Consultation regarding format for gatherings...
As you know, we have two different types of formats for our gatherings: one when there is a host, and another when there is no host. Over the last two years, months without a host have increased in number, and hosting has decreased. In light of this, we may be able to consider a third type of format, which is a hybrid of the other two: where there is no host for part one of the gathering, but instead of gathering in Trestevere, we could gather at other places in the city, and one of our members could volunteer to lead us to a place for dinner, effectively acting as the coordinator of only the dinner part. This could offer a little more variety than always going to Trastevere.
Thus, there would be three options:
- Traditional: Hosting the preliminaries at one’s residence and then either leading the group to a place for pizza, or providing dinner at the same residence.
- Alternative 1: Meeting at Trastevere (19:00) and going to a local place.
- Alternative 2: Meeting at 19:00 at a specified place (e.g. Piazza del Popolo, Colosseum, Pantheon) and going to a local place, under the guidance of a volunteer coordinator for that evening. The volunteer would select the place to meet.
I propose that during the month of October, we share opinions and ideas on this proposal. Then, afterwards, we can proceed according to the prevailing inclinations.
