Title: London Chapter
Post by: Greenguy on November 25, 2013, 02:27:04 PM
Post anything related to meetings, special events, etc... involving London and surrounding area.
It will make it easier to see what's going on locally.

GG,

Good idea. Keep those in the area focused to one location for updates and local activities.

Best success,

MM.

Hey Green Guy
Sorry to have missed the meeting, Saw the bike but nothing else.  We should meet up some time when possible just so we know where each of us are in the prepping field. Right now I'm in the middle of fixing the house to sell and taking care of the wife. Working nights don't help either. So if/when we can, I would like to meet you, again?.

Hi Ranger,
I'm sorry we didn't meet up last weekend.  I think once we advance the use of our sign posts (et al...) this kind of thing won't happen anymore.  People will know where to go even if the group has moved off somewhere more private.
We'll have more meetings this year.  If we have another one at Gibbons Park I think we'll be more specific about where in the park we're meeting, or have a fallback spot, or signposts.  That park is huge, with multiple access points.
There has been some discussion about going to the range next weekend.   I have to report that the range is now controlled entry.   That means we'd have to have a meeting point off-range, consolidate into one or two vehicles and then proceed.
Not impossible, but if anyone misses the consolidation then they'd be SOL for getting in.

I am from Woodstock and my twin brother is in Thorndale. We are both peppers and have a different skill set, which makes us a good team.  We would love to become more active in a London chapter. Please keep us informed on anything in the area.

Greetings and Salutations to All
I have been away from active Prepper groupings for a while, due to commitments. In the middle of trying to fix up my place to sell, so time has been tight.
I will try to make it to the next gathering, and God willing I will find them next time.  For those who don't know I have a site on Pinterest. This is an information sharing site, that shows how to do almost every thing from art to zoology.
Good luck to all, and I hope to meet you all in the future.

Welcome to the forum GnosticKnowmad! Yes, there are a number of us in London.  We had been meeting up quite regularly for a while, but lately not as much.  Tried to get a meeting going a couple of weeks ago, but no response.  Will try again soon :-)  We are a small, but good bunch of people.

Post by: GnosticKnowmad on June 28, 2015, 04:06:02 AM
well , I'm just an office monkey . I been prepping here and there over the last couple of years . Unfortunately my skill base for SHTF situation is quite limited which is one of the key reasons why I want to form alliances .  I fallow closely what is going geopolitically and socially , and I have to say it creeps me out sometimes .   Needless to say I have some disposable income to invest further into prepping .

Alright, folks.  It's high time we had a meeting because it's been far too long, and last time I checked, the world wasn't getting any better.  So, I propose a meetup on the weekend of July 25.  We can have it in the afternoon or evening on either Saturday, Jul 25 or Sunday, July 26.  I can attend any of those times.  I am leaving some wiggle room for those who might have more trouble with their schedules.  I am thinking we can do the Gibbons Park thing like we did last summer, but set an alternate location in case of bad weather. So, if you want to come and can make it, please chime in and say when is best for you.  I will finalize the date and time once I've heard back  :D   Come on out and get to know some local preppers!

Awesome!  Want to say 2:00 pm on Saturday the 25th?  Location open for discussion.  I'm fine anywhere.
Title: Re: London Chapter
Post by: Greenguy on July 13, 2015, 07:01:16 PM
Sure!  I am good with Gibbons Park, somewhere near where we met last time but we have to find a way to identify that location to those coming that don't know.  Gibbons is a massive park..

Next meeting Sunday 25 October 2015 @ 1pm Arby's on Wellington Just South of the 401 everyone welcome.

This gives everyone a couple weeks notice, for those that don't check in often and 1pm should avoid the lunch rush.

Chime in if you are interested and if you will be attending.
