emoticon AERIN316! You're right about this team not being very active with postings and such. I always think we can rev things up; but, it's still a little quiet. Even though the team might not be the most active, we have quite a few SP members here in town...just more active in other teams it seems.

We are working on a local meet & greet on the Flying Pig weekend here. So far, we have about 45 SP members signed up for the race -- some are local folks but we also have members traveling here to participate. If you are going to do the Pig and want to join us, just let me know and I'll get you to the Team and/or Facebook group if you want.

What part of town are you in?

Hey Kim! Welcome to SP. Hope you like it here. It seems like the Cincy group isn't all that active, but perhaps we can change that. :)

Sorry that the summer has completely gotten away from folks - between the STNA class, starting college and now starting a new job on Tuesday (and the attending money troubles, it's only part time and will pay FAR less than what I was making before, but it's in the field I want to be in so I'm excited), I really haven't had a whole lot of "mental bandwidth" to think about Sparkpeople beyond my own tracking.

Seriously, if anyone else wants to step up and try to organize something, I say go for it! I'll attend whenever I'm able. But for now, I can't really focus on organizing anything outside my own personal sphere. Sorry.

I can do June! Weekends are great for me, how about the weekend of the 16th or the 30th? It doesn't have to be a big crazy EVENT, we can work up to that. I think we should just pick a park or healthy restaurant or something, get together, and meet people.

Thoughts?

Also, YAY!

Hi - I was following this thread; but looks like I forgot to actually post. :-)
I always think the rallies sound like a great idea; but then something has always come up that keeps me from attending. Hoping to have better luck with it this year.


Sparkname - SheenaDee

Neighborhood/part of town - northern Colerain Twp (almost at Butler County border)

Best weekend day (Saturday or Sunday) - either

Best time of day on a weekend (morning, afternoon, evening) - mid-morning to late afternoon

Best week-day for a lunch-time meet up - can't do Tues.

Are you willing to help organize rallies on your side of town? help, yes

Comments/Questions/Concerns/Suggestions: I really like the idea of meeting at parks or trails during the nice weather.

Just as an FYI, I left my job at the end of March, and while I THOUGHT I was going to have all kinds of time to do stuff, I've been ridiculously busy ever since. I'm currently utterly buried in a 2 week STNA course that has eaten my brain for the time being.

That said, I DO still want to try and do this, so I'm thinking of trying to put something together in June. Definitely chime in with availability (since we're heading into vacation season, I know not everybody will be able to make it, but I still want to try and make it convenient for as many people as possible) and I'll go through the thread to see what looks best from what you've all already posted.

YAY for having so much interest!

Hello,
I was a member over 4 yrs ago & loved the site. I had alot of changes in my life n the last 5 yrs & of course regained the weight I had lost. I started exercising and watching my diet as a new years resolution & am back to where I was, The first time I was up to 193 lbs and got down to 168. Back up to 193 and am currently 169 (this morning) :). I do not vigorously watch what I eat but I do try to make better choices. I do Zumba at home on my Wii, Which I love. I did go to several classes, but the Wii makes it so much more convenient. I also bought a treadmill & work out on it as well. I do 2 miles on the tread mill when I use it & 45 mins. of Zumba. I would love to try to come meet you all when you have a get together. I live in Loveland, work in Oakley.
Saturday afternoons or pretty much anytime Sundays are good for me. I am pretty flexible for lunch thru the week or evenings thru the week except for Tuesdays. It would be great to have organized times to walk. Loveland has great trails, but I personally dont know them. I look forward to meeting others.

Best weekend day (Saturday or Sunday) - Saturday

Best time of day on a weekend (morning, afternoon, evening) - Afternoon

Best week-day for a lunch-time meet up - Thursday, or Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday if later afternoon (~1:30pm+)

I'm SO EXCITED by everybody's interest!! YAY!

Just an FYI, we're leaving for Atlanta early tomorrow morning and won't be back until Sunday, and though Sparking WILL happen while we're gone (we're staying with a friend who is a total geek, I will totally have internetz), I don't expect to have a lot of time, SO I'll start putting on my thinking cap and contacting folks about organizing things when I get back next week.

Looking forward to meeting those of you I haven't met yet! (Hey Melissa, we're practically neighbors, I'm in Price Hill!)

Comments/Questions/Concerns/Suggestions:
I know other towns have used parks as meeting places. Cincinnati has so many with such great scenery available, waht about using those as rally points. very neutral also.

I travel a lot on weekends so I tend to plan a month or more in advance



Strive to be the best you. Remember those who are in your life for a minute, an hour or forever all need your attention and smile.

I'd be happy to join if available! Fridays around lunch probably work best, and Oakley is definitely convenient! :)

So it's been a while since we tried to meet up. With only a few folks participating it became hard for me to continue trying to organize things. HOWEVER, after the discussion with some of the Cincinnati Sparkers who did the AHA Heartwalk with us this weekend, I'm finding that there is an interest in starting regular rallies up again.

SO, who's interested?
emoticon

Last year we tried to alternate areas, between the east side of town, west side, northern suburbs and Northern KY. I was *thinking* about having our first meet up at the Oakley Library, since it's so close to the Sparkpeople Corporate Office (I'm HOPING I can recruit some Spark Staff to join in the fun).

So if you're interested, please reply on this thread and take the following survey!
