[Wellington-pm] Wellington Perl Mongers 2017

Yes, I'd like to continue with the monthly technical meetings.

I can generally make it, but when I can't, it's usually because 
something has arisen at the last minute - so, to me, changing the day 
probably would not change my attendance level.

I will volunteer to do another Perl 6 talk.

I don't think it's anything you're doing or not doing that would be 
putting people off. I'm decidedly unsocial, and have always found the 
group, and especially you, to be quite welcoming.

Lightning talks: yes please!
