    John came up with this idea and mentioned it at our last meeting: Have a summer meet-up up of Washington State FanForces in a central location for a day of fun and meeting new friends. I suggested Leavenworth WA, because it is central and has great shopping! What does everyone think? When would be a good time? Should we post this on the other fanforces or plan it first? Feedback please!

    That is what we need to figure out! Maybe I should check out Leavenworth's website to see events...

    I think Mos Everett would be willing to make the trip! sometime between July 8 and July 30th would work best for me right now, I can't speak for the other Mos Everettonians. I will bring it up at our next meeting on March 6th

    Great idea. Leavenworth is a good place too. Only a couple of hours away.

    End of June would work better for me.

    I am not sure yet when I will be able to do something like this, the end of the school year is going to be crazy this year. I am moving into an appartment and my family is moving to Virginia and I will need to help with that some time around mid June.

    Mos Everett and Seattle people, start looking at all dates that would work, so we can have several to choose from!

    If we do go to leavenworth, we just have to walk the blackbird island trail. It's a Nature Walk that starts from a park right in town, over a wooden walking bridge and around blackbird island. It's very short and level, no grades from what I can recall

    EDIT: Adding map link

    Mos Everett discussed this tonight at our meeting. We really like the idea of Leavenworth and hope that location doesn?t change. We also compared our calendars and for the most participation from Everett, the last weekend in June (Sat. June 24th & Sunday Jun 25th) works best for us. We also plan to book rooms to stay in while there overnight so the earlier we pin down a date, the better the chance of finding a place to stay

    Hey, I say Oregonians are welcome! If they want to come up I say more power to them! It is just in such a central location, we figured they wouldn't care to drive so far. Like we are going to turn away any Star Wars fans!
