Thank you Bill. It is nice to have alternatives.

Or that may not feel as comfortable. But the same can be said for when we met at the pub.

Really? I haven't heard of such case. Really.

Up to now the sound system has been reliable. 

Would sitting in the front row or close to the speaker (as I do) help the situation?

I mean, people cannot have it both ways, sitting far so they can chat and at the same time hear the presentation.

I really prefer the SJK location. Neutral, central, close to Zekes.

Attendance to the monthly meetings has been healthy. It seems to me that it is still attractive to new attendees as I see new faces and "new regular" faces at each meeting.

Any location will have one issue or another. I don't find a compelling reason to change.

So for now, I end the same way I started. I am grateful to the people that secured an alternative location. It is great to have alternatives. Hopefully we will not need it.
