Monthly Meetings in NYC

Post by thelight » Wed Oct 26, 2011 8:33 am

Since so much interest is coming up thanks to HQ being on the history channel, we should capitalize on it!

I propose a monthly meeting in NYC, the heart of doom-town in a zombocalypse.

When: Second Wednesday of the month, 7PM.
Where: Damned good question. Let's start with the Sony Atrium on Madison Avenue between 56th and 55th streets (behind the Sony store at 550 Madison Avenue).
Who: Anyone interested that can make it
What: A meeting to discus Zombies, Charity, and Preparedness in NYC.
Why: Because it seems like a good idea right now.

Please let me know what you think about dates, times, and topics.

Edited to change meeting day/time to new day (From Mondays to Wednesdays)

Well, the last Monday of the month would be this coming Monday.

All: If you're interested in a meeting but can't make it, please post days/times that would work better for you. Right now the day/time of the meeting will be flexible, and we can always have special meetings for events and the like.
What are people's interests as far as meeting topics go?

I don't think I'll have mondays off till the new year.

Borrowing a page from the OWS people, perhaps someone could volunteer to setup a youtube channel or something like that?

We had the meeting last night and it went pretty well. We went over the basics of what Zombie Squad is, what Chapter 007 has done in the past, and where we might take it in the future. It looks like several people are hoping for a Wednesday meetup, so that's what I'd like to propose to the group.

General Meetings on the second Wednesday of the month sound good to people? We'll keep the 7PM time and Sony Atrium meeting location for the general meetings. Other events will be scheduled for different days and times. This means the next meeting will be Wednesday, November 9th.

Great idea! So the idea would be to record the meetings and upload them to youtube? I think I have a camera that can do that... I'll look into it.

I was looking for an excuse to get out and do something, but I work late every other Wednesday, and next week is that one. Any chance of a weekend gathering (in addition to regular meetings)? It'd be nice to hang out with fellow Squad members and not have to think about work the next morning. Not necessarily party-til-you-puke hanging out, but a bona fide night out with friends.

How many folks drive to this, anyway? I know parking anywhere in Manhattan on weekends is like shoveling floodwater, I would make it a quest to locate a Winchester next door to a train station in NJ. I was thinking Brooklyn to preserve it being an NYC meet, and there are some nice spots, but parking is only marginally better. I'm asking for ideas.

We talked about a wide range of items at last night's meeting. Here's a summary.
  • ZS is awesome, here's why...
  • We have a upcoming pub crawl! https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=149165311844178" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Saturday, November 19 · 12:00pm - 10:00pm)
  • There is a trip to "The Road" in PA coming up. http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 98&t=84674" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Friday, January 13 to Sunday. Carpooling possible/encouraged)
  • There is a winter camping trip in the ADKs coming up.
  • People want to shoot things. Let's work on a trip for that.
  • We need to do more outreach in NYC. Anyone have any connections to disaster fairs, community groups, etc?
The next monthly meeting is Wednesday, December 14th.

Sledgecrowbar et al, hope to see you at the pub crawl!

I wish I had stopped in on this thread sooner, November was nice weather IIRC. I'm getting over a cold or I would have loved to go to PA last weekend. It's downright terrible weather out now, I think I'll decline everything until it's back above 40 degrees again.

That might be my stuffy head complaining, though. I'm eyeing a badass Carhartt coverall for riding through the winter if I get cabin fever before it's warm again (which always happens, and it's a Very Bad Thing). It's confounding, what Klim wants for similar gear.

Being stuck inside makes me buy things on the internet.

::bump::

It's been awhile since we had a NYC meeting. Does anyone have any preference as to place or date for a June meeting?

TheLight and I have been brewing some plans for a glamping trip in Harriman Park to just get out of the city. Any takers? It would be a nice trip for folks who have not had a chance to test out gear and spend some time outside close by.

I did Harriman last year, but it wasn't glamping. It was a very good spot, but hard to get to, I wouldn't mind leaning towards the glamp side of it. I'm busy for the next two weekends, though, and working the Saturday after that. An overnighter would be fine that weekend, though.

I go out hiking from the city all the time with the AMC (http://www.amc-ny.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) young member hikes. Also lead 'em occasionally.

It's a bit too hot for anything right now, but this sounds like a fun idea.

In light of 90+ degree temps for next week WITH rain, I vote for the old meeting spot, Citicorp. If the AC works.
