* Looking for May, July, and future Montrose Area Potluck/Social Venues *

  • May 17, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Who might consider hosting upcoming monthly potlucks (or socials at local in/outdoor venues) for May, July and forward (we've got one lined up for June at The Lees' Hacienda) in the Montrose/Olathe/Ridgway (or even up on the Mesa or in Ouray) area? It seems that we have better luck getting people to attend on a Friday or Saturday evening, rather than a weeknight earlier in the week. But we don't HAVE to have it on a Friday/Saturday if another night works better for your schedule. Let's try to keep our great potlucks and socials going! We've had a lot of fun and it has allowed several new people to meet us and get fired up with some great ideas for new activities to get on our calendar. What interests YOU? Don't be shy. Our locals can tell you, we have some great cooks and a whole lot of enthusiasm! Everyone comes with something good to contribute. Won't you be the next host/hostess, or give us some new ideas for places for us to gather? Let's hear from you!

    I guess I have to make an exception to my offer, May is out for me. I will be out of the area on business from the 18th until after Memorial Day.

    May 17th is the Paonia river float. Maybe we could do something easy like pizza @ river bottom park here in Montrose after the float.

    I can host anytime if folks are willing to journey to Cedaredge.

    • Paul S

      If there is food, I'm willing!

      April 28, 2014

  • Suzy N.

    So, perhaps someone has an idea for May? If the weather would cooperate, we could do an afternoon/evening picnic or cookout somewhere, like Cerise Park in Montrose, Ridgway State Park in Ridgway, or... . .. ..?

  • Suzy N.

    OK, I think I will host the April potluck. TBA...

    Sorry for any confusion I caused by not following up sooner re: February Potluck. The Gladdings are not available to have the potluck at their home in February. Someone else is welcome to initiate the gathering, or as I mentioned earlier, we can wait until March. ......and March has a wonderful ring to it, does it not? :)

    • Lori L.

      Thanks Mary Jane. I don't have Lorena's phone number and I'm not authorized to make changes on these pages. Appreciate your help!

      Sounds fine. Thanks!

    Hey all! I will call Lorena and Mike tomorrow but neither of them have any regular access to a computer. Perhaps we should wait and have a potluck in March? We will be celebrating Jeff's 60th birthday with our kids in Breckenridge :) the weekend of Feb 22nd. I will post an update from the Gladdings tomorrow.

    February 12, 2014

    • Suzy N.

      Sounds good. Thank you for talking to your friends for us. March would be fine. We may have another member who will be willing to host next month.

      February 13, 2014

  • marti and john c.

    That's a great idea Lori!

    February 12, 2014

  • Lori L.

    Are we going to Lorena and Mike's house on the 22nd? Can someone post their address and change the date on this page?

    Lorena Gladding thought her WSA Feb 22 pot luck was posted on this Meetup site. She has limited access to a computer.

    January 31, 2014

    • Suzy N.

      She was registering her profile on a laptop last time I saw her. No profile? What gives? I will post it after she's registered for WSA, no problem!

    I'll probably have Sports Authority install the bindings tomorrow but they require 3 days! Wish I could take them to Telluride where they do them on the spot. I'll be up for some backcountry Tuesday and Wednesday, if not sooner. I'm going back for a 3rd day in a row tomorrow to the Storm King area (driving to Buckhorn Lake first) scouting for hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing opportunities--there's not much for open slopes up there but there looks some possibilities on Google Earth. The roads are definitely good for xx skiing up there. Just drive up Buckhorn road until you don't feel safe going farther or don't have chains. Then pull out the skis. I snowboarded for the first time today and this friendly guy snowmobiled my sons to repeat their trip down from Water Dog Peak.

    • Suzy N.

      The second being the County Highpointers site (very interesting site, listing Montrose County's highpoint as Castle Rock, just past Storm King) where an old 2007 trip report written by John Mitchler resides:http://www.cohp.org/c...­

      December 27, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      You rock for doing the scouting for us! Please share what you find so we can plan some outings for up in that area. I don't have backcountry skis. The ones I have should really stay in the tracks. I want to rent some BC skis to try and maybe develop some skills for more challenging terrain. Tired of falling on my face on the wrong skis! Drop me a line at my email: [masked]. I need to get your cell number again, lost it. :-( And we WERE talking about potlucks briefly here, right? LOL!

  • Suzy N.

    <cricket cricket> Anybody out there able to host for October? Maybe we should do something in an outdoor venue, or at one of our fine Montrose establishments?????

    October 13, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      Doesn't have to be a big shebang. A Halloween theme would be fun, though. Something on the 25th, 26th, or 27th?

      October 13, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      OK, NOW looking forward....

    Suzz its Fitzy I am not going to be able to make it, as I have a job interview, at least I don;t think so. How late do you all think you will all be there?

    September 18, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      OK, you're referring to our September event this Friday - Hard to say, but I don't think it will be a late night. Good luck with the interview!

      September 19, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      I won't be able to stay late, as I have to get up a little early on Saturday morning. It sure would be great to see you, though!

      Super! We'll look forward to having you join us!

  • Anne F.

    So 9/20 but no location yet?????

    September 14, 2013

    • Lori L.

      Suzy's working on it and should have the info up here shortly.

      September 14, 2013

    • Anne F.

      Thanks Lori, did you all go on a 14 hike? So much rain here but not like east slope

      September 14, 2013

  • Anne F.

    Can't offer my place but since I have your table David maybe I can come on Sunday. Suzy has been trying to get it to you. Any good veggie dishes or should I bring???? What about pups???? Not allowed????

    September 9, 2013

    • Suzy N.

      David, I apologize for not picking up your table yet. Life's been kind of crazy for me lately and I have been remiss. We can coordinate offline and get this thing back to you ASAP. Thank you so much for your patience!

      September 11, 2013

    • Anne F.

      Hi I gave avid my phone numbers, best to reach me at work m-f or always via email. Maybe two of us or anybody can meet half way in Delta????

      September 12, 2013

  • Suzy N.

    Sorry for any confusion. I changed the date on this page from the 1st to the 15th because no one had stepped up with a firm offer of their place for a September potluck. I believe that Marti and John Carlile will be offering their home for our next venue on Friday the 20th. This is "To Be Announced" officially very soon. We can look forward to that! I will be updating this event page soon, for October and forward so, please... Don't be shy!

    September 11, 2013

  • Anne F.

    Suzy are you backing packing in or what???

    August 29, 2013

    • Lori L.

      Hi Anne! As far as I know, no one has offered to have the potluck at their home yet this month. The listing says "looking for . . . " and I think Suzy put 9/15 as the date kind of like a placeholder just to keep it current on the board. Sorry for the confusion.

      1 · September 10, 2013

    • Anne F.

      Thanks Lori I will keep my open to see what happens with this. David, yes I am in GJ, give me a call w=[masked] h=[masked]

      September 10, 2013

  • Anne F.

    I thought that was when you all Montrosians were having a potluck??? I could be wrong, it would b the end time in my life that I was worn, so maybe it i you. lol

    I could host at my place for September. If we want to keep the Friday evening theme going, September 19th would be the Friday that would work for me.

    I've got July. Will post direction later as my address and your GPS won't get you here.

    May 10, 2013

  • Suzy N.

    So now we have tentative venues for July and August - the homes of Tom & Vickie Cannon in July, and Ron Stauffer's in August. We're keeping our potlucks rolling along. Love it!
