Hi there! We have had one meet-up so far. There were two of us, and we went for a walk at Vanderveer. I'd love to get more people together. As you can see, we have a pretty inactive team right now. I hope to get it going again.

Let me know of any ideas you have and times that work for you and we'll try to set something up.

Welcome to Spark!

I am brand new to, "SparkPeople" Do you have a group that meets? I noticed that the last post was before Christmas. I'm thinking the online and in person support is what I need!! I live in Blue Grass, but go to Davenport just about everyday. Hope to hear from someone soon! Thanks

just an FYI : funktastic 5 will be performing @ martini on the rock tonight (from 8-1) it's located off Blackhawk rd (near the Rock Island Kmart) it's free to get in - making it even more inviting :o)

I'll either be wearing blue or tan 5-inch platform pumps. most likely the tallest Black woman in the place *lol* if you see me don't hesitate to come over & say hi.

just checking in for an update - since I don't recall receiving an email or seeing a message board post.

just a thought - is anyone opposed to getting together for non-fitness related outings? I ask because a couple of my girlfriends & I get together a few times a month to see live local bands (funktastic 5 & soul groove primarily) We saw funktastic @ martini on the rock last night & immediately thought this we a fun little outing for a local spark meetup.

definitely count me in - I missed the last meet up because I was in Cancun. I'm really excited about the idea of meeting local sparkers :o)

I think all those places sound good.

A few suggestions:
Barnes & Noble at Northpark Mall to sit & chat over coffee
Duck Creek Parkway or meet at Village of East Davenport to go for a walk
Moline Library Coffee Shop
Bettendorf Library

Mostly trying to think of places within 15-20 minutes of any of the QCs.

Thoughts?

Anyone still interested?

I think that would be fun! A week night or weekends during the day would be fine.

Great! I'm glad there's some interest. Would a week night or weekend work better for people? We could go for a walk or have a picnic or both. I'd love to hear your ideas.

meeting other sparkers was the reason I joined this team. I've even personally messaged local sparkers, hoping to actually meet 1 or 2 team members - NOTHING. if we can get people together I'd love to meet up, support one another on our journeys & possibly share a few laughs.

I haven't thought of any dates yet. I was waiting to see if there is any interest. Let's wait until this heat wave is over!

I know this board is mostly dead, but I am wondering if anyone wants to have a little Spark get together. We could get together some day or night for a group picnic or a walk or something fun. Losing weight is hard, and I'd like to have a local support network. Is anyone else interested?
