CNY/WNY meeting?

Post by MikeM » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:34 am

So, the Northern, Eastern and urban feeding ground are all having meetings. Any interest in setting up monthly or bi-monthly meetings in the CNY or WNY area?

I'd be up for traveling to the Finger Lakes area or up to Syracuse for a central-ish location.

Chime in and let me know what the general feeling is on this regional expansion.

Mike,

I'm up for a WNY meet. Maybe some place between Syracuse and Buffalo.

Sounds like the interest is definitely shifting further West rather than central.

Maybe we need a dedicated WNY meeting?

The issue I have is that I'm a solid 3hrs from Rochester so this would not be a meeting that I could make regularly.

Anyone want to step up and organize a Roch/Buff area meeting, and I'll focus on the Syr/Bing/Utica area?

Meet and greet, talk about trip ideas, charity ideas, and how to get more members.
Also a great chance to get non-internet savvy individuals involved and to meet in a safe public environment before we ask people to wander off into the woods with us :twisted:

Heh.

I'd also be interested in a meeting out in this half of the state. I'm not too sure about my odds of making it, though, so I won't lobby too hard to have it held close to Buffalo.

Also, welcome to matt131! Good to see somebody else out this way.

All,

This sounds like it could have some merit; it is unfortunate that the majority of 007 lives on the East side of the state. The limited number we do have in the central and western side of NY; I would say Rochester is the median for both Buffalo, and Syracuse. We just need to get more people involved and join ZS, so we can have regular meetings/get togethers.

I will not commit to anything, such as being a meeting coordinator; but I do live in the Rochester area if that helps.

Thoughts?

I think the issue comes down to the huge spread between Central and Western NY, which makes such a thing as monthly meetings difficult.

I think a meet and greet, centered around an event (a gun show, movie, convention etc) would be the most feasible venue at this point. That way there are several reasons for the meeting.

This is something worth planning for the Spring if someone knows of a worthwhile event.

Mike, if you do manage to hold together a meeting, I'd like to be there for the first one.

So will I. Inter chapter co-operation and all. Doesn't hurt that I (and my chapter) are in Niagara Falls.

Hey just a thought i know that since the area is such a long distance between each of us. for me i am 2 hours away from buffalo as well as rochester. I was thinking we at least get a group listing together

maybe tell us the area you are in so we can pin a central location that everyone can drive to. say a park or campground someplace.

i wont tell you where i live exactly but i will narrow it down to a 20 mile radias from a town that is shown on any map. of course you who live in the citys could easily say i live in rochester or buffalo. i will at least say i live near Hornell NY. but i can be anyplace within 400 square miles so my OPSEC is still in place.

another option if everyone is interested would be a live chat room session for a meeting something like that we may not be able to get face to face like our eastern counterparts but we can at least get to know everyone and their skill sets.
