Okay, I have been thinking about the "activity meetings" (for lack of a better term) a lot today. I think this is a great idea and one that would be open/fun for ALL ages. It would be great to make at least one family-oriented, like craft week. Personally, i think that having something each weekend would be vary ambitious. I think that having the book club for one weekend and one weekend for something else would be doable. 1st we need the space: it shouldn't be that difficult to get the conference/community rooms at various bookmans and libraries across the city. This could be done as far in advance as these facilities will allow us. I looked into parks&rec today online and it could be from $50-100 (refundable deposit + per hour fee + room setup fee). Cat said it would be a $250 deposit on her clubhouse. So I think that our only options so far are Bookmans and the Libraries. 2nd we need to advertise it: We could book these rooms for the date/time we designate, as far in advance as possible and then write up a schedule with the information for the website. I looked on tucsoneventcalendar and it doesn't look like there is any cost for posting events on their site. This site is straight from the tucson citizen and has a lot of events regularly posted. I don't know what the traffic is for the site. 3rd we need to have people for the event: We would need volunteers for each event. Cat really wants the book club to get going so maybe she would agree to do this once a month. How many people would be willing to lead a group activity meeting once in a while? 4th how do we fund it: to me this is the major sticking point. would this be something the group as a whole would be willing to fund? like the volunteers submit to the group the costs and we all form a kitty for this or does the volunteer along with their time, agree to foot the cost as well? keep in mind this could get pricey. drinks are pretty much a must for anything over an hour, food is optional, paper, pens/markers, etc.
