Toronto Astronomy Meetup expiring

There was some conversation surrounding Meetup. Denis started it off sharing that he had created a group as an experiment, for social media, for outreach. In the year running it, he had attracted about 100 people, from the general public. Perhaps 3 or 4 attended some RASC events. It was coming up for renewal and he didn't want to fund it again. Then he said that he thought it might be very good if integrated into our existing services and made the primary communication channel. I thought that a little odd. We have a good communication solution for our members: Yahoo. And our current web site for notices. Jason, Allard, and Paul all made comments. We need some more data...
