Please note the differences between Gathering and Meetup events are as follows:
GATHERINGS Structured event for 20++ participants with a planned agenda of activities, such as trivia quiz, lucky draws, screenings, tutorials, etc. Normally held at a public venue such as restaurant. RSVPs are essential, preferably as early as possible. A small contribution may apply.
MEETUPS Informal meeting without any pre-planned agenda, typically for 10 or less participants. May be held at public or private venues. Whilst RVSPs are not as essential as for gatherings, the meetup organisor or host would appreciate indicative numbers in advance.
For BOTH Gatherings and Meetings, please endeavour to RSVP your attendance as early as possible to assist the organisors in planning for the event. RSVP in following the event instructions given, normally by posting under the MySciFiFan forum event thread, IM the admin, voting in the MySciFiFan yahoogroups poll, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or the organisor directly. You are advised to also leave your contact number in order to receive any last minute event updates.
just a thought, since both me and Medic, though i'm sure she's a little more capable of getting over there, and that this could be useful to us in the future, but, my thought is that this shouldn't be taken lightly of those of you that can make it to whatever you decide to choose on. whether it be gatherings or meetings, i hope that you have fun.
In a hundred years, does it matter that there are Nites there to protect you? It sure does.
