Our February 2013 meeting was last night, and in spite of a few technical mishaps (the library lost our room reservation, so we ended up moving to the Beaumont Branch Library, to a 12-person room with no projector) I think it was an excellent first meeting of the year! For a meeting that was planned in under a week, I think we had an excellent turnout, and the presentation was very well received.
Therefore, it’s time to start planning for March’s meeting!
In browsing the Lexington Public Library Room Request Schedule, it looks like Thursday nights are a pretty safe bet moving forward, as far as finding a large conference room with a projector at a library. Saturday afternoons are still a possibility as well, given that a few people in the group aren’t in the Lexington area, and it might be easier to show up on a weekend.
Another option, going back to the original roots of BGLUG and LPLUG before it, might be to look at meeting up for lunch from time to time. The real problem I see with that is excluding people not in the Lexington area.
Realistically, we need to have a meeting to hash out exactly when and where the majority of people are able to get together. I would, therefore, propose an IRC meeting on Tuesday, February 12th, at 9pm. If this time isn’t good, and you’d like to share your opinion on locations and times for upcoming meetings, feel free to leave a comment on this post, join the Google+ Community and leave a comment there, or just come into the IRC channel and talk about it any time.
Hope to hear back from some of you soon, or see you in the IRC channel meeting on February 12th at 9pm.
