Jon,

Yes your summary is what I have intentions of doing. As for meeting this weekend I am game but I need a for sure in advance so I can get my stuff all charged up.
On another note I just contacted the AMA Park Flyer Program coordinator, Ben Flesher, and he will be sending out the “How to Start a Park Flying Site” turnkey package. He said it will go out on Monday and I should be recieving it late next week. Ben also said if we need anything else to let him know.

That sounds fair enough to me...

I just noted that Jon said fun is secondary....I think the fun should be had at all times but the ultimate goal is to get a few secured sites for flying (indoor and outdoor). The education will be the means by which we as a group gain the attention of the needed facility managers and school district personnel.
I guess that is kind of selfish on my/our part but if we want to use public areas such as parks and schools we will need to play politician as much as I dislike politics it is a necessary evil.

If we're not having fun than I don't want to do it.

My thought of a get together was more of an indoor sitdown introduce ourselves and come up with a unified set of goals and plan. I am not against flying in conjunction with or instead of the sitdown, and it will be a fairly good weather this weekend.

Like I said earlier, I have an indoor public space we can meet at in Sparks if that is the way we want to go. My schedule is pretty open all weekend until Sunday late afternoon.

I could meet you guys Saturday... I'm open between 9am and 4pm... Sounds like there's enough initial interest that we should sit down, chew the fat and come up with a proposal for Parks and Rec.

I plan to ski on Sunday so that's out...

I am available anytime within 9 to 4. I can offer a meeting place at 1055 Industrial Blvd., Suite 20. It's a workshop with a lounge area suitable for us to talk.

When you come tomorrow, you will see that 1055 Industrial way is a large industrial/storage building. Suite 20 is at the back. You will see "Bridgewire" painted on the door. Just knock if the door is locked.

I've edited the subject of the thread to be more accurate to the current goal. Hopefully I haven't lost anyone in the process. Maybe we'll pick up a few more
