I think the 8th should work for me. I don't know of any conflicts right now at least.

I'm reading about all the times and dates but I will have no idea if I will be able to make it. My grandsons mom is coming in Aug. to pick him up but she hasn't given an exact date. I am new anyway so please make it to fit everyone elses schedule. I just look forward to getting to know everyone talking on here. Just wanted you to know I was still around. Have a great day.

Did we ever meet up last summer? I know it was talked about, I wanted to go, but that was around the time frame I lost track of signing onto spark.

If we had one last summer, how did it go?

I am actually going to Francis Slocum State Park this weekend to do some camping/hiking/kayaking and such. I am not available July 30-August 2, my daughter is in a soccer tournament in Canada that weekend. But any other time sounds good for me I would just need to know at least two weeks in advance so I can request off from work just in case they feel like scheduling me that day.

I'm open, and Saturday's work for me.

It's a little over an hour for me, my only concern if we meet to late, I wouldn't be able to stay too long. I have trouble driving when it gets dark.

I'm glad you actually brought up that date in particular. I forgot that I have to videotape my cousin's fiancee's bridal shower that day.

Still, if the 25th works for everyone else, don't not have it on my account. I can always catch you all next time!

How about we have it on a Saturday, in case for those who go to Church on Sundays.

We could have it July 25? Before it gets too hot. Now about the actual time to meet. If we have it in the morning, it won't give us enough time to get ready and drive to the park. It'll be like we all are rushing. Plus we'll be sitting in the hot sun through noon when the sun is at it's highest.

We could have it mid afternoon, like 3pm? The park closes at dusk. There are pavilions, but you have to pay to use. However, you can still use the pavilion (free), if you're in luck that noone reserved it for that day. There are plenty, lots of picnic tables around the whole park. There are also flushable clean bathrooms.

Looking through this thread I am not seeing any problems after July 19. Does anyone have a scheduling problem after that date?

Also is there a preference between Saturday or Sunday. Please chime in :)

Well I personally don't want to join a "sparkrally", mainly because I don't want to buy/wear spark gear. :-)

But I am all up for meeting those who I've been talking with.

4yrs ago, I was emailing with 3 other ladies who were on a diet. I ended up meeting 2 of them. One lived in VA and the other in CA. I stayed friends with the lady from Virgina. Matter of fact, July 4th weekend, hubby and I renting a cabin with her at the Smokey Mtns.

So July 3rd-6th I'm not available. All other dates I am.

I am sorry that was my fault the sparkspeople want their teams to get together on June 26, - 28th for sparksrallies. I just figured we could call our get together a small rally and be eligible for the sparkprizes. All you would need to do is take your picture in sparks gear but I think it says you can do that even if you can't go to a rally. So don't worry about those dates.

Did I miss this in the thread? I'm sorry, I'm not sure.

Is it correct that we're looking at Friday June 26? Did anyone choose a time?

Just wondering, as I won't be able to get there till after work. Thanks.

No I don't think so either. I always wish I did. I'm 5'3. I got my mom's height. Well she is 4'9, but my dad is 6'3. I always wish I could add a couple more inches.

God knows, my boobs are growing. lol

But I am glad to know I didn't do anything serious to my shin. My husband had actually put me on house arrest for me to get better. No cutting grass, vacuming, dishes, laundry etc..

Show Your Spark This Summer and Win Prizes!
Have Fun and Get Fit Across America
Our Spread the Spark Summer Challenge will kick off with the official "Show Your Spark" Weekend, Friday, June 26, 2009 to Sunday, June 28, 2009. During this weekend, SparkPeople members across the globe will wear their SparkPeople Gear and/or gather at SparkRallies. (Visit your local SparkTeam page to help plan or RSVP to attend a local SparkRally in your area!) Even if you don't attend a Rally, you can still wear your gear wherever you go--and be on the lookout for other SparkPeople members doing the same!



www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

n_articles.asp?id=542

This is 1 of the articles I read about sparkrallies. Here is a clip of it.
SparkPeople recently launched City Teams, which allow you to connect with members who live in your area. One of the greatest features on City Teams is SparkRallies. Local Team members (and leaders) can plan Rallies so that members who live near one another can meet up in person. So far, SparkRallies have been a hit from California to Florida! We believe there are endless benefits from getting involved with your City Team and its SparkRallies.

Hi Denise! We put a memo on everyone's sparkpage , as well as, a team mailing. I think other than one other gal, we are the only ones from this neck of the woods. I don't know if our numbers will constitute a rally, but it will a great opportunity for us to get together and get better acquainted with the folks we've been chatting with :)

Hey I think getting together sounds cool and I found this site while looking for anyone doing a sparksrally on June 26th could we maybe make this get together part of the sparksrally somehow? I don't know how the rallies work it says to check with team leaders and city sites in your area. Oh I'm from Bradford County, Alba to be spacific, there CANNOTFATHOM's who said we should send out emails is also Bradford County, Athens I would like to come but it will depend on where it ends up and how far away.

