21st May - my first time attending SEED. When I stepped into the food court, the mere size of the group gave me a good reason to turn around and leave. (Thanks to Wormz777, I didn't!)
I can understand that if a newbie who wishes to attend SEED, would be reluctant to join us, especially when he knows no one in the group.I knew a newbie who has sat by the corner and just watched the group for 10 min and simply dare not approach.
I like GreenEggs_n_Ham's idea or even a buddy system would help.Let this newbie first meet up with a senior/active member and later, be introduce to the group.That would be so much easier and less intimidating.
Just a suggestion!
