    You can always create something new in addition to the one that is currently on Mondays. The first bulletin board party we hosted was in 1999 at the Kokoa (now it's the Bugaloe). After that it was always hard choosing a spot and a date that accommodated everyone's schedule every year so we created the weekly Monday night bulletin board parties in 2004 at Amsterdam Manor's beach bar - we'll be there on May 8 and May 15..............

    if my memory is correct, when the amsterdam manor bulletin board gathering began, they were held at the AM pool bar.

    i look forward to the possibility of legends being added in.

    Yes, we held them at the pool bar from 2001-2003 until they built the beach bar. But back then they weren't every Monday. We would just gather as many people from the various Aruba bulletin boards who were on the island/wanted to join the party and we'd arrange a bulletin board happy hour followed by a sunset sail with Red Sail. Those were a lot of work but a lot of fun!

    We think 2 different chances to meet up with forum members would be great. If you cant make AM maybe you can make Legends. Does anyone know if Scott and Leslie are doing the licence plates at Legends too?

    There is a group known as the Swamp Monkeys, not sure where they originated, but it's my understanding that the AM is their preferred gathering and depending on the week, they may be the only ones attending.

    They have been on the original Aruba bulletin board/forum for 10+ years (that bulletin board was created around 1997 and is still active.)

    There are people who attend who are from Trip Advisor, Aruba-travelguide.com, etc - always fun to meet new people!

    I am one of the so called swamp monkeys and am more active on the Aruba BB, but do lurk here. I do know some of the more active posters here. In fact, I rent from aquaman for many years now. I like going to the AM meetings as there are always people I know. Some of them became my friends. But I am always open to meeting other people and the place doesn't matter as I am not staying on either Palm or Eagle Beach. I might come if it is on another evening and you will accept a swamp monkey.
