37Re: When is the next local get together?
- Apr 17, 2002Hello,
I'm glad I found this group. I was hoping there would be an online
forum for Austin and central Texas cachers. Seeing it took me almost
eight months to find this I think we might do a better job of letting
other folks around town know about this resource, such as adding it
to the description of the next event cache or other new caches in the
On the topic of event caches, I would be happy to setup a simple get
together soon, along the lines of the Gingerman Happy Hour last year.
Are people interested in meeting for some beers and food at a local
establishment, even if there is not any caching involved? (My
schedule right now will not really allow me to setup any thing
elaborate.) If someone would like they could volunteer to talk about
or lead a discussion on a particular related topic.
What days of the week work best for everybody? The Gingerman was on a
Friday. Is this a good day? If so I would propose May 3rd (too soon?)
or May 11th.
Glad to meet y'all, Christian (chloew)
