The goal of this meetup was to attract a group that was more interested in actually doing something more than socialising in a pub. I think this was achieved. Those that showed up had info and ideas to share. There were also others that expressed interest in attending but were unable to do so with it being on a Monday so I'm thinking of doing a similar schedule as the Christchurch meetups. These were held once a fortnight on alternating Mondays and Tuesdays. I'll poll the group about this.
The First Auckland Skeptics in the Pub gathering was held at the Horse and Trap in Mt Eden. It's quite a nice place and the lower floor, which was reserved for the event, was the perfect size for the crowd.
