Thank you and all of the Tewksbury Library staff for allowing us to play inside on a chilly day.
I wondered what the regular library patrons thought of our curious activity.

To the new boxers, Welcome.
This is just the beginning of the fun you have to look forward to as you play the game.

Hello All!
I will be doing some training in Westford, MA from Feb 4th-8th (with a possible hanging-around-for-letterboxing on Sat Feb 9th, if there is some interest).

I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet up with some of my Northeastern Friends, if anyone wants to do a Meet-n-Greet...

Do you know roughly what time your training ends, Wassa? I work pretty close to Westford and could meet you for dinner, depending on which evenings you'd be available.

This JUST came up today, and really all I know is "4th - 8th, Westford MA". But I suspect there will be a "group dinner" probably Monday night, and probably Thursday night. So Tues or Wed is more LIKELY to be best. I can guarantee Friday is good though! And, I think I'm booking my flight back on Sunday, so I'll likely have Saturday free as well.

But... I hope to have more firm answers in the next couple of days... sorry for the unintentional current vagueness!

No worries! Please keep us posted.

Looking at my schedule, given that Monday and Thursday are out for you, Wednesday night would be best for me at this point. Getting together on Saturday would probably work for me, too.

I'm interested in meeting you!

If you list something, there is a 90% chance I will come - especially if its the weekend and no 495 rush hour traffic to deal with! It's a bit over an hour drive up there, or 4+ hours with traffic...

Either day works for me too. Saturdays are usually more laid back, but I can do either day.

I can sense a "mini-midi-major-munchie-meet n greet" sorta thing brewing here! Any thoughts on where we can gather a gaggle of moose-friendly letterboxers in the Westford area? First place that comes to my mind is Chili's in Lowell. Please chime in with other ideas! Saturday is preferential but Wassa will confirm the best date tomorrow and then we can make more definitive plan.

There is a wildlife sanctuary in Westford that I'm pretty sure is moose-friendly.

There's also a Chili's right in Westford. There's always been empty tables the few times I've been there.
British Beer Company in Westford is one of my favorite haunts, but they can get full, especially on weekends.

Wassa in Westford

Thanks for the warning!

But I suppose if you can come from CA, I can drag my a$$ over from the next town.

In addition to the other good meeting suggestions already mentioned, here are a few other options:

There is a lunch buffet (11:30-2:30) on Saturdays at Bamboo Asian cuisine in Westford that includes dim sum, sushi & dessert I believe.

Panera Bread - Westford

Evviva Tratttoria - Pizza and up

Wassa couldn't get the Saturday extension so the meet-a-moose catastrophe will need to be on Friday evening for those up for punishment! Where we can all fit is the final question. Looks like somewhere between 2 and 99 potential party poopers. That helps narrows down the options.

Hmm......... I've often been told that Moose are the MOST intelligent of all species, but perhaps a little reminder is due in this situation:
1)We currently hold the keys to the carvers.
2)Your trail name includes such items as a$$, $mut and Twa_!!!

Although we're technically in charge, we have no really Eevil intentions and we'll leave your fate in the hands of the other administrators. Good luck with that!!!!!!!!

See you soon - for betterer or worserer!

Better hurry and sign up! We are fast approaching the limit!
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?eventId=4136

Note: The limit is "infinity". So, mathematically speaking, we are EVERY BIT AS CLOSE to the limit as, say, "Live and Breathe" or "Final Flight" were. THAT'S how popular I am!!!!

Thanks to our SubGenius admini-pant, we have reserved moose-friendly space for our party of 20+/- at "Great Road Kitchen" in Littleton. Please try to meet there as close to 6 as you can so we can be sure to secure the needed space before the Friday evening rush! Wassa was kind enough to set up an open bar during closed hours, so feel free to help yourself for no charge at home before or after! Otherwise, we'll be purchasing cocktails, appetizers and other yummy creation at our own expense. Bring your stamps, log books and other letterboxing related creations. This is a Table-box Friendly event. Trade LTCs, exchange travelers, Antler Dance on the tables....... let's make it a Most-Memorable-Mini-Moose-Meet!!! ;o)
