I know it is short notice - but how about getting together for an early dinner tonight in Paia at Flatbread pizza at 6:00?

When: Saturday, October 3rd: 6:00 PM
Where: FlatBread Pizza, Paia

Call or email me if you want to join and I will reserve a table.

Ps. Michiko and I will be with our little girl Harmony (3 years old) so bring family if you want.

Sounds like maybe a meeting today in Paia, but I don't see where or when. Anyone know?

Hi Folks, Saturdays are going to be tough for me to make. Are we meeting up today? I've got a conflict with my wife volunteering at the nursing station at the Maui Fair.

Well, I can't *walk* to Paia like the other Doug, but I'd be happy to make the drive to meet up with folks, either for lunch or an after-work get together

I am good for lunch in Paia.
Comment by Doug Hagan on September 27, 2009 at 9:25pm
Lunch in Paia sounds great, that way I can walk! Maui Lani sounds good as well. Folks, thanks for setting this up. I'm all for after COB PT hours.

Hi Ben, Les, and Keith,

Yes, Les, we had about 8 people show at Makawao Sushi on Wed, July 15 at 4. Then my life went nuts for a while (shoulder surgery, family reunion, etc.)

From past experience, most people liked to come after work and after mainland biz hours.

I probably wouldn't make it on Saturdays. Too much (fun) going on.

Restaurants are nice because we don't have to bring food, fix food, etc. The Dunes at Maui Lani is central. It's usually quiet pau hana. 4 or so.
Makawao Sushi is convenient for me and upcountry folks.
Lunch in Paia sounds great. Flatbread's meeting room?

Families? That's a twist.

That said, I'm up for whatever works!

Hi Folks -

( Les - great timing. I was actually going to post about getting together as well. Looks like last post on this was in July..?)

Just joined. Just arrived. Would love to get a group together. Perhaps somewhere that is centrally located. From past strings - looks like weekends would work for better for some people.

May I suggest that we try to get a an event together for:

Date: Saturday, October 3rd
Time: 4:00 - 5:30 PM
Location: Central. TBD. Maybe Kahului or Wailuku

Is there anyone in Central, Paia, North Kihei etc that would be wiling to host this at their house? Sometimes hosting at a home is more personable and more people show up. If people have kids - sometimes better as well so that they can bring along. Social event and networking events seem to work great in Silicon Valley.

We just moved here and are currently staying in Lahaina at Aina Nalu. Happy to host here (great pool area and meeting area) but might be far for some folks up country. I have an offer in on a house in Wailuki - if we get it my wife and I would be happy to host monthly in future.

We will commit to bring 5 people to next event.

Keith and Michiko Powers

Lynn, did you get many folks come? Any to RSVP? Should we try again? There are a lot more groups besides here, LinkedIn, IEEE, but we don't all seem to come out.

IEEE has had two sponsored events that got about 20 people out. I'd be up for a once a month event just about anywhere on the island, and/or a weekly event on the North Shore.
Comment by Lynn Rasmussen on July 13, 2009 at 11:22pm
I don't mean to compete with anyone's plans but for years we had a weekly tech group meeting on the North Shore. We have some new interest so David Fisher and I are resurrecting it.
Wednesday, July 15, at 4 p.m., Makawao Sushi.
We might try meeting at the Dunes next week, depending on who's interested.
