Meetup groups in MA, NH or VT?
Anybody here from Maine? Would love to join in when possible.
Hey cindyb. I have been vacationing in Maine near Pemaquid light point on St John’s bay for many years.
Is this meetup still in the works?
Maine just announced that beginning July 1, people like me from out of town will be welcome to visit and will NOT be required to quarantine for 14-days if we present a valid COVID certificate.
My wife and I had originally set up a northern New England meet up for June 20 at our house in Concord, NH. We have assumed that no one would want to come until the Honey Badger thing settles down a little bit. Is that true?
Are any of of you in the “neighborhood” still interested in meeting here on June 20? What kind of format? Food, or not? Time frame?
Is the Porcupine Freedom Festival still on @thc0655 ??
Porcfest is still on.
I’ll get back to everybody Sunday night or Monday morning about a meetup this Saturday June 20.
Our northern New England meetup is on for this Saturday, June 20, 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm! Because of the Honey Badger Virus, we want to make some adjustments to the original schedule and procedures, so here it is.
We want to preserve our house as a “green zone” (virus free) so we want to limit trips inside to bathroom breaks only. The rest of the time we’ll be out on the patio or the porch. So if there’s bad weather, we’ll have to cancel. However, the long range forecast right now says a high of 88 F. and only 20% chance of rain. If we’re outside and appropriately distanced you’re welcome to unmask. Everybody should have a mask available though for those unavoidable close contacts. You might have to bring your own folding chair depending on how many people come. In fact we might have to limit attendance if it looks like we’ll have more than say 12-15 which would make distancing difficult on our patio and porch.
We’ll plan to eat a potluck dinner (everybody bring something) at about 6:00 pm. Come as early as you want starting at 4:00 pm and plan to depart by 8:00 pm. We’ll provide plates, bowls, tableware, ice, cups, glasses, etc. Let me know what you’ll be bringing to eat and/or drink and if things look unbalanced (all desserts, for instance) we’ll suggest an alternative to balance things out. Alert us to any food or drink requirements or prohibitions.
Send me a PM or an email to ask any questions you have, get directions (Concord, NH), and let us know what you’re bringing to eat/drink. [email protected]
We’re looking forward to meeting any of you intrepid PPers willing to risk an adventure!!
We had our first Northern New England meetup Saturday night at 7:00 pm by Zoom. We had a great conversation and plan to do it again Saturday August 1. We’ll host a face to face gathering with a potluck dinner at 6:00 pm at our home in Concord, NH and then the Zoom meeting at 7:00 to include those who couldn’t make it in person. If you’re interested, put it on your calendar!
Northern New England (self-defined) is having a potluck meetup at our house in Concord, NH on Saturday August 1 at 5:00 pm. We’ll be outside on the patio (except for trips to the restroom) for the whole time so this is “weather permitting.” We’ll eat about 6:00 pm so let me know what dish you’d like to bring. Send me a PM here or if you already have my email send it there.
For those who can’t attend in person, we’ll have another Zoom meeting at 7:00 pm. If you want in on the Zoom meeting send me your email and I’ll send you the electronic invitation.
As far as an agenda for the Zoom meeting, if you have suggestions for topics send them to me and I’ll get it organized.
We are in Northern Vermont and would be interested in this!
