Good June Geeks!
This is my now highly irregularly scheduled update on things happening in Westchester Geeks. What a great year! With almost 650 members, we continue to grow and build our community of Geeks here in the greater NYC region.
Last month we had the spectacular Geek Pride Day 2014- nearly 175 people showed up and we all had a great time. We already have begun planning for GPD 2015.
Now that summer is upon us, we hope to see you at some of the many events we are planning. Some will be outdoorsy and taking advantage of the sunshine, while some will be indoors and taking advantage of air conditioning. Either way it is going to be a long, hot , GEEKY summer.
Some of the events that we are looking at for the summer:
• Geek-O-Cashing- 22June at cranberry lake preserve. It is a lot like geo caching, but geekier.
• Westchester Geeks Writers Guild- A monthly meetup for those who either write or aspire to write. This Month’s meetup is 8 June and will hopefully inspire with a walk around Kensico Dam.
• We also will be kicking off more outdoorsy stuff with our weekly Monday night walk around the dam and the return of Stop Stagnation Sundays.
• Board games, Magic and RPGs abound at the many local hobby stores in the area.
• It is summer blockbuster season- from X-men to How to Train Your Dragon 2, there is something for everyone.
• It is con season this summer- Westchester Comic Con, Dex Con, Connecticutcon and the end of summer event WGGcon, hosted by our friends at the Westchester Gaming group.
All-in-all this is shaping up to be a great summer. Keep checking the meetup page for the most up-to-date calendar. If you have something you want to do, let us know. We are here to make your live more fun.
Take it easy,
Blair, Dina and the rest of the Star Chamber.
