This is a bit of a sad announcement, but I have to shut down my local (Tulsa, OK) CFUG today. Since my kids were born last January, the attention that I have given to the group has really suffered. In truth, I probably never put enough effort to it.
In any event, attendance hasn't been good for several months and I haven't made the time and effort to really change things enough. I think if I were going to really turn things around, I would have done so already.
Even so, the group has been around for seven years so I don't consider it a total failure. When I moved to Tulsa in 2002, it didn't have an active group and I resolved to make sure that I did. I hoped to find someone else to run it, but others were too busy. This was, as it turned out, quite a blessing.
The group officially kicked off as the "Tulsa Macromedia Users Group" in September of 2003 and then changes to the "Tulsa CFUG" about three years later partly as a consequence of the Adobe merger and partly just because we were focusing mostly of CF anyway.
I have really enjoyed running the group and enjoyed meeting everyone that stopped by for meetings. I hope I am able to stay friends with the people I met through the group.
While I hope someone will find the time to restart the group, I am really thankful to have had the experience.
