WSC Super Meet - Thank You!
« on: September 22, 2008, 10:25:32 AM »
Hey Guys,

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped organize the Super Meet yesterday. It was awesome to see you guys take the ideas and run with them. Thanks also to those who put forth their ideas and helped make it such a great success. You guys know who you are.

Thanks especially to Snackers, who dealt with all the food orders. Without him, it would have been a lot more disorganized and we would have been hungrier.

Finally, thanks to everyone who showed up. At last count, I found there to be 46 Subarus who showed up at the Second Cup. The meet was a great success.

Lesson for next time: Schedule an actual cruise between the meet-up and dinner cause it seemed thats what a lot of people wanted to do.

Thanks again, and I hope to see you all between now and the next meet.

Agreed.  That's why I went cruising after dinner.

Good meet everyone, and thanks.

Absolutely.  It was awesome to finally meet some people and put faces to names.  I'm dissapointed that I didn't make it to the Second Cup meet, but BP's was great!

With the incredible help and wealth of information that this club has been, I figured it was the least I could do to make a few phonecalls while at work trying to avoid thinking about how I hate my job. :)

Its my little thanks to everyone who has answered my newb questions without making me feel dumb (I feel that enough at the meets when people are talking way over my head with parts, but I'm learning).

A note for food next time, individual orders.
I tried to save everyone a few bucks by combining to large pizza's, but it seemed a little confusing to pay at the end. Sorry about that guys.

Very big thanks to all that helped planned this especially snakers for dealing with the food headache! I hope it all worked out in the end...

I think the meet went very well even if it was a bit cool out!

 Things for next year to consider I think would be having it in the middle of summer rather then in september, possibly on a saturday (for the ones that might like to spend the night). And perhaps locating it in a Larger parking lot to organize a large group photo somewhere? I think those are the only 2 things that might have improved an already awesome meet.

yeah. i think for next year we should get on it a bit earlier and that way can plan things out better.
