40 days, 14 pages - and still no decision.

I think if you're gonna start a big meet thread, someone (maybe the OP) should take a little initiative.

This is ridiculous LOL

I only started this thread because there wasn't anyone else who wanted to. Problem with this meet is, I didn't really get the feeling that anyone really cared. Everyone was pretty much split on the location and dates, so you'd have half the people should up with another percentage who would backout the last minute. Plus most of the senior members are either busy with vacation, work, autocross, etc. Also, you can't setup an Alberta-wide meet without a decent host like lightspeed or VEX and make it a multi-day event. Honestly, would anyone really drive 3-5 hours just to stand around in SL?

Do you guys need a leader who's planned successful meets, has an awesome personality and enjoys a challenge?

ZEV IS YOUR GUY! Hahaha sucker.

WTF? :P

Glenn, didn't you do that last meet in Red Deer?

Snackers and I worked on that one in Edmonton last year.


Listen, about all the indecisiveness, a large meet needs someone who just makes the decision and then sticks with it. Fact is, if given more than a few weeks notice, a lot of members will make the trip. Why? Because a) We love driving our cars, and b) with enough notice, you can plan around the meet if you're interested in going. Waiting around for everyone to agree is pointless because everyone is going to be busy at different times. Pick a date that's still a ways away and those who can make it, will. You'll get some people who complain that they can't make it, but that's always going to be the case.

Pick a date. Pick a location. If you really want to put it to a vote. Max 2 choices. Given too many choices, the vote gets too split up. Its like Canadian politics.

Go home Subaru. You're drunk.

Big events usually work better when the participants don't get a choice in when/where/etc.  The organizer picks a day, location, time.  If people want to come, they will be there, even if it means making sacrifices.

That's how big sporting events, concerts, festivals, etc. work.  If the event is important enough to me, I will be there regardless of when, where, or what time it is.

Maybe the WSC super meet doesn't compare the Stanley Cup finals or a big show at the Saddledome, but I'm willing to bet that there are more than a few people here who are willing to do what they need to do to be there!

Before we get more crazy posts of "lets go here" "no lets go there" "no, I want ice cream", I'll post this.

I'm working on something. I have no idea what yet. I will post sometime today with further details.
And yes, I will be my usual jerk self, and post details with few or no options.
You can make it, or you can't.
Deal.

Locked because 14 pages is just ridiculous.

Stay tuned for snackers' I-have-no-idea-what-yet-but-something supermeet thread, coming soon to a screen near you.
