Organizers (Or Potential Future Organizers) Discussion Dinner

So I strongly believe a successful Meetup group relies on successful organizers, and for us to be successful, we need to be on the same page with each other.

I'm proposing a dinner night for all current organizers, and anyone who is interested in possibly becoming an organizer for Seattle Nerds Collide. We are looking for friendly, upbeat, social, and flexible nerds who would be willing to host at least one or two Meetups per month. If we can get at least 4 or 5 (Maybe more, depending) who meet that criteria, we will constantly have Meetups going on, with lots of different variety to the group.

Once we establish who will be our active organizers, I'd like to find out some goals we would have as the leadership team, and get some ideas for future Meetups. To make this group successful, it's going to take mutual ideas, and and team effort. That is the whole purpose of this dinner night. To get all great minds together to brainstorm. (Wonder Team powers, ACTIVATE!.....Sorry. Had to do it... lol)

    Hey Guys, We Are Located Right Inside The Door, To The Right, Next To The Pool Table. See You Soon!

    (We will try to get a table upstairs at the pub, but since there are no reservations, I can't guarantee where we will be located. I'll post a comment here once I've got a table, but if you're early or get lost, feel free to call or text me. [masked]-0689. Last Meetup I attended, we had someone who couldn't find us, and didn't attend because she was lost. I hope we don't have that happen again. Please don't hesitate to write down my number and give me a call! Thanks!)

    Organizer's Dinner is tomorrow night at 6pm. Got a good number of people, but would like to keep it at, or below this number. 7-8 organizers may seem like a lot, but remember that most people who sign up either won't attend, or will lose interest in a matter of weeks. As much as I would like to believe every person who signed up would stay as an organizer, it's just not realistic. So I think the number of RSVP's for tomorrow is about perfect. We will be doing a lot of "round table" questions tomorrow, so be ready to share a little about yourself, and ideas you may have for the group, and future events. Thanks again to everyone who signed up. Looking forward to meeting you, and hearing some great ideas. :) See you tomorrow!

    I live up in Mountlake Terrace. Will anyone be heading north after the dinner, at least to Seattle if not farther? I could use a ride home.

    October 15, 2013

    • Steve

      I'm actually leaving work to attend this Meetup, then going right back...So I wouldn't be able to go out of my way. Otherwise I'd be more than willing to play taxi.. If you can figure out transportation, we would love to see you there. Otherwise, we will host another night like this in the future. :)

      October 19, 2013

    • Steve

      Brandon, look like Sachin just offered you a ride home. If you wish to attend, go ahead and just show up. Not going to open up for RSVP's, because we already have a decent number attending. Hope to see you there.

      October 19, 2013

  • sachin

    I just RSVP'd and I want to attend. Is the meetup still on?

    October 19, 2013

    • Steve

      Yes it is. We would love to see you there. :)

      October 19, 2013

  • sachin

    Brandon I live in Belltown, I can give you a ride back up to where you can catch a bus to montlake terrace.

    Hey Folks, I was really hoping to be able to participate, but my schedule is blocked for Sunday.

    October 15, 2013

    • Steve

      No worries, Steve. It seems that everyone else is busy as well. It appears that this "Organizer's Dinner" wasn't going to work out the way I had hoped. Luckily, we have a few people that can make it. Was hoping for more though. Oh well. Maybe next time.

      October 15, 2013

  • Marcus

    May or may not be able to make this pending previously scheduled D&D game. :S

    October 14, 2013

    • Steve

      No worries either way. Thanks for the heads up. :)

      October 14, 2013

  • Josh H.

    so is there a reason the time is 7pm?

    October 12, 2013

    • Jennifer

      I be there around 5:45 if earlier is better

      1 · October 14, 2013

    • Steve

      I just changed the time to 6. :) Thanks for baring with my, guys. Hopefully we got a good time and date dialed in now. :)

      October 14, 2013

  • Josh H.

    i went ahead and added a place, is that the right address?

    October 11, 2013

    • Steve

      You chose the one in Seattle...I just changed it to the one in Renton.

      October 11, 2013

    Sorry, I'm nerded out on Sunday! Next time ......

    October 12, 2013

  • Steve

    So I just scheduled the event for Sunday the 20th. I understand that there might still be schedule conflicts, but we clearly aren't going to be able to meet everyone's availability. Whoever can make it, great. If you can't, no big deal. We will have another night like this in the near future. :) See you next Sunday!

  • Jaime

    Hi, I can't make this weekend as it's GeekGirlCon that weekend, but I am very interested in being an organizer.

