Date of the first meeting!

So! While the votes are coming in and while the word is spreading, I’m thrilled to announce that the first ever DublinTwookClub meeting will take place on… ~~~drum roll!~~~ Tuesday the 21st of July at 7.30pm.

Now, as you can imagine, it’s going to be quite difficult to coordinate so many schedules, so we’re hoping to have a rolling membership to allow many people to enjoy being part of the club, at various junctures in it’s development. So, for example, you can commit to coming to the July meeting, but we’ll provide a seperate sign-up for the August get-together. This is to address the commitment issues (!) of some to the club; understandably people are very busy and may not be comfortable signing up to something they feel they can’t give their time to on a recurring basis. It’ll also allow others who can’t get in on time to make the cut for the first meeting to apply again, at a later date.

We’re also hoping to have an online/Twitter discussion on the books – perhaps a liveblog of some sort? – but we’ll reveal more about this at a later time.

We’re limiting the numbers for the first meeting to 15 – again, I really don’t like the idea of culling anyone – but unfortunately space is limited in the room we have so there sadly, for the first time around at least, there just isn’t room for everyone who’s expressed interest.

So, to sign up, just leave a comment below committing to the club for Tuesday 21st July at 7.30pm. It’ll be on in our house – 119 Upper Leeson St., Google Map here – it’s free, of course!, and food and drinks will be provided, though you can feel free to bring whatever you like if that’s what you’re into.

By the way, I’m closing the poll on the book this Friday, so that the first lucky 15 can get stuck into the chosen book in good time!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up!

PS – For those who don’t make it into the first group, please keep an eye on this page and our twitter regardless… you’re welcome to read along and contribute to the discussion online!

  13. Just to clarify, Gav is a resident of @119leesonstreet; so he (along with Catriona and Damien, other live-in leeches) will be joining us too, but we’re not counting them as part of the 15! Just to clarify. ‘Cos obviously they, you know, live here, and can’t really be left sitting outside… or can they?…
