Coffee Talk: June to Dec Meet UPs 2013 Rev g

Hey Coffee Talkers,

This is a draft that has gone to friends and co-workers,

So it only has my event. It does not have those activities of Event

Organizers.   You can look on the site's calendar for those.

Many events are not yet on the calendar.

The most recent news is that starting in early July, Alex

will become an Assistant Organizer.

He is looking for places to go to for events.

I will be sending him an e=mail on how to be an AO.

I still need to do a memo saying what information is needed

to schedule an event.  Still on my to do list.

Here are some upcoming activities:

Where it says

"More information coming"
I will probably not get around to that
Until the 4th of July holiday because
I have so many other things going on
At home.

Most of those are around August and September anyways.

By July, I might start working on some things for 2014?

Remember that I go to the movies a week or so
After it comes out, so keep that in mind if
You want to see the movie earlier.

You do not have to go to the movie if you
Do not have the time to.
You can just drop by for a cup of coffee, conversation and
Go about your business as some of us are
Going to the movie.

Mike


Subject: Tentative June to December 2013 Events.

Sometimes movies do not come to local theaters so
We have to pick something else.

Some events might be cancelled due to weather or
Lack of interest.

June

Normally I - 95 traffic does not get bad until early to mid June.
I - 95 traffic has already gotten bad.

http://www.hudsonvalley.org/

www.hudsonvalley.org/

The events do fill up very quickly around then.
Tentative Sleepy Hollow Weekend
If I go, then on Saturday the 5th,
I hope to go to Phillips Manor
And “The Blaze of Jack o Lanterns” at
Van Cortland’s Manor,  525 South Riverside
Croyton on Hudson, NY 10520
If anyone else is coming then we need to plan
On the time that we are going to the individual
Event to register for them.

The Manor has a Welcome Center that I go to
For current information & it has a snack/coffee shop.
You are better off not parking in this Welcome
Center.  Take the road that is on the left of it.
There is a parking lot at the top and over to the right.
There is a scenic pathway from the Parking Lot to the
Welcome Center.
At night, if that parking lot to the right is full,
Then you go forward a little ways to a huge
Parking lot.  Still use the scenic pathway to
The Welcome Center from the Parking Lot on the Right.
There are torches on the pathway to light the way,
But I would encourage the use of your own flash light.


I usually Travel on Friday and check into the Hotel.  In 2012,
I went to the Extended Stay America Hotel in Elmsford, N Y.
(914) 347-8073.  It is a short ride to Sleepy Hollow.
Saturday is the main day to see attractions.

I might go to see another attraction like the graveyard on
Sunday morning before I head for home.

I usually drop by here again on the way home from Chiller
As a Rest Stop.
Two years in a row Halloween Weekend events were
Cancelled due to the weather.  So glad that I try to go
In early October.

18

King Henry the VIII Renaissance Faire in
Dodd Stadium Overflow Parking in
Norwich, Conn.
The last time that I looked, the website has not
Been revised to show this new Theme and location.
I was told and read about this on Saturday, May 18 at the
Guilford, Robin Hood Ren Faire.

http://www.ctfaire.com/

September 21 to October 20
1 pm to 5 pm
Or later if they have “Halloween Knights”
As they have had over the last couple of years
Closer to Halloween.
This includes “Zombies” walking around the
Faire grounds.

Look for me when and where Jayne Lee will be
Performing.  I always go to my Facebook
Friend’s performance.
Vixens Enguarde have fb me saying that they
Are planning on coming to this one.
They could not make the Spring Event.
They are a woman's group who perform Shakespeare
Mini Plays with lots of Swords and Whip Play.


25 to 27
Tentative Chiller Theater Weekend
In Parsippany, New Jersey.

http://www.chillertheatre.com/

With a McDonald’s on the way,
From the Convention.

Different kinds of events.

I will need to see how funds are next year to
See if we can go in around August or September 2014?
Salem is too crazy and crowded in October so I have
Stopped going then.
