    Thumbs up Beer and Wings anyone

    I need some opinions on what night would work to have a beer and wing get together in the Bangor area? I am proposing a Sunday night. The other nights that might work would be a Monday or Thursday. I've spoken to Geagans Restaurant and they will let me reserve if we have enough people. If there is interest I'll post it as an event cache on Geocaching.com. I believe the way it works in other area is you get to count it as a find the first time you go. If there ar subsiquent events. Like every 2 or 3 monthes for instance then you can't repeat. It would still be nice to see folks every once in awhile. Post back and give me some ideas who is interested, or e-mail me. mainiac1957@excite.com

    Thanks , Brad

    I never thought of that. I guess if it was on a Sunday it could be anytime. Late afternoon or early evening. Or whenever the majority wants. I live here in town so I can go at anybody convieniance. We want to be responsible and not have anyone having to drive after too many beers. Darn... being a grown-up sure sucks. A Sunday in July or August. The 18th, 25th, or the 1st work well for me. Soon as I get some feedback I plan on posting it as an event on the web site. I await your posts. Thanks, Brad

    I would try to make it but can not make any promises without a date. But I know how it is trying to arranged a get together. Sometimes you need to get your feelers to see if you have enough people that want to attend first. If it is on a Sunday I would say the earlier the better for me and probably better for others too. It depends on how far people are going to drive to get to Brewer. Then they will have to drive home to be at work for the next day.

    Don't pick a Sunday night. And I mean NIGHT.. afternoon is good... but the Beer part.. ummm, some cachers (read: ME!!) have a small child that couldn't get into most pubs. Or.. try to find a 3-day weekend?? Dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

    Most Sundays are good for us. We do have a couple of commitments in Aug. on the 8th and 22nd. My personal preferance would be Thur. Aug 12. My geocaching brother from England will be here then, and he would love to attend.

    I like the idea, and have been pondering what options we could do to benefit the most people.

    A typical was of using it as an event cache can be found here: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...d-ad183547dacc

    An alternative would be to just post it here on this web site and any other locations/forums availabale, and we could be flexible with days, or even locations. We could pick 3 cities and alternate or something.

    The event method is good because word will get out to cachers who don't visit this web site via there nearest cache list. plus, regular participants can have it on their watch list and be informed of the next date. Plus, you can log it as a find (Only once) - But we're only talking one find, do the numbers matter that much?

    The alternative method is nice because we can easily edit dates and locations. If we decided to do another city, you would need diving intervention (an ok from an approver) to edit the event coords accordingly.

    I am middle of the road on my feeling for this. In some ways it'd be great to have it in 3-4 cities and rotate around, so that different people attend, but having the direct gc.com connection is nice, too.

    If a decision is made to just have it in Bangor, someone else could have one in another city which is fine.

    We can always try it as just a get together and go from there? Pick a night and We'll do our best to be there!

    Exclamation A Day?

    Thanks Brdad for the input. Now I'm more confused than before . I like the idea of someone else (or me) posting one in a different city, and rotating months. I do think gc.com is the best place to start since many still don't know about our new site. I will put a blurb about gm.org on the event site. Then any we do in the future we could do from here. I spun the magic wheel of dates and picked Sunday August 1st at 2:00 PM at Geagans in Bangor. No matter when we have it, there will be some who can't make it. I think I'll just say 2 till whenever, and call it good. Look for the post on gc.com soon. I also still plan on a September picnic at Dorothea Dix park.
