Preppers to meet in Coos Bay Oct. 17

Southwestern Oregon Preppers will hold their monthly meeting at noon on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Coos Bay Fire Department, 450 Elrod, Coos Bay.

The main topic is “Conflicted.” “Conflicted: The Survival Card Game” is a brand new way for survivalists to share their philosophies about prepping. It’s a game that can be a serious conversation between established prepper groups, or it can be a fun way to introduce someone to the concept of prepping. Conflicted helps you show other preppers why you are prepping, why your reason for prepping matters, and what your survival philosophy is when choosing life vs. your morals.

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.
