Final Meetup Update
In the wake of getting kicked out of one group, I began to look at the other groups I belonged to on Meetup… all three of them. In looking them over, I realized that not one event they posted ever happened on a day I was available. Well, there was a couple of Texas Hold’em tournaments on Sundays, but I don’t do well in tournaments, and think Texas Hold’em should only be played at a casino… opposite Phil Hellmuth and Doyle Brunson. With a bit of reluctance, I realized that there was no place for me on any of those groups, so I dropped out of them as well (for the record, only one seemed to actually care).
Which got me thinking some more. I had looked at other Meetup groups before, and the same thing happened. All their events were on days when I could not participate. Extremely few Sunday events, and absolutely no Monday events. In realizing that there were no events that I could participate in, I began to wonder if there really was a place for me on Meetup.
I did not wonder that long. I deleted my Meetup account.
