Next Step in November - Raliegh Chapter - Nov 9th

Please use this link to RSVP for the event. Thanks 

The Eastern NC Prepper group is almost 150 member group for preppers and those that wish to learn more about the lifestyle that live in eastern NC (however the group is open to anyone). The group is divided into the Main or Raleigh Group that meets every 2nd Saturday in Raleigh and the ENP – Coastal Edition which meets in Wilmington last Sunday of every month.

The main objectives of this group is:
- Networking with fellow preppers
- Advancement of the art and skill of prepping
- Dispelling some of the myths and stereotypes of preppers.

The group is fairly causal about rules. The main rules is no religion, no politics, no bashing groups based on sexual, racial, age, or religious alignment. Pretty much use common sense and act like a adult. Remember even if your off in a corner making comments, you never know who is listening and don’t assume certain stereotypes just because they are at the meeting. You are there to learn about prepping and networking with fellow preppers.

    About the November Meeting - Just a quick reminder the next couple of meetings are going to be about the group dynamics and what the group will look like moving forward you can review the agenda and see what chances are going to be talked about. Already it looks like their will be a meeting requirement to remain a active member of the group (those that have good reasons will not be place on inactive and then removed from the group if the not attendance continues).

    Here is the link to the November agenda to review (if you want to offer feedback before the meetings or because you can not make them feel free to do so).
