Hmmm....

We were careful to avoid schedule conflicts when we picked our meeting dates. Are the DAW and MAW meetings 'special' events? Did they change their schedule? Or did we do less than a good job in our scheduling?

As I said before, I am out this time because of an "Open House" or Family Fun Day as they are calling it this time at work. The good news is only 85 days from today until I am retired. If anything changes I will be there where ever it is.

Just thinking, With the two other clubs having special events and participation being low maybe the date could be changed to the first weekend in May and see how many could be there on that date.

Just a thought.

Default APRIL meeting!!

We went trough all that crap years ago we changed a meeting for someone for "another meeting" and have not seen him since!! NO!!! changing of dates!!! We all have something to do every day every minute. YOU decide what you want to do You change not us!! If you can't make it to church do you call them up and ask them to change their service time for you???

I plan to be there also, if we fine a place to have the meeting. And I agree with you, set a date and stick with it. The only reason I made the comment about the date change is when we talked about, and set the meeting dates the two other clubs did not have anything set on that date. And since there are a number of members of all three clubs I guess, and the local Michigan IAP I guess being the smallest, it takes the backseat. The other clubs meet once a month we only meet 4 times a year. I only belong to this club I don't want to see the meeting canceled because of lack of participation. If only 2 or 3 of us show up so be it, I would still like to get together someplace somewhere.

Default The schedule is the scheudle - but the place may not be the place.

Yep - I got a little sloppy in the scheduling a few years ago and it caused some consternation. We all agreed then, that the schedule, once established, needs to stand. Things (attendance) improved significantly after we decided to stick to the schedule.

We also decided to ‘try’ to not change locations (once established), although it is easier to change locations than dates. We aren’t supposed to change location unless there is a last minute issue at the host home (like a broken water heater, etc.). However, since we haven’t been very good at establishing locations ahead of time, we’re being flexible.

There’s still time for someone to volunteer their place … but if you don’t see any notices to the contrary, plan on my house (6007 Justine, Belleville, MI 48111). Remember, the free tutorial starts at 1:30; the regular meeting starts at 2:00.

On that note:
It is time to volunteer to bring soft drinks (diet & industrial strength), sweat snacks, and salty snacks … oh yeah, cups & plastic good. I’ll have some chili ready.
