Brian, there are two places on CM to check. One is the "Events" page, where you found this one. These are usually the larger events that will draw people from all over the country. Also, in the Forums, there is a specific forum room called "Member Met Ups". Here you will find information and discussions about events that are more regional. Keep in mind all of these events and meet ups are planned by individual CM members who are wlling to put in the time to do the planning of them, and we're always thankful when someone like Colette here steps up and puts these events together.

If you're a member of your local Y you get a $15 a night discount. I just found this out when I called this morning. :-)
If you want to go horseback riding let Juli know ASAP. The reservationist I spoke with thought they may get booked up at the stables since it will be a busy holiday weekend. I think the days Juli mentioned going were Sunday or Friday.

Yes, the Rafting trip is fabulous, Marilyn. The drive to and from the Colorado River is great, too, as you pass through the highest point that the roads make it up into the mountains. You'll see lots of nature, and learn lots about the history of the area. The deli-style shore lunch is pretty darn good, too. Check out the pictures on the link above

I see people are still checking this event out. Even though it is only a bit over two weeks away, unlike other events that require early registration, people can still decide to come to the Rocky Mts and join in the hiking and other fun. Flights into Denver that weekend are still super-cheap, and lodge rooms are still available for booking.

Juli, I looked at the current horse back riding times and trails yesterday. I am going to do it just not sure what day. A coworker of mine suggested I limit it to a 2 hour ride since I haven't been riding for 15 years. I used to ride with guides several times a year but they all went out of business in my area. I'd love to do an 3 or 4 hour ride I'm just not sure how sore I would be afterwards. I'm not rafting so any day would probably work for me.

If you are willing to share a room you can cut costs dramatically. I have 4 roommates for this event and the nightly costs will be very nominal per night for example. Shuttles to hikes and town are free so renting a car isn't necessary unless you want to see sites out of the area. The meals are reasonable and buffet style so you can stock up and skip lunch.

interesting, fun, and reasonably priced... I just checked prices for flights into Denver for those dates, from a few major cities: CHI, ATL, PHX, St Louis, Dallas... all $200 - $250! There is still time to make arrangements to attend this event, now less than 6 weeks away

53 days! there's still time to book a room and sign up for the fun activities like rafting! Check out the YMCA of the Rockies for other activities like horseback riding. Like ghosts? Take the shuttle into town to visit the historic Stanley Hotel, made famous in Stephen King's "The Shining". Or just hang with the group, and come along as we trek up and down the mountainside. Did I say it is only 53 days away?

Joe, you're not doing anything wrong. There isn't a group registration as such, people are either making room reservations in their own name, or connecting with others from the group if they are trying to find roommates. Christin, I'm sure it is ok to just come for part of the event, and then join uo with the group activities once you get there. If you plan to go rafting, you'll want to book that in advance. Not everybody plans to raft, others will be hiking that day as well. I'm also sure Colette will be checking back in very soon to provide better clarity than I can...

Taking up running to help with altitude issues. Not running any marathons but hoping at least to expand my lung capacity. I recommend others at least start training with brisk walks. You don't need to over do it but the stunning views from the higher altitudes are so worth it I would hate for anyone to miss those.

FYI to my roommates Paula, Juli, Rosanna and Cheryl I booked 1 room in the Eagles Cliff Lodge. I'll send you all an email sometime this weekend. I booked online and Eagles Cliff Lodge was the only one of the east side lodges that came up so they may be filling up.
