Unhappy Re: Regional Co-ords?

I am starting to get a very negative feeling to this thread from a lot of the answers, and I honestly do'nt see why! The question raised was could some local area meets be arranged by the Forum and a lot of the replys are no,join another club etc. I belong to other forums/clubs but spend most of my time on this one as I have found through meeting and PMing that people on here are friendly and easy going so why not give the local area idea a go and allow the people who cannot travel to the main Forum meets/shows a chance to meet up.

Thats my lot on the subject as I do not want to fall out with any one over this.

Steve

Re: Regional Co-ords?

Steve the point of discussion is that there is pros and cons, go through both the pros and cons

And i said were discussing things backstage anyway. I am giving my opinion and so is everyone else, i dont think anyone would be that petty to fall out with someone who disagrees with them

Not everyone will agree with each other, but my prediction is.....

If this goes ahead then people will be up for it at first then it will fizzle away and just the odd one or two people attending..

Steve we do have local meets LOL

Re: Regional Co-ords?

aww we dont need to fall out over this , we all sensible enough to have a discussion

the only problem monthly meets are the venues, most wont want you on there property , it isnt to bad if you going there once and never be seen there again

a pub, cinema, bowling, etc... car park would be best, as you could have something to do, so enjoying yourself and giving them trade, everyones a winner

sammi or claire cannot organise regional meets, its up to the individuals who know the area to do so

i would sort it out amongst yourselves who would be a regional co-ord , there may be individuals, there may be teams, but remember that you are promoting this forum , so best behaviour

No no no! The replies aren't join another club. The replies are along the lines of "People can organise meets themselves if they want". In terms of whether the forum can organise them, you have to ask "who is the forum?". If you mean the moderators, then there are only a limited number of them, most of them have personal lives outside of FF, and they don't cover every region. Besides which, they haven't been democratically elected (because the forum is run at Ben's discretion), so if you don't like the way they do it, tough. If you mean the forum users, then fine, but someone needs to volunteer, and they need to commit to finishing off the organising.
In relation to migweb, it's a club, with an open-to-all forum, in the same way FCCUK is. I know the FCCUK committee members work really hard to organise things, and it's professionally done. But it does cost money.

Re: Regional Co-ords?

LOL Life outside of FF..... why didnt someone tell me

Personally i dont see the problem with people organising their own mini meets, it just seems like the people that want them would rather somone else do the hard work.
