    The Boomers are the best! Can't say it's easy to dance in sawdust, but we made it work! ;)

      Elaine, when I got home that night (early morning) I was mortified to see just how red-faced and sweat-drenched I was! My hair was disgusting! :( But oh well, it was a blast!

  • Mark and J.

    Hey all, I can't thank y'all enough for coming out last Saturday night to rock out with us. We so appreciate this group's support in many of our gigs. This past Saturday was a special show and you heroes make it a success. A heartfelt thanks to all who came. Locking forward to Kathken in June. Also have another outside show July 20@ Keizer Rapids Amphitheater. Again, thanks for all your support! See you down the road... mark

      I had WAY too much fun in that tent! (not even alcohol related, just plain hyperactivity!). As always, you guys are the best! Can't wait for the next outdoor gigs - so cool! Thank you Boomers (all of you, beautiful wives included) for giving us such great music, dancing and a reason to get out once in a while!

      You guys were wonderful, Mark. Can't wait for the next event!!

    Welcome, Jared, Shannon and John!! And anyone "new" I missed! You will enjoy our little group. We are warm and welcoming, and loads of fun! (and periodically crazy.......)

    It was great! It was my first meetup and everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Quite the fun crowd.

  • Shannon

    Haven't felt well all day. Attempts to "will" myself back to health have yielded little success. Since only thing worse than cancelling 'my first time' with y'all would be coming and making everyone sick (literally), I must regrettably sit this one out. Can't wait for next shin-dig...PLEASE don't give up on me!!! Raise a glass for me!

    May 18, 2013

    • Shannon

      Feeling much better, thanks, Elaine. Can't wait for next outing!

      May 20, 2013

      Glad to hear it, Shannon :) There's lots of activities, so you can make the next one!!

    I got there a little after 8:00 and bumped into a friend of mine that I didn't know was going to be there. I looked around a bit for the Meetup sign and didn't see one. Unfortunately, looking at the tiny pictures on my cell phone didn't help me to find people. I'm looking forward to finding y'all next time!!

    If anyone is interested, Honeywood Winery is having a wine tasting tonight from 5-7 p.m.! Jared and I are going to go. We don't have a sign but you should be able to recognize me from my picture (which is not a music note) :)

    1 · May 17, 2013

    • Richelle B.

      So we're here but don't know who anyone is. We're playing pool. I've got jeans and a black top. Jared has jeans and a white top. Come say hi!

      May 17, 2013

    • Shannon

      Never 2 Late's from my neck of the woods...but I'm in for the night. UNLESS Richelle wants to quickly change into sock and sandals. Then I might be persuaded to attend! : ) (i hate emoticons, so u're special!)

      May 17, 2013

  • Shannon

    This'll be my first outing w/y'all so I hope there IS a sign!

    1 · May 16, 2013

    • Richelle B.

      I'm SO not ok with the socks and sandals btw, especially when the socks are pulled up almost to the knee. And I'm totally a new girl so no worries!! :)

      May 17, 2013

    • Shannon

      Yeah, kinda doubted Richelle was diggin' the s&s action. Thanks for the encouraging words, Jared, Richelle and everyone else! I'm looking forward to meeting what sounds like an exceptionally nice group of peeps! Question for anyone to weigh in on: 8pm was the original meet time, but sounds like quite a few of y'all are planning an earlier arrival? I'll probably be closer to 8, so hope it's not too overcrowded by then.

      May 17, 2013

  • Margie

    I'll be there by 7 looking for y'all and our sign. Of course, if Blanca and Richelle are table dancing, that will help a lot. ;-)

    For all you musical notes, I've added a picture of our sign. The tables are first come, so we can't say where we will be. The tent was packed full Thursay night. Just walk around to groups and ask people, "what is your sign"? Wait that might get you in trouble - just look for Blanca dancing on top of the tables - if we can talk her into it! ; ) Come early if you want to talk to people. I'll be there by 7 and blanca said she would come early...

      Hey!! Thanks for throwing me under the bus! I said maybe...or was it probably :)

    I've had a migraine for a few days, so I have to make sure and take enough drugs to go tmrw.! HA!

  • Blanca

    So I'm thinking if I'm getting their early (to hostess) that I may be needing a place to stay. Any of you ladies have a couch, just in case? I promise to get out of your hair by 10 on Sunday, I have an afternoon date with my yard that day!

    May 15, 2013

    • Bobbi

      Blanca, u r welcome at my place! I live near the half penny, and have a comfy hide a bed couch. Ill even fix ya a cup of coffee in the morning !

    Welcome all you new peeps! I have a T-shirt with a big note on it and was laughing thinking the same thing as Jared.

  • Richelle B.

    Hi My name is Richelle and we're looking to meet some fun friends to hang out with. My boyfriend Jared and I have my daughter every other weekend but we won't have her on the 18th so we can totally make it to this event! I'm 32 and he is 28 and we live in South Salem. We like to shoot pool, bowl, dine out, drink and have a good time. Let us know if there is a gathering of this group and where you will be so we can meet up! :) Thanks!

    May 16, 2013

    • Richelle B.

      Yeah this will be a fun way to meet new friends, as long as wel know where we're going! :)

      May 16, 2013

      Looking forward to seeing you and Jared at the Festival. By Sat., I'm hoping we will have come up with a definite area in which to meet.

    1 · May 13, 2013

    • Blanca

      I thought I stood out. Didn't know I needed a sign. LOL

      Thanks for mentioning that, Jim. I didn't know.

      May 15, 2013

    • Julie

      Is that in addition to getting into the tent in general or IS the tent the beer garden? Seems like there has always been a fee, but who knows? Can't wait!

      May 15, 2013

  • Blanca

    Ok, Ok, Ok..... I'll make a sign. What should it say? Should it say available? just kidding - it will be the meetup logo table tent IF there are tables.

      There are picnic tables near the band. Blanca, you do stand out, but you will probably be on the dance floor all the time so....

      I will just wander around looking for you all..... :)
