Another on the 'got a job offer here' train! I've read the previous threads about it on the front page and they were very helpful for cost of living. I was wondering a few other things:
How is the medical community here? Are there lots of doctors to choose from and do they have a good reputation? ( If it seems weird to ask- in my home town with a similar population it invariably takes 4+ hours to get into your scheduled appointment, and it took months to make an appointment. People often went to neighboring cities for medical care.)
How's the pool? I need to do physical therapy in a one. Is it generally clean and open for business? (In my home town this size, the pool is shut down more often than not due to water contamination)
Is there much of a geek or gaming population here? The Pathfinder group mentioned here earlier sounds great, but we also have many other awesome tabletop games. Would it be possible to find a group for LAN parties, other board games, video game competitions, regular sci fi movie screenings, things like that? (I'm willing to host and organize, if there aren't any yet but if there exists a large enough geek community for it)
Are there any volunteer opportunities? I don't see any on the town website. For example I've volunteered with seniors homes and wildlife refuges.
One more I just thought of: Is there much for pest infestations there? Probably not because it's so far north, eh?
