EOS meet ups and learning - What do you think?
Friday, October 29, 2010 @ 11:07 AM

So here's the conversation between Justin and Maria de Castro....

Maria:  "Hey Justin, haven't seen you in a while, let's meet for coffee at Alcaidesa".

Justin:   "Great, see you there tomorrow."

The next day....

Justin:  "Blah, blah, blah, I am thinking of kicking off the EOS meet ups again.  They were getting increasingly popular and people were enjoying meeting others.  I think you came along to a couple of them."

Maria:  "Yes, they were good.  Lots turned up to the last one you did.  I was there."

Justin:  "I remember the first one, only four of us turned up!  But at the last one there were over 100."

Maria:  "What about if we have a session too where people can ask questions about a specific topic?"

Justin:  "I like it.  Maybe you could do a short talk on on a subject, such as communities, and then people can ask you questions?"

Maria:  "I'm happy to do that.  You know I'm always happy to share information."

Justin:  "I know...that's why I asked.  Good opportunity for people to meet others and learn a little if they want to.  And seeing as we're at this golf club, why don't we do something here?"

Maria:  "I know the manager here.  Let's call Juan Alberto over to chat."

Several minutes later....

Juan Alberto:  "Sounds great to me.  I am happy to give you clubs and balls so that you can all play around on the putting green for free.  Hopefully people will buy some drinks!"

Justin:  "That's a great idea and I'm sure you'll sell plenty of drinks!  Fun, learn and socialise.  Sounds good to."

Maria:  "Do you think people will be interested in this?"

Justin:  "I have no idea.  Let's find out what people think.  It's a free afternoon out where people can meet others and learn some important information about rights and law in Spain and have a bit of fun playing on the putting green.  I'll be there!"


So, what do you think?  We would have to do it locally at first but we can arrange this in different places if the interest is there?

Feedback appreciated please!!

If you do it I'll be there. We're new on the coast and it would be great to meet some new people.

Good idea. It would enable us to meet new people. There are several people that post from Calahonda (where we live) but we have never meet them.
It would also give us an opportunity to get answers to some questions we have that are easy to put in writing.

We shall be moving to live in Spain around January/February 2011, in the Fuengirola area, and if this is started again, we would definitely attend some meets.

I would love to come, but am not sure if I am eligible as I live in Gibraltar? I would like to make some new friends :)

Good idea! Just tell me when and if we are in residence, we're in.

Great - lets hope they are polular enough to move out of the Costa del Sol. Would love to attend if you can organise one in the Torrevieja or Los Alcazares (Mar Menor) area.

I agree with Bugs as we also reside part of the year in the Torrevieja/Los Altos region. Sounds like a great idea and a good way to meet other EOS members.

We are in Aguilas, Murcia. Think it's a great idea and we have a community here who would be interested.

Sorry to be communicating to you this way but I cannot see any other way. Just a couple of ideas:-
1) on the blogs why don't you have the messages dated so that the latest message puts that blog top of "tree" this way the most popular blog is uppermost & beats having to sift through the damned advertisements?
2) I am unaware where you reside but see above that you considered having meet ups, this is now being discussed on certain blogs of members around the Malaga Province & Axarquia. We have not entered this on the forums due to some abuse we encounter.
Best wishes
ps I hope this message reaches you.
