    Just a HOPEFUL reminder!icon_cool.gif
    Saturday, April 19, 1 pm, at the Columbus Zoo!icon_exclaim.gif
    Meet at the front gate, entrance into the park. I will be holding a sign with the 'RJ logo' (the running active guy) to signify our spot. I will be there from 1230 to 1pm with my sign....Before I go into the park.

    It is $5 to park and $10 admission.
    If you bring a cellphone or a couple of the plastic 6 pack rings for recycling, you can get $3 off addmission.
    Hope to see you all there!
    Hoping to do dinner together....maybe at the Union and maybe go out that night to a fun bar, as a group! open for suggestions....Weather should be warm enough and rain is only a 50-50 shot....COME ON OUT TO THE COLUMBUS ZOO! and meet your fellow Real Jocks of Columbus!icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif

    Well....I don't know what happened.
    I got to the Zoo at 1245, sat at the front gate with a sign.....drew lots of curious stares and NOT A SINGLE person showed. I sat until 115, with the sign. I went into the zoo and wandered around....I love the Zoo and could spend alot of time there! I was there until the park closed at 5pm. I saw a few groups of guys that could have, maybe been RJ's, but no connection was made. I am disappointed....That is the report...I know Columbus doesn't have a "lame group", so I'll just say the weather and other personal happenings conspired against this event.

    Interestingly, as I walked around the zoo, thinking about what went wrong, I had a few fleeting thoughts about approaching RJ member get togethers as a "hunter" or an "animal curator"....do we need to always and only consider the "native home range" of the " gay species"....the gay bars, the gym, all of the place stereotypical of gays and at particular evening hours, sort of like "the mating season"icon_lol.gif..... to connect or gather? OK, this was a stange train of thought. Yeah I know the weather was "marginal", it did rain a little off and on, but still it was OK.

    I want to try another get together...maybe sticking to a "bar or restaurant/tavern" get together? I had hopes for more than a "drunken get together", but, I look forward to it all the same! Anyone have any Ideas or dates?
