Hello team!! We have a scheduled meet up finally! We will be meeting on June 25th at 9am at Northwest Park in Windsor at the Nature Center. Here is a link to the map:

_id=251

This is a first of hopefully many future meet ups. We will be posting those here as we get them scheduled. We are also trying to do them at several locations across the state so if traveling is an issue, hopefully we can do one close to you. If you have a suggestion as to parks that are nice in your area, please let us know. We will be there for 1 to 1 1/2 hours depending on the trail we decide to take. Hope you see you there!!

Deb

I need to know who is interested in meeting up and where you live. I want to make sure I find a place that is in the middle for all of us. I live in Northford, which is near North Haven/Wallingford area.

what time are you looking at for the Hop Brook meet up?

Native
Co-Leader for Walk 1000 Miles in 2012

****************************

When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still;
be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
-- as it surely will.
Then act with courage.

Give thanks for unknown blessings

JENNIFERLYNN76 These are walks that are scheduled. There is already a sign up for the April 1 walk, and I will be posting sign up for the other ones as the dates get closer. I am trying to get the team meet ups at least 2x a month.

Can't wait. I lvoe softball. I played for years as a kid and played on an adult team the last couple of years. It would be great if enough people with gloves and bats showed up for a pick-up game on those dates where indicated that's a possibility. I will be attending as many of the meet-ups as possible, looks like all but the Warrior Dash are on Sundays which works perfectly for me. I'll have to start saving my pennies for the flea market. Maybe I'll bank my money jar for that, hmmmmm???
