    Stanley, the "10 are going" is not accurate. These RSVPs were sent weeks before a date was even announced. Is there any way to confirm with these people who actually intends to come?

    December 16, 2014

    • Stanley

      U can ask them through Meetup message service. Usually we just show up at the location n they'll come.

    Al, I have no idea how MeetUp works, how to start a Poll, etc. I tried to directly contact several people who are supposed to be members but, apparently, they have not received my messages. In any event, people will recognize you, not me, as a leader here and will be more likely to reply. Again, I am short on free time for the next 2 weeks but I would like to help.

      Hi Stanley. The most important things for me is to be sure that other people will actually show up to this meeting. I am happy to help but please keep in mind I must travel for one hour to get there.

      December 15, 2014

    • Stanley

      O well its only 30mins for me. But there's no guarantee how many will show up. Usually the attendance is pretty decent!

    Al, as I mentioned in a previous message, I want to help but I don't have much free time until after Jan.1. I am working 12 hrs/day now and have out-of-town relatives arriving now. Although it is not convenient, I can go to this meetup on Wed.nite BUT I want to be REALLY sure that others will attend. Pls keep in mind that I will travel over an hour to get there and I will be really unhappy if other people don't show up.
