|Somebody was asking about my horses yesterday and was also telling them about the horse board, Equichat, where I came from.
On Equichat, we had get togethers. This came about, when one of our members had a jumping accident, and was now in a wheel chair, very similar to Christopher Reeve. We decided to put on a benefit for her.
Most of us did not know each other, only just from the horse board, and alot of us were good friends, and you posted by whatever name you picked. It was so so cool to meet these people in person.
Granted, most are from the New England area, but some were from other states too.
We always arrainged to meet too, at the Equine Fair which is held in
MA every year, I never went, I always had a show on that date, but alot of them did.
So talking about my horses, and my great friends on there, I remembered the reunions and get togethers. It was just so cool to meet these people in person, people that you were good friends with on the board, and got to meet in person.
I thought that would be a cool idea, if we could do the same thing on here.
The first time, somebody volunteered their house and we had a cook out, and they were in MA. Had been to shows many times in MA, so it was not a big deal for me to drive there. Over time, we had trail rides, cookouts, etc.
I know we are from all over on here, but we can organize some kind of get together for people in the general area. Kinda like a reunion. Doesn;t have to be a ton of people, even if its just a handful of us.
So, what do you kitties think? What ideas do you have?
I am in the Syracuse NY area, would be glad to organize a reunion in the general area, or I can even drive to other states, just like going to a cat show, mol.
So NY, PA, NJ, CT people, what ideas do you have.
