Now we need to be serious about this. Randy is the guy that started, and runs the site right? Then I agree, we should throw down closs to him in Illinois. I'm from NY, but I'd be willing to troop it there, if and only if it'll be worth it though. We need to take many things into consideration when planning something like this. Do we want a something big like a weekend thing at a hotel with a banquet hall, awards to give out, prizes, etc. or just a day thing where we meet and chill. And if we meet, what are we gonna do? How many members are seriously willing to come, where will we accomodate all these INtreps(concords, and whomever else also), and most importantly, where will we get the money for all this? Before we even discuss where we're gonna go we need to come up with what we wanna do, and a place big enough to accomodate that many member. There are 1000+ members, but how many are serious ones that participate. HOw many of those can actually troop it to wherever we intend to meet. How many can fit a meet into their schedule.
Personally, i admit this'll be tough, but I'm down, and i'm willing to help whomever has a great idea. i'm trying to come up w/ one, but we have to be serious about what we'r ewilling to do.
