Default Chapter Meeting 1

Let's use this thread to plan out our first chapter meeting.

I know we're pretty spread out here in southern California. With some planning we should be able to come up to some place that's amiable to all.

My place is open to the meeting but, even though it has easy access to most freeways, it may not be convenient for everyone.

I also noticed a couple of new folks from the San Diego area. We should invite them to join our little band.

So... if you have suggestions about where to meet and subjects to cover, this is the place to post.

For places to meet, maybe look at where everyone resides to determine the best place. As for subjects I suspect the first meeting will probably be just everyone getting to know each other.

Joe, really looking forward to this meeting. I know that there are quite a few members in our general vicinity that haven't yet checked in. Unfortunately, I can't find them any longer, since we no longer have access to the member map! A real shame.

I think we can find a central meeting place to just hangout and get to know eachother, and maybe bring our favorite pen too ;)

Hi, sorry I'm late to this. (Got a new puppy.)

How about setting up the first meeting at a mid-point resturant - say for lunch? We then decide more about further meetings and stuff after we meet the first time. That would make it easier on most of us and wouldn't put a lot of pressure on one person right off to host the first meeting.

I like that idea too. Now where to meet? One place that comes to mind is Corona. I know they have restaurants there... I've seen them

or Anaheim, or Costa Mesa or or or......

And while we have our thinking caps, WHEN?

Decisions, decisions.

With the holidays coming up I'd say the sooner the better, before we're all to busy. For me the only day I would be able to attend would be on a Saturday though.

Saturday would probably be the best day. Now, which Saturday?

Jeff, since Dale said it may be difficult for him to make it on 11/22, how about if we shoot for 11/15---that's less than two weeks off. As for location, just about any place suits me. You suggested Corona, which would be okay; but is that anywhere near a central location? Since you have the members' locations, just pick a spot, and I'm sure we'll all be okay with it. It would be a good idea to pick a location close to the freeway system so everyone will be able to find it easily, don't you think?
