    I thought they already were doing daily morning meetings at McDonald's.

    Haha, right, any expat group meeting at McD's already comes with a reputation. If you want to get @Wrye83 involved, then you will need to meet at WhyNot.

    Why McD's? Given this is an expat group, then why not meet at an expat owned business? There are lots of places which could use the business and would accommodate you better than McD's.

    A place like Garcia's could probably open early only for your members (I don't know what time they open currently.) Black Pearl could probably give you their Karaoke room for the meetings as nobody goes in there that early in the morning. Lots of other places have rooms or areas they could reserve for you.

    I, for example boycott Mc.C..p, and I am wondering what kind of group this would likely be, in my experience, any group of foreign immigrants(I assume that you mean only immigrants and not guys on Tourist Visas)in any country I have visited, were by nationalities or at least by language... what would be the purpose of this group...

    We are only meeting there until things get moving along. If you want to be critical go ahead, that never accomplices anything.

    Come to the meeting and hear for yourself. I am not here to argue with anyone.

    Well, your reply at least accomplished that I will not be a member...

    I've seen a group of expats at maccas but I don't know if they were there for a conference but they're just unfortunately loud mouths and they fight (not agreeing to what the other say) the maccas guard even intervene, too scared that they will create a scene. These guys are sitting outside maccas every 7-8am.

    Hey, I have a tourist visa. But I would have a proper immigrant visa if they offered one (that i qualified for).

    Sounds like the daily MacDogfoods breakfast club, the self appointed foreign embassy and rumour control, the ones who know everything and can fix anything, often because of their dubious dreamers past with Special Forces/CIA/FBI/Pirate taming et al.
    Seem to be made up of various groups. There are the Specialists In Combat Knowledge (S.I.C.K.), the Failures United (F.U.) and most prominently The Wasters And Tossers Society (T.W.A.T.S.)

    Sounds to me that you know them personally? Well what happened was, we were sitting right next to them. My husband normally have breakfast (coffee) there with his other mates. The first time i went with them, these group of guys just been yelling at each other so loud that people inside maccas were even looking at them, we couldnt even hear each other although we were sitting right next to each other because of these men. (its like going to a disco pub!) You may be right because all they talked was about special forces and showing the scars from gun shots.

    They were even cursing each other that loud that one of our friends have to tell them to shut up because i was there then one of the guys had a go with him and made it even worse. Theyre loosers alright.
