April 2005 Schedule

Well, this is the official OMP blog, so it should be the be-all, end-all resource for OMP stuff. In that spirit, I am posting the contents of Joseph's last email about April event times, just in case any of you tend to lose track of important emails the same way that I often do. Hope to see you at these events! They are sure to be fabulous, phenomenal, and even (dare I say it?) queer as a three dollar bill wearing lipstick and a harness.

Please also note Joseph's original April schedule post below, which provides some more details about event planning of late.

Later, all you young, queer, and potentially male-identifying individuals between the ages of 18 and 29. Life is short. Do fun things.

Thursday, April 7

  • 7pm-9pm(ish): Movie/discussion night at Off the Chain that is being put on by Nick, a guy in the core group. Off the Chain is a coffee house located downtown, on the same block as Hannah's and Chopsticks.

Thursday, April 14

  • 6pm-8pm: Core group meeting. We have core group meetings every 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 6-8 at UCAN.

Thursday, April 21

  • 6pm - 8pm: Core group meeting. We have core group meetings every 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 6-8 at UCAN.
  • 7pm - 9pm: Another movie night at Off the Chain.

Tuesday, April 18

  • 7pm - 9pm: OMP! session from at UCAN. An OMP! session is an informal meeting of young gay, bi and queer guys discussing sex, love and relationships. This meeting is real important for all you guys who haven't been to one already. We provide food and lots of titillating conversation. So if you can come, we would love to see you. Did I mention we also have goodie bags for everyone who attends.

Sunday, April 10

  • 12pm - 3pm(ish): Cody, another great guy in the core group is leading a Nature Stroll. We will meet at UCAN at Noon and then carpool together to McClain Park. We will be packing a picnic for that event.

Sunday, April 30

  • The last thing we have planned for the month is a zoo trip. We will meet at UCAN at 12 and then carpool together to the Point Defiance zoo in Tacoma where they have monkeys and bears and goats, oh my.

Hey, this is an update from the core group meeting we had last night. One of the things we accomlished last night was filling out the calendar for April. We are continuing to have core group meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 6-8pm at UCAN. This will be on April 14th and April 28th. We moved the Nature hike we had planned for the April 7th to Sunday, April 10th. We will meet at UCAN at 12:00 and then carpool together to McClane Creek on Delphi Road. On Thursday, April 21st we are having a movie night upstairs at Off the Chain starting at 7:00 and on Sunday, April 30th we will meet at UCAN an travel together to Point Defiance Zoo. The cost will be about $8.75 a person. Future events we don't have dates for yet include an OMP! session (sex and relationship discussion for gay/bi/queer guys), another queer skating night, a car wash, and lube wrestling. Other things we discussed last night included ways to better advertise our project.
