Who would be in for a virtual wingnight using one of these video chat platforms?

For those that are new, a wingnight has traditionally been an in-person gathering at a restaurant or campground. It is a great opportunity to put a name to face.
One of the earlier ones was at a Buffalo Wild Wings which is how it got its name.

That a great idea. Count me in. All I have to do is figure out the technology.

We may do google meet instead of zoom since zoom meetings are only 45 minutes long and knowing this crew 45 minutes is pretty short. I can host 100 people in a google meet.
 
11/19/2020 12:01PM  
Sounds like a plan I would like to do. Depends on date, time and wife's ability to do the tech.

Have never done google meet, but if it is like Zoom we probably can handle it. Would need instructions.

No guarantee, depends upon when you do it. But it is a fun idea.

A brief survey to see if we can find a date/time along with a couple of other questions.

If you are on a phone, you may want to use this link instead:

Hey Adam - Any way you could turn the BWCA.com Chat Room into a Video Chat Room? We could have spontaneous Wing Nights popping up all the time!

If you have requested to be invited, please check your email for an invite to "BWCA Virtual Wingnight". If you receive it, there will be a link to connect to the wingnight. I would recommend clicking this before the event starts to you can walk through any steps to join it.
