Yeah...I like the idea of specifically focusing on/inviting newbies. I think that was the idea of the Wgtn/Hutt ones being at Petone Community House, but for some of us the daytime public situation doesn't work well...so it takes commitment from the "oldies" who can do public places to keep going to meet the newbies.

At some point everyone has to get over their fear of small talk/meeting new people to be involved...that's how the oldies got to seem so familiar with one another...we met new people and got to know them over a period of time.

Hi!

Most of us didn't 'know' each other before we got chatting online and started to go to nappichinos.

I am really shy and forced myself to go...and so glad I did. :D

I do find the bigger groups overwelming. I like the idea of hiring that community centre near Janine's. It would only cost us all a few $$$ each and save the stress of it being in someone's home. (Yes....I do try and get down to some (not all) of the Auckland meetings to catch up in person)

Any WHANGAREI people interested in a nappichino ..put up your hand.

Would love to get regular meetings happening up here but at the moment no one seems interested except for a few of us who are pretty spread out.
I'm 15 minutes out of town and Katrina is in Dargaville....and Jailee. Will have to wait until next year now as we are all expecting babies :-).

cheers

I am still yet to go to one. I do find going along to someones house (or gathering in general) where everybody seems to know each other so well rather nerve racking. Even though I you know you are all so very friendly :)


Oh you should come to mine this Friday!! :wink: We are all very friendly and there may not be too many people coming, so relatively quiet! :D


I really should give it a go, shouldn't I? :smt045

Would you mind PMing me the details? Please.... :)

LOL! :lol:

I actually really like meeting new people and to be different prefer a home setting rather than a public setting. :D I promise, if I'm ever making my way into Wgtn some time I will try and tie it with a nappicino. Of course, anyone who's up/down MY way is more than welcome to pop in. :D

That way we'd get some info, and also easily meet a few of the regulars so a normal nappicino wouldn't seem so scary!
Just a thought :)


I can't speak for all other TNN demonnstrators, but I am most happy (and do) to meet up either at my place, newbie's place or somewhere neutral like a park if newbies want a one-on-one consult.
