    Which locale do you prefer: Sacramento area, Fresno area, or Riverside area?

      I guess Sacramento will be best for the Gathering. But please let it be at least in three (3) months time for me to raise enough fund for my coming and prepare well because it takes a long process here in Nigeria

      If in Sacramento area, November to February are off season times. If enough people show interest, I will plan for the gathering near where I live, which is about midway between San Francisco and Sacramento.

      Is there a way you can send messages to old members who are yet to move to the new platform so you can carry them along?

        Exec Elder Mooney retains the email addresses of all members from the beginning; state members from the old website as well.  I would suggest contacting him (thru Help Desk) to ask him if there is yet a way to contact the state (or country) members who had registered on the old website.

      The numbers that has migrated from the old platform to the new one are noticeably lower. We had, as I recall, over 300 members of the California group in the old format. Yet few members regularly were posting on that group’s page. It took me a couple tries to make the transition to the new platform myself.

      That would help get the dialog going. I remember a while back our group had a discussion about a gathering and finding a central location was the biggest hurdle. I think each of those three areas has its own appeal and foresee alternating locales from year to year.

      I’m face with the same issue here in Nigeria getting members move from old platform to the new platform especially those who was a bit active before. I do send them messages asking them to move to the new platform but very few (less than 10 out of 300+) has done that. That is why we could not hold any Gathering yet in Nigeria. But I believe before the year runs out, we shall be able to hold at least 2. We need to put more effort to carry them along the way we do to our babies. lol

      Possible location found in Colton. Nearest airport  Ontario. We have ~ 50 members within an hour of Colton. How many would attend if scheduled early November?

      Bay Area locales near me are indoor: //www.journeyantioch.com and outdoor: Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve //www.ebparks.org

      Southern CA venue possible at Colton Library. Would have to be early November. Member input?

      The Colton Library won’t be acceptable. I have enough interested members who would be willing to visit Antioch and hold the venue there on November 30th. I will firm up the place this week. Read the NACM updates for this month. It details who can come to a gathering. I will post the six motels within a five mile radius of the venue. I will inquire about a group discount at the Hampton Inn tomorrow.

      Revising this – Oakland Airport is 1 hour away, which is good.   There is also a public charter that flies from Burbank to East Bay/Napa Concord – not much more expensive because they are scheduled flights  //trueblue.jetblue.com/jetsuitex.  Is the Nov 30 date firm?  Travel should be arranged quickly because it is Thanksgiving weekend and it will fill up quickly.

      We are now on November 23rd. The 30th would be too busy for others from southern CA. Hours would be approx 1:00pm to 4:30pm. More plans to follow.

      I am located in the California desert and a southern California location would be something I could attend.  Please advise where the California location will be.  Thank you and Bless you!  Rev.  Eileen

      What is the latest I can RSVP?  Easy flight from Long Beach to Oakland but I will not know the schedule for some church work I may be doing on nOV 23rd until close to the date.
