I plan on attending that night. What kind of things will we be discussing? I would love to get involved, and have volunteered with a few organizations and have felt their mission wasn't quite clear enough. I want to do what I can for the deer and really look forward to this meeting. Is there a way to become a member at this meetup?

This.
I am local and interested in attending. Do I need to join anything prior to this?

 You don't need to join prior. As far as joining while we're there,  not sure how we'd do that. Maybe Dan has an answer. For the record, you can join up online at www.muledeer.org

I'm hoping Dan McKinley(MuleDeer) will chime in again and say for sure, but I'm sure the majority of talk Tuesday night will be in regards to what is involved in starting the chapter.

Gaslamp huh?  About 20 yards from my work.  Maybe I'll stay late and have a beer if you guys don't mind a bowhunting sheep addict.

If you didn't, I'd have come knocking on your door.

Hey everyone, sorry I cannot make it. Lost my person to let puppy out of crate this evening. Will join the chapter online this evening (or at least www.muledeer.org if the chapter isn't listed yet). See everyone next meeting. Post some meeting minutes if possible.

Please don't leave me in the crate, come home right away after work!

I've got 20 or so who are either coming or are possibly coming.

I'll probably get there early and grab something to eat if anyone want to join. If I go home first, I'll probably not feel like making the drive from Mill Creek!

Depending on traffic, I should be there a little early and grab a bite also.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I should be there by 6:30 or so and plan on eating there as well.
I see a bacon cheeseburger and fries in my future.

Who am I kidding, there's pretty much always a bacon cheeseburger and fries in my future. This is no special occasion.

Sorry for the last minute answers, but my life gets crazy about Jan. 1, and doesn't let up til June!  You don't have to be a member to be there tonight, or even to be a member of the chapter, for that matter, although the vast majority are.  If you want to sign up, come by our booth at the Puyallup show this week, or you can join online, or do what most do, and that is renew at your local banquet each year.  That's the easy way to remember!
We'll talk about what it takes to make a chapter click, what our mission statement is and what we've done locally, as well as what needs to be done, plus, I'm happy to answer any questions for all of you tonight.
I'll have some magazines and lots of answers for you all, and look forward to talking about what we can do!  Leaving Tacoma shortly to head that way for some dinner!

Came down with a nasty cold over the weekend, so I wasn't able to make it, but I am interested in future meetings.  Hope tonight's meeting was a productive one!

Really good meeting tonight. Sorry you guys couldn't make it. I think there were 18 people there plus Dan and his wife. The biggest chapter kickoff meeting ever for Dan. Good stuff!! We need to come up with an official name and we need to see who is interested in becoming banquet and chapter chairs. If you're interested, please chime in. Hopefully we can all work together to make this happen.

I agree. Thanks for pushing this along.

Everyone needs to give their suggestion for a Chapter Name.

My suggestion is the Snoqualmie Chapter.
