For years, members have been asking how to find travel partners through this meetup group. As such, we are going to try something new this month - a Talk Travel with the specific them of "Finding Travel Buddies." I have a few ideas on how to facilitate discussions between potential travel partners based on destination, activity level, and more. The goal will be to identify who is actively looking for travel buddies, and then get attendees to move around meeting others with similar interests.
Not looking for a travel partner, but still want to attend. No worries, Dan will host a table for people that simply want to come talk travel.
We will be at Rogue Eastside Pub - where we will have multiple tables outside in the beer garden if sunny, or inside in the Bistro area if rainy. Look for the meetup signs. At Rogue, please order food and/or drink at the main bar and then join our group. And, it is Tiki Tuesday at Rogue. Member of the Rogue Nation (free to join), get a discount if wearing a Tiki shirt.
Talk Travels are free, however, all attendees are asked to donate $3 - $5 to cover meetup costs and buy the speaker/facilitator a drink. Talk Travels are often super popular and get wait-lists. So no showing is tough on other travelers, the speakers, and the venue. Please be considerate and honor your RSVP.
