Interested in Meeting in Jan/Feb for a Social Even

As a New owner of a Montana and after finding this GREAT forum, I thought it might be nice to get together, and meet up for a "social" sort of event to think about the Spring and Summer ahead.

In talking to my local dealer, they may help in providing a meeting place. I'm thinking it might be nice to have a "potluck" or such and just spend time enjoying the time, getting to know each other.

All just in the thinking stages.
Date: Sat or Sunday in January or February
Time: Mid to late afternoon.
What to bring: Passing dish, drink, etc
Cost: minimal

My dealer is located just West of Ann Arbor, MI. It would be my hope to get them to help out with the cost of the main course such as a ham.

Thoughts and ideas welcome.


Please let us know, if interested.

Dave and Vicki.

Sounds like a great idea and it's cool that you're working out the details. I just hope there aren't too many of us in Florida, Texas or like us Arizona. Wishing you good luck at working it out.

Sounds like fun. But like Dick said, sorta hard in Michigan when we're mostly all down south. Now if your interested, you can come bring a dish to pass right here, next to the pool on our Lanai and we can sit in the nice warm temps and meet. However, if that don't work, we'll be back at the campground in Ionia in June, come see us there.

Goodness.....Now there's an idea. Let's meet someplace warm........

On a serious note: Might not be able to drive a large gathering. However, even a small gathering of folks, would
be enjoyable. One day, we too may be able to enjoy the warmth and sunshine during the winter months.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Post it. Pick a day.

Nope, cannot attend unless the winds blow us back to Michigan, but, there are others there. Some read and never post, so we may not be aware of them.

But, there is that issue that many of us are in warmer climes.

The way things happen here on the MOC is that we post. JUMP IN!

Our little holiday luncheon here in Tucson pulled 6 couples, we had a nice meal in a moderate priced restaurant. Small, cozy, pretty good eats that no one had to prepare or clean up after, and I believe we all had a wonderful visit.

That thing about 5 of the couples being full timers or retired full timers and little ole Carol and Al only being extreme long timers, interesting. LOL

Happy Holidays.

Hi Dave and Vicki,

You have wonderful hearts and I'm glad you're one of us; excited and enthusiastic campers. However, I have to agree with most of my forum members, a ham in cold weather is just a ham.

Lots of luck,

My thoughts are unless this is an actual rally or a place where several campers are camping together (Not likely in winter), it might be easier to meet at a local restaurant. I think it would be especially difficult to have a potluck. Also, people generally like eating out and don't mind paying for their own lunches. JMHO. In any event, since we are now out west for the winter and are from NY I guess it doesn't involve us.

I'm guessing your dealer is in Chelsea?? We are just a bit west of there and, unfortunately, we are
spending the winter here in Michigan. The past 10 yrs. we have been in Texas.
The idea of getting together sounds good but it would be hard to pick a date more than a couple
days ahead as mother nature could change plans in a hurry.
I'll keep reading if there are any updates. And too, I think a restaurant would be best.

Len and Virgie. You're correct.

I plan to stop by the dealer tomorrow and check to see their level of commitment and/or willingness to assist in
any gathering.

Sounds like, based on those that have contributed here, the consensus is a restaurant might be best.
We're flexible and certainly do not want to take on something more involved and complex than necessary.

Stay tuned.
Thanks to all that have expressed their thoughts, suggestions and ideas.
It's appreciated.
