I would like to thank Raphael for putting this together. This is a good run down on the proper procedures to follow for setting up meets.

- The organizer of the meet (generally the original poster in the thread) is responsible for making sure everyone is clear on the meeting date, time and location.
- It is a good practice for the meet organizer to post in the thread for people to submit their phone numbers via Private Message only.
- To protect your privacy and safety, please do not post your private information in the thread itself! Do not forget that anyone in the world can read what you post in these boards, even if they are not registered users on the Blazer Forum.
- As the meet time gets closer (e.g., 24-48 hours prior to the meet), the organizer should then PM the group with the numbers, so that the group can communicate with each other offline the day of the event. This is because things can always come up on the day of the event, and most of us will probably not be close to a computer when that happens!
Again, we encourage everyone to be safe and have fun!
If anyone has any questions about this procedure, please post up in this thread.
