Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at 1 PM on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Advanced Health, 289 Laclair St, Coos Bay, OR 97420. Note time change – 1 PM!

The main topic is “DISASTER SURVIVAL PLANNING WORKSHOPS FOR FAMILIES”. This year SWOP will be conducting workshops during the meetings. Bring your plan to the workshop. If you do not have a plan to bring that is OK, you will have one to take home when you leave. Bring paper and pencil. Attend this workshop to help your family, whether large or small, survive a disaster.

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

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at COB Cottage Company, 94006 Ginger, Coquille, OR 97423.

We will be learning how to build with COB. The word cob comes from an old English root meaning a lump or rounded mass. Cob building uses hands and feet to form lumps of earth mixed with sand and straw, a sensory and aesthetic experience similar to sculpting with clay. You will get dirty so wear appropriate clothing.

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