    MSOS Convention

    Advertisements
    There was discussion last year about a possible MSOS convention/G2G and things kinda got put on hold. Just wanting to know everyones opinion on this (as we have a lot of new members since the begining of the year).

    Good idea or bad idea?
    1 big one or smaller ones?
    What would you like from it?

    Just so everyone knows, if we do go ahead with this, it would probably not be until next summer (so people have time to save up) and we will be asking for people to volunteer to help organize (please don't volunteer now, we will ask later).

    I think doing one big one would be awesome... Getting us all together at one location would just be such a blast.
    Suggestions...
    You might try and find possibly some sponsors or something to donate or do something to help make coming to this convention worth wild ya know what I mean?

    I also like the one big one... We could organize a slide show maybe of memorable moments and it would be great if we all got together in one location.

    i think one big one would be great so we can meet people from all over!
    if you can find a path with no obstacles, then it probably doesn't lead anywhere....


    i love me some RED HOT!!

    To the bolded that is one of the things that came up in discussion last year. If it was just a g2g, it would basically be a bbq type thing, 1 day and people were saying they would want to bring the family to it. If we did a proper convention, we would get sponsorers to help cover cost of things, have dinners, guest speakers, outings, a dance, etc and it would probably be over a weekend (Friday night- Sunday Lunch), MSOS members only

    With smaller ones we can set up webcams so that we can all see eachother as well.

    I voted for a few smaller ones, but I like the idea of this sort-of like the way my family does their reunions. Every few years, we all get together in one place. But in the off years, the family from each region gathers for a weekend or so.

    So: maybe one convention per region, or three in the US, a few internationally one summer, and a big one the next summer?

    I like one big one

    but a bunch of small one would be more convenient for everyone probably

    As much as I love the idea of one big one, I feel it's more realistic for a few smaller ones.
