Third Annual Mid-MO Spring Gathering Announcment

After much deliberation, the date has been set for the third annual spring gathering. It will be same as last years, Saturday May 5th. The event starts promptly at 10 AM and will run until roughly 4 PM, though everyone is invited to stay longer as camping will be available, and it is doubtful that 10-4 will allow enough time to hit all the boxes. Potluck of course! The location is being kept secret.

For those of you who have not experienced a Mid-MO spring gathering, let me elaborate a bit on what to expect. This is our BIG event. Big in terms of number of boxes, elaborate clues, number of folks who attend, contests, prizes…everything. If you can only attend one Mid-MO gathering, this is the one.

To take a peek back at last years spring gathering go HERE.

Several folks have already offered to make prize bags and now I’ll take you up on the offer. If you’re willing and able to create a little something to be awarded as a prize, please let me know. I’ve received MANY comments from past gatherings that people LOVE the prizes other folks make. You a generous crew to be sure!

I’ll be sending out invitations, but only the first 15 folks who RSVP e-mail me get them. Just zip me an e-mail with you mailing address (it won’t be shared). It’s a small price.

The theme? It’s a secret too. At least until the 15 invitations go out. Don’t want to ruin that ‘Ah-Ha!’ moment!

Send in those RSVP e-mails!

I plan to camp Friday night as well, so anyone who plans to do the same, please let me know and we can meet up early for a fireside snack and some conversation.

Hmmm...I've gotta check my schedule, but I might be up for a couple of nights of camping too. I had planned on staying overnight on Saturday after the gathering, but Friday would also be fun. I've got SERIOUS spring fever and I'm itching to get outside for as long as possible as soon as the weather makes up its mind.

Ditto on the Cabin fever. I am planning on camping Saturday but am not sure about Friday. That could be a definite possibility. This is gonna be fun!!!!

This will be my first event and I plan to camp Friday and Saturday. I'm coming from the KC area.

One Lnd-Crzr reveals the location, maybe we can arrange to get a few campsites next to each other if they are reservable ahead of time. I know there will be a limit on the number of tents allowed per site.
He has also reserved a shelter house for $30 (and paid for it with his own funds) so I think we should chip in a dollar or two for the fee.
While I realize that part of the great thing about letterboxing is that it is a fairly inexpensive hobby (for most of us;) perhaps it would be worthwhile to consider having some sort of fund established to be used exclusively for future gatherings. Comments?

Great idea Fox Fyr! I have no problem chipping in so he doesn't bear the full cost. I just can't wait!
