Glad a few of you had fun at the potluck and board games. Next one will probably be another Memorial Park meetup on a weekend in March. No idea what the weather is like, but that doesn't really matter, does it? We can sled if it's snowy, or slackline if it's not.

Which weekend works best for everyone?

I don't know my work schedule that far out, and my days off vary from week to week. If it happens on a day we can make it, I'll try to come. Just don't try to plan around my crazy schedule. :P

I head out of town this weekend on business for three weeks. I'll have a better idea of my March schedule when I get back.  I'm expecting another few days out of town, but March should be fairly open.

March is a good time for me. The only exception is the weekend of March 11-12 (Sat-Sun). Otherwise, I'm free.

We would be interested in joining in March with our two kids.

All right, I'm thinking of the weekend of 3/18 or 3/19 somewhere at Palmer Park. I am not in a position to do a potluck or anything like that currently, but I'm down for a hike, or anything else. I've been there twice in the last few weeks, and I know the playground gets busy. I was thinking of something more towards the middle. I know there is a gazebo here, and while there are signs that say it needs to be reserved, I've never seen people there (if we choose this, I'll probably go back, and see about actually reserving it...if all else fails, we could just leave if someone showed up too). What think you all? Good date? Good location?

If so, I'll start another thread for this meetup specifically.

A hike in Palmer Park on March 18 or 19 sounds good!

All right, I'm thinking the 18th. I'll get the post up once I confirm the gazebo stuff. Hopefully this weekend. Also, just in case you were curious...

It's going to be 3/19 at 1pm. So not this weekend, but next. I'll make another thread right quick, and post it here.

2nd ongoing meetup was a success. Thank you to all of you who showed up. It was fun, and I think I've got some good ideas as for the next one.

I was thinking though, I am most definitely going to be doing the Starlight Spectacular this year, and I usually create a 'team', so I'll post the link once we can sign up for it. There will be something else before then for sure though.

For those who didn't get to talk about future meetups in person, what kind of things would you be interested in doing?

We've done a park picnic (we had a slackline, but none of us used it), and we've done a meandering hike. Some thoughts are bike rides, meeting up at a brewery, some multi-day backpacking adventures, etc. We live in the awesome place where a majority of the land is a big free playground. What think you?
