    I’m no longer leaving the country in June so any weekend of June works for me.

    I haven’t forgotten this and am keen to go ahead but I’ve been away every weekend for the past month or so. I’m a bit clearer coming up so will talk to Jennifer and see what date works.

    So I’m aiming for a get together July 15th or 16th, how does that sit with people?

    That’s basically the first weekend we’ve got free.

    16th works better for me but if 15th is better for everyone else then hopefully OldBeer can give me a debrief.

    Hi,
    Both days are fine for me, as the constellation of the stars suggest now.

    We will need to work out an agenda, so we can be “productive” and not just talking.
    Correct me if I am wrong or do not hesitate to add a topic.

    The below questions and points are really for an agenda only. I would not be comfortable to start discuss money or technical details here.

    As I know Eddieb cannot keep the site running anymore for a good reason and someone or a group need to take it over.
    1) Technical side
    a) Where it is hosted
    b) what technology, engine is running it, how much technical knowledge needed to keep it running?
    c) DNS provider, email and such technicalities.
    d) How much work does the site requires to keep it running
    2) Finances
    a) How much does it cost to keep the site running
    b) How do we want to raise this money (advertisement, donation, corporate sponsorship, put together by us, anything else…)
    3) Is there any need or wish to change anything? I am happy with the site as it is now, but maybe others not.
    a) New design?
    b) New structure?
    c) If there is a demand or need for a change, still stick to forums, transform it into a blog or a more static website, moving to social media sites? Or a mix of all these?

    A lot to think about until our meeting…
    If you reply to this post, I will get an email notification, as I am not checking the site daily.

    Eddie…would be good to pick a day and then put a link on the Facebook page, so people can plan?

    Hi,

    Yeah, sorry. Been distracted by organising moving house this weekend.

    Sunday 16th it is, Midday.

    Which place is best to go to? I found the Bay View Hotel and the Stray Dog Cafe that look good in the area, any specific recommendations?

    Either one looks good, I think we should give them a call and se if they have a room where we can have a quiet conversation away from the main traffic.

    What do you think?

    I’ve been to a meeting at the pub…assume that’s the BayView Hotel….they had several rooms that were very private. We started off in one then migrated to a bigger one when more people turned up. To the right when you go in the front doors. Both a good distance from the bsr.

    Would be my recommendation, but I don’t know the other place.

    The Bayview Hotel it is then.

    Woohoo…let the road trip planning begin! Anyone else coming from North of the Bridge? If you haven’t done it before the coast road through Kawakawa Bay and Orere Point is nice…
    Meals at the pub are ok too.

    OK Clearly I have missed a few things. I will slot the 15th in and I can meet up on the way with southbound riders. I am in East Auckland.

    Would this be a good time to discuss things like behavior policy statements- noting I am all for a light hand on the tiller?
