Organizing the First Utah Preppers Meetup

We’ve been thinking about this for a bit, now it’s time to put it to the test – Who amongst us would be interested in having a prepper meetup?  The first one would be informal, a meet and greet, there we would decide what kind of format we wanted future meetups to take.  Future meetups might have presenters on a prep topic, could be a lead discussion, demonstration of certain technique, prep poetry reading – whatever.  Although this will be sponsored by Utah Preppers, we want to invite other regional bloggers on prepping to come along and invite their readership as well.

We’ve had some interest expressed now we would like to measure it.  We’re thinking after the holidays, so some time in January.  We’ll never get a consensus on the night to do it, but what would be better?  Tues/Wed/Fri?  We’ll try to let the majority rule here :)  So here are the options: Jan 13, 16 or 22.

Please let us know if you’re interested and what date would work better for you!

  1. I would be interested in this. I don’t really have a preference for which night, though I’m leaning towards Tuesday nights (unless Mutual changes nights).

    I will lose interest in this quickly if it turns out to be a litany of how the government is failing, thieving or otherwise screwing things up. This is a given.

    I’m much more interested in how to prep for disaster. Personal, local, national, global or second coming.

  3. It looks like we’re leaning towards Tuesday and it looks like there’ll be a decent turnout. We’ll shoot for either very south salt lake county or very north utah county. We’ll throw some ideas up very soon.

  5. I think those date work for me. As for format I think for the first one, a fire starter light off might be fun. See which fire starter (Gerber, Metal Match, etc.) can light a vaseline soaked cotton ball the fastest.

    As for a location, a friend suggested that a Library might be a good location for an initial meeting. I was thinking that Cabelas might be a good location. It is in the northern end of Utah County. They even have conference rooms which we could likely book.

  7. This sounds like fun! How big of an event would it be? If all the Utah preparedness/food storage bloggers invite all their readers you could be in for a TON of people showing up. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
