Polling all members!

  • Under the header, first select More

    then Poll, Then choose!, PA (map)

    41.203323 -77.194527

  • >> MORE << Right under the header to the right of the middle.
  • I posted four uber quick polls when I first started the group asking members what activities they most interested in, cost, day and time. But that was back when the group was only about thirty members. Now we're over a hundred strong with more nerds finding their way here every day. So, I'm bumping the pollS so that I can get a more accurate gauge of member interests now. So, just under the header hover over More, click on polls and give me an idea of what types of activities you'd prefer. You'll need to do that each poll seperately as I didn't see a way to include all four questions in one poll. Please take a minute to stop by, point and click and I can get busy organizing things! And don't worry if it's only you that wants to discuss who should play the next Doctor. I can absolutely guarantee you that it's not just you, you're just the first to answer that in the polls. And yes, we have a theme song. For those of you unfamiliar with it allow me to present (dun, dun, dun!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO6eydRPpyU

    How do I go about seeking out interest from people for different events. I would like to plan some things but I need to know what would best suit people as for date/time and interest before I can negotiate with people.

    August 7

    • Rae

      Oh yeah, of course! But I don't want to pay for an event for 2 that might have been offered at a discount with 5 people. That would suck! Lol

    • Smiles A.

      True! lol

    Hey Smiles! I have 3 more ideas! Lazer tag & mini golf at Carlisle Sports Emporium, Zip line & Paint ball at Ski Roundtop, or zip lining at Refreshing Mountain in Lancaster.

    Just thought with Summer coming more physical kind of activities would be fun!

    • Smiles A.

      I'm definitely going to be posting these activities Rae. I just need my new work schedule.

      1 · May 20

    • Rae

      Yea!!!!! Lol :-)

      May 20

  • Rae

    Oh and I forgot... You can get a groupon for the sports emporium. $19 for $30 worth of fun, AND you can still use the groupon to buy a package and save money twice! <3

      Wow Rae, this looks awesome. I'm already saving the dates in my calendar and I've requested information so that I can tell people where to register and how much for the different events as well as planning for parking.

    I love faerie fest, but a lot of the faerie art is sexual in natural. (half naked, sultry poses, etc.) My son can't handle that kind of stuff. It's a shame really. I absolutely loved the woods and finger chalk thing, and the telescope. And the music! <3 But alas, we much wait for the Renaisance Faire. sigh....

    I'm not doing this right. Can't scroll to the poll link on my app. Wanted to suggest the Faerie Festival at Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock. It's $15/person, but you can come in costume and have all-day fun! Last wknd of April. http://spoutwood.org/fairiefestival/2016-fairie-festival-april-29th-may-1st/
