    At the last South West MO Regional Meeting, we discussed the idea of arranging monthly meetings for other regions in Missouri. This thread is for the Kansas City, MO area meetings. I guess we will start the ball rolling with some initial questions. 1st: should we have the meetings at the beginning, middle or end of every month? 2nd: what day of the week works best for everyone on average? 3rd: what time of day works best for everyone on average? 4th: what part of the city should the meetings be held? 5th: should we rotate which part of the city we meet at every month? 6th: what venues within the city should we hold the meetings at? These are just some starting questions to get the discussion ball rolling.

    This thread is going to be a sticky so that new people can add their ideas and so that we can adjust things as problems arise. By problems I mean things that might necessitate changing: day, time, city, venue, etc. This will also allow people to arrange car pooling if necessary. As this meeting thread is for Kansas City area vapers in Missouri, I assume someone in that area will take the helm when it comes to organizing the meetings. I hope that this will be a helpful starting point for discussing monthly meetings in the Kansas City area.

    Hmmm, we had to move after my daughters brain surgery, so sadly no more pool parties :-( , But we could put together something for the end of the month in KC. How about a nice BBQ by a local lake (weather permitting)?

    As I am not in the area, I have to leave it to you guys up in KC to setup and maintain your regional meetings. Your idea sounds like a good suggestion. I hope more of your regional vapers jump in. Good luck :D .

    Well this didn't go very well, maybe it's as I thought and there is only a few vappers in the KC area. As I never see any around town.

    I've been "converting" as many smokers as I can around Joplin, but it's not as easy as I thought it would be.

    I have two men at work that got 510 disposable from me for the wives. And we got a memo that there would be no smoking breaks except lunch after jan. 1. So some people have been asking questions lately.

    You KC-area folks should try to organize a local meetup! There are several members in the area, and it doesn't have to be a big deal. It could be as simple as 3 or 4 people having lunch, drinks, or converging on a picnic table in the park. Who knows? You might even like each other! :D

    Any ideas for a location, Cyia?

    I would say the plaza fountain but parking down there is a pain in the butt. And then there is always westport, I know raytown still has smoking in some of the bars there so vaping inside wouldn't be a problem. I'm not much of the go out on the town every week type of person So me choosing a place that's comfy and for everyone is probably not a good idea LOL. If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears though! I'd love to get together and have a monthly meet up with fellow vapers in town :)

    I dunno, sounds like you've already had more/better ideas than anyone else in this thread. Besides, if the other folks in your area were "Socialites", there would already be a meet planned. ;) maybe a more low-key, casual venue is just the thing to get a couple of these couch potatos out of the house for a change :D

    Maybe we should just think of places where we could vap without any problems, the only places I can think of is out doors.

    Only other place is a bar in Raytown that allows smoking. Guess we could always go and ask places but without freaking people out or reserving a room of some sort I'm just not sure where either

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be anyone interested in organizing a meet in the KC area. That's too bad: there is a lot of potential there.
