    Get Togethers

    All these get togethers seem to all be either on the West and South side of WI, would anyone be interested in attending, helping plan one around Oshkosh, Fon Du Lac, Appelton, Green Bay? Would really like some help with this, as I am mostly an OC virgin yet, I am available evenings and weekends.

    How do you know ? You didn't attend.. You consider THREE ( including the guy that set it up, paid to have a picnic area reserved at Bay Beach & bought enough food & drink for 40 ) people quite a few ? I will never again even think about setting one up again, way too much expense, then no one show's up, after like 25 said they would be there. I have better things to do with my time and money.. I will be throwing a private BBQ bash in my Back Yard this July but that's by invite only...

    Well excuse me. From Sussex to Green Bay is ~120 miles. I was at one of them last year, which if I recall correctly, was the one Landon the Ghost setup, which was the one that was moved from Bay Beach. The BBQ you setup, if I recall correctly, I was unemployed (January through March). Glock, if you want to accuse me of doing something or not, fine, but remember what events I've been to and which ones I have not. I am one member of over 4,000. WCI does not revolve around me. I am a single member, just like everyone else. I don't see you flaming any of the WCI leadership for not being at all the events. Are they any more important than anyone else? No! They go about their lives just like everyone else. This isn't only about events, this is about teaching other people about their rights.

    Now, if you can remember that, that would be greatly appreciated.

    IF YOU RECALL CORRECTLY the one Landon the Ghost setup was 2 years ago ( the big OC picnic ) where like 90 people attended.

    NOW, i was NOT flaming you or anyone else, chill ------- out !! I did simple asked you if you considered 3 people showing up to be a well attended function. I don't attend OC functions that are half way across the state because it is too far, Gas being expensive and all, plus I run a business so my time is Valuable.

    But I also don't rsvp a party then NOT show up..LIKE MANY DID.... that's rude since the guy that is organizing it is FORKING OUT a bunch of money for the Food, Drink, condiments,etc..based on the number of RSVP's ( I will be there's ) I don't flame people for not showing up, I also did not flame those that didn't show up after RSVPing..but I should have !

    Using the unemployed ( Jan -March ) excuse won't cut it...The Party was in early June & Bay Beach is only open Late May through early Septemberish


    This isn't only about events, this is about teaching other people about their rights.....----------

    Another option (that won't involve much cost) is holding an event at a restaurant. You could do a walk later. We did that at the second culvers meet in Madison. We walked state street after dinner. And if there is only a few people that show up, big deal.

    As far as the price of gas being a factor, I can relate. Somewhere in here is the "Car Pool" thread I started a while back...

    well there is the reason I asked for some help, was trying to space things out a little bit so maybe could get some interest. With things happening on the 3rd and the 25th, that would leave the 11th and 18th for this month, anyone interested in either of those dates, or is that too much in one month?

    Glock34, your right it was rude of the RSVP's to not show up. But I think it's a bit of a stretch to jump to I will never do one. Why not just change the way you do it like was mentioned? I'm all for picnics, restaurants, whatever. But me personally I would make it a bring what you want\potluck kinda picnic, or a prepay. Or just do a restaurant somewhere. Don't get all upset because you got burned. Yea it sucks some times but we should be learning from our mistakes too.

    You had a very valid excuse, The severe weather that day was to the far south and the far North of Green Bay. I am not like that, so I will not give you my address Those hats were very nice, I still appreciate it.

    Agree ! I did learn a lesson, don't plan a party for the general public at your own expense. Hold Private functions

    First of all, he's entitled to his feelings. Feelings are neither good nor bad, they just are.

    Second, I know what it is like to have people commit to something and then just not show up... it sucks. Particularly when we are supposed to be such an honorable group of people, taking our cues from Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and Hamilton. "Your word is your bond".

    Third, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me".

    Fourth, this was at a time when get-togethers were still very uncommon and Glock34 was trying to keep the ember alive by fronting his own time, money, and organizing expertise to fan the flames. He got shat on for his efforts and still continues to take heat... unbelievable.

    I like you, Motofixxer, but you need to learn the skills of understanding other viewpoints and not judging feelings. Why don't you use your gifts of hindsight, problem solving, and social skills to plan your own get-together; you're kinda' centrally located, the weather is beautiful, and there's
    plenty of open dates.

    I completely, understood what he was saying and why he felt that way. I made the assumption that was why he decided to fund it. I just decided not to write a book about the whole thing and simply made a short friendly suggestion. Sometimes we all need a friendly, nudge about jumping the gun on something or whatever. Or a comment to pick ourselves back up, and get back on the horse.

    Somehow, I doubt Glock34 was offended or hurt by anything I said. I think he understood what I was saying. If you look at my choice of words, I was carefull to not criticize him for anything. We all have to remember that not all connotations transmit through printed text.

    I was simply saying we have probably all gotten burned. I personally have gotten burned by close friends, family and strangers for much more than $150. Does that mean, I quit doing what I do. No, I learned from it and changed the way I do things. So I was just making a suggestion from experience. If anybody doesn't like what I said, fine. We are all entitled to our opinions, and feelings. If someone wants to use what I said to further their mental growth, great, if not. That's fine too, no harm no foul.

    And I have planned a Get Together. It didn't turn out so well for the 5 attending and the shiny bracelets were not very pleasant. But I have my reasons for not planning more.
