[Stargate] Moving Stargate Populace

Well I for one attend every meeting unless an emergency comes up and that very rarely happens.  I can also tell you that Dietrich is there every populace.  

I have to agree that an outdoor location is not a good idea even during the day in this part of the world.  Between weather and bugs I don't think we would be very happy for very long.  And let's not forget the fact that we'd have to change meetings when we have events that we're traveling to.  I know I don't want to come back from Dallas on Sunday morning and have to rush to a meeting.  

How many people attend?  Well, in general I think we have around 20 or more for every meeting.  In a Barony of how many active?  Well that I can't answer.  But I think most people would have less problems going to a meeting on a weeknight than on a weekend.  

Just my 2 cents.

  Lisabetta brought up a good point about would moving the populace meeting increase the attendance and the social interaction?   

  Step back the suggestion of location and think about the goal.  How many people attend 
  the meetings on Monday at Ryans?    How many people are not attending because of
  date or location?   And if a change of venue and/or time, who would we likely lose and 
  who would we gain?     

  There are a couple people that have said they could not attend the meeting on Sunday, 
  are you attending the meetings now?    I know that because of my job and the travel I
  do for that job I am seldom able to attend on a weeknight.  All the same, I am not sure 
  and outdoor location in this part of the world would be predictable and consistant enough 
  to have a regular meeting.  Between the rain, cold, heat and bugs...    

  I would love to see a more interaction in the barony.   A more social and more heavily 
  attended populace meeting is a good step.     

  And now the shameless plug:   Remember and spread the word,  On February 11 at
  the home of Francois and Perronnelle we are hosting a REVEL!   This is gathering and
  party for all our fellows in the Barony and even if it is not an official SCA event Garb is 
  suggested.   Feel free to show up from 8pm onwards.  


  ps:  I do find it amuzing that even our mailing lists are split in twain, must be something
  about Two Towers....
