For our past meetings we've tried to plan things a month or more in advance. It's difficult with this group to do things on short notice.
As we have the holidays approaching many of us are quite busy as well. In my case I have lots of extra time off, but as my work quota remains the same I've got to bust some butt in the weeks at the beginning of Nov and Dec. In addition there are a lot of people who will be out of town or on break from school.
At this point I would suggest that we discuss plans for a January meet, and possibly smaller local plant swaps in the meantime.
Btw, we really should have this conversation over on the SCAPE board - that's what it's there for. SCAPE :: Index for those who aren't yet familiar.
Anyone up for a mini-meet at maybe All About Fish or somewhere sometime before the year ends? Just as Kirt requested, we'd need to give him a week's notice. =)
And speaking of which, what would be a good weekend in January for SCAPE meet with everyone? And where would we want to hold it? Just trying to get the ball rolling and maybe establish a consistent meeting schedule.
January is generally slow for me, so any weekend in January is fine. I'd be interested in a plant swap, but mostly for purchasing. =D All about fish sounds good. It's a nice store, but i think it may be a bit far for the san diego guys.
