I would like to try to set up a weekend to have several get togethers for the O.C. I believe we are simply too spread out to try to have one - even centralized.
I am thinking between 2 and 5 get togethers on the same weekend!! We could take a poll, but there is no way any day would be perfect for everyone. So, I propose with the holidays coming up, that we try to do it the weekend before Thanksgiving which is November 17th/18th.
What we really need is a couple guys to step up to the plate and try to coordinate a meeting near them. I will take the NE quadrant (unless someone really wants to do it instead).
I am thinking; NE, NW, SE, SW and possibly central. So we'd need a volunteer from each of the other districts. I will leave it up to each coordinator on the day and time. You could do a night out on the 17th or maybe a breakfast on the 18th, whatever.
The coordinator would be responsible for: setting up a location, date and time. Calling that venue to let them know you will be having a few people from our organization there. If enough will be attending, you can usually get a private seating/eating area. Oversee the events and send everyone home!!
You could ask for a special area in the parking lot so all members could park their trucks side x side for photo ops, etc. Oh, and take a few pics to post afterward!! Any other events would be up to the coordinator to set up; darts, pool games, bingo, whatever!!! haha!
To make it more fun, I'm thinking maybe the coordinator who has the largest number of participants (member or non-member) can win a prize. I realize the prize might not be anything special but something!!
Let's start with this; any volunteers for the other districts???
