northeast real meet?!?!?!
O.K., so I've seen a few meets local to me & thought about attending, but judging the fourum posts it looked like there would only be a few installs & more than a few people with nothing, but just coming to check it out, & then a meet that winded up being just that.
I've also noticed a few other meets that weren't too local to me, but within traveling distance of an hour or two, but they appeared to be a little lame also, & I'm sure even those that attended, or almost attended didn't treat the attendance of the meet as a real prority because of the above mentioned facts.
It then dawned on me that the problem is that our hobby is probably not saturated enough to produce a good local meet, I shouldn't even say that, as I haven't attended any really, but from what I've seen it appears that way to me anyway...I would asume guys in like calli would have an awsome meet because it seems there are just a lot more custom car stuff in general out there in la la land...
now I had a thought, what if the meet was organized as a larger geographical attendance, in other words instead of a small meet here & a small meet there, what if say a tri-state meet was organized for say the spring, or...what if a north east meet was organized, If there were many more people claiming attendance then there would also be many more that wouldn't want to miss this, so it would become a higher priority to them & the end result should be a much larger meet, the kind of meet that would change even those who considered a meet as a"... maybe if I'm not doing nothing" ,to a "I gotta go to this..."
just a thought....I do see the obvious problems with such a plan, of course it will take a bit more organization than just meeting in a mall parking lot...or would it?...I would think that a meet like this will require permission or a public place that wouldn't require that...A larger meet would be a bit more complicated, but I think it would be well worth the effort, & I know that I wouldn't want to miss it...
just food for thought....any inputs....??? :rolleyes:
