This Meetup Group Can No Longer Be No-Cost and Will Terminate
Prakash has stepped down as the only officially-registered organizer of our meetup group, although Pete Lyons and Rylan Bowers had also done some light organizing as needed.
However, it seems although we've had the meetup group on super-low simmer mode for several years, we will no longer be able to use Meetup for free according to their guidlines (fewer than 50 members and 3 organizers). We have some 354 members currently.
In order to continue the meetup group, Meetup wants $14.99/month. Since we hold in-person meetups so rarely and the attendance is only a tiny fraction of our membership, Rylan and I are inclined to allow the meetup group to lapse and be shut down.
