I think that having two meetings per month would mean that we would
get about half as many people in each meeting. I personally am not too
keen on going to biweekly meetings, so I'd just go to every other
one. I'd hate to get essentially two groups: kcmo.pm.org and
kcsouthland.pm.org. That's a bad scenerio.

I would attend monthly meetings if we alternated between KCMO and
suburbia each month or even just moved them to Overland Park for a
while. I don't mind driving out to JCCC or wherever for
meetings. Maybe it's time we Missourians pay our dues like the
SprintLand folks have been doing for ~5 years.

What about someplace like Barley's Brewhouse at about 119 and Quivera?
Free WiFi, beer on tap, tolerable barfood, and surely wouldn't mind if
we scooted a few tables together?

I'll try to be more diligent about indicating anticipated discussion
topics. I recall that when you encouraged book reviews, weekly
puzzles, and stuff like that the attendance was higher and the
discussion stayed more centered around perl.

Anyone know any applicable college mailing lists to occasionally
announce to? I think that David is our official college contact or


PS - I will not drive to Lima for meetings!
