For those of you who attended our Party Up For Power Down (PUFPD) last month, thank you for your time and input. We learned a lot and look forward to seeing you again.

The group that attended the first PUFPD raised lots of questions. We need to tell you in advance that we do not have answers to all of them. Our desire for getting together is to engage everyone’s intelligence in finding answers to many of those questions. The Transition Initiative process is not an answer in itself but a process for involving local citizens in imagining their future and how to get there. This is about our collective ability to seek ways to define our future.

The PUFPD is primarily intended as a time for social networking and we hope that it becomes more of that as time goes on. In the meantime we will provide some structure within which discussion can occur and we plan to enjoy ourselves in the process.

If these primary opportunities to get together with like-minded folks are a focus on having "fun", when will we be able to seriously address, and begin to act upon, the actual, real issues that bring us together in the first place? Are people actually looking for more parties to go to? Is more social recreation going to feed our already saturated consuming selves? And I do acknowledge we are speaking to our "choir." Do we need more and more sizzle before we languish from lack of beef? What does the leadership have in mind? Will you start by trying to please everyone, and end up challenging no one? I have the strange feeling that the idea of creating a party out of the reality of our energy situation is over-reacting. Of course any real work we do is based on our depth of relationship. Mel

My attendance is based on priorities, and for me as long as Transition Whatcom is working toward creating a more viable/sustainable way for all of us to live on this planet, it is a priority and I will be matter the day of the week. And, that said, I appreciate the fact that it starts at 7 PM rather than 8, that earlier time allows my attendance, as I must retire early every night. It could even start at 6 or 6:30. Thanks for all your devoted work, David.

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for the feedback. We are experimenting with what days work best. The first one was on a Friday, this one is on a Thursday.

I hope you'll consider varying the day of the week you choose for events. If it's always Thursday some of us will always have conflicts. :(
