  • @downburst  Jan 28

    Chime in! We're haltingly trying to get a meetup going. Feel free to volunteer to organize.

    Also, be aware of https://www.facebook.com/groups/mifaw... if you're not already.

  • @stuartbenbow  Jan 28

    Hey, good to see you onboard already. 😀

  • @zecoop  Jan 28

    Woot woot.... here we are again!! 😀

  • @toms  Jan 28


  • @kale Jan 28

    Checking in.

  • @b00n  Jan 28

    So, no shenanigans doing 'gander' in here, yet?

  • @downburst  Jan 28

    Absolutely not!

  • @kovbleu  Jan 28


  • @charliecheney  Jan 28

    I left MI in 2013, but I stop in periodically.

  • @jimmyadame Jan 29

    Hey fam

  • @scottlake Jan 29

    Left in 2009, but was in Spring Arbor over the holidays. Did not get a coney this time back and regretting it.

  • @cmharwood89  Jan 29

    My new home in Iowa seems a bit light on fawmers. Can I come hang out with you guys? Does it count if I still have Michigan plates on my car?

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    Always welcome... My brother @guatecoop is in the club too as an ex-resident. We've got the best group anyway, lol. 😀

  • @seanbrennan  Jan 30

    Hello, fellow Mitten-dwellers! I'm in the same part of the state as the last (and only) time I "won"... is this a good omen? 😁

  • @zecoop  Jan 30

    @seanbrennan - that's awesome but you are already a winner because you live in The Mitten.

  • @downburst  Jan 30

    Sean! Where are you nowadays?

  • @thebschip Jan 30

    Hi mates! Look, I figured out how to use forums after 6 years!

  • @thebschip Jan 30

    Watchlist updated. 😀

  • @danvaillancourt  Jan 30

    Back again. 😀 This will be 10th year... which I assume is called a decaFAWM.

  • @resonut123  Jan 30

    Yes I'll be going at it again even though I still have major health issues.
    FAWM will help me greatly!!!
    Cinco De FAWMo - my 5th FAWM.

  • @dearanna7 Jan 30

    First year doing FAWM! Pretty excited!

  • @toms  Jan 31

    Greetings, @dearanna7 ! Join us over on Facebook too, if you haven't! 😀 Downburst has the link above!

  • @jenfoss  Jan 31

    Sweetness! I am in the great state of MI. Time to get watchlistin' again. 😀

  • @downburst  Feb 1

    Welcome Jen!

  • @downburst  Feb 1

    (Hey y'all, I have quit Facebook for the time being, so if anything untoward happens in the MI Fawmers group, I won't see it. Right now I'm the only admin, but anyone can approve/add new people I believe. Let me know if I'm needed there.)

  • @jessicaintherainbow Feb 13

    I was in Chicago last time I did FAWM, but I live in West MI now 😀 Anyone else around the GR area?

  • @zecoop  Feb 13

    Hi @jessicaintherainbow - I'm just West of Kalamazoo... 😀

  • @kovbleu  Feb 13


  • @toms  Feb 13

    Hi, @jessicaintherainbow !

  • @jessicaintherainbow Feb 22

    Awesome 😀 Hi @zecoop and @kovbleu (and hi @toms 😀

  • @ppmusic2010 Mar 1

    Late arrival here from Midland (but I work in Saginaw, and go to SVSU)!

  • @stuartbenbow  Mar 1

    So, with FAWM winding down to the final hours, what are peoples thoughts on a post-fawm bash? My schedule's about to get a little screwy, so I won't know which weekend's I've got free for another week, but I'm always up for a party when I'm not working. Whether you managed to create an account and stare at paper, wrote a few, finished, or excelled beyond all reason, what are your thoughts?

  • @guatecoop  Mar 1

    I'm in....I'm in Ohio, but was born in Michigan and lived there through elementary school.

  • @toms  Mar 1

    Welcome, @ppmusic2010 ! Are you in our Facebook group?

    Stuart, I'm nearly totally free any weekend, which is unprecedented. 😀

  • @ppmusic2010 Mar 1

    @toms I'm not in the Facebook group.

  • @seanbrennan  Mar 1

    Like Stuart, my schedule is about to get screwy, and in fact I think St. Patrick's Day Weekend may be my only work-free one. But I have never done an in-person FAWM meetup, and if something could work I'd love that!

  • @toms  Mar 2

    @ppmusic2010 , look for Michigan FAWMers. 😀 39 amazing people strong! 😁

  • @downburst  Mar 2

    We just had a mini-FOP tonight, with me, @zecoop, @stuartbenbow (and Dawn), with @followawackymoose (and Anne) lurking suspiciously at another table nearby by some kind of sinister concidence.

  • @stuartbenbow  Mar 2

    We're really starting to grow. Last night was fun, if way too short. Hoping we can put together a larger musical gathering.

  • @kovbleu  Mar 2

    Great FAWM - Michigan peoples!!!

  • @zecoop  Mar 3

    @stuartbenbow - Great meeting you and your wife!
    @downburst - Once again fun catching up with you. 😀

    It was too short, but hope we can figure out something that avoids a blizzard this year. 😀

  • @kovbleu  Mar 3

    There was a Michigan party??!!

  • @resonut123  Mar 3

    Truthfully, I like Michigander!

  • @downburst  Mar 4

    Don't make me bust out the banhammer, Lavens.

    *raises eyebrow*

  • @zecoop  Mar 4

    @kovbleu - I went to a concert at The Ark on Wednesday and Rod, Stuart and I got together, with Matt avoiding us. 😉

  • @downburst  Mar 4

    Any room with John in it is a party.

  • @toms  Mar 22

    Yes, sir. 😀

  • @stevejordan  Mar 30

    For what it's worth...I spent the first year of life in Muskegon before discovering illinois,oregon washington botswana and washington again.
    A great place to have come from!

  • @thebschip Apr 11

    What's a FOP?

  • @zecoop  Apr 11

    @thebschip - FAWM Over Party because we Michiganders like to party like Michiganians. (@downburst @toms)
