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!

Meetup Plans:

We’re going to meet at 9:00 INSIDE the show.  We’ll gather at the northern entrance door and head into the show.

Parking at the show usually stinks when there’s NOT a rush – which there is sure to be this year – so get there, get parked, give’m your ticket and we’ll meet you inside!

We’ll probably try to setup a shoot meet-up as well – I know if I can get the guns I’m after I’m going to want to go fire them!  We’ll have details on that shortly.

You don’t have to RSVP to come but if you do we’ll know to watch and wait for you before we head into the show.  See you there!
