I guess i'm glad I won't be going to this event. You probably wouldn't be able to "relate" to me because I'm the same age as you, even though I also look a lot younger, and I'd hate to waste your time.

Actually, like a lot of other things in our lives, this has slipped our minds and we completely forgot about it. No idea yet on a day or time.

Default Age...

Age is a state of mind. I have met more mature 20 year olds than some of the 40+ year olds I know.

Specially when it comes to emotional maturity.

Something strikes me as a bit head-in-the-sand about people I've known who are on wife or husband number 3, and continue to say things like "I just know this person is my one true love!" <drooling ensues>.

This is obviously only one group specific example, but you get the picture.

We've attended both munches & very informal get togethers.

Generally if they are held in a public place like park or restaurant the newbies will feel less threatened because they are familiar with what they are seeing.

The one restaurant our Brunches used to be held in had a back room where we could all go, talk up a storm, meet new people & not worry about the general public hearing things which might upset them or things which the kids ought not to hear. That back room would hold 30 or so people and the wait staff were very courteous and attentive without standing at your elbow.

Another venue had a back room as well, not as big, but was quite adequate for our needs.

Both of these were family restaurants & on main line bus routes so those without reliable transportation could get there as well.

We've had them in parks and pubs (we're a double university town plus multiple colleges). For those of us who are financially challenged the park is a wonderful idea--there are many different things to do, couples/diads/etc. can go off by themselves for a few minutes, they are kid friendly if you can't find a babysitter.

Check the local poly calendar for a night when there's little to nothing happening & set the date by that (you might want to check the local BDSM calendar as well since they two lifestyles do tend to go well together), check with the venue you choose to use whether that day & time are free & book it if it is. You will also want to make sure that they know everyone gets their own bill so you, as host, don't get stuck with it.

Our local BDSM community simply bills itself as an internet group so when newbies get there they just have to ask for the internet group & they'll be directed to us.

If you choose an outdoor venue you will also want to consider the long term weather forecast, lol, and maybe have an alternate venue available just in case.

When we meet at the park it's a pot luck, kids and furbabies are welcome.

For minimal bucks you can start a group on Meetup.com and just set up meetups at various places....parks, restaurants....

Ok, we have set a date...Sept 25th.

Now we just need a place. LOL We are looking into the local parks....but we were thinking possibly at the beach or a city park. We want this to be a family friendly event, where poly's can meet and socialize with each other with the knowledge in mind that everyone there is open to the idea of poly.

Well, let us know where and the time. I hope we can make it. The kids have games on the 25th in the Cape, then we need to get to Tampa to a hotel before the Steeler/Buc game on the 26th. So, maybe we can stop by and meet everyone.

Although it's true that the swingers' clubs might make some people uncomfortable, we have an "adult" club here in Calgary that's not open every day of the week... so they've started a Poly meet and greet on the first wednesday of the month.
It's Poly people showing up for a Poly event, having Poly talk, and there's no "swing scene" going on at all.

Something to consider.. they charge a tiny admission for use of the space, but that's reasonable, and they supply snacks and non-alcoholic beverages too.

Anyhow, we've been enjoying it for sure. Food for thought for you perhaps.
