02 - February 20, 2006 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Location: Flowers, 4247 University Way NE
Present: Bill Carr (meeting organizer); Micheline; Suzanna; Robert Zverina

We started with some introductions...

Micheline is founder and president of Francophones de Seattle. She is a strong bus advocate and would like to see outreach to people of all ages and needs.

Suzanna bicycles.

PURPOSE
General discussion about how a carfree club/movement could be organized and what it should aim to do. The ambitious goal of previous meeting was to determine the identity, goal(s), and name of the group during this meeting, but that didn't happen. 

DISCUSSION
The discussion over dinner ranged over many aspects of cars and their alternatives, with a lot of attention paid to attracting people other than bicyclists. It was a agreed that if a club is formed, it should be inclusive and accentuate fun. Various events were discussed: Metro day trips, costume parties on bus, carfree movie nights, sticker swaps.

To broaden outreach, it was suggested that we work to organize through community centers such as the one on Phinney Ridge and ecology organizations such as Sustainable Ballard.
