      Hi at Biercraft right now on the patio

      Thanks so much Helena. Sorry I missed you.

    Hi
    I couldn't find the group!! This was my first meetup and I don't know anyone. I didn't see any identifying signs of a group and I did not have a way to text Helena.

    June 17, 2013

    • Gregg

      Don't be deterred Isabel. This was an unusual event for a meet up. Generally they occur at a location that is more intimate and there's fewer people. Make sure you give another event a try.

    Too crowded. Couldn't find anyone from our group.

    It wasn't a smart plan to meet in such a crowded place. No one was at the meeting spot at 1:00, so I had to wait till 2:00.

    At the meeting spot at 2:00, the three people who were there first were talking with each other and didn't look around, which would have been polite as it would have signalled to newcomers that they were looking to meet a group of people there.

    It was my first event, so I didn't recognize anyone. If the organizer had carried a small sign, for example saying "Meetup" or "SS" it would have helped.

    As soon as we started walking, half of the people in the group disappeared in the thick crowd before I had a chance to even say "hi". It was a constant struggle while jostling in the huge crowd to keep in view the few people whom I had just met and barely recognized. Also, 72 people signed up but only one-third of them showed up.

    Overall, what a disappointment!

      In my experience most meet ups have far fewer than 75 participants but tend to have a fairly good showing. A meet up for this kind of event is unusual.

      I remember somebody was standing in front of St. Augustine at around noon while I was waiting and walking around and asked me about Save On Foods, and I said no. Was that one of you guys?

      June 16, 2013

  • Kathy Di L.

    I was at the meetup spot at noon and only a hand full of people were there.

    Hello everyone!! Great numbers so far :) Well like I said before we will meet up in front of St. Augustines on 8th and Commercial for 12 noon and then have another meeting place at 2 pm in front of Starbucks on 2nd and Commercial. If you want to arrive later please let me know closer to the date and we can arrange a meeting spot. You can also find me at the roller disco place sometime during the day. Please bring cash for your purchases as the line up at the bank machines are increadible. It's going to be fun!! Hope to see all of you there Sunday :)
