[Wvgc-go] Can we do something about all of the inactive meetings on the calendar?

The Bethany club doesnt exist anymore as far as I can tell.  I tried to go to it a year ago and no one was there.

The Lucky Lab group had very low attendance the last time I went, last year.  I'm not sure if its still happening.

I would be interested in a club aimed at Kyu players, and I hope you create one!

 Over the last year I've attended no fewer
 than 5 go club meetings where no one was there or the club
 was on hiatus. It's sad to see that there seem to be
 fewer and fewer players coming to the meetings and I wonder
 if it might be harder to attract new players when the main
 calendar of go meetings can be fairly
 I'd really like to remedy this by removing
 clubs that are inactive or at least updating the calendar
 when there's a meeting that is not meeting for part of
 the year. Recently I've found that:
 The Bethany club was not happening last
 time a went (a month or tw ago). I tried to contact the
 organizer via the contact info on oregongo.org
 and received no reply. Does this club still exist?I
 haven't seen anyone at Lucky lab on Saturdays when
 I've gone over the last 6 months or so. It could be that
 it happens sometimes and I have only gone when it's not
 happening, but so far I haven't seen anyone there in
 some time.Seems that the Lewis and Clark Go Club
 event has been updated to cease during the summer season so
 that's great!If there's any way I can
 help keep the calendar up-to-date, I'd be willing to
 volunteer some of my time to make sure that the schedule is
 accurate. I've also thought about trying to organize a
 night aimed at kyu players, but I would probably prefer to
 wait until after the calendar has been updated to reflect
 the currently active meetings so it doesn't get lost in
 the mix. When there aren't many players at Powell's,
 it can be hard for a player who is weaker than 5k or so to
 find a game. Generally I've found the players to be very
 accommodating and I understand the desire to play with
 players of one's own strength, so I think such a meeting
 could serve as a good environment for weaker players looking
 to improve. If possible it would be great to eventually
 include lectures from time to time from stronger
 Anyway, I just thought I'd put in my two
 cents and also offer to assist in keeping the calendar
 organized and up-to-date. Thoughts? Suggestions?
