How can we view the team maps? I am near McHenry IL and work all day but getting together with team members sounds fun. I'm in if I can find a meeting I can make :)

I'm in Galesburg and would make the 45 minute drive to Peoria to meet some fellow Sparkers :) I'm also retired and am very flexible.

I am bumping up my previous post!! Still looking for some more interest in Peoria. I am retired so able to meet during the day. As soon as I hear from others, we can set a place. Any ideas?!

I'm in south-central IL, would be happy to meet with other sparkers anywhere between Mt Vernon and Mattoon/Charleston, or west to the Highland area. Don't travel east that much, but if it's not more than, say, an hour away I'd be excited!

I'm interested in getting together also. I'm near the St. Louis area.

How do you add yourself to the TeamMap? I looked at it and there aren't many people on it. I didn't a link or button that said anything like "add yourself".

oh, i will have to bring this up. there are a lot of city teams, my city team meets monthly anyway, all though turn out isn't always great i try to make it! just search the teams to see if there is one near you, or you can always make one too!

Keep on keeping on!

Is it being announced somewhere where they are having get togethers or are we supposed to arrange our own?

We are supposed to wear our spark shirts and if possible meet other sparkers. How do we know if anyone is near each other?
