    Hi @Coachdigi i'm afraid you listed your event as a business. This is why it is not showing on events page.

    When adding an event you have to select event listing option:

    Then fill in the following event information:

    I hope this helps.

    Hey guys,

    Here is the address for my brand new shiny official Apple approved Dash wallet.
    XeamMykfNgMVjMCujyXCgduK8UE9Mb7fpM
    If you could be so kind as to send the Wild Card prize to it... I will be distributing it to newbies tonight.
    P.S. No real hurry.. I can self fund my evangelism, but it would be cool to say that this Dash comes directly from Dash_Force.

    Crypto Club Bristol

    Just held my first meetup and it went amazingly well. 15 people turned up over the course of the evening, I was able to give a presentation that answered a great deal of their questions and highlighted the benefits of Dash and uses of cryptocurrency in general. Thanks to posts I made on the Facebook event many had come with Jaxx installed and everyone left with a Dash wallet of some kind including 2 of the new iOS wallets, all with $10 in them.

    I advertised it on Facebook, £1 a day for 7 days, this allowed the event to reach people outside of my friendship circle and made a very significant impact on the levels of attendance with 3600 impression, 374 views, and 81 responses - advert results.jpg
    I have already booked in next month's event and I will be seeking to expand to business adoption meetups once I've found my footing and have a PoS system that I can recommend through experience.

    ~45 attendees.

    16 new people set up with wallets and refunded cover charge in Dash.

    Pic 1 is the young woman collecting cover charge.

    Pic 2 is Rosa. Presenter and cofounder of the group.

    Pic 3 is the group abut 1/2 hour before start.

    Pics 4,5&6 are the transactions that I gave out.

    Note: not really a contest entry, just documenting how the Wild Card prize was spent.
    Note 2: pro tip when sending Dash to a new person using a brand new Jaxx wallet. Tell them NOT TO REFRESH balance. Just wait a few seconds. If they hit refresh balance on a brand new wallet, it tries to read the whole blockchain.

    Hi guys

    I am planning a meet-up for 7pm, 2 August. See https://dash-africa.com/dash4beer/

    I have posted my meeting on https://discoverdash.com/event-pro/dash4beer/

    When I tried to register on meetup.com, I was told that I had to pay US$2.99 per month minimum, but I don't have a bank account, so I didn't.

    I'd hate to spend money, but receive none, because I made a mistake. Is this OK? Do I really have to pay to register at meetup.com before I can arrange a meet-up?

    Because, honestly, nobody is going to come because they saw our event on a website. 99% of people will come, because they heard through word-of-mouth. Hout Bay is a very small community.

    It does cost a small bit for the organizer but all other memberships are free. Do you have a free local website like meetup.com or craigslist etc you could post to?

    Thanks for the reply, @mastermined

    I honestly expect to get 20 attendees without any more advertising. I do not want to deal with more than that for now. There are local places where I could advertise, but there is no need. I simply want to print a few posters.

    Does this make sense to you?

    One a week. I updated the contest to be more clear...

    "You can host this meetup once a month or once a week. Each time (week or month) you will be required to find a new business to accept Dash and host your meetup there.
    *Limit: 4 Meetups per month per group, once a week"

    So I added weekly requirements to have a new location and a limit of 4 per month per group. Without this limit our budget would go broke. I will be starting a new merchant adoption contest next month which will be unlimited. I will probably lower the rewards next month as prices have gone up. I will update the whole contest next month as I work out all the issues.

    I would like it posted on a public meetup type site so anyone can attend. On one hand I want as many people to attend as possible and not limit the meetup, but I also see how it could be quite a production and hard to handle with 20+ people. I'll have to think of a solution. Probably a new medium sized (10-12 person) meetup for a little less Dash.
    For this month don't worry about posting it if you think you will have almost 20 already.

    Thanks @mastermined...

    Whenever I go to the pub, Dash is all that I talk about to people. The 11 faces in the photo at https://dash-africa.com/dash4beer/ will almost certainly attend, and bring friends. I can't cope with more people than that.

    I quoted them in my reply above and they have been updated in the original post on the first page.
    Any future updates will be posted here in the comments section as well so no one will miss any updates. There should not be anymore updates this month but I have a few planned for next month to keep things fair for everyone.

    Salute from Croatia ( you probably never heard of it LOL)

    lol thanks you @Zoran Kutuzovic. we are young and have the power to promote dash in our country.
    So girl always smile because they want that boys see them. so we don't have to.
    so why we never don't heard " Croatia "
    why I know lucka modric, Ivan rakitic, I know a lot about Croatia then we always learn about thing in the world. I can say that for you about never.heard about Haiti.

    Okay the buddy.

    Hi guys... esp @mastermined & @thedesertlynx

    I still have a lot of work to do, but my promo page looks better now: https://dash-africa.com/dash4beer

    The meetup going to happen quite soon: 2 August.

    I can't really afford to risk my small amount of money by giving Dash to more than 20-30 people. So my friends in the photo and others will receive invites, but I cannot afford yet to advertise it to the general public.

    Hope I'm on the right path!

    Oh wow, finally... I've been trying to upload these pics for days :)
    So I hope I'm doing this right - this is my first entry...

    I met up with these two at the Factory in Berlin last Friday. Explained them crypto & Dash, helped them to install the Jaxx wallet (that was just before the news about the Dash wallet for iPhone came out) and then sent them each $10 worth of Dash (0.061 Dash at the time).
    Unfortunately the transactions took ages and the girl had to leave before it arrived in her wallet. That's why she sent me another picture from home later.

    After speaking with @joemoraca (Head Dash Force News reviewer and researcher) on the current state of Dash's offline IRL POS system solutions i have decided to put my new merchant adoption program on hold for now and also pause the merchant adoption part of the meetups until there is a solid POS solution. The current merchant adoption meetup program will continue until the end of this month/cycle, then we will try again in the next month or two after new solutions that are in the works are released.
    I'm afraid we are moving too fast and not having a proper POS solution could turn merchants off to Dash as it is not easy to do now and is overly complicated. We can't wait for Evolution to solve this issue (which it eventually will) but hopefully in the next month or so new POS solutions will be released and we can continue.
