Onyx News- August 4, 2010: Meetup details for White Party, Golf Outing, and more/ New Event Added

From: Lakeisha

Greetings Onyx:
I hope everyone is well. Since several people have joined since I gave my little intro of Onyx, I'd thought I'd start with a general walkthrough.
  • To the members that have recently joined group (and to the members that limit their group participation to occasionally reading e-mails) welcome to the group! This group hosts a variety of events for black professionals throughout the bay area, but primarily in the Peninsula and the South Bay. The goal of the group continues to be to create an avenue for black professionals to connect both professionally and socially. Since the point of this group (and Meetup more generally), is to ?use the internet to get off the internet,? I hope that you will soon participate in events or volunteer to host your own events. The strength of this group depends on the energy and enthusiasm of its members.
  • Onyx is member-driven group (meaning that we want our members to plan and host events). So, if you have some event that you want to share with the group, please email and I'll try to make it happen. Also, if you have friends or family that would be interested in participating (especially the ones that lament the lack of black people in this area), please spread the word about the group. This group has grown and continues to grow through the power of word of mouth promotion. The more, the merrier.
  • If you want to get a crash course overview of the group, please check out the FAQ page, the About page (explains the origin of the group and its focus) page, the Calendar (shows upcoming activities) Photos (pictures from past events), and the Message board.


So with that, here are the announcements:
  • First Fridays White Party- More Details: Okay, for those attending (word is the event is sold out so hopefully you purchased your ticket(s)) and interested, my tentative plan is to meet at the Starbucks at 1057 MacArthur Boulevard San Leandro, CA[masked] at 6:30 pm. I don't know the parking situation but it might make since to combine cars and drive a mile up the road to the Dunsmuir Mansion. If you're interested in meeting up, please indicate in the comments or email me directly.
  • Golf Outing on Saturday: I'm looking forward to the event. If you have already paid for the package (7 of you), then you are good to go. If you haven't paid but plan to purchase a la carte, please bring cash. Apparently, they don't take credit cards.
  • Stern Grove on Sunday August 15: I'm so jazzed about this event. If you are interested in getting to Stern Grove early to secure a good spot with me, please email me directly.
  • Fantasy Football: I added the location details. The event will be at the Old Pro.
  • August 29th NEW EVENT Beach Picnic, Volleyball, Hike & Horse back Riding @ Half Moon Bay: Let join up with Mingles and have a fun family beach day at Poplar beach in Half Moon Bay.

    That's all for now. Take care.
