This group is intended to bring adventurous and talented people together for challenging activities. An event might be as harrowing as joining me on an overnight backpack trip in the middle of winter or it might be as relaxing as playing a few games of Spades. I am open to members sponsoring their own events as long as they fit into the theme of this meetup group and are in the same general location. I will be posting activities depending on my schedule and interests on a regular basis. Depending on the risk involved with the activity (such as inviting people to private residences or handling weapons), prospective attendees may need to be screened by attending several regular events with the group. Here are some likely events: Spades, Euchre, and/or Hearts games. Small-group paintball games in a private wooded lot. Target shooting or archery or hunting. High-end board games such as Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, Twilight Imperium, Descent. A 2-4 mile walk/hike on trails in Patuxent River State Park. Practice survival skills such as campfire building, shelters, and hunting. LAN party with FPS games.
