I'll go ahead and post my idea of what I'd like this to be. A GTG somewhere not too far from where folks live. If we get folks from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas then maybe Joplin, MO or something in that 4 corner area. It can be just a meet at a restaurant or we could see about a park or lake for a cook out.

If we don't get folks from all these states then we can move it so it is closer to the folks that can make it.

I'm going to try to contact some companies for some prizes to give away.

I didn't put a close date on this poll but I'll end it when the KC poll ends in 10 days. Then we can start working on a place.

Now these are just my ideas and they are not rules or written in stone. They are just ideas and your ideas are just as important.

Some more ideas I'd like to kick around. I will have some dash plaques made for this and will have packets for all who attend. Trying to get packet items now and I'd also like to have some prizes to give away at a drawing.

If any of the other CL's or members would like add to this please do. We could even have a design contest for a logo for this event.

Guess it's time for an update. Ken is sending me some goodies. I have others I will contact also. Dash plaques will be easy and I'll get working on those next month.

I'll get a location poll up after the date poll ends tomorrow.

Looks like the date will be Saturday October 14th for the south GTG. Now we need to decide on a location.

Joplin, MO, KS Rocks (Ft. Scott, KS area) and Baxter Springs, KS have been suggested. I've been looking at the map and Grand Lake looks pretty good. Need some help from the Arkansas folks. The only thing I see that looks like it might work is maybe Chambers Hollow area. East of Siloam Springs. I'm just working off some old Delorme map software so any help would be welcome. Give me some more ideas and we'll get a location poll going.

grand is such a mess this time of year. too many people, not enough room.

a small lake or river park would probably be best, fewer people to contend with that way.

there are lots of beautifull places in arkansas and missouri to pick from. mabey figure the area with the most coming and make it a little closer to them.

looks like i'll be driving the farthest huh!

Last weekend for the poll. Right now it's tied between Siloam Springs (one of the votes dose not count) and Neosho with KS Rocks just one vote back. So if you have been waiting to vote nows the time. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/52...tion-poll.html

I have stickers, 8 shirts, two books, stickers, tool accessories, video games/computer accessory, stickers, vehicle accessories, Koozies, stickers and some pins. I'll add a few gift certificates and dash plaques. And a few other items if I can.

I'll have packets with goodies for the first 15 trucks that show up. Packets will have a dash plaque for the event, stickers, and other items such as pens, or pins, key chains, koozie ect.... I will also enclose a raffle ticket in the packet for a drawing for the shirts and other items. Additional tickets will be available.

I plan to have the KS. chapter banner set up. Other chapters are welcome to display a banner.

I plan to drive to the area that wins the location poll next week and make final arrangements. It was brought up that an outdoors location would be our first choice so we can have more time and activities. I will get an indoor location as a back up. Just in case the weather does not want us to have this outside.

I'm really looking forward to this.

I'm going to change what I posted earlier about the first 15 trucks. We had talked about car or truck pooling to this event so it should be the first 15 FTE members.
