Using Meetup.com for regional get-togethers
FYI, the Meetup.com group/social network appears to be a perfect tool for organizing/publicizing local listening sessions/get-togethers for ML Club members and/or other audiophiles (other interests too). Our local Suncoast Audiophile Society (formerly the Tampa Bay Listening Society) just migrated to Meetup, and we're finding it incredibly useful. We just had our Feb meeting, with over 15 attendees, including THREE new members who discovered us via the Meetup.com listing. Of note, you can designate your group as PRIVATE, so names, addresses, and meeting details are NOT visible to the general public. There is a charge for using meetup ($12/mo) but they have introductory pricing of $36 for 6 months. That would be time enough to "test" your local interest for an audio club, and have members share the cost (Meetup offers integrated Paypal and Amazon payment options for member dues). I have no financial relationship with Meetup.com, but just wanted to pass this info along, as it may prove useful to ML Club members in other cities.
