Florida Drupal Group vs Florida Drupal Users Group

Hi Everyone,

I would like to propose using Florida Drupal Group on our swag instead of Florida Drupal Users' Group.

The shorter name will help make it easier to create graphics and will also prevent the yearly discussion of the spelling (Users, Users', or User's).

What say you all?

Orlando Meetup: Yes or no?

The meetups as posted over on Meetup.com ( here http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-Drupal/ ) seem to have fizzled out. I admit that I've not been consistent in attending, but it seems a shame for it to die out.

If anyone is interested, I could work on arranging meeting space, probably at ScribbleSpace in West Orange: http://www.scribblespace.co/en . I have a membership there and work there 8 hours each week, and my membership includes meeting room space, which I'm happy to use for the group if anyone else is interested.
