Re: [tlug] July 2020 meeting

The primary risk of holding a TLUG meeting lies not with the meeting itself but with the nomikai afterwards.

If you get a large enough venue where attendees can sit down while keeping good distance between each other
and if everybody is wearing a mask at all times (no drinking, no eating while at the venue), further providing
alcohol for disinfecting hands at the entrance, then the risk is manageable.

If you want to take extra precautions, you might want to have a PA system at the venue and a wireless
microphone that a volunteer will operate for Q&A because the spread of aerosol is larger
when speaking with a louder voice. The presenter should also speak through a microphone
and wear a mask during the presentation

All bets are off if people then go to a bar or restaurant for a nomikai.

However, for many of us, the socialising with others is one of the attractions of the TLUG meetings.

To manage that risk, attendees could be told to bring their own food and drinks (or a short trip to a
convenience store could be scheduled) and then have a picnic in a nearby park where social
distancing can be observed.

on having a physical meeting this month but given the current state of
things I think a virtual meeting might be better.

I am looking at options for video conferencing.  I was looking at

Which could work for general discussion, but maybe not as well for
presentations, I am open for suggestions.
