Stage 32 Meetups : Meet Up in South Florida by Ingrid Webster

Ingrid Webster

Meet Up in South Florida

Palm Beach County: anyone interested in a networking event for Stage 32 members?

Laurie Ashbourne

Hi Ingrid - connect with Deborah Weed on here. She had started this process for the area, not sure how much feedback she got but I know she got some. I met up with her a couple of weeks ago in Palm Beach Gardens. I live in Jensen Beach but am down there often. I'm pretty slammed for the next 2 months on a handful of projects but I'd definitely like to be in the loop if a meet up comes about.

Ingrid Webster

Hi Laurie - Thank you for your suggestion! Surely I will do that and let you know. I'm definitely planning on a get-together soon. Even if there are only a few people, it can always grow from there.

David Victor

I'd be interested. I'm in Deerfield Beach (Broward) but I can access the lower half of Palm Beach County pretty easily. Please keep me informed.

Ingrid Webster

That's great, David! I'll definitely keep you posted. Just tossing some ideas around concerning time and location, and there should be a first meeting soon.

Bill Millstein

I''d like to know more.

Ingrid Webster

Thank you, Bill! I'll post when and where on this thread.

Julie Kendall

Hi! Sounds interesting. I'm in Ft lauderdale. Let me know if you decide to do a meet up

Ingrid Webster

Awesome - it's nice to meet you, Julie! Sure will do.

Aileen Michelle

I'm interested but in miami

Ingrid Webster

Hi Aileen, perhaps you could join if we were to meet in Southern Palm Beach County?

Paul Levine

Id be interested. Tell me more...

Beverly Gandara

Hi all. I will be moving to the Palm Beach area within the next year, look forward to meeting other Stage 32 members and would appreciate more information. Thank you.

Ingrid Webster

Here's the scoop: the first meeting is going to be Wednesday, 3/26/14, at 6:00 pm. You will get free appetizers and Happy Hour drink prices. Still confirming a location, and you should be able to find out in the next couple of days. My thoughts are to have monthly meetings. Any input?

Bill Millstein

Location, location, location... Mightbe my problem,,,

Ingrid Webster

Bill, as I'm confirming the location for the first meeting, it more than likely is not very far from where you are. Sure hope that it is where you can get to easily. Cheers!

David Victor

Regardless of the location, 6 o'clock is tough to make, for those of us with full time jobs. It's a challenge to get to anything before 7. I realize that those "in the biz" are more flexible, but those of us who have to work full time are not free during weekdays.

Ingrid Webster

Good point, David. For that reason, there is no cut-off time for these meetups, and anybody who can make it at any point during the meeting is surely more than welcomed. I hope that this will accommodate people with a work schedule.

Emanuel F. Camacho, Pmp

I'm split between LA, NY, and Miami. I was up in the PSL area for Digital Domain (but that went the way of the dodo) I am in Miami now and was considering starting up some meetups since joining the Miami Film Society, but I would love to participate in any meetups throughout WPB/FTL/MIA.

Ingrid Webster

Awesome, Emanuel. Looks like we're about to start a very nice group. Details to follow soon.

Ingrid Webster

Please note: First meeting will be on Wednesday, April 6 (That's one week after I originally planned). Still waiting for the owner of restaurant to confirm time and date. Will let everybody know as soon as it's available.

Emanuel F. Camacho, Pmp

That sounds great! Ingrid April 6th is a Monday.

Gabe Tullier

i'd be down

Virginia Alexander C.ht

I'm in!

Ingrid Webster

Emanuel, thanks for making me aware of the date, but we were both wrong ;-) (April 6 is a Sunday) The correct date for the meeting is April 2. I'm a Blonde - I know, but hey - I'm a nice person :-)

Julie Kendall

I'm confused. Where and when is the meeting? Ty so much!

Paul Levine

LETS DO IT!!!~

David Victor

Do we know where yet?

Ingrid Webster

Sorry for the delay. Had some issues with the first location, but we now have a definitive place and time. PLEASE NOTE: first meeting will be on THURSDAY, April 3, from 6:00pm til ? The meeting is at Atlantis Grill & Bar, in Atlantis, FL. Easily accessible from I-95 and plenty of parking. Happy hour drinks until 7:00 and free appetizers for our group. For directions, see their website: http://www.atlantisgrillandbar.com/Location.html The plan is to have meetings every first Thursday of the month. Looking forward to meet everybody and get to know you better!

Ingrid Webster

Emily Walker - we'll be happy to send you pictures of the meeting. May I grab the Stage 32 logo from your site and print it?

Laurie Ashbourne

I have a previous engagement at 6 in Jupiter -- have fun, maybe next time.

Ingrid Webster

Thank You, Laurie! Sorry I had to switch dates, but it'll be always first Thursdays from now on - that way everybody can plan ahead. I hope you can join next time.

Julie Kendall

Hi! Where is Atlantis???

Ingrid Webster

HI Julie - Atlantis is on Congress Avenue, South of Lake Worth. The Atlantis Grill & Bar is on the NW corner of Congress Ave. and Lantana Road.

Bill Millstein

It's a posibility.

Gabe Tullier

bummer... thursday nights are my worst nights... y'all have a great time... i hope to meet you guys sometime. I've got projects in need of some actors so, i'll post that stuff here.

Ingrid Webster

Gabe - wish I could have had it on Wednesdays. We'll see what the future may bring...

Chris Garcia

I'd be interested in networking..I'm in Miami area

Ingrid Webster

Hi Chris, I am aware that you are farther South, but if you can at all attend tonight, you would be a part of the first S. Florida meeting and very welcome.

Richard "RB" Botto

Have a terrific meeting tonight, guys!

Ingrid Webster

Thank You, Richard and Emily!

Chris Garcia

any idea when next meet up will be?

Ingrid Webster

Chris - probably not until fall, when the snow birds are back. But I'm always open for an impromptu lunch. Hope to meet you soon!
