Friday May 18th

Post  aemilius on Sun May 13, 2012 8:08 pm

Hey, so it looks like the next meeting is May 18th? I hope no one minds me starting this thread. I would offer my house, but it's too inconvenient for most people. If we don't have a venue for this meeting, does anyone know a quiet cafe or something like that? I was going to suggest meeting a little earlier and going to a park, but personally I don't think I'd be able to make it to SF until 6 or later (work, boo Evil or Very Mad)

I hear a lot of people have final exams this week? I remember those... Shocked
Does anyone know a place that's open later than 10? It seems like our meetings tend to run longer than that.
I've had some meetings at Crossroads on Delancey, and it's usually pretty quiet.
Marsh Cafe on Valencia is also open 'til 10, but I've never been there.
Would it be better for me to just pick a place and then see who can make it?
I don't know, so I'll check back here in the morning.

I've been sort of thinking that it might be more effective to just hold one meeting a month. Since we decided to stop holding meetings at Avi's house, it's been a struggle to find an acceptable location for our Friday meetings, usually down to the last minute. In my opinion, if we're going to have a meeting, the location should be determined and the meeting set before the actual day of. For me personally, I like to make plans in advance and not knowing whether or not a meeting is going to be held and wondering all day long can be a little stressful. I'm not placing blame on any one of us, as no one has any real set responsibilities--I just think we would be more successful as a group if we had some more solid planning taking place. I've been a little bummed by the fact that people seem to be losing interest in the group and I think that might be in part due to our lack of organization. I'm just throwing the idea out there to have one definitely-going-to-happen meeting a month where we can take the time to plan structured activities and hopefully get something accomplished. And then additional supplementary and more spontaneous meetings can be planned as needed for activities, to get specific things done, or to socialize. I don't know if Lorae is still down for having meetings at their spot on the first Sunday of each month, but having one pre-determined location seems like a good place to start off and I would personally like to continue having Sunday meetings there if that works for our wonderful host and everyone in the group. I'm only speaking for myself, obviously, and hope that others will voice their opinions too. I don't want the meetings to just stop happening, and I think we need to re-evaluate how we can be more successful.

(Going to post this as a thread too so hopefully a couple more people might see it.)

Agree with everything you said. Let's plan to meet on June 3rd, then.

glad to hear someone else is interested in attending! so far, we do not have an official location. still waiting to hear back from Lorae about whether we can hold the meeting at their place. I heard Lindsey (sp?) may be willing to have it at their apartment. i'm guessing there won't be that many attendees, so perhaps a smaller venue would be fine. i think it might be a good idea to send out an email to everyone on the listserve announcing the meeting since there seems to be less traffic on the forum. hopefully we will have a location determined sooner than later.
