This is coming up on Saturday at Noon!! I can't believe it is the end of July already! Who is planning on attending, out of curiousity?

I know I'll be there! I still need to figure out what I am bringing for the potluck...

I know there are members from that area. If you want you could carpool up from there. It would be nice to see the people from the other parts of our state too. It really isn't all that far.

Don't feel like you're overstepping anything -- I definitely want to help out and be a part of it, but I also work 10 hour days during the summer so I've got to recognize my limits.

I'd be happy to arrange times and maybe find out what attendees can bring for a healthy picnic meal.

Why don't you send me a SparkMail and we can maybe tag-team on the project?

I still have it in my calendar! July 24th. Redrocks. I'm going to go this week and look for a good meeting place there and do some walking on the trails. I still can't decide on the time and whether we should include food. BTVMADS could you help me decide this stuff because I may have overstepped your leadership role?

Thanks for the suggestion. But I really don't think there are too many down here. The closest person is in Chester I think and they would probably be closer to a Central VT location. I really didnt mean to make a big deal of it. I will most likely be having surgery around that time anyway.

KRISTIPEP, I think there will be rallies in other parts of the state, too -- maybe we should split this forum up into 3, one for Northern VT//Champlain Valley, one for Central VT, and one for Southern VT?

I have been MIA (and my stagnant weight loss proves it) and a meet-up to look forward to sounds great and would be a good motivator to get back on track.
July 24th is good for me. I will have just finished up two weeks of GS Day camp so I'll probably be tired as all heck but I'm game for anything.

LOVE IT. I loooove Red Rocks, and I go there all the time when the weather is right!

Any ideas on how we'd like to organize a picnic, transportation, fees, etc? I believe it's a 5 dollar admission into Red Rocks during the summer months.

Hi everyone,

This is my proposal:
*Sat. July 24th
*Redrocks Park in South Burlington.
*Here is the link to the park.
http://www.sburlrecdept.com/redrocks.htm
*I have walked on the trails and I love them. There is a pavillion. I am not sure if I have to reserve it, but I will look into in if we all decide on it.
*One more thing: I will be gone from July 10-17 to Maine on vacation. So, if you pick a different date when I am on vacation, then I won't be able to help organize this.I really want to go, so hopefully it won't be when I am on vacation.

Hey. I think a gathering a great idea. I'm new to sparks. From what I have seen on this site so far, i'm very impressed and am glad that I joined. I live only about a hour north of burlington. I hope this happens I'm the kind of person that needs support. This would be a great way to get it. I well keep checking in for more details. ~Darlene~

A get together sounds great to me, I am about an hour from burlington so that works, and I think that family or spouse/close friend or supporter would be good. and a potluck that is commited to being healthy, also, if we did a potluck, I think having the ingredients with each dish would be a cool thing to do too.

I think July is best for me - DD will be out of school by then. Then again, I'm in B'ton first week of the month anyway for my chiropractic appointment, so if it's just Sparkers, then I'm flexible. I would vote for families to come, however. Is there a fun run/event we could coincide with?

For anyone who wants to have a Spark rally in the Burlington Area:

We have some choices to make. We can start with the Month: June, July, or August. After I get a feel of which month is more popular with everyone, we can narrow it down to dates.

A few ideas that I have. We should go somewhere where there is a picnic shelter, just in case of the VT unpredictable weather. I think these all have pavillions: Redrocks beach, North Beach, Malletts Bayside pavillion, or Airport Park in Malletts Bay(we could walk on the causeway!), or Sandbar beach. If we go downtown on the Waterfront, I think we could go into the Boathouse if it is bad weather. Other suggestions?

I'll stop there, or it may become to overwhelming for everyone. Other things to think about later: should it be a pot luck, time of event, and should families come or just the Spark member?

All suggestions are welcome.

Burdfly,

the one in Chittenden County sounds good in one of the state parks, or down on the waterfront. We could go for a walk on the bike path.

I live in the NEK! And I think there is one other Sparker in the area, too. Is anyone planning on attending the Dandelion Run in Derby on May 22nd? www.dandelionrun.org/ My daughter and I are going to do the 5 mile walk. Perhaps we can have a NEK Sparkrally after the race!

ABSOLUTELY! I would LOVE to help organize an event in Northern VT! Anything I can do, let me know! I feel pretty obliged since I lead the Burlington team, haha.

I know there's a pretty big number of Chittenden Co. members now, but do we have any Northeast Kingdom folks I should keep in mind? I'd be more than happy to figure out a location that works for the most members!
