Yeah, I wasn't sure how much of a commute driving to Hudson would be. I figured since it was a 20-25 minute drive from WPI that it'd be in the general vicinity for people who're probably commuting in central MA. I figured it'd be worth trying at least once since we've been discussing transitioning back to in-person meetings for some time, and it was something I was able to set up with ease since the library is down the street from my home.

The Hudson Location involves more driving for me. My guess is if we have more meetings there, I would likely attend just a few from time to time. I do not plan to be there tonight. That being said and not having been there, free parking and food nearby sound like definite pluses. I'm anxious to hear how the meeting goes.

Speaking with the Technopia folks, they're interested in having us, but it sounds like it would happen in the Sept. time frame, I'd like to have a couple in person meetings before that.
Is this something people would be interested in doing tomorrow?

I've learned that the library in my town is open to the public for hosting club meetings! More info:
Some of the benefits I can think of for having meetings at the library include:
- Free hosting
- Free public wifi
- Free on-site parking
- Low noise levels
- Projector and whiteboard are available
- Books, music, movies, etc, are available for checking out
- Adjacent to many restaurants, most having outdoor seating
- Has EV charging stations nearby
- Access to well-maintained walking trails and public parks
- Conference room capacity is capped at 10 occupants
- Meetings must end 15 minutes before library's closing time, so
would have to end at 8:15PM
- Many restaurants might be closed by 9PM
I could imagine going back to our usual monthly meetings, from 7:00PM to 8:15PM on Thursdays, then walking over to one of the restaurants next door for food and drinks. I can personally vouch for these local establishments, all reachable within a 5 minute walk:
