I find it rather disappointing that I've only had one reply to this. 
Firstly I would hope for some sort of constructive comments from 
everyone whether they would attend or not. But secondly the fact only 
one other person in the Wycombe area is even paying attention to this 
list really does show there is a need for it in this area.

Could I please have some sort of feedback on how I go about setting up a 
meet with only 1 other confirmed attendee. I know it would work great 
once it's going, I just have a fear that the first meet could well end 
up being just me!
