Organisers needed for weekly meetings in February 2013 !!! :D
Posted February 2nd, 2013 - 3:04 pm by from Offenbach am Main, Germany (Permalink)
Hallo Happy People ! We need some enthusiastic guys to organize few traditional CS weekly meetings !


Thursday, February 7th [organiser needed] CHANGE !?
Wednesday, February 13th [organiser needed] CHANGE !?
Thursday, February 21th [organiser needed]
Wednesday, February 27th [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).

Hi,

I wouldn't like to be offensive, but please let me decide by my own when I would like to organize a weekly meeting. I don't feel like being ready for inviting 30+ people and also the table wasn't reserved for so many. And I still had 11 euro to pay after unpaid drinks however I knew most of the attendants.

So I'll let you know when I'll feel clever enough to organize a big event like that. :)

Thanks,
Niki

Thanks for creating the post! Unfortunately Tuesday is not the best day for me since I have german lesson in the evening, but for Niki's Anniversary I will join for a couple of drinks after class!

Hmm...as soon as I have really moved in in Frankfurt I'm gonna organize weekly meetings too. But have to agree with Stelios, Tuesday isn't a good day for me too. Loved the Thursday/Wednesday alteration.
