All activities at the meeting are voluntary; if you have a strong opinion that 
a specific activity should happen you might consider volunteering to make it 

Also keep in mind there is likely part of the membership that does not wish to 
be on-stream.

I'm not planning stream video to the Jitsi Meet conference but I might opt to 
connect my phone via audio provided everyone present is alright with me doing 

In addition, the "Golden Nugget" is a restaurant and not a private meeting 
space so there may be limits in what we can do.

We will continue to host our 4th Tuesday meeting on-line via Jitsi.