I would like to join this group get together if I am available. I live in Freeland, which is close to Route 80/81 interchange. I am not available from June 28th to July 5th, then July 12th to July 19th. Other the these days my weekends are free. I know that summer time is hard to get people together. So it is okay if you can not include me.

Yes it's easy to get too.

I'll just throw out the simple directions. Taking 81 North or the turnpike north.

81 North get off exit 170B, onto 115 which quickly turns into 309/CrossValley. Follow 309 all the way until you hit your first light. Turn right onto Carventon Rd (when you reach this point, you'll see a sign for Francis Slocum park). Follow Carventon Rd all the way out (towards the end, along the road you'll drive past francis slocum lake). Drive past the lake, continue on Carventon until a stop sign. (you can not go straight) Turn left onto 8th St. Follow 8th St. You'll pass a small car lot on the left, Mt Zion on the right. Continue to follow 8th st. Then turn left on Mt Olivet Rd. Follow that road until you see Francis Slocum state park entrance on the left.

If coming from the Turnpike, take it North to exit 105 Bear Creak exit. Turn left onto 115 and follow the above directions. (115 turns into 309/Crossvalley)

Ok I hope you ladies don't mind me adding my 2 cents about all this location and such.

I'm a little good in geography, but that's only because my husband and I travel to go hiking/camping and I think I got my dad's sense of direction (all thanks to him being a truck driver).

Anyways, I got everyone's location who wrote in this thread. From what I can see, the wilkes-barre area is the central location. It's about an hour for those living in the Stoudsburg, Saylorsburg and Bowmantown. It's also an hour drive from Hughesville.

I didn't see anyone else who lived further away. If so, let me know I'll put that in and find a new location.

Here was a new thought about this whole meeting thing. If we choice the wilkes-barre area and decide for the walk. How about we do something like meeting a state park. Francis Slocum state park is in the wilkes-barre area. We could all bring some kind of food. hotdogs, watermelon etc.. you know picnic kind of food, but not pig out kind of food since we all are trying to watch what we eat. We can enjoy the day outside and if we want we can take a walk.

I know Francis Slocum very well. There are nice easy walks to take or med or to harder walks. There is also a playground if want to bring kids along. They also have a inground pool for swimming, volleyball net and a lake.

It's just an idea. We all can sit on it and think about it.

If the picnic idea is out of the question we can still do a restuarant. There are plenty of those to choose from.

I would like to join in on the meet up.

I read the thread and I think the wilkes-barre area might be the middle of where every is from.

I was thinking, not only could we meet at a restuarant, but why not make a walk out of it or like a hike or something. I mean after all we are on a dieting website right?

BTW, I am from Harding.
My weekends are free.
Hopfully by the time we figure out a date to meet, my body will be better. I have a stress fracture on my shin and I've been sick, so because of coughing my side hurts.

My summer will be extremely hectic. I will be orienting to a new job (I will be laid off effective the end of June, but thankfully was able to find a new job already!), and I have a vacation scheduled, plus I am a camp nurse for a few weeks. So, please don't plan the location depending on me, since I may not be able to make it. If the gathering falls on a day that I'm available, I'll drive wherever I need to! (My Garmin is my best friend!!)

This sounds like a great idea, I am always up to meet new people. I have been looking at a map and the furthest southerner we have so far is Momthom and the furthest northerner we have so far is Cannotfathom. I think somewhere around either the Tunkhannock or Dallas area would be a middle spot for these two. I am from Hughesville, which is near Williamsport, but I enjoy traveling so it doesn't matter to me where we meet.

I think that's a good idea, Penny. I was just trying to guesstimate from the people who had chimed in what might be a central spot.

If you're keeping a list, I'm interested! (and in Scranton)

I may not be the only one who will have to travel. I just want to make the suggestion that once we have an idea who wants to attend....then we can logistically figure out a central point or a convenient selection.

I will have to drive regardless. I am further away than the Williamsport, Pittston, Canton, etc members, because I'm more north.

I think if it is a team get together we need to send out a sparkmailing, that way we know the whole team is aware...they may have not seen this thread.

Hi Penny, I believe this is a team get together. 2 hours is a long drive for you, Where are you closest too?

If I can add my 2 cents :) Mt. Pocono is a lovely area but not centrally located for everyone. For instance...I am over 2 hours from there. Has everyone who'd like to go to a get together chimed in? It might be easier to pick a central location once that happens. Maybe Doris or I can sparkmail the team and get a list of who like to attend.

If this is just a mini get together and not a total team function...then just ignore me :)

OK, so I'm not good at geography either, but here is the first suggestion for a meeting place. It's a little farther for me in Scranton and from Forty Fort, but I thought we might be able to find a restaurant there...and I thought if we meet again we could maybe choose a point farther north next time.


What about meeting in Mount Pocono or somewhere thereabouts?

The next couple of weekends are no good for me, but restaurant is a good idea.

Weekends are best for me. A restaurant would be nice. Who would know the areas well enough to determine a central location?

Maybe everyone should check their calendars and then decide on a central location?

I suggest that we all try to figure out if we can meet up this summer....

Anyone else up for it?
