We are already broken down by States in our number and I think we should just list bashes/gatherings by State and Calender dates. There is no need for regions or local break downs. You know what states you can go to in the time that you have for planning. But I would like to push for a list of TAC events somewhere in 1 area view by date and/or location. I have to have my summer 2011 schedule planned by December 2010. So last minute gatherings do nothing for me.

I think the TAC club should not define regions, but if they want to, members who share a geographical area should be able to do whatever they want. So if the Texas members (being as how we seem to be like rabbits) decide to organize their own events as a group, they should be allowed to call themselves "Texas TAC" or "TexTAC" or whatever, and the main TAC should support that.

That way, groups of individuals could set themselves up, work out their own way of holding their own events, and their own way of making members from other areas feel welcome when visiting the area.

My humble opinion.

I am putting a lot of thought into how to organize the events calendar in the magazine.
  • date order
  • state then date order
  • timezone then date order
  • some arbitrary "East" "Central" "South" thing
  • your suggestion?

How 'bout a database searchable by all of the fields listed above?

I vote we do it by height to weight ratio

Sure, that's the thing, isn't it? Complete freedom, no rule books.

I mean, who is stopping the Texas folks from doing what you describe right now?

But, the minute you want to put something down on paper about how you see things being done, you immediately open yourself up to criticism from someone else that sees it differently.

As my ole daddy used to say, "We'll jump off that bridge when we get to it."

Avoid rules, and avoid heartache.

As Aage stated in a previous post.

Any bashes (rallys) can be listed of course by date, then include a reference point, ex: 25 miles east of Flagstaff, AZ. and so on.

No regions or anything else. Before you know it; region officers, now we have to pay for their travel etc. I'm walking away from the other club just for these type reasons. Rob and Frank started out with the right idea KISS.

How about alphabetical order according to size with those favoring vanilla ice cream moved to the top. Seriously if the date is listed and then the location in reference to a major city,etc. this would make planning much easier. Or the reverse for those who have a limited distance to travel. zz

I think I'm going to go with simple date order. I think it's desirable that people might read about other events they wouldn't normally consider as even if they're not interested, they might know someone who is. If two events have the same date, the one that's run the longest or has far more people likely to go would go first. Does that sound fair?
