Bay Area Clock Change Event?

Hey everyone! I've had a prettttty stressful couple of months, and I've been itching for a little event. I was wondering if anyone had anything in the works for a Bay Area clock change event.

If not . . .
Does anyone have a good pub up their sleeve?

I almost reached out to a few of you to see if you might like to collaborate, but I thought I'd see if anyone had anything planned first. I'm still recovering from surgery and am a little afraid to take on anything by myself, but if you think you might be interested in planning a little something with me, hit me up!

I'd be happy to help carve, though too busy with other life stuff at the moment to help with actual planning.

March 10, huh? Hmmmm....Mu, i’m not a carver, just a sugar planner. And sometimes a boxer planner....maybe we can all work something out. But Nature Hikers MUST come if they are making comments...

How many would like to have an event Sunday, March 10th? Probably North or East Bayish (unless Nature Hikers want to host!)

Raise your hands!

I wish we could help with the planning/carving, but February is shaping up to be a very crazy month.

We should be free on March 10th, though. So we are definitely up for attending.

The pub I've had my eye on for a Clocks Change event is the Britannia Arms in Cupertino - maybe one of the San Jose peeps could check out if it is an appropriate set-up for our gang. The other place I have considered is the Commonwealth Pub on Telegraph near Pill Hill in Oakland. That one would be much easier for our newly minted Mrs Kudichan to check out. But it might be too small - the Kensington Circus was deemed "unfit" for that reason previously.

Grumpy Grinch posted one of the clock change events at the Britannia Arms down in Cupertino a few years ago. I thought it went very well and the place was big enough.

Looks like I had the wrong Britannia Arms. There's one in Almaden near Scrambl'z which is where GG hosted their clock change, not the one in Cupertino.

I remember that one, with the big red phone booth outside. I forgot that it was *also* called Britannia Arms.

Is it set up as an automatic response? Do we need to have a battery pack on us?

There is a box down south that uses phone and e-mail. You have to send in the correct answer to get the next clue. My phone nearly ran out of power trying to find the boxes in the series.

Event Issue/Concerns~Oh, that Darn Cat

So, I have be struggling with this year's event.

The escape room was sooooo much fun and it was a great theme. And it was a type of event that I had wanted to do for some time . . . which brings me to this year's event.

I really, really, really want to do a multi-day "camp". The problem for me and my crew is location. Location, location, location. It would be better for my crew and co conspirators to host this type of event in "our own backyard".... as in Lassen County.

Lassen County is just ripe for dozens of plants we can do for the event theme.

The problem of course for the attendees is Location, location, location. This is why we normally eye Reno for the events because it is closer and it is a big city and it has casinos and great food. But Reno will not work for all of the activities we have planned for "camp".

Now, one of the cool things about where we would like to host this "camp" is actually free to camp in and RV camp in. It's totally free. (But for RVs, there is no sewage dumping, though.) Hotel camping, though, is not free.

But if no one comes, then that would be super bad. (and a little hurtful)

So, that's the problem.

Using the theme, we have soooo many awesome ideas, like a smore's gathering, ghost stories telling, potlucks, a Beast in the Woods mystery, an escape room-that is separate from The Beast in the Woods, maybe a talent show, a really fun raffle . . .

It would be 2.5 days of camp related activities and letterboxing.

The event would start on Friday, go through Saturday and end Sunday afternoon. You don't have to do the "camp" activities, if you just want to letterbox the entire weekend. You would decide.

But I don't know what kinda of interest this would garnish. Now, I know I haven't said the actual theme, but it's a great one!

And just an FYI, I actually like the idea of the event starting off on Friday the 13th of September but we have also been eyeing the last weekend too.

So.... feedback, please! The more the merrier. Anyone who has ever attendant a Cat and Bird Production KNOWS my events have a cast and crew that are driven to having an AWESOME event.

LA is huge....where exactly are you staying/working. That can help us narrow down where you will be and we can better recommend boxes to find etc.
