MDF Sammamish chapter meeting #2 set
« on: February 08, 2016, 08:34:25 AM »
Hi folks...
We've got meeting #2 for our new chapter set. Tuesday March 1st, 7pm at the Issaquah Brewhouse in Issaquah.

http://www.bing.com/mapspreview?&ty=18&q=Issaquah%20Brewhouse%20Issaquah%20WA&ss=ypid.YN925x17910505&ppois=47.5301818847656_-122.037200927734_Issaquah%20Brewhouse_YN925x17910505~&cp=47.530182~-122.037201&v=2&sV=1

This will be an important meeting as we will discuss the official forming of the chapter, the official name of the chapter and the direction/focus we'd like our new chapter to take for the future. We'll also discuss the banquet chair positions and who would like to be a part of those.  Dan McKinley will be there again to help get us started.

We chose the brewhouse because they gave us a nice, quiet back room to meet in at no charge to us. Food and drink will be available to order from them, but obviously that's not free.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to pm me or Jim jkthomps. Either of us would be happy to assist. We look forward to seeing all of you out there.

Hey guys, Unfortunately I am not going to be able to make this second meeting.

I am up for whatever name and would prefer to focus on Mule deer but am open to splitting our focus if that is what the majority wants.

Sorry I can't make it.  Good luck and looking forward to this.

We can't let Gig Harbor have a better turnout. Spread the word and let's have a good time!

would a 15 & 9 year old boys and a 13 year old girl find anything interesting at this meeting or would they feel out of place because no other kids ever come to these meetings?

There weren't any kids at the last meeting but it was at a bar. That was the 1st meeting we had. This one is at a bar/brewery too, but it's in the back room and I'm not sure if kids are allowed. I would imagine there will be some get togethers or events that would be kid oriented. Just not sure on this meeting.

I would be interested in taking my 12 year olds to a meeting in the future. I think kids would have more fun doing volunteer work outdoors.

I'll be there.  Sorry I haven't been on here lately...this time of year is brutal for me time-wise!  Lucky if I even get a chance to look at emails, much less anything fun.  So, if there are ever any questions, concerns, ideas, etc that I'm not addressing, send me a PM, email or text so that I know to take a look at it.  See you all the 1st.

Hoping for a solid turnout. The back rooms are pretty good sized, so we need to fill it ;).

This will be one of the best MDF meetings ever ;). We will draw a few names out of a hat during this meeting. The lucky winners will have their choice of a Hunting-Washington.com decal, similar to the ones in this photo.

Yellowdog sells these on the forum, and I  can't think of a better way to spice up the night.

Be sure to make this meeting for your opportunity to win one of these amazing decals!

*note - 300 Remington Ultra Mag in photo is for illustration purposes only and not eligible for this drawing ;)

I called the brewhouse to confirm our reservation. Plenty of room, so bring your friends and family. Told them we are still looking at 15-20 people... hope that holds true.

I reserved the room under Jim/ Mule Deer Foundation, just fyi.

Hope all goes well tomorrow, sorry I am going to miss it.  I will be at the next one and might have at least one more guy to join and hopefully a couple.
