|August Singles Campout in Ft MacleodPage 1 of 1 |
|This is more of a rant than a general interest post, but I feel the need :)|
I recently hosted a singles campout in Ft Macleod and 70+ people signed up to attend (note: less than 25% from Lethbridge). There was even the usual "not coming because it will be a sausage fest" male post on the event thread. The weather was not ideal, but there I was setting up my TENT Friday afternoon ready for the fun weekend ahead. Two other people arrived on Friday - 1 man, 1 woman. On Saturday, we had 3 more women arrive, and another gentlemen stopped in to say "hi" on his way through. Of the 15 women that signed up, 5 attended. Of the 60 men that signed up, only 1 attended and he was the drop in. The other gentleman already had plans for the weekend and didn't sign up... plans changed and last minute he decided to come to the campout... kudos to him!
I have to admit, I have a feeling of disappointment relating to the general population on this website. I just shake my head.
On a positive note, I do want to thank those that did attend... we had a lot of laughs and good food. Sitting around the camp fire and later in the cozy warm camp kitchen getting to know one another was exactly what the doctor ordered... a GREAT weekend... thanks again.
