Events Currently on the Books for SFKossacks

The SFKossacks have a reputation for Rolling Out the Red Carpet for out-of-town visitors. You just have to Kosmail me and we'll set something up for you if you ever visit us.

I have three events I'm currently organizing.

This diary is a heads up for anyone who wants to attend.

Definitely on the Calendar:

Sunday, August 5th: (hosts: citisven and kimoconnor)
San Francisco Sunday Streets sets pre-determined Sundays throughout the year when major streets are closed to car traffic. Pedestrians and cyclists, plus vendors take over. The local businesses flourish with increased foot traffic.
11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Valencia Street from 14th to 24th and 24th Street from Valencia to Hampshire
Transportation and Parking Directions

citisven and kimoconnor recommend you arrive after 11 a.m. to walk around and visit all the booths and stores. People watching is the main feature of the day.

Then, we'll all convene at a watering hole, its location as yet to be determined. I'll announce the address in this daily diary as soon as citisven and kimoconnor select it.

Then! Then! After 4 p.m. we'll all invade kimoconnor's lovely city garden for a backyard bbq. It will be potluck so keep that in mind. Food items can be dropped off in advance at Kim's place between 10:30 a.m. and noon before you walk around the Mission.  

Here is my last diary about this terrific event:

Bonus! This just in as of 6:30 a.m. Red Carpet Rollout for angelajean! She's visiting relatives in the Bay Area and will join us at this event.

angelajean is a military wife who writes extensively at Daily Kos about that experience.

Sunday, August 19th Meet: Tim Delaney!
Tim is transcoasting to visit his sisters smiley creek (+Paradise50) and mimi2three in NorCal. After his visit there he's going to spend a few days in the Bay Area. The NorCal contingent will roll down with him.

Save the afternoon and early evening for a Red Carpet Rollout for Tim.

I'm trying to decide on the venue. We can do a restaurant in the city or, OR... I'm thinking we can do our Hog Island Oysters afternoon bbq in Point Reyes. I'm really leaning towards that. Any objections?


Time and Location: TBD

But, soon we'll decide. It will be announced in this daily series.

Figbash has said she might fly out from Chicago to join us, hope so!

Stay tuned!

Tentively on the Calendar:
Steveningen works at the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo. He and I have been trying to set up an event there. He would like his facility to cater the event and he wants to arrange a tour of one the huge ships docked there.

We are currently looking at the following dates:

7/21 or 7/22

7/28 or 7/29

Stay tuned!

I'll report here in this daily series with updates for each event.

This diary is an example of what we do year-round to build our community. Personal bonds are strengthened and more SFKossacks are feeling comfortable creating events on their own, which I gladly support.

I've been organizing events for SFKossacks since 2005.



100+PICS: SFKossacks Make side pocket's Fantasy Come True
(side pocket is my First Lieutenant at SFKossacks. He provides a lot of support to make ALL of our events successful. This diary is evidence of his finest work. Markos and several Front Pagers attended.)

Public Service Announcement!

Let's build communities!

Every region needs a meat-space community like SFKossacks.

We take care of each other, for reals.

I urge YOU to take the lead and organize one in your region.

Please tell us about it if you do and I'm here for advice.

Okay. Floor's open.

Talk amongst yourselves.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
