Ok, I'll speak up for the travelers. I have spoken to some other
people at meetings who like me drive a long distance to FW. Some
from Lancaster, Reading (yeah not that far), or like me all the way
in Wilkes-Barre (2hrs call me crazy). So for us northern travelers
I'd suggest that pub night is less appealing than FW.
Also I'll be the first to mention that having a meeting at the pub/
bar might be less desirable for some of us coffee only drinkers.
That said I'm Ok with alternating if needed, but I would suggest
actually having the first pub night to check attendance and find out
what the overlap between FW and CC visitors before making any plans
It might mean that I and some others will only make it to FW/burbs,
but it also means that some CC people will finally get to participate.
