I think that some dates are going to have to be thrown out, narrowed down along with a location and then people may start responding.
I proposed one long ago and got not a peep. I don't think Boiseans in general are the meetup type. I can't put my finger on it. Is it our conservative nature? Too lazy? City too spread out? For example, I'd go to the Mac user group meetings more often but it's way the heck out at Fuddruckers at Eagle and Ustick. Just too far for me to drive. However, it seems most on this forum are from the greater downtown area.
What we need is a sponsor who'll kick in some free Pizza or beer or whatever. I think warmer weather would help, many seem to hibernate during the cold months.
It's still 3 months off but how about the Greek Food Festival. Easy to bicycle to for many, easy access off The Connector's Fairview exit with decent parking within 2 or 3 blocks, just grab a table and put a big SSP sign on it. They serve beer and wine but under 21 are allowed no problem. There's also a Quinn's Pond cleanup on the Saturday morning of the Greek Food Festival in conjunction with the Boise River Volunteers. Usually get 20 or so to show up and BRV brings a bunch of catarafts.
