To Ryan and Matt:
Can i suggest we change the meet to another location? Perhaps a place of business that serves food, drink and has a large parking area (In addition BATHROOMS)??
I used to organize car meets in the past and empty parking lots is not that 'fun'. Whereas most businesses would LOVE LOVE LOVE to sanction a club meet at their business, it adds revenue for them and free advertising. It's fun for us as it's way more enjoyable for people to have somewhere to sit and chat while having a bite to eat.
Hanging out in a parking lot in the sun with no where to go(No bathrooms, no eatery or drinks) gets boring and starts to weigh on people. Last meet not many showed due to heat and there is no escape from it either. Most left very early including myself.
Just a suggestion. I can possibly help to find a place. I may know one place called 'Soobies' , wouldn't that be awesome? Scoobies at Soobies meet? haha love it (That place wont work as it has a small parking lot but just loved the name). Just thinking out loud let me know what you guys think. I think we really do need a new location for the summer time. It was nice seeing people by the way.
