**nb we are NOT meeting up on Monday Aug 5 - I just put that in to get the Announcement out, and, having done it, have no clue how to take the time off it! We are delighted with the enthusiastic responses to the message, by the way!**
Hi Oxford Movie Fans. This isn't a MeetUp itself, but a plea for us together to try to rejuvenate the group, which used to be very active, but has been much less so, lately, partly because the organisers, who have done this job for a long time, have changing commitments and would really welcome and value more people in the group getting involved in organising. Its not really that onerous, and if we got, say, 8-10 people interested in sometimes organising something, it could be a once in 6 months commitment only! All you need to do is ask Richard, the group organiser (he appears in the photo in the left hand panel), his name is first in the list of organisers, to put you on the list of assistant organizers. Then you use the website to schedule a MeetUp, print off and take a MeetUp sign with you, and then its really up to all the rest of us to come along, chat, have a good time - there's no onerous duties on the organiser beyond the logistics of setting it up on the website. I'm a bit busy this week (starting Monday 29 July) but next week, starting Aug 5, I'll have a look at what films are on and will try to organise a MeetUp. A lot of folks are away from Oxford in August, but it would be good if we could get more interest in widening the organising circle of the group in the next month or two, then from Sept/Oct really try to re-start things and have regular films. I've met so many interesting and friendly people through the group, so I think we all owe it to ourselves to get things started again!
