Holiday meet ups

Started by MikkBear in Upstate Ursae 3 weeks ago
Hey, I havent gotten a chance to meet up with anyone from the group, my extended biological family has declared the covaids too dangerous to do holidays this year. I was wondering if there was any interest in a Christmas/ Thanksgiving celebration amongst the bears. 

Sounds like a great idea. The main issue is space. @firemarshalbear  , is there any possibility of your fire station being up for renting their space? 

Any other ideas from folks in the group?

I wish I could. No hall rentals currently cuz of the fear bug. My house isn’t big but I’d be more than willing to host a bunch of bears!

We are up for it if we can find a place to meet.

I should preface that I’m a bachelor and my house kinda sucks without a woman’s touch. :D

My sister in-law runs a coffee shop in fort plain. It could be an option, but that's probably further away from most of you.

Depending on how many are interested we might be able to host. Could probably handle 15 to 20 folks

My house is plenty big, and my yard is even better, only drawback is that I live way the hell out in taberg

Hey upstate bears, I've seen your meet up threads before and I'd like to join up with you sometime.  I'm based in NJ but have a place over in Hamilton County.  If the timing ever works out that we're upstate while someone's have a meet-up, I'll travel out west to join you.

We would prefer a Saturday, my woman works on Sundays and she would want to join us

Yeah I think Saturday would be best for me as well. If I have my little one, I wouldn’t have to leave early to drop her off. I go to work at 11 pm as well Sunday night. 

@RicochetBear yeah man. We’ll definitely be having more meet ups in the future.

We have children as well. Obviously this will be a family friendly event. We have a very large yard, and fire pit, so if a little cold dont bother yall we could have a fire, got plenty of wood. My neighbors are all cool about fireworks and guns, and dont believe in the covaids so they wont be rats if we have too many bears

Also, not that I think I have to mention it to bears but, i would greatly appreciate everyone maintaining a level of sobriety that you understand to be socially appropriate in front of children, as this is a  family event and we want everyone to feel welcomed. Things to bring ; a dish to pass, warm clothes (we live at a pretty decent elevation on a hill it gets cold up here), a chair ( we dont have many) and a single  small (less than 1 Rogan tall) trinket or something you've made, bear themed, that you can part with, we will all pass this item to another family of the den, this is a tradition of my ancestors when meeting new people as a token of friendship

So is the meet up outside? Is it ok if we show up earlier than 4 if we come.with a long drive  and little kids we would probably be leaving by 6.

Inside / outside hopefully weather permitting. I have a fire pit. You can arrive early if you'd like we have kids too. I'm not posting my address on here though so if you want to come please hit up my cell, I left the number above
