Forming Groups

Let us know if you'd like to head up a group!  Basically that just means putting forward an idea, and helping spread the word.  It's simple:

  • post your idea for a group
  • tell your friends about it
  • when 5 people say they're interested we'll email everyone
  • the group sets up a day each month for the group to recur
  • enjoy your community

Book Exchange

Just an idea: What if the Locals used the back room as a used book store. Or a community library. Or some kind of book exchange. Conway needs a good used book store. We need it bad.

Talking about Ferguson MO

The events in Ferguson Missouri over the last week have been tragic in the loss of a life and the undercurrent of racism and dehumanization that it has exposed. Events like the shooting of Michael Brown are all too common in America these days, but what sets this shooting apart is not any aspect of its unique horror, but the valiant and brave response of the community in which it happened. The people of Ferguson have refused to be silent in their call for justice and have achieved international coverage and support for their struggle.  The gulf between the Ferguson Police department and the community that they were sworn to protect did not happen over night, nor was it inevitable that another black kid was going to end up dead in the streets. I am new to the conway area, but I have ties to what is going on in ferguson and would like to know if there are people in this area that see the issue of racism as one worth talking about and mobilizing around before it is someone from conway that we are mourning.

Bike Polo

For the longest time I've been hoping to find 6 or more (3 aside) individuals interested in playing Bike Polo on a regular basis in Conway.  I propose an organizing meeting at The Locals to sort out mallets and date/time of pick-up games..  I'd suggest that games occur in the parking lot adjacent Rogers Plaza and the Chamber on Saturday evenings when it isn't otherwise used. (or the parking lot of the vacant bank on Markham).

A group to read and discuss literature over coffee (or tea).  Would meet once a month.