    1 · October 11, 2013

  • Steve

    Update: The weekend is approaching fast. Because of schedule conflicts, let's push this Meetup to the following weekend. What day would work best for everyone? Friday the 18th, Saturday the 19th, or Sunday the 20th? I'm up for any of those days. Thanks for your patience. :)

    October 9, 2013

    • Jennifer

      Sunday is fine after 6pm.

      October 11, 2013

    • Steve

      Okay. Maybe we will shoot for a late dinner then.. 7ish?

      October 11, 2013

  • Steve

    I'm thinking I might need to host this dinner on two separate nights, in order to accommodate everyone... Lol. Maybe I will just plan to do this on Saturday AND Sunday night...at 5pm at "A Terrible Beauty Pub" in Renton, right off I405. Work for everyone??? Or does Sunday work for everyone? I can do it either way.

    October 10, 2013

    • Josh H.

      i cant change agin, sunday

      October 11, 2013

    Hi!

    Saturday the 19th would be best at this end. Thanks for asking

    October 10, 2013

    • Steve

      Hi Ken. Some other's schedules don't work for Saturday. Does Sunday work for you? Or should we reschedule?

      October 10, 2013

  • Steve

    Would everyone be okay with next Saturday evening at 5? Still deciding location. Maybe Renton..

    October 6, 2013

    • Steve

      Let me know what days work for you Josh. Want to try and make this work for everyone. With only 8 of us, it shouldn't be too hard. Even if we have to wait a week or two. That shouldn't be a problem. I'm open pretty much any weekend day. (Friday-Sundays).

    • Josh H.

      so thier ARE group members up in Lynwood *throws up hands*

      1 · October 6, 2013

    • Steve

      Lol. I'm glad there are some. I tend to stay near Seattle, or south of it..So it's good to know there are others willing to host more events up North.

      October 7, 2013

  • Sharonne

    How about A Terrible Beauty Pub in Renton?

    1 · October 6, 2013

    • Steve

      I actually think I've been there before. I remember it being nice...and pretty roomy. Great food, too! And last I checked, pubs serve drinks. So I'm in! lol

      October 6, 2013

    • Josh H.

      sure

      October 6, 2013

  • Josh H.

    so when and where?

    October 5, 2013

    • Steve

      How does next Saturday sound? Maybe 5pm? But where at? Any suggestions from anyone else? What's a good central location?

      October 5, 2013

    • Steve

      We could even do Gameworks again... They had decent food, and plenty of seating. Pretty quiet upstairs, for talking.

    Hi, I am the organizer if Meetup.com/Seattle-Brainiacs
    You can't get much nerdier than that! Whether I can attend depends on when this meeting will be. Keep me posted please!

    1 · October 5, 2013

    • Steve

      Sounds good, Ken. Will do! :)

      October 5, 2013

  • Brien G.

    Hi,
    I would be interested in helping out with the organizing of events and such. I think with a group this large and of such diverse interests, we can put together some unusual events. Even if you don't need me as a full time organizer, I'd be happy to share ideas and help out.

    October 5, 2013

    • Steve

      You hit the nail on the head, Brien. We have a VERY diverse group, with all kinds of interests. Simply being a "nerd" doesn't put us in any specific category. If I've learned anything from this group, is that every single one of us is different. I'd love to recruit some more organizers with different interests who would be willing to host different kinds of Nerdy Meetups. I think it would be the best way to satisfy everyone in this group. :) Like I said above, we will wait and see how many people sign up, then we will plan a date and location. Can't wait to see you there and hear your ideas. :)

      October 5, 2013

  • Josh H.

    im betting fourth person on the leadership list wont attend, dan or whatever his name

    October 4, 2013

    • Steve

      I'm not betting either way. I'd love to see him attend, but who knows. He got the email, just like everyone else. :) So we'll see. I'd just like to get some dedicated people on board as event organizers, so we can broaden these Meetups, and get some more variety. Some people may like gaming, while others prefer more active Meetups, and some may prefer movie nights, or conventions... It would be great to get together, and just find out what kind of Meetups our Organizers would like to host, so we have some variety. :) Thanks for signing up. We'll give it some time, see whose interested, and then we can plan a date and location.

      October 4, 2013

    • Josh H.

      ya im coming with more ideas just need the time places

      October 4, 2013

  • Sharonne

    I want to be one of the wonder twins!!

    1 · October 4, 2013

    • Steve

      Lol. How bout Wonder Triplets?! Haha. Thanks for signing up. :) Like I told Josh, we will give it some time, see who all signs up and is interested, then we will plan a date and location that works for everyone. :)
