The food was Top-Notch; the wait staff was exceptionally attentive; those who did attend
were engaging conversationalists (Providers & Hobbyists alike). As for charging Providers
(who No-Showed), I agree w/Madam Patricia. As for the Hobbyists & Providers who No-Showed,
they should be publicly(on TER Boards) called out. See my posting under M & G Board.
One thing I might suggest: is that those gents who No-Showed, should make an offer to BP.
Here is my suggestion : Create a fund for a Battered Women's Shelter with the 17 x $80 missing
funds and the rest of us should try to match a single $80, with an $80 donation to the fund.
In this way, the $80 is a tax deductible donation to a cause that affects any number of women
within and without our "community" As for Ladies who No-Showed, I gave
my 2 cents on the M & G Board. I suggest all of us in the Los Angeles "community" read that
thread as well. Be Well & Stand Tall my fellow TERistas.
