If you send your meetup request to the balloon juice meetups email address, any willing front pager can create the meetup event.
If you prefer to send your meetup request directly to a particular front pager – and they have indicated that they are agreeable to that – it might be best to include a cc: to the meetups address, to make sure all your bases are covered in case that particular person is unusually busy, away, or otherwise occupied.
If you like, you can copy the text below into your email message and just fill in the blanks.
Information that you must include in your meetup email request:
Your commenter name (nym) and a working email address
City or area where the meetup will be held
