I think you may be going about it the wrong way round. Rather than
canvas opinion, just do it.

"Build it and they will come" to paraphrase a film.

What seems to work well is just organise an event & let everyone know
when and where it's happening. If it's a regular event, rather than a
one off, then stick to it. Go to the same well published and organised
venue every week/month/fortnight or whatever interval you have
decided. Publish details clearly somewhere, let everyone know exactly
what it is or isn't.

It sometimes takes a few goes for people to come along and it become
"successful" (however you measure that).

I wouldn't let a few people who say they can't/won't come dent your enthusiasm.
