Reviving TriadDUG

daniel_j's picture

Is there any interest in reviving this User Group? It looks like it's been dormant for almost two years (last meeting was shortly before I moved here). I'd be willing to co-facilitate if that's what it takes.

I think this is a great idea.

I think this is a great idea. I know there are people in HP that would be interested in this and would likely come. I would say getting started not to worry to much about having huge planned out sessions. Make the first few meetups just be drinks and discussions.

If you plan one for Wen the 26th this month I will be in town and attend :-)

Where would it be hosted?

Hey Daniel, I work with Matthew and he forwarded your post. I am interested but a lot of it depends on where (city) this would be hosted at.

I agree this is a great idea. It's a big enough area that it should be able to support a decent-sized group. Regarding where it'd be hosted, we tried to host it a few different places last time (GSO and Kernersville). I'd be fine with anywhere within a reasonable distance.

I seem to recall the group

I seem to recall the group used to meet at the Kernersville library. Did we need to make contact with someone at the library to make arrangements? Personally I'd rather meet over beers, but bars are not the quietest places even on a weeknight, and besides that would be uncomfortable for potential members who are teetotallers.

We would need to discuss also when it would be most convenient to meet up. I'm guessing weeknights work best, but I'm pretty flexible. I think we ought to shoot for meeting monthly.

Revival

Since Matt will be in town the 26th I'm game for that.
Kernersville, WS, HP or Greensboro all work for me.

Okay, Wednesday the 26th it

Okay, Wednesday the 26th it is. It would be fabulous if it could happen during the daytime but I don't know how other people feel about that, or what latitude you might have with regard to work. Any ideas where? Anybody's employer able to offer a conference room? Other ideas?

I'm interested

I'm interested -- though I go to Colfax on Wed. afternoons for therapeutic horseback riding sessions. I'd be available after that (about 4 p.m. or later), though.

I'd need a ride; I have a rare, fast-progressing form of multiple sclerosis; I had to give up driving in December.

If you want to try Kernersvillle - I would be happy to contact the library?

Looks like the group used to

Looks like the group used to meet at 6:30pm and go for a couple hours. @RayAdams23, can you go ahead and make arrangements with the library for that time slot?

Hey Ray, Thanks for the email

Hey Ray,
Thanks for the email and invitation. I would love to make it, but have an issue. My wife and I are down to 1 car right now, and she works Wednesday nights. Do you still live right up the road from me and maybe I could hitch a ride?

Great meeting and visiting

BDaggerhart's picture

Great meeting and visiting with everyone last night, I'm looking forward to more of these!

I would like to offer up doing a basic-entry-level "Starting up a drupal site checklist" type tutorial sometime. Probably not this next time, I'll be leaving for vacation the day after the meeting, so my time leading up till then will likely be occupied, but perhaps the April meeting?

Meeting place

Katrina B's picture

I, too, enjoyed the meeting last night. It was good to see familiar faces -- and new faces!

I'd gladly offer my living room as a meeting place (since most group members seem to be in the High Point area) -- except that while I have plenty of space and Wi-fi ... I have no chairs, no projector, and no screen (not even a blank wall on which an image could be projected). If someone would be willing to help turn my living room into a good meeting place, I'm open to that. If not, I hope you are able to find a place that meets all of your needs.
