I lost interest in hosting the gatherings because of an influx of a group who wanted to "take over".
Don't remember but they may have been a WorldMark group ???

The "self-appointed" leader of that group wasn't satisfied with the gatherings and kept pestering me with:
  • "Why don't we do it this way... and that way"
Don't remember his name... I think he was from India or the Middle-East.

I bit my tongue and didn't tell him:
  • "Why don't you start your own group?"
Instead... I disappeared.
Don't have any interest or time for Rabble-Rousers.

Oh that's too bad. I remember those gatherings fondly. Most of us were pretty nice I think ;) Oh I think I remember that guy. He is no longer on TUG I believe.

How are you and Didi doing? Hope you are both well...

Almost everyone was a ball to be with !
Lots of cheer and sharing of T.S. info
Munching on pizza, salads, beer, soft-drinks
Later on moving to Fuddruckers for wonderful burgers.
Fond memories !!!

We're both fully retired and as McDonalds says: "Loving it".

How about you... retired ???
Buying more T.S.'s ???

I wish! both of us are still working full time. Kids have grown and left home though. Sold or given away majority of our timeshare weeks. Let's chat off line...

Hey Doug,

Yes, I used to attend your meetings. How've you been? Time to schedule another gathering. I see I am responding to an old post, sorry I didn't see it before.

Thanks Catwgirl !!!

PS: Your "handle" (catwgirl) sounds familiar.
I used to host local TUG gatherings in the Concord/Walnut Creek area.

Did you attend one of them ?
