Happy Thanksgiving and a few notes!

Hello, Meetup members!!

First, I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

And, I would just like to pass along some important information to you about the drumming Meetup site. I have received some questions about posting events on the site, and there appears to be a little confusion about this. So, I need to clarify for you all.

First, I need to tell you (if you haven't already noticed), we (me - Kristie Vosburg (the site Organizer) and the Assistant Organizers Tom Gill, Russ Anderson, and DrumDoctor Glenn (who will actually be leaving the country for a few months in mid December)) post all kinds of drumming events on the website. But just because we post the events doesn't necessarily mean we will be attending them (and I will mark a "NO" for my RSVP reply if I will not be attending). We get requests from different people and groups to post events for them on the site, and whoever "posts" the event is then listed as the "Organizer" of the Meetup (for the purposes of the Meetup site) - but this may not be true of the event itself (for example, Mr. So'n'So may ask for us to post his drum circle, and we will do it, but Mr. So'n'So is the actual person hosting the event).

This brings up another point. For all of you, being a member of the Meetup site gives you the privilege of being able to ask for events to be posted. To do this, you can do one of two things. You can either email me (Kristie Vosburg) or Tom Gill, Russ Anderson, or DrumDoctor Glenn if you'd like to have an event posted. Or, you can go to the calendar section of the website and post an "idea". We will then get an email stating what the idea is, and we can decide if the event should be posted or not. I've gotten requests for some great events in the past, but not all of them are suitable for our Meetup site (they are not focused enough on drumming, which is what our website is really for). And this is also a reason that we have an Organizer and Assistant Organizers for the website. It is a good "double-check" for events to be posted (if all members had the capability to just post any event they want, I can guarantee that we would start to get events whose primary focus is not drumming - I've seen it happen before).

So, if you are hosting or know of a drumming event that you'd like to see posted on our calendar, please don't hesitate to post it as an "idea" on the website or email me (Kristie), Tom, Russ, or Glenn. Then, we can get back to you about it and find out about the details. After all, that is what we're all about - Meetups!
