    Where: At the DeYoung Cafe, San Francisco
    When: Friday, 18January 1600PST
    Who: Anybody who wants to have input on the next meetup.
    Extra: The first four RJ'rs who come to the meeting get a free entry to the museum for the evening.

    Now sit down and hold onto your chair because I'm about to tell you all "just how it is". Forgive me if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I'm in a crabby mood right now.

    Roguewave and I saw lots of great ideas on the feedback from and from a recent thread. Wonderful. Now let's see who's serious about putting some sweat-equity into co-organizing an event. Real community is about real commitment. And, the more co-organizers we have the less of a burden it is on any one person to pull off. Roguewave and I worked our asses off to pull off the Mission Bowl event and overall it looked like it was a lot of fun for most folks there.

    I say it looked like a lot of fun because for me, I was running around sweating my ass off trying to make folks happy during the event. Even still, some of the comments which came back were highly critical, less than appreciative, and down right ungrateful.

    We can put on an event, but you've got to learn how to come out of your fucking shells, learn to say hello and hold a conversation on your own.

    We begin at 1600PST SHARP. If nobody else is there at that time, I'll assume that nobody has the interest in co-organizing an event at this time.

    You may let go of your chair now.

    We hope to see as many Northern California community minded Real Jocks in real life at the planning gathering. It would be nice to see your smiling faces and helpful hands. And, we can always do something as a group on Friday night that is social after the planning meeting has concluded.

    Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

    Aloha and Be Well!
    Alan

    Excellent! Whatever happens, we'll hang out again! It was good to meet you at Mission Bowl, and to yell above the noise at Dear Mom.

    Live across the Bay and still at work, but I wish you well! I promise I can carry on a conversation. ;)

    ETA: I'm new to RJ but know organizing is a PITA, so I appreciate the effort

    The last attempt in NYC was a bust. Hope yours is more successful!
