Alright calm it down ... there is a separate thread that Fletcher made to discuss these things.

I for one would make the drive if that's what the final decision is to be.
But things I also look at:
- Cost (the common issue)- the drive and food
- Safety - make sure I have enough sleep for the drives and my car is all good (As is should always be checked of course) Also, safety of other members coming along, caravan style.
- Organization that best fits the benefit of all coming to the event
- Reasonable distance - meaning for all in a state wide meet. If cost is already on our mind, then doing a one day meet is the best option. So, being able to go to the location, have fun and drive home would be on the mind.

To everyone
you epect some from OK to drive that far one day deal.. that kinda of a weak argument. Im sorry..

Lets face the real issue here, its not the drive its the fact that yall think Abilene is a "Podunk" little town that has nothing to offer

And some people have already said that they would drive to Abilene anyway.. for a minimeet
I'm from Needville, much smaller than where your from so I beat you on the "Podunk" town


Raymond put it best, wish I could have aritculated that way, or better. If it's there I'd try to drive there just like I would if it was in Dallas, Austin, Corpus Christi or where ever it was at.

Sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings, I really did not intend to. Like I said Raymond said it best, and the way I feel.
