Captain @GremlinGolfer and myself have been in negotiations for a possible spring 2023 cross roost field trip to the NorCal area, wanted to create this thread for ideas, thoughts, and gauge general interest. I believe we are natural allies in the national roost landscape with shared values of being the ‘laid-back fun’ clubs, a meetup only makes perfect sense. Here are some thoughts I’ve been workshopping:
weekend visit, either Thursday-Sunday or Friday-Sunday
8-12 spots per roost (can easily open up to other roosts as well if we gain enough traction)
aiming for sometime in the spring, the early season is rough on us Colorado folk
joint charity efforts FTW
field trip merch? obviously
creative format that allows roosters to make new friends from different areas (this is our main ‘why’)
Lastly, the Rohlers at large have forgiven @leric90 for his past transgressions against the great state of Colorado and his (regrettable) takes, he is more than welcome to attend, given the California Gaming Commission hasn’t taken him into custody by then.
Spring 2023 is likely when we’re doing Chunks at the Chuck. Or close enough. Do we want to reserve X amount of spots for these miscreants, and perhaps have some type of game interwoven through that event OR do something different but close timing wise?
If it’s local, I’m almost assuredly in. If it’s travel from the Bay Area, it might cause my wife to Google “brutal divorce lawyers” as I would be sandwiching that between a Feb Bandon trip and a three week August Ireland trip.
