Organisers needed for weekly meetings in January 2013!!! :)
Posted December 30th, 2012 - 3:51 pm by from Frankfurt am Main, Germany (Permalink)
Hello fellow csers and happy holidays to everyone!

Fortunately or unfortunately the world wasn't destroyed and 2012 is about to say goodbye! I hope you had a great year and I wish the one coming will be even better! :)

So, how about continuing our weekly meetings in 2013?

P.S. Probably it will be quite difficult to organise a meeting on 2nd of January (according to schedule), so if someone would like to do it on the 3rd or 4th for sure it wouldn't be a problem! :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY!!! :D :D :D

Wednesday, January 2nd [organiser needed]
Thursday, January 10th [organiser needed]
Wednesday, January 16th [organiser needed]
Thursday, January 24th [organiser needed]
Wednesday, January 30th [organiser needed]

Here are the few steps (I added an optional sub-step as well - 3b) needed to organize it (thanks Franz, Daniela, Diego):

For the CS members who are tempted to organize a weekly meeting and have no experience in organizing it yet:

1. Look for a location. Ask the crew, whether it's available on the date. We need a place for about 30-40 people, but take care, the no. isn't stable (see 6.).

2. Create an event in CS (Community - Create Event). The event should be well described (with link to a map), because we want joining travelers and newbies too.

3. The weekend before the date: Post in the Frankfurt Group the date (link to the event) to promote your event.

3b.(optional) You can also post in the facebook cs group (check here) to attract more people.

4. Follow the no. of registered attendees. You need the trend. If you haven't enough attendees it would be nice if motivate more by repeating to post in the Frankfurt group.

5. A day before the event you phone the location and tell them the no of registered people. Sometimes they forget the event.

6. People register till going to the event. That's why you can only assess the no. of attendees in the late afternoon before (= about no. of registered people + 20%). And then update the crew around 6 o'clock of the event evening. And hope your assessment is right.

7. You might want to reserve two tables. One for 15 people at 20:00 and another for 15 people at 21:30. (Only a few people arrive in time and the restaurant / pub might give away reserved tables to others if no one shows up by that time.)

The organizer is only responsible for the reservation and motivation, not for the bill (Point that out to the pub crew as well).
