  • At one of the 2 pick-up locations, then get on the bus full with Meetup members!
  •   I’ve always wanted to do this and now I’m doing it for the first time so bear with me. I want to make sure we have enough RSVPs before I start collecting money for this trip. Because I have to charter a 55 person bus and get the show tickets too it’s a lot of money about $4000 to put up front!  

    Once we get enough RSVPs I’ll let members know how to pay, but for now just RSVP.

     I did work out the total cost and it’s going to be $82.75 a person for this event.

    I made this a featured event today to see if we can get more members to sign up for this great event and deal. We need a minimum of 50 paid RSVP’s by June 21st. So please ask your friends and fellow Meetup members if they want to go on this great trip! I am not going to start collecting money until we get more RSVPs. We have 21 members signed up on 2 groups. I’m trying to get this posted on more Meetup groups.

    This sounds like a nice event, but I will not be able to go as it becomes a work night as the event progresses.
    Have you considered doing a trip to Mass MOCA in North Adams? That might be fun and there's lots of restaurants etc. to dine at. WOuld you like me to check out doing a trip out there...maybe in late summer?

    I'd love to do this but cannot make the July 14 date. If you need to schedule it for any date after that, I'm in! Great idea, Biagio!
