One idea is to meet at the new Visitor Center building at Gettysburg Park.

The Visitor Center would be a good place, and easy to find for us out-of-towner's.

Brad

And we need Erich to show up. Give me a time to be at the Visitor Center and I will leave from to time it right.

Brad
11-27-2010, 09:58 PM
The folks who are working that morning need to say when they can get to Gettysburg. Then I will be there at that time.

Charlie
11-28-2010, 05:59 PM

Tina is thinking it over. I have a feeling it's gonna cost me a trip to the mall, some cash and maybe some credit too.

Everyone is welcome here at my home first. Then we can depart from here. That's if you want to.

This sounds good to me.

If I leave the cabin at 2am I can be at the Visitor Center at 1PM easily. Is 1:00 PM okay with everyone? How about Erich?

Snow Miser

1PM will be good for me.

Dave, if some of us meet at your place, what would be a good time to be there?

1pm could work. Can someone provide an address in order to map it? The greater Gettysburg area is a little over an hour from here. I may come up early and find a wifi spot to check in with work before meeting up.

G-Burg is forty-five minutes away, so Elevenish should work. BTW, Tina has caved and will be attending.

Wonderful! Sounds like we will have a good crew there. 1:00 PM is The Time. Erich, there are good signs around town to get to the Visitor Center. Plus, that link will get you right there too. Charlie has my cell number and if he had a real cell phone, he would be able to see where I am with Google Latitude. :-)

I just put in for a vacation day so Donna and I can come up to Gettsburg.
So far this is what the plan is: meet at the Gettsburg visitors center at 1 pm on 12/9/10 for lunch.
Where will we eat lunch?

Blue dog; don't get another speeding ticket.

Wonderful that you two can join us. Someone who is local might want to pick a place and make reservations. What is our headcount now?

Brad
12-01-2010, 09:18 AM
I think it looks like 8 of us at this point unless I lost count.

Well, we met and had a great time catching up on things. It turns out there is a small cafe in the Gettysburg park Visitor Center. So, we grabbed a table there and had lunch. It was great to meet up with everyone again.

Snow Miser
12-15-2010, 10:36 AM
It was a very nice meeting and lunch. And it was great to see everyone again!!! We should try to do this type of thing more often with MWOBS forum/STP members. And of course, in different parts of New England, etc.

Sounds like you guys all had fun. At least the pics look like Erich had alot of fun. A meeting a little more North would be cool....

I have heard there will be a special MWO event of some sort in January in the N Conway area. Would folks be able to come up for that? Or should we plan a RI or southern Mass member/forum event?

Hmmm... late January? That's what I'm looking at now anyway.

Would you be able to come for a RI, Mass or NH event?

As of right now I could make No. Conway in Jan.

Good seeing all of you.
Here's a link to some photos I took while at Gettysburg and some of our friends from the MWO forum.

Mass maybe, depends on the day. But it would have to coincide with being up in NoCo for some hiking. (Suggesting maybe weekend of the 22-23) Otherwise its a bit out of range for me to get to for lunch. :)

Snow Miser
12-15-2010, 04:24 PM
I will be up in NH Jan 21st to the 24th for an EduTrip. Could possibly meet Friday or Monday in North Conway if that's one of the dates for the special MWO event.

Brad,
RI or Southern MA would be fantastic.
