    Greater KC area. Pro-active activism.

    Just a thought for people within the Kansas City area (Kansas side too). I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a monthy or bi-monthly get together. Do you guys think we would have enough people to attend to make it a regular thing? If we met at a starbucks at the plaza or some other high traffic area for community activism reasons. I've seen a couple other groups on here and other carry forums that do similar things to integrate the community and to be seen on a regular basis. I'm just unsure if we would have the commitment or participation to do so. This is still just a thought in process for me, so what do you guys think? Location ideas, monthly date ideas, etc.

    I would be up for it most times. I have a couple children envolved in Special Olympics so sometimes it's hard for me to get away. Maybe start out with once a month and if all goes well we can discuss maybe bi-weekly? Just my 2cents.

    I agree, monthly just to see if people would actually turn out, but bi-weekly people may be able to come that couldn't on the other day. However, seeing as we have 33 views and only 1 other response I'm not sure how popular the idea is.

    Just pick a time and a place that is receptive to your OC. Post it here and let all that want to come do so. Even if no one shows. Enjoy your coffee hang out and reed the paper for an hour and go about your day. It's really a no loose situation. That is what I did and here is how it went.

    Cool, so how about 4:00/4:30, first saturdays?(3 would be a bit too early for me) If that is good with everyone then,

    Starbucks Coffee on the plaza in KC on the 6th at 4:00, we'll see how it turns out and if we can't make a regular thing out of it.

    As for me I think I could make once a month even though the holidays and g-kids b-days are coming up. Would sure try and make it if possible. Little crazy in Nov and Dec but we'll see how it goes.

    They have all sorts of drinks there, if you like coffee anything on the espresso menu is pretty good. They also have all sorts of tea and a few smoothies. I like the white chocolate mocha or vanilla latte personally.
