I'd rather avoid weekday lunch-kind of thing as it would be too limiting for time.

Let's stop posting on this thread and I'll start up a new one: February SparkRally Plans.

I'm going to kick out a SparkMail to everyone with a link to this new thread. I'm willing to go for the weekend of the 19th-20th...with a smidgen of reluctance as it IS a holiday weekend and many may head out of town or be otherwise preoccupied. But HEY, after all there may be THAT much more time free for a RALLY!

Keep your thinking caps on and let's see what we can come up with!

I haven't been to any kind of a rally yet. I've been inactive on the site really. I am active now and would love to get together. I work nights so I can work out pretty much anything.

Ugh! My weekends have filled up so quick. Next weekend is my last free weekend for a couple months. But, it's also Al's last free weekend for a couple months, so I'm not willing to open our house and impose on him.

I'd love to get out and try CC skiing or snow shoeing before the snow melts though!

I'm pretty much a single mom every weekend from now through May. I do have a few weekends with Al home to watch Alexis, but I know on the 22nd I have an evening commitment and won't want to be too tired.

I don't have a problem hosting a potluck, but we'd need to keep it fairly small, like under 10 people.

As most of you may know via WILLOW49's recent blog we have quite the challenge ahead...! So the likelihood of being able to be a part of a rally this weekend is slim...but I will be keeping an eye on things and see what happens and attempt to be a part if it's possible.

Couple of healthier restaurants to possibly consider:

Whole In the Wall, S. Washington Ave. Binghamton?

CyberCafe, Main St. Binghamton?

Don't know if anyone is willing to host a potluck either at their home or some churches might be willing to let us use their place if one of you are connected...?

Just a few more ideas...

I don't know if Greek Peak has CC skiing or not. That Highland Forest looks awesome, but it looks like it's over an hour away-might be a bit far for a day trip.

~Sledding or snow shoeing would be a blast-but we need snow!
~I think skating would be fun, though I haven't done it since I was a kid.
~A meal is good if we wanted to talk-we could always follow it up or start it with an activity.
~How about tubing or skiing at Greek Peak?

Love all those ideas...picking one has always been a challenge for me...lol! Except to say: don't own ice skates or know the first thing about skating. But I'm open to whatever the consensus turns out to be!

Sounds like a great idea to me!! I would likely have Alexis with me, whatever we do. She's generally a good sport though.

Long, long overdue!

Chenango Valley State Park has ice skating and (if we get more snow) sledding and certainly all their trails and roads for hiking / walking / running.

Other ideas...?

Are folks going to be free on MLK Day Mon. 1/17th?

Perhaps we can toss out some days to consider as well?

One of the questions in Julie's blog was what do we do to beat the blah's.... Me i crank the music and sing.. dance around..... But then i realized WE NEED A SPARK RALLY!! we haven't had one in awhile.. Why not get together where we can all talk about upcoming plans for the year..workouts..race schedules... Hype OURSELVES up!
