Well 1 week to go and 75 topic views at the time of this post.

Now if we can can get even 10% of you. to take an hour or two out of your week to stop by that's 7.5 attendees!

See you there.

I have come to the conclusion that there is not enough interest in continuing our south sound meets every month.
With over 100 page views only 1 other person was willing to even take even a single hour out of the week to support the OC community.

It's a bit depressing but I feel I have better ways to utilize my free time instead of waiting for people that have no intention of showing up.

For all those who did make it in the past, a big thank you. perhaps we can plan a big picnic or something again next summer..

Carry on.

My problem is that I can't make it to Lacy. I suggested a while back that we set up something in Pierce county like in Tacoma or Lakewood or somewhere closer to there. At the times when I have a car to drive, I can't afford to drive all the way to Lacy. When I don't have a car, I can't exactly take a bus to Lacy either. I'm fairly sure there are others like me.

Grim I understand your situation,

however my point was the other couple hundred people who looked, left no comment and made no effort are the reason why it has become an exercise in futility. back when technoweenie and some others were in the area we were averaging 6-10 people every month at starbucks and a few picnics in the summer with better turnout. I have been there every month and lately if 1 person comes by it is sort of a success. I've met a few new faces and then never saw them again.


The biggest thing we had all summer was the august picnic when mary, big dave and a few more showed up giving us like 12 people. I understand people have busy lives, I most certainly could be doing other things than trying to set up these meetups. over the past couple years I have consistently made the effort because I did and still do think it's important to the community and to our rights. however I cannot justify, no matter how great I think golddigger is, continuing to make the effort if only he shows up.

I will keep an eye on the forums to see if somebody else makes an effort that I can participate in, until then carry on.

Grim, nothing stopping you from starting your own meetup thread. You can have one within a couple of blocks from you.
