Monthly CS meeting?
Posted May 25th, 2012 - 6:48 am by from Caen, France (Permalink)
Hi everyone!

I was wondering who would be interested in having a monthly (or even more frequently) CS meeting? It could be organized at someone's place or at a cafe for example.

I come from Caen, a town the size of Tauranga/Mount Maunganui in France and there they have a monthly meeting to welome new people settling in the area. It is a great way to meet new people, organize activites etc. I see that this CS group is a bit quiet but I'm sure people are looking to get together!

My girlfriend and me moved to Tauranga a few months ago. We had backpackers friends but they are all moving on with their trips so we're looking to meet people who are settled here.

See you :)

Sounds like a good idea but the bay of plenty is a big place a return trip to Tauranga would be 150 km for me so I will will not be joining you

I love the idea as I will be moving to Tauranga in 3 weeks and it will be a great way for me to get to know people!

Maybe a meeting from June 20th :)

a meeting sounds really good :)
I am living and working in Rotorua, so a catch up in Tauranga is also a nice way to spend some time somewhere else, go hiking on Mt Maunganui and spend time on the beach. ;)

I am definetely in for it if it is on a weekend.

Hey guys,

Sorry for not replying sooner, I've been busy with work lately :P
Barbara and I were thinking about getting together with whoever is keen this coming weekend. We would like to organize something more than just drinks at a cafe.
Do you have any ideas? Maybe a barbecue somewhere?
But unfortunately because of our crazy schedules we can only make it on Sunday or Monday...
We´d love to hear from you and your ideas so we can plan something fun :)
See you soon! (hopefully!)
Francois & BaRbI

Hey guys,
We're hosting a pizza + movie night at our place next Sunday.
It's all on Meetup, which we find more convenient to organize events. See my message on the forum:
See you soon ;)
