VIRTUAL FRIDAY SOCIAL
By Ed Sawin, Happy Hour Chair
You don’t know how much you miss something until it is taken away from you. And that is the case with Friday Night Socials. Getting together with your friends after a hard week at work and having a couple of drinks is something we all miss. Our last in-person social was March 6th, and who knows when we will be able to start having them again? Fortunately, John Iwanicki hosted the first virtual Friday Social through the club’s Meetup page on May 15th. A total of 18 people participated for approximately two hours. The virtual happy hour was setup through the Zoom software. We all thought that it was a success, but are still evaluating everything. Future virtual happy hours will be posted on the Meetup site, and the club’s website for further analysis. Clearly one problem will be the number of people signing up for the virtual Friday Social. Just like in a real bar situation, it’s hard for 20–25 people to all talk at once in a virtual setting. One answer might be to have several smaller groups, something like three groups with attendance limited to 15 people in each group. But then it seems like someone in one group would not be able to chat with a person in another group. Anyhow, as mentioned above, this is still a work in progress. So stay tuned.
