Hi all! I've been trying to plan a meetup in the Denver Metro area. The last one fell through, but I'd love to try again! I'm thinking a lunch-time picnic at one of the parks/reservoirs in the Denver area (with a swim beach, obviously) on a Saturday or Sunday sometime this summer. A few that I know are Chatfield State Park (Littleton), Bear Creek Lake Park (Lakewood), and Cherry Creek Reservoir (Aurora). Entrance is $10 or less (depending on park) per car.

If anyone is interested in joining and/or has a date/location suggestion, please post!! If there's interest but no specifics, I'll throw out a random date and location, and we can adjust from there :)

This sounds like a splendid idea~ Just getting into this community myself and would love to make friends if I can. I love costume making but don't have a tail yet; would not having a tail(s) be acceptable at this meet? I hale from Lakewood~ Thank you for trying to assemble some folks! : )

I'm so glad there's some interest! Do either of you have any particular days that work really well and/or not at all? Any suggestions/preferences on location? I feel like the sooner we can get a date and location set, the better the turnout will be.

Oh, wonderful! Thank you so much for your quick reply~ Any day during the week works for me ( just need a few days ahead of time to plan my work around it ), I'm sorry I'm not too much help picking a day~ ; u ; As far as location though, Bear Creek Lake Park, and Cherry Creek Reservoir seem the most central to the Denver area. Wish we knew more about the locals and which would be more convenient for them. Perhaps it's best just to pick one and see how it goes!

I'd love to try Bear Creek Lake Park. I learned about it when I drove past it a couple months ago, and it was so beautiful with the mountains right there behind it!

A Saturday or Sunday would work best for me. Do we want to try for July or August? (I think the swim beaches are closed after Labor Day, which is the beginning of September.)

I've never personally been but I looked up photos and it's a lovely spot~ Sometime on a weekend should work well too! I wouldn't be able to do July 16th, or August 11th~15th as I have events I'm working those days. So...how about July 23rd, 24th, 30th, or 31st? Gives us some time to maybe get a few more folks together~ If it goes well maybe we can find an indoor place to meet up during the colder months. I think someone mentioned a pool that was tail friendly for those who have tails in the other thread. ' u '

Ok, let's say Bear Creek Lake Park for the July meetup. I'll be out of town the 30th/31st, but the 23rd or 24th works for me!

Sounds good, I'll write it in my planner!

I'm going to wait to see if anyone else has any input on whether to go on Saturday (23rd) or Sunday (24th), and then we can finalize. :)

Have a friend ( also into mermaids ) who says she's interested in coming as well, she just needs to angle to get one of those days off from work~ : )

YAY!! And we haven't picked between Saturday (23rd) or Sunday (24th) yet, so let us know if one of those works better for your family! :)

Any additional feedback on whether Saturday (23rd) or Sunday (24th) works better? If not, I'm gonna say Saturday the 23rd. Let me know (soon!) if that doesn't work for anymer :)

DONE! Let's set it for the 23rd. I made a public fb event, if anyone wants to keep in touch there and/or invite friends not on MerNetwork: https://www.facebook.com/events/2065830136976460/

Hi. Florida merman here. My friend in Denver is talking about flying me to Denver sometime this year to visit. If that does happen, it would be great to meetup for a swim. Once I have a remote idea when, I'll keep everyone posted.

Just moved to Denver! I'm in the planning stages of my tail, but I wouldn't mind meeting up at some point once things calm down!

I'm also an out of state merman, but got my besto in, and I'd love to get over there and hang out with her and everyone else too. :)

Calysta the Mermaid of The MerFriends (Texas) is on a roadtrip across the midwest with her friends and family, and she would LOVE to meet up with some merfolk in the Colorado area. Is there an active pod and can she stop in for a swim with you in the next couple of weeks?

Hey Colorado mers, I know of a great indoor pool with a large deep end if anybody wants to meet up there sometime, it's the Meyers pool in Arvada. I swam there when I only had a monofin and it was great. I just finished making my tail a couple months ago and haven't had a chance to try it out in a proper deep pool!

I know no-one has posted in this thread since 2018, but I am so pleased to see so many mer's in the Denver area. When I first returned to Denver after living in North Carolina I couldn't seen to find anyone. Once things start to get back to normal I hope there will be more meet-ups.
