Meetup has decided to cancel the free community pages many of us have been using to organize free Blender meetings.
Here’s the article: http://help.meetup.com/customer/portal/articles/1726205
They want us to all go to paid Meetup pages. As the organizer of the Los Angeles which is the biggest group on this Meetup Everywhere Community Pages I propose we find another free service or host our own calendar so free Blender groups have a free place to organize their user meetings.
We in Los Angeles have over 100 people on our list and we regularly get much bigger turn outs than the RSVPs count.
It will be over in less than two weeks. So what do the wise and informed BA users think is a good platform for us to recommend the users migrate to so we can make a decision and get the word out?
Thanks for everyone’s support up until now and through this transition and let’s keep the free meeting organizations going so let us know your suggestions.

The pages are at:
UPDATE: Ok, the above pages are gone now. Like gone gone. They give a doesn’t exist error now.
So if you don’t mind using the regular meetup pages you can find them here:
The maintainers of these groups get charged money for them so if they don’t have sponsors you might want to pitch in if they ask for a donation.
