Carolina CS Spring Campout 23-25April 2010!
Posted March 28th, 2010 - 12:10 pm by from Charlotte, United States (Permalink)
The Charlotte CS Community has reserved a group
campsite up in the Pisgah National Forest in the Mt.
Mitchell and Black Mountain area and would like to
invite the neighboring CS community to join us! Come
join the party and hangout in the mountains! We have
two group campsites reserved right next to each other,
and we'll be hanging out Friday April 23rd until Sunday
April 25th.

There is a ball field and a volleyball net near the
campsite-- we can spend a lazy afternoon hanging out
doing that, as well as play frisbee, cook, drink, eat
too much, etc. There is also a shelter, as well are
fire rings and grills at each camp site.

There's also a lot to do in the area so if you're a
hiker, bring your hiking gear, if you're a kayaker,
bring your kayak, and if you just want to hang around
and meet all the other CS'ers in our cities, come do
that! There's room for 100 CS'ers, but we need to get
an approximate count for the campsites, so please RSVP.

See you there!

The BEST way to announce this event is to create a meeting event and send out invitations. I suggest using a CouchSearch to find CSer's within a four-hour drive to start, then target North, West, South states that are up to ten-hour drive.

I'm happy to talk you through the process.

There's probably 200-300 members total whom fit the 50s+ age mark and I'd say to expect no more than a 5% RSVP rate when giving enough time of notice + reminders.

Exposure using the meeting system is the key to getting participants.
