I have an idea!! Lets have 2 gatherings a month instead of 1. We do have a grande meeting every month however we can still have an additional gathering to the major 1. If we have 2, we can host the first gathering in the first half of a month and 2nd gathering, in the 2nd half of the same month so that we socialize and come together more.
Maybe the additional gathering could be something informal like a pool party or barbeque party at someone's house or outside. We can find some nice and warm places to host our informal gathering. I will try my best to help arranging for it. And our Ankara community members, Im sure will come up brilliant ideas to make it happen.
