Well folks, this was the second meeting we ever had, and it actually went quite well. At least better than I had expected. People actually showed up! No no, ok so seriously though people came with lots of good ideas and a lot of interest in the whole thing. Which by my standards is excellent for where we’re at. Now granted, it did run a little long, but that’s because we actually have a lot to talk about. Which is also excellent. I promise, the next meetings will be a little less business, a little more fun, and a good bit shorter. Some of that we’ll have to figure out as we go.
Hopefully though, this did allow everyone a little bit of insight as well as encouragement for what this can turn into. I also hope that everyone got a little bit of a feel for what kind of people we’re looking for to be in the group. I encourage everyone, to right now bring anyone that you can think of who might enjoy all of this. Members are the biggest thing we need at the moment so bring everyone you can.
This will be a time for everyone to get to know one another, show off projects, tinker with something, get help for a project, fantasize about what you want to do, or just show up and enjoy the company/coffee. As often as possible, some sort of little time passer will be provided. For this first meeting we are hoping to have lock picking/cracking and possibly jewelry crafting. Thanks to Pumping Station: One for the ideas. They had lock picking at their first gathering, and had knitting at subsequent ones. Whether you’re interested in these little events or not, feel free to stop in and check us out. Who knows, you might find that you just enjoy chatting.
Don’t forget to tell friends, family, or random people on the street. We want to try and draw as many people in as we can.
See you there!
