Default PolyColumbus

Hello All,

My name is Rose and I am one of the social staff members of PolyColumbus. I will be using this topic to post about our local meetings and social events associated with PolyColumbus for anyone who might be interested in attending. For those who want to be informed directly on a more regular basis, PolyColumbus has a Meetup group and a FetLife group. We also regularly post events on the secret Facebook group "Poly in the Midwest" and will soon be launching our own website with its own Google calendar. Anybody who is interested in links or being added to any of those groups can PM me for details.

Please come join us for a canoeing trip on Sunday morning, July 27th at Trapper John's Canoe Livery (7141 London Groveport Rd, Grove City, OH 43123). We will plan to meet at 10:30AM and be on the creek by 11AM. If you show up later, it is always possible to catch up to the rest of the group on the creek if you'd like to try it.

Cost for the Sampler Trip is $16 per person for a canoe or kayak and $5 per child from 6-12 years old. This will be the trip most of the group will probably take. However, the Lower Trip will also be available for those who might be interested in that, since it is just an extension of the Sampler (see website for pricing).

This event is family friendly. However, the livery does not allow children under the age of 6 to go on trips and all persons under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a release form.

Feel free to flirt, socialize, and make connections so long as you are being mindful of the signals you are receiving from others. Some people are not open to or seeking new partners.

Things to bring:
- Sunscreen
- Shoes (you MUST wear shoes, so something you don't mind getting wet and dirty and preferably something that won't easily fall off your foot like strapped sandals or water shoes)
- Water
- Bug spray
- Towel (leave in car)
- Something to protect electronic devices from water if you want to bring them on the trip for pictures or anything

Things not to bring:
- Glass bottles
- Any cooler larger than a personal size
- Unprotected electronic devices, jewelry that could fall off, or loose valuables

Alcohol is allowed in cans and in small personal-sized coolers for those who are interested in cabrewing.

Boats, paddles, and life jackets are all provided by the livery.

PolyColumbus monthly meeting will be a week from today on Monday, August 11th at the Columbus Insight Center (4161 N High St, Columbus) from 7-9PM.

This month's topic is Partnership Dynamics: Navigating NRE, Supporting your Partners, Saying Good-bye. After the meeting closes at 9PM, some members go to Bob's Bar to continue the social hour.

Rules of the Meeting:
1) Respect anonymity of the people in attendance when talking to others in your life. Not everyone is out of the closet and some could risk losing jobs or suffering great personal cost from being outed.
2) No cross talking. Larger groups necessitate patience and respect. Only one person should be talking at a time.
3) Don't give advice unless advice is asked for.
4) This is not a pick-up joint, this is a support group. If you would like to build connections or flirt, head to Bob's Bar after the meeting or attend one of the social events that we organize.
5) Respect diversity, differing opinions, and lifestyle choices.
6) This meeting space is a drug and alcohol free zone.

Hope to see you there!

Come join us for a night of singing Karaoke at Mickey's Bar (1230 West 5th Avenue
Grandview Heights, Ohio 43212). Karaoke starts at 9:30 and continues until the bar closes. This is a CASH ONLY bar, so make sure to come prepared to purchase items at the bar.

This event is most appropriate for adults, aged 21 and older. This venue is a very popular karaoke location, so if you want to sing, make sure to get in early and get your name on the list. We will be there early to try and get a few tables together.

As always, feel free to flirt and making connections, but be mindful of the signals you are receiving from others and be aware that not everyone is open to or looking for new partners.

Website is included below for the company that runs the karaoke through the bar. Song lists should be available through the website so you can check in advance if there is something you know you want to sing.

See you there!

Put on your best costume and join the PolyColumbus folks for Highball Halloween, one of the nation's best Halloween parties. High Street in the Short North from Goodale Street to Nationwide Blvd closes down to make room for a costume couture fashion show, live music, a performance by Nina West, costume contests, and a dance party with thousands of people.

We'll be meeting in front of the Hilton at 401 N. High St. around 8pm. We'll be holding up a PolyColumbus sign in case you don't recognize us in costume. Admission is $5.

Check the website for parking/transportation and other tips: www.highballcolumbus.org.
