Default Central Pennsylvania Gather

This has been mentioned at the MSN Clan Fiend site and BPOI.

I am considering organizing a gather near Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Is anyone interested.

Local attractions include Hershey Park, Harrisburg, Gettysburg,Lancaster.The Amish, the Susquehanna river, the Appalacian Trail. Many others.

he time would be some time after school letsout in June and before it starts again in September. Also not the same time as Dragon Con. I am going to try to grt there this year.

Let me know.

Nice to see an early interest. Depending on when this is scheduled, we might have a few guests from California.

First we need to know who wants to participate.

Then we need to schedule a date or even several days depending on circumstances.

Then there are the activities and food, etc.

All the things depend on who will come and that backfeeds from when to do this. I am initially figuring at least over a non-holiday weekend with a key event each day.

Possible events:

A trip to Hershey Park
Some sort of search for fire lizard eggs adapted to the local forest rather than the beach.
If we get really desperate, a chili cookoff

That can all be voted on along the way.

I can guarantee home baked goodies.

One thing I will throw in there is that on one weekend in June my hubby and I will be hosting our annual back yard picnic (usually over a hundred peeps invited although not that many attend) so I will try and wait as long as possible before scheduling that (and of course I will post that online so if anyone wants to attend that you will be able )

If it is in July, this California peep and her family will be there. We might be able to make August... it depends on whether the boys school stays year round or goes traditional. I hope it will stay year round because I like having the "summer break" broken up in 1/3rds but it will be the district decision.

Question Re: Central Pennsylvania Gather

that's close for me, but since i cant drive and my parent won't let me lug them along, i guess i'm stranded fro the next 3-4 years, and its unlikey that i get to such events (even though i want to) unless a) i host one (not very likely) or b) it is within an hour away from my house (also not very likely)
sorry
