Oxford is to become Europe... sadly.

I'm afraid to say that tomorrow is likely to see nobody attend the Oxford meet.

This will make it two times in a row that there will have been a cancelled meetup. And it's a real shame.

I do understand that people sometimes cannot attend meetups, and that's alright, but this seems to be a continuing pattern. I try very hard to get attendees.

Something for the meetup is going to have to change.

I have an idea to propose, which will be 'European webinar'. This, surprisingly, will be aimed at European users. I think the sea with this will make it more flexible and a lot more convenient for people. Also, I'm trying to extend the number of potential users.
I would like to start this next week, and maybe have this as a monthly occurring event.

Just an idea. Tell me your ideas or whether you like them!

Hey, regarding your Oxford meetings, you should try having them on weekends. It's hard to attend during the week. Especially if you're not from Oxford.

Cheers.

Weekends have been the hot topic lately. I am trying to work out how to get weekends meetups running. But in the meantime, I just want to start up a European webinar.

Do you use meetup.com for setting these up?

Thomas if it wasn't pure moons away and 4 PM on weekday I'd love to come to more.
I will happily attend any Euro Webinar, needs to be a strict door policy if they haven't got an EU passport not coming in.

@Kittsy... agreed! Bring in the Buzz Immigration Control Unit!

@Chris1... Are you willing to pay for flights? :P

@Nadthevlad... Meetup.com ended costing too much. I just pulled out of their system.

Follow the Boy Scouts. They meet on Mondays. That particular day is the least occupied at 6 or 7 PM for most people. Try weekends also, as MadRod suggested.

EuroBuzz needs a logo! Oh Thomas .... :-)

Meet in a pub -- we know Kittsy will dash over

Thomas, sorry to hear that your current meeting format is not working out.
Definitely signing up to a Euro meet up. Got my passport ready ;)

I am setting up a European online hangout this Thursday. I will be similar to a normal meetup, however just online. It's a great way to show your latest apps, gain support, provide help, or just have a nice chat!

Here's some more details:

I hope to see you there.

I think this is a great idea Thomas. I am bemused by the fact that you Brits don’t see yourselves as being European users but that’s another story ;-))

As per my previous post on your other thread on this subject, this coming week is Carnival here in “Europe” so Thursday evening is not going to be a good time. I will certainly look out for the next European meet up though so keep us posted!
