Hi all

I'm still interested in this as well. I think we should try and set a day at least like second thrusday of the month at 4 pm and see who or what comes of it.

I know this won't suit everyone but I think it's the only way to get started.

Lets see how many can make it and in the week leading up to it work out where to go.

Regards

Tim Giles

Hi Tim,

In our experience, this is the best way to kick things off.

We've generally observed that people become much more likely to put their hands up to participate once a time and place has been nominated - even if their initial comments are that they'd prefer a different time.

As another tip for you, we've also noticed that groups who meet within school hours are the ones who tend to get the most participants (although we do have a couple of regular groups going who meet early in the morning).

Once someone has nominated a time, we'll give the meet-up group a plug on Facebook and Twitter for you.

Hope you meet some fantastic people,
Jayne

Thanks, Jayne. Good point re school hours.

Ok, I will set a date and see who shows up: 1st Thursday of the month at 12:30pm. That means the first meetup will be on 5th July.

How about Ernie Brown's, they do light lunches - paninis etc, and are central just down from Westfield: www.erniebrowns.com.au‎

If the time doesn't suit people we can change it for the following month.

Jayne, can you help us get the word out? I don't want to have lunch by myself ;-)

Hi all

I am keen and Thursday lunch will work as well as anything else - however I can't make the first one as it is in school holidays. I have out August in my diary already.

We had a lovely lunch today at our first Geelong meetup. There were 4 of us today and I know at least 3 others have expressed interest but couldn't make it today.

For now we will keep the time and place the same until we have figured out what suits everyone best.

So, the next Geelong meetup will be on Thursday, 2nd August, at 12:30pm at Ernie Browns Cafe, 60 Brougham Street. Please pop in and say hi!
