Same reason the other chapters were closed Aaron, Inactivity & not choosing a C/L.
This wasn't just an overnight decision.I have been watching and asking & re-asking about who the chapter's are. I would get one or two responses and then that would die.

Maybe now that some users can see we aren't kidding about closing them, they might get busy and actually do something.

One chapter in a 2 week period ,had tons of Parts for sale threads but, they couldn't take a day & elect someone for C/L.

It doesn't stop once the CL has been appointed , It takes ClubFTE activity to stay alive.

By getting as many people on side to making sure the chapter stays active with each other & promote FTE regionally.

One way to figure stuff out is to see what other chapter's are doing.

Having the human spirit for socializing shouldn't be that tough.

ok how do i get elected for the C/L position. This is the most annoying thing to figure out. I love this site and enjoy the people but my thoughts are whats the point for closing it. how much bandwidth does it really take up? If you could tell me how to hold an election for the c/l i'd appriciate it. i've had 2 people already say they'll vote for me so do i have them email you or what? Thanks Dennis.

This thread should provide some answers on electing a CL,

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=296418

and you can use a online poll for the election process.

A nomination thread has to be created then when all the names of who is running are collected (if they meet the criteria) a voting thread will ve created.
If the users of that forum get their stuff together,you could have a CL elected by Friday.
I will open that forum to elect a CL,If that can't be accomplished by say Saturday,I will reclose the chapter.

Just let me know here.

Why close it anyway?

Because users aren't/weren't taking an interest in what the chapters are created for.
They were just using them for chit chat or trying to buy,sell,trade parts.
Some chapters were created by me that didn't meet the criteris from the start.
I was hoping that users would be more interested than what they were so I left them open as long as I could. That didn't work..

We even have well-established chapters that will close of a leader isn't elected.

You can run solo but you still need 5 people from that chapter to vote for you (It's the democratic way).

Let me know when you want it open to do the voting thing.
