I would echo that. In the approximately 20 years that I've been attending LUG Meetings we've always had problems when the venue was not a bus ride from our membership base. Since the largest conurbation in Dorset has always Bournemouth, Bournemouth has been the most successful location for a venue. We've tried various other venues and for a while, Dorchester wasn't too bad because we had a fair few people who lived there or nearby. Most of those people moved on and we ended up with the average Meeting attendance falling to 3 or 4. Since we moved to the Broadway and more recently, the Electric Club, we've maintained a fairly strong attendance record for quite a few years. -- Terry Coles -- Next meeting: Online, Jitsi, Tuesday, 2021-07-06 20:00 Check to whom you are replying Meetings, mailing list, IRC, ... http://dorset.lug.org.uk New thread, don't hijack: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
