feel someone needs to be available with a sign or tshirt so that group members know where to congregate.

I don't feel that this is 'my' group and invite anyone with ideas - who are willing to at least be the point person - to contact me with the location, time, costs, event description, and how to 'meet up' once you arrive. I'll put it on the calendar, post it on Craigslist, skepchik.org, Facebook, and JREF calendars, as well as email the group.

Thanks!

Skeptically yours....Naomi
