It was a pleasure to post the info about the TOTV luncheon, renew some old acquaintenances and meet some new Chat Packers. ;D

It was too bad that Fumar and Tal weren't there .. I think we are all curious to meet them ... perhaps next time. (Tal ... I am at Doggy Doo Run every single day with Brutus and Biggins, usually in big dog park. Please come say hi).

Next luncheon is Friday February 15, at 3 PM! Crispers seemed to work well, and if the weather is better, we can use the outdoor patio. :bigthumbsup:

Redwitch is suggesting we should change the venue; so I'll leave it to her to suggest one (hopefully central) for the February 15 luncheon.

Fran, sorry you missed the lunch, it was fun. ;D

Barb

What's the reason for the change? It was confusing enough keeping everyone informed and on track, so my own opinion (and I think Barb's too) is not to change the venue or date unless absolutely necessary.

And if we want to keep this going consistently on a monthly basis, I agree with Barb, that we need to keep it less confusing and with so many people coming and going it would be best to just maintain the time and place as much as possible.

This too is my opinion. Kath :redface:

The problem is that the tables were on a long bench on one side and two chairs on the other. This meant a very long banquet arrangement that made it hard to get up when needed. More importantly, you could really only talk to the people right next to you. So, if we could find something a little more conducive to gathering tables together, it would be nice.

Eating on the patio is possible but when it gets really hot or humid or is cold like now, I certainly wouldn't want to be outside.

Good point Red. I did feel like I missed the opportunity to talk to some of you all at the other end of the table. Let's keep it at Crispers if we can do something else with seating. Changing the venue might cause some problems for those of us who suffer from senior moments (like all of us !!!!) : : :

If this is not maintained consistently, confusion will reign, just as it did during the initial planning.
Barb

I agree; however Redwitch said there were people who wanted the change. I think it would be confusing to keep changing the venue.

I thought it would be better to be consistent and have it at the same time (3PM) at the same place (Crispins) which is central, on the third Friday of every month. That way everyone can plan ahead. And if we start to get huge crowds, that would be the time to consider changing the venue.

Actually, I think the inside tables at Crispins can be moved, I did move two tables into a different position. It just wasn't done at the last luncheon! The patio is especially nice and the tables are definitely moveable there.

I think if we talk to the mgr at Crispers we could find a better area in the restaurant to meet, this was the first time and we should be able to fine tune as we go along, I thought it was a great location and enjoyed meeting everyone. Kudos to everyone that helped set this get together up.

Sadly, I had sent the message to Barefoot as a private message with the silly thought it would stay private, at least until it had been discussed and hashed about a little and I did give her my reasons why. Moving the tables indoors is really not feasible. If we bunch them together, only those on the end could comfortably get out. No matter what, it is one long line of tables (see the pics recently posted). The patio does seem nice and perfect for when the weather is conducive to being outdoors for more than 15 minutes.

Personally, I don't think it would bother most if the locale were to change even month to month so long as it was well advertised.
