i learned this on the first apéro.
Oh, I totally agree, I'm lucky with the fact that I have a "relatively" flexible schedule (if g/f lets me). The thing is that you're NEVER going to be able to accommodate everyone's schedules no matter how far in advance you put it. The trick is to set a place, and set up a time that is reasonably far ahead that people will be able fit it into their schedules.

if that one sounds good to people, maybe you should start a different thread to discuss it, so people will be able to find the info easily.

oh, i completely agree, absolutely. i just meant that 2 weeks isn't "reasonably far ahead" for a lot of people. i don't think we need 6 months notice for something this informal though, you're right. and don't forget, you can always have another one, in six months ! (which gives you 5 months to slack off, before you start planning it.)

Just to put that in a perspective we can all understand... that is the equivalent of Alaska eating 40 Switzerland's!

Well the Kindle and 505 could be part of her bag 'o spy toys. She just scans documents and loads them on to her ereaders. No one would be the wiser.

It's either that, or she's a fugitive. That's why she's always on the move.

No ... not really. Alaska is big ... but there are only ... what .... about 12 people living there?? I'm certain they could schedule a meet in one place that would be good for all.
