Title: Virginia Meet and Greet Gauging Interest
Post by: VB-Milling on June 29, 2021, 09:20:02 AM
Seems like there are a fair amount of active forum users within a few hours of each other, but scattered all over VA.  I would like to make it to the FF pig roast sometime, but probably not the next couple of years.

Gauging interest for some type of late fall/early winter VA meet and greet.  Open to all, but I'm calling on the Virginians I have seen around FF, but have yet to meet.  I'm sure many of you already know each other and converse outside the forum.

I should probably mention that I'm also soliciting ideas for a place to meet and potential dates.  I can volunteer my place, but I live in a residential neighborhood  :D

I am with btulloh :) what neighbors :)

I am definitely interested. VA is anywhere from 6-10 hours for me :) sometimes I like to take the scenic route.

One question is would it be a kid friendly gathering. 6 year old.

Very far (263miles).  That's northwest of DC...I'm by the North Carolina border in Virginia Beach.

You could plan a wheeling trip on the way down!

Guess it's kid friendly if you want your kids being influenced by a bunch of hard working guys who play with big kid toys.  ;D

He could drive around in our forwarder and pick up logs  :D.  

I'm thinking that you are missing quite a few virginians, Don is not on there to start, I'm not on there, someone else or another.

You sure are correct.  I used the member search function and some people probably didn't show up.  Lets try this again with Virginia as a keyword in Biography.

@nativewolf (https://forestryforum.com/board/index.php?action=profile;u=24089)

I tried searching "VA" and "Virginia" in searchable location and neither brings you up however I can clearly see you are VA when I click on your profile.  Not sure what's broken there.  Makes me wonder how any others I'm missing...

No one has a searchable location unless they choose to be, and I am thinking searching out and then publicly tagging people for this is not something I'm going to condone.

Apologies Jeff. I removed the tags.

I'd like to attend, but an allergy to blue will preclude attending.

Looks like we have enough interest to move forward.  I'll wait a couple more weeks before suggesting a date/place/time.
Title: Re: Virginia Meet and Greet Gauging Interest
Post by: VB-Milling on July 21, 2021, 09:13:44 AM
Throwing out 3 dates for the Virginia Meet and Greet (open to anyone that wants to travel further of course)

October 23, 2021
November 6, 2021
November 13, 2021

All the proposed dates are a Saturday.

Venue has yet to be determined, but its either my house in Virginia Beach, VA 23454 or within 5 - 10 miles.

Trying the poll option although I didn't realize it doesn't allow for multiple selections

Please post up if multiple dates work for you.

Subscribing.  

It would be helpful if you put out an agenda of some sort.  I can drink beer with buddies a stones throw from me (NJ) but if ya'll are talking about somthin I might learn......well, then I might make the trip.
