wave Hi, Lucy. I'm organizing my second event, and made 3 meet-ups apart from the events. I enjoyed each one, and feel blessed to have met the people I have at them. Wish I could afford to go to one out of state, but my limited funds need to be dedicated elsewhere at the moment.

How about you?

I have not gone to one but would like to. There's never any event close to where I live.

Yes, about 8 or so. Horseback riding, corn maze, and zoo, once each. Arlington Race track several times. Brought my kids to all of them, except the first Arlington I attended. All were local, and most were during the summer when I was not working (except for being a mom). All the events were arranged by two CMr's, both of which aren't active members anymore (I believe).


For those looking to get out and do something, I highly recommend attending an event. thumbsup If you can travel, do so then. I've found that evenone who attends them are friendly, and if you have kids, they are very welcoming of them.

CM Phoenix in the Fall 2012, and excited to go to CM Phoenix in the Spring 2013--thanks, Lina, for such a great time!!! clap Bow

I want to go to more of them, and hope to help organize one for California in the future. It is THE BEST WAY to meet others, have Christian fellowship, and have FUN!! So many interesting and fun, diverse people to meet and begin friendships!!! Do it, do it DO IT! thumbsup

Thanks, Lina, for organizing the events you've done! I'm not an organizer of the full-scale events. I'm just not the talented! wink I've only organized one Meet-Up at my place for New Year's Eve in Dec. 2011, though I'm second in command for a couple Helen 407474 technically heads up . As for attending:

CM St. Louis - 2x

CM Ireland 2011

CM Indy events - too many too count, though I don't make them as often as I'd like

CM Chicago - 2012

several small meet-ups within a few hours drive from me

one meet-up organized by the NY/NJ peeps when another CMer and I came to town

Like you, Lina, my funds are limited, as well as timing due to teaching. I'd LOVE to travel to some of the events that have been listed over the years. I've not been to Phoenix, but I believe the OTHER Peoria is nearby... wink

And don't forget CM St. Louis! You and I got a chance to meet at the tail end of one of those, and I think that may have been your second one in St. Louis

Hi, Susan! wave I hope you get to attend one, too! Have you thought of trying to host a small meet-up for Mass, followed by a meal? Get in touch with Mary 25961. I'm not sure how far you are from the NYC area, but I know once upon a time, they had a crew that met monthly there. I think they've slacked off, but they might still get together occasionally.
