This is a repost of the Google Groups announcement.
The hunt is on! We've crossed off some of the more
expensive options already. But we have a few contenders in the
running. Here's the our wiki page with the contenders with links back
to their discussion threads:
So here's how we're going to make a decision.. Starting next meeting,
a quorum of our members will rank all the scouted options from most
preferable to least preferable. Results will be tallied to determine
the most preferred location. At that point, we have a brief discussion
about *only* the top pick. Whomever shows up, members and non-members,
can advocate for it or against it. Then members will follow that with
a vote to either "Pull the trigger on this location" OR "Pass until
next meeting" We will do this at every meeting henceforth, rinse and
repeat, until we get a space.
If you have a space in mind, it's important to get it scouted before
the next meeting. No one can know if a decision will be reached next
meeting or not. Every meeting is a big meeting from now on... until we
are meeting at our new location!
My sincerest gratitude and appreciation goes out to everyone who has
contributed financially and otherwise. Progress doesn't happen unless
people make it happen. And at every step you all have made it happen!
We'll have a space soon! And we're just getting started...
