    Default Online club meets or shows

    As it's looking like this awful pandemic will rage for quite some time, I was hoping that more groups would be keen - if they have the time and energy - to go live online. If nothing else, to maintain a sense of community in a time of crisis, small though this community may be.

    Anyway, if this is happening in various places, where are the invites? There's been some talk of this recently, but even the Rome virtual show seems to have fizzled out. At least I've not had an invite for quite some time (which may mean something I guess, but would rather hope it didn't).

    Having other groups online, even with limited invitational spaces available, would represent a great opportunity for those of us who are remote to interact directly with those of whom we often only have names. Personally I would love to have to chance to chat in real time with some of the experts. Even if it's just to say hi and thanks!

    Maybe the online idea is dead in the water? Does anyone know more?

    Email has been sent via your website, Mark, and I think the meeting will be about 1pm in my local timezone. So, anticipating a later lunch, and barring any unexpected work deadlines, I should be able to watch, listen and learn! Thanks.

    Hmm, don't know what happened there. Sent an email for an invite and heard absolutely nothing back.

    I did receive an invitation after emailing. Perhaps the response went in a spam folder?

    I was looking forward to meeting you, David.

    Thank you, I was looking forward to meeting new people too. I sent an email via their website - but it's possible I did something wrong - and I also notified Mark by PM on here. Also, there may be a number limit I guess.

    Perhaps the next one?

    David, I was there last night, but coming into the meeting late, and I did ask about who joined from FPGeeks, only Guy was there.

    Mark is very good at responding, so I'd check your spam folder just to make sure that you don't miss his response.

    And since I have your email, I'll connect you directly to Mark via email.

    Nice to see you yesterday, I was in the meeting but I came online late, so I missed the fact that you're actually guyy

    But I enjoy your description of your focus on German piston fillers.

    Thanks, Will. Just saw your email connecting me. Checked the spam folder but nothing there. It's quite possible that my request never got through due to something I did incorrectly.

    Tim, what's the local time that the Ohio pen meet uses? I have to account for a lot of time-zones! And thanks for the invite too!
