    Dont forget that a lot of hotels have meeting places in them. The first thing you have to do is get some sort of approximate date and a bit of a headcount, then check into venues. If less then 100 or so ppl are interested then you only need a small place like in the hotel. Lock in date and place as soon as possible. Also the bigger the place the higher the cost for sponsers, and guests. Maybe setting a limit of how many come might be a good idea. Doing this at an off time of the meet in Allentown (theirs is in summer-have a late fall winter meet)is a good idea too to increase attendance at both.

    I DID IT!! I finished the ToT 13K! It was actually harder than I ever imagined to be honest. BUT I just kept moving, just keep moving...(could barely move AFTER the race, lol)

    Next trip: ???? I almost always have one on the horizon, but given the economy...who knows when I'll get back after this trip!!

    I'm sitting in Naperville at work right now. I've always dreamed of a disneymeet in the midwest. I would love it if it came true.

    then lets do it....I'm sure Lou would share his knowledge of the allentown meet - and maybe we could convince him to come be a speaker?!? We don't even have to have big time speakers...and if we know anyone who owns or runs a travel agency in the chicago area - perhaps they'll help sponsor it....

    Seriously, if we can get 20 people or so to say lets go....then lets go!!

    someone should contact Lou then and ask him what we should do. Maybe he'd be able to help set things up or knows someone who would.

    Count me in for a mid-west meet. I tried to go to Allentown but it was impossible to get a resonable flight schedule from here. Chicago is one of my favorite places and very easy to get to. Nashville is another area to consider. It is very central for many people. :mickey:

    Hiya putting on Basic meet

    If we can get at least 100 preregisterd and have an idea when Where and How much
    How many room nghts to have Hotel set a side.
    Event insurance for bad weather etc un used rooms must be payed for
    Guest of honor Depending on what kind of agreement we can arrange them
    Hotel function space how little or how much
    Dealers or sponsors rooms. Art sales ? charity auction or very basic
    costume Ball or contest just very basic ideas can be reworked easy

    Thease are the basics
    its hard to organize this way

    If we can Dream then we can do it
    Timon

    We could probably get some guidance and advice from the man himself, Fred Block.

    LIke Tammi said...if we get 20 ppl we are good to go. Set a date and city first and foremost. Do a poll to see when and where most ppl would like to go. Then go by majority. PLease lets do this on the off season...it is sooooooo much cheaper for rooms and more chance of getting ppl who wouldnt be able to afford peak season(aka-summer) PM me if you want on this. I love planning things.

    I'm okay during NOT summer, as long as we don't go where its too COLD!!

    So, lets get it going - we've suggested a couple locations, so lets start a poll with that...we've heard Chicago, and Nashville...anything else? I once went to Myrtle beach in October - ocean front rooms were dirt cheap, tho the ocean was too cold to play in it was still a fun place to be for a couple days (for those who would make the trip a couple days long)...any other city suggestions?? I'll also throw out Columbus OH (or Dayton or Cincinnati) - simply because its fairly close to me.

    Vixen - want to start a poll? I don't know how to do that...
