Can you eat pie then run afterwards? We can get more pie here! I imagine that the 5&6th would be the most important days.
Notice to all: The idea is a meeting during the time between 3-6 May. I can have good office space for those who still need to get work done, and the "Main Events" would be best done on the weekend, but a longer time period will enable more folks to attend than a short one.
Since a geek meet for OpenEMR would by nature require internet access (unless physicians are on hand to distribute Valium), a larger venue for meetings would likely not be as desirable, so I have a suite of offices (950sf) at ARSP Inc. for our exclusive use, and a house without much clutter in it (1250sf) we can gather at or otherwise use. Larger venues are available if a lot of folks RSVP, but we commonly have meetings of as many as 16 people, and dinner parties of 30. There will be on-site primitive crash space (some foam futons and a couple of extra beds) local hotels, cafes, a grill, a porch, and plenty of parking. I can also provide airport shuttle service for up to 4 people at a time (sans steamer trunks).
If we have a very large number of RSVP's, we have several venue options nearby including meeting rooms at the library, a clubhouse, and a beachside pavilion.
I can also take dinner party menu requests at this time.
St. Petersburg is in the Tampa Bay metro area on the West Coast of Florida. Tampa is 65 miles from Disney, and a bunch of other junk like that. We are located near some great (for non-surfers) beaches, and there is water within 4 miles in every direction. Fishing gear and live bait available on request.
Some events could include (depending on participation):
An official board meeting for OEMR (hopefully with a quorum, local + remote presence) with the purpose of hammering out an OEMR P.O.A.&M., hopefully attended and podcast to the community.
A Meet and Greet community party.
Some special projects committee meetings.
Hopefully we can even manage a little press release or some reporting from WUSF or WMNF, our local public broadcasting stations.
