I am a little more in Northern NY than Central, but I would be glad to travel to the Syracuse area for a mini- meet. I am about 40 minutes north of Utica, 90 minutes from Syracuse.

Was that you that I met one time years ago when you were down in the city clearing out an apartment? That was soooooo long ago!

Or was it not you? lol

I might drive up. Long drive. Not sure. :)

It was not me, but we've definitely met! Probably a DSS several years (a decade?) ago, or Susquehanna Sojourn?

Nice to see you back up and running, so to speak :)

We're always interested in events - seems it's been ages since I was down your way (Susquehanna in '17 and Cortland in '18, I think). And even longer since we last met up with you :)

Cheers, Jiggs

A bunch of us did a mini meet a few years ago at Sammy Malones in Baldwinsville where Boingo Chick works and it was a lot of fun meeting local boxers. We would be up to go so let us know or if you need any help!

Thank you for the offer! Does Sammy Malone's have a space that could informally host a bunch of us? Maybe in the afternoon?

I'd love to meet- have several of your boxes!

I've packed up a bag full of event boxes to bring and share with us, 15 total event boxes. Two of which are the Year in Review Time Capsules (2017 & 2018) each with over 40 stamps. I've added them to the event. Plus, we'll be retiring some of our PT's soon. Hopefully folks will come out to get them!

It looks like if we want to get together before the weather turns nasty, October 19th might be our last bet. If the weather is nice, we'd love to meet outdoors and have the chance to plant some boxes around for the day. If not, we're still investigating indoor spaces. For those who've expressed interest, does this date absolutely rule you out? I'll post the event soon!

I *might* have to take my daughter to a hockey tournament in VT that weekend. My husband might also do it since that’s his bag, but in VT they’d stay with my kin so it makes more sense for me to go. I won’t know for a while who is going so just plan the event accordingly and I’ll come if I can! If I can’t come I’ll be thinking of you!

Question about visit next week
Board: State: New York

So hunting season has begun here in Maine, so it made me wonder about hunting in NY. I plan to box within a 30 mile radius of Albany. Is hunting allowed on the public lands, town parks and trails, etc? I'm bringing my orange vest to be on the safe side.

Thanks for any info, and I hope more come to meet up with us next Tuesday!

Bow hunting starts on Tuesday, the 1st. I'm not sure about where it's allowed- no hunters in my circle. But the orange vest is a good idea.

Some yes, some no. Some of the larger tracts of forest parks do allow hunting, but some don't
