Look forward to the Meetup place and time, but I to am in Victoria. Would not mind meeting in Victoria as well, coffee? Paul


You and I can set a time and place Paul and see who all else can come on first meet and see how the Meetup fits in later.

So I spoke too soon . Didn't realize that Meetup has a fee of 9.99 US for each month when you create a group. Min. commitment is for 6 months so a little reluctant to shell out the better part of $100 CDN at this point without knowing the response rate or true interest

That leave in my view two other options - an email list which I can do via gmail or Facebook . I know that are people reluctant to use Facebook but it has the advantage of allowing access to "outsiders" over an email list. How ever I am leaning toward a Google group - don't know if it is agnostic in terms of "non gmail addresses" but I think it probably is the least obtrusive approach . Let's face it anything that is no cost on the internet will have some trade-off but creating a google email address is pretty minimal in my view.
I will do a bit more research, like I should have done with meetup , :oops: and will post the results here later today
Always open to other suggestions or if someone else wants to take the lead.....

Thanks for checking it out Buzz.
In an earlier post someone also mentions Google groups.
I decided to go take a look, and a few easy clicks later... a Vancouver Island AUDIOPHILES group was born... on Google Groups.

Lets see how it works.

So I'm waiting for a call from Sound Hounds about my Sim Audio P5. When I head down for pick up it would be nice to meet some folks. Most likely on a Saturday.

As for as us all connecting... only a few joined the Google group. So it looks like this may not be the answer. So would this be a viable option?

Everyone pm's one person there contacts... ie. email, and or cell. That person emails contact list out to everyone. We can then email or text for meet ups.

As the group was just created a day or so ago - I would wait for a few days or a week before determining if the Google group is viable or not.
