Longmont - where do all the Mustachians hangout?
« on: August 09, 2023, 01:20:23 PM »
Hi All, I'm passing through Longmont and would love to hangout with some Mustachians - where do y'all hangout?
I've been fulltiming in my van for 5+ years, been to many MMM meetups and am loving Colorado!

Also, I would love to play pickleball in Longmont; any suggestions for good outdoor courts?

I've never been to Longmont, but they organize some of their events through Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/NoCoMustachians/

Unfortunately, I don't think we actually have any members here from Longmont, at least not that I can think of...

MMM headquarters is there. A full time hangout space with coworking offices, meeting room, gym, beer, etc. Try looking it up.

For pickleball, Iíve heard that Hover Acres Park in Longmont is the place to go.

Iím in Boulder and thereís free drop-in at the North & South Boulder Rec Centers (drop-in schedule is here https://bouldercolorado.gov/services/pickleball).

South Boulder Rec always has a good crowd of all skill levels playing daily starting around 8am until 11am-ish. There are 8 courts with rolling nets (on tennis courts). Typically, 6 of the courts are used for all levels + 2 challenge courts.

Let me know if youíre interested in meeting up at South Boulder Rec to play!

Thx @VTI, but I've moved on. I'm in Salida ATM. I did play at Hover Park - great bunch there, but it got too hot.
I knew about the MMM HQ @uniwelder, but they specifically say to please not go there and peak through the windows - something about respecting the people that are actually working there, blah, blah, blah, lol.
Thanks for the tip @Tass about the meetup groups - by the time I decided to go to a meeting, they were full and had waitlists!
Thanks for the laugh @Metalcat!
I'm vaguely headed towards Moab; hope to see some of yous there at the meetup in October!

We just drove through Longmont yesterday to get out a little bit. The MMM HQ has been stripped of all the MMM identifiers on the windows. Too many curious onlookers I guess and it is a real co-working space.

The Town of Lafayette has installed 4 pickleball courts at Waneka Lake and they are constantly in use. Another spot to check out if you're in the area again.
