1st meeting: introduce each other and think of colleagues to invite

I suggest we'll meet at Brookstreet Hotel "Perspectives Restaurant" in Kanata ( 525 Legget Dr, Ottawa, ON K2K 2W2). It's located in the heart of high-tech community of Ottawa, it's clean and quiet and normally not very busy (although I'm not sure about Christmas time -- but we can book in advance)

I do not set the date of the first meeting, pending responses from participants
Let's discuss the schedule and tentative agenda for following meetings.

Please, note that our venue (The Perspectives Restaurant) is not to be confused with other venues of Brookstreet Hotel ( "Option" Jazz Lounge, "B" Cafe, and a multitude of meeting/business  halls and rooms)

    The show must go on. I'm starting to Brookstreet Hotel for the 1st Tester Meetup.

    Hi Alex,

    Sounds good. If anything changes tonight I'll be there. I'll be sure to make the next one!

    Enjoy.

    Julia, John,

    Still I incline to keep the meeting on Tuesday, mostly because Paul is still coming.
    Also, I expect some colleges of mine (who I invited directly) may show up though they did not bother to register with the Meetup, so you cannot see their RSVP.

    But most importantly, I feel that even more people may become lukewarm to the whole idea if we keep postponing. That's why the first item on agenda is how to achieve reasonable and attendance and stable schedule. Ask yourself, how many s/w testers you invited to our Meetup through you public (i.e., LinkedIn, re-twitts, Facebook) and private channels. This is also the first question to discuss if anybody shows up at all. In the worst case scenario I'll have to discuss it with myself (and I'm coming, it's for sure) :-)

    Alex.

    Hi All, I am also about to skip this meetup because of last minute business. I would appreciate if this meeting could be rescheduled again.

    Hi All,

    I initially was in for this meetup and am now more like 25-50%. I would have to work around a last minute commitment by my wife. Is this still a go with the limited group we have that have indicated they will be attending? Perhaps it should be re-scheduled again and hopefully we can drum up more attendees?

    Sorry Alex but I can't make the meeting anymore. My son has his Christmas concert that night. Perhaps we should postpone to January?

      Paul, it means that you your're fully booked for the rest of December?

    I added a more detailed note for those who might never been in Brookstreet Hotel:

    our venue (The Perspectives Restaurant) is not to be confused with other venues of Brookstreet Hotel ( "Option" Jazz Lounge, "B" Cafe, and a multitude of meeting/business halls and rooms)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It is not supposed to be busy on Tuesday, but I nevertheless will make a reservation for ALEX.

    I re-scheduled the meeting for Tuesday, December 17th. Same place, same time (Brookstreet Hotel Restaurant, 7 p. m.)

    The reason: not enough people confirmed their attendance. I'll be going with the second round of invitation. Sorry, if some of you get invited twice.
