    I was thinking...that instead of this huge seminar filled weekend.


    We scale it down a bit. A LARGE BIT.

    Perhaps for the FIRST convention...we start small. I think people have gotten so use to going to large work conventions or gaming conventions (Which have huge corporate sponsors) that they don't realize what all goes into the planning of something like that.


    I think we need to just do maybe a big thing at a state park. Rent the conference hall or pavilion. . . . . Order something small from a caterer. .

    and just hang out.

    EXACTLY....


    I have a better idea.

    Mission Beach.

    Hotels. TONS of parks, places for cook outs, shallow swimming area for kids and adults, TONS of big open grassy areas, grills which are free to use, lots of pavillions, sea world is literally like two miles away for those that wanna do that, ummm it's like perfect location. But of course I am totally biased but you really can't beat the perfect weather, because then you don't have to plan around rain and heat and cold and all that shiz. Plus you get mountains, beach, and everything in between.

    You dont?! There are like a dozen polls already. There is already a thread about donations. They are discussing ideas for seminars and we don't even have a date much less a STATE...

    Discussing Passion Parties and other consultants. Hotel sharing and car pooling...

    It just seems everything is so spastic and scattered.

    NAIL ON HEAD. thats sooooo what i was thinking.

    casual, affordable, driving distance for tons of members.



    and kyley... the subcommittee to plan the agenda and day-to-day activities is ME and JayBo, so far. our PMs and emails basically say: we're not doing anything until we have a location, dates, venue and length of event.

    i'd say you're in GOOD hands.

    Exactly!

    And I'd be totally cool with NO "Consultants".

    And that way if say when I kidnap Rose and Dommie to go have a couple drinks... No one will notice they are gone

    It needs to be someplace that is fairly big enough where its cheap to fly into, EASY to fly into without a million transfers, and can be vacationy for families. I wouldn't hang out in the midwest or anyplace not on the ocean with my husband. DH loves to freedive and spearfish so anyplace florida like or san diego or NC like would be ideal. I don't think DH and I will make it to san diego before we move in a month and I've had a huge desire to see sea world.

    i think san diego is wicked easy to get to, and even though i'm soooo down with some sea world action, even if that's not your style - there's sooo much to do. i think we'll be good to go!
