Meet and Greet at High Desert Middle School

With over 800 of us, I'm sure we wouldn't get close to having all of us there.

(I noticed some of you have two profiles, please delete one of them)

A meet and greet for the group at High Desert Middle School parking lot.

It would be a way for all of us to get together and meet each other. You can give me some of your ideas of where you would like to hike, camp, or whatever. Or we can just hang for a while and chat.

Bring a lunch.. Name tag, if you have one.

No alcohol please if either at a park or school.

[masked]) Just to let you know it is confirmed that we can have this at the High Desert Middle School parking lot.

    Thanks again for making. Had a good turn out, not all 80 or so came. Per the sign sheet we has 42 hikers. It was nice to meet a lot of new members. A lot of names to remember ;)

    How about a kayak camping trip on Waldo. Would have to be late in August/early Sept so no mosquitoes!!!!!! It's a fabulous place.

    I'd be there, but I'll be running in the National Snowshoe Championships at Meissner tomorrow.

    A good opportunity to ask for a $1 donation - that could cover meetup.com costs for some time.

      Way cool! Thanks Aaron. Very nice of you to say. But let's kind of all keep in mind that there is no free lunch and be happy to donate a $1. Give Aaron a buck and trust him to settle meetup.com dues.

      February 10, 2013

    • Nora M.

      Aaron, that really is a GOOD idea...maybe you could have a "donate a dollar and/or a hike idea" bucket!!!

      March 13, 2013

  • Nora M.

    What a fun idea!! I'll be dressed and ready to go to work from the meetup.

    can we have a brainstorming session for ideas and destinations? i would like to see some (one?) hikes planned around taking photographs, with an early (still dark) departure time. c

    March 1, 2013

    • Michelle B.

      Tom - I like that idea! I spent a sunrise at Crane Prairie last year and got some phenomenal photos. Patience and the desire to soak up the sun as it changes the landscape is definitely a must!

      You bet! That's one of the reason for this. Also, to get possible new Event Organizers. Some of the existing ones no longer do hikes, and I won't be able to do too many this summer. Also, I thought it would be good to have a "Level #/P" for photo hikes.

    If you like you can bring snacks to share, or just bring a lunch. Also, we will be meeting in the parking lot by the track. Bring a chair, or hope fully the weather will be nice to sit on the grass. There are some grandstands by the track too. This is a very laid back get together. I will print out the name tags from meetup.com and bring straight pins.

    Looking forward to it!

    Hey Ben-
    So how exactly, do we contribute some bucks?

    February 11, 2013

    • Barbara T.

      I can be in charge of the donations if that's ok. Aaron might be busy. Just let me know!

      1 · February 11, 2013

    • Robert S.

      There is a techy way to donate a buck or more if you won't be able to 'meet up'. Just click on the Pay Online Button about 4 inches down on the site's Home Page next to 'Member Dues, a dollar . .'

      February 12, 2013

  • Barbara T.

    Great idea Ben!

    Good idea! I have lived here for 18 years and though I know a lot of good spots I feel I have harly scratched the surface of all there is to explore! I look forward to sharing with all of you!

    I checked High Desert Middle School and didn't see anything on their schedule. So, as of now, that is the place.

    I am hoping that there will be some camping/hiking opportunities for this summer. Aaron mentioned a couple that he was considering. Can we suggest trips? In some cases the camp sites need to be reserved and reservations are being taken now.

    Hi, where is this located? I am looking to see if this is within walking distance as I do not have a car yet.
